MAC x PLEASURE BOMB LIPSTICK
Being a lipstick hoarder and slowly building up a huge collection of lip products that can probably last me for many lifetimes, I just had to get this gorgeous limited edition lipstick by MAC knowing fully well that I probably have a similar shade in my stash somewhere.This lipstick is suprisingly very easy to wear and moisturising despite of its vibrant colour.
The rose goldness of this lipstick just really drew me into buying it. I didn't manage to get my hands on the infamous rirwoo lipstick so i was happy with pleasurebomb. This lipstick stayed on my lips quite well leaving a slight tint to them after. It wore off quite nicely without looking too patchy or horrible like some intense lipsticks do. As a MAC lipstick, I really cannot say any more about this lipstick apart from the fact I am sad that it is a limited edition item. I am pretty sure that you can purchase a very similar shade to this one but I really don't think that it can look as pretty as this rihanna packaging ;) Loving my dark lips at the moment with the autumn transition. I rend to wear MACs ririwoo on nights out where I want to look a bit more sophisticated and madeup (review here)

These products are not necessarily bad in any way shape or form, but it just didn't really meet my high expectations for them. I admit that I do get lured into buying products after reading rave reviews online and a bit of pushy selling by the sales assistants therefore I always give into temptation. These few specific product I have wanted for a while and I finally come to terms with myself and purchased them impulsely on random shopping trips out. However, although these products are okay they are not amazing like I hoped for due to the high price tag that comes with them.
CHARLOTTE TILBERRY POWDER & SCULPT BRUSH
There was a big rave on this brush and it is meant to be the best-selling brush out of the range. I agree that the shape of the brush is very ideal for contouring and I love using it with my bronzer to hollow out my cheeks a bit. The downside to this is that I find the bristles to be not as soft as I wanted. It even felt a little bit scratchy at times and I am awfully disappointed by such a beautiful brush but poor quality bristles! The brush itself is well designed in a sense that it doesn't go rolling off my vanity because of its innovative flat sides on the handle - but for the price, I feel that the bristles could have improved a bit in quality in my opinion.
BARE MINERALS SETTING POWDER
I first saw this product on Fleur de Force's channel and I was intrigued by the whole design of it as touching up on the go is a bit of a hassle sometimes. This swish new product allows you to touch up on the go with ease as it has an inbuilt brush that self dispenses the powder. At first, the thought of this was amazing for me and I thought it would be lovely for my handbag to touch up on the go. When I put this product into action, I found that the brush felt like it was too dense to evenly apply product onto my face and the product was totally non-existent. Furthermore, it was more challenging to use as I imagined it to be and it was difficult to gauge how much product goes onto the brush leaving my face either 'still greasy looking' or just 'caked on powdery'! I haven't touched it after a few uses and I really do regret buying this and dissapointed for the price I paid for it.
NARS MATTE MULTIPLE
This product I wasn't sure whether it was such a dissapointment or not. I recently reviewed this on my blog [here] and I explained how I disliked the application of it. I should have prepared myself when I bought this as the wide diameter of this product obviously wouldnt be that precise in application. Since then, I have used a small buffing brush to apply the product rather than applying it straight onto my face.
Do you have any products you regret buying?
