this post is dedicated to things I HATE. yep, products i completely regret buying. this time around it's a mac edition.
snob lipstick, studio fix fluid nw15, blacktrack fluidline, pink venus eyeshadow, summer rose beauty powder
snob lipstick: now i know A LOT of people love this, and i admire anyone who can pull it off but on me it just makes me look like a massive tranny. and i'm generally okay with looking like a tranny, so you can imagine how bad it is. i often go back to this after i see people rave about it, and I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND. it's absolutely horrific, worst colour ever.
studio fix fluid: again, always go back to this when i see other people loving it but unfortunately just doesn't work for me. you can see in the swatch how ORANGE it is, and this is apparently the palest nw colour? i can just about get away with it mixed with moisturiser and a light hand but completely defeats the point. how do pale girls wear this?! i find it gets even MORE orange throughout the day too.
fluidline: another that people seem to love and i hate. it drags, fades and dries up so quickly. completely NOT worth the money. it's so difficult to work with and even though i'm very careful about putting the lid on properly, it's pretty much useless now because it's dried out.
pink venus: i bought this on a whim because it looks so pretty in the pan - a lovely pink with glitter. unfortunately that doesn't transfer to the eye AT ALL. when applied it's basically glitter with a tiny hint of pink. in my swatch it's layered heavily, but even then this just doesn't seem to work on the eye. you just end up with glitter all over, which is cool if thats the look you're going for i guess.
summer rose: again looks beautiful in the pan. but.. absolutely no pigment whatsoever. in my swatch this is literally about 20 layers ontop of fix+ and it's still hardly there. i know it's a beauty powder and not a blush but i just don't get how this is such a FAIL of a product. it had so much potential too.
