HATERS GONNA HATE

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.

  8. love this post! nice to get a honest opinion about these things. i'm with Gem though, i love fluidline and haven't had any problems with application or fading but it is kinda pricey so i'd probably try and find a cheaper version in Superdrug next time.

    hope your weekend gets better! -x-

  9. I love this! My friend uses snob and I cannot for the life of me understand why! It looks so chalky and tacky and makes your teeth look yellow. I used to use Studio Fluid in NC15 instead of NW but moved to NW because I looked really emo especially with my hair being so dark! You should sell some of your items on here or on ebay :) xo

  10. Ps - If your looking for a nice mac pink, try girl about town, it stays on for ages and is a really rich colour :) xo

  12. in love with your post title, made me laugh! hate it when something looks amazing, everyone's raving about it and it turns out pretty rubbish. and also, I too have seen a few hello world's around!

    hope you have a nicer weekend!

  13. Ah thank god for that. I was conned into studio fix foundation. In a word its shit. But hate how you can't be like nar thanks when they've spent the last ten minutes smearing it all owa your face. Have heard such good things about the illimasqua. Is about time to invest. Big up on the new course. X

  15. urghh student debt... don't even wanna think about it. All i know is that they take £60 out of my wages every month. Bitches. Feel sorry for those starting in 2012 who'll have at least 9k after 1 year! I never really liked snob either, I have brave which is a similar texture and it does feel weird... I prefer the amplified creme finishes from mac.

  16. Totally agree on snob! I hate it on me.

    As for SFF, NWs run darker. Maybe an NC15 would have been better. xx

  21. I was debating myself whether to buy summer rose or not. After read your review, I'm so sure now not to buy it. Thanks!

  22. I really enjoyed this entry! Will avoid! x

  23. oh no were they that bad x

  24. So right about snob! I don't get the hype about it at all?! x

  25. Oh gosh, i got a similar letter with a similar amount from the student loan company too. Such a downer!

    I agree with the fluideline - i have gone through two pots - i use it everyday but i don't finish using each pot because it dries up half way through. Decided not to buy another replacement! x

  26. I TOTALLY agree with studiofix foundation - I don't see the love for it - ORANGE and patchy as hell, bleuuuugh!!! x

  27. I stopped using studio ficx aaages ago, it's SO orange you're right! I was first recommended NW40!!!! (I know right!) and every time I went back I was 'recommended' a new shade, ended up with NC25! Bullshit!

    I use fluid line too and I was quite happy with it but you're right, it fades so much! Can you recommend an amazing black gel liner before I waste my money again?

    Merci buckets!

  28. i really like this post! interesting twist to focus on only mac products - completely agree about gel eyeliner, super dry!! p.s. i almost fell off my chair when i read that your student loan was almost 21,000 pounds!!! that's astronomical. no wonder why there are so many angry rioters in the UK at the moment... *whoa*
