These are the products that made me wonder how wonderful life would have been had I spent my money on McDonalds’s meals instead. Sigh!
Let the sob fest begin!
Dior lip and cheek glow
It shows no colour on my NC30 skintone, no matter how much I layer it on.
It goes on uneven and looks patchy. Again, couldn’t feel this lipstick contains any kind of oil.
Price: Rs.800 (Tadap tadap ke is dil se..)
Etude House eye primer
It doesn’t work.
Price: Around Rs.600

Since the color is “watered down”, I tried rolling it over again to build the pigmentation. Instead, it breaks down.
NYX vivid bright eyeliner ‘Violet’

When the eyeliner dries, it leaves a stiff feeling on my eyelids. Also, it starts breaking after some hours.
Natio pure mineral skin perfecting BB cream
I tried to make it work, I really tried. But I would take it off immediately after applying it. It refuses to blend and settles into pores badly. There’s Ponds beauty BB cream for Rs.79 and then, there’s this!
I couldn’t find a trace of Argan oil in this foundation from Lakme available for a size of just 15ml! But since the shade is a good match for my skintone and it has good oil control property, I’m hoping to get good use out of it in summer.
Marks and Spencer autograph fluid touch foundation
This isn’t a hydrating foundation. The only reason why I haven’t put up a review of it yet is because I want to see if it’s useful in the humid weather.
NEW L’oreal true match foundation
You know you love a foundation when you’re able to finish it even with 20 other foundations lying in your drawers. That’s what happened with me when I welcomed the original formula of this foundation.
But L’oreal ruined it for me when I went to purchase my 2nd bottle. It has reformulated the old version and the new one feels a lot more emollient. Also, there are visible shimmers on my face and even the same shade is a tone darker.
Yes, my soul slipped out of my body.
Price: Rs.1,200 something
This is supposed to be hydrating and an energy drink for the skin by replenishing moisture levels. Also, it’s supposed to give a dewy and healthy finish. Also, it doesn’t do any of that.
I found myself reaching for Glucon-D powder drink after trying to make it work.
Nothing special. I’m glad they have a “Back to M.A.C.” return policy. So, I can make some use out of it.

It makes the oily parts of my skin oilier and dry parts drier. It gives a polka dot face and the formula starts breaking down within an hour only. Also, it doesn’t suit my skin.
It got fungus. You can see more about it HERE.
You know those annoying pens that make it hard to write because somehow the refill keeps going back inside?
It’s exactly the same with these.
And also, after 6-7 uses, they kept on breaking.
I could get use only out of the shade ‘Over Board’ but only to an extent as I did lose 2cm of its body in the end. BREAKAGE!
Same issue as with the other two shades.
The shade ‘Get Paid’ was working fine for the initial few uses when it too decided to shock me by breaking in a half.

I was expecting a beauty blender knockoff, instead got a rip-off.

It’s one of those “you get what you pay for” products. It’s not awful but I did rather use my fingers.
Melted butter in heat.
Price: Rs.350 each
Ooh! That rhymes!
