On Wednesdays I usually share with you products I am currently LOVING…hence the name, WILW (What I’m Loving Wednesday) but today I am actually going to share with you a couple of product “misses”, hence the name change today.
I really hate when I get excited to try a new product and it’s a flop. Let’s see which products flopped in my book…
First up, NYX ZaZaZu Lucious Volume Mascara and NYX XXL Lush Lashes Mascara. I bought both of these on a trip to Ulta this past summer. I had heard great things about NYX products and knew I wanted to try something and just happened to be in the new market for some new mascara (this was before I found my Younique 3D Fiber Lashes) and these just happened to be buy one get one half off so I had to give it a shot! Both of these had big thick brushes and looked like they were going to be perfect but they both went on really thin and just didn’t do anything for me. I hate that I didn’t like them but I will definitely try some more NYX products in the future!! Just not the mascara…LOL!
Another mascara flop for me was Loreal’s Voluminous Butterfly Mascara. Loreal carries one of my favorite drugstore mascaras so I was expecting a lot with this one but it just didn’t give me any volume at all. I really don’t like those little brushes but I trusted Loreal would be different and I was wrong. Boo!
My last flop for today are two Pond’s moisturizers. While I was staying with my sister and her family for a few days I accidentally left my very favorite moisturizer and so when I got home I went to Target and grabbed these two from the travel size aisle. Thank goodness I only spent $1 a piece on these because they just didn’t work for me. I am used to gel moisturizers and these were cream based. I grabbed a night time moisturizer and a day time one and both were just super thick and actually felt dry when I put them on my face?? It was weird!! Needless to say I ran back and got my old standby! I hate that these didn’t work for me because I love the other Pond’s products I have tried. Oh well.
I guess this just goes to show you that not every product works for everyone. I am sure there are people out there that just love these products and I wish I did!!
Have you had products that have flopped?
What are your fave NYX products??
