Disappointing High End Products



I think I've written a dissapointing products post before. They're a rarity as I usually do a lot of research on a product before I decide to purchase it. A lot of these are raved about products, but everybody is different, and this makeup just did not work on my skin. I feel like I need to write a disclaimer and state that just because I did not like the products mentioned below, in no way means that I think all products from the brand are bad.

The product that spurred this post on is the Kat Von D Ink Liner. I've used the Tattoo liner before and loved it, but I received this liner in a little set. You may have seen I recently hauled this, as I bought it in Sephora last month, but it's already dry and unusable.

I'm aware it's only a mini liner and bound not to last as long as the regular ones; however, I think I used this around 4 times before the ink started to fade. I found myself instantly not reaching for this liner as I like a completely black line, but I decided to give it a go this morning. It's so dried up already, creating a patchy grey line on my eyelid. It's a shame because the other Kat Von D liner is so good. Needless to say, I would not buy or recommend this liner.

Another product I've recently mentioned on the blog is my YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick. This lipstick is beautiful; the packaging, the shade, even the formula. But every time I wear it, it leaves a disgusting taste in my mouth. I know other people have had this problem before and it really puts me off. I would try other YSL lipsticks, but not from that range.

I bought a Makeup Forever HD Foundation in Paris last year, but it just does not work on my skin. It's so raved out that I'm actaully gutted, but everytime I put it on, it instantly seperates and clings to every dry patch I have. I'm still hoping I'll find a primer that will work with this foundation as it cost me so much.

The last thing on my list is the MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara. To be fair, I've not found a mascara that I like as much as my Too Faced Better Than Sex, but I expected big things for this considering it was MAC. I don't think I'd ever buy a MAC mascara full sized, and luckily, this was only a sample.

I'm hoping I don't have to do another post like this is a while as I hate wasting money. Have you ever bought a High End product and found it disappointing?
