February Flops!

February seemed like I did outrageous amount of drugstore shopping! Don't get me wrong, I have tons of love for drugstore makeup, but this time around I ended up with some flops. These products were each featured in my February Hits and Misses video, but I also wanted to give them a quick mention here! 


L'Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Liner Pencil in Blue ($8.99)-  This is from the new limited edition Color Creations collection by L'Oreal. I thought this pencil was going to be a fabulous bright turquoise like the mascara, unfortuanately it was an average navy. I was just disappointed in the shade (I was under the impression that it was going to be a match with the mascara). For the price, I can get a better navy elsewhere.

L'Oreal Voluminous Color Creations Mascara in Turquoise Crush ($9.99) - The turquoise color is what caught my eye here, I mean who doesn't want turquoise lashes? Unfortunately, I found this mascara formula extremely thick, and it took like five layers for the color to show up (keep in mind that I have blonde lashes too). It was nothing like the original voluminous, what a disappointment! 

Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Ooh La La Sexy Eyes Trio ($12.95)- I usually love Physician's Formula liners, I have too many to count. I decided to give this one a try because there are three different liners in the kit, a pencil, kajal, and a pen. The pen was watery and poorly pigmented, the kajal and pencil were ok. The big downer for me was that these liners all had a vanilla scent to them, which  stung my eyes! Yikes! 


Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paints in Rich Russet and Chestnut Taupe ($5.49 each)- I know, everybody seems to love these. Not me. I found that these creased horribly and faded only after a few hours of wear. I really didn't like the wateryness of the formula either.. The colors are pretty, but these just aren't my style. 


What are your February Flops?

  1. That's such a shame about the Rimmel shadow paints! I've heard such good reviews about them but it's good to see it from both sides. Also a bit sad about the Loreal mascara I would have loved to see it on xxx

    1. Sorry about that, but I've already returned it. I really didn't want to put it on my lashes again because the formula was just too thick and gross! Thanks for reading :)

  2. Ah I wanted to hear that you liked the Scandal Eyes shadows. Did you use a primer under them or just stand alone by themselves?

    1. I've tried both ways, they're just not for me. They creased and faded badly! I just felt like the quality was very cheap.

  3. Kinda random but I was interested in your thoughts on the Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick shades they are bringing back (sandstorm, 5th ave red, icy violet, jungle peach, snow peach). YouTube review with lip swatches? Pretty please and thank you!

    1. Yes, I'm excited for those and I'll def pick up some when I find them because I love Revlon lipsticks :)

  4. I couldn't agree more about the Rimmel ScandalEyes. I was really disappointed by the watery formula as well and how sheer they were once you apply them. They look so nice and bold in the packaging but not so much on the eyes.

    1. Ahh thank you, I thought I was the only one! Yes, they just didn't look that nice on the eyes. It's one of those products that's much prettier when swatches, I hate that. Haha!

  6. Thank you for sharing your opinion on those products. It's really annoying when you waste money and get disapointed in a product :/

    1. It is annoying, luckily my drugstores let me return used items! Thanks for reading :)

  7. Aw, that's too bad that those cream shadows and that blue mascara didn't work out! I would've totally grabbed them myself if I didn't know better!

  8. My drugstore flop was NYC's liquid eyeliner! I bought it on a whim because someone on Reddit.com/r/makeupaddiction said it was super long wearing. Ugh, it was horrible! Good thing it didn't cost very much.
