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?
