Saying Goodbye : Disappointing Products

It's not often I'll really talk about the products that haven't really impressed me, but I actually think people respond quite well to occasionally hearing a few negatives, rather than always seeing "this is amazing", "you need to buy it!". There isn't a huge amount that I've really disliked so much that I've wanted to write a bad review on, but most of these just don't work for me at all, so it's time to say goodbye and have a little clearout.

Charles Worthington are a brand that have been really impressing me recently, so I'm so disappointed to say the Style Setter Salt Spray didn't work for me at all. Despite trying it out a couple of times and using different amounts, it made absolutely no difference to my hair except making it sticky, crunchy and feeling really horrible! Models Own are also one of my favourite nail polish brands, but sadly the formula in the Fruit Pastel Collection just aren't up to scratch. The colours are beautiful, and I love the novelty of being scented, but somehow that resulted in nails that chip within an hour or so of application, which really just isn't worth it.

The Topshop Lip Marker in Hot Shot is exactly the same; I usually love everything from Topshop, and I'm still pretty convinced I got a dodgy one of this, but it dried out after the first use! It was only the day after first wearing that I went to it and could hardly get any product out, which for £8 is really a shame and such a waste, so I'll be sticking to their lipsticks in future which are lovely. Benefit Porefessional Agent Zero Shine was all over blogs when it first came out, and the majority had really good reviews on. For me, the powder was too dark and wasn't easy to blend, especially with the tiny, dense brush it came with. I didn't notice any difference in my pores either, and I've used much better powders from the high street that cost just a few pounds.

Last up is the Bourjois Liner Feutre in Ultra Black. I was a little unsure whether to feature this as I really do like the formula, it's very black and easy to use like most felt liners, but half way through application I found it quite drying and I actually had to go get another liner to finish it off, which I'm so disappointed with 'cause I'm quite sure this might have taken over from my all time favourite eyeliner, Supercat by Soap & Glory.

How did you get along with any of these?
