Trying new things is scary. And in the makeup world, new purchases may not be so scary per say but they definitely aren’t free so when I buy new products I do a lot of research. Unfortunately for these products, the research did not prove conducive. These are sadly two purchases I’ve made that will not be making their way into my makeup bag again.
NYX Micro Brow Pencil – I tried applying this for the first time on the back of my hand and let me tell you, my hand did not appreciate it. I don’t know why but I could not get any decent pigmentation out of this product no matter how hard I pushed down on it. I don’t know if I got a dud or what but I honestly don’t know how this product could last all day if it couldn’t last a second on my hand.
L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara – I think I saw Zoella put this in one of the favorites videos but now that I’ve used it, maybe not? I’m not good at using wands that have funky, unsymmetrical shapes so that was difficult. And even after I’d applied multiple layers my lashes remained short and clumpy. Not the best combination.
