Products I Regret Buying

We all know we've been there...you purchase something with the hopes of it magically changing your life, even though realistically you know deep down that it won't, and then you have to face reality when it doesn't live up to your expectations. I feel like I'm the queen of that because I've got a lot of product regrets to share with you today. This is only the tip of the iceberg, if I included everything we'd be here all day. Some things I've already tossed out or given away so those couldn't be included but I did want to include as much as I could. Some of these photos I took months ago when I first got this idea, some I took just for this post and some images I salvaged from either previous Instagram or blog posts and I did that to cut down on time since this is already going up a day late (sorry bought it but at least it's a holiday weekend). I'm writing my intro here after having already typed out the bulk of this post and you're going to see me mention selling used makeup on Poshmark more than once - I only sell the items that still have a lot of product left and were either used in a sanitary way or can be easily sterilized. I just wanted to let you know that I do take sanitary and sterilization very seriously when passing on used makeup because I wouldn't want anyone to get any sort of reaction or infection because something wasn't treated properly. I also want to mention that not all of these products are on here because they're bad products, though some are, others I just haven't gotten my proper use out of and that's why I regret it but I do still like most of these brands very much. Now that that's all out of the way, let's get down to the nitty gritty! 

 
 
 

Who else cringed real hard at this one? I know I did just writing it. Hopefully by me sharing my regrets I can help keep you from making some of the same mistakes I have. My main tip would be to shop at places that have a good return policy and except used/opened items. Of the online beauty/cosmetics retailers that I regularly shop at I know you can return used and opened items to Sephora, Ulta, Beautylish, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Giorgio Armani Beauty and I'm sure many more (my bby girl Charlotte doesn't refund used products but that's okay because she's coming to Sephora real soon). I think that is it for today and I'll also let you know here that I don't think there's going to be a mid-week beauty post this week. I'm working on a really big three-post project that features a brand that I'm very passionate about and I am having to shoot a lot more makeup looks for that than I had originally intended on doing but I'm hoping it'll all be worth it so just bear with me and if all goes well I'll be making it up to you with three posts next week. Wish me luck! ❤︎
