Sorry to be negative nelly today, but sometimes you just have to be honest and say that you actually don't like something or that it doesn't work for you...

Something which I was hugely disappointed and surprised not to like is the Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara. After using CT lipsticks, beach sticks and eyeshadows and loving them all oh so much, I was expecting great things from this mascara... It promises to be a 5 in 1 mascara with curl, separation, volume, length and drama.
Although I agree with the length and drama claims, I'm not hugely sold on the others, I found it to be quite clumpy on the lashes and it flaked really badly throughout the day (which is a pet hate of mine) and when I'm paying £22 for a mascara, I expect to love it and unfortunately I just don't.
Charlotte will be releasing some new mascaras really soon, which will hopefully be an improvement on this one, which is currently the only mascara available from the brand... maybe she's listened to feedback and found some areas for improvement, as I have read quite a few reviews on this, and it turns out I'm not the only one who wasn't impressed. I should be put off trying the new formulas when they are released, but I just love CT so friggin' much, I know I'll have to give them a go!

I was a little unsure wether to include the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in this post, as I don't dislike it... However I won't repurchase, which is why I have gone ahead with mentioning it. This primer works fine, it's nice, but it's nothing special, which is where my main problem with it lies... This has been massively hyped by bloggers and YouTubers which lead me to believe that I needed it in my life, despite it's hefty £29 price tag. I bit the bullet, paid the price and couldn't wait for it to arrive so that I could use this wonder product, and I was left feeling quite deflated by it.
I don't like the consistency of it, it's a liquid that can be quite gloopy and it doesn't look very pleasant. I also find that it's very hard to control how much of the product comes out, because it's so runny, it drips out without me even squeezing the tube and there can be a lot of wastage, which when I'm paying so much for a product, I don't want to be losing!
Good points; a little goes a long way, so if you can manage to keep it in the tube it will last a long time and it does keep makeup in place... I just think there are plenty of cheaper options out there which do just as good of a job.

Although I don't hate the Bourjois City Radiance, it really isn't for me... I suffer from dry skin on my chin and around my nose and sadly this just highlights those problem areas. On application it looks great, but once it settles it just ends up clinging to any dry skin I have, which let's face it, is never a good look!
I bought it on a whim when I couldn't afford to replace my bareMinerals Complexion Rescue in the hope that it would be really similar, which it kind of is, but just nowhere near as good.
For those with not so dry skin, I can see this as being a really great product, it's lightweight, dewy, fairly buildable and really brightening on the skin... It's also really affordable! I'm sad to say I don't like this one, because it's the first Bourjois product I wouldn't buy again, I'll stick to Healthy Mix in the future.

Last year at IMATS I picked up the Kiss Scrub Stick (now known as Saturated Colour), something which I had read about and really liked the sound of, this was no impulse purchase! It sounded like a dream product but unfortunately for me it just didn't live up to my expectations.
The idea is such a good one; a lip scrub in a stick form, no mess, no hassle, it's a sugar and balm so it exfoliates and moisturises at the same time, which I have no doubt that it does... I just can't get over the waxy finish it leaves on my lips and the awful taste, to me it tastes very artificial and I just don't like it.

I feel a little bit bad about including the Tara Smith Feed The Root Shampoo & Conditioner because I received these for Christmas and I had big hopes for this duo; it's the first Vegan and gluten free haircare I have ever used, it's also cruelty free... Sounds so good right?!
I felt like I had to use loads more product that usual to get some description of a lather and it was really hard to spread into the hair. It was as though I just had to keep using more and more to get it to go anywhere and it was quite difficult to work with. For someone with as much hair as me it was a real effort and a real pain which I can't be doing with.
The frustrating thing is that I actually really liked the finished result after using this, it left my hair bouncy and really shiny, I just didn't enjoy using it, so it's sitting in the back of my cupboard until I run out of the shampoo I replaced it with!

Are there any products you won't be repurchasing, or do you love any of the things I have mentioned?
