Products That Didn't Work For Me

Happy Easter lovelies! 🐰🎕💗

In today's post, we're going to have a little look at three products that I really wanted to work for me but they just didn't. Recently, I already wrote a full review on the Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara and why it didn't work for me here, but today I want to talk about two products from Catrice and Yves Saint Laurent.

The Catrice Cosmetics Light Correcting Serum Primer sounded incredibly promising when I first bought it and I'd seen many positive reviews about it on the internet as well. The packaging alone looks super pretty and with the pipette on top, it was very easy to get the right amount onto your fingers or face.
As it is said to be a primer, I almost always applied underneath my foundation, but when I realised that didn't work for me, I mixed it in with my foundation - that made it even worse!
Applied on its own it looked beautiful for the first few seconds. As soon as it dried down it looked horrible on my skin and I'm still not sure why! I'm actually really sad that this is such a fail product for me because I really wanted to like this.

The next product is also one I had extremely high hopes in - the Touche Éclat Face Highlighter Pen from YSL Beauty. I've been hearing so many positive things about this ever since I first heard of it and actually, I expected it to blow me away. But it surely did not do that in the slightest! It is said to highlight the chosen parts of the face and to fight a dull and sleep looking complexion with a medium to buildable coverage. I loved the sound of this working like a "magic wand" on your face and was super excited to finally be able to give this a try myself...
In all honesty, I'm more than disappointed. It does crease a lot underneath my eyes and around my lips whenever I wanted to "perfect" or correct those areas. Also, I noticed this to come off during the day quite quickly, especially when I was at work or out and about doing something.

I will definitely try the Touch Éclat a couple more times, but with the Serum Primer I've already parted ways and sold it on Kleiderkreisel... Maybe I need to use a different makeup underneath the highlighter pen, I'm not sure yet, but I will update you guys on that!

Have you tried any of these products before? If so, how do you like them? x


Let's get in touch!
