Products I Regret Buying

Hi guys! Today I am going to share some products I regret buying. I was looking in my collection for products that I bought and don't really like or use much. I'm sure I have more than what's mentioned in this post, but I'm still trying to use things I don't use often so I might do another post like this in the future. 

So for these products that I regret buying, it doesn't necessarily mean these are bad products. It just means they didn't work for me, or that I just don't use them. 


The first is the Urban Decay Smoked Palette. Ok I really hate including this in this post because I love UD shadows. When this came out, I had to have it. Don't get me wrong, the shadows are beautiful. I just don't use this. I've seriously only used this 2 or 3 times. These are just colors I don't really wear. I like the neutrals, but I would just rather use my naked palettes. This was like $60 too I think :/
*I was also wondering if any of my readers would be interest in doing a palette trade with me? Like I said I've only used this 2-3 times and it's on good condition. I just don't really want it anymore and would rather someone else have it who would use it! If anyone is inserted please let me know!*

The first item is the Urban Decay Naked Flushed. This is another one that I had to have when it came out. I loved the idea of this palette and it wasn't bad on price. I've used this quite a bit, and I love the highlighter shade a lot! But the bronzer isn't a good color for my skin, and the blush is too pink for me. 

The next one is the Too Faced Leoprad bronzer. When I first got into makeup a few years ago I had to have this. I love the leopard design in it and it's a good color, but I just don't use it like I thought I would. It's more of a blush than a bronzer, but it's still a bronzy shade, so I just don't really know what to do with it. 

The next one is a Rimmel Blush. This has no pigmentation what so ever, so I was just disappointed in it. It was only like $5, so at least I didn't spend a lot on it. I love the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder so I thought this would be a good one too. 

Next is a Milani baked blush in the color Rose D'Oro. I have another shade and I love it, but this shade just doesn't work for me. I think I only used it one or two times.  It's way too orange. 

The last item is a Revlon Wrinkle filler. I bought this because I was super paranoid about the fine lines under my eyes and wanted to see if this would help. This product was complete crap and it was like $15. So sad lol. 

This is all for the products I regret buying! I might do another in the future but for now these are all the items that are in my collection that I don't like or use the most. 

Thank you all for reading, and again if anyone is interesting in trading palettes with me for my urban decay smoked palette let me know!

  1. Such a shame about the more expensive palettes, you could put them on eBay? x

  2. That's what held me back on buying that Naked palette. Bronzer is really funny and if it didn't work for you, I KNOW it wouldn't work for me. HAHAHA Thanks for telling us about this Ashley.

    1. I think they have different shades now of the naked flushes palette actually! I look at them though and I still don't think any would match my skin tone!
      Thanks for reading!

    1. Thanks Pilar! You should totally do a post like this!! I like the concept of the naked flushed palette, but the colors were all wrong for me!

  7. I like these posts because it makes me rethink some of those "must haves" and whether I would actually use them or not. I was tempted by the UD Electric palette but then had to be realistic about the number of times I would actually use it.

    1. I thought about getting that electric palette too! But then I realized I would probably never use it either lol

  8. This is such a great idea for a post! (Might have to steal it soon hehe) I was tempted to buy the Smoked palette when it came out because the colors are beautiful, but I didn't see myself using it all that often so I passed
