Makeup Tools #Fail Review

Makeup Tools #Fail Review

I have some stuffs in my stash that I wanted to tell the world not to buy, but somehow never could find enough anger in me to write a good angry rant about it. Not sure about the rest of the world, but Australia has pretty good consumer law. Some are free stuff, but some I bought, lucky I get to return them.

#Fail 1 : Home&Co Heated Eyelash Curler


Kmart Australia sells this first #Fail product that I have returned within 24 hours. It looks like a decent enough heated eyelash curler. You would never believe that it was $3, I didn’t either. Not surprising that this did not work.

It was warm when I touched the heating coil, and I made sure to follow instructions. I guess either my eyelashes are too tough to curl or this is a lousy product that does not work.

Even though Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler is like ten times more expensive, I know that it curls like a dream. Actually I own a discontinued Tweezerman Eyelash curler, which is also a great curler with good effect.

#Fail 2: Lip Finale

Read Review here. This was a major let down for me. It would have been great if Model’s Own Lip Finale works without causing the lipstick to curl up and die. After an hour or two, my lipstick just congealed into little pills and it looked like my lips were spotty. Not sure if the alcohol dries up my lips too much, or the lipstick reacts to the formulation.

On the plus side, it did work pretty well. The Lip finale stops lipstick from transferring to cups and foreheads. In the end, it was not meant to avoid reapplying lipstick throughout the day.

So far, I have yet to find a sealer that does not contain that much alcohol. But when I do you would be first I tell.

#Fail 3: Egyptian Magic Cream

The review here. The most expensive, one that I did not manage to return. See, I bought this on the plane, via their in-flight deals. Looking at the ingredients, it looked promising. If you have a normal to dry skin, this would have been a good product. It has olive oil, bee pollen and Propolis, even Royal Jelly. But alas, since this Egyptian Magic cream didn’t actually do what it was boasting, I felt inclined to give it a bad review. It’s not magic after all, plus at $45 AUD it had better be. What a lot of money for something that did not work!

Here’s an update of Princess Brat

After her final two molars, Princess’ skin improved dramatically. It may be still a little dry on the cheeks, but nothing a good quality cream cannot handle. So far I am using Sukin or things I have on hand that are more natural. She is growing up normal looking at least. Not sure how she learned Spock’s greeting signal. Let’s leave it at Live Well and Prosper! #Fail and move on!
