products I regret buying (not in a mean way)

I have been binge-watching youtube beauty videos.  It's seriously my new obsession.  Lest you think I am exaggerating, ask my boyfriend.  He will confirm that I am ignoring him for my favorites beauty vloggers.  And as much as I like their "best of" posts, I like their "products I regret buying" too.  Probably because they are kind about it, or at least neutral.  No haters there.  So I thought I'd have some fun and do my own regrets list too.  Here goes.....

I just bought a Make Up Forever 120 Medium Powder Fan Brush and it was beaucoup bucks.  It is actually a sensational brush of the best quality, I just really regret spending that much money on it.  However in my defense I looked everywhere for a fan brush and it was the only one I could find.  I was desperate and I paid for it.

DuWop Lip Venom Lip Gloss in Tulip.  In general I love the formula of Lip Venom lip glosses - they make me look like Lolita.  However this red one appeared so pretty in the tube but was too sheer on my lips.  I bought it on line at and don't want to go through the rigamarole of return shipping.  Bummer.

Back when I had long damaged dried out hair I was looking for the perfect curl/wave enhancing product.  I adore the Macadamia hair products because they are so nourishing, so I bought their Taming Curl Cream thinking it would be not only effective but hydrating as well.  But it did nothing.  Zero.  Zip.  Zilch. Nada.  Maybe I am using it wrong.

Similarly for curl/wave enhancing products I tried the Deva Curl Frizz-Free Volumizing Foam.  It came highly recommended by the sales assistant but I only used it once.  It completely made my hair dry and a weird texture too.  No offense to Deva Curl but what a waste.

This one is no big deal because it was inexpensive, but still I resent the room Caress Body Wash, Daily Silk White Peach and Silky Orange Blossom takes up in my shower.  Someone named it a favorite of their's for having a classic old fashioned scent, but I don't really get that from it.  Disappointingly I get nothing.  So I keep it by the shower door with my foot scrubbing brush to cleanup my feet before I go to bed.  Not a total waste after all.

And last but not least was a HUGE expenditure.  L'Artisan Fou D'Ansinthe Perfume.  I thought it would be really cool to smell like absinthe.  And when I tried it on at Barney's along with a bunch of other perfumes it was the one that stood out and smelled the best.  However when I got it home it just didn't translate.  It is not for me at after all, and damn if I didn't buy a big bottle of it.

Do you have any regrets (no haters please)?
