We asked you about the worst beauty product you've ever used, and some of them will surprise you


HOW MANY TIMES have you been swept away by a review of a beauty product, convinced by a mate to try a product or simply been intrigued by something in the bargain bucket of a pharmacy? 

It’s safe to say that I can tick all three boxes with ease and on occasion, I have been burned. Really, is there anything worse? 

As it turns out though, it happens more often than you’d think – here are the beauty products that left you cold, including some you’d never expect to see on a list like this …

Such as this one.
The Fenty foundation.”

Fenty Beauty Pro'Filtr foundation

This is beloved in some circles for its shade range and full coverage. However, this ROTTED myself and others.

Charlotte Tilbury has produced a couple of duds for some people.
Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette is SHOCKING. And I love the brand!
Charlotte Tilbury mascara – it left black smudges under my eyes.”

Similarly, there are a few products in Rimmel’s arsenal that people do not rate at all.
That Kate Moss rimmel contour/highlight/blush trio palette.”
Rimmel primer is basically suncream and makes you look like a ghost.”
Rimmel Insta Matte powder! So drying and left a massive white cast.”


Base products seemed to be the most precarious to purchase …
L’Oreal Infallible fixing mist, covered my face with white dots even after shaking for ages.”
Remesecar eye cream – supposed to decrease eye bags, it felt like putting cement on your face.”
Urban Decay All Nighter foundation!”
Huda Beauty Faux Filter foundation!”
Honesty, the beauty blenders from Penneys literally took my makeup off as I used it.”
The SoSu by SJ contour kit. Looked so greasy on the skin.”
Benefit The Porefessional primer basically made no difference to my skin or my makeup”.
Collection Loose Powder is sick.”

(I don’t think she means the American way of saying ‘sick’, somehow.)

The Make Up For Ever HD Foundation – overrated.”
I got Illamasqua skin case and it was the worst foundation I have ever put on my face.”

Here are the mascaras that left you with the fear …
Elf Cosmetics mascara glued my lashes together. One use, then bin.”
Any mascara by Benefit, they just flake like fecking lash dandruff.”
Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara [puke emoji].”
Dior Pump ‘n’ Volume mascara. Horrible shite. An expensive mistake.”
Every MAC mascara ever.”

Little Mix’s makeup range didn’t rock some people’s worlds …
The LMX eyeshadow palettes [puke emoji]. Ooof!”

… while Kevin Aucoin let another gal down.
The Kevin Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. SO disappointing.”


There were no fake tan brands roasted in my DMs. However, the same can’t be said for this tan remover.
Moxi Tan Remover wipes, didn’t remove a bit of it. Complete waste of money.”

Finally, Jen Atkin might need to go back to the drawing board when it comes to one product from her haircare line.
Hands down, the OUAI dry shampoo foam!”
