There have been several disappointing products released over the past year, but these are ten that really frustrated me… They’re in no particular order! Now that these are out of the way, we can end 2012 and start 2013 on a happy, positive note going over all the bests of the year
The color payoff was disappointing, and I absolutely had to use it wet in order to get a somewhat smooth finish. I tried to apply it to the lid, and it was sheer and patchy, despite trying to pack on the color. It feels so soft to the touch, but it just doesn’t come together for me. I still attempted to wear it, even if it did look awful from the get-go, and it was slightly creased after eight hours when worn alone or over a primer. When I wore it over a primer, the pigmentation was better, but it still wasn’t great. The texture, for as soft as it is, doesn’t seem to hold together, which is what causes sheerer color payoff and patchy application.
I was excited for my order to arrive, but this is a far cry from the excellence that was Complice. It’s surprising to see a silver shade like Infini fall so flat, because I feel like there are so many silver eyeshadows on the market and plenty of them have rich pigmentation. The metallic nature of silvers also means they often go on smoothly, too.
