Disappointment is a state of mind, not just a poorly-rated product! Often, the most disappointing experiences are ones where I had higher expectations and the product just didn’t live up to them, even if it wasn’t a total fail.
I’ll also call out that while I selected just one shade to share below, these formulas were flops: Bite Beauty Daycation Whipped Blushes, ColourPop Cheek Dew Serum Blushes, Lethal Cosmetics Glitch Liquid Eyeshadows, NARS Air Matte Blushes, Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Sticks.
This year had more full-on formula misses than just really standout bad shades. There weren’t quite as many palettes–still plenty to choose from!–which are often where I find myself more disappointed. Urban Decay continues to take up far too many spots on this list 🙁
Here are some of the more disappointing products I tried in 2021!
