NON-RECOMMENDATIONS: Disappointing Nudes


Disappointing nudes, we've all had them! Sometimes products just don't deliver and for today's post that exactly what I'll be talking about. These are three product that I DON'T recommend you buying.

Forever21's Safari NailPolish 

When I got this I thought I found the perfect nude. Turns out, I got one of those products that change color once you apply them. This one was kinda like a really sad excuse for a color changing mood nail polish.

Reasons 4 da hate:
-Nail polish color is actually a pale pink
-Streaky application for days ( tho a lot of more expensive brands struggle with pale colors too)
-Takes 5 coats to become opaque

Reason 2 love:
-Cheap as chips
Revlon Photoready Concealer

Another case of perfect in the tube, disaster on the skin.

Reasons 4 da hate:
-Medium coverage for the under eyes
-Cake-y look on the face after application

Reason 2 love:
-Good coverage for redness

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation

I was rooting for youuuu!!!

Reasons 4 da hate:
-Oxidizes (Nightmare for yellow-toned people like me)
-Product turns out to be a shade lighter after application

Reason 2 love:
-3 in 1: Primer, foundation, and concealer
(pink-toned peeps can probably get away with using this)
-Lovely eye primer

Have you had
any disappointing
nudes recently?

  1. I'm surprised that covergirl made the list O: Probably because its known to be one of the best drugstore brands but the cons you gave was very reasonable ^o^

  3. Thanks for sharing :) I've been eyeing the Revlon Photoready Concealer whenever I'm at the drugstore, but I'm glad I read your post first! I have oily skin and sometimes my foundation cakes like a nightmare. I would hate for a concealer to add to that haha

  9. thanks for sharing ! that nail polish really don't look good :)

  10. I love posts like these. As great as it is to discover new products via blogs and youtube videos it's always just as beneficial to know what to kind of stay clear from. I find that most white nail polishes are pretty rubbish to be honest! Not really sure why!

  17. OMG, I can't agree enough on the Revlon Photoready concealer, I bought it a long time ago and it was horrid, very cakey! And thanks for the warning on the foundation, I was thinking of picking it up but will give it a miss!

  25. Shame Safari Shaaaaame! It's so sad to think the nail polish wasn't nice, and that it was streaky. I always like looking for good nude nail polish. I'll skip it then! <3
