Products I Regret Buying!

I've been wanting to do a post like this for a while, so without further ado, may I present the products I regret buying!
The first product is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser for dark circles in the shade 20, fair. I regret buying this particular colour because it's very dark, particularly for underneath my eyes. I like to use a slightly lighter concealer for that area and this is darker than my actual skin tone, so it definitely doesn't work under my eyes. I've still used a lot of it, because it was expensive, but I wouldn't even repurchase it.

Next is the Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer in Sand. Again, this is slightly too dark for me. I also found that since I have really dry skin, this cakes up on me and though it conceals, it doesn't look natural at all. I have a hard time working with this, and I think it's better suited for those with oily skin.

My last complexion product is actually the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Nude. I know so many people love this but I find it to be pretty lackluster. The colour is, again, way too dark for my skin and I have a pretty hard time blending it, so it doesn't look very natural on my skin. I also wish it had just a bit more coverage. 

For cheeks, I have one blush. This is the NYC Mosaic Face Powder in Pink Cheek Glow.This is a beautiful colour, and I love the way it looks, but I don't find myself reaching for this very much. I regret buying this mostly because blush takes me forever to use up and I have waaaaay too many!

Moving on into eyes, my first product is the Pixi Lustrous Eye Primer. I love the colour, which is a sort of peachy gold hue, but the staying power of this is horrible. Though it claims to be a primer, it creases horribly and doesn't keep shadows staying on for longer.

The Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow Quad in Skinlights is my second eye product. While I love the pigmentation and colours in this quad, my issue is the same as the primer - the staying power is terrible. I have, however, used up quite a bit of these (I mentioned them in my Products I've Hit Pan On post, here).

My last eye product is this Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Fishnet. I love the payoff and consistency but I obviously can't use this colour on an everyday basis. I regret purchasing this merely because I don't have much of a use for it.

I have one lip product - the Polysporin Daily Lip Care. While this is a nice treatment, it feels very grainy on the lips and I hate using it during the day, because it is so thick and grainy. It isn't like a typical lip balm - it comes off on your lips in chunks (how attractive!).

The last product I have is something I did a haul on (if you want to see that post, click here). This is the Tresemme Smoothing Dry Shampoo, and the only thing I like about this is the smell. It doesn't take away any oils, and it doesn't do a very good job smoothing. What I'll do with this is apply it after I use cornstarch on my hair to get rid of the oils, and it gives my hair a nice fresh scent.

Those are all of the products I regret buying! If you're reading, what is your number one worst product you've purchased?
