October 2013 UNfavorites

I found less unfavorites this month (yippee!) basically I learned my lesson of not forcing dupes and also to quit with my impulse buying. So let's just get right into the five items I had some issues with this month.

1. First up is BH Cosmetic's San Francisco Palette, you can read my full review about this HERE but basically the shorthand version is awful pigmentation. This one will definitely not be my first pick, ever.
2. This is where I was looking to purchase Nyx's Jumbo Stick in Milk but I decided to just pick up this Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Eternal White instead believing it would be the same. No. This stuff is awful, it is not creamy at all so it won't apply evenly and doesn't blend out well at all. I think this will be reserved for when I feel like I need to write messages across my face because as a shadow stick it is just plain awful.
3. Horrible moment where I bought something and immediately threw away the receipt before trying it out. This Nyx Bronzer & Blusher Combo in Ibiza is just not a flattering pair of color for me, the bronzer makes me look dirty and the blush has basically no color. Also the packaging of it makes it difficult to not mix the two colors together for an even bigger unappealing mess. I don't even know what to do with this because it's just not usable for me at all.
4. This Secret Scent Expression in Va Va Vanilla was purchased with a desire to try something different. Normally I use the deliciously fruity scent of Summerberry but I decided I wanted a more neutral scent as to not do crazy things with perfume. Bad mistake. There is an overpowering fake vanilla scent to this that is so strong and awful, basically did the opposite of what I hoped to achieve. Definitely not repurchasing this once I'm through with it.
5. Lastly is the Pantene Pro-V Beautiful Lengths Shampoo and Conditioner, I only have the conditioner pictured because the shampoo was seriously so awful I just threw it away. Never have I used a shampoo where afterwards my hair felt dirtier than it was pre-shower. It seriously made my scalp itch and afterwards running my hands through my hair it felt like there was massive product build up at the roots. Really baffling. I kept the conditioner just to use as a hair mask on dry hair and something to shave with. Definitely can't wait to be done with this and never bringing it into my cleaning regime ever again.
