Cruelty Free Misses: Products I won’t be repurchasing

Here are some products I won’t be repurchasing! I wanted to keep this post simple so I’ll go straight to why these following products didn’t really impress me! For a slightly more detailed review, please watch the video above!

Ingredients: *NOT* vegan

Isododecane, Cyclopentasilioxane, Polyethylene,iBarium Sulfate, Trimethylsiloxysilicate,lHydrogenated Polyisobutene, PhenyllTrimethicone, VP/Eicosene Copolymer,iPhenoxyethanol, Disteardimonium Hectorite,lPropylene Carbonate, BHT,iTin Oxide, Silica,lCalcium Aluminum Borosilicate,iMay Contain (+/-),lMica, Titanium Dioxidei(CI 77891), IronlOxides (CI 77491,iCI 77492, CIl77499), Bismuth Oxychloridel(CI 77163), Carminei(CI 75470), FerriciFerrocyanide (CI 77510).

Reason I won’t repurchasing: This product appeared dry and was difficult to scrape off using my brush. I thought I had just purchased a faulty product but it was exactly the same case with the second shade that I purchased. The colors are pretty and if you rid of the surface layer, you do get a decent wear out of it but I’m not willing to do that every morning or when I apply makeup on a client! I hope they reformulate this!

Reason I won’t be repurchasing: I was hoping this would be a shimmery coral gloss but instead it had the softest pigment and looked like I had nothing on.The texture of this gloss is more like a lip balm applied with a lip gloss wand. Soft and not glossy at all. It won’t do much if you apply it on top of anything. Quite disappointed really because its not cheap!

Reason I won’t be repurchasing: This feel like you’re applying runny oil on your lips and the pigment is poor. I couldn’t bear to leave this on the lips as it is or to use it on top of anything.

Neve Cosmetics

Pastello Eye liners in “Ebano/Brown” and “Vanita/Purple”

IMG_2332_fotor

Ingredients: VEGAN

Octyldodecyl stearoyl Stearate, Mica, Olus Oil, Hydrogenated Palm Kernel Glycerides, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Carnauba Wax, Candelilla Wax, Sesamum Indicum Oil, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Glyceryl caprylate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sorbic Acid, CI 77891, CI 77492, CI 77288, CI 77491.

Reason I won’t be repurchasing: I actually love their pastello lipliners that are creamy and smooth to apply on the lips but this wasn’t the same. Although they have a fantastic range of colours, the pencils itself feels very hard and almost scratchy on the eyes. Funnily enough the purple one is creamier and easy to apply with good pigment. However the green one looks more like an ashy/grey-brown and was rough and dry on the eyes.
