products i regret buying

I haven't bought anything new lately due to my current spending freeze for the month of August. And I haven't really been wanting to try out new products. The amount of makeup I currently have in my drawers is just out of control so I really need to use that up before even thinking of buying anything new. I did purchase these two items months ago though and have been testing them out since.

*Note: These products were purchased with my own money. Although they did not work me does not mean they will yield the same results for others.

Cutex Nail Polish Remover Pads: I purchased the non-acetone version first and then the regular version. I didn't like either. It claims that just one pad, which Cutex describes as "bigger and thicker than ordinary pads", should remove the nail polish off all ten fingers. Yeah, no. No matter the color - dark or the sheerest of sheers - I was using two or three pads to remove the nail polish. Since it didn't do as it claimed, this product was a total failure in my book.

Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara: OK, so I don't completely regret this. I'm 50/50 on it actually. I do like that this holds a curl really well, which I think is probably due to the shape of the wand. However, I do notice that after a few hours of wear, I end up with smudging underneath my eyes. Don't love that at all. So right now, I kind of like it but I doubt I'll be purchasing it again.

Have you used any of these products?
