It's early days but i'm using a couple new products that are not as good as expected.  One is the NYX white liquid liner, the other is the Covergirl Uncensored mascara. Going to keep trying them both but it's not looking good. What products are you trying that aren't meeting your expectations?

most of the trilogy moisturizers that came in the wee baggy, they dont do anything for my skin and i dont like that! i mix them with oil to make them sit on my skin nicer. i also really didnt like the last covergirl mascara i got from the vault, not the recent vault but the one before that...? but yeah, didnt like it haha

Oh that is disappointing.  The trilogy moisturisers worked quite well on my skin and generally my skin was in better condition than normal. I just wouldn't pay that much for the full size product. I liked the other vault Mascara so much more than this one. The comparison pic on the packaging makes it look amazing but the results I'm getting are so average.

Nothing I'm currently using, but have often found products haven't lasted as long as I expected or lacking in pigment.

I tried the Monday Haircare as my usual was out over lockdown - cute bottles but absolutely terrible to use and the smell wasn’t the best either.. floral with a hint of fish I would describe it as. 
Might work for some but my scalp was so itchy argh

The L'Oreal Bambi Eye False Lash mascara and Garnier Nude Effect BB Cream.

I seriously dislike the fat wand and on the Bambi mascara, and the actual mascara is very average (doesn't give much volume or length). 

I've decided that I have to accept that my oily skin does not like Garnier BB Creams - any of them (I've tried almost all of them).  For some reason, I thought the Nude Effect one might be different ... maybe because I loved using Almay Smart Shade in the past, but the Garnier one is nothing like it.

Is that the CoverGirl exhibitionist uncencorsed mascara you don't like? I got it in the vault but not opening it just yet

I haven't got anything truly disappointing but I tried the Oasis night cream which wasn't as exciting as hoped. Awesome ingredients but not hydrating enough for me at night time (use it during day instead) but that smell is so gross! In saying that I hate  fragrance in skincare so is a plus on that front.

I have enjoyed using Trilogy products, the only thing I wasnt happy with was the brightening cream.

Helibabi- I was these when in new world recently. If it was CF was going to give them a go, but your hint of fish description not so sure now...lol

@Jackie: yes it is. Have been using the last couple of days and find it so lacking. Will trial for a further week before placing review. Though I doubt my feelings about it will change.

I have a new one to add. The paw paw ointment I not long opened, the top of the tube has snapped off inside the lid. So now I'll need to find a jar to put all the product in. Just having a little grr moment as the tube sits there mocking me.

Ooh how irritating @itsclearascrystal. That's how I feel about products that aren't working out. Like their presence mocks me lol.

Couldn't stand the NYX liner so have reviewed and stopped using it. Same with the Skinnies BB Cream. Still not sold on the mascara, though I don't think my perspective is likely to change sadly.

Covergirl Melting Pout. Received earlier this week, it's a nice product except it's soo hard to dispense from the tube. Review will be up shortly.

Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Roll On Deodorant - It might grow on me but it doesn't keep sweat at bay for long and I feel like I just smell like headlice treatment wearing it lol!

Garnier Hair Food Aloe Vera - I love all the other hair foods but this one doesn't have a nice smell and the texture is a bit different to the others, it's just not as good.

Tabucutie I remembered I had that white eyeliner as well but hadn't tried it. Was ok as a white liner but didn't work well as a base like I'd hoped.

Also every natural deodorant ever that I've tried has been disappointing.

My fave by far is the Sukin spray natural deodorant. Still need to reapply more frequently but the tangerine, mandarin, lavender and vanillin combo smells amazing so I tolerate the more frequent applications.

I'm the same Trudi, the papaya Garnier Hair Food is my favourite but it always seems to be sold out which is a pain.

I like a dewey makeup look, as opposed to matte, so I bought the essence Crystal Dreams luminizing fixing spray. But so far it has been really gloopy, with big fat drops of spray, and it doesn't seem to fix my makeup in place at all.

I have not shopped at Glassons for about 20 years lol. I saw a gorgeous hat so had to buy it then saw the leggings. I usually get mine from kmart or the warehouse too, cheap and comfy. But these are tight on the thighs but then loose under the knee and they ride up! Ugh horrible lol. Glad I only got 2 pairs, I will donate to the local op shop.

Voeu body lotion with cocoa and shea butter. Don't like the smell and takes a bit to soak in. Look forward to finishing this up.
