Slightly Disappointing August Products

It’s insane how fast August went by. I feel like I blinked and it’s almost September now!

Anyways, it’s time for my slightly disappointing products for the month. Sadly, both these products are from my Sephora Play box but let’s dive in:

The first disappointing product is the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme in Warm. I’ve heard that it’s an amazing concealer but it didn’t do much for me. The color was off…definitely not light enough for me! Plus the formula felt heavy and thick but was not full coverage.

The second and last product is the Hourglass Cosmetics Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick in Shell. It felt too thin on my skin and again wasn’t full coverage. This one was too light for my skin and overall just didn’t blend at all. How sad is that!

I was really hoping these products would turn out awesome but not every product can be a winner unfortunately.

What were you not-so-hot products for August?

Thanks for reading, my loves 🙂 til next time

    I had the same problem with the Kat Von D Lock It Concealer, I’ve heard such great things about it. I got a sample from Sephora as well. I liked the consistency of the formula but even after going in store to check out the variety of colors offered, literally NOTHING matched my skin. So disappointing.

  2. Ah I received the foundation as well, I liked it but it had a really weird texture at times. I applied it again a few days ago and it was patchy and just really weird

    I also didn’t think the KVD concealer wasn’t light enough. When first applied, it looked just the right shade, but when it dried, it looked a little darker. If I use this concealer to spot conceal blemishes and then set that spot with a little powder, it works great! The coverage isn’t super full coverage, but IMO its like medium-full.
    As for the Hourglass stick foundation, I love that foundation. I think maybe the mini sample sizes are formulated different maybe? For me it was also a buildable to medium-full coverage and felt really nice on my skin.

    I was the opposite about the kat von d concealer. It matches my skin exactly HOWEVER I am not . .. . . pale for lack of better words. Light suits me which means people like yourself will not match the lighter tones. I thought it was full coverage! I’m surprised to hear from so many that it’s not. Perhaps I am wrong about that. Thank you for sharing!
