Product Regret #9

Let’s just say I am on the HUNT for a makeup sponge that can rival my Stila double ended sponge (review link here). Out of my 8 product regrets post, 2 are of makeup sponges and let’s just add another to the bunch shall we?

It is the Forever 21 makeup brand Love & Beauty and it is mostly beauty tools. I have no idea about their actual makeup product because the local store doesn’t carry them.

They recently ran a, buy 2 get 1 free promotion for the tools. I actually wanted to get the tweezers; the sponge was an impulse purchase, and it is technically free but I still paid for two other products!!!

The sponge! Don't be fooled by the shiny packaging and the cute colours!

The brand. Pretty packaging isn't it?

What I liked about it:

It’s pretty.

What I didn’t like:

EVERYTHING ELSE. It is the exact same dud MYR 5 of a sponge I purchased from Mr. DIY (Malaysian version of the dollar store, regrets post link here). Hard as rock and fair warning people, there is a high chance of bruising when bounced of the face. Doesn’t expand when dampened, doesn’t soften either! COMPLETE WASTE OF MY COIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The nice display with the plastic cover masks the softness or lack thereof. Pressing it with the plastic cover on gave me hope! And it was crushed into a million pieces when I took it out!!!!!!!!!!!!

*slaps myself*

Repeat Harivaindaran K. Veeriah, don’t buy anymore makeup sponges unless you know it’s good!!!!

DON’T BUY ANYMORE MAKEUP SPONGES UNLESS YOU KNOW IT’S GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, the superfluous capital letters and exclamation points are to convey my utter dismay and disappointment!!!
