Product Regrets #5

The flaw on this product regret can be resolved but I don’t want to add it to FiercePaint as a review on account of that very flaw.

I purchased a couple of Tesco brand brushes earlier this year.

I got a large powder brush and a flat foundation brush.

They were actually pretty good. Very affordable too. I don’t remember the exact price but I think they were somewhere between MYR 10 to 15 tops.

The large face brush actually worked better than the foundation brush. It was rather soft and I was pretty happy with how well it worked.

The foundation brush was a little bit stiff to properly apply foundation. I did have to go back with a soft kabuki brush or a makeup sponge but I could definitely make it work.

However, there’s a reason these two brushes made it into a product regrets post.

After about 2 months and about 3 deep cleanses later (foundation brush) AND after about 4 months and several deep cleanses later (large face brush); this happened to them.

I can definitely glue them down and make it work but after this happened I am;

#1 regretful;

and; #2 wouldn’t feel right reviewing it.

Product Empties #1

I have decided to do product empties posts just because I can give quick views on the products that I have used and if they helped me or did nothing for me. I could also easily include how much they cost (if I can include that detail) and where to purchase these products. These posts are not exclusive to makeup products but products that have either helped me with my makeup or just some facial skincare items. Although FiercePaint is dedicated to makeup, facial skin health is important for flawless makeup application. With that being said, here it is, my first ever ‘product empties’.

1&2; are Watsons brand wet wipes which I bought so that I can get discounts! HAHA!! However, they’re handy little things that you can use to just gently cleanse your face or even wipe your hands with. They’re just basic wet wipes with nice scent(s) and they cost MYR 1.20. Would I repurchase these? Probably not, unless of course, I would get in-store discounts!

3;Β This is a facial cleanser for men from the brand Fair and Handsome by the company Emami. It is an Indian based company and I picked this up at an Indian Cash and Carry store. I didn’t feel a marked difference with my skin as with the claims of this product that it makes the skin brighter in addition to giving a deep cleanse. Besides, I have never used cleansers in the past with the goal of brightening my facial skin. Probably using a few more tubes may give results but there is one ingredient present in this product that I don’t like whichΒ is menthol (itΒ is unfortunately present in many facial cleansers for men). Price; MYR 8.90. I don’t think I’d repurchase this.

4; This is theΒ Himalaya Natural Intensive Lip Balm which is really one of my favorite lip balm but I chose not to do a review on this because it isn’t so easy to find. In fact, very few Indian Cash and Carry stores even carry this product. I would repurchase this and I am hoping it is still available. I don’t remember the price but I am pretty sure it was under MYR 10.

5;Β Tesco Everyday Value facial cotton pads are cheap and they get the job done. I use them to apply my toner and take off my makeup swatches. They cost about MYR 1.50 for 100 pieces! They even come in packs of two at MYR 2.55. I already have two extra packs in addition to one that I am halfway done with. Repurchase? It’s on my next Tesco shopping list!!!

6; This is an empty bottle ofΒ Daiso facial cleanser, however, I have actually have a different use for the cleanser itself. You can read about itΒ here. Repurchase? YES! I already have a backup bottle in addition to one currently in use. I bought them pre-GST (MYR 5) but they now cost MYR 5.30 (including all Daiso items).
