Ever get excited about a new product launch, treat yourself to it, only to find out it's just a bit 'meh'?
I did exactly that last week.
And it sucked.
After looking for a new pair of jeans on the ASOS website and becoming overwhelmed by the 800+ choices I did was I always do when on ASOS for more than 5 minutes, I checked the 'new in' beauty section. This is when I 'ooo'd' over the fact that Yes To have new products out that I didn't have a clue about.
Fast forward roughly 24 hours and my DPD delivery man handed me an ASOS parcel containing - A useful pair of touch screen magic gloves (because it's freakin' freezing right now), The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%, the cutest trinket dish you ever did see and Yes To Argan Lip Oil.
Surprisingly the Yes To Lip Oil was the most expensive item of my order at £7.99. But I figured I love Yes To (generally), I can't get enough of argan oil based products and I'd never tried a lip oil before which must be more nourishing than a balm, or so I thought! On applying the lip oil for the first time I was surprised at the slightly sticky lipgloss-like texture and the pretty boring argan scent... but as long as it hydrated and moisturised my lips I could overlook them things! Did it hydrate or moisturised? Nope.
Basically, the lip oil gives the lips a nice sheen and the feeling that the oil is nourishing them but within 30 minutes it's soaked in and your lips are as they were prior to application. A bit fat fail really! I had so much hope for this product. I will of course continue to try out new Yes To products as I generally enjoy them, but sadly it just wasn't to be this time. But it now has me wondering if this is the same with all lip oils? If you have tried any lip oils before let me know how you've got on with them!
So there you have it, my latest failed beauty buy!
I'd be interested to know what your last beauty product fail was in the comments below. 1. Because I'm nosy 2. So I can avoid it!
