This is a good point - price doesnt always give you a good outcome. Some of the stuff I've ended up hoarding has been for more expensive brands.
My issue si that if I spend on something and if I don't really like it, I find it hard to get rid of it.
Recently I bought a Wet'n'Wild setting powder and it was terrible. It was a pressed powder but they'd nearly done too good a job, in that it was compacted so tightly that I couldnt really get any product onto my brush, let alone onto my face. but it was only €3/4 so i just threw it in the bin.
I also bought the Charlotte Tilbury magic concealer (as I like the foundation of the same name) but its awful. Its really tacky feeling and makes the fine lines under my eyes look worse than they actually are, so its a disaster of a product really. But because of its price, I keep persisting wtih it - setting it differently or applying with a different tool... when in reality it just belongs in the bin.
Its a shame with expensive products because its annoying to spend that amount on a rubbish product.
My main concealer that I use daily is the one from Catrice which costs €4 and I've repurchased multiple times.
I've a few MAC palates that I know I'm going to struggle to use. I just find them hard to work with and the colour payoff. Its not that I don't want to use them, but I just genuinely find them difficult. Might see if any of my friends might like them or something.
I need to think more and sample more before buying in future. I need to stop buying things just because they look nice.
