I work on a make-up counter and see so many products being returned – these are the things not to waste your money on | The Sun
A MAKE-UP artist that works on beauty counters has revealed the most commonly returned products.
Sephora worker Monique is used to disgruntled customers returning make-up because it didn’t live up to the hype.
Taking to Tik Tok, she said that “not everything is for everyone” as she divulged the frequently returned pieces.
The first product was the Fenty Beauty PRO FILT'R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation which costs £30.
According to Monique, people complained that it “oxidises too much”.
In make-up terms, a foundation oxidising means it darkens or turns orange after it's applied to your face.

Unhappy shoppers have told Monique that it doesn’t last very long.
And despite having a cult following, one of Huda Beauty’s products is frequently returned too.

The make-up artist revealed that the brand’s #BOMBBROWS Microshade Brow Pencil “breaks easily” for a lot of people because it’s “too thin”.
The fourth product was the £25 Nars Climax Mascara because “it flakes too much”.
A full coverage colour correcting cream from IT Cosmetics also made the list.
According to Monique, customers complain that the Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream is “too thick and heavy”.
Another mascara that made the list was Too Faced’s Better Than Sex one which costs £25.
Urban Decay’s All Nighter Ultra Matte Setting Spray is frequently returned because it “leaves white spots” on the skin.
Beauty fans have theorised this is because the £28 product has powder in it to soak up any excess oil on the skin.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze is said to give “extreme hold” and a laminated look.
