FAIL! Products That Shattered On Me


Now if a product shattered, it probably means that I dropped it. However, I like to have my products be a little drop-proof, because everyone is bound to drop a product once in awhile, and I find even if you’re able to salvage it by putting it back together with rubbing alcohol, the product is still never the same afterwards. Here are some products that have shattered on me recently that I might or might not have been able to fix to give you some idea of the likelihood of their shattering (a.k.a., to see if they’re drop-proof).

IMG_3109IMG_3110Anastasia Beverly Hills Sugar Glow Kit – Now, this highlighter palette was absolutely gorgeous until I dropped and broke one of my favorite shades into pieces. It didn’t fall in a way where I could find all the pieces and put them back together with rubbing alcohol, and I’ve been paranoid about it breaking so I haven’t been using it since.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit – With this Glow Kit, it was beautiful until one tiny drop shattered all the highlighters into little pieces. Clearly, the Anastasia formula is rather prone to breaking. I attempted to put some of it back together with rubbing alcohol but much of it remains in chunky pieces in the palette.

ELF Heart Defensor Highlight – I used this as a more everyday, no-makeup makeup highlighter because while it was less pigmented, it still had a very pretty finish. One of the sides completely broke off into nothing after opening it one day. I’m not sure if this has to do with me traveling with it, but that shouldn’t be able to make much of a difference as I don’ t remember dropping this one.

Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Kit – This was a fairly decent eyeshadow palette with decent pigmentation and blendability. I dropped it on the floor and several shades completely shattered.

LA Girl Just Blush Blush in Just Natural – I actually really like this blush but it fell apart after awhile. I put it back together with rubbing alcohol but it still seems to fall apart.

Those were some products that shattered one me! Do you have any products that have fallen apart recently? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! Xo Whatever Lydia Does – xo


  1. Ahhh this post gives me anxiety. I don’t think I’ve shattered anything before. I’ve accidentally slung my eye cream across the bathroom, though. Lost a fair bit of it.
