For me, disappointment isn’t always just because a product is a failure; it can be something that has high expectations and ends up so-so, too, which is why you’ll find a mix of ratings (though they definitely skew lower!).  In a way, I’ve become more accustomed to Urban Decay palettes being more of a let-down, but it is still a little heartbreaking to find so many of their releases on this list!  Giorgio Armani’s Daybreak might be the worst-looking lip product of all time.

I’ll also call out that while I selected just one shade, these formulas were flops: Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer, ColourPop Creme Shadows, and Wayne Goss Eye Kohls.
