Hey guys! How’s it going?
Today I thought I’d do something a little different and do an anti-haul post. What’s an anti-haul, you might be wondering? Well, it’s basically beauty products I feel are over-hyped and I won’t be purchasing.
Are you ready?
Now, some of these products you may agree with me on and some you may not. And that’s ok. This post is all my personal opinion and if you disagree with me, that’s fine. If we all liked the same things, this world would be a very boring place. You have your opinions and I have mine. It’s all good.
Ok so let’s get started!
Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette
When this palette first came out last year, I wanted it. And badly. But it sold out so quickly it was insane. I did get to swatch it a couple times in stores even though it was sold out and I liked what I swatched and I loved how it smelled like gummy peach candy. Then Too Faced announced they were going to re-release it due to the demand. At first I was super excited. But then I just lost interest in it for some reason.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette
This is another I wanted at first, but the desire for it wore off after awhile from being sold out for a long time. And after awhile I realized the colors also just don’t really appeal to me that much (too much red) and I know I have some similar shades in other palettes and single shadows.
Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder
It seems like almost everyone on YouTube uses this powder to set their foundation and/or under eye area. I’ve heard mixed reviews of this powder. When I’ve played with it in Sephora, I just wasn’t all that impressed with it. But on the flipside, I do love their pressed translucent matte setting powder. I like setting both my undereye and my entire face with it.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
I might get lynched for this one. Everyone goes on and on about how good it is. I just can’t justify the price for high end concealers. I mean, when a concealer costs almost as much as a foundation… or even more than a foundation, that’s just crazy to me. I can find drugstore concealers that do what I need them to do. Other than that, if you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you’ll know I’m a fan of Tarte otherwise and own several pf their products (hell, their Rainforest of the Sea foundation made my January favorites, so there’s that).
Lancome Rose Highlighter
This is the latest product to be getting a lot of hype. Does it look gorgeous? Of course it does! To me it just seems really gimmicky and something I just wouldn’t want to use to ruin it. I’d just want it to sit on my vanity and look pretty. And that would be kind of a waste.
I’m just going to say this now even though I’ll probably get some flack for it. I can’t stand the Jenner/Kardashian family. Seriously can not stand them at all. I just don’t understand why and how these girls are as “famous” as they are. They all seem so completely fake to me. So that being said, I will never purchase anything that is associated with anyone in that family. Kylie’s lip kits are grossly overpriced to me and her eye palettes are just too basic and don’t look like anything special.
And that should do it! Again, these are just my opinions and if you love any of these products, then more power to you.
