Hello beautiful people, I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying the wonderful weather now that spring has finally sprung!
I noticed recently that some of my favourite YouTuber’s have been doing Make up Anti-Hauls (if you’re thinking Lo, what the heck is that?) allow me to explain. Basically an Anti-haul is where you talk about make up you AREN’T(that’s right) going to purchase and the reasons why, and lately there have been some launches that I just wasn’t interested in, so I thought this was the perfect time to write my first Anti-Haul post!
- just a little disclaimer, these are just my reasons and opinions for not purchasing these products, if you love them and the work for you that’s amazing, these just aren’t my cup of tea. xx
First up we have the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself eyes and cheeks palette $52.00 CAD. Don’t get me wrong, this is a very pretty palette, I am very drawn to a couple of the shades, but for $52.00 I could buy a palette that has all the colours I love with a mix of shimmers and mattes. The formulation of this looks very sparkly, and there’s only 1 matte shade, so I feel like I would need to be using this along side some of my other shadows, which also makes me think this isn’t very travel friendly. I haven’t swatched this myself, but some of the reviews I’ve read mention that there’s quite a bit of fall out with this palette as well (something to think about) I just can’t see myself reaching for this, which is why I’m going to pass on this guy.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in prismatic Amethyst $46.00 CAD. People in the beauty community have been going nutso for this little guy, and to be honest, I’m just not into it. I LOVE the Becca shimmering Skin perfector’s, moonstone is a holy grail, but with this particular shade, I just can’t imagine where I would ever wear it. I know there are lots of ways I could use this, like as an eye shadow topper or a lip topper, but in my day to day that’s just not my style. I know the formulation of this is flawless, and the packaging is super cute, it’s just another one that I can’t see myself using.
Too Faced Natural Love Palette $69.00 CAD – I’m not going to lie, I want this – BUT I do not need another neutral palette in my life at the moment. This looks like a dream come true, not only because I love Too Faced as a brand, or because the packaging is heavenly, but because it has 30 gorgeous shades in it. I think the price is not bad for the number of shadow’s you’re getting, and the pan size looks decent, but again I do not need to spend the money on another neutral palette… I will say though… my birthday is in July.. for any of my close friends/family members reading this 🙂
Last up are the Too Faced Love Light highlighter $38.00 CAD again,I wanted these – look at the embossing on them!! and the packaging is absolutely adorable. unfortunately, when I went into the store to look at them, there just wasn’t a shade that I thought suited my skin tone. The palest one is very cool toned and frosty, the gold is very gold and the champagne is a little too pink, none of them were the perfect fit. The formulation is gorgeous and silky, and will give you an incredible glow! I just decided to pass on these, which took a lot of will power.
Let me know in the comments if there are any items you’ve passed up on recently!
That’s all for now my loves,
until next time, xoxo
