Anti-Haul | Products I’m not buying!

This list could honestly be so long, since there is many, many things I don’t want to buy, but I’ll focus on the newer releases. I give you, products I don’t give a crap about and won’t be buying:

Morphe Brushes – The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette USD38.00 + shipping

If I’m honest, I don’t really respect Jaclyn due to the whole Becca fiasco and this palette is ridiculously expensive! I would consider buying this palette to review on my YouTube channel, but since my channel barely earns enough income to pay for my Adobe Premiere Pro subscription, I can’t afford this palette :(. For a brand that’s meant to be on the cheaper end, I feel like Jaclyn must be raking in a lot over this collaboration.

Too Faced Natural Love Eye Shadow Collection $85.00

Super bulky packaging, boring AF shades and way more shades than anyone really wants in a palette… PASS.

Too Faced La Crรจme Colour Drenched Lipstick $31.00

This just looks disgusting and like it wouldn’t suit anyone. I’d prefer using this shade in a liquid lipstick formula so it has a bright pop of colour!

Nikkia Joy Eyelashes

I’m all for fellow Beauty Internet people making a living, but I’ve found she uses a lot of clickbait in her videos and I’m all for honesty. There are also many great lash brands out there I’d rather support right now.

 

Kat Von D Shade + Light Glimmer Eye Contour Palette USD49.00

Nothing against the brand, since I actually love the original Shade + Light Eye palette. However, the swatches of this palette that I’ve seen have not been great and the shades look too similar to me.

Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Highlighting Eyeshadow Palette Vol. III USD36.00

Similar to above, this palette is just so boring and all the shades look like barely different.

    Love your honesty! I have the new Tarte palette and I’m not impressed with the quality or shade selection. The Kat Von D palette was quite nice, but again I’m not that fussed by it…

      It’s always the shipping that kills ๐Ÿ™

    Loving this post Mel – what a brilliant idea, and so typical of your down-to-earth approach to blogging and vlogging! I’m not in the least bit excited about any of these either xxx

    I literally agree with everything you’ve said here so much! I have no desire to purchase any of those products and for the most I agree with your reasons why. I love these kind of posts and I really should do one!

    I was interested in the Too Faced Natural Love Eye Shadow Collection for a hot minute but came to the same conclusion that the size was massive and awkward too. Glad I passed!

      That’s the worst thing about some products, ridiculously bulky packaging! I find it’s especially bad with Christmas releases *cough* Tarte *cough*.
