Finally my first anti-haul!!
I’ve began to love watching Anti-Hauls on Youtube and reading all of your anti-haul posts. There’s so many products coming out constantly, its nice to see a different perspective and why someone doesn’t want to buy something. That’s what this beauty community is all about- honesty and discussion! Anti hauls are a great way to share opinions and also see through the hype marketing can create.
Fenty Beauty ‘Trophy Wife’ Highlight
-Ok, I definitely respect the fact that they created a highlight for deeper skin tones, but this is seriously so yellow I don’t see how someone is supposed to walk around at work with this on, no matter what skin tone.
Fenty Beauty Match Stix (shimmers and mattes)
-The reviews on these weren’t very good from what I saw and the shades really don’t speak to me. Also, they look super bulky!
Pat Mcgrath Labs Matte Trance Lipsticks
These are $52CAD. $52!!!!!! For!!! A!! Lipstick!!! The colours or beautiful but I just can’t justify that. They do look extremely velvety through the screen….FML.
Pat McGrath Motherships I, II and III Eyeshadow Palettes
These palettes are a cool $170CAD for only 10 shades. Excuse me while I go have heart palpitations. Honestly, the shades don’t even speak to me enough for even half that price.
Sephora Favourites Give Me More Lip
This set claims to be a $300 value but I’d honestly rather do without all of the mini sized lip products that will just get lost anyway and buy a couple lipsticks I’d actually use.
Laura Lee Cats’ Pajamas Palette
Everything about this palette is just so mediocre– the shade range, the cardboard packaging, the tiny mirror, the non-cohesive names and the $40US price tag. Also I really can’t stand Laura Lee on Youtube so I don’t want to support her product. No thanks.
Kylie Cosmetics Fall 2017 Collection
I was over Kylie Cosmetics before it launched and I was even more over it after the Colourpop scandals. The whole brand just seems really overpriced. I absolutely LOATHE purple so the palette and lipstick are out. Honestly none of the shades appeal to me except the rose toned ‘Autumn’. Did I mention I loathe purple?
Morphe 35O2 Palette
The legendary 35O palette now has a cousin, but I feel like this palette can be condensed to half the size and shades- they all look the same!! I have the 35O palette and think it’s great, but this one doesn’t excite me.
Farsali Unicorn Essence
Okay, at first I let the hype on Instagram take over and I had this in my shopping cart in about 6 seconds after it launched. I made myself wait to see reviews and I checked it out in person at Sephora and this really didn’t feel like anything special, not to mention they add red dye to it for the colour. Pass.
Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder Fall 2017 Collection
The packaging for this whole collection is just as gorgeous as the last one, but the prices of this collection are incredibly rich- $50US for a lipstick……$45US for an eyeshadow single….$60 for an eyeshadow duo, $85US for powder and $95US for primer. Yeesh! I love Victoria Beckham and think she’s swanky AF but there’s really no value for money here. She wants to “empower women” with this line but it’s only empowering me to be broke.
Tarte Limited-Edition Treasure Box Collectors Set
Well well well- another year, another unnecessarily bulky holiday palette from Tarte with microscopic pans. I don’t know about you but I don’t have room in my miniature apartment to store this RV-sized eyeshadow palette. Shame. Also, about 10 of those top eyeshadows basically look the same.
There we have it! I’m always honest and this was super fun for me to do. What are you thoughts on any of these products? Do you love them or love to hate them?
