Anti-Haul : Summer Edition

Friday, May 26, 2017

Before I actually share my Sephora VIB sale haul, I want to be a Negative Nancy, and share few products with you that I will not be spending my hard-earned quids on.

Tarte Magic Wands Brush Set l INR 3000

Unicorns and rainbows, as a 30-year-old grown-up woman, Unicorns doesn't excite me as much as ponies. Well, I am way over with this trend and I just don't understand the whole Unicorn Movement. The brush set looks more like a collector's item than a useful tool and me ain't no 5-year old to jump around the prospects of having magical Unicorns on my dresser.

Too Faced x Kandee Johnson 'I want Kandee' Eyeshadow Palette l $45

I am vary of Too Faced collabs. Let's just ignore the fact that 'Unicorns don't grow in the Amazon' (link), but lately, Too Faced has been a major let down. They come out with similar looking items but in cutesy packaging. It's like recycling the gift you received on your wedding (no, I ain't about that life). The shades look just like so many of their other recent launches, and I doubt if it would be woman of color friendly. The shades seem to have a lot of white pigment and would look chalky on tan skin.

Natasha Denona Sunset Palette l $129

This palette has my name written all over it, but my wallet doesn't agree. I just don't know if ever I would purchase a single palette worth this much quids. My only gripe is the cost, otherwise, I would have purchased this palette with my eyes closed.

Kylie Cosmetics x KKW Collection l $45

Do makeup companies realize that there are skin tones darker than NC35? This collection was knocked out of the radar when Trendmood posted the first glimpse. 4 shades, and each and each of them look like clones with different undertones. The finish is also something that I don't fancy, glossy finish does not go well with my wild hair which has a tendency to get a little cozy with the lips. The only shade I can see work for me is "Kimmie", which doesn't make the kit a worth of a hassle to purchase.

Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette l $45

I am over the highlight game, I am sick and tired. I have enough highlighters to last me in this life and afterlife. The last highlighter palette that I invested in was the Becca x Chrissy palette. I have no regrets about the Becca palette as it's more of a face palette than just a highlight palette with blush, bronzer et all. The Huda Beauty highlight palette hype, however, I am not buying into, and if I ever want to switch my career and be a makeup artist (who am I kidding), I have the ABH That Glow palette at my disposal.

So what are the summer releases that you are not interested in?
