My list of makeup and beauty I’m not buying seems to be rather large this year! It shouldn’t be though since I tend to get mighty excited about Holiday Makeup Collections but this year, well, I feel like there’s a lot of repetitive sets and palettes that I don’t really feel I need.
So, this is anti-haul post of sorts I guess!
Here’s what I’ll not be buying in the makeup and beauty world at the moment and why.
No, no, and no to Tarte’s Let’s Flamingle Brush Set which is obviously all Insta-show without any practical functionality. Not only do I find these brushes ugly AF but they look difficult to actually apply makeup with! And the Pineapple of my Eye Collector’s Set? That’s another big no! It’s big, bulky, and I likely have every single shade in that set already!
Another miss for me is the Too Faced Dream Queen Limited-Edition Make Up Collection. Again, too many repetitive shades and bulky packaging. My money was better spent on the smaller Tickled Peach Eyeshadow Palette as well as the Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette.
Another miss for me is the new Dior Joy fragrance! I typically love Dior Fragrances but this is soooooo basic! I thought it would be a little more complex but the scent is a very soft floral that had very short wear when I tried it in store.
Fenty’s Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette is stunning but it’s another skip for me as the frost factor completely scares me. Does anyone look good in frost? Please stand up now! The way they described this as icy frosty shades I was concerned it would just adhere to every dry area on my face. Thanks but no thanks!
What’s on your beauty no buy list?
