Hey Everyone! With the Sephora Rouge & VIB Appreciation Haul in full swing I felt that it was time to share an anti-haul of upcoming and recent beauty releases that I’m just not feeling. I did purchase a few things during the VIB sale but I definitely didn’t go crazy.
ColourPop Jelly Much Eyeshadows
I don’t know… I’m just not interested in these eyeshadows at all. I’m more of a powder shadow girl, and though I do like their Super Shock shadows I’m not feeling the Jelly Much texture. I feel like I got super into colourpop, bought a ton of stuff and then just burned out. I need a break from new ColourPop products, the constant bombardment of products has exhausted me. These Jelly Much Eyeshadows also seem like they would be really hard to work with. Thoughts?
Urban Decay Elements Eyeshadow Palette
The shades in this palette look pretty but there are hardly any mattes in it. I also get annoyed how every trend in the beauty comunity has this domino effect. BH cosmetics had a zodiac palette, now it seems like every brand is lining up on the element/zodiac palette. I do really like my Zodiac Palette from ColourPop but I don’t want more than one palette in the same trend, y’know what I mean?
Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette
I can see why someone might like this colourstory, it’s personally not for me. I love pink and red eyeshadow but against my pale skin it tends to make my eyes look almost bloodshot. Especially when I use reddish tones on my lower lash line I look like I’m sick.
Halo Beauty Kiwi Seed Booster
If shipping to Canada was actually an acceptable price and these vitamins weren’t ridiculously expensive I would be interested to try this. Many people are really slamming Tati over being a beauty YouTuber who’s releasing vitamins, like people actually think that she herself went into a lab, threw some stuff in a jar, shook it all up and put it in a bottle. NO. That’s NOT how these things work. She is the vision and the money behind halo beauty, but she has of course consulted with professional dermatologists and chemists to bring her vision to fruition. I’m not hating on Tati by anti-hauling the Kiwi Seed Booster, I just wish her products were actually affordable to someone who isn’t a millionaire.
Fourth Ray Beauty Skincare
For those of you who may not know, Fourth Ray Beauty is a new brand created by ColourPop’s founders. I’m skeptical of makeup brands creating skincare, and vice versa. One or the other is usually stronger. I normally love my ColourPop products but as I said above ColourPop pushes out their releases incredibly fast and if Fourth Ray does this I’m concerned about the quality of the products.
I also have reservations about buying “crystal infused” things. To be blunt… I personally think that the current spiritual crystal fad is nonsense. That’s my opinion, I get that lots of people believe in that stuff so I’m sorry if that offends you!
