I think I am due for another anti-haul, I am getting new product alerts almost everyday and these are the items that I cannot/will not buy! It is so hard this time of year with all of the new beauty releases but sometimes you can have too much of a good thing (just say no).
I received an app alert from Sephora that there will be several new, exclusive products that will be available this weekend only and one of those products is from Urban Decay – their new Highlighting Fluids. I am skipping these because I cannot with good conscience own yet another highlighter and UD has been missing the mark recently with their new products. I had to scour the web for this picture, it isn’t mine – these will release this weekend temporarily and then officially sometime in March. I feel like some of these are the same shades as the powder Afterglow Highlighters so I am tempted but staying strong.
This next one I was so flipping excited about, Benefit’s Dandelion Twinkle is a pearly pink highlighter that I knew I would love as I am such a fan of the Dandelion blush. It is really pretty, I know I would use it but $29 for 3 g. of product when you get 8 g. in the other powders?! Who came up with that price point – I cannot justify the purchase and think it is totally ridiculous.
TooFaced Peanut Butter and Honey palette, I immediately put this in my cart when it was a part of the Platinum Perk early access and I thought about it and am just not going for it. This brand and their shadows are just too all over the place for me, I love the PB&J palette but have a few others that are just awful. I might hold out for more reviews but not buying it anytime soon 🙁
Makeup Forever Ultra HD Lip Booster – I saw Tati use this and was convinced that I needed it. What the hell is a lip booster? I am into makeup but a product just for prepping lips?! That is a hard sell for me – I use a lip primer already and really think that Tati just already has fabulous lips and that I would be disappointed in whatever this product is.
No lie, I still really want this primer – I am a huge fan of serum primers but again the price point of the PUR No Filter Blurring Photography Primer is outrageous! $33 for .5 oz. – what are these brands smoking? It looks really lovely but come on.
Finally, the new highlighter trios from Colourpop that are really just 3 jars of highlighter in a different package – are you kidding me with this? They do have new shades but the trios include old shades that many probably already own and it just seems gimmicky to me.
Clearly I am anti-highlight at this point but honestly, while I do use it everyday I just have so many that I hardly make a dent in them. Still pissed off about that Dandelion Twinkle though 😛 That being said, the new HoolaLite is amazing – review coming soon! None of these images are mine.
I would love to hear what products are testing your willpower and as always, thanks for stopping by <3
