I drive by a pumpkin patch on my way to work each day and the little pumpkins are so cute – I love it when they start popping up enough to see from the road. I don’t know why this delights me so much but it is just a small thing that makes me smile.
Now that we are being bombarded with holiday releases upon holiday releases, I think it’s fair to post an anti-haul. To start, I have this Glitter Pop Peel Off Eyeliner from TooFaced because, what? If there is one area on my body that I don’t want peel products, it is definitely my eye area. Apparently, this is like glitter in glue that you paint on and it stays put until you peel it off. I would be the person who peels of their eyelashes. The colours look really lovely but the concept is lost on me.
Nude lip mini kits – two in particular that I keep looking at include the KVD Everlasting Mini Liquid Lipstick Set and the Mini Velour Liquid Lipsticks Nudes: Volume I from Jeffree Star. I just don’t need more nudes, I keep looking at them thinking that I am going to use them and I won’t – I look bizarre in nudes. Stinking cute mini tubes though 😛
This next palette is such a disappointment, I own the Violet Voss x Laura Lee palette and I love it – I use it all of the time. I am not her biggest fan but I was excited to hear that she was dropping her very own palette and it fell totally flat for me. It’s another warm toned palette with a black shadow, people. I am going to have to pass – I don’t care if it is the Cat’s Pajamas.
This eyeshadow palette from BECCA (Apres Ski Glow Collection: Eye Lights Eyeshadow) is also a pass for me, I thought that it was a collection of their face highlighters in a palette (which it is) but it’s being marketed as an eye palette and that just makes it seem lazy. Let’s slap some snowflakes on a compact and release it as a new product for the holidays, I don’t think so.
I think that’s it – I am not big into gift sets either but I haven’t seen any that especially annoy me. Gift sets go one of two ways for me, they include such a minuscule amount of product that it’s a waste or they provide a great overview of a brand – there’s no in between. What are you swearing of this holiday season?
Thanks for stopping by <3
PS – Who else is bummed about Tom Petty? All of the legends are getting so old <3
