We all know how this usually goes, I pick a handful of new releases and roast them for being impractical, overpriced, boring…blah, blah, blah. This Anti-Haul is a tad different as it’s a bunch of products that I truly want but just can’t justify purchasing.
drybar x TooFaced Glitter Spritzer Sparkle Spray – You guys, it is freaking glitter hairspray – never has a product spoken to me quite like this. TooFaced is celebrating their 20th year anniversary with a bunch of sparkly products but this is the only one calling my name! The problem is, I don’t use hairspray, I probably wouldn’t use this up and would end up tossing it out in a few months. It just dropped on the Sephora app for early access, your get 3 ounces for $20 and it is taking everything in me to not add it to my cart.
ABH Norvina Eyeshadow Palette – Everything about this palette is perfection, I would use every shadow but after purchasing just about every ABH palette available, I have realized that I have a hard time working with their formula. I can make it work but I tend to only reach for the ABH palettes when I have a lot of time to get ready, it’s not worth owning another but I’d drop $42 simply for the shades Incense and Soul.
UD Born To Run Palette – Same thing here, I would definitely use this, the packaging is perfect but I have so many palettes that it’s silly to purchase another one. Also, I just purchased two KKW palettes and can we talk about how offensive it was to pay $8.95 for shipping!? But seriously, no more palettes this year because it’s just wasteful.
TooFaced Born This Way Foundation – I know that this isn’t a new product but they just extended the shade range and Cloud sounds like it would be a good match for me. I used the fairest shade in this foundation for awhile but it is too yellow for me, I would love to give it another go. The thing is, I can’t purchase another foundation any time soon; I have enough foundation to coat my entire body, everyday, for a year. They also have a new concealer that I am keen to try and probably will once I finish my current tube.
Dose of Colors x iluvsarahii Highlighter – I did pick up the eyeshadow palette and one gloss from this collection, I want this but I know that I won’t use it. I am over the highlighter trend, I don’t like the way that it makes my skin look, I think that it can easily look overdone and I own way too many. Do I own this particular shade in this particular formula? No, but I gotta’ skip it.
KL Polish Summer 2018 Collection – I want this, I want this even more that it’s on sale but I don’t paint my nails! What would I do with 6 bottles of gorgeous polish?! Nothing, I’d do nothing with them then they would congeal and I would throw them all out a few months from now. Seeing the pattern here?
I could possibly justify one or two bottles of polish for my toes but winter is coming and who’d care at that point?
For the grand finale, I am off all new skincare! I feel like I am just doing too much to my skin at the moment, it looks pretty good but I have a handful or products that really work for me and a drawer full that don’t! I don’t worry as much about makeup expiring but skincare definitely turns on you, again, it’s just wasteful to keep purchasing more. Plus, I am so over all of the bells and whistles that are packed into high-end skincare and most of my current routine is super affordable K-Beauty or drugstore pick ups. Anything that you really want but are feeling compelled to pass on? Be sure to let me know!
