I am back today with another anti-haul! There are so many new makeup releases that it is hard to keep up. I also really want to focus on shopping my stash this year so even when I am scrolling through new makeup, I am constantly anti-hauling stuff in my head!
Don’t get me wrong, there is also a lot of stuff that I WANT to buy but for this post, I am focusing on things that I don’t need and furthermore, don’t want!
MAC Cosmetics – Art Library Palette: Flame-Boyant
Guys, is this not the Too Faced Just Peachy palette? This MAC palette just seems so unoriginal and late to the game. Don’t get be wrong, its BEAUTIFUL! But I already have these colors in the Just Peachy palette. I also think its pretty expensive – I mean, of course, it is MAC but I don’t need to spend $48 on eyeshadows that I already have!
Too Faced x Erica Jayne Pretty Mess Collection
I have shared my opinion on this collection a lot on Instagram already. But as you can tell from this post, I am anti-hauling this entire collection. Too Faced collabed with Erika Jayne (from Real Housewives) for this explicit / Pretty Mess collection. I don’t watch Real Housewives and apparently Erika Jayne is inappropriate and vulgar in real life but I don’t get how it translates to makeup.
The whole collection is weird to me. Really, even if I stripped away the names and the concepts – the products by themselves aren’t up my ally. I still LOVE Too Faced though and am excited for a few of their other upcoming releases!
NARS – Mosaic Glow Blush
Here is another compact with a highlighter, blush, and bronzer all crammed together. I don’t mind all three powders in the same compact like the Pixi Beauty PixiGlow Cake but there needs to be some separation.
With the NARS compact, it would be impossible to just pick up the bronzer or highlight and I don’t want a muddy blush on my cheeks. I think its pretty but unrealistic at the same time.
Pacifica – Crystal Dust Supercharged Highlighters
I have tried a few things from Pacifica and I am not a huge fan. I saw this highlighter duo and it just looked boring to me. I think the packaging is distracting and makes it look more exciting than it actually is. I know if I had this in my collection, I would never reach for it.
Tom Ford – Lip Lacquer Luxe
Is this lippie seriously $57?! I don’t care HOW AMAZING this lipstick could possibly be – it is not worth $57! One day I want to try something from Tom Ford but I cannot justify this lip lacquer at that price. I just think it is insane. Its not hard for me to not buy this because the price is just insane!
Drybar – Flat Mate Boar Bristle Brush
Speaking of extremely expensive, here is a hair brush that costs $85! I understand how a brush like this may be better for your hair but I have been getting along fine with my $10 brush. I just don’t think this will make a big enough difference on my hair to justify $85. Is anyone else just in shock by how expensive that is?
Well, that is it for me today! There are lots of other products that I am mentally anti-hauling but this post is getting a little long so I am going to stop it here!
Let me know down below what you are anti-hauling and why! I would love to know!!
