Hey guys! This antihaul post is inspired by other antihaul posts by various bloggers and YouTubers and a general desire to not spend or get sucked in by new products all the time. We live in such a fast moving society and the whole trend/fast fashion is applying more and more to beauty. There is a constant onslaught of new products and turn over from brands that it is hard to keep up! I love makeup and trying new products, but I also want to stop and appreciate what I already have. So this is a post on products I won’t be buying (please note however that I generally love these brands and their other products).
Too Faced Sweet Peach Pallette ($70): I just don’t find a lot of these colours appealing – it is a weird mix of pink, peach, brown and purple. For the price tag I would much prefer to invest in the Chocolate Bar palette.
Nars Narcissist Unfiltered Cheek Palette ($85): Again, the range of colours in this palette is not appealing and I think not many of them would suit my skin tone. The red in particular would be incredibly hard to pull off. Also nothing will compare to my Tarte blush palette which is life.
Urban Decay Revolution High Colour Lipgloss ($36): I’m just not a huge fan of the texture of lipgloss. I only have one in my collection and the reason I like it is because it is a sheer formula, so I don’t think I would like these intense pigment lipglosses.
Nars Eyeshadow Duo ($55): The price tag on this seems crazy considering you only get two eyeshadows. So although the colours in this duo are really nice, I can a whole palette of beautiful pigmented colours from Zoeva for about $20 less than this duo.
What do you guys think of antihauls? Do you also find it a great way to slow down and actually think about the products we are buying? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
Thanks so much for reading, Christina xo
