Anti Makeup Haul

Hey, guys!
Today's post is a very fun one! All over youtube, I have seen these "Anti-Makeup Hauls" where beauty gurus share why they are not purchasing hyped up or new products.

DISCLAIMER: I am NOT bashing any of these brands or products. I am only telling you why I will be saving my money on these specific products. In the online beauty community, so many of us spend unnecessary amounts of money on products just because they are all the buzz (in reality, some of them are not good). I think these posts/videos are a good idea because it is a message saying it is okay to not purchase every new release. Okay, rant over. 

Urban Decay Shape-Shifter Palette- I've seen this palette all over Youtube and Instagram. Yes, it looks pretty, and the bendability of the powders seems incredible. My issue is that I will NEVER use the cream shades. Because of this, I don't want to spend the $$ on the whole palette. I think Urban Decay should come out with a powder only contour kit which would get a lot more use!
Urban Decay Go Naked Fragrance Oil- My issue with this fragrance and the other one I am going to mention in this post is that I don't want to purchase a limited edition rollerball fragrance. I don't want to fall in love with the scent and then not be able to get it again, or at least have a full-size bottle. I don't know, it just seems weird to me that so many makeup companies are coming out with limited edition fragrances.
Tarte Sweet Tarte Fragrance- This is the other fragrance I will mention in this post. My thoughts are the same as the Urban Decay one... Why am I going to purchase a product that I will never be able to get again?
The Balm Even Steven Foundation-Seems like an incredible foundation (from what I have heard and seen), but it comes with a tiny amount of product. I will not spend the money on a foundation that comes with not even half an oz of product. That's just ridiculous in my opinion.
Wayne Goss Brushes- These are brushes I have been intrigued by for a while now. I have so much respect for Wayne Goss, so I expect his brushes to be nothing but the best. Unfortunately, when I went online to order some, I saw the high price tag. I just don't think I can justify spending that much money for a single brush, or even a brush kit.
Kat Von D. Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette- Yes, Kat Von D. Shadows are amazing, but I am so over odd shaped packaging. I need something practical; something that will fit in my makeup collection. The colors look beautiful, but I am sure I can get them in some other palette that is a reasonable size and shape.
Ofra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks- I have never tried the Ofra liquid lipsticks, but the thought of a metallic liquid lipstick freaks me out. I just never think they look good on anyone, so I definitely am not planning on spending my money on these!
Smashbox Cosmetics Studio Skin Shaping Foundation- This is a product that was just sent out in PR and is not even available to the public yet. It is a double ended stick with a foundation on one side, and a contour shade on the other. In general, stick foundations never have a lot of product in them. My fear is that there will be the same amount of product in this foundation duo just split in two (meaning there will be half foundation and half contour shade). I just think that if I like the foundation, I shouldn't need to repurchase the whole thing.
Kylie Cosmetics Ultra Glow- Okay, Kylie Cosmetics is in the center of a ton of controversy. I only have one product from her (a lip gloss), and the product is average. I always marvel over Kylie's snap stories when she posts new releases. The only thing in all of her launches I have not been drawn to are the Ultra Glow loose powder highlights. I just think loose powder is super messy and I don't want to deal with that every day. If I buy a highlighter, I want to be able to use it every day. I am not down to deal with that messiness every single day.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trios- These blushes look beautiful, there's no denying that. My issue is that the pan sizes are so small that your brush will never be able to fit in the center shade. Also, I don't love the look of matte blushes on myself, so a matte blush line just isn't something I am drawn to.
Natasha Denona Sunset palette- I will never spend $130 for an eyeshadow palette. Morphe has incredible warm shadows for a FRACTION of the price.

Woah that were a lot of products! I had so much fun creating this list, and now I can't purchase these products!

Let me know if you guys want to see more of these types of posts!

Have a great weekend and I'll talk to you on Tuesday!
