Antihaul #2: What I'm Not Gonna Buy!
I seriously need to save some money, so to get myself in the not-shopping spirit I've decided to do another antihaul! Inspired by Kimberly Clark, antihauls have really gotten popular over the past few months and I love them even more than regular hauls. Sometimes makeup companies come out with products that I have no interest in whatsoever and I enjoy sh!t-talking them sometimes. Obviously this doesn't mean I hate the whole brand, or would never buy anything from them, but these products in particular are not for me.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glowkit
Where would I ever wear a colored highlighter? Music festivals aren't my thing and the only places I go to are school, work, the store, the beach, and the movie theater. I certainly don't need an entire palette of colorful highlighters. If for some reason I did want a lavender or blue shade on my cheekbones, I would just use a shimmery eyeshadow.
Becca x Chrissy Tiegan face palette
I love both Becca products and Chrissy Tiegen, but the highlighters in this palette look too dark for my skin tone and I already have similar blush shades in my Becca x Jaclyn Hill face palette. I'm sure the quality is amazing if you don't already have something like it!
Huda Beauty false lashes
I should just change this to false lashes in general. I kindly received a pair of beautiful ones from a brand several months ago and I hated wearing and applying them, no matter how nice they look. I know that these are a popular brand but I have no interest in them.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
I don't have much of a problem getting my makeup to last, maybe because I have dry skin. Therefore I have no need for this setting spray. Sometimes I'll use a setting spray to take away the powdery appearance of some foundations, but I'm happy with my Milani one and don't need to go higher-end than that!
Smashbox Covershot Eyeshadow palettes
I don't care how good, smooth, or pigmented these are, there is no way I'm paying almost $30 for a palette that is barely larger than a credit card. For ten dollars more I could get a full sized one from a lot of great brands.
Kat Von D Lock it Foundation
I've heard this compared to the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation, which I'm not a fan of. It is described as having high pigmentation and a matte finish, which is a combo that tends to accentuate my dry patches. I'd rather not waste the money and put it towards a glowy foundation instead! However, if you have oily skin this may be a better pick for you.
Too Faced Unicorn Tears Lipstick
I must admit that this shade-transforming bluish lipstick looks really cool, but it's a similar situation as the Anastasia Aurora Glow Kit: will I wear it? I'll probably try it on in my bedroom, but I would never wear a shade like this out and about. I'm also not into the big unicorn trend that is sweeping the nation at the moment, whether it is a palette, a lipstick, or a Unicorn Frappucino.
And that is it for this antihaul! Would you be interested in any of these products?
