Anti-Haul: Makeup Products I Won’t Be Purchasing Part 2

Today I will be writing a Part 2 to my Anti-Haul series. Many people seem to like these types of posts and I love writing them! If you’d like to read Part 1 to this series, click here. I always try to stay up-to-date on the newest makeup collections but lately it seems like there are 1000 products coming out every month! I don’t have enough time or money to catch up! This post is a way to let others know what’s coming out but also what I will not be purchasing. This is not me saying that these products are bad, just that I am not going to be getting them. If you’re interested in seeing what I am including in my anti-haul, just keep reading!

The first product is the ColourPop My Little Pony Collection. It includes an eyeshadow palette, lipsticks, highlighters, and super shock shadows. This whole collection is not appealing to me. I was never into My Little Pony and honestly, I hate when makeup companies collaborate with old shows like this. It seems very tacky. I do not see one full eyeshadow look that can be made from that eyeshadow palette and the gloss shades are not shades I wear. This collection seems like it is Walmart makeup for 10 year olds. I just don’t understand why older people would be interested in this, unless it’s just to own the collection. I was really disappointed with this considering ColourPop has been doing so great recently with eyeshadow palettes, concealers, and face powders.

This is the Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Palette ($14.99). I saw this first on Kathleenlights Instagram. I absolutely LOVE their MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals. Wet N Wild already came out with 6 different single highlighters. I don’t really see the point in this palette. Especially if two of the shades are not considered “every day” shades. Don’t get me wrong, I love mixing it up and wearing a duo chrome highlighter. I have one from Laura Geller that I love. I just don’t see the point in a green or blue highlighter. I hope they come out with a palette with more golds or champagnes.

Above is the Kylie Cosmetics Fall Lipstick Collection ($29 each). I’m just over Kylie Cosmetics honestly. I think it was very hyped up and now she’s trying hard to come out with different shades but in my opinion, they are just ugly. I am not a fan of her lipstick formula either. I feel like she’s come out with 20 nude shades that are all very similar. I am just not interested in her brand anymore.

Next is the Jeffree Star – Star Family Collection. The only shade I am slightly interested in is Nathan. The others… not so much. I don’t really go out of my comfort zone when it comes to lipstick. I like colorful eyes and then a nude lip. I’m also not a fan of the applicator on Jeffree’s lipstick. It’s difficult for me to get a fine line with it. He’s also coming out with a pink duo chrome highlighter and like I said earlier, I already have one from Laura Geller. Another part of the collection is a Creamsicle and Pancakes & Syrup lip scrub… I have never believed in those and I won’t pay $12 + shipping for it either.

Above is the new Sigma Beauty Shimmer+Highlight Palette ($39). Apparently they pressed some of their most popular shades into one palette. I think colorfully highlighting palettes are getting old. It seems like everyone is coming out with a new highlighting palette that is supposed to be “unique” and “different” but is really just shades that you would rarely use. The only shade in this palette that I would use on my face is Peaceful. Everything else looks like something I would use as an eyeshadow. If they had marketed this product as an eyeshadow palette, I would’ve understood a little bit more. But really, who can highlight their cheekbones with Zeal? It looks like a duo chrome with blue, purple, and brown. I don’t get it!

This is the Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation ($40) and Primer ($35). The main reason why I am not interested in these products is because I have enough foundations already lol. This seems like a great product with an amazing shade selection but I really need to get through a couple in my collection before I buy more. I have also been loving the Too Faced Peaches and Cream Comfort Matte foundation so I think I will be sticking to that for now. I did see a couple reviews on it making their faces oily by the end of the day but maybe using a different primer, powder, or setting spray would help that. If you’ve heard any reviews on this foundation, comment below and tell me your thoughts! I might get this once I go through my collection.

Lastly, this is the Becca Gradient Glow Pressed Highlighter ($38). I have never owned a Becca product but I swatch them all the time in Ulta. I would really like to buy Opal in the near future, but the price of it gets me every time! I will be skipping over this gradient highlighter because I am very pale and could only use one, two shades at most from this product. I think this is a great idea for people with deeper skin complexions. It is a great way to customize your highlight to your eyeshadow or outfit of the day.

That’s all for this post! I love making these posts even though I feel like they sound so negative! Again, just because I will not be purchasing the product does not mean that it is bad; it just didn’t wow me enough to want to buy it! Let me know your opinions on these products or products that you’d be in an anti-haul below!
