My daughter has been sick so I have not been able to write posts like I had planned, but today I wanted to share my anti-wish list for new makeup releases I would not buy.
Morphe 35T Dope Taupe Eyeshadow Palette: I have been wanting to buy a Morphe palette for a while now, but I would definitely not get this one. I think this palette should be given the award for the most boring palette ever because even though there are 35 shades, a lot of them look the same. The palette is affordable though so if you want a ton of brown and grey shades, then this is perfect for you.
$23 at Ulta
NYX Powder Puff Lippie Lip Cream: I have the Too Faced Melted Lipstick which has a cushion applicator, and I felt like the cushion absorbed a lot of product. I think this lipstick will have the same problem and I doubt it will be long-lasting and transfer-proof. Also, none of the 8 shades seem appealing to me, so I will pass on trying these.
$8.50 at NYX
Tarte Foil Finger Paints Shadow Palette: This palette includes only 5 shades. 3 of the shades have a foil finish and the split pan has a sparkling finish. This palette is supposed to have shades that are so soft and pigmented that you can use your fingers. I do not like using my fingers to apply makeup (even eye shadow), so I definitely do not want this palette. I also think this palette is really expensive for 3 full-size shades and 2 shades in a split pan.
$39 at Tarte
Tarte Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation: I love the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, but I think this Hydrating Foundation would be too hydrating for my oily skin and I do not like dewy finishes. I do like that the foundation is full-coverage, but I would like to try the Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation instead.
$39 at Tarte
Too Faced Life’s a Festival Collection: First of all, I do not mind the unicorn trend, but I am not a fan of highlighting since I have oily skin. All of the products in this collection have some form of shimmer in it to create a holographic effect. Besides the Rainbow Strobe Highlighter and the Unicorn Horn Highlighting Stick, the Unicorn Tears Bronzer is a bronzer that it is combined with a highlighter and I despise bronzers with a shimmer finish. Even the Festival Refresh Spray which is a setting and refreshing spray has opalescent pearls in it. The collection also includes the Life’s a Festival Eye Shadow Palette, 4 La Creme Mystical Lipsticks, and 4 Magic Crystal Lip Toppers, but I am going to steer clear of this collection because I would rather not look like an oily disco ball.
$19 – $42 at Too Faced
Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat Eyeshadow Palette: This palette includes 6 shades. 5 have a matte finish while the other has a shimmer finish. I do not want this palette because I feel like I would only be able to create 1 maybe 2 looks with it. I also do not think this palette is worth the price and I would prefer to get the full-size one instead.
$29 (available on the 22nd)
Wet N Wild Goth-O-Graphic Collection: This collection is supposed to be the opposite of the unicorn trend, but all the products are pastel-hued and holographic (just like the unicorn trend). I would not wear any of these products because like with the Too Faced Life’s a Festival Collection, I do not want to look like a disco ball. However, you can buy the complete collection which includes the MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder, 4 MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Metallic Lipsticks, the MegaGlo Highlighting Stick, 2 MegaGlo Highlighting Powders, 3 MegaLiner Metallic Liquid Eyeliner, and 4 MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Liquid Eyeshadows for $40.
$39.99 at Wet n Wild
