Blogmas: Anti Haul + Wishlist – Holiday Edition!

Hi, guys! I hope you all are well. Today I’m doing one of my favorites to write and read, Anti Haul + Wishlist! If you are a blogger I highly recommend doing one of these, they are just so fun the write. I really hope you guys enjoy this! What won’t you be picking up this Holiday season?


Maybelline x Gigi Hadid Prices and items vary.

With the exceptions of the lipsticks, I don’t like any of these items. Particularly the Jetsetter palette. That palette was made as a palette on the go type of item, but it is so big and the colors are not good for all skin tones. Also, that palette is just under $30. That is INSANE for a drugstore brand!

I think these items are overpriced and just not of good quality, with the exception of the lipsticks. The lipsticks have a price jump but it’s not horrible and the shades look beautiful.

Too Faced – White Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette, $49.00 USD

The moment I saw this I knew it would be on my next anti haul. Honestly, what the heck is this palette? Why is there a green eyeshadow in a “White Chocolate” palette? The four orangey/peach shades like almost exactly the same. The base shades look the same. What’s up with the random lilac shade?

All that aside, I do not think the same person who wants lilac and green eyeshadow wants three taupes and four peachy/orangey shades. This palette just doesn’t have a clear point of view, so I definitely will not be purchasing it.

Too Faced – Glow Job Radiance-Boosting Glitter Face Mask, $42.00 USD

The name is very tongue in cheek, just seems like Too Faced is trying too hard.

Aside from that, why would you want to rub, then peel glitter on/off your face? I love glitter as much as the next person but you really shouldn’t be placing it all over your face as a mask. I feel like this would make me break out like crazy and I just can’t wrap my mind around how weird and unrealistic it is. Another thing, what is the deal with “real gold”?! I’ve watched a few videos on Too Faced’s YouTube channel about this and they just keep repeating real gold. Have you ever heard Guerlain say “real gold” when speaking of their L’Or Radiance Primer? No. That makes me feel like the gold going into the Too Faced mask is questionable.

On the bright side, it is so pretty and would look great in photos.

FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna – Eclipse 2-In-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner, $20.00 USD

This is like Too Faced’s glitter liner 2.0. The colors look amazing, but it is so bad for your eyes to rub them, even if it’s just for the sake of glitter.

Urban Decay – Troublemaker Eyeshadow Palette and Travel-Sized Mascara, $39.00 USD

image source:

These all look beautiful, but I think almost everyone has the shades already. I think “Clash” is really interesting though!

Urban Decay – Vice Metal Meets Matte Lipstick Palette, $35.00 USD

image source:

I’ve heard great things about the Urban Decay lipstick formula and this palette, but the shades just seem too similar, too matchy-matchy. I’d rather buy the first Vice palette they created that has a variety of colors and finishes.


KEVYN AUCOIN – Electropop Pro Eyeshadow Palette, $57.00 USD

image source:

LOOK AT HOW PRETTY THEY ARE!!! I love Kevyn Aucoin as an artist and I’ve always wanted to try something from the brand. I think I’ll try to pick this one up soon!

Huda Beauty – #FauxFilter Foundation $40.00 USD

image source:

The before and afters on this is amazing. It makes your skin look perfect and I’m always up for trying a new foundation!

Kat Von D – Fawn Eye Duo $35.00 USD

KVD shadows are amazing, I have this quad but in purple and I love her eyeliner.

Kat Von D – Farm Sanctuary Everlasting Liquid Lipstick $20.00 USD ea

image source:

These shades look so beautiful and 20% of the retail price goes to Farm Sanctuary. Lipstick and a great cause?! Sign me up. I have my eye on the red shade, Thumbelina.

What is on your wishlist this holiday season? What won’t you be picking up?

  1. I totally agree with the Maybelline x Gigi Hadid collection, the lipsticks look nice but all the other products are just too expensive! Idem dito for Too Faced, the palette is so randomly put together. xx

  2. I’m with you on all the anti haul stuff! The Maybelline x Gigi stuff seems so awful for the price. The white chocolate bar palette makes noooo sense. The colors don’t go together at all. 👎🏼
