This is a popular video going around on youtube, so I thought I would put into blog form. Here are a few makeup and beauty products that are brand new, super hyped up, and that I will NOT be purchasing... (This may be offensive to people, then again this font is probably offensive too, but I warned you)
1. Kevyn Aucoin, The Neo Limelight. $58
I mean really. Purple and baby pink ombre? I could see this in a barbie pallet. Sure its pretty but for nearl $60 dollars Ill be just fine with my (Still Expensive) Mac blushes. really just fine. Its a pass on this.
2. Tom Ford, Clutch-Size Lip Balm $36
Tell me this is a joke. FORTY DOLLARS for a MINI lip balm?!? Its chapstick that fits in your clutch. Clutch. I mean the things that people bring the weddings, parties, and galas. I will take my eos lipbalm thats super cute for a fraction shove it in my backpack and be SUPER content with that...and for a FRACTION of the price.
3. Farsali , Rose Gold Elixar $54
Yes the product that you see all of these Kardashian wanna-be's dripping all over their beauty blender. but really? for $54 dollars there are so many other Kardashian, or Instagram cool products that are more than oil for your face.. oil people... OIL. So I will definitely NOT be spending my money on this.
4. Touch In Sol, Metallist Liquid Foil Lipstick Duo $25
At first glance I thought this was nail polish. Like the old trend I think Revlon (?) tried a few years ago, or those eye paints that Loreal (?) brought out. But lipsitck? I totally have to pass on this. Of the funky metal and glitter lipsticks Im not sure I could get my money's worth out of something that has the most common applicator and the been-there-done-that feeling.
5. NARS, Banc De Sable Highlighter Palette $49
First notice the word "Highlighter" Used above, and how deep the colors are. For deep skin tones I think this would be beautiful but you typically use one highlighter shade a day, and it would take an awful amount of makeup days to make up the 50 bucks you spent. I like to be consistent with my makeup and this is probably not realistic for me. So this may be great for someone, its not me, and I just cant jump on board with highlighter pallets.
