Anti-Haul; New and Upcoming Releases!

     Hey there guys! I haven’t done one of these in so long, but I feel like it’s about the perfect time to do an anti-haul with the holidays approaching. I’ve been stalking Trendmood and Indiemood just to know what my wavering self-control is up against. Guys, there’s some gorgeous things coming out and I feel like I need to be held accountable. I’ve made two purchases so far, and I need to reign myself back in, because money doesn’t grow on trees. Let’s go ahead and get started with the festivities of me talking myself out of things! 

NARS Queen of the Night

     This one almost got me, guys. It’s a beautiful shimmer palette that looks like it has some beautiful toppers for your looks. Kind of like the Ignited palette that I bought, thinking it was going to be able to be noticeable alone. Wrong. That’s, of course, not to say that it’s not gorgeous. But when I say this almost got me, it almost got me. NARS has afterpay. Afterpay is my weakness- and I know it can snowball, so I have to stay strong. It’s beautiful, but like I have to ask myself for most things- “Will I use it?”. And if I have to ask myself that, the answer is probably no. And I don’t need to spend $58 on something I’m just going to look at and occasionally swatch.

Shu Uemura x Pokemon 

    I’m not even going to lie- I want this for the packaging, and the name. But the colors are very underwhelming. I have no experience with Shu Uemura, so who knows? It might be a bomb formula. But with the theme of Pikachu, this is what you came up with? The whole aesthetic of pokemon is bright colors and out of the box designs. The doodle Pikachu is to die for, but I don’t need another neutral palette with a single pop of color. The lash curler is really cute with the little charm, and it looks like they’re doing brushes, blush/contour, eyeliner and is that a wallet? It’s honestly adorable, but… why? 

 

Viseart New Grande Pro

   I don’t have too much to say about this- while I love the viseart formula, I do think that Rainbow palettes are little overdone at the moment. I mean I have a few palettes currently that would qualify as a rainbow palette, and cumulatively across my collection, as well. This is something that I just don’t need.

Ruby May Neon Lights Palette

  This is one I actively have to talk myself out of, I’m intrigued by the neon colors but I know realistically that I’m not at a point to implement them into my looks. This palette is gorgeous though, if a little eye-stabby. What can I say? I like the pain, and I like this palette. Maybe if some reviews come out I’ll be moved to buy it, but for now I’m not planning to buy it.

Morphe 3503 Fierce By Nature Palette

     I don’t know if this is going to catch me some heat or whatever, but wow a neutral palette with a pop of green. Yawn. Sure it has a couple of colors that are more red and that one weird yellow-green color above the bright green, but I’m not feeling this palette. Morphe hasn’t impressed me so far, so I’m not moved to buy any releases beyond my JCxMorphe palette that I bought on pure impulse. 

Pat McGrath Midnight Sun

   This one is on here purely because of the price.  I simply cannot justify a palette for $130, no matter how drop-dead gorgeous it is. Maybe if I come across it on sale or on reddit, I’ll splurge, but for now, I just simply can’t. But would you look at that.  I mean, I know it’s a nearly neutral palette with a pop of purple, so realistically I don’t need it. But I also know that I love the PMG transformative formula.

Miss Fame Beauty’s Under My Skin

   As I was scrolling through IndieMood I was a little torn, because when I tell you that for me the indie brands are killing it, I mean it. But this list isn’t here to convince me to buy things, but to not buy things. While I do love this palette and want to buy it; I’ll not be moved. This almost reminds me of PMG in the layout, and the colorstory kills me, but much like the Ruby Ray palette, I’m unfamiliar with the formula and so will most likely not be buying this at least until I know more about it.  

Kraken Cosmetics End of the World Palette

      This particular one is another one I’m very curious about- however, it is pastels. Which I already have on hand, so I may be passing on this one because I already am able to emulate having the palette. This is a beautiful palette that I know nothing about, I’d suggest waiting for reviews unless their formula is familiar to you.

Likely Makeup Clown Blush Palette

    Anything that I could say is pretty much already in the name of the palette- which is basically that I’m pretty sure that this is not for me. I’ve always thought yellow blush makes you look kind of sickly, and while it looks gorgeous on their model, I’m definitely not taking my chances. Those pinks are lovely though, but I can’t commit to a full blush palette if I only want a single color.

Hell Bites Beauty’s Holy Trinity Palette

When I look at this all I can think of is a darker and more imposing Secret Sinner palette from P Louise.  This one is substantially more vampy than the P Louise one, and to be honest, I don’t really do too much with vampy colors. I’m generally more for champagne or silver shimmers and natural tones with the occasional pastel or bright color thrown in. That being the case, pretty though this palette is, I may wait for one more my speed.

Eunique Beauty Elite Mini Palettes

   Now, this particular entry on this list is here because while it’s stunning, and it is, that pressed teal glitter looks too chunky for use around the eyes. Honestly, I’m not on body glitters or any of that, but eye glitters are my thing. It would be too tempting to put it on my eye, even though I can see the large hexagonal chunk glitter just sitting there. If you guys hear anything different on this particular one, I’d be interested to hear it. Because, honestly, I won’t lie. I’m lusting over that teal shade a fair bit and would love nothing more than to hear that I’m wrong in this case and that I can smear that beautiful color all over my eye.

 

     I think I’m going to end this one here, on a good note. These were just the things that stood out to me when I was scrolling through @theindiemood and @Trendmood1 so it may not be all of the new releases, just the ones I wanted to talk about. Honestly, I did a fair amount of scrolling because some of the things I actually wanted and just couldn’t bring myself to talk myself out of them. Aside from talking myself out of things, I’ve bought a few new products from brands that I have no experience with, like Midas, OMFG Cosmetics, Mellow Cosmetics and Melt. I may do kind of a rapid fire review post including all of these new products. Though I may need to break the post into two, just because I know Mellow is international and I’m not sure about OMFG. 

     If you guys are talking yourself out of some of the new releases, how are you doing with that? I hope you guys make informed decisions and only buy the things that will spark joy… or that you get at a hefty discount. That counts as joy, right?
