2018 Holiday Anti-Haul


Hello there, yesterday I talked all about the sets I loved for the holiday season and today will be all about the products that I just don’t think are worth it and that I will for sure me skipping over. I haven’t done an Anti-Haul in forever and I feel like I should do more, especially this time of the year where I could probably fill a few, though I did keep this one short. Maybe I will do another one before the season is over but for now, let’s get into talking about the products I deemed not worthy this time around.

Holiday Anti Haul 1

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 4 – Honestly, I have always wanted one of these, they always seemed like a great way to try out a bunch of Hourglass products, while I still think that is true I also think these are way overpriced. I am not sure that I would even use all of the products in this one, coupled with the fact that it is overpriced I will be skipping this one for sure.

Anastasia Sultry Palette – I have two Anastasia palettes and I love them both, however, this one is not calling my name, I’m not sure what it is but I just don’t find this one exciting. It appears to be just another neutral palette with the smallest pop of color that looks super out of place, I just don’t see a need for this in my collection.

Glam Glow Paint The Town Set – I know everyone loves Glam Glow and I haven’t tried them, so I can’t say one way or another, but I can say for sure that I think this set is kind of stupid. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy an exclusively face mask set, however, this is the same face mask just in various colors, which I do not get the appeal of.

Huda Beauty The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette – I like the Huda Beauty palettes that I have tried and I am lusting after a couple of different ones, however, this one is not on my radar and I feel like the only person who isn’t excited about this one. The colors just feel really overdone and like I already own all of the shades, so not excited for this one.

Urban Decay Elements Eyeshadow Palette – These colors look kind of interesting but something about the design of this palette puts me off, I think a lot of my dislike for this one comes from the fact that it looks like so much wasted space inside a palette. Sometimes pretty packaging is nice, but I don’t like it when there is just an unnecessary amount of blank space. I don’t like it.

Urban Decay Naked Cherry – This feels super done before and very late to the game, these colors are all colors that we have already seen in a ton of other palettes. Quite a few of the shades remind me of the Naked Heat as well, which I don’t like. This palette just doesn’t inspire me or get me excited so I will be passing on this one for sure, even though they are shades that I like.

Kat Von D Fetish Blush + Highlight Palette – I don’t like that they are marketing this as ‘Ultra-limited’, I do not like the whole fetish theme and lastly, I just don’t like the colors in this palette. I also haven’t heard a single good thing about this one, so I am for sure skipping over this one.

Natasha Denona Safari All Matte Eyeshadow Palette – I don’t know exactly what it is about this one but I just don’t like it, the colors aren’t exciting to me in this grouping. I have heard nothing but great things about the Natasha Denona eyeshadow formula, but I think if I am going to shell out this much money on one eyeshadow palette I have got to love every shade in it. So, this one might just be a me thing, but I will be passing on this one.

I know, not all of these things are holiday releases but all of these things have been released fairly recently and they are just things I am not excited about.

What are you skipping over this holiday release season?

  1. Same on the Hourglass pallette, I’ve always been tempted to try one and it should seem like a good deal but it doesn’t at the same time. The package always seems to be pretty bulky considering the pans are so dinky. Great post!!

    1. Yes! It’s like, I’m never going to use up a full size thing probably and it’ll give me a lot to try, but at the same time I have that nagging voice in my head reminding me that it just isn’t worth it, so I keep passing on it. Thanks for reading! 🙂

  2. As much as I love the look of the Hourglass palette, I just know that I would NEVER be able to finish the whole thing. I’m also not very interested in the UD Cherry Palette or the ABH Sultry Palette, though the packaging is stunning on both!
