New Makeup Releases – Eyeing and Not Buying series

Hello my pumkins and happy monday!!

Today, i am sharing with you a kind of beauty wish list and anti-haul, focusing on new makeup products only. I know i’ve already posted a wish list previously but there are so many releases i guessed it would be interesting for me to share with you what i will not be getting, what I will and my honest thoughts on these makeup releases. Moreover, I was supposed to post something new today but I didn’t have the time to take photos and I didn’t want to publish the blogpost if my photos weren’t nice.

[I got all photos from Trendmood1 on Instagram and I got the title idea from this youtuber]

Anyways, keep on reading if you wish to know my beauty wish list and anti-haul!

Beauty Wish List – what I am eyeing


Morphe released this photo a few days ago and omg, whatever this palette looks like it, I want it!! That yellow-mustard shade in the corner just speaks to me!


I never wanted to try any of Farsali’s products but the description of this one really interests me. It is supposed to blur any imperfections and a create a smooth base for your foundation! The packaging looks very pretty too!


This palette by Makeup Geek is everything, the shades look absolutely stunning and I definitely will get my hands on it!! Plus, it is actually called the Pumpkin Spice Eyeshadow Palette and the packaging looks very pretty and sleek!


Always in for new highlighters and this one by Becca x Hatice Schmidt looks so beautiful, I love the packaging and the shade!


I always wanted to get my hands on these babies, their reputation precede them but never could and now that Stila released new shades I am definitely getting this trio, especially that shade in the middle!


These face palettes by Stilazzi are gorgeous, these blushes are just too stunning and the packaging is on point. Never heard of this brand before btw!


The packaging of this Too Faced palette is to die for and the shades are honestly gorgeous!


These Ofra x NikkieTutorial highlighters are stunning, especially that Cloud 9 shade, it’s too die for!!


That face palette by Tarte is the cutest thing ever, I just adore the packaging and I know for a fact, that the blushes will be amazing!


I am extremely curious to try these loose highlighters out cause I’ve never tried any of Juvia’s place products, the packaging looks stunning!

Anti-Haul – what I am not buying


I hope I am not gonna get so much hate for mentioning these [or the next products] and remember that I don’t actually hate the brand, it’s just that I wouldn’t get this specific product. This product by Halo Beauty is not that cheap and I don’t think I’d like to risk buying it cause I am not even sure it’s not gonna work. It does look very tempting and I think it’s cheaper than the original one but either ways, I am interested to purchase it. Let me know if it works on you!


These highlighters by Jeffrey Star Cosmetics look absolutely stunning and I am still skeptical about whether I should put them on this list or on my wish list but I am not much of a liquid highlighter kind of person and there’s so much product for the amount I would actually use. But I don’t know, I might end up buying “Crown Jewel” cause the shade is gorgeous!


This palette by Urban Decay Cosmetics is so uninteresting and there are too many shimmery shade to my liking! Plus, it’s called “The Elements” so I am guessing it’s a zodiac palette and I am sick of this trend!


This face palette is OH MY GOD, the packaging is just so on point but WHY IS MAC COSMETICS NOT CRUELTY FREE!!!


This palette by Pat McGrath is absolutely stunning, that red shade is just wow and the packaging is like any other but why 125$? I mean I know why but WHY!! The name is really cute too “Mothership V: Bronze Seduction” I mean Pat actually thought about a cool name!


I am very skeptical about this Fenty Beauty release just because I feel like the shade of these products [which is the same] looks too light even though it is supposed to be universal and it is way too cool-toned and I warm-tones suit me better!


This is a new palette by Kat Von D, well it doesn’t look pretty at all in my opinion and the shades are not that nice, I don’t even think this palette is harmonious, like the shades don’t go with each other. This a big no for me, sorry Kat!


These new liquid lipstick shades by Maybelline look stunning but Maybelline is not cruelty-free so I won’t be getting any of them, sadly!


Urban Decay is one of my favorite brands but this palette doesn’t speak to me much as well, I mean it is better than “The Elements” palette but I am not attracted to it at all. The shades are very pretty though and the packaging is very cute!


I really like the fact that Huda Beauty releases eyeshadow palette following a specific color theme but I am just not attracted to any of these palettes. I am not attracted to any of her products in general, except her Desert Dusk palette cause it has this Arab theme that I love


This collection by Too Faced is way too childish in my opinion, like it looks like child’s makeup. On top of that, the shades of this mini palette are not even nice!


I am very curious to try that lip mask by Tatcha but 30$ for this tiny product, I don’t know, I’ll wait to read reviews on it to see. I mean, my lips are super dry and I need something to make them soft and glowy but in a budget :p

I could keep on writing about new makeup releases cause there are so many products I’ve not talked about but I will leave this part to you, let me know what are the new products you are dying to buy and those you are not interested in – [New concealer by Huda Beauty? or Oh!Honey Collection by Sugarpill Cosmetics?] 

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading this review and if you did, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to follow my blog [you can do that by email].

    The Makeup Geek Pallette definitely caught my eye too! So many pretty options. I’m loving all the fall shimmer.

      yes they are gorgeous!!

    That Makeup Geek palette looks like the perfect Fall palette! Great name for it.
    But ahhh I had no idea about that Too Faced Gingerbread Space palette – too adorable and I kind of want it now… I like their eye shadow formula a lot.

    Yeah I’m with you on the whole Halo Beauty magic pills thing… nope not gonna buy.
    What is WITH all these zodiac themed makeup? I would have been all over it when I was in high school but now, not so much.
    Apparently Pat McGrath palettes are the end all be all of all eye shadows… I just picked up a 6-pan palette (in Platinum Bronze) to try out – it “only” cost $70 (Canadian $, I think it’s $55 USD). Will let you know if it’s worth it…

    I agree about the Farsali skin tune, I’ve heard its really nice! I’m also with you on the Halo Beauty stuff, I just wish she’d actually make makeup and not these vitamins that might not work.

    I literally screamed when Morphe released the full image of that palette. It’s so insanely amazing! And those OFRA highlighters from Nikki? Oh my GOD. I can’t WAIT to get makeup crazy.

    Used to work at Mac and I can tell you that the brand is not longer cruelty free because it sells in China…

    • Joy🌻
      September 12, 2018 / 8:23 am

      I know that’s why I don’t want to purchase their products even though I want to! and that’s awesome that you used to work there!!

    Ohhh that Too Faced Ginger Bread Spice eye shadow palette, I think that’s my perfect palette. Shades are so gorgeous and I feel like it’s so worth the money as it can be day time and night time palette. Also I’m sure it’s going to smell incredible. xx
