I’ve been on a no buy for almost three months now, so I’m proud of my resilience. Part of that was because I was making a big move and didn’t want to spend any more money on materialistic items. Another part was due to the saturation of products being released. Nevertheless, I have been recently intrigued in a few items that I will mention~
Urban Decay Aphrodisiac Eyeshadow Palette, $29 USD
When was this even released? I didn’t even know this existed until I was randomly browsing on the Ulta website. I am initially drawn to this because of the dark fall colors, but it doesn’t get a second look from me. Since I’ve been on my no buy, it takes a really unique makeup product to get me to commit and purchase something. This is a cute pocket palette, but I struggle to find who this is targeted toward? It’s not basic neutral enough for the everyday work person who wants a very basic eye look. It’s not dramatic enough for those of us who like color.
flesh beauty flipbook, $22 USD
This screams INTERESTING to me. Do I think it’s worth the price? WHO KNOWS! For all I know, this could be a traveler’s fantasy. When I first came across this, I thought it was a notepad, which made me seriously question the brand. But this is not a bad idea. Is it going to be a sold out holy grail product that will reach cult status? I doubt it, but I think it helps put the brand on the map. They definitely tried it with the creepy names for their products, and after their initial launch, they fell out of the limelight. I think the fact that flesh beauty came out with this, as opposed to following the trends of the same basic neutral palette or 1023902391293 highlighters saturating the beauty market right now, says something that deserves praise. Will I purchase? Maybe.
The next products I’m going to talk about are quite interesting… I should say that I love items that are multitasking or ones that take up very little space and can be easily taken with me in a carry on bag.
Beauty by Popsugar Face and Eye Trios
What went through my thought process:
Pros: small, compact, great for travel, simple colors
Cons: very little color choices, quite expensive ($27 for eye trio; $34 for face trio)
That completes my list of new makeup items that peaked my interest. What about for you?
