Instagram Did Not Make Me Buy It – Make up

There are so many beauty products at the moment with so much hype and I’m usually first on the list to buy them but there a few things that are all over the internet that I definitely will not be buying…

Kylie Jenner Birthday collection Although I didn’t buy any of it, I loved the look of the vacation collection, but Kylie’s new birthday collection is a huge no no for me. Everything looks really cheap and tacky and not good value for money at all. Such a shame as I usually look forward to seeing her new products.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette When I first saw this palette I was really impressed with the range of colours, but over time when I thought about how I would use this I don’t I would be able to get good use out of it because of the shade range in the palette. Then the reviews came out and for the price of the palette it was just not worth the risk as it was getting a lot of negative reviews.

MAC Girls palette I know I shouldn’t judge this purely by the packaging so I wont…but i’m really not a fan of mac anyway. I love the names and the idea behind the whole range but it just isn’t for me at all. Also some of the pans look tiny and I don’t like how the shadows aren’t lined up.

Spectrum X Mean Girls This is the best collab in HISTORY. I absolutely loved this when I first seen it, but its just super expensive for me. You can get the burn book on its own but its £49.99. I haven’t yet tried Spectrum brushes so it isn’t worth me taking a risk on getting the set including the brushes.

KKW Beauty I love that the queen of the Kardashian’s has brought out her own range of makeup, after all she is the woman who introduced the world to contour. However I really don’t see anything special about her products at all. I would like to try them just to see how they work but in shipping, import tax and the cost of the actual product its sooo much more than I would be willing to spend.

Jaclyn Hill x Morphe As much as I absolutely adore the look of this palette it’s just so big. I know it’s a really silly reason to some people to not buy a palette but I only have one large palette which I just never end up using it. Its left in a draw because is just huge and also not something you can travel with.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer I have seen this so many times and at one point I did consider purchasing this, but I just can get over how big the brush is. I love using concealer to be really precise and I can’t imagine using a brush this big for under eyes. I also already have some amazing drug store concealers which do exactly what I need and at a fraction of the price.

Let me know what you wont be trying…

    Totally agree with you on the KKW beauty, I’m just so not fussed by it and put off by the import tax!
