I need to go on a No-Buy (or Low-Buy, because typing that made me want to vomit a little in my mouth.)
I need to go on a Low-Buy (or, ya know, only buy things that are really exciting because I can’t possibly go on a Low-Buy, that’s crazy talk.)
Point is, I need to save some money, because the previews for 2015 Holiday Palettes are absolutely drool worthy.
Look at it. Look. At. It. Then look some more. The sleek packaging, the gorgeous, green-eye-flattering, fall colors. The burgundies. The peach!
My only gripe – besides the purples down the left and the burgundies across the bottom, it’s not in a particularly useful order. Also, it’s missing in the basics department. Like, if this were to be the only palette you packed for a weekend, the only crease shade you have is one medium brown or a medium purple. However, if you were to pair this with the Lolita palette (or any neutral palette, I ain’t no snob), you could get a few more well blended looks.
The packaging of this is pure genius. Tarte packaging always gets me right in the wallet. I mean, gut. If this binder were a purse, I’d own it. Or a jacket. Or a wallet. But I guess I’ll have to settle for a makeup palette. The value of this looks great, even if I can’t find the price. Between two blushes, a brush, and a mascara, we’re talking $100 before we even mention a single shadow. And considering last year’s palette was about $75, this would be a steal!
And it’s gorgeous. And it will be mine.
Sephora Give Me More Lip
I was so impressed with the six product version that it only makes me lust after this one more. I mean, it has YSL and Nars in it, for goodness sakes. I feel like I could buy this set and be content with lip products for a year. Or… ya know… until something super pretty comes along.
God, this post makes me sound like an addict.
And for one negative…
What. The heck. Is this packaging.
Personally, I’m not a fan of any of the Too Faced packaging. A lot of people call it “girly,” I call it gawdy. I want my makeup to look sleek and luxurious, or at least soft and pretty. Too Faced products always remind me of plastic toy makeup. And this? A dollhouse?
Personal esthetics aside, it’s just completely impractical. The dollhouse holding your mascara, lip product, and primer is completely useless except for an initial “Heh, that’s cute”, and the palette is so monstrous that it won’t fit on most bathroom sinks. Also, no mirror? All that space and no mirror???
