Anti-Haul: What I'm Not Going To Buy #1



For today I wanted to write about something different, and I thought that an anti-haul would be perfect. If you don't know what an anti-haul is I'll tell you. The YouTuber Kimberly Clark started this by doing a YouTube video saying what products she wasn't going to buy, and then everyone seemed to love the idea and started to do the same kind of video/post, and that's what I'm gonna do today. So many new products were and are going to be released this year, and I'm not going to buy all of them - my wallet can't keep up and some of them don't catch my eye at all. If you want to see which products I'm not going to buy, keep reading!

Para hoje eu queria escrever acerca de uma coisa diferente, e achei que um anti-haul seria perfeito. Se não sabes o que é um anti-haul, eu vou dizer-te. A YouTuber Kimberly Clark começou isto ao fazer um vídeo no YouTube sobre os produtos que ela não ia comprar, e depois toda a gente pareceu gostar da ideia e começou a fazer o mesmo tipo de vídeo/publicação, e é isso que eu vou fazer hoje. Muitos produtos novos foram e vão ser lançados este ano, e eu não os vou comprar todos - a minha carteira não consegue acompanhar e alguns deles não me despertam interesse. Se queres ver que produtos eu não vou comprar, continua a ler!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette

This is one of the best releases of this year so far! This palette is gorgeous, seems to be equally pigmented as the Modern Renaissance and the selection of colors is very different from what I've seen lately, without a doubt a good palette to have in your collection. BUT... the only reason I won't buy this palette it's because I know I won't use the majority of the eyeshadows. I don't reach for colored eyeshadows, maybe one time in a month if so. I like my browns and warm tones, what can I do? It's very different from every palette that I have in my collection, but why spend money on something that I will barely touch? I had phases that I would buy something and not use it, but now I only buy products if I'm going to wear them. I'm a little sad, I really want to get it because I have the MR and I love it, but I won't.

Este é um dos melhores lançamentos do ano até agora! Esta paleta é lindíssima, parece a ser bastante pigmentada como a Modern Renaissance e a seleção de cores é bastante diferente do que o que eu tenho visto ultimamente, sem dúvida alguma é uma boa paleta para ter na nossa coleção. MAS... a única razão pela qual eu não vou comprar esta paleta é porque eu sei que não vou utilizar a maioria das sombras. Eu não utilizo muito sombras coloridas, talvez uma vez por mês e é se for. Eu gosto dos meus castanhos e tons quentes, o que é que posso fazer? É bastante diferente de todas as paletas que eu tenho na minha coleção, mas para quê gastar dinheiro numa coisa que mal vou tocar? Eu tive fases que comprava produtos e não os utilizava, mas agora eu apenas compro um produto se sei que o vou utilizar. Estou um bocadinho triste, queria mesmo comprá-la porque tenho a MR e adoro-a, mas não vou.


KKW Contour & Highlight Kit

Oh my god... Everyone is giving too much attention to this brand and product. From what I've seen this product is pretty expensive and comes with almost nothing inside, and it performs like a contour/highlight stick from a much more affordable brand. And that packaging? So poor. But because it's Kim Kardashian everyone wants to have it... not me.

Oh meu deus... Toda a gente está a dar demasiada atenção a esta marca e produto. Do que eu tenho visto este produto é muito caro e vem com quase nada dentro, e funciona como um stick de contorno/iluminador de uma marca barata. E a embalagem? Tão pobrezinha. Mas como é a Kim Kardashian toda a gente quer ter... menos eu.


Any Kylie Cosmetics Product

The same thing as I said about KKW. When Kylie started her brand I was interested and wanted to try her lip kits, but I never ended up buying them. Now that her brand is out for a while, I see that her products just are over hyped. People say that the products are good just to make money on YouTube or because it's Kylie and bla bla bla. Have you seen the individual highlighters? My Wet n Wild highlighters are better than that. I don't know, her products just don't appeal to me anymore.

A mesma coisa que eu disse acerca da KKW. Quando a Kylie começou a sua marca eu estava interessada e queria experimentar os lip kits, mas acabei por nunca os comprar. Agora que a marca já foi lançada há algum tempo, dá para ver que os produtos dela são demasiado divulgados, estão a ter importância em excesso. As pessoas dizem que os produtos são bons apenas para ganhar algum dinheiro no YouTube ou então como é a Kylie e bla bla bla. Já viste os iluminadores individuais? Os meus da Wet n Wild são melhores que esses. Eu não sei, os produtos dela já não me entusiasmam. 


Any Jeffree Star Cosmetics Product

Jeffree Star... I think with his products the thing is the same as with Kylie products - too over hyped. But what makes me not want to buy anything from him is his personality. He doesn't respect anyone, especially the women. Sometimes he gives weird and awful names to his products.... nah.

O Jeffree Star... Eu acho que com os produtos dele a situação é a mesma do que com os da Kylie - demasiada importância, divulgação em excesso. Mas o que me faz não querer comprar nada da marca dele é a sua personalidade. Ele não respeita ninguém, especialmente as mulheres. Às vezes ele dá nomes estranhos e feios aos produtos dele... não.


Too Faced White Chocolate Bar Palette

I love the Chocolate Bars palettes, I have all three and I use them very frequently. When I saw that Too Faced created a new one I was excited, but when I saw the inside of the palette the enthusiasm stopped.  The colors are a bit random and it seems that they were thrown away randomly into the palette. Plus, I already have these colors in other palettes. Because of that this one is a pass too.

Eu adoro as paletas Chocolate Bar, tenho todas as três e uso-as com bastante frequência. Quando eu vi que a Too Faced criou uma nova fiquei muito entusiasmada, mas quando vi o interior da paleta o entusiasmo parou. As cores são um bocado aleatórias e parece que elas foram posicionadas ao calhas na paleta. Além disso, eu já tenho estas cores noutras paletas. Por causa disso esta não vai vir morar cá para casa.

Sorry if I was a bit aggressive in everything I said, but it's my honest opinion. If you like Jeffree Star, KKW or Kylie, there's nothing wrong! I respect that! It's just my personal opinion, you do what you want.

Desculpa se eu fui um bocado agressiva em tudo o que disse, mas é a minha honesta opinião. Se gostas do Jeffree Star, da KKW ou da Kylie, não tem nada de mal! Eu respeito isso! É só a minha opinião pessoal, tu fazes o que quiseres.

Tell me what you think about these products and what you aren't going to buy! 💋

Diz-me o que pensas acerca destes produtos e o que é que não vais comprar! 💋

  2. I really enjoyed reading this Carolina! I agree with you on these products. Why purchase something because of the hype. I may get the White chocolate �� bar palette though because I love Too Faced!

    1. Aw thank you so much for reading sweet! Yes I hate buying things just because of the hype, this doesn't work for me. If you buy the White CB let me know I would love to read your review! :)

  3. I loved reading this post! I also really enjoy watching those videos on youtube as well as it's so refreshing to just hear peoples real opinions on what they aren't feeling. I purchased the ABH subculture palette as I'm kind of in a green/ red shadow phase and I liked the look of the more "grunge" looking shades for winter (but I'm not sure what I think of the palettes quality yet). I also agree on Jefree Star, he just seems so rude! I can also never tell if people really like the products he releases or are just obsessed with him xx Brynn

  5. I agree with every single one of these! I'm glad Jeffree Star apologized but until he actually changes his behavior it isn't a believable apology in my opinion. As for the Kylie products, I was curious about the vacation palette but other than that nothing really draws me!

  8. I don't think I would every buy any products from the Kyle, KKW or Jefree Star ranges too, as I just think they're overpriced for what they are and you're mostly paying for the brand really x

  9. i'm really unimpressed by the new abh palette. the colours are not really what i love and some reviews say they blend very weirdly. i personally love jeffree star products. the liquid lipsticks are the best ones i have ever tried.

  12. I had the KKW contour kit and it didn't even show up on my skin. The Kylie lip kits aren't that great and Jeffree Starburst is just awful so I wouldn't buy from him either haha! I head that people are hitting pan on the ABH palettes after a few days which is very worrying!

  14. Comprei um iluminador do Jeffree (ignorando toda aquele show que é a personalidade dele e todo o drama) a pensar que ia ser fantástico, por todas as reviews positivas que vejo. Não gostei nada. A textura é esquisita, não é assim fininho como é costume e fica com um aspecto esquisito. Para além disso, para esta (má) qualidade, é super caro...

  15. I love the idea of anti-haul posts, they're one of my favorite types of posts to read these days! I'm completely on board with you about the KKW/Kylie beauty products. I did give in to the hype to try some Kylie liquid lipsticks when they were first released as a few of my coworkers were making an order and I had some people to split the cost of shipping with. I did like the lipstick overall but the more I thought about it, I didn't agree with the ethics of how the company was run (aka the fiasco of empty products, terrible return policy, and an unhelpful customer service team). When the rest of her products released I kinda shrugged them off and haven't looked back since. I think this has definitely inspired me to do a post of my own soon!

    1. I saw all the struggle it was when Kylie released her lipglosses and people received them with the applicator damaged and it was a dramaaaa... Her products seem to lack on quality now :(
      Yes do an anti-haul I would love to see it, make sure you tell me when you do!

  18. I also love Kimberly Clark, I think she did a mini revolution on YouTube with her Anti-Haul videos. I also agree with every product on this list, especially Subculture palette. It is actually nowhere as near in quality compared to MR. Every video I've watched was just so dramatic, with powder oxidizing, crumbling and flying everywhere. A total pass for me too! x

    1. I don't know why ABH didn't stick with the same formula of Modern Renaissance, that palette is bomb and I maybe would've bought the Subculture if the formula was the same and everything!
