So it hasn’t been that long since my first Saving & Craving but you know, the makeup industry is coming out with 50 collections every day and I have to catch up. Here are my recent Saving and Craving products!
Anything by Colourpop $$$
I have to be honest for a second. I’m getting tired of Colourpop. They’re releasing something every other day, if not every day and I’m not a fan. It’s too much. A lot of their new collections feel like a money grab to me because a lot of it isn’t new. There are already existing products in the collections. You’re paying for the new packaging and I’m not down with that. Saving my money. Also, there’s nothing new and exciting and ‘wow, I have never seen this before’. I already have most shades in my collection and I need to start using those, instead of buying new things.
Melt Cosmetics Radioactive eyeshadow palette $48
Look, it’s beautiful and I love the shades. However, sometimes I just need to be cutthroat and admit that something beautiful is not always worth buying. It’s a tad too expensive and I already have a bunch of these shades in my collection. It’s beautiful but I cannot convince myself to buy it.
Urban Decay Naked Honey Palette
Uhm. I don’t know where to start. I didn’t realise Urban Decay could get any more boring. This is a boring palette. I don’t like it. I already have these shades in my collection but with more depth and saturation and less ashiness. Saving the money!
Too Faced Palm Springs Dreams $45
Boring the house. Can you imagine spending $45 on this palette? Man, Too Faced hasn’t interested me in a hot minute. These neutral shades with a pop of blue already exist in your collection and if they don’t, don’t spend $45 on this and search something similar and cheaper. You will find it. I promise.
Sugarpill Fun Size Palette $29
This is such a cute palette and I love Sugarpill eyeshadows. It’s a little steep for what you get so I’m not sure if I want this. ‘Update: it’s €25,49 and not €30 or something as I had thought. Will buy.’ However, there are some, if not all of them, unique shades in this palette that I don’t have in my collection. I will have to see if this comes to Beauty Bay or Boozyshop!
Sol Body Glow Oils $15
So in my last Saving or Craving, I mentioned that I was really craving the Sol Body Shimmering Dry Oil. However, when I was just on the verge of purchasing it, I saw the announcement that they were releasing the Glow Oils. No glitter, pure shimmer. I think I gravitate more towards this type of product for the body. And the price is lovely of course!
Fenty Beauty Pro Filtr Hydrating Foundation
I really want to try this. It has been getting mixed reviews, some good and some bad. But the aesthetic and the claims of the foundation sound so good. I currently have three foundations that are almost empty, so I think I might purchase this one after the emptying, haha.
So that guys are some of my saving and cravings of the latest launches. Has anyone noticed how many collections are launching? I honestly can’t keep up. Especially with the holiday season coming up. I’m actually thinking about doing another saving and craving for holiday collections. What do you think?
What are some of your saving and cravings lately?
Lots of love and see you next time!
