Anti-Haul July 2017

A lot of people do “Anti-Hauls” on Youtube. If you aren’t familiar with these, these are videos where people talk about what they aren’t buying. With so many launches, I love the premise of this. It gives us a reason to talk about what’s new without actually participating in this makeup economy of “BUT THIS LIMITED EDITION THING!”. Here’s my version, sans video.

Weekly Cheap Secret:

Milani cosmetics are pretty high quality, especially with its drugstore price tag. I really like their lip products. They usually pack a pigment punch.

Yves Saint Laurent YSL Holiday Bow Color Collection Review

Yves Saint Laurent Holiday Bow Color Collection is all about “wrapping” up 2008. There are some nice holiday items and the rest are well, relaunches. The colors aren’t horrible but they are predictable. I really liked the fall makeup collection better. It seemed “newer”. This collection offers us the following:

LIPS: Fard À Lèvres Rouge Pur Pure Lipstick in Honey Beige which is a warm peachy beige. This shade really works with dark eye makeup. We have Golden Gloss Shimmering Lip Gloss in Golden Burgundy. This is one of my fave holiday shades. It… Continue reading
