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. Here’s my additional comments¹.
It’s prime “Summer Collection” time so I have a lot of new things to discuss. Too many new things to discuss!
On a budget? e.l.f. (Eyes Lips Face) has many great gift sets under $30 for the 2010 holidays. Plus, you can update your nail color wardrobe with 5 new nails colors. The e.l.f. Holiday 2010 Collection contains the following:
Palettes & Gift Sets: There the 100 Piece Eyeshadow Palette that retails for $10. That’s right 100 eye shadows! There’s also the 32 Piece Eyeshadow Palette that retails for $5. There’s two 6 Piece Eyeshadow Palettes

We have the White Tiger Face Powder Compact. It is a light slightly shimmery face powder enriched with Monoi. I love monoi. The powder has a lovely white tiger on it and is in a beautiful gold mirrored case. It retails for $85. For those of us that want some “color” in the dead of winter, we have the Bengali Bronzer
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
