Anti-haul threa

[ Edited ]

I saw the best youtube video...on anti-hauls. Basically, it's things you are not going to buy (no way, not ever, absolutely) and why. So here are my anti-hauls for holiday 2016 updated:

 

1.  The KVD/TooFaced collaboration.  People are already listing it below.  I don't get it and to me it just looks tacky.  Two brands that apparently aren't better together.

 

2.  Pat McGrath lips sets.  I do not need glitter on my lips and the shades don't look unique or distinctive.

 

3.  The new Tarte deluxe blush palette (the $65 one).   I need to stop with these deluxe size holiday offerings.  I can't seem to hit pan on one blush, let alone 9 (I think it has nine).

 

4.  Things off Beauty dot com just because they're discounted.  I do not need makeup, even super cheap makeup.  I might want it, but I don't need it.

 

5.  Sorry on this one, but after buying a bunch of UD palettes at full price, to see them all get discounted deeply, I will not be buying more full priced UD palettes.

 

6.  If the Sephora Give Me More Lips has lip liners, I will not be buying it.

 

 

Videos one and two are on the last or almost last page of comments to this thread.  The others are littered in.  Kimberly Clark (youtube name so not putting in names not allowed on BT) made them.  Video 2 I'll link now:

Re: Anti-haul threa

Same, I was so hyped to watch it and it really killed me that it is gone. Hopefully it is re-uploaded soon, because I have been with KC since Anti-Haul #1 and I live for these videos.

Re: Anti-haul threa

Oh no! I wonder why it was taken down. Smiley Sad Hopefully it's back soon.

Re: Anti-haul threa

She reposted it after modifying the original version.  She posts copy stating that she felt it was unfair to critique Chrissy Tiegen the way she did.  @Asche @killersandliars

Re: Anti-haul threa

I saw it today, I think KC did right by accepting fault and taking that portion of the video out. 

Re: Anti-haul threa

Well now I'm curious about what she said about Chrissy Tiegen!

Re: Anti-haul threa

@mwg1 From what I remember, KC's impression was that Chrissy was a sexualized Sports Illustrated model, and she was annoyed that Becca didn't choose to collab with someone more empowering to women (like a female scientist). I think that was the gist of it, although KC's critique of Chrissy was a bit harsher than the way I've worded it. Smiley Tongue

Re: Anti-haul threa

I have Chrissy palette and love it.  I can understand where she's coming from.  This is one of beauty pet sleeve i have for all cosmetics companies in general.  For safe bet, they are willing to pay $$$ to pay models/actors/influensters instead of featuring real working women.  I mean look at our board, i think many BTs here are as fabulous/beautiful (if not more) than the real models.

Re: Anti-haul threa

Thank you @Asche Heart BRB!!

Re: Anti-haul threa

Enjoy @ZombieMetroAnt!! Smiley Very Happy I'd be interested to hear your thoughts!

Re: Anti-haul threa

@Asche Thanks for posting!

Love this one.  Cringed a little regarding her wearing so much makeup she doesn't worry about her skin.  Ouch!  I'm such a skin care fanatic.

But, as always, so great.

Re: Anti-haul threa

I know what you mean @meganlisa! It was hard not to cringe a little. I don't find skincare particularly "fun", but it is completely necessary imo. I care a lot about my skin.

 

I was surprised to see the YSL primer! I love that primer! Smiley Very Happy I was also surprised the UD Naked Heat palette/collection wasn't mentioned at all.

Re: Anti-haul threa

@Asche I love these videos.  But I also sometimes feel like they have a price point bias.  I love the YSL primer too!  Sad to see it on an anti-haul video without KC at least trying it....

A number of videos ago she called a Chanel highlighter glittery.  It is so not (and a personal favorite).  Part of her issue there was price point too.  I think we just need to accept that - if we love a pricey product - it might get on the anti-haul list.

I resisted Heat.  After spending tons of UD a number of times...only to watch the price point drop dramatically soon thereafter, I'm slower to the trigger with the brand.  

Fun video though!  Thanks for posting!!!!

Re: Anti-haul threa

I completely agree with you @meganlisa. I suppose this is the consequence of products being judged without being tried first. Since that is the essence of an anti-haul, I guess there is no way around it.

I think what I love and appreciate most about anti-haul videos is that they oppose the hype and pressure to buy all the latest releases. They've helped change my thinking from "it's new, I gotta have it!" to "will this suit me? Will I use it?". As long as I can say "yes" to those questions, I don't mind still buying/splurging on things. Smiley Happy

Re: Anti-haul threa

@Asche They have changed my thinking too.  I don't just jump.  I still jump, don't get me wrong...

But now I think I'm liking what I get better, because I really think about it.  Which has to be a good thing...

Another cringey comment was the "you can use any product for an eyeshadow or blush" --- NO!!!! You can't. Some blushes aren't safe for the eye area.

Re: Anti-haul threa

@purly So true!  It's not a risk I want to take!!!

I've gotten eye infections from makeup.  Not something I want to repeat.

Re: Anti-haul threa

I loved the Bum Bum cream part...two videos in one day, such a treat!

I'm so bad at antihauls. This made me want that La Mer brush really badly! After another anti-haul I bought the NARS blush palette - which I love and don't regret at all. I'm programmed wrong. 

Re: Anti-haul threa

As KC said, get the IT Cosmetics powder brush!! Ugh it's so good. I definitely own some decent cheap powder brushes, but I will never reach for them over my IT cosmetics brush

Re: Anti-haul threa

@starsandbucks I have the La Mer powder brush and I don't reach for it. It's definitely not a must have if that helpsSmiley Happy

Re: Anti-haul threa

@Babypeachist That is helpful, thank you! I've never been able to talk myself into the Marc Jacobs bronzer brushes so I probably wouldn't be able to talk myself into this but any negative reinforcement is very much appreciated!
