For all the exciting new launches at Meccland, there were others that bored me. Here are the items I’m not going to buy once launched online and in stores at Mecca Maxima!
Too Faced Life’s a Festival collection
The unicorn trend is so early-2017 and is starting to feel very childish. I love a bit of cutesy packaging from time to time, but this collection crosses a line. It’s a no from me. And the same goes for the Tarte mermaid collection launching at Sephora Australia soon. Can we jump off the mythical-creature-inspired makeup bandwagon? Please?
Urban Decay Naked Heat Petite palette
Another warm-toned palette, but in mini size. I wasn’t drawn to the original Naked Heat, and the small matte version (with one shimmer) is even less impressive in my opinion. Can we please move on from this overdone trend, and leave it behind with the mermaids and unicorns already?
Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Collection
I want to get behind this range, especially because it involves makeup artist Vlada and her amazing drip lip artwork. However, I have enough glowy makeup items, so I don’t need anything more. I’m not a fan of shimmer drops or metallic lips, and the eyeshadow palette looks incredibly basic. The only things that remotely peeks my interest are the highlighters, and if I’m honest, it’s because of the packaging. Sorry Smashbox, I just can’t justify the spend!
What do you think of these product? Do you think I should reconsider any of them?
