There have been so many makeup releases since Black Friday that I can hardly keep up!! Seriously… and being perpetually broke paying for adult expenses (car maintenance, bills, etc.) I’ve been passing up all of the great deals and amazing new releases. I haven’t purchased eyeshadow in a while because to be honest I need more eyeshadow like I need a hole in my head (meaning I don’t need more eyeshadow), but there are a few I’ve been drooling over, and honestly online window shopping has saved me from spending a sh*t ton of money I don’t have to be spending. So here are the items I’ve been eyeing, that I totally don’t need.
E.l.f. Mad for Matte 2 Palette – $10.00
Ok this one I’m really excited for. I’ve heard great things about the first Mad for Matte palette, but I already own a lot of the colors in the first version of the palette. This one, however, looks like they are all PERFECT transition shades for any eye look you’re trying to create.. and I really want it! I went to the e.l.f. store in the mall today, and they don’t have it (it’s an online exclusive), and the lady also said they were all sold out of the first one. So there’s that. Out of all of the palettes in this post, I think this one is the only I’d buy right now since it is very budget friendly.
Colourpop Love Line Quad – $18.00
This quad is everything!! It is the rusty rose gold, and dusty mauve mix of shades of dreams and I love all of the colors in this collection. I don’t need these colors because I have a lot of colors like these (I own single Colourpop shadows and the Carli Bybel palette which have colors like the ones in this quad), HOWEVER, they are slightly different than the ones I own, and as a makeup addict I really want them. I don’t think I’ll be buying these anytime soon, but I will admire them from afar… away from my debit card.
Colourpop All Nighter Quad – $18.00
This quad came out the same day as the Love Line quad, and this one is pretty unique in it’s collection of shades. Colourpop doesn’t have another quad with similar shades in it, and I find this quad super functional for everyday natural or neutral eye looks. One I’d probably purchase this quad before I purchased Love Line, but again I will be staying far away from the Colourpop checkout. *Sigh*
Morphe 35F Fall into Frost Palette – $22.99
Morphe’s beautiful 35F palette… UGH this palette is just amazing. I listed this palette on my fall wishlist post back in September (Fall Makeup Wishlist) – I’ve been eyeing it for a long time. What I love about this palette is the versatility – it’s obviously great for fall and winter color eye looks, but the lighter shades and matte shades can be used for day-to-day looks during the spring and summer. Also, the darker colors can be used to create glam night looks, or the lighter colors for simple natural looks when you’re not feeling up for bold eye makeup. Most of the colors are foiled/frosted, and great for bring some shimmery sunshine to the winter season. This palette is affordable, but for my budget right now I will continue to dote on this palette from behind the screen of my laptop.
These are my top wishes for eyeshadows and like I mentioned, I really don’t need to buy any more eyeshadow (especially when I’m broke), but it’s fun to create wishlists/beauty bucket lists or whatever you want to call your makeup addiction.
A girl can dream ok?
Let me know what makeup releases you’ve purchased or are looking forward to getting for the holidays! ❤
Until next time, Happy Holidays!
