New month, new products that I can’t be bothered with. Yes, it’s the anti-wishlist March edition folks. These are five new launches from ColourPop, Kylie Cosmetics, Beauty Bakerie, Glossier & Farsali that I won’t be picking up anytime soon, based completely on personal preference.
Let’s dive into March now!
COLOURPOP X ZOELLA BRUNCH COLLECTION
A lot of bloggers have put their two cents in already on this newly launched collection from ColourPop, so here are my cents. Yawn, yawn, yawn. I’m sure the textures are lovely, but none of the colors are speaking to me and telling me to open my wallet. This is the problem with e-commerce brands; the customers can’t see the products IRL and touch and feel them before buying. We have to go off what we see on a screen, which can look very different from the way a product looks when it’s in front of you. ColourPop, get your ass back in Ulta so I can actually sample your products!
Rant over. This is a pretty hefty collection: an eye palette, 3 lip bundles, 3 ultra matte liquid lips, 2 cream shadows, 2 eyeliners, 1 powder highlighter, 1 powder blush, and 1 makeup bag. The theme is brunch (OK?) and it’s a Zoella collab (don’t care for her either way). No thanks, next.

KYLIE COSMETICS SETTING POWDERS
I’m including this here purely because I don’t ever use loose setting powders, and I don’t foresee Kylie Cosmetics changing my preferences on that anytime soon. This launch releases on March 7th in 6 different shades. Not sure about the price right now, but I’m sure they will be fairly affordable.
BEAUTY BAKERIE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING PALETTE
I’m really keen to try something from Beauty Bakerie one of these days, but I’m afraid this newly launched eyeshadow palette just isn’t it. I have these colors already in my collection, and let’s be honest, this just isn’t anything new or exciting. Pass.

GLOSSIER MILKY OIL WATERPROOF MAKEUP REMOVER
We’re not going to dive into Glossier Play in this post (I might tackle that in a separate post either later this week or next week), but this is the newest launch from Glossier proper. Supposedly it’s part micellar water, part lightweight oil to effectively remove all your (even stubborn) makeup. But at $12.00 (plus shipping) I prefer to keep using my Garnier micellar water that I can easily pick up from any drugstore for nearly half the price.

FARSALI ROSE GOLD SKIN MIST
I just don’t understand the whole face mist market. Am I missing something? Just seems like an extra step I don’t need for everyday makeup. Perhaps if my skin was oilier I would have more appreciation, I admit that. Anyways this new mist from Farsali, which launches on March 12th, is supposedly a 4-in-1 product that you can use to hydrate, prep, set & refresh your makeup throughout the day. It looks super cool with the gold flakes, and has beautiful packaging, but it’s a no from me. Unless someone can convert me to using face mists.
What’s on your anti-wishlist this month? I’d love to know!
