Hello there, Beauties!! As much makeup as I get, even I have my limits. There are some brands that I just don’t see myself purchasing from for one reason or another, and that’s what we’re talking about today.
I love makeup. LOVE IT!! However, some brands I just can’t throw my coins to for one reason or another. Please note that I said PROBABLY in the title of this post, because you never know what’s gonna change. Also, if someone purchased items from these brands for me, with the exception of one, I would totally use them happily.
Now that we’ve cleared that up, let’s get into it!
Y’all, I don’t care how great the products are. I just can’t justify dropping over $100 on a Natasha Denona eyeshadow palette. I can’t and I won’t. My boyfriend would lose his mind if I told him I paid that much money on some eyeshadow lol. Plus, I’ve heard mixed reviews on her palettes, so there’s that.
Pat McGrath Labs is another brand that I don’t see myself purchasing from for the same reason I’m not buying from Natasha Denona. It’s just way too expensive. I WANT to try her products, especially because I would love to support the brand created by one of the biggest African-American female makeup artists in the universe, but I just can’t afford to spend that kind of money on stuff that’s eventually gonna turn before I can use it up.
I’m lumping Kylie Cosmetics and KKW Beauty together because, well, sisters. I don’t see myself ever purchasing from either of these brands because I find their products to be boring and overpriced. Plus, neither have a return policy, so since they’re eCommerce brands (aka have no physical stores), if I buy something I’m stuck with it. That’s not gonna work for me.
*sigh* Jeffree Star Cosmetics….Let me phrase this as best I can. For ME, I can’t see myself supporting JS because of not only his past actions, but some of the recent foolishness he’s participated in as well. He stays immersed in drama and controversy, and I just can’t support that. Plain and simple. This is the first and last time that his brand will be mentioned on my blog in any shape, form or fashion.
This one is pretty simple. I just find Violet Voss palettes pretty boring and uninspired. I feel like they just keep recycling the same palettes over and over and over, so I’ll keep my coins to myself until they release something interesting.
Alright, y’all. Let me know in the comments what brands you don’t see yourself purchasing from and why in the comments below.
Until next time, Beauties!! xoxo
