I try to be really practical about my beauty purchases, especially for high end products (though I do fail at times). As a result, I try not to buy things I know I won't use enough to justify or that I have a good drugstore alternate already. These are some things that while I've heard a lot about in the blogosphere, I probably won't be buying anytime soon.
I hear a lot of praise for the FAB Facial Radiance Pads for being a great chemical exfoliator. However, I have no plans to buy the full size since I'm content with the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix pads which are a hella lot cheaper and similar enough.
YSL Touche Eclat is undoubtedly THE highlighting concealer to make highlighting concealers popular. However, it is insanely expensive ($50!"!") and definitely a splurge item. I'm really content with the Rimmel Match Perfection concealer that I see absolutely no need to go out and buy it.
While the Clarisonic sounds nice I don't think I could justify the cost considering how I only use the Olay one I have twice a week. And it's working great for me so far so I don't see the need to splash out on one. The Foreo on the other hand looks more interesting...
This is somewhat controversial, but I doubt I'll be getting the Anastasia Brow Wiz anytime soon. Why splash out $20 for a brow product when I'm already happy with The Face Shop's brow pencil which is only $4" It's such a good colour match on me and well loved that I have three backups waiting in the wings to be used up. And even when I use all of them up, I'm probably going to stick to Asian brands since they match my natural brow colour so well and cost less money.
This is probably a bit of a shocker, but I was never that into the Urban Decay Naked palettes due to how shimmery the eyeshadows were, despite how buttery they are. However, then the Naked Basics 2 palette was released.. let's just say that it changed my mind on owning a Naked palette, though I don't have any plans to buy anymore Naked p...
