Holiday 2016 | Kat Von D

Last year I did a whole series about Holiday releases. This year, as you could probably tell by the anti-hauls, I'm not impressed with a lot of things. Kat Von D did get some money outta me this toss though.

Right away you know that ginormous palette could not be for me. As soon as we reach 200,000 views on this blog we'll open a pretty big giveaway 😉 Check out Jen's comprehensive review on the Metal Matte palette:


I already told you that I bought the Everlasting Mini Liquid Lipstick Set, even though I knew I wasn't interested in all the shades.

And if that wasn't enough I picked up a mini 'Bow N Arrow' to add to a lip swatch post. I thought a Tattoo Liner was included but it's the Ink Liner version which I already have.

Long answer...

The beauty industry is really ovadoing it with the releases cause they realise consumers are just lapping it up. We really need to take stock of what we have and be more mindful of what we're purchasing.
