I forever bombard you with new products, purchases and recommendations but seldom ever mention what I have no plans to make my own for whatever reason that may be. With anti-hauls being all the rage within the beauty community, I thought I'd take the chance to show you what I won't be buying and why...

1, Too Faced Love Lights Prismatic Highlighter in You Light Up My Life - some shades simply aren't made for my skin-tone and that is exactly the problem (if you can call it that), I have with this product. The bright, true gold, hue of Too Faced You Light Up My Life translates a little orange-y and looks bizarre, rather than flattering against my light, olive complexion - however if you have a deep skin-tone this will look nothing short of dazzling and may be the highlighter you have been waiting for. I will say the formulation is wonderful and I may treat myself to one of the other two options but this particular shade will not be joining my stash.

2, Anything rainbow or unicorn themed - I am over it, it was fun while it lasted but along with mermaid packaged products there is only so much a gal can take.

3, MAC Fix+ Fruity Juicy - I must firstly say that I utterly adore the MAC Fruity Juicy Collection on the whole and do recommend checking it out; the only reason I am personally skipping the limited edition Fix + is that I never use my original bottle, and I highly doubt adding the scent of coconut will change that. I have to accept that some products simply aren't for me and that is okay!

4, Kat Von D Shade and Glimmer Palette - Obviously this has yet to be released and as such I have used the original palette in its place for illustrative purposes but what I have seen of the Kat Von D Shade and Glimmer Palette hasn't blown me away. I like shimmer based eyeshadows but don't love them and owning a palette without any matte options perhaps isn't the best choice for me - what I will say is that the shade range is very pretty and offers a lot of variety but I doubt it will sneak onto my wishlist.

5, Byredo Gypsy Water Hair Perfume - I mean do I really need a separate bottle of fragrance just for my hair? In a word no.

6, Anastasia Nicole Glow Palette - I love Anastasia Beverly Hills products and I have a lot of time for anything Nicole Guerriero does or launches, and yet I don't own the Nicole Glow palette. This is not because I don't like the shade range but because there is no Anastasia counter in Scotland, as such I can't swatch the shades and decide if I will get enough use out of the palette to warrant calling it my own. Could this change when I hit New York in a couple of weeks? Definitely but until I get to try this out in person, I won't be handing over my bank card any time soon.

7, Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows - I must firstly say that I truly do love the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows, there is nothing quite like them but I am fooling myself if I think I can make the deeper shades work. I lack the skill and what looks great on YouTube doesn't quite correlate all that well into everyday life - for that reason alone, I will be sticking to the lighter shades of the wonderful Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows.

8, Tom Ford Orchid Soleil Eau de Parfum - Just like not every make-up shade, or product is suited to one person, we can't all wear the same fragrance and I'm calling it quits with Tom Ford Orchid Soleil. Yes this is a gorgeous sun-drenched, floral scent, that couldn't be more perfect for the summer if it tried but it seemingly sits well on everyone but me. Hey you can't win the all.

9, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzers - Hourglass are one of my favourite beauty brands and therein lies the problem, I am so loyal to their powders that I don't often purchase much else in the form of bronzers and blushes, which really isn't all that helpful when your job is to write about beauty products. As such I am going to step away from the newly launched shades of the Hourglass bronzers...for now at least.

10, Charlotte Tilbury Beach Sticks - We are now edging into Summer and each year I dabble with cream formulations, only to become annoyed that they don't stay in place for as long as I would like. A combination of heat, sweat and oily skin does horrific things to make-up so for the sake of my wallet and sanity, I will not be persuaded to give up my powder blushes for a Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick - even if they are the best around.

Feel free to tell what you won't be purchasing any time soon and why!
