Empties August 2017

Hey Everyone,

It has been such a long time since I made an empties post. Sadly I don’t have much to show but I am not worried as any progress on my collection is good!

Products I would Repurchase:
I have finally finished my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and I am a little sad! If I am in need of another brow pencil I would not think twice about getting this. The Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser is something I have used multiple times and go back to it when I am not sure what I want.

Would not Repurchase:
I was not in love with either of the Essence Mascaras, I found they did not last on my lashes. Lovestruck is a great perfume, its just not a scent that I like to wear anymore. Plus I have so many other perfumes to work through.

Would Repurchase if I had the $$$$:
I have loved Estee Lauder skin care for a long time and it pains me to be without these two products. My skin changes so much when I stop using them so I cannot wait for the next gift with purchase where I can hopefully get more samples. I enjoyed using the Dior Capture Totale but unless I had some gift cards I can not justify this moisturiser.

What do you think of this style of empties post? Let me know!

Empties #1!

Hey Guys!

I don’t even remember the last time I did one of these, and my box was in need of a clean out so here we go! Be prepared there is a lot, but I have taken photos in a more bulk style so that way this post shouldn’t be super long.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser is the cleanser I have been using in the shower for ages, I honestly haven’t used all of this up but I seriously just wanted to try something else. There is nothing wrong with this product and I did like it. As you can see I did get it on sale, I would probably get it again if it was on sale.

LUSH Rose Jam, I think I got this for Christmas and had a jolly old time using this up! I like how this smelted, but I generally don’t use LUSH products anymore. If I did get this again though I would still use and love it!

Body Shop Body Scrub, I got this while it was on sale because I love using body scrubs in the shower (Annoying Legs and Shaving I explain why in this post) I enjoyed the smell of this and how soft it left my skin afterwards. I was a little worried though the first few times I used this as it did change the colour of my skin while I was scrubbing. Thankfully it didn’t stain me, but it is something to keep in mind.

Anatomical The Buff Stuff Citrus Body Scrub, is an inexpensive body scrub which I love to use in the shower because you don’t need a lot of it and it’s in a squeezy bottle! I love to take this travelling because you can, in a pinch, use this as your soap for the day and still come out smelling amazing! This isn’t a super abrasive scrub and I really need to go get some more!

Estee Lauder Day Wear Moisturiser is my daily moisturiser that I have been using for years. I am honestly always nervous to move away from this as I know my skin loves this and never acts up from it. It does have a strong smell if you aren’t used to it. I will always re-purchase this because it’s a staple in my life.

Glam Glow Mud Mask I really enjoyed using this and I do want to pick it up again. I remembered it did have a strong-ish smell but it didn’t really bother me. There were also bits of sea weed? I’m not sure but it wasn’t something I was expecting to see them. I really liked this though! The price point does make it hard to justify re-purchasing though.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eyes, these aren’t full sizes, in fact I have never had to pay for this product and I have used it for years. These are deluxe samples you get when you pay for the gifts with purchases. I enjoy using this and I do think that it does help. But then, like I said I’ve been using it for so long I don’t really notice anymore haha.

M.A.C. Gently Off Eye Makeup Remover is something I use everything to help take off my liquid lipsticks and eyeshadow and mascara. I know there are cheaper alternatives out there but this is a product that I really enjoy using because it works super quick and easy. I also like getting this because MAC do have a recycling program, so I know that these wont contribute to landfill.

M.A.C. Brush Cleanser I use this to spot clean my brushes after doing my makeup! I really like using this as its quick and simply and doesn’t leave an oder on my brushes.

Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner I think this would have to be my favourite toner that I have so far tried, its easy to use and it doesn’t burn my skin or affect it in anyway which I’m thankful for. This is a product that is easy to get and also goes on sale often!

Estee Lauder Mirco Essence I don’t really remember what using this was like, but I do remember that I did enjoy using this! I got this sample either with gift with purchase or it was just gifted to me to try. I know that I would not spend the money on it though as I have other products that I enjoy using.

Loreal Infallible 24H-Matte is a product that I have a huge place in my heart for, I wrote this review on this product and I do love it. I have found now though that this shade is too dark for me. Sadly as well this is the lightest shade that I can get here in Australia. So I will have to wait and see if I tan up before I can wear this again. Either way though, an amazing foundation and worth the money! (I would always wait for a sale though).

Loreal Infallible Mattifying Base is the primer that I use every day! This took sooo long to use up which too me is a great sign for a product. I really like how this product feels on my skin and so I continue to use it and love it! I am now on my second tube and loving it!

Makeup For Ever Mist & Fix is my hands down favourite setting spray. I am so sad that I have ran out of this and that it is so hard to get in Australia! I do have others that I like but this is still my favourite. Hopefully Sephora will get their online stock in order so that I can get my hands on it again!

Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray is the setting spray I tried before the Mist & Fix and I really enjoyed using this! It is an amazing setting spray that works super well! I am glad that you can get this in a smaller size so that you can try it, travel with it and not commit to the giant size.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara I used to LOVE this mascara… in the sample size. I do still like using this mascara, but I much prefer using it in the sample size because there is less product in the tube. As I said I did like this mascara but I found that unless I spent the time to wipe off all the extra product every time then it would gunk on my lashes. So overall I do like this mascara, just not in the full size.

M.A.C. Lipstick in Ruby Woo I think is the first MAC lipstick that I ever bought. I kind of regret buying this because it is so DRYING. I have not picked up this lipstick for years, so my plan is the back-to-mac this and get something else. If you figured out how to make this work congratulations! But I have simply moved on to more user friendly red lipsticks.

Maybelline New York Baby Lips is a product that I am so proud of myself for using up! How often does someone go through a lip product? Even more so when it’s a lipbalm, something we always lose before we finish it. This isn’t my favourite Baby Lips flavour, but I do still like it a lot, I am pretty sure I have a backup so I will simply start working through that next!

Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara is my favourite mascara at the moment and I am sad that I ran out of it. I find that this gives me amazing volume and length. I know that some people don’t like this mascara and that is fair enough. But this is my favourite and I can’t wait to work through some of my other mascaras so I can get back to using this!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper is a product that I used on and off and I found that I would always come back to it because it is an amazing liner. It is easy to use and lasts all day without an issue. I always reach for this if I don’t know hat liner I want to use for that day. It’s super black and I have never had this transfer, it can even be a little difficult to take off bur I don’t mind this as it just goes to show how well it can last on your eyes. The only thing that could be considered a downer would be that it can be hard to make a really thin line. As you can also see from this photo the silver writing doesn’t last too well if you’re using it daily. This didn’t bother me but after a while it doesn’t look as pretty as when you first bought it. Other then that, this is hands down my favourite liner.

NARS Radient Creamy Concealer in Vanilla is something I have gone through many times  and is a product that I do love using. I do find that that this still creases on me. I have yet to find a concealer that doesn’t crease, but the coverage it gives me is what I’m mainly chasing. I have really dark under eyes and this does a great job of covering them up without looking silly. Though with the price of NARS products going up at Mecca, I think I might have to try and find something else to use. Either way though, this is a great concealer and this will always have a place in my heart.

 

Wow! I am sorry just such a long post! But as you can see it was a little over due, hopefully I won’t leave it so long before the next one. Let me know if there is anything you would like me to review in the future.
