I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.

Josie Maran Black Oil Mascara

Re: Empties

I just threw out my Josie Maran Black Oil mascara after only 2 uses - it was so dry and flakey (and it was too late to do a return) - such a disappointing product!

Re: Empties

It flaked all over my cheeks. I couldn't believe how terrible it was. I had high hopes too because they market it as conditioning mascara.

Re: Empties

I'm so glad you said this - I've been looking pretty seriously at this product for after I finish my current mascara!  Now I think I will probably skip it.  

Re: Empties

My empties from the last few months! I've been accumulating for a while and my bag started to overflow so I figured this was the perfect time to share.


Face/body/hair care:





Re: Empties

Nice job! Anything in particular that you loved?

Thank you! Smiley Happy I'd have to say some of my favorites are the Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara, Dr. Jart Dermaclear Micro Water, Clinique Even Better Makeup and the Bite lipstick. Most of what's pictured here has been repurchased!

Wow! You finished a lot for June. I'm impressed!

Re: Empties



Top Shelf Tried and True:


Garnier micellar water.. the most effective makeup remover I have tried. I have repurchased this.

It's a 10 miracle leave in plus keratin...I have bought many bottles of this and it makes my cranky hair behave.

No. 7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced serum.... A truly effective fragrance free serum that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I will be repurchasing.

Benefit Roller Lash mascara...One of my favorite no budge, no smudge lengthening mascaras. Always in my collection.




Pacifica eye shadow trio... This bugger really made my eyes water so it will not be emptied by me, passing it on to a friend.


Stinky, Rotten and Soon to be forgotten:


Matrix Biolage dry shampoo...The floral smell was nausea inducing for me, and the product did not absorb the oil at all...fail!

Batiste dry shampoo sweet and seductive...This smells like Aquolina Pink Sugar perfume, and made my hair reek of the scent for two long days. I will not finish the product.

Garnier Whole Blends 5 in 1 lightweight spray...This was a fail, it made my hair frizzy and unmanageable...in addition to that, it smells like rotting green apples. If you like attracting flies then this is the spray for you lol! I'm not finishing this one either.





Re: Empties

I hate batiste... I wish I liked it, because I have oily hair and sounds like a very good idea. 

Re: Empties

My "mini" May empties

Re: Empties

I love the Nivea in shower body lotion too! Received a sample in an Amazon beauty box and had to order two full size bottles! It's funny...I don't like the scent when I'm in the shower but my skin feels so silky smooth and hydrated when I dry off and love the scent when I'm dry. Lol

Re: Empties

i like it for mornings when i'm in a rush...but i like it even more that it makes my 12 year old actually put something hydrating on his skin!!

Re: Empties

This thread has REALLY made me start going through all of the beauty products I've been hoarding.  It feels so good to finish something!  Here are my empties for the month of May.




Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer:  Love this stuff.  I love the way it makes my skin feel so silky after applying it.
Derma e Microdermabrasion Scrub:  This made my skin look and feel amazing!
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat:  I always come back to this stuff.  It dries so quick and so shiny!
Davines Ol Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion:  I got this as a sample in a Birchbox and fell in love.  It makes my hair super smooth and smells amazing!  I bought a full size bottle of it already!
Whish Shave Cream:  This smelled so amazing (blueberry scent) and left my skin so soft!
Oscar Blandi At Home Salon Glaze:  This made my hair feel very silky (which usually isn't the case!)
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick - Patina:  The color looks good on just about anyone!  I got this sample size in a pack of 6 around the holidays and my friend bought me a full size for my bday (it's her favorite too).
GlamGlow Super Mud:  I just loved the way my skin looked after using this. 
e.l.f. High Definition Powder:  I use this stuff every day.  And it's so cheap!
BBW body lotion - Cool Amazon Rain:  I really like BBW lotion and this scent was nice.
Real Chemistry 3 Minute Peel Body:  I used this on my arms (it would take so long to do your entire body!) and I really noticed a difference!



Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser:  It smelled nice, but I don't know if it really exfoliated.
Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield:  I liked it and I liked that it had SPF, but I don't know if I LOVED it.
Stila Foundation (don't remember which one now...it came with an Ulta GWP) - I don't really remember much about this other than it was a decent foundation
Hempz Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Body Wash:  smelled yummy, average body wash to me.
Sonia Kashuk Pink Innocencia Body Polish - I actually got this on clearance a while ago and just recently used it.  It smelled nice, but I've used better body scrubs.
Benefit Porefessional:  Liked it, but I like other primers better.
Alterna Caviar shampoo and conditioner:  I liked this better than I thought I would.  I have very dry hair and this conditioner seemed to help with that.
Caudalie Devine Oil - I used this on my body (you can use it on your face and hair too) and liked how it absorbed quickly.
Tocca Body Scrub - Giulietta - I loved how this smelled and it was a decent body scrub.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo:  Not my favorite dry shampoo, but certainly not my least favorite either!
Vasanti Brighten Up Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator:  Leaves my skin feeling nice. 




Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer:  I'm 30 and am starting to get fine lines on my face that I would like to start correcting now rather than later.  This smelled nice and didn't irritate my skin, but I don't think it really did anything for the fine lines!
MTJ High Definition Mascara - Meh.  Didn't really do much.
Cargo Texaslash Mascara - Name is misleading.  It really didn't add volume to my eyelashes!

Re: Empties


Already repurchased or plan on it:

First Aid Beauty Hydrating Serum: Purchased the full size. Plums & hydrates my skin without breaking me out, only downside is it can get tacky if I apply too much.

Acure Organics Marula Oil: This has surpassed Argan oil for me. It hydrates my skin and helps calm my rosacea. I’m using a DS sample of the Drunk Elephant and honestly cannot tell the difference.

Cerave Moisturizing Cream: Simple body cream that I always go back to when my skin is acting up.


Meh, if I get a sample but don’t feel the need to purchase:

Boscia Purfying Gel: I’ve had deluxe size but never been motivated to purchase it. It’s a decent cleanser that doesn’t strip my skin but nothing mind blowing. 

Batiste Dry Shampoo Wild Scent: Batiste used to my HG dry shampoo but I’ve notice the last couple of months it hasn’t worked as well. I don’t know if they’ve changed the formula or my scalp has just changed. I’m using up a backup but after that I need to try something new.

Dolce & Gabbanna Pour Femme


No. No, thank you:

Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence: I really want to add a skincare item with fermented ingredients since I keep hearing so many good things about it. However, this didn’t do much for my skin.

Infusion Rapid Repair Treatment: Alright, but I think this is discontinued. It did weigh down my hair if I used too much of it.

Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Lotion: I’ve got the perfume but I’ve never liked the lotions that come with perfumes. They usually are super greasy and cause my skin to break out.
