Empties

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.

    Erborian Crème Scrub Beautifying Exfoliating Pearls - It was okay. Non-irritating and smooth. Nothing life-changing though. 

 

Hates:

    Clinique Super Antioxidant Night Moisturizer - this stuff sucks. Despite being marketed as lightweight, it is extremely thick. It also NEVER sinks into your skin so you look like a greased bowling ball for eternity. I just used it up cuz it was expensive. Never again.

I love AOBS.  That's the product that first got me into skincare in my early 20s.  It never fails to make my skin feel smooth like a baby's butt.

Re: Empties

Empties time!  Mine are really paltry.  It seems to take me forever to use anything up.  Only one clunker this month, so that's something.

The Dr Jart mask was in my loves too!

Re: Empties

I love those Burts bees candles too 😊

Re: Empties

I was shocked to find them so cheap at Wal-Mart.  $5 for a highly scented, soy wax candle.  I need to go get some more.

Re: Empties

^^I have the same sentiments! I love the pink one. They smells so delicious! 

Re: Empties

I broke my own personal record this month with my empties - couldn't even fit them all on the counter at once for one big photo!

The biggest accomplishment would have to be that KVD concealer - I've had it since May 2012 Smiley Surprised

Way too much to list here!

Re: Empties

I have been on a mission to use up things and yesterday I purged all my foils, ds, and random gwp items I'll never use. I gave the items I won't use to my friends daughter and she was so happy so win win. I had many loves this month!

Loves. Already staple items or have repurchased.

  • Glamglow Gravity Mud - HATE the smell and it didn't do anything for me anyways
  • Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Cleansing oil/gel - Again, can't take the smell but it did remove makeup very well
  • OH Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask - too harsh for my sensitive skin
  • Lancome Visionnaire Nuit - decent but nothing to write home about
  • Dior Hydra Life Jelly Sleeping Mask - I liked this and would definitely want to get a couple more foils
  • MAC Prep & Prime skin - decent and since it's such a good size for a free sample I always get it when Nordstrom has it (if I'm placing an order anyways)
  • Loreal Advanced Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight products - these are quite good actually but I still love my Living Proof PHD more

Re: Empties

I'm so impressed you used up a whole lip balm!  I do love that Farmacy balm- I use mostly the apple rosemary one and sometimes the lavender mint.

Re: Empties

I apply it every night at bedtime so that helps to finish it.  This was my first Farmacy one and now I'm using the Strawberry Basil which I also really like.  I want to try all of them.

Re: Empties

Rose jam is the JAM! Great empties gulz.

Yeah it's the BEST!!  Thanks dalidyli ")

Re: Empties

Okay, so remember when I said I didn't like the Shiseido cottons and I said I'd never buy them again cause I kept ripping them apart trying to get one from the stack?   They've grown on me after trying to go back to regular drugstore ones.  😏. 

 

The MAC prep and prime is just generic primer to me.  It doesn't do anything good or bad for me.  They're slowly building up in my collection cause I seem to prefer primer samples over mascara samples when I order lipsticks.  

Re: Empties

I've found the Sephora brand ones to be a nice substitute if you don't like the sticky-togetherness of the Shiseido.  I have the same issue with Shiseido.  They are nice and soft, but I'm still not 100% convinced.  The Sephora ones are nicely finished at the edges and whatnot, and they don't stick together.

Oh thanks, I'll check them out.

Re: Empties

@heartsmyface I had a similar realization. I was being cheap and didnt want to pay $11 anymore but one pack of the Rexall ones and I had to go back lol

Re: Empties

@heartsmyface Yes I do remember that.  I cannot use the drugstore ones at all.  They're so terrible.

 

It's not a great primer by any means but since it does ok I keep getting it.  I am always looking for DS/foils of non illuminating primers that don't leave a white cast on my skin.

Re: Empties

I just checked through my stash.  The only priner I have that meets your criteria is the Too Cool For School oil control primer.  It's very mattifying.  The only reason I own it is so that I can do other people's makeup.  I love shiny skin.
