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.

LOL I would feel awful to ask that of an SA. I might try and see if I can save some money to treat myself to a special edition later next year I think. as long as I keep it in one of the metal atomizers to use and not break it!!!

Re: Empties

I owe you some hearts, so I am hearting the good (not the poor broken bottle).  So sorry that happened.  Such a bummer.

Re: Empties

Yeah. I regret not going for the point redemption now for the little mini and hatbox a few weeks ago. Poor move on my part thinking to be greedy hoarding my points.

Re: Empties

It is not my scent at all, but I thought the hatbox thing was cute.  Check your pm and let me know ASAP, because I want to go in the morning.

Re: Empties

You're the best, I'll get with you on seeing if there is anything I have in my stash to exchange. Smiley Happy I can't get over catalogs or envelopes!

Re: Empties

That is tragic.

It would not hurt taking your sob story to a friendly Sephora employee or mod and maybe they could replace it for you..

It's worth a try.

Sorry for the loss.

May your floors smell lovely for the rest of the year.

My husband is not of the same opinion that the floor smells lovely. I did try to kill it with vinegar but no luck. The air just kicked on and I think it is spreading. This is hilarious and horrible. lol.


Edit- it still smells like Flowerbomb in the bathroom and I think it might for the rest of our lease. Any tips for getting perfume out of composite surfaces?

Anecdotal Update, it takes five days for it do die down. My elf from the Secret Santa exchange came through with a Prelude to a Kiss, so I forsee a new and very carefully stored rollerball of Flowerbomb coming!

Re: Empties



I have finally decided to retire my first Guerlain lipstick. I realized it's probably older that some of the people on BT and thus probably time to go. I haven't used it in ages (years) but it was my first 'posh' lipstick and held some sentimental value. It's a great red-brick colour that's probably fashionable again.

A few years ago (before I got back into makeup), I had to retire some really old Lancome and Estee Lauder lipsticks.  I also had to let the custom one (my MUA artist made her own) that I got for my wedding go.  That was so hard, because I loved the color.  Some of my Lancome and Estee lippies were older than people on the boards, as well.

Alright, I can finally take a moment to post my empties from September/October.  I took these pictures before flying out.  One of all my empties and the other if items I will be repurchasing.image.jpg

Re: Empties

Nice emptying.  You did some serious damage.  I recently bought my first Organix product, and I am really liking it so far.  Mine is the split end mender, and my ends have never looked better.


Any winners in this lovely stash?  There are a few things I am curious on: the 3 little Wonders, which sunblocks you liked this time around and of course the Organix product.

Re: Empties

Oh yeah, I loved everything in the second pic.  The green stuff in th oh set tingles a bit more than I like but it really shows results .

i really Like the clarins sunscreen out of this batch.  It stood out the most. 

Re: Empties

My October Empties:


Obviously my face was breaking out a bit this month, judging from the number of acne treatment and concealer samples I went through.  I added the PTR Retinol Fusion PM to my nightly routine and that just screwed my skin up.  I wasn't sure if that was the culprit, so I waited for everything to clear and tried it again in 2 weeks.  Big mistake.  I wish it was just a "purging" phase, but acne was different from my usual one here or there and in places I normally didn't have issues with.  Anyways, here are the empties.




  • Purity face wash
  • Neutrogena makeup wipes
  • Redken All Full Shampoo
  • UD Primer Potion Original
  • Neutrogena blotting sheets
  • UD Perversion mascara
  • HG Veil Mineral Primer
  • BBW Creamy Pumpkin hand soap
  • Couture La La perfume
  • Glamglow Tinglemud


Might repurchase:

  • UD Naked foundation - I recently added Nars Sheer Glow and I like the way that dries down better.  The Naked foundation sometimes stayed tacky which I didn't like
  • Freeman Pineapple Enzyme mask - works ok, I have a bunch of Philosophy microdelivery exfoliating wash to work through now and I'm liking that better as a daily item instead of the pineapple mask 1-2x/wk.
  • Murad Acne Clearing Solution - Seems to work.  Liked it better than the clinique
  • Clinique Clearing Treatment


Won't repurchase:

  • UD Naked Loose Powder - Did not like the finish, almost seemed to decrease the coverage of my foundation, replaced with Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder
  • UD Primer Potion Eden
  • Amazing cosmetics concealer - recently purchased cover fx blemish concealer and like that better
  • Beauty Protector hair treatment mask - worked ok, I like the fekkai treatment better
  • PTR Retinol Fusion PM - Sad I have to throw out an almost full bottle.

I'm wondering whether the Color FX concealer might be better value for money than the AC Amazing Concealer; is the tube bigger? 

Re: Empties

Hi! If you don't mind, what didn't you like about PTR Retinol Fusion PM?

Re: Empties

It broke me out twice, acne was different from my usual one here or there and in places I normally didn't have issues with.

Re: Empties

I LOVE the Bvlgari Shampoo too! The scent,Thé blanc, takes me to my happy place as it is the toiletries provided on our favourite cruise line (and where I first used it) and now I use it when I'm feeling nostalgic for our trips and the amazing staff that we have become friends with over the years.


The boyfriend loves it too--it has a great unisex scent.

Re: Empties

I love the Bvlgari shampoo, both the red & the white one, I scored a stash from a hotel I stayed at on holidays. Beautiful bar soap as well from memory.

Re: Empties

[ Edited ]

It smelled great, left my hair squeaky clean, less frizzy than regular shampoo and more shiny than regular shampoo.  I loved it, too.  Which hotel did you stay at?  It would not be the first time I tried a hotel based on the amenities carried.


I love Sheraton hotels, but I hate their Shine products.  I usually try to stay elsewhere to avoid them when possible.  The Peter Thomas Roth products carried at the Hilton are not my favorite either.  The lotion smells like a man.
