Empties

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.

Re: Empties

I have a couple of samples of those and have been meaning to try them out.

Re: Empties

Loos great to me.  Nothing you didn't like sounds like a win.  That apple peppermint mask sounds interesting!

Re: Empties

My first time posting empties! I don't have much but wanted to share what I finished up. The loves: Bumble n Bumble Don't Blow it. It's the second bottle I've finished and will definitely be repurchasing another again. It brings out the waves in my 2b hair without having to use heat. The JM Argan Cleansing Oil is a HG of my mine. I've tried a few other cleansing oils and I keep going back to this one. It doesn't leave a film or break me out. The Caudalie moisturizer is perfect for the summer time. The Korres cleanser worked great with my Clarisonic. 

The no: Orgins clear improvement mask. It took so long for me to finish it. I used it 1-2x a week but didn't see much of a difference in my skin. 

These empties are so inspiring to see. I love the feeling of using up products. I now have a bin set aside so I can keep everything I finish at the end of the month. Hopefully I'll have some makeup items to share!

Re: Empties

I am getting excited to try that Bumble and bumble product now.

Re: Empties

I think those are great empties!  Don't discount your progress.

Re: Empties

Yay!   You did great on your first month!  I'm so tempted to crack my sample of that bumble and bumble but I'm working on another product at the moment.  Soooooooon!   

Re: Empties

I've had my eye on the Bumble and Bumble but wasn't sure if it was just a glorified leave-in conditioner. Might have to pick up a sample now!

Definitely pick up a sample when you are in store.  Hopefully it'll be a hit for you.

Re: Empties

Welcome! 

 

this thread has always been one of my favorites. It keeps me going through my stash and use up or toss things. 

 

I love the bb don't blow it! I actually love the straight and all style as well. The products don't weigh my hair down and give a great finish.

Thanks for the welcome!  I put aside some products that I'd like to finish up this year. This thread has been so helpful in making a dent in my stash. 

Re: Empties

July Empties! I am super proud of the fact that there are TWO full-size powders here. They were obviously a long time coming. I already repurchased the Hourglass but won't get the Besame again, or at least not the Violet. I might try the Vanilla one at some point, as I did like the texture.

 

Loves: Have or Would Repurchase

Meh: Nothing Special, not at full price

Spoiler
CoverFX foils - all these were the wrong color. I might test out the concealer, at least, in the right color. I wasn't impressed enough with the highlighters to bother color-hunting.
Boscia masks - I didn't quite finish these. I got frustrated with the peel-off aspect; either you glob it on and it takes ages to dry (and in some places just won't at all), or you don't put on enough and it won't peel off properly.
Dior foundation - holy alcohol batman! Just no.
Amika dry shampoo - no results
Korres Rose Brightening Facial - enough alcohol to sting, and I tihnk it was breaking me out.
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation - wrong color, way too dark, also just getting old.
Butter London Double Decker mascara - way too wet and clumpy
Ole Henriksen Truth Hydrating Cream - made my face red and itchy
John Masters Organics hair milk - felt too heavy and "producty" in my hair
UD One and Done - highlighted dry spots like WHOA, too sheer for me
Derma-e Microdermabrasion scrub - too harsh
CT Primer - felt weird, did nothing for my makeup

Re: Empties

I still really want to try Hypnose mascara and am still bummed that I ordered that Sephora bag advertising Hypnose only to discover it was Hypnose Drama, which I own a lot of.

Re: Empties

Great empties!  Two full sized powders is definitely really impressive.  I have the Hourglass Ambient lighting palette and have used up 2 of the 3 but ever since I got a single I haven't come back to it as often and probably should!

Re: Empties

 

Wow great job finishing up SO many stuff! Smiley Happy Definitely motivates me to use up more products.

Re: Empties

Awesome job with your empties!  Finally finishing that Hourglass is an accomplishment in itself. 

Re: Empties

What dedication!!

Re: Empties

I have been working on my HG powder for two years off and on. It seems bottomless but I have hope. 

Re: Empties

That Boscia bright white mask was a nope for me too.  Anyone who wants to mask and wax their face at the same time might love it though, lol.  

Re: Empties

Wow @JazaChai! You really clean out the Hourglass! Which one was it and how long did it take you to finish? 

Re: Empties

It was Diffused Light and it took me probably a year. I used it almost daily in winter as an allover setting powder (now that it's summer I'm using a mattifying one to combat humidity).

 

When it got low, like just in the corners, I used the end of a brush to break it up so I could use it as a loose powder to get the dregs of it, especially for undereyes. My face powder brush is too big to get into the corners, but I use the small teardrop SephoraxHakuhodo brush for undereye powder, which worked perfectly.

Yassss:

Equate makeup removing wipes - I really love these. They remove my makeup and don't sting my eyes. 

Sexy hair Soy Tri-wheat leave in - holy amazing. I can definitely tell when I don't use this. It keeps my hair tangle free and manageable. I try to stock up when it goes one saleSmiley Happy

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue - one of my favorite perfumes. It's light and fresh. I've already purchased a full size bottle.

Dove Cucumber & Green Tea Deodorant - keeps my pits dry and un-smelly. Works great for sensitive underarms. 

Bath & Body Works Strawberry, Bourbon, & Vanilla Shower Gel - love this scent! Lathers well, and gets me clean. 

Shisedo Cotton - really like that this doesn't ball up or get caught in my lashes. Definitely want to buy this again. 

Kate Somerville Exfolikate - love this stuff. I use this 1 time a week and my skin likes it. 

 

Likes:

Living Proof Restore Shampoo & Conditioner - smells good, kept my hair soft. I just love my Redkem Extreme more. 

Biore Nose Pore Strip - so satisfying seeing all this little gunk trees on it after you take it off. 

FAB Radiance Pads - I really like these but noticed they left my skin a little sticky after a while. 

MAC Oil Control Lotion - apply before makeup application and it helps with my oily mess. 

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Primer - like this, smoothes my face leaving it smooth and flawless. Also like that it doesn't contribute to my oil problem, but helps keep it at bay.
