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 like them but I don't love them, I would occasionally get one cotton round that would fall apart and leave cotton fibers in my eyes/: I have about a 1/4 of my last bag of swisspers but I wasn't to try something new.

I've heard great things about Shisedo cotton. 

Re: Empties

Stephani - I highly recommend the Shiseido cotton.  I used to think it was way too crazy expensive to spend ten bucks on a pack of cotton but they are really worth it.  I can't stand using any  other cotton rounds/squares now.

Re: Empties

Oh my gosh, I agree. Once I realized that I was using 3 of the Target brand cotton rounds at a time (because they were so thin & would fall apart) I decided they weren't such a bargain, after all. The Shiseido just feel so lovely and like a little (affordable) luxury every day.

Re: Empties

I had exactly the same reaction.  My first cotton pads were the Swisspers- hated them.  Then I used Sephora brand, which are pretty nice, but not as soft as the Shiseido.  I actually calculated the cost per pad and Sephora and Shiseido are basically the same price.  Shiseido all the way!

Re: Empties

Adding it to my loves list so I remember to get it lol.

They also sell them at Saks, Nordstrom, etc., so sometimes I buy them there if I have a 15% off code or if there's a good GWP and I don't want to spend a lot.

Keep me posted on how you like them  once you buy them. 

Re: Empties

I don't keep my empties around long enough to photograph, but I did finish 5 full size items, 18 DS, and 48 foils this month!!! I have been doing the $2 when I finish a full size, $0.50 for a DS, and $0.25 for a foil and came up with $31 (I think) for this month!!

Re: Empties

I too love the Too Faced Hangover primer and L'Occitane almond shower oil. Two of my favorite products!!

Re: Empties

As soon as I use up my insane backup stash of wipes, I am finally going to try Bioderma. Tangle Teezer is also on my list to try, because I love the Wet Brush and want to compare.

 

I love the new Bye Felicia category.

Re: Empties

Smiley Happy the bioderma will be the only wipes i use!  like i did swatches of my whole 296 lip product collection....3 wipes removed every single swatch!!! 

Re: Empties

I've heard good things about the Bioderma wipes from quite a few ladies now. Where do you buy them?

Re: Empties

i'm in canada so i get them at shoppers drug mart.  if you're in the states i think you have to get them at beautylish. 

Re: Empties

I have a TON of empties this time.  It includes both November and December since I was out of the country and couldn't post my November ones.

Re: Empties

I finished a Neutrogena sunscreen (also love) over the summer but I could not find the container. Well, my husband took the boys for a snow day on NYE. I prepped the backpack and no joke I found the empty bottle inside. While I am unsure why he grabbed an empty bottle and stuck it in the bag, I am glad he did not toss it.

 

 

Re: Empties

Have you tried the Becca SSP in poured? I've been thinking about buying Pearl and can't decide which formula.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Yes, I HATED that formula.  I have very dry skin and when I wore the poured SSPs I looked greasy.  I didn't apply a lot or anything.  It just looked really bad on me.  The liquid form is really good though.  I use it quite a lot and really love how it looks.  

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

That's good to know. I too have dry skin so it sounds like I might have to pass on the poured.

Re: Empties

What is that one packet in the first picture, top right corner? Sheet mask?

 

I recently picked up the BB Solid because I had a GC and wanted nothing from Sephora and I love it. I went so long using cheaper "dupes" but nothing cleaned by BB and brushes like the solid did.
