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 love months when there are no dislikes. What Tatcha item is that and what are your specific thoughts on it?

Re: Empties

@notcreative it is the cleansing oil,it is a good basic cleansing oil nothing different  from any other cleansing oil but it works.

Re: Empties

@notcreative

I'm positive the Tatcha is the cleansing oil. I've debated before about purchasing it 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.
