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




Missha Essence

Maxi Lash

Living Proof styling treatment

Nars tinted moisturizer



I wouldn't re purchase anything else...

Is that the thick Eucerin? What did you not like about it?

That's an epic empties stash!

Re: Empties

HI all! I have been a lurker to this thread for a while--I can't post pics on my app for some reason, and I am pretty OCD about tossing or recycling. Anyhoo, I just realized that you all post minii-reviews, I love that!! I will have eto visit more often. I enjoy seeing what people use up and why and if it was a good or bad thing!


One question--what do you do with things that you just don't like?  I have trouble throwing perfectly good things away, but then they sit there and make me feel guilty--like I have to force myself to use them.  Examples--a Full size Cargo lippie from birchbox or somewhere, it is like a super pale shade that makes my lips disappear if I use it. I have a Lancome palette that I spent 50 dollars on (my first and last one!) it is so full of GLITTER and fallout, it is unbearable.  I realy want to just toss and not hoard. Enable me, please, to get RID of stuff!

For things like palettes, if they are barely used some people sanitize and swap them with other people or include in one of the TSB's.  For things like lip glosses that you can't exactly sanitize I usually try mixing with other colors I own to see I like it better or pass it off to my mom or sister.  Typically I have been bad about throwing things away too but as my collection has grown I've realized it doesn't make sense to waste precious space on products I am realistically never going to use.

Unless I despise something, I tend to finish it as well. I usually give away duplicates though, because I do not want to open something I hated the first time. What Lancome palette do you hate? Most Lancome palettes have a lot of shimmer (something I like), but I cannot think of any full of glitter (other than micro glitter which does not bother me) or fallout. I am finally starting to appreciate mattes a little more, but my heart still lies with shimmer.

Re: Empties

I usually give the items that are perfectly good, but I just don't like to a friend or family member. 

Re: Empties

Whoops, I forgot to post my empties for the past few months. Here they are.




BEST: Sephora Green Tea mask

WORST: Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick in Beso. I've come to realize that I just hate liquid lipsticks, so it was time to toss it.




BEST: L'oreal Miss Manga mascara

WORST: Nothing! June was an excellent month for using up favorites and staples, and I'll repurchase everything here.




BEST: Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser. It took forever, but I finally used it up. I love how it warms when it comes into contact with water.

WORST: Sephora Super Nourishing Lip Balm. This one's a "worst" because there was a package defect, and the balm keeps falling out of the tube. Otherwise, I love this lip balm.

Re: Empties

That green tea mask has been the only item in my loves list for a while. I want to use the other ones I bought before I purchase more, but I am glad to see it is worth the wait.

Re: Empties

I think the green tea and honey masks are the best, and the ginseng is the worst.

Re: Empties

Great reviews.  I have a sample of that cleanser so now I'm curious to try it.

Re: Empties

i love that Sephora lip balm, too--not bad for 5 bucks!

Re: Empties

I buy 10 at a time during the winter sale.

Re: Empties

Please tell me more about the SC Advanced Pigment Corrector.

Re: Empties

It's a non-hydroquinone based dark spot corrector and probably the first dark spot corrector I see make a difference. I didn't think it worked well for my one freckle I don't like but it did wonders with old acne marks when coupled with a chemical exfoliant.
