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.
Not a high volume empties but some much loved products. This Sisley foundation was my first super luxe makeup item and I used it for many years. I'm on the hunt for a foundation with similar coverage/finish at a more reasonable price, but imagine I'll rebuy this at some point.
Sadly will not be rebuying the ren balm. After some testing, this 100% breaks me out big time.
Luckily this was not FS - it game in that 'Pure Glow Trio' with some small sizes of masks/treatments, so I did not feel too slighted. I really wanted to like it, so that was a bummer but never know until you try!
Nice! I tried to buy sisley foundation thus summer while in Ansterdam at Douglas but the lightest shade was way too dark for me. I never checked to see if they had lighter options online or if that was it.
I think I'm behind on posting, but here's a few recent empties:
Living Proof Flex Hairspray - already backed up
Clarins extra firming day and night
Radical serum - was free gwp from Saks!
Sephora konjac sponge
ABH Brow wiz
l'artisan parfumeur noir exquis - so annoyed this sample be a,e empty in my purse after one use!
OH Truth Serum - I never really know if this is doing anything but seems nice enough
I think the truth serum works. It has lots of vitamin c which keeps dark spots at bay. It just doesn't work in a noticeable way since the fading is gradual to begin with and then it's all upkeep from thereonin.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
Alright, I posted my empties while travelling but here is what I have at home for the last two months. I have seen the empties with a twist thread and like the concept. Since I'm on a no buy I think I'll play that game where items used up equal spending money on cosmetics. Gotta clear it with the hubs first of course.
Full sized = $2.00
Loved- I have either already bought more of these products or plan to. I forgot to add I am in love with the peppermint cream from Meganlisas site. That should've gone in this pile,.
The tatcha camellia cleansing balm is so very greasy. I had to force myself to get through the two samples.
The nars audacious went all flakey on my cheeksInto the second week. . It was good the first week though.
The mj liner I didn't even get to use. I opened it and the whole stick fell out on the floor.
I like this game idea - I started it a few days ago, and I am up to 1 full size and 5 deluxe and foil sizes! I think I may add on a separate category for color cosmetic items like eyeshadow, blush, and lippies since those seem to take forever to use up…and price them at $4.00
I play this game too! Admittedly, I am well into the negative for 2015....so 2016 I am going to close that gap and use up allll of these things. I am with you in spirit, hearts!
Yay! Are you on a no buy as well? I just need to clear out some of it. Having a lot of luxury stuff doesn't feel so luxurious. It just feels cluttered.
My problem is that I always want to try EVERYTHING!!!
I am going on very low buy for 2016. I bought SO much this year - got married so justified it, and then post wedding had more fun money than I had during wedding planning, and blew way too much on cosmetics. I feel like I have so much I won't even enjoy it now. So I am going to just replace things after I "earn" them from empties this year.
Also Hearts, what did you think of the SR cleansing balm? I have used it a few times and I swear it has changed my skin. I have been dry and dehydrated and lately I am (almost) oily. I love it!
Having two incomes is kinda a game changer as far as expendable income😉
i liked med what I tried but I don't think I had enough to get a really good feel for it. It reminded me of the eve lom cleanser which I liked. Right now I'm in love with the green shu uemura cleansing oil folliwed by ole henriksen red tea cleanser.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
It's around 38.50 for the last two months. Not too shabby. At this rate I'll be able to buy one nice item every four months. (Edit-I'm not allowed with my jewellery challenge after all but I'm still going to save up cosmetic dollars for next november) This game will help keep me in line cause I will still be satisfying my need to accumulate something.
You should give it a try - and feel free to change to numbers to suit your own goals.
