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.
I bought a ton of masks during the F&F sale and tried to use as many as possible to figure out if I wanted to buy them again during the holiday sale. The only ones I'll repurchase are Tony Moly.
That makes sense. I bought a lipstick during the employee appreciation (my first Audacious). I kept saying I would try it before each upcoming sale came. Still have not tried it, but I plan to either tomorrow or Thursday.
I think that is where I saw that cute lip mask (although I am not sure). I ended up buying it just so I can try it out (can't wait for it to arrive). It is going right on. I actually have about 15 masks headed to me and look forward to trying them all.
I did not even think of joining the TSB, because I only want to join a TSB if I have something good to contribute. I have very few sheet masks and most of my applied masks are the ones everyone already has (GlamGlow and the like).
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
It was difficult to apply (it's a spatula instead of a spoolie). It was easy to over apply and then my brows looked wet for the rest of the day, like over-geled hair. It also didn't take care of a few flyaway brow hairs. My brows are pretty well-behaved, but there are some rebels. ABH did nothing to quash the brow rebellion.
ETA: See below for my idiocy.
Ahahaha, oh boy. Guys, I may have solved the mystery of why my product sucked so badly. It's not for brows!
This is what I bought:
"What it does: This gel ensures powder makeup, including loose pigments, shadows, micas, and glitter, stay put."
So, like some cross between a shadow primer and a setting spray. But not a brow gel.
Well, I'm an idiot. It's already been tossed in the recycle bin and collected, so there's no salvaging it. That's OK. I didn't need an ABH glitter glue anyway.
I am now tempted to try the proper ABH brow gel. Hmmm ...
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
I have never even heard of this, but you have me intrigued.
On a side note, ABH Brow Gel is the best I've ever used. It tames the brows to where they look nicely groomed, and it does not leave them crunchy. I highly recommend you try it.
Re: Empties[ Edited ]
This thread has inspired me to stop hoarding my beauty items and use them up--thank you for the inspiration ladies. I travel a fair amount and forgot to keep my foils from those trips, but these are my first collection of empties. The time range is from August -November 2015.
Philosphy Homemade Honey Bunss 3 in 1 this smells like I want all of Autumn to smell, it's like confectionery in your bath, in your hair, delightful in every way.
Urban Decay Setting Spray--Sandwich in between your make up and THEN it sets all day.
Loreal Nutri gloss Shampoo and Conditioner---My damaged hair felt healthier and shinier, this is my favorite sample of the lot.
All of the fragrances have been discontinued, but if I could I would buy Heavenly Bloom again. I dislike Heavenly but this version is doused in Gardenia and I felt like a spring flower every day that I wore it.
Bliss All about Eyes Eye Cream--Its expensive so I don't purchase it often, but I notice a decrease in darkness and puffiness when I use it.
Dr. Jart BB Cream Is light for the weekend and has the SPF in it that's high enough for my fair skin. I will purchase a big tube of this one day.
Urban Decay eye potion in Anti- Aging --I use this every day, no one has made one that will make me give up my loyalty for this one.
Boi-ing by Benefit Great for zits bad for undereye bags. Worth a repurchase one day.
BAD STAY AWAY --
The Purity 3 in 1 for face left my skin tight as did the Orgins Checks and Balances, not good for me.
Everything else in the bunch were just ok--I've found other brands (or colors in case of the O.P.I that were better--if a friend was giving them away I would take them and use them but wouldn't buy them myself.
For me it's merely adequate, if you have something you already love I wouldn't switch to it. It doesn't have quite the hold I want for it when I wear my hair curly so I use it as a product when I straighten my hair.
Would you mind explaining what you mean about sandwiching the UD spray in-between your makeup? I have a little sample of that and I'm kind of afraid to try it because I don't quite know what to do with it
Sure! The sandwich proceedure: first I apply sunscreen, then face primer and eyeshadow primer. I then spray the UD make-up setting spray all over. Then I apply my make-up (even loose powder and lipstick), and spray it again to set. My skin is oily and I notice that I don't have to powder my face until very late in the day if I do this trick. If I'm out at night I usually don't have to powder my nose at all.
I hope this helps!
