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.

So dumb question about the Batiste Dry Shampoo.  I've seen so many varieties.  Do they each have different scents?

Re: Empties

Yes, I love The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter. I hate eating coconuts, but I love the way they smell (same with coffee).

Re: Empties

My empties from this week:

empties 1.17.16.jpg

Loves

-Trish McEvoy Triangle of Light Eye Mask - I used these twice (two sides = two uses Smiley Very Happy ). I used these when I was sick and when I was running on 4 hours of sleep and needed to look presentable for work. WOW these really worked. Very hydrating, plumping, and de-puffing. Looked up the price of these badboys and they're $68 for 8 packets. I might repurchase these because they're just that good. 

 

Likes

-GlamGlow Thirstymud - I have combo skin that leans oily so I didn't find my skin needing the benefits of this mask like someone with dry skin might. I did enjoy using it in the winter though.

-The Body Shop Shea Sugar Scrub - I love the scent. Gentle scrub. I prefer one a little bit more abrasive, but it was nice.

-MUFE Ultra HD in Y255 - good formula, good coverage, and very natural looking. Not overly impressed with it but I like it.

-Dermadoctor KP Duty - made the keratosis pilaris bumps on the backs of my arms much smoother and less bumpy. 

 

So-So

-Victoria's Secret Noir Tease Body Mist - I used to love this scent in years ago but I think I outgrew it. This one smelled kinda cheap to me. 

-Ahava Purifying Mud Mask - This is a two minute mask which is really convenient to put on in the shower. It didn't really compete with my other mud masks though.

-BareMinerals 5in1 cream eyeshadow - I love the creaminess of this upon application but because of this consistency it creased even with my favorite shadow primer.

-Pink Sugar perfume - very warm, sweet scent. Would be a nice layering perfume with something musky but still a little too sweet for me.

 

Dislikes

-Beautyblender Liquid Blender Cleanser - this did nothing more than a liquid hand soap in my opinion. I actually had to use my Solid beauty blender cleanser after using this liquid version because it left a lot of makeup still in the sponge. 

-Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in Fairly Light Neutral - no matter how much or how little I used of this, or how quickly I set it with powder, it always did the opposite of what the name suggests -- it creased SUPER bad on me. 

Re: Empties

I'm using the GLAMGLOW Thirstymud treatment and really love it, but I have super dry skin. I also love the way it smells!

Yeah it definitely seems best suited towards dry skin.

Re: Empties

I love the thirsty mud too. I have the mask and the cleanser

Re: Empties

The scent is super yummy! It reminds me of cookie dough

Re: Empties

Really trying to give my skin a break from too many changes, so not too many empties, but figured I'll post what I have:

Love (have repurchased or will repurchase):

Lush Celebrate Lotion

Belif Moisturizing Bomb

TokyoMilk Dark Tainted Love

 

Like (may or may not repurchase):

AmorePacific Moisture Bound Masque

Bite Lip Gloss in Strangefruit

Replica Beach Walk

BareMinerals Stroke of Light (almost a dislike, but could try another sample) 

Elizabeth+James Nirvana White x2 (not bad, but I have so many samples that I'm getting tired of it)

Stila Smudgestick in Purple Tang (this particular color had alot of glitter in it, so would like to try other colors)

TruBeauty Spatula (liked the square tip on this scoop, but it snapped off)

 

Dislike (no plans to purchase):

Thierry Mugler Angel (too masculine for me)

SK-II Facial Essence (didn't notice any difference, didn't like the scent)

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I too really love the Lush Celebrate Lotion.  I like the SK-II facial essence but I feel like my skincare routine has gotten so pricy at this point I can't decide if I really want to spend the $$$ on it.  Trying Raw Sauce next.

Re: Empties

 Does the Belif Moisturing Bomb have a scent?

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

It's sort of a light herbal.  A bit medicinal, but in a pleasant way.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

It might have had a light floral or powdery scent, but nothing I recall as being too strong or remarkable one way or the other.

Re: Empties

i got one of those spatulas in my stocking but now I can't find it!

Re: Empties

Yayy for Lush empties! I'm glad you really liked it. I received a tub and am looking forward to using it. The smell is great!

 

I had the same thoughts about the SKII. Did you get your's in the SoKo to Tokyo set? I was very disappointed it didn't live up the hype :/

Re: Empties

I love the lemony smell of Celebrate.  I bought so many tubs last year in the BOGO sale, and I'm still using them!

 

The SKII sample came from the VIBGLOW promo bag.  I was glad I didn't like it because I know how much a full bottle costs!  Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

That lip gloss is completely gone - impressive!!
