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 just checked through my stash.  The only priner I have that meets your criteria is the Too Cool For School oil control primer.  It's very mattifying.  The only reason I own it is so that I can do other people's makeup.  I love shiny skin.  

Re: Empties

Ahh interesting.  I am always afraid of mattifying primers since I have such dry skin as it is. 

 

I just can't do glowy primers for daytime because I already have a natural glow to my skin and I always wear a separate highlighter.  If I wear a glowy primer before that I'll look like a greaseball.

The perfume vial is MJ Decadence & the clear bottle above it is the Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash

 

I finally finished up my Sephora brush cleanser! The bottle lasted forever!

 

 

Re: Empties

Is that cucumber supposed to have a face on it?   Lol, I love it! <the face, I've never tried them.  

 

I must be really wasteful with the brush cleaner cause I think I go through a big bottle every couple months.  I use the big bottle to keep refilling the little bottle for travelling cause the price is better.

lol! The cucumber wipes are baby wipes from Target! The hard plastic tab fell off inside my Empties ziploc bag and I figured no one would even pay attention 😂 I loooove using baby wipes on my face. I'm sure there's something wrong with doing that but until someone tells me... Haha

Re: Empties

I was thinking the same thing, @heartsmyface - I go through that brush cleaner so fast; I must be using too much Smiley Surprised

I'm not sure what others do but I spray each brush three or four times and swirl it on a cotton pad til no more color comes off.  I just thought I was paying a premium for being too lazy to actually wash my brushes.

That's basically what I do, too, but I was using Dr Bronners for deep cleaning intermittently, too, so the spray bottle just stretched a long time for me. Then one day I picked the bottle up and felt how little was left. I was excited, thinking I was almost through it, but then it even stretched out for an additional month! Haha I just felt like a little goes a long way with it - very effective! @heartsmyface

March/April Empties

I didn't hate anything here. I have or will repurchase UD primer potion, Hourglass Ambient in Dim Light, OH Truth Serum, Fresh Advanced Therepy, Nars all day luminous.

 

Here's the finished Dim Light next to my new one. It took me 16 months of daily (generous) use as an all over face powder to finish it!

Wow, I only have the ambient powder palette and I've had it for a year and haven't made a dent yet. I always wondered what it would look like once I hit pan.

That is incredible! 

Re: Empties

Oh wow!  Great job on emptying the ambient powder!   I'm in awe. 

Re: Empties

Thanks! Now if I could manage to finish just one lipstick...

Re: Empties

I've finished two in my lifetime.  Just two.  

 

I'm nearing the end of MAC Barely Lit soon.  Sigh.  By the end of summer perhaps cause I just don't have it in me to wear the same lipstick everyday. 

Re: Empties

I think that's my problem too. I have no problem committing to neutral face products like face powders and foundations and concealers, but when it comes to colored cosmetics? Total commitment issues.

First time empties poster.  This is only the second half of April cause that's when I started.

Re: Empties

Thanks...I feel all you ladies are putting me to shame here.  I better step it up lol

Re: Empties

April Empties!! Proud of these... I finished probably my first FS moisturizer this month!! Again, probably won't go through and itemize because there are SO many, but if you're curious about anything just ask!3

 

Loves: Have or would repurchase

Nope: Hated, in some cases didn't even finish

Spoiler
Some of these were just the wrong color, or are being purged because they dried out. The coconut+cream hand lotion was too greasy, the Strivectin stretch marks cream I got no results from (this is the 2nd or 3rd DS I've used, too), the NYX white eye base was just ew to work with, and I've decided I hate fiber mascara do that accounts for most of those DSes.

Re: Empties

@JazaChai Curious to know your thoughts on the PTR Irish Moor mask and whichever Philosophy "Clear" item that is.

 

 

Re: Empties

The PTR was just ok. It wasn't drying like other clay/mud masks usually are, which was nice, but I didn't feel like it did a great job clearing out pores or otherwise actually helping my face. It doesn't hold a candle to the Origins Charcoal mask, for example. But if you don't need heavy-duty detoxing, and normal clay/mud masks are too drying for you, this might be a good option.

 

The philosophy Clear things are salicylic acid pads. I got them from the Outlet section of the direct site (aka their old stock clearance aisle), so I'm not sure if they're still making them. They were comparable to the FAB pads, maybe a bit stronger. If you like those you'd like these too.
