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.

Great empties.  Looks like you used up some serious product.  And I like your idea of writing reviews all month because I have some serious empties under my sink right now and the thought of reviewing and photographing them has felt overwhelming so I haven't.

Great empties. I just purchased a different Macadamia mask that is my all time favorite, but I really like the one you finished, too.

 

Which Disney property did you stay at? 

 

Impressed with how many fragrance vials you finished. I am going to finish one some day. 

 

I am not impressed with the YSL Full Metal Shadows either. It was a hot mess on me. I was going to fairy princess and looked more like I did not wash my makeup off after a night at the club. Mine is full-size, but unsanitary to pass on. It will be another item in my never used makeup graveyard.

Re: Empties

March was pretty successful for me. Especially in the makeup department. I'm exhausted from a crazy day at work and won't go into too much detail but if you have any questions on the products feel free to ask. There might be some snark.

Moar of this:

Deva Curl Styling Crème

Skinceuticals CE Ferulic Serum: HG for years. It’s a strong Vit C serum but doesn’t irritate my skin. I’m giving the DE C-Firma serum a try and it’s a good dupe for it.

Swisspers Cotton Rounds

Listerine UltraClean Mouthwash

 

Meh, I’ll give it another try if nothing better comes along:

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Cerave Hydrating Cleanser

Jan Marini Peptide Extreme Serum

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream

Murad Oil Control Mattifier

Nailtiques Formula 2 Protein

 

Nooooooo, just no:

Dr. Denese HydroShield Eye Serum

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream

Giovanni  Soft Hold Styling Gel

Moar of this:

Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black

Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyebrow Gel

 

 

Meh, I’ll give it another try if nothing better comes along:

Burberry Body

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Honey & Custard: a combo of the wrong colors for my skintone and improper technique. I didn’t understand the hype and a part of me still doesn’t. I did have much better luck with this once I used the Sephora Collection concealer brush.  I’m sick of this concealer atm but maybe down the road I’ll give it another try.

  

Nooooooo, just no:

Benefit Posie Cheek & Lip Stain

Benefit ChaCha Cheek & Stain

Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer

Buxom Buxom Lash Mascara

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Fresh & Hydrating Cream Compact: Horrendous. I've got combo skin with average size pores in my t-zone. This looks beautiful the first 5 minutes and the color matched perfectly. After that it turned into an orange oxidized mess that made my pores look like craters. I couldn't wear it on my own and had to mix it with a matte foundation to use up.

Wet n Wild Icon Eyeshadows in Comfort Zone & Petal Pusher: These are good shadows but I think they just expired or something went off. I tried wearing them but my eyes did not agree. At $2.45, it'll be a toss.

 

Loooooook, I wiped it cleaaaaan:

Great empties and impressed you have the strength to throw away things that aren't working.  I'm bad about hanging onto things even when I know I won't use them.

Re: Empties

My son is impressed with that CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser to the point that he will not let me buy anything else, and our Target is always OOS. It does leave my skin softer, but I miss the clean feeling when I use it. I moisturize after each shower anyway, so I'd rather stick to cleansing soap.

 

I will try the SkinCeuticals some day.

Re: Empties

Looks like you used up a bunch.  Congrats!  I also like how you organized them.

Re: Empties

Great month of cleaning house. I had some of that shea butter from the Body Shop in my cart, but the sale ended. Love it. Want some more.

Re: Empties

Lots of full size empties this month and a lot not shown here. I was travelling, and on the last day looked at all the empties I used up, and had a IDGAF moment and threw them out - BUT I listed missing items below the picture Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

Sprytely sent me one of those Monkey Masks. Is it weird that I cannot bring myself to use it out of sheer cuteness? What did you think? Should I use it or save it for my Year of the Monkey shrine?

Re: Empties

It looks amusing!

Re: Empties

Yup this was from her too lol

I really liked it, my skin was soft and glowy after

Re: Empties

What are your thoughts on Rose Jam and Ocean Salt?

 

Also, is that a sigma F80 brush you're tossing?!

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

@karap03 Quite the eye! Yes it is, the metal part is super wiggly and the bristles have seen better days. 

 

 

Ocean Salt is a holy grail item for me but I don't use it on my face, just body. Rose Jam I only picked up this last Christmas and it's nice, smells like roses, nothing super exciting I guess.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

my F80 died the same way a couple months ago...sweet dreams dear brushes!

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

I use Ocean Salt in the same way and I'm obsessed.  I haven't bought any in awhile because I've been trying to use other scrubs in my stash but the scent and feel are amazing!
