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.

Do you prefer the Odacite CaR over the GtL for brightening?

Re: Empties

@lucylui actually for brightening I prefer their private blend summer in hossegor serum - it also has carrot in it 😉

Tata Haper Moisturizing Mask - again, the smell really turned me off
L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm -  glad to finally be done with this after 2 years
BECCA Beach Tint Lip Shimmer Souffle in Raspberry/Opal - very sticky and didn't apply well  

 

Re: Empties

That's interesting about those underarm deodorant wipes.  They seem to like putting things in wipe packaging as I've noticed they have lotion wipes as well.  It's too bad that they don't work because their scents are so lovely.  I got some similar wipes in a small TS pack from birchbox when I needed to add something else to get the full value of my points.  I don't think they carry them anymore because my searches come up with nothing, but I quite liked them.  I have a lot of overnight trips for work where I try to get away with just my baggy of liquids and a small makeup case for non-liquid items and I liked how much less space it took up than a TS deodorant.

They were a great idea since they are easy to use and would be great for a quick wipe down after a workout...but they didn't do much at all. I have another pack I need to use Smiley Sad

Re: Empties

I know.  Such a great idea.  Too bad they sucked.

So impressed you finished a whole eyeshadow! That takes some determination! 

Re: Empties

I've been working on that one since the Spring so it's been a long time coming! Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

Only spring! More impressed then! I have eyeshadow add, I try to rotate them and give them all equal love, but then new ones come home...sigh. Is that 5 pan challenge thread still running? I'm thinking of doing that

I liked the alba body wash and booth lotion and would repurchase both on sale

Ulta eye makeup remover stung!
Lancome genifique broke me out

The becca primer picked right back up when you tapped over it with the blender

tarte rainforest of the sea cleanser wouldn't even remove a single layer of light eyeshadow, just balled it up and left glop on my eyelids.

Smashbox X-rated didn't dry completely and smudged.

 

Re: Empties

Thanks @kelloua! I am trying to make a dent in the neverending foil pile that just takes up space and looks cluttered. Bring on november!

Great empties!  This is a good reminder that I should just toss the DS mascaras I have open that aren't really doing it for me.

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

That's a lot of empties! I have heard mixed thoughts on the Boscia luminizing black mask. Did you find it painful to peel off? What results did you see?

Re: Empties

(0) Hearts

It is somewhat painful - depending on your pain tolerance haha. It does pull any any baby hairs you may have on your face. The results from this mask are immediate. It evens out my texture, calms my skin, and detoxifies. I notice a diffence right when I take it off! Make sure if you use it you allow it to dry completely or else it will be a nightmare to remove. Apply a thick even layer to your face and let it dry for about 40 minutes. Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

I agree with @karap03 I love the mask! I see immediate result! It's going on my Christmas list!

Liked the scrub, shaving cream was good, nice scent too. Didn't like Suave dry shampoo and other two products were old!

All of there I have or will eventually repurchase

Liked trying these, still have a foil left of Can+ Austin and the SkinInc Peel. Will use but not sure if I'll be purchasing. I would like to try GinZing again but wouldn't buy at the moment. I still have a few DS of dr brandt scrub so won't be buying and many more eyeliners

Spoiler
I used them up but will definitely not repurchase. Except for the hair mask I may consider trying it again. Foot cream wasn't the best I have a 2nd bottle will use it up but won't buy after that. Cotton pads feel apart very very easily. 

 

Re: Empties

Great empties.  Looks like you did pretty well this month with quite a few things in the love camp.  I can't decide how I feel about that Brigeo deep conditioning mask.  I've tried it a couple times and I'm not sure it does as much as other masks I use for moisture.

Re: Empties

I agree! I sort of hated the scent so that kept me from buy it plus I feel like I could find something better at a cheaper price. @JenniferOhJenny and 

 

@kelloua

Thanks! I've been trying to use up a lot of my foils and DS to see what's really like and works for my skin. 

Re: Empties

Same - but I've only used it once. I wasn't crazy about the smell and I honestly didn't feel like it was any better than my normal conditioner, let alone a moisturizing mask.
