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

It took me a while to figure that out.  After having it crease 90% of the time when I applied the shadows within two minutes of application, I now have about a 90% success rate of no creasing if I wait over five minutes from applying it and waiting for shadows.  The amount makes a difference, too.  Applying too little obviously does not work well but surprisingly, you can also apply too much.  Whenever I apply a lot (which I have the tendency to do with everything), I get creasing as well.  The trick is to do one tiny squirt (that is enough) and wait five or more minutes after application to start shadows.  

 

That is why I will never buy it though.  My NARS rarely creases no matter how I apply it.  If you have samples though, this technique is a good way to put them to use.

Re: Empties

Urban Decay, you are so high maintenance Smiley Happy

 

I've moved over to my sample of NARS, and I'm still having the creasing issue, so I think I'll take this technique and try it out. Thanks for the tips!

Re: Empties

I just saw your message above.  Once you've tried the technique for a while, please let me know how it goes.  Good luck.

Re: Empties

Cotton buds that fall apart too easily annoy me intensely! Can definitely empathize!

Re: Empties

As soon as I am done with my stockpile, I am trying Sheseido.  The problem is my stockpile will probably last me through 2015.  I like to buy things in bulk.

Re: Empties

The Shiseido ones are amazing, and a pack lasts quite a long time compared to the cotton rounds!

Re: Empties

Another great month for me!

Re: Empties

What June Jacobs item is it and what did you think of it?

Re: Empties

It was an exfoliating mask. I wasn't impressed much, it was very very gentle, and I didn't feel much results. it might be a good product for a sensitive skin, though, but not for mine. I like Exfolikate better. 

Re: Empties

Thanks for letting me know.  I only use one June Jacobs product so far (the foot cream), but I really like it.

 

I love Exfolikate.  The only one I like when I refuse to splurge on Exfolikate is the one from Benefit.  I get rashes from so many and find the others ineffective.  I think I remember you writing that you were not a Benefit fan though.

Re: Empties

I like the Benefit's scrub though, I think their skincare is pretty good. I'm not a big fan of their makeup and corporate rules/policies Smiley Happy 

Re: Empties

I keep getting samples of their skincare (and other than the exfoliant that I surprisingly bought without ever sampling, I have yet to try any of it.  Glad to read you like it.  I will eventually give it a try.

Re: Empties

I am so curious what is in the lip package?

Re: Empties

It was a Korean lip mask from one of the memeboxes. Nothing special. I didn't feel it did anything to my lips

i came, i saw, i used!!!

Re: Empties

I love the scent of the soft soap - body butter coconut scrub I've lost count of how many times I've bought it.

Re: Empties

BiFacial is fantastic.  I like that you only had one no from everything you tried.  I know your skin color is not much darker than mine.  How are you applying the chocolate soliel?  I used it (again) for the first time the other day.  I am liking it more than before but thinking I will concentrate it on certain areas and use a lighter bronzer in others.  

Re: Empties

i like it...i use a mac 163 around the outside of my forehead and use my ud optical blurring blush to blend...it ends up being very subtle on me

Re: Empties

Thanks. I am thinking of using it for the hollows of my cheeks and sides of my nose but trying a lighter color for my three and E.  I will keep practicing applying it with a lighter hand and blending more.
