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

That would be exactly my problem. I live in a tiny studio apartment, so throwing anything out feels especially good due to the limited space. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Empties

No worries, Gwen, that's not rude at all!  Actually I keep a small box in my bathroom.  Every time I finish something I throw it in there and at the end of the month I take them all out and photograph them.  Then I toss them out.  Actually it's kinda fun because I throw a bunch of stuff out all at once.

Re: Empties

That makes some sense. A box at least would make it look neater. I'm trying to devise a way to jump on this and participate, but I'm not sure I'll be able to yet.

Re: Empties

I am double posting this month. These empties were too good to wait a few more days haha

Hourglass ambient lighting palette, center powder incandescent light (of course the shade I loved was the only palette exclusive shade). loved this powder but I can't justify buying a $58 palette for it. Must find dupe.

Bareminerals eyeshadow duo in mixology/congac Deluxe sample. There was a lot of product in the deluxe sample. I used it pretty often and it lasted me a good 10 months. After the first month I bought the full sized product, and glad I did because not long after that the eyeshadow duos were discontinued. I like this formula and the colors.

Re: Empties

Hitting pan on these, especially the ALP, is so impressive.

Re: Empties

This is my favorite duo too. When I run out I plan on trying out MUG Mirage as a potential dupe... I have no idea what do do for Cognac though.

Re: Empties

I rarely use my HG palette, but I mostly only use Dim when I do. If I get to the bottom, it will be on that shade. It's kind of neat to see what it looks like.

 

The pans on that palette are deeper than I thought. Impressed.

Re: Empties

Here I expected them to be deeper.  Silly me.

Re: Empties

I meant the BM palette, not the HG palette. I separated the paragraphs for the different product but now realize it can look like I am talking about the same thing in both. When I look at the BM sample palette in person it looks really shallow. In her picture, it looks deeper and she said it lasted 10 months. I'm impressed. 

Re: Empties

I've had mine since the summer of last year (edit-full size). I'm sure if I hadn't gotten the Soundtrack palette and Vice3 I'd probably be done with this duo. I put my Rhythm pan on it's side so you can compare the pan depth. A little thicker than a quarter I think?

Re: Empties

I'm impressed! I love incandescent light too but am nowhere near finishing it. Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

Wow!  Good job on the Hourglass!!  That's amazing!  I cannot imagine coming close to finishing any of those powders!

Re: Empties

There's an Hourglass Flagship store in LA. I read on Reddit that you can call in to place a custom palette order and they will ship it to you. (I think there's a small shipping charge) 

Perhaps you can see if they have incandescent light, then you can make a palette with only incandescent light. LOL

 

 

Re: Empties

they don't have incandescent...i have friends who tried Smiley Sad

Re: Empties

Sparklekai is right, they only carry the normal 6 shades. If I happen to be in the area again (which I 100% will be because they opened my favorite Portland based donut shop on the same street Smiley Tongue) I can ask about Incandescent, but they'll probably just tell me to get the palette haha

Re: Empties

Blue star in Venice??? I've been dying to go!!! Smiley Tongue they also serve stump town there! 

Re: Empties

Yes! I passed by a couple days before the opening and they were giving out free donuts!!! It was too late in the afternoon for me to get any though Smiley Sad 

 

I happen to work very close to a Stumptown, which is good for me because it takes about 45 minutes for me to actually get to Venice haha

Re: Empties

I heard there was a stumptown by alfreds in brentwood but I'm much closer to Venice (about 5 minutes lol) so I'll have to check out Blue Star this weekend - I've also wanted to go to the Aesop store on AK though they are opening one in Santa Monica place soon! 

 

Awe for free donuts! wish I would have known LOL

Re: Empties

They seem to be opening a lot of new shops in Santa Monica and on AK! I'll have to make a trip out to the Westside next weekend.

Re: Empties

OMG if this really works that would be amazing.

Re: Empties

Omg I SO hope you're right! I need to look into this.
