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

Loves

 

alterna shampoo and conditioner

sephora perfection mist airbrush foundation

vichy capital soleil sunscreen (this is my favourite full body sunscreen)

shiseido ultimate sun protection cream. - nice for the face but leaves a white cast 

lemon strip flash peel-  I loved this!  I still have multiple peels to go through but it's being considered for purchase

sugar lip balm- I have tons of these.  

Mac cremesheenboy bait- super awesome buttery and a staple colour

l'oreal telescopic lash mascara- I really enjoyed this tube.  I probably won't repurchase but it was a decent mascara for the money. image.jpg

Re: Empties

Loving your empties! 

I really want to try Alterna shampoos/cond.

I also looooove lemon peel! It's magic in a little pot!

Re: Empties

You must have skin strong like bull, I was too wussy for Lemon Strip.

Re: Empties

I think I have high pain tolerance because my girlfriend freaked out when we did a spa night together and ran and took it off.  It burns for a minute and then I numb right up.  I'm not sure if it's supposed to do that but I love the results!  Super soft skin! 

Re: Empties

my skin yelled at me for days with the lemon strip!

Re: Empties

Too bad about the Shiseido. I'm pretty pale, so I actually like that the white cast evens out my redness a bit. And I'm intrigued by the lemon strip flash peel.

Re: Empties

It looks as though you should try a sample first judging by the consensus.  Maybe I sorta like pain. 

Re: Empties

Haha, thanks for the warning. Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

I've had the same issue with the Shiseido sunscreen ...

Re: Empties

Which means it's good at its job, sigh.  I think I'll stick to MDSolarSciences tinted sunscreen and the ptr moisturizing sunscreen.  Both are awesome. 

Re: Empties

Have you ever worn the MDSolarSciences spf 50 sunscreen (the regular in the pink bottle, not the tinted) under makeup? I am planning on purchasing it to wear under my foundation.

Re: Empties

I had fourteen samples of that one!  Once you put foundation on over top you're covering up the white anyways.  I didnt ever have any problems with flashback even.  I like their stuff. 

Re: Empties

Knuevekm, I use and love this one, but it does leave a white cast. I'm very fair, so it doesn't mess with my complexion much. And I do find the white cast fades within 20 minutes or so. 

Re: Empties

Thank you! The other one I was looking at is the algenist one but it's almost half the amount of product for practically the same price.

Re: Empties

The Sheseido sunscreen leaves a white cast on me as well.  What Ojon item is that?  The Dry shampoo smells so badly I am having a hard time getting through it.  Yours looks like a mini of that.

Re: Empties

It is the dry shampoo. I didn't even get two uses out of it before it clogged up and died on me.  I tried soaking the lid in warm water and nothing wants to come out even though it feels full still.  It's gone.  I'm not fighting with it anymore.  I have a shiseido dry shampoo I picked up in Japan I love more anyways.

LOVE:

* Wet 'n' Wild Mega Length mascara. It's $3; you can't beat it.

* Tatcha Radiant serum. I received this in a trade and I hate that I like it. It's so expensive! But it makes my skin so soft.

 

HATE:

* Marc Jacobs Highliners. These have a special place of hate in my heart. I bought the full-sized ones in the summer and fall of 2015 and the minis were from the 2015 holiday set. The holiday set had been recalled for drying out, but I bought the supposedly revamped ones. Except that I've found that all of my Highliners have dried out. You need to snap off a good chunk of dried-out liner to get to useable product. It's such a waste—both of product and of my money.

*Farmacy Eye Dew. I suddenly developed an allergy to this. And I never really loved it. If I hadn't become allergic, I would have used it up, but not bought it again.

LOVE:

* Kiehl's Midnight Recovery oil. I really liked how this absorbed and my skin just felt healthier after using it. I want to use up some other stuff first, but I'd definitely consider repurchasing.

* Besame violet powder. It only took me 1.5 years, but I used up a thing! I really liked the brightening effect and will repurchase when I use up my Laura Mercier powder (and I'll be transferring that powder to this container, because the LM one broke).

 

HATE:

* Josie Maran argan oil. I never got a chance to use this. It was part of an oil set Sephora sold and I kept the bottle in the set's packaging until I used it. Except that the rubber part of the dropper snapped off before I ever touched it. Luckily, I stored it standing upward, so oil didn't leak all over. What a disappointment. 

* Korean serum. I can't find English on the bottle and I don't have the original box anymore, so I don't have the actual name. Isn't this bottle beautiful? Unfortunately, the gold flakes are too chunky and scratch my skin.

Mask-a-palooza! Everything here ranged from OK to pretty good.

Re: Empties

I have 3 products from that Korean brand with the pretty bottle. The brand is called Missha. Sadly I got the products from Marshalls/TJmaxx and I don't like them. I feel like they do nothing but the packaging is so pretty! Definitely won't be buying any more Missha.

Re: Empties

@gxlxaxm Thanks for the brand name! I'll keep that in mind.

Re: Empties

I'm always impressed with how many masks you use.  I always think I'm using sheet masks regularly, but never come close.  That one with the cupcake on it looks especially intriguing.

 

Also, it's definitely NOT just you with that Josie Maran oil, I had the exact same problem.  It was so annoying!  I also have a couple of highliners I haven't used in quite awhile.  (They are more unique colors so I don't reach for them often.)  Afraid to try it because, like yours mine is probably dried up.  It's a shame because I've really liked a lot of other Marc Jacobs cosmetic items but they seem so problematic.

 

I also hear you on Tatcha products.  I have a couple of serums from the sets I bought with the gilt city deal but haven't tried yet.  But the creams I've tried are amazing.  They work so well with my skin and are the only think I've tried with the CoverFX drops that actually give my skin a dewy look.  The more I try the more I have a feeling I'll fall in love.  Except with the exfoliating powders.  It's hard to tell if they are doing much for my skin.

Re: Empties

I try to use one mask a week, and I think I used more this time because I was testing out some new masks from the Ulta B2G1 mask sale. The cupcake mask looks fun, but it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I might repurchase to make a shipping threshold, but probably wouldn't otherwise. And I used up a bunch of those Shiseido eye masks because I was trying to see if I'd get better results with more consistent use—but then forgot to use them consistently, womp womp.

 

I treated myself to some UD liners in my most favorite Highligner colors to make up for the loss. I used to hate liners that need sharpening, but since I don't wear liner every day, let alone the same one, I rarely have to sharpen them anyway. And I know the UD ones will last forever.

 

I got a mini Tatcha facial mist in a trade and it was amazing. The full size costs something outrageous, but I really want it.
