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

I'm an on-again off-again saver.  Currently in "on" mode because I started feeling guilty regarding my intake vs. outtake ratio.  Like many others keeping my empties is a good motivator to use what I have.  I just keep a box around to throw things in when they're done.  It's not much different from throwing them in trash or recycling.  My problem is always figuring out where to keep the stupid box!

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.
