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

Wow!  Did you gain any new loves along your journey through these?

Re: Empties

Loves/Repurchases:

  • GlamGlow Brightmud eye treatment
  • Sephora Collection paper masks
  • Sephora Collection lip balm
  • YSL Touche Eclat
  • YuBe lotion
  • Anastasia waterproof mascara topcoat
  • Burt's Bees sensitive makeup remover wipes
  • Sephora Collection waterproof makeup remover
  • Wet 'n' Wild waterproof mascara (although now I only get mascara samples)
  • YSL, Bobbi Brown, and Marc Jacobs mascara samples that I always get more samples of when I can.

 

Hates:

  • Philosophy Take a Deep Breath and Hope in a Jar Night creams. The jar packaging is awful.
  • Gorgeous Cosmetics lipstick. Both tubes went moldy after fewer than 6 months of use, a first time I've ever had lipstick go bad before it's at least a few years old.
  • Josie Maran Argan Black Oil mascara. Tammy Faye—level clumps and the formula was hard to remove even with waterproof cleanser.
  • L'occitane Immortelle Precious Cream. It made my skin burn and I had to wipe it off after a few seconds.
  • Milani baked eyeshadow. Bloggers kept raving about Milani, which I'd always dismissed as a cheap drugstore brand. I should have stayed strong, instead I ended up with a glitter bomb eyeshadow that had no color payoff.

Re: Empties

Aren't the Burt's Bees wipes the best? I like the white package and the green too (cucumber and sage-soothing). Much better than more expensive alternatives I've tried!

 

Impressive collection of empties. I love looking at it but my husband would kill me if I left all that trash inside Smiley Tongue 

Re: Empties

You had me at Tammy Faye!

Re: Empties

wow!! O.o great job!

Re: Empties

Ha, thanks!

Re: Empties

Holy used collection, Batman!  Seeing all of this stuff together is awesome.  I bet it felt amazing to know all of that stuff went to good use.

Re: Empties

It was crazy to pull it all out of its bag. I already have quite a few items for January 2015, and I'm excited that not all of them are samples.

Re: Empties

Wow! I am impressed. I honestly can't remember the last time I finished a full size item and you have plenty of those in addition to samples.

Re: Empties

A lot of the full-size stuff took me more than a year to finish, and some I gave up on halfway. But I really tried to make myself use things up this past year and to weed out unused and unwanted things. That way I could break into my newest pretties. Smiley Happy

Re: Empties

Is it weird that I'm already excited for sharing my empties at the end of this month.  Should be a good one as I pushed myself to use the dregs of a few products that had been kicking around in my bathroom for awhile and also brought a few samples on my trip to Italy.

Re: Empties

I finished a huge SK II moisturizer and may finish another full size or even two of skin are, I can't believe it and so excited, so I hear you 100%!

Re: Empties

That's awesome sister13!  The huge products are always the most satisfying.

Re: Empties

I'm kind of disappointed in myself this month. I have exactly 4 empties, 2 of which are samples /.\

Re: Empties

Month's not over yet!  Still time to try a couple of samples.

Re: Empties

I've been stockpiling my empties for the first time so I'm excited too. It's something I can laugh at myself for for being ridiculous but still have fun with, if that makes sense. Also I feel very accomplished, which was an unexpected side effect. 

Re: Empties

I feel like this is carrying over to other aspects of my life.  For a second I got excited that I almost had an empty jar of pickles.  Then I remember I have no where to share it.

Re: Empties

hey! we like pickles too Smiley Tongue its actually funny that you said that because my mom was teasing me that she was going to do an empties video with my recycling! 

Re: Empties

That's amazing Sparklekai.  And notcreative, not sure if that was directed at me but totally serious.  ;-)

Re: Empties

I say share it when you've finished it if you're serious.  I'd love to see the empty jar of pickles.  Although I love pickles, I have never finished a jar.  In the past, I always said I would use an empty pickle jar as a coin jar, but I always throw it out half full.  My husband and kids hate pickles, so I am always on my own eating them.  One day!

 

Put all your empty cosmetics in the empty pickle jar, then, it is even on topic!

Re: Empties

Hahahaha I love it Notcreative.  :-)
