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

Great empties and impressed you have the strength to throw away things that aren't working.  I'm bad about hanging onto things even when I know I won't use them.

Re: Empties

First time posting on empties...I am at work so notmuch time to write- ask if you have any questions.

 

This is my daughter and I in March...

 

Re: Empties

Great empties.  And I love that like me, you also cut the tops off to get every last little bit out!

Re: Empties

@kelloua  I always cut them off after seeing someone else on here doing that.  Theres so much product left inside!

Re: Empties

I have been on a mission to use up things and yesterday I purged all my foils, ds, and random gwp items I'll never use. I gave the items I won't use to my friends daughter and she was so happy so win win. I had many loves this month!

Loves. Already staple items or have repurchased.

Likes. The products were ok but there are better things out there so these won't be purchased.

Didnt like at all. Boo. 

Re: Empties

I need to get better about purging things I know I'll never use.  I don't know why that's such a struggle for me, but thankfully with TSB's I've been good about passing on things I think others might like that I know I won't use.

Re: Empties

Great job. I adore your liner. It is striking. 

Re: Empties

I actually went through more than I expected in April. Some of my favorites:

Loved the Becca color corrector so I bought the full size, Wen is a staple for me. I have at least 5 other SC body butters. Dr Jart micro water is pretty awesome. Kat Von D wipes work well.

 

Re: Empties

I still love Wen, too. I have not used it exclusively in a while though. 

Re: Empties

Great empties!  It does look like you went through a lot.  Kudos. 

Re: Empties

I finally finished quite a few products this month which considering how stressful my life has been this past month, I'm happy about. I cut down my makeup stash significantly this month and am planning to down size again in the next few months so a lot more of my empties are products that I actually enjoy and will buy again. That being said; I still had some products that I finished up that weren't all that great.

Re: Empties

Nice!  looks like you made some great progress and that's smart to size down.  I'm impressed that you used up a whole liquid lipstick and that supergoop setting mist.  I'm still working on both.  @KellW How did you find the MUFE Hydrating Primer?  Is it truly hydrating.  I'm almost done with my full sized primers and have been thinking about what I might try next and a hydrating primer seems like it would be a good bet for fall/winter when my skin is pretty parched.

Re: Empties

@kelloua I'm not sure how I felt about the hydrating primer. It didn't irritate my skin, didn't make my skin feel greasy or overly matte, but it didn't do anything to increase my wear time for my foundation. My skin is normal but I use a heavy moisturizer before putting on any primer which probably decreases how hydrating it feels to me. So if you don't use a heavy moisturizer, then it might be a good fit for a fall/winter primer.

 

Also, I bought both the liquid lipstick and the setting mist last summer (over a year ago now) which is probably why I've managed to get through both of them. But thanks! I hope this helped.

Re: Empties

Re: Empties

I love the Nivea in shower body lotion too! Received a sample in an Amazon beauty box and had to order two full size bottles! It's funny...I don't like the scent when I'm in the shower but my skin feels so silky smooth and hydrated when I dry off and love the scent when I'm dry. Lol

Re: Empties

i like it for mornings when i'm in a rush...but i like it even more that it makes my 12 year old actually put something hydrating on his skin!!

Re: Empties

Wow! You finished a lot for June. I'm impressed!

Re: Empties

Love the pile shot. :-)  Sorry to hear you didn't like the bay breeze shots.  Those are among my favorite for moisturizing my hair.  Maybe different types of hair react differently.

Re: Empties

Loves: Have or will repurchase

 

Likes: They did the job would like to try more of the sample

 

Okay: Did the job but not completely impressed

Re: Empties

Looks like you used up a lot of samples.  I have similar feelings about that L'Occtitane hand cream.  It's fine but I definitely prefer Caudalie.

Re: Empties

@kelloua I've been trying to use up more of my samples specially foils unless I know I already love that product.

I've tried Cuadalie as well and the scent wasn't as bad

Re: Empties

Super happy to have finished some FS things this month! The Soap & Glory cleanser in particular, I have been working on for AGES, and I am super glad I can now concentrate on eliminating my DS cleanser stash.

 

Loves: Have or Would Repurchase:

 

 

Ok: would use up for discount/free, but not pay full price

 

 

 

Nope: Never again. Some of these I couldn't even finish.

 

Spoiler
Cake lip balm - too greasy
Skyn eye patches - not hydrating
LaNiege hydrogel mask - ditto. Hydrogels are not for me.
Sephora night cream - broke me out
Origins Night-a-mins oil - liked it as an oil, but it pilled up with EVERY moisturizer I tried over it.
Murad eye treatment - did nothing, dried out my eyes and exaggerated fine lines when used as directed (with dry cotton eye patches, not shown cus I stopped using them)
Smashbox X-Rated mascara - I can't stand mascara applicators that don't have bristles all the way around. This only has 3 or 4 "wings", which, ugh.
Seraphina Carrot & Rose Hydrating Cream - waaaay too greasy. Advertised as face or body, but I cannot imagine using it on my face.
Estee Lauder night eye treatment - no results
OH Eye Cream, SPF 15 - burned my eyes
Caudalie Chamomile toner - too fragranced
COTZ face sunscreen, tinted - "lightly" tinted on their default person = bronzer strength on me.
l'Occitane Lemon Verbena Shower Gel - too drying
Vine Vera day cream - ok cream, weird scammy brand.
Tony Moly Skin Food Pore Foam - this is the product I mistook for a mask, when it is actually a cleanser. Doh. I can tell you, it does NOT work as a mask.

Re: Empties

@JazaChai Great empties! What shade is the NARS?

Re: Empties

Love all the empties!  What was the powder?
