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

Ugh, I dread the day I use up all my Incandescent light! I only use Dim occasionally, and haven't found a good use for Radiant at all, so it really doesn't make sense to repurchase the whole thing. Knuevekm, if you find a dupe, please share!

Re: Empties

I use radiant over a matte blush or over my bronzer Smiley Happy If I'm going more natural instead of bronzer ill use radiant for a little bit of warmth

Re: Empties

Incandescent light is my absolute favorite too.  I was very close to hitting pan so I started switching to Dim light.  Now I'm very close to hitting pan on both of those although I have quite a bit of radiant light left.  Trying to decide what to do next because I'd rather have a single shade than this palette since I barely use radiant light and have SO many deluxe samples of bronzers, but incandescent was my favorite.  May need to explore some of the other shades as I feel like dim light just reads a little peachy on my face.  But love everything else about this powder.  It makes my skin look so luminous, vs. flat like other powders and isn't itchy like a lot of powders I've tried.

Re: Empties

I use dim light occasionally too. It will be the next to go. Dim light is just a little bit too dark so I use it only on my cheeks when I want to look like I have a hint of sun. radiant light is probably never going to get used because if I am going to use a bronzer I usually don't want it to be shimmery.

I am hoping that Hourglass will come out with incandescent light as a single. I will be waiting...

Re: Empties

I think you're right.  I've been noticing my face has been looking a little too dark, not dramatically so but still noticeably and I think it's the dim light.  Intrigued by ethereal and diffused but wish they had something that leaned more neutral than cool or warm.  For some reason I thought at some point they were releasing incandescent as an exclusive single shade.

Re: Empties

I keep forgetting to copy the products I've written out before I fill in my reviews. My reviews are too long to post here, but let me know if you're curious on anything.

Re: Empties

Would you say the Ole wipes are worth buying? They're the makeup remover ones right?

Re: Empties

Yes, they are the makeup removers and totally worth buying. I will copy and paste my review for you:

 

Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Makeup Removing Wipes smell divine. I actually have not tried an Ole Henriksen product yet that I did not want to eat. Why do they all smell so good! I can still smell it on my face after following up with a cleansing water. The ingredients not only smell great, but they feel great. My skin always feel refreshed after using this. Some cheap wipes do not smell great or leave my skin feeling great. Expensive ones have let me down as well.

 

This removes all of my makeup with ease. I do not fully wash my face at night to prevent my dry skin from retaliating. After removing my makeup with a wipe, I cleanse with a Micellar water. My cotton round containing the cleansing water almost always comes out completely clean after removing makeup with this. With some other wipes, I need either a second wipe or multiple cotton rounds of cleansing water to finish the job. The cloth is large, moist, and durable. That prevents it from shredding as I wipe.

 

One wipe to remove the makeup and one cotton round of cleansing water does the trick 98% of the time. Although I love Protect the Truth wipes more, these are almost as amazing and worth FabuFind status. It is completely possible these are more efficient at removing makeup than Protect the Truth, but I still prefer those thanks to the smell, wonderful ingredients for my skin, and fact that they cleanse almost as well.

Re: Empties

Thank you! I was unsure if to buy or not.

Re: Empties

You're welcome. I should add that I never use a wipe on my eyes, so I cannot attest to how it does there. For my eyes I use BiFacial and a cotton round.

Re: Empties

Thanks for that too. I don't use any foundation or any face makeup so I mostly use eye makeup remover. I want wipes for when I get home late from college to remove my mascara. Usually all I want to do is clim into my bed right away lol

Re: Empties

It's a good thing I clarified then. I've never used a single wipe on my eyes. Hopefully, someone who has can let you know how well it works or offer other suggestions if they've never tried this one.

Re: Empties

Yeah hopefully! I still know more about these wipes than I did before 

Re: Empties

Nice set of empties! Out of curiousity, there are three bottles in the first image, located in the upper right, that are clear with green labels. What are those? At first glance, they look like alterna haircare products from teh bamboo line, but after a second hard look, I'm not sure.

Re: Empties

Those bottles are a lotion, shampoo, and conditioner by Bath & Body Works rain kissed leaves courtesy of Legoland Hotel. The smell is wonderful, not overpowering like most B & BW scents. Thankfully, it smelled nothing like rain kissed leaves either, which does not make me think of a pleasant smell. It was light, but clean smelling. The lotion is a little thin, but it does moisturize. I love it but would not use it in the winter. The shampoo and conditioner were okay. They did not smell as good as the lotion (the same but a little more muted). My frizzy hair needs a stronger formula, so I would use them again. No way I would purchase them though.

Re: Empties

Wow, hotels have been stepping up their game! Smiley Surprised

Re: Empties

Certain hotels are still in the dark ages, but some have nice amenities. 

Re: Empties

Clearly I travel at the same hotels because I never see anything interesting or different in terms of toiletries selections.  I swear though I've never gone to a hotel where the cream was potent enough for my dry skin.  I always have to bring my own.  Thank god for foils in those instances.

Re: Empties

Depends on the hotel. The Rituals lotion from the Radisson (top left) was thin (like all hotel lotions). It did moisturize decently well though. 

 

We almost always revert to staying at the Hilton or the Sheraton, but I am over Shine and PTR (they small manly) lotions at those hotels. The Shine shampoo and conditioners are terrible, too. My husband stayed at Fontainebleau Miami recently. They had Molton Brown (top middle) products. They're not an outsourced watered down hotel version either. He was impressed that they had the real deal.

 

I always pack body lotions when I travel, too. Even when they are moisturizing enough, they're never big enough (except the Cosomopolitan). They used to give huge lotions, but I have not stayed there in a few years. I heard they switched from C.O. Bigelow to something else.

Re: Empties

I don't know that I've ever had a shampoo or conditioner at a hotel I loved though I do remember back in the day being really excited when I discovered Bliss via staying at the W.

Re: Empties

Yes, I've used Bliss products from the W, but I am not sure if they're full strength Bliss or the standard watered down version most retailers sell hotel chains.
