Re: Empties - 2019

My empties bag was overflowing so time to toss these out and start anew. 

 

The favorites which have been or definitely will be repurchased:

I adore all of these items. The Elizavecca Milky Piggy BB cream is my go-to for lighter coverage. It wears well and blends seamlessly. I'm also a big fan of the Dr. Jart BB for my skin as well. Both the OH sugar polish mask and the PTR pumpkin masks are things that are almost always in my stash. Both are just great for adding a touch of physical exfoliation to my masking experience. The Becca Backlight primer is my absolute favorite. It doesn't dry me out but helps my foundation stay put. On long days, I know I can add in the UD All-Nighter spray for extra insurance and am rarely disappointed. Lancome, of course, makes an amazing eye makeup remover and I just love both the OH sheer transformation moisturizer, the Belif moisturizers, and the CosRx lotion. I was also very pleasantly surprised by the Herbal Essences shampoo! I used to use HE back in high school but have moved on to other things over the years; however,this just left my hair so soft and manageable that I might have to go back to it! 

The Mehs/Just Ok bunch

All of these were "ok" but not "wow." Others may love them, I just have other products that I've found to work better for me now. I did really like the Belif toner though, so possibly something I may eventually try again. And that TF mascara is an amazing formula if you can get past the comically large brush. 

The I will *not* be (re)purchasing group:

Mostly due to scents. It took effort to finish all of these products up (except the foil, LOL).

And the items that had to be de-stashed because they didn't work for me AT ALL

Unfortunately, the Erborian was far too dark for me, even in the light shade. The L'Occitane broke me out. The Vichy was too heavy for my oily-normal skin. And the Unwash was one of the worst things I've ever put into my hair honestly. It just left it so stringy and a hot mess truth be told. 

Re: Empties - 2019

How does the color of this Dr. Jart compare to the DR. JART+ - Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 @quspork? I really liked the formula but it was too pink and dark for me. I was interested in the Eborian, but hearing the light shade is dark, I will probably need to find something else to try instead.

Re: Empties - 2019

I've found the shades between those two Dr. Jart BBs to be very similar, @ShortErica. Both were wearable for me, so definitely within the same color family. Note- I'm pretty fair, mostly neutral/slight pink undertones. So, if the premium was too pink for you, I'd be concerned the Black Label would be as well. But, it might be worth trying to get a sample of the Erborian because I think my main problem with that was that yellow undertones read "dark" on me. 

Re: Empties - 2019

I find lots of small shade products have a "light" that is too yellow for me too @quspork. I think my skin falls fairly neutral so products that pull one way or another look off on my skin. I may still have to get a sample of the eborian to see how the shade is on me. Thanks for your feedback.

I just wore the Dr jart bb cream today @quspork I do love...

I just wore the Dr jart bb cream today @quspork I do love it! just keep forgetting about it

Empties - 2019

my empties of love are briogeo...I love this brand! actually better than devacurl sad to say! I'm probably going to repurchase a full size of the tatcha essence, Rodan and Fields lash boost is flipping expensive, but I rotate lash serums, so I usually only purchase once a year maybe twice, but this is the one that started my lash growing process, so it will be repurchased. the pore strips were a no go, the tonymoly and Ace that face were just meh

Re: Empties - 2019

I absolutely love the Tatcha essence!

Re: Empties - 2019

@lmaster Did you pick up that tony moly mask online? I haven't seen it in stores but I do like I'm real as far as value goes. Sorry if i missed a review of it on the mask thread!

Re: Empties - 2019

@CC3616 I did order it online, I think from Ulta, yeah I do like most of these, but this one didn't wow me much at all 🤷

Re: Empties - 2019

@lmaster Love seeing all of your mask empties Smiley Happy

 

Best,

Rebecca

Re: Empties - 2019

@RebeccaBT thank you 💞 some weeks are definitely busier than others 😉

Re: Empties - 2019

@lmaster, I love Briogeo, especially their hair mask! ♥️ Your lashes are seriously AMAZING!! 🤩🥰👌🏼 What lash serums do you use on rotation in addition to the Rodan and Fields? I’ve only used the GrandeLash MD and love it, but the idea of rotating lash serums sounds really interesting to me. 

Re: Empties - 2019

@lmaster When you say you rotate the eyelash serums do you mean like every other day or switch when a tube runs out?

Re: Empties - 2019

@faeriegirl I'll use one for 3 months then use a different one the next 3

Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you @lmaster!❤️

Re: Empties - 2019

@faeriegirl tbh the lash boost is the best one, but it's 150$ so that's why I rotate, but the Grande lash is pretty good too, not so sure about the neuLash I just started using...I honestly feel like my lashes are getting shorter with this one, but it could just be me 🤷

Re: Empties - 2019

@lmaster I just started using the grande lash so I’m hoping it will help. If not there is a R&F rep where I work. Hopefully the neulash will start working better for you for the price it should! Why does having eyelashes have to be so darn expensive🤦‍♀️ I never had a problem until about 2 years ago.

Re: Empties - 2019

@faeriegirl I'm probably going to go back to lash boost mid April and see. I'll more than likely just switch between the grande and LB because I really don't feel like the neuLash is doing anything, not even maintaining. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you @itsfi 😘

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi I was only rotating between lash boost and grande lash but I just purchased neuLash serum from Nordstrom to see how it compares lol
