Empties - 2019
Re: Empties - 2019
June empties, except for sheet masks which I'll post another day.
GRANDE COSMETICS - GrandeLASH™ - MD Lash Enhancing Serum is amazing! I love this stuff and have repurchased several times, in different sizes, for myself and to gift. I haven't been using it regularly this year but that'll change starting tomorrow. I picked up a mini tube of it and am planning on applying it every night for the entire month of July.
BELIF - Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser - I have a full size of this jelly cleanser; it's great for a second cleanse - cleans skin without stripping it or making it feel dry or tight.
MAC Viva Glam V lipstick - love this lippie color; it's a staple in my makeup collection. I've gone through and repurchased this one more times than I can count.
OUAI - Rose Hair & Body Oilis a nicely scented oil that works really well as a detangler, softener and moisturizer.
Ausomme Rehydrating Double Mist - this saved my skin this winter, during the winter-spring transition, and through many flights and time spent in heavily air-conditioned conference and meeting rooms.
Maybes (Good but not standout):
NARS - Lipstick - Orgasm- not bad; a good color for the warmer months, but I just prefer the gloss version.
PETER THOMAS ROTH - Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Atomic Heat Mask - results are nice, but it's too tedious a process to get the product to heat up as advertised. I would use it if I had it or were given it, but I'm not sure I'd go out of my way to purchase a full size.
Okay / Meh:
Sephora Collection Rose Sleeping Mask is great for traveling, does a decent job of sealing in moisture; can double as a moisturizer as well as an overnight mask.
RAHUA - Omega 9 Hair Maskhas grown on me but doesn't rise to the level of a favorite. It does a pretty good job of detangling my hair and leaving it soft.
Except for products that caused me to break out or otherwise irritate my skin, I've not tossed anything before finishing it this year, or even last year. That is, until the W7 Lemon Meringe Anti Redness Eyelid Primer. This was too yellow, too thick, too pasty, too .... too much of a bad fit for my eyelids (or for anything I could repurpose it for). I hoped this might be a dupe for discontinued Benefit Lemon Aid Color Correcting Eyelid Primer. It is not.
All in all, for the first half of the year, I went through 106 items (full and deluxe sizes and foils, non-sheet masks) - 38 full size products, 35 deluxe samples and 33 foil samples. The 106 empties consisted of 69 skincare items; 9 body care products; 16 hair care items; 5 makeup products; 3 fragrances and 4 that fit in the other category which was probably home goods of some sort (i.e., diffusers, etc.). Not surprisingly the bulk of the products I went through were skincare items, making up 65% of my total empties.
