Empties - 2019

Re: Empties - 2019

So nice to have all loves in a week and look at all those sheet masks! Great empties, @lmaster! Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

That you so much @itsfi 😍

Last of June empties:

I've switched from the Aveda to Sachajuan and my hair has responded well. Took awhile to use these up, won't be repurchasing but might be an option for my daughter as she gets older. Absolutely love the consistency and herbal scent of the La Mer, probably my favorite product of theirs. Of course I am not going to repurchase, but a girl can dream Smiley Happy Love the Lavanila but trying some other brands for kicks. The Andalou, meh. The best part about it is the natural ingredients.

This was a very slow week for masks. The Frudia has a floor cleaner scent, it was not pleasant, although it fit quite well. Both WF masks were awesome and repurchases. The Sephora Coconut rubberizing mask has an amazing coconut scent, wasn't the best; it cracked and didn't peel all that well. The Hey, lo mask is the second I've tried from this company and love love love. Sweet tomatoes, it smelled delicious! Fit great and gave my skin some serious love. Need to try the broccoli one next.

Re: Empties - 2019

Good to know about the Andalou @eshoe ! I see it pop up at my local winners often and the ingredients are appealing, but I’m hesitant to pick something up if I can’t return it once opened (bless you Sephora return policy)

Re: Empties - 2019

Don’t buy it @cianni. Lots of other beautiful rose masks out there🌹!

Re: Empties - 2019

June empties! Still trucking through my stash! I was hoping to hit 100 finished items by halfway through the year (I don’t include sheet masks or foils because I can’t be bothered to save them), but unfortunately I missed the mark and am at 84 at the halfway mark. I’m still pretty impressed though, and looking forward to a big July ☺️D8F2114B-A1FC-417D-AA31-57EE49287D29.jpeg

FAB face cleanser - would not repurchase. I wanted to love this because I’m always looking for a mild cleanser for my sensitive skin, and have had great luck with other FAB products. This made my skin feel dry/tight.

Laneige eye sleeping mask - would repurchase. I have a dry under eye area sometimes as a result of using prescription topicals. This has helped keep my undereye area hydrated, even in the dry winter. A little goes a LONG way, and a bottle will last for a long time. I would advise against using it more than twice a week because it is a little heavy for everyday use

ELF concealer - Not the worst formula, but it did oxidize a bit. I think this product has been discontinued but I would try an ELF concealer again. It was lighter coverage that worked well for spots, or on no/light makeup days.

 

Laura mercier caviar eye stick in Amethyst - This was part of my pan. I didn’t love the product already because it was more grey than purple, and it creased terribly. The product wasn’t stable in the component (was too soft) and eventually fell out into a sink, so the last 1/4 of the product was unusable. Wouldn’t rebuy.

 

Guerlain l’essentiel natural glow foundation DS - LOVE this foundation. It’s a light to medium coverage that is buildable. Feels nice on and doesn’t get cakey. The finish is beautiful, not too matte and not too dewy or satin. Great staying power and I didn’t have transfer issues.

 

Tarte rainforest of the sea 4-in1 setting mist - Would not rebuy. I didn’t find that it did a great job at setting my makeup and didn’t help with oil. I didn’t care for the scent either.

 

Hawaiian tropic lip balm - Just happy to have finished a chapstick before I lost it LOL. I would repurchase once I go through more of my stash. Love that it has spf and that classic Hawaiian tropic vacation scent.

 

Too faced mascara melt off mini - This is an HG product for me, and I’ve gone through many minis and full sized. I would only rebuy FS because the mini has 0.5ml versus 8ml in FS.

 

Drunk elephant c-tango multivitamin eye cream - would not rebuy. This gave me horrible milia under the eye, so I ended up using it on the rest of my face. I did like it as a Vit C serum for my face but it’s excessive to buy an expensive eye cream for use on the whole face.

 

First aid beauty barri-air cream - Great product but terrible packaging. Would only rebuy if the packaging was changed to be airtight to prevent foaming. My face felt hydrated, and I had the impression that it was retaining moisture better compared to other creams which I feel so more for moisturizing but less for hydrating (if that makes sense??)

 

Batiste rose gold edition dry shampoo - HG product. Smelled kind of like maraschino cherries, which I like. It didn’t have a rose gold color or anything. I believe this is LE, but pops up at winners/TJs often. I would repurchase

 

Bath and body works aromatherapy stress relief sugar scrub - fantastic product. Smelled like eucalyptus and was amazing in the shower. It didn’t irritate my sensitive skin and made it SO soft. I mainly used this on my legs prior to getting them waxed and I’ve found less in-grown hairs as a result of proper exfoliation. I would repurchase because I have a hard time finding scrubs that aren’t too abrasive

Re: Empties - 2019

Lots of empties this month @cianni! Nice work! Smiley Happy 

Re: Empties - 2019

I find the Too Faced Melt Off Cleansing Oil to be such an underrated product. I put it on my lashes for a few seconds and then follow up with my DE Slaai cleanser on top and my mascara comes off seamlessly. <333

Re: Empties - 2019

This is the 2nd time I’ve read good things about the TF melt off on BIC. I think I need to check it out. 84 empties is phenomenal @cianni!

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica @PenelopeBT it is SO underrated. I feel like it’s overlooked because it may not be the most “necessary” product, but honestly I can’t live without it now. I use it for all kinds of mascara (even non waterproof), and I find i don’t have to tug at my lashes to get all the product off, and my lashes are so happy about that 😂

Re: Empties - 2019

@cianni 84 empties is amazing! Great job!

 

Best,
Rebecca

Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you! @RebeccaBT it’s so satisfying finishing a bunch of stuff because now I have room for all the newer releases 😂

Re: Empties - 2019

@MoniDJ, your empties are sooooo nice. I feel like I could be happy making up a shopping list based on your empties! Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

Oh my goodness so many empties!! What a fantastic job 😍😍 @MoniDJ 

RE: Empties - 2019

These are my empties during half of April, the whole May and June. Most of these are likes or loves except for

May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon: I hate everything about it. I just don’t have the heart to throw away an expensive skincare item so it takes me a bit more than 2 yrs to finish.

Eve Lom Cleanser: meh.

Too Faced Peach Primer: okay this one is weird. I love love the sample. I finish 2 of them and decide to get the full size. It gets really angry if my skincare includes vitamin C. Everything peels and peels 😞

YSL foundation: oh boy good thing this is a sample. It’s cakey big time.

Tula Cleanser: I dont know where i got this from.  It does the job (i think) but it the scent reminds me of something from a dollar store lol.

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

@blackkitty2014 

Ah yes, the Tula cleanser is freaking fantastic, but that scent takes some getting used to. I thought I was going to hate it when I first sniffed it, but it turned out the cleanser was so nice that I got used to the smell 🤪

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

@RGbrown Tula really does the job but i really really wish there is no scent.  It reminds me of Sisley deluxe sample i get sometime ago.  The cream or whatever it is is nice but it is heavily scent liked i just spilled the whole bottle of perfume in the jar ... giving me a headache Smiley Wink (and i normally dont mind the scent)

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

A finished laneige lip sleeping mask! You deserve an award @blackkitty2014 🏆
