Re: Empties - 2019

This is my first time posting on this thread and I am so excited -  I love this thread, but it's hard for me to commit and finish a product since I am always buying more, getting gwp, samples...

 

I finally finished a few products this month and I'm ready to make my debut here (a bit dramatic I know).

 

IMG_4808.jpgIMG_5205.jpg

Love:

-DE C Tango eye cream - Really great and my friend @MlleCC   kindly gave me a new travel size, so I don't have to purchase a full size just yet! ❤️

-Sisley Double Tenseur primer - I had 5 or 6 uses out of that tiny sample and that primer is awesome. Worth $192? Of course not lol.

 

Like:

-Sol de Janeiro shower gel is good, but I no longer love the scent.

-Tidal - Felt lightweight and pleasant on the skin, but I wasn't a fan of the scent. I would happily use more samples of this, but wouldn't purchase a full size.

 

Meh:

-On the rocks clarifying charcoal shampoo. I tend to wash my hair once or twice a week and I am not stranger to dry shampoo. Based on my experience with clarifying shampoos this was more drying than necessary at that price point.

-Belif Jelly cleanser. It works and it's non drying (I even took it on a trip to Las Vegas and my skin did not feel dry after using it). My complaint with this product is the overpowering scent, it smells of fresh scented cleaning products with green skittles. I had to hold my breath as I massaged the product into the skin. (I received this free through influenster). There are many great cleansers at that price point without added fragrance or with a milder more pleasant scent.

Re: Empties - 2019

@RebeccaBT I am glad to hear - thank you ❤️

RE: Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks for your reviews @Cyncynn I also can OD on yummy scents, like that body wash.

Re: RE: Re: Empties - 2019

@Weetart Yes, maybe I should revisit the scent in October lol

I really like the Sisley too @Cyncynn I don't need it tha...

@lmaster right? I was thinking about it and wondering at what price point I would actually bite the bullet and purchase.

$100 was my number, but that would still leave my wallet screaming and tears rolling down my face lol

Re: Empties - 2019

@Cyncynn I haven't had one of the SDJ body washes in a while.  I feel like I really enjoyed in the winter when it would make me think of beaches!

Re: Empties - 2019

@missjeanie You're on to something! I think that's the sort of scent that I would appreciate a lot more during the colder months of the year.

De stashed some items- dried out nail polish and mascara and some old lippie that need to go!De stashed some items- dried out nail polish and mascara and some old lippie that need to go!

@jen81 That patchology was surprisingly the star of my Mother's day Glossybox. Both my mother and I love it. 

Re: Empties - 2019

@MSena yes! It’s a great eye mask! I like the lippie from that box too, very moisturizing.

Re: Empties - 2019

Hi @jen81 ,

 

Finding dried out goopy nail polish is so sad to me lol. Great set of empties! 

 

Best Wishes,

 

Janean

Re: Empties - 2019

@JaneanBT it’s 😞 , that’s one of my fav nail polish colors. Nothing beats a red nail polish.

awesome empties! @jen81

Re: Empties - 2019

@jen81 You have inspired me to do some destashing when I get home! Great job! 

 

Best,
Rebecca

Re: Empties - 2019

Great destash @jen81 ! 

Re: Empties - 2019

Empties for the first week of May.DDB60D7B-5151-45A7-A21C-FBB159D6613B.jpeg

The star of the show was easily Charlotte Tilbury’s Legendary Lashes. No need for primer. Separated and thickened, a nice dramatic lash for my ‘no-makeup’ eyeliner only days. Love, have another DS and will repurchase. The Milk did grip my makeup but pilled like the majority of primers I try. Could be my skin, seems like a good product but I am tossing due to repeated attempts to make it work and having to completely start my makeup application process all over again. The Ouai makes a great detangler for my daughter’s hair. 

To say this week’s masks were a mixed bag would be an understatement. The Beautytrix is a great ‘I-don’t-want-to-think-about-masking’ but my skin needs some 💗 mask. Enjoyed the Lychee mask and the Moschino bear 🐻 was fun and had a nice serum. Then When is a regular. I liked this Centella mask (low expectations almost always yield high results). 

I’m not a huge fan of Tony Moly masks but  @lmaster reviewed the peach one awhile back and I was curious. I like. I could actually do with an entire packet of small masks (like Kocostar does) to spot-mask, but the sheet mask over it was nice. A little too tacky for my liking but I look forward to trying out the other ones I purchased now. The Patchology Eye mask was great but I have a dupe I prefer that is much less $. However I think from now on it would be fun to stick one of these in a card to someone for fun, they are the perfect size.

The Masque*ology I’m still contemplating. The Honey Mask was aged so I can’t really comment on what this mask is like. I am hoping to pick up a newer version in a store.

Re: Empties - 2019

Such a bummer about the honey masks being sent out so old @eshoe .  I hope you have better luck in store.  And now you've added the CT mascara to my list to checkout!

Re: Empties - 2019

@missjeanie The lychee Mask was sooooo good in comparison! It was only 9 months old;)
