Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you @naturalooks15! 🤗 I was adamant that I was going to get through a lot of my samples. They’re mostly skincare so that makes it easier for me to go through. I now have a long list of products I’m really interested in. 🤩🤩💗

Re: Empties - 2019

I'm always impressed by all the sheet masks you go through each month! I spy an SK-II mask. I absolutely love SK-II Masks, they give my skin an instant radiant glow. ❤️

Re: Empties - 2019

I love SK-II @PenelopeBT. ❤️ This mask is great! Love the hydration and radiance it gives. 💗💕 

Re: Empties - 2019

So many great empties @itsfi!!!! 

Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you @sephoraaddict918! 🤗  I was able to work through a lot last month and I found some products I’m looking forward to incorporating into my routines as well! 😃

RE: Empties - 2019

My October and November empties. Loved: Marc Jacobs and FAB creams, Eva NYC hair serum, Dr. Brandt mask, and the candles. Everything else was just okay.

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

@samkeaysxo I will have to try the "Leaves" candle!

 

Best,
Rebecca

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Leaves is one of my favorite B&BW candles @samkeaysxo! Nice work on the empties. 

Re: Empties - 2019

My empties for November!

Tartelette Palette, Tartelette in Bloom Palette, Cover FX Contour Kit, Jane Iredale Pommist Hydration Spray, Klorane Strengthening & Revitalizing Shampoo, Nioxin Scalp & Hair TreatmentTartelette Palette, Tartelette in Bloom Palette, Cover FX Contour Kit, Jane Iredale Pommist Hydration Spray, Klorane Strengthening & Revitalizing Shampoo, Nioxin Scalp & Hair Treatment
I'm decluttering the Tartelette palettes and the Cover FX contour kit. Since I've been doing my One Month, One Palette Challenge, I have learned the shadows from the Tartelette palettes looks terrible on me. No matter the color combination, The shadows ALWAYS looks grey and muddy. They do not bring me joy, so I thanked them for their service and tossed them. I actually hit pan on the concealers in the contour kit, but it's not worth keeping it around just for the gold cream highlighter. So ... thank you, next!
The Jane Iredale Setting Spray was a Diamond perk, and I am soooo glad I didn't spend money on that. It is a pricey item, and I didn't enjoy using it. I was not a fan of the scent. The Klorane shampoo made my hair feel stringy and stripped of all moisture, even after using a pre-poo treatment, and the Nioxin treatment didn't work for me. This was my second bottle and still no results.

I did like the NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Foundation, but I think the undertone for Cappuccino is too yellow for me. Next time, I will try a different shade.

I did enjoy using the hair mask and conditioner, but it just took me forever to finish them. I would try them again, but there are not on the top of my repurchase list because there is always something new to try. I am still on the fence with the Good Girl scent. Some days I love it. Some days I'm nauseated by it. I really like the Sephora eye masks, but the packaging is kind of wasteful, so I'm trying to limit my purchase of those.

The Dewytree was a World Market find, and I will immediately snap it up if I come across it again. The Blender Cleanser, Shiseido Cotton are staples in my skincare routine. The Kiehl's concentrate and eye treatment are staples too. I like using the samples to refill my jars and bottles. The Dove Dry Spray has become a new fave. I've already repurchased the MB Soap and Sephora Lip Liner in Rosewood, and I've added Alien on my list of fragrances to try next.

 

 

 

 

Re: Empties - 2019

@sephoraaddict918 try "yes to tomatoes" charcoal soap instead of blendercleanser. It's a fraction of a cost, and basically is/does the same thing. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks for the tip @fantaji! I've added it to my list of items to buy.

Re: Empties - 2019

@sephoraaddict918 I feel inspired at your ability to say thank you and move on from those palettes! 

Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you @missjeanie!! I have to admit that it has been a difficult road. I have been trying to make them work for a while, but I finally gathered the strength to let go of what doesn't work for me. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Lots of empties here @sephoraaddict918! Great job! I like your one month, one palette challenge. I'm going to think about that for 2020.

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks @itsfi!! The one month, one palette has been a game changer for me. It's been helping me appreciate what I have and cool my need of every new palette that hits the market.

Empties - 2019

I can't remember the last time I posted empties. I think these are my (and my BF's) empties for late Sept to Nov. We are moving soon so I've been in "clean out my stash" mode.

Re: Empties - 2019

Fantastic work cleaning out your stash @Lazybeautybeast!

Re: Empties - 2019

Not a bad month for empties!  I was really trying to use up a few specific things that I'd had for way too long so it's nice to finally have them GONE.

 

Didn't love the White Mint Latte--hardly any throw to it--but the other two were winners and the Hot Cocoa and Cream is a longstanding fav.Didn't love the White Mint Latte--hardly any throw to it--but the other two were winners and the Hot Cocoa and Cream is a longstanding fav.The Ole Henriksen mask was nice but that tube lasted FOREVER and I was honestly happy to finally finish it because I was just getting a little tired of it.  I'm sad to say that the Moon Juice Beauty Shroom was a big letdown for me; it has great ingredients and it looked so promising but I never felt like I saw any noticeable results or difference from it.  A friend actually gifted me the Eve Lom moisturizer because she didn't like it and I thought it was OK (as was the Caudalie) but I wouldn't recommend either one for individuals with oily skin or for people who dislike heavier moisturizers since both of them are definitely thick and contain oils.The Ole Henriksen mask was nice but that tube lasted FOREVER and I was honestly happy to finally finish it because I was just getting a little tired of it.
