Re: Empties - V2

How long did the Paulas choice drops last @jen81?

Re: Empties - V2

@faeriegirl  They recommend you use up in 3 month before vit c loses potency. It lasted three months with generous usage. The color will start to change and darken when it loses potency. I used a dropper full each time. I will buy when they have a 20% off sale . Which they often have. 

Re: Empties - V2

@jen81 I really wish they would put this in an airtight package.  Or, just sell a smaller size in the bottle so that you don't wind up throwing part of it away b/c it deactivated.  

Re: Empties - V2

@greeneyedgirl107  Airtight/airless pump would be nice. I was able to use it up in three months before it started to darken. I think you have to plan to use in three months which is an adjustment. I tend to switch around to new products way to often. I will wait to repurchase for this reason because I have Sunday riley ceo serum to finish up and don’t want to chance wasting any. I have seen a trial size in the past, not sure if they still have it. 

Re: Empties - V2

@jen81 A trial size would be perfect!  Thanks for the info...gonna go check on it!

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you @jen81!

Re: Empties - V2

You got this @Samtian! Your empties goals is within reach! I wonder what the 100th product will be. Hmmm... 🤔 

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi Thank you! I am currently 2 away!

Re: Empties - V2

@Samtian  Ahhh so close!!!

Re: Empties - V2

@ather Haha next month!

Re: Empties - V2

Wow you are sooooo close to your goal!! @Samtian 

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster Thank you, I'm excited! Far better this year than last year!

Re: Empties - V2

What was it about th clear improvement mask that was a nope, @Samtian?

Re: Empties - V2

@haleyvvvv Haha the fact I had to mix it myself. It was just powder and you mix it with water. Nope don't like that.

Re: Empties - V2

Yep, that would do it! That does sound annoying, @Samtian

Re: Empties - V2

@haleyvvvv It was! It took three tries to finally get the water to powder ratio figured out. 

Re: Empties - V2

Definitely a nope, @Samtian!! The pre-mixed one is quite nice though. 

Re: Empties - V2

Being a lip fanatic, my eyes immediately went to the bright red tube and thought it was ABH American Doll bc I have it and the packaging and colour look similar. I do remember CP Creeper was a popular shade though! I wonder if it's still sold on their website @Samtian 

Re: Empties - V2

@Guessgal It is! I'm going to have to look up that ABH one. 

Re: Empties - V2

I have  massive bag of empties I keep throwing things into. But, I am not going to go through it because it’s so daunting, so I thought I’d show some recent empties and ACTUALLY throw them away now. I may get to the bag eventually but this is a start. 

Full Size items:

  • Not sure I noticed any difference in the Super you, though people swear by these. I will see if I’m more irritable without but not likely to repurchase. I got these at a 2-for-1 during Nordstrom anniversary sale.
  • The Sephora body wash was nice enough, I bought it in Europe accidentally, I thought it was lotion. 😞
  • Caudalie eye cream- I really liked it, very creamy and hydrating.
  • Shiseido cotton is a staple - already re-purchased full size
  • Lush bath bomb was awesome - from a Valentine’s Day gift exchange here - I finally used it, so fun and lovely scent 💕💕💕

Sample items:

  • Raw beauty - tastes pretty terrible, would not purchase
  • Dr. Jart peel - was pretty fun and exfoliating
  • Coverfx concealer - okay but not life changing to purchase from the card, would have to try a real sample in store
  • Make Up For Ever - Reboot - a great sample with large bubbles of 4 different colors. It was enough for me to try for like a week and I ended up purchasing the full size. Beautiful coverage, almost full but with the lightweight texture, and wears well throughout the day. Love MUFE!
  • Exuviance AP peel - got it on sale at Ulta, really nice when I need an acid peel

I think that’s it! Feeling accomplished at posting this, lol.
