Re: Empties - V2

I love mixing it with my body butter @Samtian thank you 😊

Re: Empties - V2

I love that goldfadden eye cream! @lmaster 

Re: Empties - V2

@jen81 oh it's fantastic, instant eye brightener and hydrates very nicely

Re: Empties - V2

My paltry batch of July Empties:



 The BareMinerals eyeshadow palette is actually a declutter. I regretted it after I purchased it because although the shades looked pretty the formula just wasn't good. I used up a couple of the shades and depotted a couple of others that I knew I actually might use but I honestly just hate seeing this palette in my collection so off it goes!

     I'm also decluttering the Buxom lip gloss. I've used Buxom glosses in the past and I've always enjoyed them but for some reason I had a reaction to this one. I don't know if I've become somewhat sensitive to the formulation or if I ended up with one that had gone bad (it's been sitting in my stash for a little while) but either way it absolutely thrashed my lips so we are definitely parting ways.








Re: Empties - V2

Love the Bioderma @CookieGirl1 .  I don't even bother with other's for my eye makeup remover anymore. 

Re: Empties - V2

Once I finish my micellar water, the Bioderma is the one I want to get. Glad to hear it is a love @CookieGirl1 

Re: Empties - V2

I've loved Bioderma for years now, @ShortErica.  I don't think you'll be disappointed :).

Re: Empties - V2

@CookieGirl1 same!! With the buxom!! Idk if the ones I had went bad but Everytime I wore them,,I literally felt like my skin was being ripped off 😳

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster it's a mystery to me because I've probably gone through 4 or 5 Buxom glosses before and had no problems but THIS one was brutal.  My lips quickly turned into a painful, peeling mess and it's taken a couple of weeks for them to finally heal. 

Re: Empties - V2

Yep!! @CookieGirl1 same experience here, I couldn't stand it, I'm too scared to even try them again

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster I have a (fairly new) little deluxe size that came as a GWP still lurking in my lip gloss stash so I'll definitely give it a try and fingers crossed that IT doesn't shred my lips 💋

Re: Empties - V2

@CookieGirl1 please let me know

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster I'm officially disappointed. I went ahead and tried out the mini Buxom gloss for a couple of days now and unfortunately I had the same reaction but much faster this time. I only had to use it a handful of times before my lips started literally peeling again so I guess there's something in that particular formula that my lips just don't like anymore. It's a no for me, dawg. At least there are a ton of other really great gloss gloss formulas out there so I guess I'm not really missing out that much...

Re: Empties - V2

That's just so strange to me @CookieGirl1 because I know I liked it awhile ago 😩

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster same.  I totally don't get it.  Maybe YOU'LL still be able to wear them, though; there's always a chance that you just got a dud.

Re: Empties - V2

Nope I already decluttered them @CookieGirl1 a few months ago,, I think I had 2 or 3 and they all did the same thing uughhh

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster will do!

Re: Empties - V2

Great items all around here @MoniDJ !  I love that Nars TM too, it's been my go to all summer long. 

Re: Empties - V2

@MoniDJ ooo I'm curious about the CosRX hyaluronic acid cream. I just purchased the snail one.


Also how is The INKEY List Kaolin Mask? How would you compare it to other clay masks you've tried? Thanks!

Re: Empties - V2

@ShortErica  The Cosrx cream is thick and takes time to fully absorb, so I only use it at night. It was good during the cold, dry winter months, but I wouldn’t use it any other time of year. I’ve been wanting to try the snail one and the honey ceramide cream for the longest, but I have so many moisturizers to get through before I buy anything else.
I like the Inkey List Clay mask because it doesn’t dry my skin out. It’s pretty basic and it doesn’t fully dry down. I mask daily and this was nice to add to my rotation, especially with it being very affordable.
