Re: Empties - V2

@Samtian super impressed you finished one of the SC lip oils.  Lip products always seem to take me forever. 

Re: Empties - V2

@missjeanie Thank you! It seems like it took me forever, but I used it daily at work, like every two hours over a 12 hour shift. 

Re: Empties - V2

@Samtian  i love Lush i'd be curious to know some of your favorite products from there i'm always looking for good recommendations so i can try new products there. 

Re: Empties - V2

@WhereYouStand I'm sorry I can't be of any help. I don't have one near me and the products I get are generally gifts given to me. 

Re: Empties - V2


 this is 2 months of empties, September and October. I really haven’t been using too much lately, especially makeup products as I’m barely wearing makeup since of constant mask wearing. Anyway, here are my empties: 


loved: both Bath & Body Works candles, 2 favs for sure. The sanitizer, and also the c.o. bigelow lip balm which are from Bath & Body Works too. The balm is thick but not sticky or goopy. I wore it at night and also through the day. Already repurchased. VS Pink body spray was sweet and light, I usually layered this with a perfume and always liked the combination. Stila liquid eyeshadow, I adore these! They’re so pigmented and sparkly, but they dry out sooo quick. MILK Kush mascara, one of my top 2 mascaras. Very lengthening and dark, doesn’t smudge on my oily lids either. Already have 2 back ups. 

meh: Tatcha mask, it was nice, but it was a brightening mask and I prefer deep cleansing/purifying or oil control, this was obviously a sample, but I wouldn’t purchase. Benefit Boi-ing concealer; just too orange toned. Their shade range is not the best. It is good coverage but too orange. Wouldn’t repurchase. Lise Watier blending sponge, it was a little stiff, not awful but I prefer real techniques or beauty blender for sure. Probably wouldn’t repurchase unless it was on sale for a good price. Polish’d makeup removing wipes, removed my makeup enough to follow up with a cleanser, but there are other brands I prefer. Wouldn’t bother repurchasing. 

Hated: Tarte Knockout toner, it smells like alchol and dried out my skin. I didn’t even use the whole thing, I used it for about 4-5 weeks and then dumped the rest.

Re: Empties - V2

Wow @sephoraaddict918 great empties! I'm seeing some loves of mine you didn't like 😆 the SC banana mask and the tarte primer 😥 what about the sdj didn't you like?

Re: Empties - V2

Thanks @lmaster! Yeah, it's always funny when my "Love" is someone else's "Meh." The only letdown about the SDJ santizer was the smell doesn't last. I spray and initially get that amazing scent. Then it's gone in a flash. I was just expecting it to linger on my hands for a while.  

Re: Empties - V2

Ok good to know! @sephoraaddict918 

Re: Empties - V2

  • @sephoraaddict918 Curious / worried about the sol de janeiro hand sanitizer I haven’t tried it yet but I bought for / stocked up assuming it was good because I like everything so far that I’ve tried in their line. Does it smell bad? Or is it drying? I spent 40 dollars on buying four of them. 

Re: Empties - V2

@WhereYouStand It smells AMAZING!! If you love the SDJ scent, then you will love this. The only thing I didn't like about it was the scent doesn't last. Five seconds after I spray it, the scent is gone. I was hoping the SDJ scent would linger on my hands, but that wasn't the case. 

Re: Empties - V2

@sephoraaddict918 I am so happy to see the beautyblender blendercleanser® solid Charcoal as a love!! I have not tried it yet, but I do have it

Re: Empties - V2

@lmaster It's definitely worth it for my sponges. I can use Dr. Bronner's for the brushes, but nothing gets my sponges clean like the Beauty Blender Charcoal Solild Cleanser. It was included during the Ulta's last 21 Days of Beauty, so that would be a great time to try it since it's on the pricier side.
