Empties - V2

Seeing product empties is so satisfying 🙂


Post your weekly, monthly, quarterly, whenever-ly empties and let us know how you felt about them!

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you @Cissy63!

Re: Empties - V2

Loved your detailed reviews, @faeriegirl. Bummer about those CT lippies. They look so pretty, but yes, they need to work for you, too!


Wow is that a full jar of the YTTP mask 😱 not good to hear that it feels different. I have not used it in awhile but have a sample I should try, I sure hope it has not been reformulated.

Re: Empties - V2

@eshoe  I made myself use 1/4 of it before I gave up. I’m hoping it was just a bad batch. 🤞

Re: Empties - V2

Did you contact them with the batch code, @faeriegirl? That seems so off, I would expect much more from the brand.

Re: Empties - V2

@eshoe  I didn’t contact them. Normally I would have just returned them but they were both from holiday sets and I had already used the other items.

Re: Empties - V2

January saw a lot of makeup declutter.  If it wasn’t for last week’s Makeup Challenge I probably wouldn’t have cleaned out some products.  


 Makeup declutter.   But I am going to pull out the 2 iT Cosmetics blushes.  It was suggested by @lmaster  to use some powder to tone them down.  So they are reprieved for now



 The used foils including sheet mask packs 

They were all good. I have more of DDG packs too! They work well with my skin.



 Samples used up.  That TF foundation is just wonderful. But expensive.  And the Kilian scent is devine.  I gave the package to my husband just in case he needs an idea for a gift.😍



 Skincare finished. I would repurchase any of them except for the Tropic Glow shave oil.  It was fine but more expensive than shaving cream I use.  It didn’t do anything extra for my skin. 

And on to February! 

Re: Empties - V2

Fabulous job!! @Cissy63 if you like the formula on those blushes, definitely try it

Re: Empties - V2

@Cissy63 Wow great job!!! I'd have a hard time getting rid of those! I love how you repurposed the Killian package!

Re: Empties - V2

@Samtian  Thank you 🌹. Oh it’s so hard for part with anything!  But it feels good.  Oh yes, put the card right in his hand!

Re: Empties - V2

@Cissy63 Great empties and destashing. I have the same Clinique Take The Day Off Balm. I need to work on using it up before I open a new balm.

Re: Empties - V2

@Mellmars1185  Thank you.  I know how you feel.  I had to stop opening other balms so I could use it up.  The next one that is opened (it’s a bad habit) is from Sunday Reilly.  So that needs to be finished.  🤣🤣

Re: Empties - V2

@Cissy63 I think it was because I bought some fun scented balms and I HAD to try them. Ahh learning lessons...

Re: Empties - V2

Great work using up so much skincare, @Cissy63! It feels great to declutter, too 

Re: Empties - V2

@curlychiquita  Thank you. Yes it does feel good!

Re: Empties - V2

Stellar work, @Cissy63 🙌🏼 I also hope your husband takes the little hint and surprises you with  that Kilian’s…that is on my loves list, too 💖

Re: Empties - V2

@eshoe  Thank you! Me too 😀

Re: Empties - V2

Awesome job @Cissy63 !

Re: Empties - V2

@faeriegirl  Thank you 😀

Re: Empties - V2

January was rough on everything except my empties use: So many makeup products have been ready to go! The powders are CYO and MAC Beauty Powder in Pretty Kitty. The eyeshadow was Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy, which I remember using in the first versions of the Face Case as a teenager. What a classic.


I’ve also been focusing on skincare minis. All were good to fine, but that B Tight cream is not kidding about being warming! It was like an intense heating pad in cream form, so if you’re expecting it and have a sample, slap it on when it’s freezing. 



Re: Empties - V2

@moreotter Wow fantastic job!! Love Midnight Cowboy. 

Re: Empties - V2

Great job using everything up, @moreotter
