Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe you are too funny!!

Re: Empties - 2019

Weird masks are the spice of life @lmaster 😄

Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe So impressed, I do not even have a quarter of the empties you do. I need to step it up 🙂


Re: Empties - 2019

Me too, @RebeccaBT !

Re: Empties - 2019

I am trying to be a bit more methodical about finishing products right now, @RebeccaBT. Want to be ready for the holiday sets!

Re: Empties - 2019

Ok, first fall and lead up to Christmas on Sephora, and I'm beginning to hear chatter about holiday sets?!  Like....I should be excited and my wallet should tremble, is that it? @eshoe  


Re: Empties - 2019

Every year I aim to scale back in the summer/fall so that I can take advantage of sets I want come winter, @l8totheparty. Like with the Laneige lip set-I should have gifted the three DS sizes and just kept the FS. This year I plan to be more prepared so that I buy the sets with items I want to try.

Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe I need to get through some of my skincare to make room for all the holiday goodies too! Can't believe Christmas is in only a few months! 




Re: Empties - 2019

Four months, @RebeccaBT 😳 I am not prepared this year!

Empties - 2019

love everything, but don't care for the scent on this particular hempz, like self tanner, but this one made my pores clog

RE: Empties - 2019

Here are my empties from the past 2 months or so!


Loves: Masque Vivant, Soulfood, Patchology

Likes/Good:Glow Recipe, Briogeo

Meh: Charcoal sheet mask broke me out, Skyn Iceland mask was dry(I wonder if it was a faulty package or something)



Loves: Kiehls Calendula Deep Cleansing Face wash is amazing! Cleanses really well without leaving your skin feeling tight. I consider myself a cleanser connoisseur and would highly recommend this.

Really liked: It Cosmetics confidence in a cleanser feels lovely and creamy on the skin. My skin felt really soft and there was no residue or film left after washing it off. Only downside was the citrus peel oil or something similar on the formula. On days my skin was irritated from retinol I felt a slight burn. Glow recipe cleanser was gentle and pleasant to use, this was great as a second cleanse after a balm or oil. I wouldn't use it on the mornings, because it made my skin a smidge tight.

Good: Glossier cleanser and YTTP cleanser. Good for second cleanse, but a bit drying to use in the mornings.

Meh: Omorovicza cleansing balm (you absolutely need a flannel for this and even after a flannel I could feel a film on my skin) and Estee Lauder cleanser. Terribly expensive for what they do.

Bad: I am not a cetaphil person (cerave has better and more expensive formulas)

Beyond Bad: The SKII was the most horrid product I've ever used on my skin. My skin felt so dry it was painful.



Loves: Juliette Has a Gun Not a perfume, Essence nail polish drying drops, ABH brow wiz, Mac mascara (I love the wand on this one!)

Good/average: Tarte radiant setting spray, murad eye cream, Klorane body wash (moisturizing, but scent was basic), Alterna hairspray, Sturm HA serum(very good, but not worth $300 for FS), Caudalie cream

Bad: Pretty Vulgar (From influenster, the worst mascara I've used in a long time), Trestique eyeshadow stick (crumbles and uneven)


Re: RE: Empties - 2019

Nice run-down/ review! @Cyncynn 

Re: Empties - 2019

Some empties finally - I had duplicates of certain items but now they are done 😫 love the Tata Harper and would recommend.  I’m never out of Bum Bum Cream.  I finished the whole box of face masks.  Loved the Glow watermelon overnight mask and would recommend.  No more rice polish from a Tatcha,  I will replace as I absolutely love it.  No7 overnight worked well, not great but good.  I hated the smell so I won’t repurchase.  Drunk Elephant sample and Youth to the People samples good but not enough to form an opinion other than I liked the whipped moisturizer sample.  Next fragrance in a Cocoa Woods 😘 would probably buy a full size next time.  Loreal pure sugar scrub is perfect for me and smells so good.  On my third jar.  



Re: Empties - 2019

Hi @2manyperfumes ,


I am in need of another Bum Bum soon! I can't wait to restock! 


Best wishes,



excellent empties!! bum bum is so great @2manyperfumes

Re: excellent empties!! bum bum is so great @2manyperfumes

I’ve yet to find anything else better

Re: Empties - 2019

@2manyperfumes Awesome empties! How were the face wipes? 



Re: Empties - 2019

They were okay I like them with a bit more moisture but they do the job well.  Sometimes I spray a bit of micellar water on them.  

Re: Empties - 2019


My empties part one. 

Benefit brow pencil in 4.5 is my ride and die. I think my brows are my most expensive beauty purchase, besides haircare. 

Laura Mercier hydrating primer is a favorite, but I'm looking for something different.

Olehenriksen Truth cleanser and Truth vitamin C  serum are both holy grail! And they both come in travel size...for me that's a bonus since I travel a little. That vitamin C serum loves my skin and dries quickly, no oily feel to it.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow moisturizer is fantastic! I did find another moisturizer I like a little better, but will still use it. Their sleep mask was ok. I use Belief instead now.

Jurlique rosewater mist was refreshing! Will restock!

KVD Lock-It setting powder was a fav, but I recently decided to reduce use of talc, which this product does contain. Won't repurchase this one sadly.

Too Faced Peach Perfect foundation is my favorite of all time! I like that it's NOT full coverage! I'm looking for other foundations to try, specifically powder. But this one is my go to!

Tatcha overnight memory serum was ok, I think there are other products that offer my skin more, which I use now.

Boscia face sponges are great! I'll use these in the morning. Feels nice and you may add a cleanser to it. 

Skin & Co. Whipped Cleansing Cream was a sample that dried out my face. I'm already dry so this is a pass.

Re: Empties - 2019

Hi @GodivaMoon ,


This is such an impressive set of empties! I have never seen so many empty brow pencils before but I get it! My sister loves The Ole Henriksen Truth Serum. It really does brighten your skin! 


Best Wishes,



Re: Empties - 2019

Brows are my most basic need. I try a lot of brow products at the same time, so I don't finish them as fast.
