Re: Empties - 2019

Yay! Sometimes I question whether my opinions are true since we are all different or I'm going something wrong with the product. Thanks for commenting @quspork!

Re: Empties - 2019

I definitely understand that feeling, @ShortErica! It can really make you feel crazy when one items is just beloved by everyone (it seems) and it just doesn't work out for you. 

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica I use the boscia as a pre-pre cleanse if that makes sense? If I’m wearing a lot of face products (usually for a special occasion or a date night. on a regular work day I don’t wear a ton of concealer and never foundation, just a touch of powder), I’ll put some of the boscia on at the same time as my Too Faced Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oiland after that take a makeup wipe and take everything off, and then go on with my cleanser and Kiehl's Since 1851 Ultra Facial Toner 8.4 oz/ 250 mland by the time I get to the toner everything is off. I let it sit for a few mins just so that the makeup can start to break off. If you’re still looking for a similar product, I had a sample of the Dermalogica Precleanse Cleansing Oil 5.1 oz/ 150 mLand it did a FANTASTIC job, and smelled like lavender. I think a mini version is coming out which is great because a little goes a long way. I had a foil that lasted 4 uses!! The boscia only works for me because I don’t use as an actual precleanse on a regular basis haha.

Re: Empties - 2019

@cianni - thanks for your explanation. I can see it working as a pre-pre-cleanse but I just want a one product to remove it all and then a gentle cleanser (I'm using CeraVe) to follow. My makeup is generally powder foundation, mascara (not waterproof), blush, and maybe a brow gel or lip product so my hope is I can find a one and done remover. I'll have to check out the Dermalogica. Also @faeriegirl had a great review of the new Sephora cleanser which is saved in my loves list. I should get samples of those so I can test and then purchase during the sale.

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica ooooh true! I have a few of the new SC skincare products saved to try as well! Luckily I’ve been making it through my pan project pretty well so by the winter sale I’ll actually have a need to stock up on things!

Re: Empties - 2019

I totally relate! My goal is to have no foils or deluxe samples (minus some lip samples) by November. I'm looking forward to the fall sale and holiday kits @cianni 

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica isn’t it crazy to realize how much stuff we all stockpile 😂 I’ve been doing an experiment to see how long I can go without having to buy a moisturizer .... it’s going to be January 2020 based on the most recent evaluation of my stash LOL

Re: Empties - 2019

Too much! Ha! That's mascara minis for me..and blush. Have you been taking notes on the moisturizers so you know what you like best @cianni?

Re: Empties - 2019

Hahaa you know it ✔️ They’re organized by time of day and season LOL (I know you’ll appreciate the organization of an excel spreadsheet😂@ShortErica 

Re: Empties - 2019

That is AMAZING @cianni !!!

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks @RebeccaBT!

well you got a couple nice ones in there that worked out...

well you got a couple nice ones in there that worked out 😉 @ShortErica

Re: well you got a couple nice ones in there that worked out...

Yep, really none of them were bad @lmaster ..the boscia just didn't clean all my makeup to be worth it. I want a remover that removes it all! Is perfection too much to ask? 😂

Re: well you got a couple nice ones in there that worked out...

Heck no @ShortErica  I want to see those results!

Re: Empties - 2019

Thank you for the tag, @ShortErica 🙂

Re: Empties - 2019

No problem @eshoe 😉

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica, sorry there wasn't a good color match for you with the NARS Radiant Cream Concealer; that's one I like a lot. NARS comes out with new shades from time to time so if you like the formula on this one, keep an eye out for future releases of additional shades. As for other concealer suggestions, you might want to look into Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer Natural Beigeor Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer, the latter is available directly from Tarte or at Ulta.

 

 

Re: Empties - 2019

Since it was the sample, there are other shades I could try @itsfi. But I wasn't wowed - though it would be hard to wow will only a couple uses in the sample. Thanks for your recommendations. I am lucky with pretty good skin but I think a concealer to cover a bit more of my redness when I use something light like BB/CC cream would be wonderful to have. I prefer a natural, maybe leaning more matte finish. Do you think one of the two you suggested would be more along those lines than the other?

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica, all three (NARS, Too Faced and Tarte) have a natural finish; as I think about it, I don't know which would be the more matte of the 3. 😞  Too Faced is full coverage; NARS is medium to full coverage and the Tarte is in between. I wear concealer most days to cover some redness around my nose and acne scars along my jawline and it's sometimes the only base makeup I wear on weekends. I'll try to remember to pull all 3 out tonight to see which of them leans matte.

Re: Empties - 2019

That's good to know @itsfi. I'll look forward to hearing what you think. I'm pretty sure all 3 looked to have a decent shade range but I wonder if one will match my skin better than the others. I guess I have a good excuse to get some samples! 🙂
