Empties - 2019

nope to the blueberry sheet mask, it contains alcohol high on the ingredients list, liked the banobagi mask and dp hue acv the vinegar smell was not overpowering and it did a good job at cleansing. 💗 everything else 😍

Re: Empties - 2019

Empties from the past 10 or so days

(ps, I’m doing a daily sheet mask self imposed challenge - hence the larger then normal amount of masks!)



Notes about some loves: 

  • Korres cleanser - this smells amazing and cleanses while moisturizing. The only bad thing is there seems to always be some moldy buildup on the bottle? I keep it in my shower (which I know some people are very against) but I’ve never had this issue with any other bottle. 
  • Kiehls Glow Formula - I cant wait to buy this! It’s a primer / super duper sheer coverage cream that gives the most subtle glow. It’ll be perfect for summer. 
  • Deep sleep pillow spray - I’ve deep dove into the world of pillow sprays and this one was so fantastic. I had the best sleep the nights that I used this! I’m working through a couple more but will probably purchase full size once I have finished those. 


  • These were all pretty good! I had one dud but I must have thrown the packaging away. So far I’ve had a really good experience with Facetory sub so hopefully that keeps up. 
  • Oh, the finger mask! Gifted from the wonderful @eshoe! Such a cool idea but I think I needed a friend to help me put on the last 2, lol. Most of them fit a little big but my thumbs must’ve larger than normal. Really cool idea that did make my cuticles nice and soft


lots of loves with those sheet masks 😍 @scott1201

Re: lots of loves with those sheet masks 😍 @scott1201

Yep! 🤗 looks like we had a lot in common, @lmaster!

Re: Empties - 2019

@scott1201 we are on some sort of masking love opposites warp, @scott1201...everything that was just ok for you was a love for me, and vice versa! Odd about that Korres, I have it too but haven’t noticed any build up. I wonder if humidity plays a big part🤔

Re: Empties - 2019

Ooooh good point about the humidity! I bet that is it! I’m bad about turning my fans on in the bathroom and it’s already pretty humid here anyway. 


Also, funny about our masking Twlight Zone! I knew you loved that Whole Foods mask which I, admittedly, don’t really like but it wasn’t bad 😉 funny how preferences can be so different! @eshoe

Re: Empties - 2019

@christyrc - eshoe had a good point about the humidity! Wonder if that is it?

RE: Re: Empties - 2019

@scott1201 Yes! What is with that Korres bottle??? Mine does the same thing. I always imagined it was gunky Makeup residue. Now I realize I don’t touch it with makeup residue on my hands. I’m gonna relocate my bottle now. 😝

Re: RE: Re: Empties - 2019

I’m glad it’s not just me, @christyrc! It’s probably a good match for mildew since it has the lid with grooves on the sides

RE: Empties - 2019

Really, I’m more of a monthly empties poster, but I’ve been using up stuff rapidly this month. Maybe because I started getting intentional about decluttering in September? IDK. LIKE Body Drench exfoliating gel. IDK. It’s likable, but I’m not going out of my way to find out who sells it. So, not a thing i’ll repurchase. MAC Gleam. It’s a cool color, but feels less relevant to me these days so won’t repurchase. So glad it’s panned. UD Naked. This is a love. I have many backups. Just a good neutral taupey brown that goes with everything.

good job on panning!! @christyrc

Re: RE: Empties - 2019

This makes me think I should pull out some of m MAC singles.  They haven't gotten any love from me in a long time.... but they used to be-- as you said-- more relevant in my life.

Re: Empties - 2019

@keana1 Something about an empty toner bottle is SO satisfying hahhaa

Re: Empties - 2019

Did you ever try this toner @cianni ? It’s so great! ❤️❤️❤️ 

@keana1 you love the buffet? or is that a nope?

@keana1 you love the buffet? or is that a nope?

Re: @keana1 you love the buffet? or is that a nope?

I love the Buffet, it’s full of peptides @lmaster ! It’s one of my favourite serums ❤️❤️❤️. A 30ml bottle ( 1oz ) can last for a few months, the key is to use only 3 drops for the entire face ( eye area included ) and it won’t pill ! 

Re: @keana1 you love the buffet? or is that a nope?

That's exactly how I use every serum @keana1 one drop per cheek and one in the center of my forehead and pat it all in. I'm loving the ordinary buffet too just started using it about a month ago and it's half ish gone. Loving how light weight it is too 💙💗

Re: @keana1 you love the buffet? or is that a nope?

It’s my HG serum @lmaster ! I can’t go a day without using it ( twice a day ) ! I love it so much that I have 3 backups! It’s my drug of choice LOL 😂! Best of all, it’s so inexpensive for a multi-peptide serum ❣️

Re: @keana1 you love the buffet? or is that a nope?

@keana1 oh totally agree. Love it

Re: Empties - 2019

Weekly trash, I knew I was busy this week but 6 sheet masks (including one from this morning) was  surprising. 6EB8E3BC-B946-4183-9192-3154C69FE628.jpeg


All of these masks were great, the Vita Cocktail my least favorite yet it was still a good mask. The Merbliss was very nice, although I was hoping it was a gauze mask like another one in their line that is amazing. Still good though.


No loves here, everything was kind of so-so or not for me. Except for the Kilian, it had a grandpa smell that was not a good one and I couldn’t stand myself when I wore it. 

I had had high hopes for the ND foundation, but it was just too much coverage on the first application without allowing me to build up. I tried three different primers (Tatcha Silk Canvas, Becca Velvet Blurring Powder, and Becca First Light) and there was no ‘glow’ just a flat matte finish. Which, if that’s your thing, this might be your thing!

JHAG Sunny Side Up was not very memorable for me, can’t place the scent but it wasn’t my cup of tea. Not terrible, though.
