October 2018 empties. Found some face mask loves this month, Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb, Lancôme Genifique Hydrogel and Farmacy coconut gel (might have been discontinued). #beautyempties#beautyjunkies
🎉My 100th post! 🎉 🧚🏿♀️There’s been no real change with the @opinailsuk Nail Envy, probably because I haven’t been using it🙃. Happy with my progress with the @makeupforeverofficial primer and @palmersuk hair mist, with daily use I’ll finish these by the end of November. Not sure how to judge the progress on this @cliniqueuk hydroblur moisturiser! There’s about 30% left but I’ve yet to hit pan. - 🧚🏿♀️Speaking of pan...I’ve hit pan (or tub) on the @lush ultrabland cleanser..urgh THIS DOES NOTHING FOR ME😩 *hides from ultrabland loyalists*, I’ll be using it as an evening cleanser and applying a lot so I can get this damn thing out of my collection. I’ve got a whole lotta pan in my beloved @thebodyshop Camomile Cleansing Butter, how I love thee. Holy grail makeup remover. - 🧚🏿♀️Onto the empties 😏. The @nivea_uk soft cream, nice but a bit thin for colder months🤷🏿♀️. Didn’t see a huge difference with the @sheamoistureuk raw shea butter mask, again I know this product has loyalists but meh🤷🏿♀️. The @oralb pro expert toothpaste leaves vile white mucus like stuff in my mouth 😒apparently this is because it’s so abrasive, the white stuff is my mouth lining. Thank u, next.👎🏿
Here are my September & October #beautyempties ! Did pretty decently & hope I'll have more empties this month. Currently going through my opened & unopened stash to review expiry dates!
✔️ Mamonde Pore Clean Toner: One of my fave toners! Helps really well with minimizing pores but has a strong alcohol scent. Big bottle so it's economical. Will repurchase.
✔️ Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Toner: PR from @bentoncosmetic . Good toner if you like light ones. Has a funny thick bitter scent if you apply too much but other than that it works well for add-on moisture. May purchase in future.
✔️ Innisfree No-Sebum Blur Powder: I like this one a lot! Great for someone like me who doesn't wear much makeup. Will repurchase.
✔️ Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder (from Birthday VIP Kit): Still my HG & a staple in my stash. I already have tons of backup haha!
✖️ I'm From Magnolia Wake Essence: Got this through a "pay shipping only" deal from @wishtrend . Still salty about the fact that they asked to pay shipping in USD but item was shipped from their Malaysian office 🙄🙄🙄 4x currency exchange rate! Anyway, this is good enough as another layer of moisture but honestly nothing spectacular. I struggled to finish this & had to ask help from Mum lol! Will not repurchase.
✔️ Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Foam (deluxe sample) - Convenient for travels & I do like this cleanser, have used it many times. Will repurchase.
✖️ Innisfree Sea Salt Perfect Body Cleanser - This is Mum's as I finished mine in August. She had similar thoughts as I did about this: gentle scrub but not economical as had to use a lot of product each time. Will not repurchase.
Thanks for reading!
Late is better than never... so here are my October Empties! This was a really good group of products I finished and would probably repurchase 90% of them once I use up other things. My favorite product of the bunch is the @maccosmetics Volcanic Ash Face Exfoliator because it helped keep the black heads away 🤣 #octoberempties#projectempties
#emptiespost . It’s been awhile as life has been super busy with a new house 🏡, new puppy🐶, and pregnancy 🤰. These empties are from the last two months or so. I’ve been really using a lot of full size items and I just went through my stash and have to say I’m impressed with myself. It’s looking less and less like I’m a hoarder 😂😂
I liked all these products. But I’ll talk about a few for the sake of brevity. The @isclinical cleanser is the second bottle I’ve gone through and I opened another already. It’s an insta favorite so I don’t think I need to discuss it much.
@heyhoney is one of my favorite brands. I discovered them through @ipsy. I’ve used several of these sample sizes of the Good Morning Serum and have also gone through a full size. It’s hydrating and nourishing. In summer months, I can use it without a moisturizer on top.
I’ve used a few sample of the @amorepacific_us Essential Creme Fluid and really like it. Again, in summer I can use it as a moisturizer. It’s just so pricey I haven’t pulled the trigger on a full size.
Makeup items include the @lancomeofficial Cils XL lash primer. It’s the lash primer that made me believe in lash primers. I’ve bought several travel and full sizes and have a back up already. I also went through 2 concealers. @maybelline Age Rewind and @colourpopcosmetics No Filter. Again, I liked both. It might be the colors I chose, but the CP seemed to cover dark circles better. It was also slightly heavier but not so heavy it was annoying. They also both lasted forever.
🌟NEW BLOG POST LIVE🌟 Octobers Empties !! Link to my blog in bio. .
Brands featured - @jomalonelondon @ritualscosmetics @loveimperialleather @loccitane_uk_ire @nipandfab @colabhair @marianilastockholm @growgorgeoushaircare @beautyproglobal @philip_kingsley
Empties!! Haircare, makeup, skincare, and miscellaneous.
I really like the bed head hairspray. The Pantene dry shampoo is nice because there is no white cast. I like the alterna shampoo and conditioner and found full sizes at Winners.
I have repurchased almost all of the makeup empties. I love the deslick spray, better than sex mascara, Dior mascara primer, and bare minerals concealer.
That’s my second Clinique exfoliating scrub. Probably my second pep-start cream. I love it so much; I found backups at Winners. I also really enjoyed the Estée edit dissolve the drama - I found some at Winners and scooped them up. That makeup remover is awesome (reminded me of the dermalogica precleanse). Essie top coat is awesome. I liked the Juicy Oui perfume. This brush (japonesque) sheds so much.
Свет не располагает к фото вообще, но банки выкидывать нужно! #ПустыеБаночки#beautyempties ✔ Карандаш для бровей #nyxcosmetics Taupe стал для меня заменой более дорогим аналогам, к форме привыкаешь быстро, цвет совсем чуть-чуть "теплит", но мне это на руку. ✔ Шампуни #Sachajuan плюс-минус одинаковые, промывают хорошо, но особенного эффекта не заметила. ✔ Сыворотка #Timeless с вит.С, Е и феруловой кислотой очень недорогая, а действие вполне заметное, выравнивает тон кожи, немного подтягивает и освежает, понравилась! ✔ Солнцезащита #Biore на половине, очень выбеливает, может сушить и скатываться на некоторых кремах. Но защита надежная! Оставляла для обгорающих частей тела, но не использовала за офисное лето. До следующего сезона нет смысла держать, т.к. куплен уже давно. ✔ Воск для нонтей #DNC дешево и сердито, мне нравится! 🔵 Пробники:
✅ #LaMer вокруг глаз, приятный, не раздражает, хорошо увлажняет, смело можно брать полную версию! ✅Эссенция с кислотами #Purito ASP Triple нанесла два раза, без негатива, довольно мягкая. ❌ Тональный крем #GiorgioArmani Luminous silk вообще не впечатлил, нанесла и смыла, ложится плохо. ❌ Крем для век #Kiehls довольно странный, липковат, открытия глаз не наблюдалось, хотя многие средства мне с легкостью помогают от утренних отеков. ✅ Лосьон для упругости тела #Clarins приятно пахнет, легко распределяется, на этом все:) #уходоваякосметика#cosmeticaddict#cosmeticrewew#empties#cosmetic#skincare#уходзакожей#мнениеокосметике#уходзалицом#отзывыокосметике#beautyblog#purkkimafia#beautyreview#tyhjät#королевастеклотары
Haven't posted anything in a while, so I thought I would give an update on my #12pansofchristmas . ➡️ For updated pictures.
I have finished 3 of my challenge items. Well technically 2 and hit pan on the physicians formula butter bronzer which is what I wanted. I haven't really been using the skin to die for primer🙈but I'm going to start. I've been using the other products pretty consistently. It feels like I haven't even made a dent on the blush though 😬 Here's hoping I finish a few more soon! 🤞🏻 #makeup#makeupaddiction#makeupchallenge#panproject#empties#makeupislife#beautyempties#beautypan
Sé que tengo pendiente hacer un inventario de todo lo que tengo, pero para mí acabar un producto de maquillaje es todo un hito, y eso hay que enseñarlo 🤗
La Inimitable Mascara de @chanel.beauty es un icono de la marca y un imprescindible en muchos tocadores.
-Si lo que buscas es un efecto natural y elegante, es vuestra máscara. Respeta el mantra "menos es más".
- El cepillo de silicona es una maravilla, no deja grumos y define las pestañas.
- Duración en la pestaña es bastante bueno, y no deja rastros a lo largo del día.
- Formulación muy duradera, se aprovecha mucho el producto y dura muchísimo abierto, por lo que amortizas bastante el producto.
- Si lo que buscas es Volumen, se te queda corta.
- Precio, es un producto de alta gama y alto precio ( unos 30 €)
- Tiene un INCI bastante cuestionable y muy largo.
- El envalaje es ultra excesivo (mucha caja y mucho papel, cuando lo más fácil y eco sería tener la información en la web)
- No es Crueltry-free
Aunque es un producto que me gusta, NO me CONVENCE lo suficiente como para recomendarla.
Creo que su efecto se podría conseguir con marcas más económicas y seguramente más respetuosas y sostenibles.
A pesar de mi opinión, es muy probable que la volváis a ver en mi tocador, porque me la han regalado varias veces (creo que actualmente tengo dos) y desgraciadamente me cuesta mucho deshacerme de productos que son algo más caros. ¿quién de vosotras la ha probado?
Ya sabéis que me encanta saber vuestra opinión🙋🏼😘
Mi época favorita del mes donde les muestro mi basura:
❎Primer wet n wild: promete un montón de cosas, pero sólo sentí que dejaba mate la piel, no rellenaba poros, no alisaba la piel.
✔Polvo Bissú: lo traia en mi bolsa para retocar, no sentí que tuviera cobertura, sólo lo usaba para eliminar el brillo, tal vez repetiría.
✔Pegamento dúo: es mi favorito, es waterproof, seca transparente, no seca en color blanco, huele un poco a pescado, pero JAMÁS se despegan las pestañas.
✔Pestañas Jlash: Me gustan mucho los estilos que manejan, son naturales, fáciles de poner, y siempre las encuentro con descuento!
✔Gel de cejas ardell: es el único producto que uso para las cejas en mi día a día, dura todo el día, las fija, aporta color y volumen a las cejas, me gustaría repetir pero por el momento tengo otros lápices y pomadas que me debo terminar.
❎Polvo kleancolor: es un polvo de una paleta de contornos que depoté, ya aprendí que no necesito una paleta completa para contorno, pero por lo pronto a darles uso.
Once upon a time there was a girl who ran out of all of her favorite products at once AKA the saddest empties there ever was.
OK October empties:
- @deciem NIOD FECC. To be honest I got tired of it. Not repurchasing.
- @myvitaminsuk Catwalk Queen. Only 30 pills and didn’t really see a difference. Probably won’t buy this.
- @rmsbeauty Un-Cover up concealer. My holy grail concealer. Have a backup thanks to @bangerhead
- @jordansamuelskin Hydrate serum. Well, you probably know what I think of this serum by now. I love it and have a big backup 😍
- @yuliskincare Metamorphic Elixir. It went so fast 😭 I really liked this and might get again.
- @monuskincare Rosewood Reviving Mist. This was like spa in a bottle and smells really nice. Won’t buy a full size but didn’t mind using it.
- @glossier Boy Brow. My holy grail eyebrow product. Will buy again, as soon as my no buy is over.
- @acasiaskincare Lift me up sheet mask. I really loved this sheet mask. Will probably buy again.
- @tataharperskincare Resurfacing mask. I like this mask as it exfoliates gently. Unsure if I would buy it.
- @renskincare V-Cense night cream. I really like ren products but this one unfortunately didn’t work that well for my dry skin but would probably work better for combination/oily skin types.
- @ctilburymakeup Amazing Grace Lipstick. My holy grail lipstick 😭
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
sticky glue feeling , crumbles when trying to apply it even with gently massage it on the skin, when dried it peels off, looks and feels like having a cobweb on thee face 😵
haven’t noticed any difference in my skin, no hydration at all my skin is even drier then before using The Ordinary products.. tried to use the serum with the moisturizer 🛠
The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factor + HA.. it just doesn’t apply well at all, gets stuck in one place and it’s not smooth enough to work it in to the skin, layers on the skin and doesn’t absorb, to thick of a cream that will not apply easily on the skin, this also feels a bit like glue with sticky consistency and the force that is needed to try and apply it on the face, nothing easy, smooth or relaxing about this. the face looks greasy and noticeable sticky to the touch.
Have tried the moisturizer by it self without the serum and it’s the same, so nothing to do with the combination and how they would react with each other. 🚨
Unfortunately I still have a lot of the products left and will do my best to use it up, because it still did cost a bit of money even if it’s not the most expensive products it’s still money spent! 💸
however I do wanna add that every persons skin is different and products that hasn’t work for my skin might work wonders for someone else’s skin. 🙈
My first empties! I think it’s just over a month that I was collecting my beauty trash and this is what I have!
The good: real techniques sponge is one of my favorites I already have another to bring after my eco tools one give out. Essence volume stylist curl and hold mascara with micro styling waxes very good voluminous result also a fave and have a backup. Burt’s bees beeswax lip balm with vitamin e and peppermint super nourishing nice minty flavor makes your lips feel cold after application. Korres pure Greek olive traditional soap cedar bar, it cleans really well without striping my skin, very pleasant mild smell. Apivita cleansing foam with olive and lavender I use it to take my makeup off every day and sometimes to clean my brushes, very deep cleansing doesn’t sting if it gets in my eyes and have and will repurchase again and again!
I don’t think anything was bad but I’m not repurchasing the Mac fix+ (not cruelty free) , makeup forever ultra HD invisible cover concealer (not cruelty free), macadamia deep repair masque (didn’t do much for my curly dry hair, my sister that has normal hair liked it), Palmolive vanilla pleasure body butter wash (I felt it was very moisturizing as it says but for me to much to the point that I felt it didn’t clean my skin), nspa brightening Micro-derma Scrub (it was too ‘soft’ of a scrub for my liking), lush karma soap bar (the smell was very strong, sometimes even too strong), la Roche-Posay cicaplast levres (needed to use with finger towards the end and not cruelty free, trying to find a good c-f lip balm), apivita bee radiant age defense illuminating day cream spf 30 (it would ball up on my skin and clogged my pores if I wore it every day)
I liked all the sheet masks especially the under eye ones, la roche posay effaclar duo+ tester (I can’t buy cause it made my skin burn), septona daily clean cotton pads( just cotton pads nothing special!), aromatics from papoutsanis bath foam (I would buy it but want to try other bath foams too)
A few empties #lilyheartbeautyempties : ☹️ @oskiaskincare micro exfoliating balm. This is my second tub, a gwp. It leaves a greasy layer on my skin which I really disliked. Used it on my body, which is crazy considering the price
🤔 @olehenriksen truth sugar glow polishing mask- this has been discontinued but I just wanted to mention because it smelled so similar to Leahlani’s mermaid mask, but not as nice in texture or results. I don’t see the brand around that much, why would it be?
❤️ @zelensskincare marine complex deep restorative cream- omg, loved this so much and rationed it only allowing myself to use it on tret nights. Why is this so expensive. Why?😫
❤️ @blossomjeju pink camelia soombi blooming face cleanser. This is a favourite, I love the light floral scent, super gentle, extreme good value as you get a ton of product. Definitely recommend if you like a jasmine type scent. #skincareempties#beautyempties#zelens#zelensmarinecomplexdeeprestorativecream#oskiamicroexfoliatingbalm#blossomjejupinkcameliabloomingcleanser#loveskincare#skincarejunkie
Sorry for being so absent! #panned another @ouidad hair product. I bought this in mini to try it out. It smells good and definitely re-wet my curls but I didn’t notice any great benefits for clumping or keeping my ends looking nice. Probably won’t repurchase since conditioner mixed with water has never let me down. Way too expensive for “ehh” or undetectable results.
Good morning everyone! 🍂
I disappeared from instagram, all because my last month in life was chaos..
but today is not about that, now the post is about emptis, which I was supposed to share a month ago😳
I liked all these products and I would buy each one again✨
Day 154 of #365daysofempties . 585. #makeupforever Smoothing Primer - in using this mini, I've realized this smells a lot like the Porefessional, which I don't like. It does work well, though. I just dislike the smell. 586. #zaineylaney Tok3n Spray - this smells AMAZING. I need this back in my life. Scent notes are Wild Berry, Lime, and Chambord. 587. #zaineylaney Game Night Wax - so, turns out, Brian doesn't super enjoy maple based scents. CRAP. Notes are Maple Fudge, Soda, and Chocolate Cupcake. It appears they don't sell this one anymore, though. #empties#emptiesmakemehappy#beautyempties#365daysofsamples
D = declutter. E = empty. 🧚🏿♀️(D) @bobbibrownuk Long Wear even finish foundation. My sister is getting it. 🧚🏿♀️ (D) @esteelauderuk double wear light sample. Something off about this shade on me. 🧚🏿♀️ (D) @maccosmeticsuk Taraji P. Henson lipgloss and lipstick. My sister is getting this.
🧚🏿♀️ (D) @milanicosmetics baked blush, my sister is getting this.
🧚🏿♀️ (D) 2 hair oils that did nothing and a roll on deodorant because I prefer aerosol deodorant.
🧚🏿♀️(D) witch hazel toner in amber bottle. It has alcohol 😩
🧚🏿♀️ (E) @superdrug acetone formula nail polish remover 👍🏿
🧚🏿♀️ (E) @asda baby wipes, I use this to take off my cleansing balm. 👍🏿
🧚🏿♀️ (E) @madescosmetics.nl lip balm 😍
🧚🏿♀️ (E) @dove sensitive deodorant, love dove deodorants! 🧚🏿♀️ (E) @colgate sensitive pro relief extra strength toothpaste🤷🏿♀️
🧚🏿♀️ (D) @revolutionpro eyebrow cushion. There was no pigmentation😒
The Garnier hairspray and texture spray were both good but nothing extraordinary
I don’t know if the NYX primer spray made my makeup last longer so I started using it as a finishing spray kinda like a MAC Fix+ and I liked it better that way but probably won’t repurchase.
The Make Up For Ever HD foundation has gotten so much hype over the years and I think it would be great for people with fairly good skin but I like a little more coverage than this. It gives a nice natural finish though, not matte or dewy.
The NYX No Filter finishing powders are my favoriteeee! I have them in my freelance kit and for myself and I finished this one.
I was going to pass along the NYX Duo Chromatic highlighter but I broke it 😩
Hard Candy Tiki Bronzer is one of my favorite natural highlighters ever! I was holding onto it even though it’s been broken but now my J Cat Baked Bronzer in Coconut Island gives me a very similar effect so I’m finally tossing it.
Milani Supreme Kohl Kajal eyeliner is really good and stays really well. All eyeliners (literally all of them) smudge in my inner corner and it did too but it stayed put everywhere else.
The NYX Butter Glosses are awesome but I needed to make room in my collection and I know I don’t use those colors often. I was holding onto them for nostalgia purposes.
The Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define concealer was good but not quite as good as Tarte Shape Tape which it has been compared to. For such a large bottle, it ran out quicker than I thought. But I would possibly repurchase as my affordable, everyday concealer.
L’Oreal gel eyeliner was good but dried up (NYX’s gel liner is my current fave and doesn’t seem to dry up as quick)
October #empties , some body/haircare empties from last month.
✅ Phytorelax Shampoo Neutro - this was a TK Maxx purchase and I can't find any information about it online. I found it quite drying if I used it every day so I changed to using it once a week as a clarifying shampoo and that worked out much better. It takes forever to use up a litre of shampoo once a week 🙊🙊🙊
✅ Sanex Zero Shower Gel - this unfragranced shower gel was a necessity after I had surgery and didn't want to use any perfumed or irritating products on the scar while it healed. It's a nice enough shower gel but I'm glad to go back to fragranced now it was just too weird washing with a product that has no smell!
✅ Isla Apothecary Neroli Body Oil - this oil smells amazing, I love Neroli! It's extremely moisturising and absorbs without leaving an oily feeling on my skin. A little goes a long way so although it looks like a small bottle it did last several months of twice weekly usage.
✅ Jean Paul Gaultier Classique - a classical powdery scent, it took a while to get used to this as it's different to my usual perfume choice but now it's finished I miss it and will definitely look to repurchase!
