I’ve been wanting to write an empties post for a while- they remind me of old school days of Youtube and blogging. Other than toiletries, I don’t usually run through a lot of products! I’ve just been trying so many things that it takes a while to actually run out. Moisturizer? About 7 on the go. Bronzer? Still haven’t hit pan. Lipstick? Too many to count. Finally this month I decided to do a makeup no-buy so I could actually use things up and shop my stash. Read below to see my empties and what I would repurchase.
MY PRODUCT EMPTIES:
NYX Cosmetics Micro Brow Pencil in ‘Taupe’
-My ride or DIE dupe for the ABH Brow Wiz. Read my full review here.
Would I repurchase? Already have ;).
Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Brow Pencil
-Easy to use and love the packaging but after a week of use the formula got really stiff and was less smooth to apply. Read my comparison review here.
Would I repurchase? No, not worth the $$$ to me.
Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer in ‘Cafe Con Leche’
-A makeup bag classic, I go back to this concealer again and again for max under-eye coverage. It’s beautiful over dewy concealer and trouble spots, but can be a bit heavy when combined with full coverage concealer. Read my review here.
Would I repurchase? Already have!
The Ordinary ‘Buffet’
-A great, affordable serum for day or night. I didn’t see any drastic results with this, but for $15 its a good product and I enjoyed using it.
Would I repurchase? If I don’t find something else I like more, probably!
Sephora Collection Ultra Precision Liquid Eyeliner
-I’ve been buying this since I was 14 years old. I love the inkwell style and feel like I get more colour payoff and more control than with eyeliner pens.
Would I repurchase? Yes! A million times yes!
Duo Brush-On Eyelash Adhesive
-Who hasn’t tried his brand? While I find the brush on glue easier to use than their traditional tubes, this format dried out faster. Also, the signature fishy smell is ever present….
Would I repurchase? Maybe, it’s a good drugstore glue but I do notice occasional lifting.
Saturday Skin Rise + Shine Gentle Cleanser
-I tried this out by fluke because I thought the packaging was cute. This cleanser is great though! Super gentle yet effective. It foams up wonderfully when used with my Foreo Luna 2.
Would I repurchase? I want to try other products first but this IS great so yes.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
-Since I discovered this contains alcohol near the end of the ingredients, I’ve been using it as a setting spray instead! Wonder why Urban Decay All Nighter works so well? Alcohol. I stopped buying that and have been using this instead. It’s like a 2-in-1 spa treatment and setting spray.
Would I repurchase? It’s an addiction. Can’t stop won’t stop.
All in all not a bad bunch of product empties! Have you tried any of these products?
