Beauty Empties: January + February

Hey guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today it is time to talk about empties! These are some of my favorite posts to write, so let’s get into it-

Makeup

Becca First Light Priming Filter

This primer is so pretty on the skin and it really does hydrate and give you a glow. It keeps my skin from feeling and looking dry under foundations. I’ve already repurchased!

Tarte Gifted Mascara

I wasn’t jazzed about this mascara in my original review, but it is gorgeous once it dries out a little. It is easy to work with, it is volumizing, it is super black, it doesn’t get everywhere throughout the day, I would repurchase!

Tarte Tartiest Mascara

I really enjoyed this mascara while I had it, but I don’t miss it at all. It makes your lashes really black, but sometimes can really clump them up. I don’t want to spend $20 on this mascara, so I won’t repurchase. Continue reading “Beauty Empties: January + February”

Beauty Empties: November – December

Hey guys, welcome back to our blog! Today I want to share with you my beauty empties for the month of November and December.

Makeup:

Butter London Plush Rush lip gloss in Free-fall – This was a gorgeous gloss! For me these seem quite similar to Buxom’s formula, and I enjoy those glosses just a little more, so I wouldn’t rebuy this.

LA colors lip gloss in clear – This is the best thick and hydrating clear gloss. I always put it over liquid lipsticks and I miss it a ton! Definitely going to repurchase.

It cosmetics Hello Light Cream Highlighter – I used this up this year. I repurchased it already, I love it. It is the perfect cream highlight for everyday!

Dr.Hauschka stick corrector in shade 01 – I did like this concealer but the shade was way too pink for me. I like the formula but I think I can find something better. Wouldn’t repurchase!

EOS lip balm – EOS is not cruelty free so I would not repurchase! But I also don’t feel like this hydrates my lips much at all, so I wouldn’t recommend these balms.

NYX Worth the Hype Mascara – I love this mascara! I cannot wait to go repurchase it, I like the consistency and the effect it gives to my lashes.

NYX Microbrow pencil in taupe- This eyebrow pencil was lovely. I just ran out of it this morning and I am going to repurchase it today because (not to be dramatic here) I can’t live without it.

Skincare:

Burts Bees Facial Cleansing towelettes – These were really good makeup wipes! I mostly used them for swatches and I would definitely repurchase.

SheaMoisture Youth Infusing Mud Mask – This mud mask kind of dried out my skin, I’m not sure how I felt about it and I wouldn’t repurchase. Continue reading “Beauty Empties: November – December”

Beauty Empties: July-August

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! I managed to finish a lot of beauty products these last two months since I was attempting to get rid of some of my products before I moved into college dorms. I just moved in a week ago and I’m having fun at college, although I am sad to be away from Christine!

Let’s get into the empties:

Makeup:

NYX Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake – This is my favorite lip gloss of all time and I love it! I finished it off and I have already repurchased.

Moon Valley Organics Beeswax Lip Balm – This lipbalm I found at the health food store and it was okay but it was super oily which I was not a fan of. I wouldn’t repurchase this.

Butter London Wink Matte Liquid Eyeliner in Brown Sugar – This eyeliner was really nice! I would definitely repurchase it in the black shade, I don’t usually wear brown liner.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner – I really enjoyed this eyeliner. This is something I definitely would repurchase. It is super black and really does stay on all day!

Skincare:

Terremere Tea and Aloe Hydrating Cleanser – I really enjoyed this cream cleanser. It really took off my makeup nicely and it left my face feeling fresh. It is super expensive if I can’t find it on Hautelook, so I wouldn’t repurchase.

Mychelle Pure Harmony cleanser – This cream cleanser was also really nice. This was really gentle on my skin and I did enjoy it, but I feel like I could find something better for cheaper, so I wouldn’t repurchase!

Evan Healy Lavender Facial Tonic Hydrosoul – This was a toner sort of product and I did like what it did for my skin, just it was very heavily scented and it really began to bother me, so I would not buy the full size of this.

Ean Healy Pomegranate Repair Serum – This serum was really thick and moisturizing, but this one happened to give me some clogged pores, and it didn’t make my skin glow the way it does with other serums.  I wouldn’t buy the full size.

Beautycounter Nourishing Night Cream – This was so lovely and hydrating! These beauty counter products were gifted to us by an instagram friend (@betterbeauty101). I really enjoyed this night cream and I would buy a full size!

Beautycounter Nourishing Eye Cream – This was a nice eye cream, it felt good on the skin and I really enjoyed using this sample, but I’ve just bought the Derma-e one and I want to use that up before I buy a full size of this, so maybe I’d repurchase in the future!

Haircare:

I know I never use up haircare anything but I finally put my mind to it and I have four empties!

NH hotels Soft Mask – I definitely stole this from the hotel I was at in Spain but I loved this hair mask and I wish there was somehow I could buy it again because it made my hair so soft!

Aveda Invati Advanced Exfoliating Shampoo – This was a really good shampoo for getting all the buildup out of my roots. I really enjoyed it and it didn’t make my hair frizzy so I would definitely buy the full size!

Aveda Invati Advanced Thickening Conditioner – This conditioner was very volumizing but it wasn’t moisturizing enough for my hair personally so I would not repurchase it, but I would recommend it if you are looking for volume!

Paul Mitchell The Detangler Conditioner – This conditioner was a very watery consistency and it was really hydrating and lovely but I still prefer my Mop conditioner so I would not buy this one!

Bodycare:

Sparituals Passionfruit Agave Vegan Nourishing Sugar Scrub – This was a gift, I loved it and I really enjoyed it and I was going to repurchase it until I saw the price tag. $50 is not something I can afford at all as a college student!

That is it for my empties! I hope you guys enjoyed this post. It is ridiculously long! Let me know something you’ve finished down below in the comments!

Beauty Empties: May-June!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog, today I’m going to share all the products I finished in the last couple months. Lets get into it:

Makeup:


w3ll people expressionist mascara – This is one of my favorite mascaras, it is very black and gives you long defined lashes that are very fluttery and natural. Definitely need to repurchase!

Smashbox Brow Tech to go in Taupe – I really enjoyed this, but after finishing two full sizes I’m just over it, and I’m going to try something else!

Physicians formula Eye booster eyeliner – This has a very thin and watery formula. I prefer my other eyeliner pens so would not repurchase!

Skincare:


Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum – I’ve been loving this for my skin lately! It makes me really glowy and gets rid of any dryness. Picking up the full size for sure.

Burts Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes – These were nice makeup removing wipes, if you are looking for some you might like these. I have a makeup eraser though and because it is less wasteful than wipes I’m going to stick to that instead!

Burts Bees Flavor Crystals Lip Balm – This was a lovely lip balm. It kept my lips moisturized, smelled like pineapple, would repurchase!

Beauty Empties: March – April

Hello guys! Sorry for leaving for a few weeks, Christine did a lovely job holding down the fort!

Choosing which college to attend in the fall was such a huge decision and it sucked up all my time. I just committed to a college in California and I could not be happier, so I’m back to blogging!

Anyways, lets jump into the beauty empties:

Makeup:


Bareminerals Touch Up Veil in Translucent – This powder was really lovely and it has spf 15, but no flashback. I would repurchase this in the future!

Physicians Formula Eye Pencil in Black – This eye pencil was just okay, it didn’t stay in the waterline so I wouldn’t repurchase.

Skincare:


Vapour Beauty Clarity Cleansing Oil – I really like this, it is so lightweight and takes off your makeup really well. I already repurchased!

Acure Purifying Fruit Peel – This was amazing, it really got the top layer of dead skin off and left me glowing. I also really love this skincare brand  and I would definitely repurchase!

Pacifica Dreamy Youth Day and Night Face Cream – This was just okay, it wasn’t anything stand out and I’d recommend it if you just need something that will give you lightweight moisture for a cheap price. Continue reading “Beauty Empties: March – April”

Empties: January and February

Hello guys! Today I’m going to share my empties from January and February. This is going to be a little bit long, so lets get into it:

Makeup:

Vapour Beauty Chapstick – This was a good chapstick, but it is also so expensive, more than I would ever pay for a lip balm, so would not repurchase!

Smashbox Photo Finish Lash Primer – I would definitely repurchase! When I was using this my lashes would feel healthy even with me wearing mascara every day and now my lashes feel more brittle without that primer barrier between them and mascara!

Emoji Lip Balm – I wouldn’t repurchase because the scent was so strong and artificial!

Laura Geller Marble Lipstick in Vista- I really like her marble lipsticks but I would not repurchase this shade, it was a little too warm toned for me and made my teeth look very yellow.

Body Care:

Philosophy Pure Grace Body Cream – This is a brand you would think would be cruelty free but it actually is not, I was fooled for a while. I would not repurchase just because of their cruelty free status!

Noniko Deodorant Sample – I liked this, it it kept me from sweating or smelling during the day. I couldn’t find anything on their cruelty free status though, so I will wait to purchase a full size!

Miscellaneous:

Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleaner – THIS didn’t seem to fully clean my brushes so I would not repurchase.

Skincare and Samples:

Terremere coconut and jojoba moisturizer – If I saw this on hautelook again for super cheap I would one hundred percent repurchase! This is so good if you have dry skin!

Jurlique Activating Water Essence – I did like this, but I would not purchase a full size because it isn’t cruelty free!

Jurlique Eye Contour Balm -If you like jurlique products and you are looking for a new eye cream, I would look into this one, it’s lovely! For me personally though, i would not purchase a full size.

Acure Eye Cream – This wasn’t hydrating enough for me, but it was very light and airy. If you are more oily skinned and want something super light you might like this. Wouldn’t repurchase!

Acure Moroccan Face Oil – This felt very heavy on my skin and it did clog my pores, I would not purchase a full size!

Acure Sensitive Facial Cream – This is so moisturizing and I am loving it, it is more of a balm consistency but melts onto your skin. I would definitely purchase a full size!

Acure Seriously Glowing Facial Serum – This was nice, but I like the Evan Healy rose serum better, so I am going to purchase a full size of that one, not this one!

Can you guys tell I am trying to reign in my sample drawer? I have way too many! I hope you enjoyed this empties post, there will be another one coming in April!

Makeup:


Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara – I love this! Won’t repurchase because it isn’t cruelty free.

Bobbi Brown No Smudge Mascara – I liked this, it was meh. Won’t repurchase.

Smashbox Brow Architect in the shade Taupe – I love this! The brow gel is my favorite, doesn’t leave your brows crunchy but they stay on all day, repurchased already!

Jane Iredale Lip Drink Lip Balm – This left a weird white cast on my lips, even though it was just a balm, I would not buy it again.

Burts Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm – I liked this scent, and I love their lip balms, I’ve already repurchased.

Skincare:
