April - May 2015 Empties


I was able to finish up quite a few products this month, there was only 2 products that I just gave up on and threw away because I recently found it at my parents, which means I haven't used it in about 3+ years so it's time to part ways and say goodbye. To see what I loved and disliked - please continue reading. I'll also let you know whether I will be repurchasing them as well below.

1. Dior Show Mascara - samples
Will not be repurchasing, of the Dior line, I like the Iconic Overcurl the best

2.  Maybelline Great Lash - Lots of Lashes
Will not repurchase. I HATE this line, the original was way better this brush was massive, it was fat on one end, and thin/pointed in the end, it barely got between my top and bottom lashes and the long bristles did nothing to build or separate my lashes.



3. Temptu Hilighter - sample
Will not be purchasing, it gave too much of an iridescent sheen that was kind of greenish gold and silver.

4. Seche Vite Quick Dry Topcoat
Will not repurchase as you all know my holy grail top coat is the Nails Inc Caviar Top Coat. It does not become thick overtime as quickly as the Seche Vite does.

5. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Basecoat
Will not repurchase. It was a good base coat, but does not live up to the claims of hardening my nails. So far I'm liking the Nails Inc Kale Basecoat or the Seche Vite fortifier basecoat.

6. Philosophy - Animal Cracker Shampoo, Conditioner and Shower Gel
Will not repurchase. This was such an impulse buy for me because I had a $10 gift certificate at The Bay plus it smelled divine but really it wasn't worth the price tag.

7. Urban Decay Perversion - Sample
May repurchase, but I want to see what else is on the market since new ones always come out.

8. Sephora - Eyeliner Pencil (purple)
Will not repurchase. Got this as a 100 pt perk. It was not smooth and did not work well.

9. Diorskin - Nude Foundation
May repurchase depending on what other types of foundation come out in the market. This was really good, sheer to medium coverage and gave you a nice dewy finish.

10. Saje - Tree Scents
Will repurchase. Love this for my diffuser! I'm on my 3rd one now!

11. Clarins - Instant Light Perfector - Sample
Will not repurchase. This was kind of like the Temptu sample, gave too much iridescent glow, not my cup of tea, I like a sheer shimmer like the Guerlain liquid meterorite primer.

12. Sephora - Soothing Cleanser Milk
Will not repurchase. It was good when it lasted, I got it on clearance during the VIB Sale in November, however it was too oily feeling and left my skin with a film. I prefer cleansers that make me feel refreshed and tingly.

13. Revlon - Lip Butter
Will repurchase, but at a later time. I have too much lip products right now. This offers a sheer, but buildable, color on your lips.

14. Graydon Skincare - Hair Smoothie
Will definitely repurchase. I actually ended up getting a litre bottle. It has helped me grow alot of baby hair and added volume to my roots. A little goes a long way, don't be fooled. When I first used this, I used 2-3 pumps thinking it wasn't working because it doesn't have your typical conditioner texture where it's slippery.

15. Bath and Body Works - Garden Herb Handsoap
I bought lots of backup of this because for me, it is very difficult to find a scent that I like at BBW. I find most smells too sweet and packs too much of a punch. I prefer the calmer, lighter and cleaner scents.

16. NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer
May repurchase. I understand the hype of this product, it is really good - however there's alot of other concealer products I want to try to see if I can find my holy grail product. The next one I want to get is the Cle de Peau one.

17. Stila - retractable eyeliner
Will not repurchase. It wasn't creamy, it wasn't purple enough, it just didn't work for me.

18. MAC - Margin Blush
May repurchase, however, being a blush hoarder and lover, my heart just commit to one blush.

19. MAC - Studio Sculpt Concealer
Will not repurchase. It was too thick and creased.

20. Turqoise liquid liner from Ipsy Bag (forgot the brand)
Will not repurchase, the turquoise liner was patchy and wasn't pigmented. It was sheer and took alot of layering, in which case it bunched up and looked horrible. Also, the smell was quite chemically.

What were some of your empties? I'd love to know!
Until next time, XO - M.

    1. Hi Angela! Would love it if you followed me on Bloglovin if you have that! :) I will be sure to check out your empties as well. I was determined to finish up my products as soon as I could, and part ways with things I knew I'd never be able to finish or use up because I didn't like em. Sometimes you just gotta say bye :(

      Yes I'm trying super hard to slim down my collection this year. I did an inventory count at the start of the year so we'll see how it goes! :D
