First off, I would like to say that I just reached 100 followers and that was the coolest! When I started the blog I had wanted to blog everyday but life got in the way and since I have started blogging again, I have had so much fun. I love reading other bloggers’ content as much as I enjoy sharing my own. So thanks to everyone for stopping by ❤
Next up, this is my first empties post – woot, woot! I have probably said it 100 times over that I am trying to use and reduce my collection, get rid of things I never use and maybe train myself out of impulse purchases 😉 Easier said than done but I don’t think I did too shabby – to the empties!
To start, two skincare items: Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Eye Cream, this is a very nice eye cream but I didn’t notice any reduction of fine lines and this is my 3rd or 4th tube. I will not be repurchasing this one, I have another rose cream on order and will see if the results differ!
Mario Badescu’s Drying Mask, yuck. While this mask is super effective at zapping whatever you got going on, it stinks like petrol. It is formulated with sulfur but I hardly noticed that at all, I felt like I was swimming in fossil fuels. It took me ages to get through this tub because it was so potent – good and bad, I felt like it started to separate towards the last few uses but you get a lot of bang for your buck.
Next up, Urban Decay’s Brightening and Tightening Complexion Primer Potion. Will I be repurchasing? Yasssssss – this stuff makes any foundation look amazing. I use it when my face is looking a little dull or dehydrated and it is just amazing. It tightens pores and imparts a healthy glow, by far one my of my favourite primers.
I apparently needed a lot of concealer this last month 😉 In my defense, some of these took me ages to get through. I have already communicated my dislike for NakedSkin concealer and will not be repurchasing. I really like the Under Eye Brightener from BECCA but purchased something lighter for the summer, I will seek this one back out in the winter. The BareMinerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer is a keeper and I have already purchased another tube!
Two more products from Urban Decay, NakedSkin Beauty Balm which I love and will now have to order from their website, I sincerely hope this one does not get discontinued but it looks that way 😦 And this lovely tube of Naked Ultra Nourishing Gloss in Walk of Shame that I will not be repurchasing until I have used up the 5 other tubes of this gloss that I have (oops). I really like this colour it is a nice rosy pink and it smells pleasantly minty.
Lastly, two more skincare items – Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray that I keep everywhere and will definitely be purchasing again. This charming spray is amazingly refreshing and so affordable! And of course LUSH’s Grease Lightning that is a must have in my beauty cabinet.
That is it! I had wanted to get through a foundation or two but it just was not meant to be. A few palettes that I have had hanging around for too long are also on my ‘Empties Bucket List’ and I will keep working away at them. Thanks for stopping by!
