Empties #5

Another 2 months, another empties post. I love reading empties post because you really get to know how the person got on with the products as they finished them all. This month I finished off a few makeup bits which was exciting. So I hope you enjoy!

Makeup & Nails

NARS Radient Creamy Concealer - You can see how well loved this is. As I was coming to the end of it, I dropped it and the top broke, but it revealed all this hidden concealer under the top, which meant it lasted for a whole other month! I love this concealer, it just does such a great job at multitasking. Would I Repurchase? Yes.

Sally Hansen Double Duty Base & Top Coat - This was great as it was both a base and top coat. I didn't finish it but it got too goopy and became to hard to be able to properly coat my nails. Would I Repurchase? Yes.

Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer - This was the first primer I ever got, when I was getting my makeup done at Napoleon Perdis for my Year 12 Ball. It was a good primer but I think I've found better ones now for my skin. Would I Repurchase? No.

Benefit The Porefessional - Everyone seems to be divided on this. Some people say it's their holy grail while others hate it. I was on the fence. It was good, but it wasn't great. I didn't really find a difference with using this to my other primers. Would I Repurchase? No.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer - This concealer was great. So easy to use and it didi really well at covering dark circles. Also, it didn't crease. Would I Repurchase? Yes.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid - I love this foundation! Not only is it pale enough for me but the coverage is great and sits well on my skin. I'm not going to repurchase this year because I have to finish other foundations, but I definitely will. Would I Repurchase? Yes. 

Rimmel Winder'Full Mascara With Argan Oil - This was a good mascara but it wasn't great. I loved the brush but the formula was really wet, and I found it transferred to under my eyes during the day. Would I Repurchase? No.

Clinique Quickliner For Eyes Intense in 01 Intense Black - This was my mum's but she gave it to me because I needed it for a costume for my halloween concert. After I used it, the product inside broke so I couldn't use it anymore. It was good, but there are other better eyeliners out there. Would I Repurchase? No.

Napoleon Perdis Camera Finish Powder Foundation - This was another product I got when I was getting my ball makeup done. It was good, but then I found other powders that worked better for me. Would I Repurchase? No.


Batiste Dry Shampoo - This is a standard in every empties. I particularly love this scent. Will I Repurchase? Of course.

Cynthia Sylvia Stout Beer Shampoo - The scent for me wasn't the greatest but I could see and feel a difference with my hair. It made it a lot softer and helped combat the frizziness as I dry my hair naturally. Will I Repurchase? Yes.


Soap & Glory Clean On Me Shower Gel - I didn't really like the scent of this. I think I prefer the fruity ones but it was nice and creamy. Would I Repurchase? No.

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel - This is probably my favourite all time shower gel. The smell is amazing, it lathers up really well, and leaves me feeling squeaky clean. Would I Repurchase? Yes.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub: Ugh, this scent! It's just so great and perfect for a morning wake up. Also, the actual scrub aka the important bit, is great. It's not got fine granules which is good because I want a heavy duty exfoliant. Will I Repurchase? Yes.

 Harajuku Lovers Perfume in Love - This was my first perfume. It was one I used on special occasions. What's funny is for my last birthday, my friend got me another one and she didn't realise I had it but it's great that I have a back up now. Would I Repurchase? No.


Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes - Just the standard in every empties. These are really gentle on my face and there is no irritation after. Would I Repurchase? Yes.

Lush Tea Tree Water - This is such a great toner. I use it by spritzing my face with it after cleansing, and it soothes the face. Also, along with this product, I've noticed a difference in my skin. Would I Repurchase? Yes.

Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover - This is so great at taking off my makeup. It doesn't irritate my eyes like other oil based makeup removers. Would I Repurchase? Yes.

Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser - I love this moisturiser and I already have a replacement one. It didn't leave a residue on my skin and I feel like it's improved the clarity of my skin. Would I Repurchase? Yes.

Aesop Control Gel - This was a nice gentle gel to put on top of my spots. It soothed them and didn't dry out the skin surrounding them. Would I Repurchase? Yes.

Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes - I had high hopes for these but they didn't work for me. They stung my face and didn't wipe off the makeup. Because the towels were so moist, they just swished the makeup around my face. Would I Repurchase? No.
