I’m not the type of person to go through makeup quickly. I like to savor the purchase, and use up every last ounce of it so I can get my moneys worth. So it’s not common that I go through an entire product. I did notice this month, however, that I had quite a few products that were nearing the end of their life, so I decided to make an empties post! I made sure to talk about my thoughts on the product and if I would repurchase, too, so it’s also like a mini review.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
This is definitely my favorite drugstore mascara. I love the shape of the wand, because it allows me to get thick lashes or long lashes, depending on how I hold it. It doesn’t get too clumpy, or shed onto my lower lash line like some mascaras do. This is the best mascara that I have used from the drugstore, and one of my top 3 of all time, so I would 100% recommend this to anyone!
L’Oreal Infallible Liquid Liner
So this is a liner that I picked up quite awhile ago. I only used it for about two weeks before I had to stop because it dried out. I actually really like the felt tip of this, I find it really easy to work with, and it makes applying a cat eye super easy. At first the liner was really black, but after a few uses it turned more gray, so I had to layer it with another liner to get my desired color. I don’t think I’ll be purchasing this again, simply because it dried out so quickly. My Stila liner lasted almost six months, where as this didn’t even last one, so it is more cost effective to buy a higher quality one that can actually last.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner
This is, hands down, my favorite liquid liner. The tip of it is so easy to work with, it’s not too long or too short and it doesn’t dry out at the end. The liner is so black, and doesn’t fade at all throughout the day. I was able to use this for about six months before I had to part with it because it had finally dried out. I will definitely be repurchasing this in the future when my Kat Von D liner runs out.
Mario Badesku Drying Lotion
This product isn’t actually empty, but I had to get rid of it because the clear liquid is gone, so I can’t use it anymore. This is my holy grail skin care product, I’ve already purchased my replacement because I literally can’t be without it.
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
This mascara isn’t exactly empty, but I’ve had it for way longer than 3 months, so it’s time to part ways with it. This is one of my favorite mascaras, it does the best job at separating and lengthening my lashes. I love layering this with mascaras that are more clumpy because it gives me the best results. I definitely will be repurchasing this mascara once my current one runs out.
Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara
This is my favorite mascara ever. I cannot rave about it enough. It makes my lashes look so long and thick and dark. It doesn’t smudge in the humidity or flake off during the day. This is definitely one that gets better with age, but it’s still amazing at any time. I will probably be replacing this within the month because I can’t live without it.
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes
I picked these up on a whim one day because I had heard a lot of people talk about them. I normally use the Neutrogena ones, but wanted to branch out. Honestly, I can’t see much of a difference between these and my normal ones. If anything, these are a little dryer than the Neutrogena ones. They still work really well at getting off makeup, but honestly nothing incredible. I’ll probably pick these up again at some point, but I’m not running out to replace them immediately.
Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner
This is seriously the best eyeliner for tight lining your eyes. I have tried so many different eyeliners, ranging from high end to drugstore, and none of them even come close to this one. It’s really affordable, only $12, and lasts me 4-5 months. It doesn’t completely disappear as the day goes on, and it doesn’t transfer onto my lower lid like so many others do. I actually have a stash of about 3 of these on backup, so I never run out (kinda crazy, I know, but what can I say? I’m an eyeliner girl!)
Do you have any product empties this month?
