Empties: March

I can hardly call it March empties anymore 10 days later. But here are my efforts for the past month and a bit! I'm pretty excited to finally be finishing up some products.

Make Up Related

ELF Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths
I got this in January from my ELF haul and I love this! Already repurchased. It's a lifesaver when I'm too lazy to wash my face after a long night and it takes all the makeup off!

Stila Lip Glaze in Jingle
This was part of the All is Bright lip glaze set and the second one I finished. It was a nice pink-coral color but nothing too exciting.

Etude House 44 Dark Circle Concealer
I've had this for around 4 years but I haven't used it recently. This was really good because it has a yellow tone so it matched my Asian skin better. Would recommend.

Korres Antiageing Primer
This was the first primer I've ever used and I got it from Winners last August. I really liked the smell and the texture. Not sure if it had any anti-ageing properties, and noticed minimal increase in wear time.


David's Tea in Goji Pop
Love this flavor! Was so fruity and fresh.

David's Tea in Sencha Ashikubo
This was a very normal flavor surprisingly. It didn't wow me.

Vichy Youth Power Serum
Got this as a sample and it was a nice texture. Didn't notice any difference. I'm always skeptical about serums.

Calgon Body Mist in Hawaiian Ginger
Thank god I'm done with this! I used to like this scent in high school but not a fan of it anymore.

Tossed Away

MAC Paint Pot in Barestudy
This is a beautiful shade but unfortunately it's all dried out. I tried microwaving and blow drying it but nothing worked :( Going to keep the container for back 2 mac. But definitely would recommend.

MAC Eyeshadow in Tilt
Another product that's just too old. I got this from a friend so I don't know how old it is exactly but with the older packaging it must be around 10 years! Yuck. The color is also too bright for me to wear and is a duochrome which I'm not a fan of. Maybe I can back 2 mac this too?

Wet n Wild Lipstick in Just Peachy
Read my review on why this sucked :(

So there it is!! I'm slowly but surely downsizing my makeup collection to things I would actually use. My birthday just passed last week and I haven't even bought or received anything new makeup related! Big change from last year haha. Link me to your empties post! I would love to read it :)


  1. What a shame about the Wet n Wild lipstick, I love the colour!
    I've followed you on bloglovin and GFC, just wondering if you would like to follow back too?:)

    Belle Epoque

  2. Thanks for the comment on my blog :)
    I followed you with GFC :)
    Follow me back? <3


  3. Good on you for using up/throwing away so many products! I'm always happy when I've used something up or had a clear out. xo

    1. Haha thanks! Yea I realized I was keeping stuff around just for my "collection" and I should clean things up a bit!

  4. Hi! Thank you for following my blog and now I followed you back. Anyway, I'm quite interested with MAC Bare Study. How long does it with you? because it looks drying out and through you picture above making me feel like not buying more than one Mac paint pot at one time. hahah.

    1. Yea it's super dried out but that's cause I had it for around 3 years. Maybe you can get a couple but store them upside down? I heard that helps keep it from drying out.

  5. Thank you for the follow sweetie!!! I am following you back on GFC and bloglovin as well, do you have a twitter account I can follow you on that as well hehe.

    Omgosh I would love to read about your 50 Pho Challenge! I mean just Vancouver alone has soooo many good Pho restaurants if you are doing it I wouldnt mind showing you a couple of good Pho restaurants if your up for eating with a stranger hahaha

    Anyways good luck and I cant wait to read about it!


    1. HAHA sure! That'd be quite interesting and fun! Let's keep in touch about that. I just have to get through 2 more weeks of finals studying :(

      I usually eat at Pho Lan or Thai Son in Richmond, have you been to those two?
