Welcome to my first empties of 2016! Grab a cup of tea as it's going to be a long one!
A couple of these makeup items are from my last Project Pan and I kept it around to use a few more times before tossing! The other items are makeup products that just did not work for me and it's time to clear it out.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer- :) Part of my project pan and really love this as a contour but it's over 4 years old now so tossing it out!
Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb- :) Another item from my project pan. Love the color but the packaging is start to rub off and leave little rubber bits around. I've finished 80% of this product.
Bareminerals Ready Blush in The One- :/ The last item from my project pan, the color was just okay.
Maybelline Babylips - :( I'm not sure everyone's obsession with babylips, I don't like the scent of this at all!
Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner- :( I reviewed this a while back but I wanted to give it a second chance. But it is sooo creamy that it does not stay on and I end up with raccoon eyes!
Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer- :( This made my lashes feel crunchy and since it's white, it always peeks through my mascara.
Stila Cover up Stick- :/ I just didn't get the right shade and this is around 6 years old!
L'Occitane Ultra Rich Lip Balm- :( This DRIED OUT my lips so bad! I was constantly reapplying because my lips were dry but I realized it was this lipbalm that was making it dry!
I have sheet masks from THEFACESHOP (Green Tea and the Rudolph Character Mask) and My Beauty Diary. All three were pretty good but mostly just relaxation with no differences in the skin. :/
THEFACESHOP Mango Seed Cleansing Foam and Heart Volume Butter :) - I enjoyed both, the foam didn't dry out my skin and the lotion was nice and hydrating.
The Garnier Clean Makeup Wipes were just okay :/ but the Cetaphil Cleansing Cloths are my current favorite :). It's so moist and the smaller packaging makes it so convenient to bring around.
LUSH Don't Look at Me - :) This is my first LUSH fresh face mask and this knocked it out of the park! It did go bad pretty fast but it left my skin the next day looking so smooth! Also this little tub lasted me at least 10 uses!
I love David's Tea and all of it's unique flavors. I stocked up during it's Boxing Day Sale so I have some new teas to share.
Cranberry Orange Muffin- :) This is an herbal infusion with cranberries as the first ingredient!
Buddha's Blend- :) Stronger than I expected but a wonderful white and green tea blend.
Buchu Superfruit- :/ I thought I would love this but I think it was a bit too sweet and fruity.
Green Passionfruit- :) Light fruity green tea, my favorite type! I love the little tin too.
A couple more items that I used up including cotton pads, floss and a THEFAESHOP Oil-Drop Anti-Aging Serum which I quite enjoyed. I LOVE the smell of the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter, I thought it would be nutty but it's very fruity!
I threw away a heal salve as I didn't find any uses for it as well as some Impress nails. I do usually like these press on nails but this design was a purple/green duochrome that just didn't look appealing
La Roche Posay Corrective Concentrate- :/ I wanted to lighten some of my dark spots and sometimes I feel like this is starting to work but I think I wasn't using it regularly enough to notice.
Bliss Fabulous Makeup Melt- :( I reviewed it earlier last year and this has a great texture and scent but it stings my eyes when I try to get mascara/eyeliner off.
Burt's Bees Lipbalm- :) Gone through many of these, my holy grail lip balm.
Soap & Glory Hand Food- :/ I've heard so many great things about this brand that I was a little bit disappointed. The scent was artificially sweet and found it a bit greasy.
NYC Big Bold Angel Lash - :) I really enjoy this mascara! Nice light weight mascara that doesn't get crunchy, see review.
DHC Double Protection Mascara- :( At first I really liked it as it separates lashes amazingly and it's small wand is versatile. However when removing this, it is so difficult and has a consistency similar to lash glue!
Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara- :/ Standard mascara that does it's job but nothing too exciting. See review.
NYC Smokin Hot Showtime Volume Mascara- :( Nope, doesn't do anything.
Stila Huge Extreme Mascara- :) This gave me such big lashes but I think it's getting old as it's starting to flake now. See review.
Phew that was quite a bit! Let's see your empties!
