Empties 2016 #4 August-October

It's been so long since I've done an empties post! I have a ton of goodies to show today. I can't believe there's only 2 more months in 2016. Where does the time go?? I'll be working extra hard on finishing up some more product before the year is up. But let's get on to what I've been collecting for the past 3 months.


-Revlon Mascaras :/ I did a full review post on these earlier this year. I like the red and pink mascara the best. The red I finished up is in blackened brown so I can't wait to use the same in blackest black which will produce even better results!

-Joe Fresh Lash Focus Mascara :) I love this one so much! It creates the biggest lashes and really
opens up my eyes.

-The Body Shop Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer :( This is an orange colored cream but once blended out it really doesn't do much.

-Softlips Luxe :/ Nice lip balm but a bit too heavily coconut scented for me. My boyfriend finished this.

-Skoah Lip Love :/ A clear lip balm that was okay. My boyfriend finished this too. He's doing a good job cracking down my lip balm collection haha.

-Smashbox Photo Finish Shadow Primer :/ I got this in a Sephora kit about 1.5 years ago. It's great for making shadows last longer and pop but the applicator makes it so difficult to squeeze out the right amount of product. It feels very thick and a ton of product would come out.

-Smashbox Eyeliner in Onyx :/ I've been using this for 3 years! It's a good liner but nothing too crazy. It's more of a gritty formula so it stays for a long time but requires a bit tugging.

-Formula X Base Coat :) I also got this in the same Sephora kit 1.5 years ago. I really enjoy this and this helps to improve the longevity of my nails. I used a good chunk of this before it went gloopy.


-OGX Thick & Fall Shampoo & Conditioner :) I loved this set. The smell is addictive, very luxurious. It keeps my hair clean and moisturized.

-Dermaquest Hydrating Serum :/ This was a nice lightweight serum and provides additional moisture. It was good but nothing special. You can get it from Lift.

-The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel :) Pretty standard shower gel but the smell is AMAZING

-Thefaceshop Seaweeds Moisurizing Pack :/ Was a nice lightweight water pack but nothing too special. I've had this for less than a year so I'm super excited to use something up early for once!

-Thefaceshop Mini Pet Floral :) How cute is this hand cream?! Nothing special with the cream but the packaging is so cute and would be great for the office desk.


I really enjoyed the Cetaphil Cleansing Cloths and am sad this is the last pack I have. The Almay ones were not that great. I also discovered two new teas from David's Tea that are great for fall: Pumpkin Chai and Nutty by Nature


-ELF Glossy Gloss :) I really like these as it gives a plushy feel on the lips and is quite pigmented. I reviewed them here. But as I've had it for 3+ years, it's starting to smell funny so decluttering.

-Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain :/ I barely used this but it's a pretty nude color. It's now lumpy so it's got to go. 2 years old.

-Rimmel Moisture Renewal Lipstick :/ These used to be my favorite lipsticks from the drugstore. But now drugstore formulation is a lot better and I think these are average. I think this is 4+ years old!

-NYC Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil :/ This was quite nice and a bright blue. However it dried out and broke, only about 1 year.

-Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner :/ I wanted a nude liner for my inner rim but this didn't last long before it broke. Also I found the color not that flattering.

-Diorshow Mascara :) I found this in my mom's purse and made sure she no longer put this on her eyes. It's at least 3+ years old!!! I remember this to be a good mascara though

-NYC Big Bold Volume Mascara :( This is my second one that I've received. It's a rubber bristle which I don't like and I don't see big volume.

-Saje Sun Sense :/ A light sunscreen with SPF15. It's a nice natural scent but I find it has a bit of a white cast and at SPF15 there really shouldn't be. I've only had it for a year but since it's natural ingredients I want to declutter this.

-Revlon Powder Blush :( I won this in a prize 2 years ago and it has no color pay off.

-Liquid Palisade :( This is suppose to be a paint you put around your nails to avoid nail polish getting on your skin. I couldn't get this to work but it is now being sold at Sephora!

-Joe Fresh Universal Beauty Balm :( The packaging broke during shipping so I wasn't able to properly use it. But the product feels sticky and I wouldn't really like this for moisturizing.

-Essence Eyeshadow Palettes :( The candies had two broken pans and no color pay off. The nudes palette only has two shades with pay off (bottom two deep shades)

Good job for those who made it till the end! I'm going to empty out all these items in the garbage now which is probably the best feeling after the sound of acrylic makeup packaging hitting each other.
