Product Empties September 2019

Hey guys! Remember last product empties post I said I would post more often so there would be less products in one post? Ya that didn’t happen… today we have sixteen products! I honestly think I’m going to turn this into a monthly series in order to shorten these posts. On the plus side I am really proud of myself! I have been making a conscious effort to finish up half-used products, these posts really show that I have been doing that! So without further ado, my empties:

So starting off with lip balm, I have three empties. I’m really bad at having multiple lip balms all over the place, so I’m trying to whittle my collection down. First I still had the old version of the Bite Beauty Agave lip balm (there new one is called Agave+). I won’t ramble on about the old formula since it’s not available anymore, but I do like the new formula. I also finished up a mini sample of the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. This mini sample took me almost a year to finish, I’m sure the large size would last forever. I already have another mini of the grapefruit flavour, but I would personally suggest their balm over the mask. Finally, my favourite lip balm is the Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm. It’s super light weight on the lips but also super moisturizing. And it’s like $3 for a two pack, which is way cheaper than the other two I finish. Nivea is my ride-or-die, I have seven littered around my house.

Next empty is something that doesn’t exist anymore. I got an NYX single shadow in a holiday kit, and I finished the eyeshadow! It was a bone coloured creme, and I used it to set my eye primer every single day. I’m not sure if the quality of other NYX shadows are similar, but based on this single shadow I would purchase a palette of theirs.

Sticking with the drugstore, I finished my Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless powder. This was the first powder I purchased, about three years ago. I like this powder way more than their loose setting powder. It is just so buttery and creamy, and doesn’t leave your face looking cakey. I did decided to repurchase this powder because I really do like it. I don’t necessarily use it everyday, but it is create for touch ups. I highly recommend, best drugstore powder in my opinion!

Next up is pair of lashes – the Lashaholic Instaglam lashes. These ones are finally too full of mascara and lash glue to be worn anymore. But I friggin loved these lashes. I got them in a Boxycharm box once I just feel in love. I like them because they are very fluffy and not too full, so it is still possible to see the eye look behind the lashes. I also have hooded eyes, and I find that they just suited my eye shape so well. I would love to repurchase these, but it’s not just very economical of me to buy one pair of lashes from an American website. I will thoroughly miss these though.

Now to take a break from makeup, I have some skincare products. If you are new here, check out my last products empties post, I have already reviewed the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser and the Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Mattifying Lotion. You can tell I love these products just by the fact that I have already finished them again since my last product empties post.

Another skincare product is a sample of the GlamGlow Supermud Activated Charcoal Treatment mask. I know this is one of the most popular charcoal face masks on the market, but I have to be honest – I didn’t like it that much. It made my face feel really tingly and tight afterwards. While it did a good job of cleaning out my pores, it did nothing for my active breakouts. It also smells like licorice – not my favourite scent.

Next up I have three setting sprays, because I go through setting sprays like water. From the drugstore I have the Milani Make It Last setting spray and the NYX Dewy Finish Setting spray. I like both of these because they do what they say. The Milani one makes my makeup last longer compared to other setting sprays, and the NYX one makes my face look dewy. Both are reasonably priced, therefore I would recommend both (and I have repurchased both). The other setting spray is the Mac Prep + Prime Fix +. Listen, this is a cult classic for a reason. I don’t know what they put in this spray, but my makeup just always looks ten times better after applying it. It takes away the powdery look and makes the makeup just melt into the skin. It is also amazing for enhancing any eye shadows, pigments or highlights. I will always have Mac Fix+ on my vanity.

Next up are two products from Sol de Janeiro. I finished a mini of the Coco Cabana Body Cream. I love this scent and I do find the textures between this one and the original slightly different. The original is a true cream whereas this one is more of a gel. Anyways I love it so much and I did repurchase it. Then I had a mini of the Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel. While I really liked using it, I will not be repurchasing it. The shower cream smells exactly like the cream, but I found it had not staying power. Sometimes I will use a shower gel or soap and can smell it on my skin afterwards. This wasn’t the case for this one. So while I enjoy using it in the shower, I didn’t notice a huge difference in my skin. I rather by the lotion which has a strong lasting power than buy the shower gel.

Another body product is The Body Shop Body Butter in the scent Mango. Oh I love their body butters. They are just so moisturizing but also fast drying. I don’t have to wait forever for it to absorb into my skin. I have tried three of their scents so far, and next time I want to try another one. The Body Shop has such a nice range of scent, there is one for everyone.

My final product is the L’Oreal Dream Length Saviour Mask. It was a good mask but it wasn’t amazing. Like my hair did feel smoother and felt less dry after using it, but I didn’t feel blown away by it. I am on the hunt for a good hair mask, so let me know in the comments your favourite one!

And that is my product empties! What are some products that you finished lately? Let me know in the comments down below 🙂

  1. I don’t have many empties because I have way too much stuff I constantly go back and forth with lol. I’m terrible.

    Also, I love the Sol de Janeiro bum bum cream but I agree, I was also disappointed that the shower gel has no staying power in terms of the scent.
