Back in June I did an empties post with quite a few products. It felt good to finish so many products and throw the containers in the recycle bin. I’m writing a second empties post, but I’m afraid it’s no where near as exciting. But still, it’s the little things that count. My goal is to lessen the “stuff” in the drawers as I am so busy adding products that I will soon run out of my VERY limited space.
Four little tubes, a tub and an empty packet. To be honest, two of those tubes aren’t quite empty, but one will be done within the week and the other has fallen out of favour… and not a minute too soon.
|Chanel, Covergirl, Clinique & Estee Lauder|
The Chanel Inimitable Mascara – will definitely not repurchase that clumpy mess. For that kind of money I expect perfection. Here, not so much. I will say though, that this mascara DOES not flake. I tend to have a bad habit of rubbing my eyes towards the end of the day and those clumps held on. I don’t know, maybe I didn’t take the time to work through the clumps? Who knows? This was my second tube, and I have definitely moved on.
Covergirl Concealer True Conceal #5 – will NOT repurchase. This is definitely a better colour match for me during the winter when I am about one to two shades lighter. Right now in the heat of the summer, it only serves to give me raccoon eyes and draw attention to the puffiness. Not cute.
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara – this was a sample from I think my GWP during a SAKS beauty event. I like the Sumptuous line, but Magnascopic has always been my go-to Estee Lauder mascara. I currently don’t have one in my arsenal, but I’m sure I have bought and repurchased that particular mascara at least 6 or 7 times, if not more. I have another sample tube of this to work through so won’t be purchasing a full-size. In fact, if you have seen my mascara inventory post then you know that I should be on a mascara ban all-together.
|Say Yes to Cucumbers & SheaMoisture|
Say Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Towlettes – will definitely not repurchase. They were not soothing in the least, and there was hell to pay if i accidentally swiped too close to my eyes. I prefer the Say Yes to Blueberries and have two packets stashed away
The Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque is my second favourite deep conditioner. It’s thick and really works to quench my thirsty dry hair. At the same time, it has never made my hair feel weighted down or greasy. I highly recommend it. I will probably repurchase in a couple of months, but I am currently using my HG dc and therefore have NO need for any other:)
That’s it for these past few months. Will hopefully start work on my next brown bag of empties soon. Keep recycling!
