My final empties post from 2013, how exciting! Next up will be my 2013 favourites. Then I can move on to 2014 with a bang!
This post is going to be mainly pic heavy. We are in the process of closing up our soon-to-be rental property and move into our new home, so this post is “fuller” than usual. During the packing process, I decided to TOSS more products than normal so that I only take with me that which I truly want in the new space.
|The goodies bag – all used up!
Skincare included a hodge-podge of products:
Say Yes to Carrots Moisturizing Body Wash – the formula has changed. I’m not too sure what the difference is, but this feels more watery, less moisturizing. I’m currently using a shea soap and totally in love with it so won’t repurchase for a while.
Cerave Sunscreen Body SPF 30 – left me looking a little ashy, but worked like magic.
Keracare Leave-In Conditioner – total repurchase!
Kroger brand Acne Gel 10% Benzyol Peroxide – this worked great. Dried those zits write up. BUT, every time I used this, there was a corresponding scar left behind. Gave up on it after the 4th scar – TOSSED!
Lancome Tonique Confort – I was using this mainly when I travel. It’s very non-stripping, and it has no alcohol, which I find too drying. This was a very generous sample, but I will not purchase. There was a little left but I TOSSED it.
BioTrue Contact Lens Cleaner – take care of your eyes ladies!!
I didn’t think I had used up so many products these last two more months, but there is so much in there! I finished some lippies! I’ve been using lippies like a crazy woman on a quest to reduce the stash and I think its working.
|YSL Rouge Volupte #9 and Chanel Rouge Allure in Impertinence
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine #9 Nude in Private – one of my favourite lippies. Already repurchased and highly recommended. My lips have been buttery soft ever since I started using this.
Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Impertinence – this was a great plummy nude colour. Very slippery though, if I didn’t use lipliner it would travel a little bit. I don’t think it’s available anymore, but I swear, if I find it at a counter I will grab it!
|Milani & Confetti nail polishes
Nail polishes Milani, Confetti and some random brand. I don’t often buy or wear nail polish, so they sit around separating and getting TOSSED out.
|Mascaras and Milani Baked Bronzer
Chanel Le Volume Mascara – my absolute holy grail mascara. I think this is my third tube. I love the fat lashes it gives me. Will repurchase again and again!
Lancome Hypnose Star – honestly, I bought this for the Elbar Lanvin packaging. So cute. But I found this too wet, it just smudged constantly and made a mess all over.
Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill – I think I might have waited too long to use this. It was a little drier than what I expected. It took a lot of layers to get the look I wanted. Honestly, I just ended up tossing this after less than a month, life is too short to waste on disappointing mascara. TOSSED.
Elf liquid liner – tried this to figure out if I wanted to return to the world of liquid lingers. This was terrible, and plasticky. Let’s just say that I am still on the fence. TOSSED.
