Massive Spring Empties Post

I’ve been sitting on some of these items for quite some time.  Not only have I finished some products, but some are just unused/unloved or super-duper old and needed to be tossed.  I had no idea I had this much sitting around waiting for me.  And after I took all the pictures, I found a whole other MAC bag full of empties, but I just threw those away, I couldn’t deal with it any more.

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, there’s been a lot of work happening in my house, and work is pretty stressful right now.  I find it de-stressing to work on my blog but lately that has not been the case.  Anyway, I do apologize for the silence.

Items that will not be re-purchased include the Tarte Marajuca Oil, Clinique Take The Day Off makeup remover, Clinique mascara (sorry don’t even know which one it is, it was quite unimpressive) and the Caudalie Grape Hand Moisturizer.

NYX, Chanel, Estee Lauder, Dior
Make-up Empties and Tossed make-up products – NYX, Chanel, Estee Lauder, Dior and Fresh

Definite repurchases include the MAC Haught and Naughty Mascara, NYX Butterglosses, Chanel Glossimer lipgloss, L’Occitane Shea Hand Cream, the Shiseido cotton squares and the Dior Addict lipstick. All of these items are HG status!

I love the Palmers Cocoa Butter and I’m halfway through the next bottle.  the Chi thermal protectant was old.  OLD.  I think I bought it 6 years ago…. I have no idea why I still had it.  I will eventually repurchase the Elasta QP products, I just need to work my way through some other products that I have.

Very old and Icky Estee Lauder lippie

This was covered in some icky white coating the entire lipstick.  I have no idea how old this is, and it didn’t have a funny smell or anything.  But it looked gross and would have probably given me some disease!  Tossed.

I never used this.  I think the colours were just too cool-toned for me.  I think there was only one eyeshadow that I used that didn’t end up looking muddy on me.  The highlighters were way too shimmery for me.  I’m having second thoughts about it, but it’s already tossed so no going back.

The Philosophy Hope Tinted Moisturizer had started to smell like clay/wet sand.  And it seemed like the smell was getting stronger every time I used it.   Since I only use this during the winter (for colour matching reasons), I knew it wasn’t going to make till the next winter.  Tossed.  I was giving the Clinique make-up remover a second chance.  I used to be loyal to it, but I discovered better and remembered why I disliked this one.

IMG_2593All in all, lots of products used and tossed these last few months.  I hope you have been tossing all your old and expired beauty products and using up the rest.  Thanks so much for stopping by and continuing to visit my blog.  I appreciate it.

Stay blessed.

  1. I like that hand cream by L’Occitane. All the hand creams by L’Occitane are really good. I just finished the same hand cream by Caudalie but I’m not impressed, so I won’t buy it again. At the beginning it seems very moisturizing but it’s not.

    1. I was terribly disappointed by the Caudalie hand cream. I got mine in a set and won’t repurchase. I’ll be sticking with my beloved L’Occitane! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Great job on the empties, Neo! I’m in awe of how many lip products you’ve used up 😀 Tossing unloved stuff is always hard, but I usually find that I never again think about the stuff I’ve decided to part with.

    1. I think I had one moment where I missed the NYX eyeshadows, but now I’m totally over it. I may not wear a lot of make-up as a whole, but lippies I love!!! and I always re-apply through out the day:) Loving your new minimalist outlook by the way.

  3. I do like the L’Occitane hand creams but my $1 tin of Nivea works just as nice so I haven’t bought it in a while. My sister swears by Palmers. It smells nice but it just doesn’t do mush for my dry skin.
    On another note I know how work can be draining. I hope you get some relief soon.

    1. Thanks, 2 more weeks till a massive global presentation/training and hopefully things will return to normal. I try to buy the L’Occitane on sale, and I can never find the Nivea in a tin!!!

  4. So sad you had to throw away so many products, that’s why us girls need not to buy so much and use what we already have but that’s easier said then done. I love the new blog Neo

    1. Thanks for visiting my dear! This is why I’m so adamant about managing my make-up addiction, as much as I love make-up, I love keeping money in my purse even more. Throwing away product makes me feel like im throwing away money…. which i detest!
