Makeup Empties #5

I was having a major clean out in my room the other weekend and I realised I became very close to throwing my precious bag of empties out. Since the bag was getting pretty full, I decided it was time for another Makeup Empties! 

LAURA MERCIER Foundation Primer - Hydrating
This took me ages to finish! The tube has a pretty big 50ml. A nice primer but I prefer the original Foundation Primer from Laura Mercier. Foundation does not last quite as long with the hydrating as it does with the original formula. 

MAC Strobe Cream
Still a favourite before makeup moisturiser/primer. I have repurchased and will most likely continue to do so. 

CHANEL Hydra Beauty Flash
I loved using this as a primer, it is hydrating and seems to smooth my skin texture. Will probably repurchase but it is on the pricer side at $100 for 30ml. 

URBAN DECAY All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
I really like using this to take away any powdery finish on my makeup. It helps give me that dewy look that I love at the moment. It also helps my makeup last all day. Already repurchased. 

BURBERRY Sheer Foundation
I feel like I have had this foundation for ages (and honestly, I think I have). A lovely light and luminous foundation with a great shade match (I was the second lightest shade which never happens). I didn't really like the bottle though, it was hard to get the remaining product out of and felt awkward to hold. 

LOREAL Nude Magique Cushion Foundation
This was the first time in a long time that I was not disappointed or just outright hated a 'drugstore' product. Overall this was a nice light and dewy foundation. Only problem was it had a tendency to turn a little orange on my fair skin. 

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
I still adore this powder and have already repurchased (and half used) it. 

LAURA MERCIER Tinted Moisturiser
I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this. Some days I was in love with it and others I really didn't enjoy it. Probably won't repurchase it, I just found it a bit blah. 

LANCOME Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact
I adored this foundation. Super easy to use and left me glowing. I will repurchase when I get around to it (one day). 

BY TERRY Terrybly Densiliss Concealer
A pricey but lovely concealer for the under eye area. I found it hydrating and it covered my dark circles quite well. Probably won't repurchase.

GIORGIO ARMANI High Precision Retouch
This concealer surprised me by how effective it actually was. The colour was odd but it did a great job at concealing my under eye area. The very fine brush was also really nice to pinpoint application. May repurchase one day. 

TOM FORD Concealing Pen
This concealer is possibly the biggest waste of money ever. It is the worst concealer I have ever tried. The applicator sucks (it has a little sponge on the top), it doesn't actually conceal and is just plain horrible. I hate.

This is a much hyped about product which is very good at concealing dark circles in conjunction with a concealer. A good product but I found it could be a little thick and crease on me. 

DIOR Diorskin Star Concealer
This concealer wasn't bad but it also wasn't amazing. An okay everyday concealer. I won't repurchase. 

DIOR Hydra Life BB Eye Cream
I enjoyed this product when I first used it. I found it good at softening my dark circles but not being too heavy. This isn't fully empty but it is way too old now. The colour has changed and it has a really strong off smell.

LOREAL Brow Artist Plumper
This was slightly too dark for my brows but good when I wanted a quick groom without having to fill in my brows. Not quite empty but it has gone clumpy (like an old mascara). 

BENEFIT Gimme Brow
Love! Already repurchased.

ESTEE LAUDER Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara
This was a freebie with a magazine. It was okay. Nothing amazing and honestly I was glad I hadn't paid the retail price. 

MAYBELLINE The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara
This mascara was much better in my memory or maybe I have just used great mascaras since first using this about 6 years ago. Won't repurchase. 

CHANEL Illusion D'Ombre - 82 Emerveille
I adored this cream eyeshadow and it lasted ages. Emerveille is a pretty champagne beige. Will repurchase. 

CLINIQUE Almost Lipstick - 39 Shy Honey
This isn't really even close to lipstick. It is a very lightly tinted lip balm that sadly isn't really that moisturising. Won't repurchase and not even sure if Clinique still makes these. 

What have you finished up lately?

  1. I love empties posts. It feels like a weird thing to like but I always geel like it gives a good reflection on what people are using and actually finishing.



Comments, criticism, questions & love all welcome.
