Sorry I’ve been absent lately, I’ve been one busy girl!
Today I thought I’d share with you the products I’ve used up in the past month and my thoughts on these products. Keep in mind, I’ve repurchased some of these products and will be showing you the new ones because I’ve already tossed the old. Let’s jump right in!
CORRESPONDING VIDEO: Empties! Products I’ve Used Up
The first product I’ve used up is my Clinique Acne Solutions Foundation.
I’ve used numerous tubes of this product and will continue to repurchase it. It makes my skin have a flawless airbrushed look, doesn’t cake up of feel heavy, and treats my acne. Definitely my favorite foundation.
Next, is my Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Zephyr.
This is a bright white shimmery color with a hint of gold. This is my go-to inner corner shade when I want to brighten up my eyes. I truly love the formula of the Urban Decay eyeshadows, and this color is definitely one of my favorites. I’m starting on my 3rd one!
$18.00, Urban Decay
Next, to no surprise, is my NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Milk.
This is just a white cream shadow that I use EVERY SINGLE DAY in my inner corner and under my eyebrow before applying a shadow, but after a primer. This color is perfect for brightening up the eyes and creating a subtle highlight. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Next, I sort of have two things in one. First of all, I used up my ENTIRE Urban Decay Naked Palette. The first one. But also, the first color to go in my second palette is the color “Virgin”.
First of all, I cannot thank my aunt ENOUGH for getting me the Naked palette a few years ago. THANK YOU AUNTIE ANN!!! I have a love affair with this palette. The colors are perfect to create anything from a natural daytime eye, to a deep dark smokey eye. Hopefully my using up and entire palette is an indication of just how much I love this palette. And the color virgin, second picture far left eyeshadow, is always the first one to be used. It is a light peachy white shimmery highlighting shade that suits any skin tone and just gives a natural glow. If I don’t stop raving over this palette now, I’ll never stop.
$50.00, Sephora (pricey but SO SO SO worth it!!)
Next, is my Clinique True Bronze Bronzer in 02.
Love Love LOVE this bronzer for getting a nice sunkissed glow without looking fake-orange. It’s just the perfect bronzer for me.
Next is the L’Oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense. Regardless of not knowing how to pronounce it’s full name, I used the product up! haha
It is what it claims to be: a carbon black liquid liner. I love this eyeliner, do not get me wrong, but I do not see myself repurchasing this in the future due to the fact that I have found my true eyeliner love: L’Oreal the Super Slim liquid eyeliner. While I did enjoy using the Lineur Intense, It is a bit watery and harder to create a precise line.
Next is my true love in eyeliner form, as mentioned above, the L’Oreal the Super Slin Liquid Eyeliner in Black.
This product is like a marker, and is the easiest liner i’ve ever applied. Rich, dark color and super staying power. Need I say more?
Next is Clinique’s eyeshadow in Lucky Penny.
This was one of the first eyeshadows I ever used, and still one of my favorites. It’s pretty taupe-y bronze shimmer creates a natural, yet polished look all on it’s own. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE L-O-V-E LOVE.
Next, I have my Cover Fx Clear Prep Anti-Acne Primer.
This face primer applies warm, which I’m not a huge fan of, but I feel like it didn’t effect my acne enough for the price. While it was a good primer, my Smashbox Photo Finish Light controls my oil better and seems to be longer lasting.
Clear Prep: $38.00, Sephora
Next is my MAC blotting powder.
It is exactly what it claims to be: a translucent blotting powder that controls my oil. Love this.
Next is my MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer
Although opaque, I felt like the consistency of this concealer was a bit too heavy and oily for my skin. I’m sure it would be great on drier skins, but for me, I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing this product.
And that is it for my Empties! I hope you enjoyed it! Thank you SO SO SO much for reading.
