It's beauty empties time! I know some people are a bit hit and miss on these, but I actually love writing them as finishing a product is a bit of an achievement for me. Having said that, I am trying my hardest to use up as much of my beauty stash as possible this year so everything can be a bit more streamline in terms of every day products. Anyway, here are my empty products from the start of this year in random order...
Too Faced Hangover Primer
Buy Here | This is a very old tube and one I should have thrown out a long time ago - eep! I liked this primer a lot when I was on Roaccutane as I felt like it helped with my dry skin. It's reasonably hydrating - or at least gives the illusion that it is - so is great for adding a bit of a glow too.
Would I repurchase? Maybe but not in a rush.
Elemis Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil
Buy Here | You are seeing correctly, there are two empty bottles in this empties post as I love this treatment a lot. I don't even fully know what it does in terms of the ~science~ behind it, but it leaves me with plump, smooth skin in the morning.
Would I repurchase? Most definitely. Need a new bottle ASAP!
Revoke Touch of Silver Shampoo
Buy Here | This is a nice silver shampoo with quite an intense purple pigment to it. It does leave my blonde hair looking brighter, but the L'Oreal one still has top place for me. I have nothing against this, but it didn't wow me.
Would I repurchase? Probably not.
Elemis Hydra-Boost Serum
Buy Here | I should probably throw this away as it's old and I have roughly 1/4 of it left, but it's a really great serum. I wear this under moisturiser during the day and it really does help hydrate my skin!
Would I repurchase? Yes.
Sure Maximum Protection Confidence Deodorant
Buy Here | I did a campaign with Sure last year where I was give this deodorant and I've genuinely used it every day since. I've purchase 2 or 3 since then and picked up another the other day! It smells nice and genuinely works, even if you're having a particularly gross day.
Would I repurchase? Yes and I have.
Pixi x Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse
Buy Here | I do really like this cleanser - I think I put it in my 2017 faves - and I honestly wish they would sell the cleansing oil separately because I'm obsessed with it. Towards the end I did actually get super bored of the cream side though, I must admit...
Would I repurchase? Maybe, though not in a hurry as I'd rather just get a balm by itself.
Urban Decay Trouble Maker Mascara
Buy Here | I actually liked this mascara at first. I thought it was really lengthening, dark and made my lashes look great. It seemed to dry up quite quickly however and a makeup artist (from NARS) pointed out when I was getting my face done that it was flaking super badly! Not good for only being open for a 2-3 weeks.
Would I repurchase? No.
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
Buy Here | An old school favourite and a foundation I really like, as it has great coverage and makes my skin look so even!
Would I repurchase? Maybe in the future, but not in a rush.
Buy Here | My Roaccutane saviour and all time favourite lip balm! Honestly, this stuff is amazing. It may not look pretty, but it works a treat.
Would I repurchase? 100% yes.
Oribe Dry Texturising Spray
Buy Here | This is just a mini so I'm cheating a bit with this empty, but I do like this spray. It adds volume and texture, but it's nothing amazing!
Would I repurchase? No, the full size is way too much money!
Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Cream
Buy Here | I really do love this eye cream and I've used this whole mega tub up to the last drop. It's hydrating and feels like a treat to use!
Would I repurchase? I already have a spare.
Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner
Buy Here | In terms of eyeliners available from the high st, this one has got to be the best. It's precise, super black and stays put. I've had about 4 of these in the past, too.
Would I repurchase? Yes.
MAC Empties aka Back2MAC
I recently sorted out my entire makeup stash with Chloe and condensed it down from 7 boxes to just 2 little ones! In doing this, I realised how many MAC products I had that were ancient and probably needed to be replaced asap. So, now I have a box with around 30 items so I need to narrow down what lipsticks etc that I want. Of course, Lady Danger will be my number one but I can't think which others! Suggestions welcome.
