No. 2 - I LOVE empties posts/videos... I don't know why. I know for myself, I love the feeling of using something up, especially makeup because it's a rare moment. haha
It just feels good to use up stuff. I guess. And I'm super interested in what everyone else uses as well [I mean, nothing like too personal, but you know what I mean]
So here it is, my first empties post.
Ignore the hideous nature of my photos, as I am burnt out on making photographs so these were a little quick.
First is my makeup removing staple, don't judge! These are so perfect and don't sting my eyes. The blue pack is my favorite.. I can't handle the purple/lavender ones. However I am trying some new ones that I may like even more.
Ugh, Lush is the best ever. This scrub was amazing and smelled like ....the ocean. haha Duh. But those ocean-y, salty, fresh, almost cologne type smells are some of my favorites... not too girly but not totally manly. They are my favorite smells for bathrooms and my car [is that weird?]. And hooray for saving up empty Lush containers for a free fresh mask! If I ever get there...
My Urban Decay things! I love this setting spray to death. I surprisingly can't use the De-Slick one as it seemed to amp up my oil production and I had to pass it on to friends. I believe this is the regular one, and it's great. Funny enough, the same friends that I passed the setting spray onto passed this face primer onto me. It was nice and did the job, but wasn't my hands down favorite.
This was a generous sample from a Sephora set or perk, I can't remember. But it smelled great and did make my hair feel nice and healthy. I got about two uses out of this.. I may purchase a full size.
I had two of these bad boys from an Ipsy bag. These scrubs were nice, they both were the same scent and I forgot to photograph both of them so whatever. They had almost the same smell as the Lush scrub so naturally I loved it. These packets had a pretty good amount for a full body scrub down but weren't abrasive enough for me; I love abrasive body scrubs. I don't think I will purchase a full size or whatever but these were very nice to try.
Apologies if you think this is an odd/gross addition but I was blown away by one of these guys. I can't remember which color the Genius Gel was, but it was slightly too yellow for me, so I mixed it and it was a nice feeling foundation, but you know with these types of samples, you get nowhere near a full face application.
Now... the Remedy concealer came in shade 1 - Rendezvous. This was amazing. I wasn't into it the first time I used it when I put it under my eyes over foundation as it creased and seemed to sheer out too much when I blended. BUT, when I applied it under my eyes before foundation, let it dry and then blended a little foundation around it, it looked amazing. I bought the shade 0 - Bright Idea in a full size and this was a free sample, so I wish I would have bought the Rendezvous shade now! Once I run out of a few more under eye concealers, I will most likely buy Rendezvous. Love it. And this sample lasted forever. Woo!
I thought I used the conditioner as well, but maybe not. This was a nice shampoo but eh. I don't think I'd buy the full size.
I meant to photograph this with my other wipes but alas, I didn't. I usually love everything Kat Von D products but I wasn't too pleased with these. They seemed to not take off all of my makeup. I loved the container though.
Love Spell is a perfume I will probably repurchase forever. I wore this even back in middle school and even Sean loves it.. so besides it smelling amazing always, it's a nice scent for both of us to remember our high school memories as well. hahaha How old are we?
Ralph Lauren Romance has lasted me a long time. I really do love this scent. I will probably repurchase this again. It's so different from what I usually wear and doesn't smell too girly on me and lasts a long time, so it's nice when you know you'll be gone all day.
Finally, some real makeups. haha. Okay... This jar of eye cream was the CUTEST thing ever. I almost saved it, but I am well on my way to being a hoarder so I let it go. But really, the cutest mini jar in the universe. The eye cream however was just an eye cream to me. I have favorites. Moving onto the mascara, They're Real is one of my top favorites. I get compliments all the time when I wear this. I love getting these little samples.
The Sugar Rose lip balm was nice. I'm glad I got a set of mini balms around the holidays because the full sized ones are huge! This was nice to wear at any time to keep my lips hydrated and when I only wore this, my lips got a cute tint.
This Nars Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates lasted forever as well as it was not my favorite. The color was so inky that it would look blue when it faded or was washed off, but not like inky blackest black, if you know what I mean. This liner made me realize that I definitely am not a fan of the felt tipped liners. I could have kept using this but it was at that point where it would go good on the first eye, and then the other eye it would start to poop out on me.
Well... that's all folks! Hope you enjoyed.. haha
