So long, farewell - Empties #2

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been working hard to use up half finished products.  A lot of my things be it bathroom or makeup products get used to a point then I have a tendency to move on to something else without finishing.  So its been a project called ‘sort it out Angela and de-clutter’.  So I thought I’d show you my recent empties as opposed to my monthly favourites . . .

I’ve managed to finished two of my favourite foundations,  there is no doubt in my mind that I will be repurchasing these two at some stage.  I think these are both great foundations especially my Bobbi Brown - Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation.  I wore this foundation for my wedding back in 2010 -  this is how much faith I have in this product.   This gives a medium to full coverage, lasts all day and is oil free with an SPF25.  This is the second bottle of this and I do love it.  I will repurchase this as I think it's fabulously long lasting foundation.

The NARS Sheer Glow is favourite again, it suits my skin perfect when it comes to the colour.  It gives you this dewy 'glow' which makes you look healthy.  My only annoyance with this is the lack of a pump.  Is it really that difficult to provide a pump?

This little pot is my Corrector from Bobbi Brown.  Who knew such a small product could make such a difference and save me from my under eye circles (I have a under eye video here if you wish to see how I apply it)  If you have trouble with dark circles I urge you to pop to a Bobbi Brown counter asap to get a colour match.  In reality the Bobbi Brown corrector is a relativity new investment for me and I only started using in 2010.  Wedding day again.  I do think to myself how did I live without you??  Would I repurchase?  I already have! Hehe

Before I ever discovered Estee Lauder Double Wear eyeliners, this Dior Waterproof Eyeliner in the shade Trinidad Black was my go to liner.  Lasts really well and is great on my upper water line.  Would I repurchase it?  Probably no, but if ever Estee Lauder were to discontinue their eyeliners I would then consider repurchasing.

I am a fan of Liz Earle when it comes to the award winning cleanse and polish.  But sadly when I comes to Gentle Face Exfoliator this doesn’t float my boat.  Don’t get me wrong I like this but I’m not in LOVE.  I feel like it only scratches the surface,  it doesn’t give me a deep enough exfoliation.  I just need something more abrasive.  Now if you have sensitive or delicate skin then I would recommend this as it is gentle enough.  Would I repurchase?  Sorry but no.

And finally my bubble bath/shower gel from The Body Shop in the scent Japanese Cherry Blossom.  I'm a big  floral fan and I bought this along with the fragrance and the body puree.  It turns out in my house hold I'm not the only floral lover . . . it turns out the hubby likes floral fragrances too!!  It’s a nice product but I much prefer the Rituals shower gel.  A no to repurchasing :-(

Hope you enjoyed, night night everyone!

  1. Love empties posts! I really need to start doing this as well! I have such an awful habit of hardly ever finishing up products :/
