BEAUTY EMPTIES 2016 #3 WITH MINI REVIEWS FEAT. BEAUTY BLENDER, LUSH AND MORE





Happy Monday everyone :) I hope you had a great weekend. I spent mine clearing up my vanity and bathroom shelves from all the empties I recently accumulated. And it's quite a bit if I can say so myself ;) So make yourself a cuppa and let's dig in, shall we?

SKINCARE:

It's with a heavy heart I say goodbye to Naobay Calming Face Toner (full review here). It made me fall in love with toning my skin all over again and being super delicate it worked amazing for my super sensitive skin, really soothing it after cleansing. Would I repurchase? Definitely!

Odylique Timeless Rose Moisturiser hasn't been my favourite as I really don't enjoy the rose scented products, especially not those with such overpowering scent. However with active ingredients like Rose, Reship, Sea Buckthorn, Aloe Vera, Jojoba and Coconut it was to do to just dump, so I used it up as my neck moisturiser. Would I repurchase? Despite it being a great moisturiser, I would not buy it again because of the scent.

Lush The Sacred Truth Mask has been my hero face mask (review here). I loved the scent, the formula and most importantly the results. It left my skin soft and smooth and it was a great pick me up for a monday or an evening mask. Would I repurchase? Definitely yes, I loved using it.

The Creme Shop Collagen Face Mask (pack of 5) is a great sheet mask. It left my skin smooth and nourished. Perfect for warm evenings as it refreshes the skin. Would I repurchase? I already have :)

HAIRCARE:

I really loved Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo with Avocado Oil & Shea butter. It's really reasonably priced and a great all round shampoo. It cleansed my hair well, only a little was needed for a single wash. Would I repurchase? Yes, I already have a back up. 

MAKEUP:

It's all about the blushes in this one as I'm getting rid of quite a few. Not because I hit the pan, but because they're either out of date or gone bad... Bourjois 12H Aqua Blush in Pink Twice and Ingé-nude have been my faves the last summer. The formula was brilliant as they stayed on all day and gave only a flush of colour to the cheeks, without being too overbearing. Unfortunately despite the packaging with the pump the product dried up within 3-5 months and I was going to rid of it ages ago, but forgot. Would I repurchase? No.

The next two blushes I had for so long they are definitely out of date so it's time to say our goodbyes. Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in 06 was a neutral pink with satin finish. It stays put for hours, but I didn't like the pot packaging as it's hard to take the product out with a finger (if you have long nails) or with a brush as it takes way too much product on. Second is a Glossybox own branded blush in Glossy Rosewood. It's a really pretty mauve pink with little pigmentation which actually is in four of any blusher. Perfect for those with pale complexions. Would I repurchase: I have so many blushes in my collection, so it's a no this time.

I used up 3 mascaras, which is a norm for me, as I normally have 2-3 of them on the go at all times. I absolutely loved both Maybelline The Falsies in Black Drama and Max Factor Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara. They were both super volumising and never crumbled on me. No panda eyes with them two. Would I repurchase? If I wasn't in full on testing mascara mood, I would definitely repurchase them both. The third mascara was Collection Lengthening Mascara and I have a bit of meh relationship with it. It just doesn't do much to my lashes. It had a very dry formula, which I normally like, but the product was hard to show on the lashes. Would I repurchase? It's a no from me. 

ACCESSORIES:

It's time to say my goodbyes to my two favourite beauty sponges: the original Beauty Blender and Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. These two win the sponge game in my eye with a slight preference to Beauty Blender as it's truly unique! Would I repurchase? I already have :)

After 20 or more wears I'm finally saying goodbye to Tanya Burr Everyday Flutter Lashes. These corner lashes have served me well and are such great quality despite being really affordable, so if you're looking for an easy, every day style, these are for you. Would I repurchase? Yes.

Thank You For Reading,
Love
