Back with my “Empties” series today! Time to talk about all the products I used up in the month of April. It was actually a pretty good month for empties – most products I used up were pretty great (with a few exceptions). I’ll actually be writing my first Dissapointing Products post soon as well, so be on the lookout for that. Now let’s get into these empties.
No 7 Airbrush Away Foundation – This is a great foundation for anyone that likes very light coverage. I would almost say this is on par with tinted moisturizer. This foundation has a really nice looking finish and the bottle will last you a long time. I recommend applying with a beauty blender for a flawless finish and using luminating primers. I do think I would consider re-purchasing this one.
Benefit They’re Real – This used to be my holy grail mascara. I think I have been liking the Tarteist a little more lately so I think the favorite’s been replaced. This mascara is great for both length and volume but does tend to dry out pretty quickly which is always a bummer considering the $24 price tag. I think I’m going to hold off repurchasing for now, but in the future, I’ll probably pick it up again.
Grande Cosmetics Grande Mascara – I received this complimentary via Influenster and good thing I did because I would not have been a happy camper if I spent the money on this mascara, especially considering it’s $25. This mascara did absolutely nothing for my lashes. Least impressive mascara award of 2018 so far goes to this one for sure (and I’ve tried out quite a few so far this year).
First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Cleanser with Red Clay – I received this in my Sephora Play! And I gotta say, I did like this cleanser. It was very different considering it was bright red but it did do a good job cleaning my face and my skin never got irritated from it. Would I repurchase? Probably not, since I have so many other cleansers that I love but this was still a pretty good cleanser.
Farmacy Honey Potion Mask – I absolutely love this mask. A little goes such a long way with this one. I probably got to use this mini size at least 6-7 times which is pretty impressive. Your skin looks so good after using it and it’s pretty heavy duty but you can totally see a difference afterwards. It has a really cool warming sensation when you apply it on the face so it’s a great mask for winter. Now that it’s summer, I’m still going to use this mask (I already stocked up) but less often. I actually redeemed this as a point perk again and know that the little size lasts a while so I’m perfectly content with that for now.
Kate Sommerville Exfolikate – I know a lot of people love this product but I honestly wasn’t a fan. This left my skin super sensitive and didn’t seem to make any difference other than leave some redness. I didn’t like the strong scent of it either. So yeah, not repurchasing this one.
BareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion Serum – I absolutely loved this serum. I applied this before my moisturizer every day and it left such a nice glow on my skin. I am definitely considering buying the full size.
That’s all I have for my empties this month. Let me know if you guys have tried any of these products or what you used up that you think I should pick up!
As always, thanks for reading! 😊
