November 2018 Empties

November 2018 Empties (2)

Hello there, today is all about empties, all the products that I have used up, aka trash, which is always weirdly exciting because it’s like mini-reviews on a lot of different products. Last month I used up a good amount of product with twenty-four products and this month I have crushed that with a total of twenty-six empties this month. I don’t know why but I just really love using up a product, it’s probably because I have too much stuff. So, let’s talk trash.

For your enjoyment here is a fun and festive playlist you can listen to while reading blogmas.

Fall Scents 2018

Fall Scents 2018

Switching it up today, thought I would do something a little bit different and something in the spirit of fall since it is officially the fall season. So, today I will be focusing on some of my favorite fall scents, more specifically my favorite fall candles which are mostly from Bath & Bodyworks but there are some others in there too. So, let’s dive in and see what kind of scents I love during this time of the year.

January 2018 Empties

It’s time for yet another empties post, the first one of the year and it’s going to be an average empties post really, I have a fair amount of products but nothing crazy. I have been keeping up the pace with going through products and getting them out, which is a huge goal that I have for this year, I really want to use and enjoy my hoard of things, so hopefully, these empties posts will stay interesting.

Project Pan 2018

Untitled design

It is time for another project pan, at this point I think it is impossible for me to finish one project and not start another one, so since I just finished one last weekend it is time to start another one this weekend. This one is different than my past few as it is the first time I am doing one that I plan on doing all year, so this is my one and only project pan for the year, I really wanted to test it out and see how it went, so that’s why we are here. I have once again used the same roulette list and method as some of my past ones, which is here if you want to check it out. I am really excited about this so let’s just jump right on in.

October 2017 Empties


It’s time to talk about some trash, which is always fun, I really enjoy seeing all the product that I’ve used up in a month or other people have used up, it’s just really fun to be able to see how much someone really liked something as they full used up a product which means they usually have a very clear opinion about it. Anyway, this month is probably going to be a bit shorter than last month, I for sure do not have as many empties as I did, so let’s dive on in.

Project Pan: New Years Goal!

Project Pan

I intended to start another project pan but I hadn’t intended to start it so soon, however, the post that I had planned for the day has inspired me to do a project pan instead. I was going to do a how much my makeup collection is worth post, but I started adding it up and really got terrified/mildly ashamed, so instead, I’m here doing a project pan in an attempt to jump-start using up some products. So, that’s what we’re doing. There will be a total of three posts about this project, as usual, this one, a check-in and then a finale. I will update probably mid-November, and then the finale will be January sixth, so this is the new year project pan. Instead of doing a roulette type of deal like my past couple projects, instead I just kind of rounded up a bunch of things I wanted to use up and ended up with 40 things, so this is going to be a really big and challenging project. I’m not expecting to get through it all but we’ll see how it goes. And since this is such a large project I would suggest grabbing a drink and a snack really quick because this is going to be a long one!


1. Bath & Bodyworks Sweet On Paris Fragrance Mist – I have had this one for so long, this is my favorite scent and has been such a comforting scent for me over the years, but I’ve decided it’s time to really enjoy it and use it up before it goes off, which I’m surprised it hasn’t already since I’ve had this for so very long. I think I can get through this one in no time.

Amount left: 75%

2. Pixi Sun Mist – I purchased This on a whim, I was getting a couple of the other Pixi mists and I thought this one sounded awesome, it’s pretty much a sunscreen that you spritz on your face. The annoying thing is that I find myself often having to rub it in, which defeats the purpose to me, it’s not that serious but this just seemed like a super easy way to remember to always put on sunscreen.

Amount  Left: 100%

3. Bath & Body Works Frosted Wonderland Body Cream – I have a couple of these left so I’m trying to make my way through them because I’ve had them forever, and by a couple I mean a couple body creams, not of this scent exactly. I’ve had these a while and just really need to work on clearing out my little lotion stash.

Amount  Left: 50%

4. Pink Warm + Cozy Body Mist – I’ve finished one of these minis in a past project, it may have been one of the ones from this year actually, I can’t completely remember but either way I’ve used one of these up so I have complete confidence that I can finish this one during this project pan.

Amount  Left: 70%


5. Bliss Fab Girl Slim Skin Firming Cream – Another thing that I picked up on a whim, that seems to be a bit of a problem for me, I’m trying to break that habit but I’m honestly not very good at it. Anyway, I have always been interested in this product because of chunky thighs, but at the same time, I feel like it’s such stupid and gimmicky product. Either way, I own this and I’m trying to use it up.

Amount  Left: 95%

6. Tarte Maracuja Oil – I got this in a set, I feel like I feel everyone talk about how much they love this, I own this and figure I should give this a try, especially because I’ve had it for almost a year now. I’m not sure what the best way to use this is though, suggestions?

Amount  Left: 95%

7. Belli Basics Clearly Coconut Oil – Another oil, I’m not sure where this one came from and I’m really not sure what to do with this one, but I’m trying to use up products and I’m not one to get rid of products without using them at least once or twice before really judging them, hence why this one is here. Suggestions of the best way to use this one as well?

Amount  Left: 100%

8. NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray – I have so many sprays, I don’t know when this started or how I got here, but I have so many to test out and use up, so I’ve decided to reach for this little guy and once I get through this one I’ll probably pick another one to throw in this project. Clearly, I am confident I can finish this one up.

Amount  Left: 100%

9. It Cosmetics CC+ Cream – I’m not sure I’m looking forward to this one, I’ve been trying to product out and it’s not as amazing as I thought it would be, it’s also a bit too dark for me still, so I end up using drops to lighten it. I guess we’ll see how this one goes.

Amount  Left: 90%


10. NARS Velvet Lip Glide in Bound – I think I actually have two of these, not completely sure how I’ve come across two of them but I have, the goal is just to finish up one of them, however, if I finish up both that’s even better.

Amount  Left: 100%

11. Skin Food Black Sugar Mask – This is just a tiny little sample pot of this, so I’m sure I’ll have no problem getting through this one. I’m excited to give this a try, I’ve heard really good things and so far I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve tried from this brand.

Amount  Left: 100%

12. Clinique Pep Start Hydro Rish Moisturizer – I love this line so much, or at least every product I’ve tried so far, which has been three or four things I believe. This is also just a little tiny sample product that I’m going to be finished within no time, I’m sure of it.

Amount  Left: 90%

13. Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream – Another product from this range, this one is still a sample size but it’s a little large and I imagine this one will take me a little bit longer to finish up. I am super excited about trying out an eye cream though!

Amount  Left: 90%

14. Ouai Rose Hair + Body Oil – I’m not a fan of floral scents so I’m not sure if I’m going to like this one, everyone seems to be loving this brand so I am excited to test out some more products from them, but I’m just not sure how well I’m going to like this one.

Amount  Left: 100%

15. Ahava Dead Sea Crystal Osmoter Serum – I am not sure where I got this, not completely sure what this does and because of these two things, not sure why I’ve decided to include it in this project but I have, so we’re going to try and use this up and see how it goes.

Amount  Left: 100%

16. Milk Makeup Blur Stick – I just finished the one I was using from the last project, quite enjoyed it so I’ve decided to throw my other one in here and try to use it up. I am sure that I can’t-do that since I finished the other one up, granted, I finished it just a few days after the last project, but I bet if I really focus on this I’ll use it up in no time.

Amount  Left: 100%


17. Tonymoly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar – I believe this is the peach one, I’m not one hundred percent sure since I don’t believe it says it on the product itself and I’ve had it for a little while. I enjoy this product but it doesn’t really do a whole lot for me, plus it’s a little bit on the older side, so it might be time for this one to go.

Amount  Left: 70%

18. Essence Super Fine Eye Liner Pen in Deep Black – I am almost out of the eyeliner I use regularly so I’ve decided to try and use this one up, I hear this one is supposed to be really good so I’m curious to see if it will beat out my regular and well-loved eyeliner.

Amount  Left: 50%

19. Maybelline Baby Lips in Grape Vine – I’m not even sure if they make this shade anymore, I didn’t see it on the Ulta website. This is one of my favorite easy to wear lip products for the fall season, it’s moisturizing, glossy and gives a nice berry kind of tint to the lips that is perfect for the fall season. The only downside to this one for me is that it smells awful, like artificial grape powder and I personally hate that.

Amount  Left: 95%

20. Becca Back Light Priming Filter – I feel like I’ve had this sample for way too long and I don’t know why I’ve never really used it, everyone and their dog seems to love it, so I guess I’m finally going to find out what the hype is about.

Amount  Left: 100%

21. Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Dopey – This is a little sample, I’ve pretty much gotten rid of all of my colour pop lip products, I’m just not a big fan of them and I think this might be the last one I have, so here’s to hoping I enjoy this one and can get through it all.

Amount  Left: 60%

22. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Rose Gold – I have another makeup sample, this is such a pretty color and a product that I don’t think gets talked about enough, but when it does it seems like everyone who has used it loves it. I think this is going to be a pretty fun product to use up.

Amount  Left: 90%

23. The Estee Edit The Barest Contour Lip Liner in In The Buff – I’m pretty sure this brand doesn’t exist anymore? I feel like I heard something about that a little while ago, but I’ve done zero research into it. Either way, I’m trying to use up this lip liner. I’ve been into lip liner a lot more as of recently so I’m sure this one is going to be a breeze.

Amount  Left: 90%

24. Fiona Stiles Micro Precision Brow Sculpting Pencil in Neutral Brown – Another product that I think is going to be a breeze for me to use up, I say as a person who has never used up an entire brow pencil, but I’ve been enjoying using an eyebrow pencil a lot more recently so I’m thinking this one should be simple enough.

Amount  Left: 100%

25. Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner in In The Nude – This is pretty much my go-to waterline eyeliner, I like a nice nude waterline. I have been wanting to try out another pencil though so I’m hoping to get through this one and start trying out a couple other eyeliners.

Amount  Left: 50%

26. Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss in Papa Don’t Peach – This one is back! If I don’t finish this one up during this project I’m probably going to end up passing it along because I’m never going to use it. This color is so pretty and so effortless, however, I really don’t like the scent of this product so it always holds me back on wanting to use it. We’ll have to wait and see how this one really goes.

Amount  Left: 90%


27. Lorac Pro Matte Palette – Another product that is back and is pretty much impossible for me to ever use up, but I’m giving it another try. I have on shade completely gone, two almost finished, two with dents in them and three that are really going to need more love. I’m not expecting to finish this one up but I’ll see how it goes and how much I can really use up, I’m really hoping to finish the two that are basically done and the two with noticeable dents, but that might be too much. We will see.

Amount  Left: 70%

28. NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve Me – I love this blush! It’s probably one of my favorite ones for the fall time, it’s just perfect and so easy to wear with just about any look, I have had this for a while and I figured this would be a good one to use up. I’ll be sad to see it go but excited to use it up. Not that I really think I’m going to be able to finish up an entire blush in 3.5 months, but then again, who really knows.

Amount  Left: 90%

29. Honest Beauty Invisible Blurring Powder – I ran out of setting powder when I started putting together this list, so I dug through my stash and found this loose powder, which is what I’ve been using for the past couple of weeks now. Not sure how this one is going to go but I’m sure if I put my mind to it I can complete this one.

Amount  Left: 100%

30. Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Smoke N Whistles – I think this might have been the first highlighter that I ever owned, so it’s safe to say that I’ve had this one for a little while, this was also the first thing I ever really used from the brand I think or at least one of the first things. I think since I’m going to be focusing on using up this highlighter it’s going to be a breeze to use up.

Amount  Left: 50%

31. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light – Does it make me a liar because above I said I ran out of setting powder? I feel like this doesn’t because this isn’t just a typical setting powder, or at least I don’t think it is. While this is something that I want to use up I don’t think this is something that I would want to use every single day, mostly because I’m not sure that’s the look I’m always going for. I love this powder, I’m sad it’s so expensive but this is something that I’m hoping to use more and enjoy more and not think about the price, which is a little bit of the reason why it’s in this project.

Amount  Left: 85%

32.-40. Lush Products – This one I will break down into a real number list as I go along, but for right now I’m grouping them together because I don’t have names for each item. I want to use up eight Lush bath products, which should be super easy and I really think I could use up more over the next three and half months, but I decided to keep at eight for two reasons, one is that it makes it an even number and two is that it’s a little bit of a challenging number for me but it’s also something that I can easily accomplish, which I know doesn’t make a whole lot of sense together. I’m hoping to use up some bath product because the Christmas range is coming and I am sure I will snatch some of that up, so I need to use up some of the stuff I currently own before that happens.

And that is everything that I am including in this project pan! It’s a lot of things, I really honestly don’t think I’m going to get through them all, but I am excited to try to and to give some of my favorite products some heavy duty loving, but also try out some new things and see what I end up liking and not liking. I feel like that is a huge advantage to project pans for me, and probably to everyone, but finding out things that I love and don’t love are super useful. Anyway, I think I’m going to end this here because I’m sure this post has been far too long.

Ulta 21 Days Of Beauty Haul

Ulta 21 Days Of Beauty Haul

I’m going to start this post out by saying I’m going to try and keep this one shorter, but shorter is still going to be huge because this haul is massive, so if I were you I’d grab a drink, a snack and hunker down to read this one. I am slightly ashamed but at the same time I got some really good deals, the problem was that every time I would order I would pick up at least two other things with that order, so I have accumulated some stuff. So, let’s just jump right on into this instead of wasting time.


Laura Geller Baked Blush-N- Brighten in Pink Buttercream. This was something that I decided on really last minute, I went into the sale with no intention of picking any of these up until I realized that I already owned a mini and really wanted to pick up another, so this was the one that I settled on.

Makeup Revolution Triple Baked Blush in Candy Queen of Hearts. I’ve been eyeing this online for a little while so I just threw this in as an extra in my cart because I could, I am platinum so I didn’t need to get free shipping with my purchases, I just really wanted some things and figured why not.

Stila Huge Mascara. I’ve had a sample of this before and that was what inspired me to pick this one up, it was one of my favorite mascaras that I’ve ever tried but I just couldn’t bite the bullet, but it being half off meant that it wasn’t much more expensive than a drugstore mascara so I jumped on this one.

The Balm The Manizer Sisters Palette. Is one of the few things in this haul that I did not get at Ulta, I picked this up at Kohls because I had Kohls Cash and it made it like 8 dollars, and I’ve always wanted to try Mary and Cindy, plus I figure I’m never going to get through a full sized highlighter.

Lime Crime Velvetine in Blondie. Another thing that I did not pick up at Ulta, this was completely one of those internets made me buy it products, I was scrolling through Instagram and saw someone wearing it, then I just had to get my hands on it and now here it is in my possession.

Lipstick Queen in Saint Nude. These were on sale and I totally got suckered in by them, I’ve always wanted a Lipstick Queen lipstick for some reason and now I’ve gotten my hands on this one, I’m super excited about it.


Soap & Glory Peach Party Blush. This just looks really pretty and it was something that I wanted to try out, I haven’t had a whole lot of experience with Soap & Glory but I wanted to try some things out from the brand.

Buxom Full-On Lip Cream Sample in Dolly. I threw in a few of the sample products that I got just because I could, and it is part of the haul. I didn’t get the full size of this, even though I really wanted to but they were all sold out, so it is nice to have this one I just wish it were larger.

 Bath & Body Works Hand Cream in Melon Forever. A really random thing, but something that I figured I’d throw in here because I’m probably going to keep this one near my makeup, or at work.

Nyx Matte Liquid Liner in Black. I’ve heard nothing but praise about this product and I think I’m in the market for a new black eyeliner, so I decided to pick this one up and see how it does.

Fiona Stiles Micro Precision Brow Sculpting Pencil in Neutral Brown. Fiona Stiles was discounted as a brand due to them getting new packaging, at least that’s what I think is happening. I am regretting not picking up more from the brand, it seems like everyone is loving all of the products but I didn’t. Maybe I’ll try out more in the future.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara. Another mascara, I’ve heard such good things about this one and decided to pick it up during the sale, even though I really don’t need any more mascara but I have enough to get me through a long time now.

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in London. This was something that was inspired by my sister, she has this and wears it all the time, it looks so good on her that I decided to pick it up and hopefully it’ll look as good on me.

 Nyx Butter Gloss in Madeleine. I’ve always heard such good things about these lip glosses and I’m getting a bit more into the glossy kind of finish, so I decided to pick on of these up and see how it goes.

Nyx Liquid Suede in Sandstorm. I have another liquid suede and it is one of my favorite formulas, I wish they has more normal shades though because I’m not much of an out there kind of girl, though I do think it’s cool this line has so many ‘strange’ colors. I am excited to try out this color, it looks right up my alley.

Too Faced Love Flush Blush in How Deep Is Your Love. I have one of these and it’s my most worn blush easy, it’s just so easy and it is the cutest packaging. I am already regretting not picking up at least one more shade, these are so pretty and just such nice products. I’m probably going to pick up another one at some point.


Mac Prep + Prime Fix + in Coconut. I didn’t get this from Ulta, I actually ended up getting this from Macy’s because they have free shipping, at least on cosmetics. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this and I really love coconut types of scents, so I figured I really needed to pick this up.

E.l.f. Matte Magic Mist & Set. I have the other two types of this product from elf and I figured I would try them all out and see which one was best, plus I had a five dollar off coupon that I used which made this completely free.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea. I hated the smell of the rose one but I loved how it felt on the skin and what it did for my skin, so when I saw this one I knew that I had to pick it up. I love the smell of this one so much more than the other one, so this is a huge plus in my book.

Benefit Gimme Brow in 3 Medium. I picked this up for a dupe post, this was on sale just a few days before the sale really started, so we’ll have to wait and see how this one goes.

Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss in Frosted. This was something that I didn’t even know existed until the sale was announced and for some reason, it became something that I really had to have so I picked this up.

Essence Make Me Grow in Soft Browny Brows. I’ve been using this for months and really love it, but mine was near its end so I figured it was time to pick this up again, especially since I have a dupe post planned.


Nyx Pigment in Diamond & Egotastic. I have a few of these now and I really wanted to pick up a couple more, so that was what I did, I picked up two more and I’m super excited about it. One is basically glitter and the other is a really beautiful blue color.

Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer in Noir. I have the nude one of this, as some of you may already know, and I love it. I needed a new black pencil, something for tight lining mostly and since I’ve had such a positive experience with the nude one I decided to pick this one up.

Ulta Lip Primer. I picked this up on such a whim when the Ulta lip products were on sale, I wanted to try this as I haven’t tried any lip primers at all yet.

Too Faced Honey Lip Gloss. This was a free gift with purchase because I bought a few of those blushes, I got a couple as gifts, and this was what it came with. I think this is a really cool gift with purchase and I’m pretty happy to have this in my collection.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Sheer Rapture. I really wanted to pick at least one of these up ever since they released all of the shades, and that was what I did. This purchase was actually courtesy of a coupon I got at the recent grand opening. I’m jazzed about this one.

Butter London Plush Rush Lipgloss in Pillow Talk. Another thing that I decided to pick up on the fly, I didn’t intend to get it until about the day before, they sold out of the color that I really wanted and didn’t have it in the store either, so I settled for this one am excited to give it a try.

Aquaphor + Sunscreen. I really like Aquaphor on my lips now, it’s probably my favorite thing for my lips and this one has sunscreen in it which just makes this super extra awesome.


Nyx Perfect Filter Eyeshadow Palette in Olive You and Rustic Antique. I got both of these because I have no self-control plus these were buy one get one half off and I had a 5 dollar off coupon making these 2 for 25, so instead of deciding I just picked up both of them. I seriously don’t need any more eyeshadow.

Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in Aquarius. I have been a lot more into glosses, have heard a ton of good things about these and just wanted to pick one up, this color looked right up my alley too.

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in Light Bronze. Everyone on the internet who is interested in makeup seems to be talking about this and raving about how truly amazing it, I stayed away for a fair amount of time but have finally caved and picked this one up.

Physicians Formula Butter Blush in Plum Rose. I stumbled across this one, didn’t even know they made these until I was in the drugstore the other day, saw that they were 40% off and there was a 4 dollar off coupon attached so I really couldn’t resist that good of a deal.


Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes in Blushing Bride & Captivating. I really wanted to pick up more of these two, but instead of being crazy pants and getting them all, I settled for two and am super excited to try them out. I may also pick up some more of these in the future, we’ll see how that goes.

Milani Baked Blush in Bella Bellini. I was in a Walgreens looking for something else and knew these had just come out, but I figured they wouldn’t have the new colors, I was wrong. I didn’t want to pick up both because they weren’t on sale so I kept it to one, showing some sort of restraint. I’m super excited about this one because the formula of these are amazing and this color is gorgeous!

Nyx Matte Blotting Sheets. This is just something that I’ve never tried before and I’ve noticed my skin getting a little bit more oily so I figured it couldn’t hurt to try these out.

Beauty Bakerie Lip Whip in Fortune Cookie. I wanted to try a lighter shade than the one that I already had so I went for this one and I am mildly annoyed because it looks like it might almost be the same shade, I haven’t swatched them side by side by they look the same in the tube and fairly similar swatched.

Anastasia Brow Whiz in Taupe. Another product that I picked up for a future dupe post and I’m really excited about it, I’m ready to try this one out because the whole of the beauty community seems to really love this stuff.

Benefit They’re Real Sample. I’ve tried this before and have really enjoyed it, so I’m excited to have another sample in my clutches.

Milani Make It Last Setting Spray. I was on a mission to find this, it seems to be really popular and I’m really curious to see how well it actually works. So, I found this and will be testing this out very soon.

Butter London Nail Polish in Minted. This was on sale, not one of the beauty sales but just a normal run of the mill sale, so I picked up one in a shade that I thought would be really gorgeous and perfect for spring.

China Glaze Nail Polish in I Just Cant-aloupe and Moment in the Sunset. These are the last things in the haul and I’m excited to wrap this up. These were also on sale, as pretty much everything in the haul was, so I picked up two because of that and I think both will make really good spring and summer colors, I’m itching to try these out.

Now, let’s get into some swatches because this haul wasn’t already long enough.

I’m really annoyed with myself because I had swatches for all of the other eye products, but I accidently deleted the photo from my uploads and no longer have the original, so there will not be swatches of those products but I did get most of them at least?

Anyway, this is the end of my massive haul, I have one more haul planned for the Sephora sale coming up and the Ulta 20% off sale, then I am on a hard ban until at least June when I go home for a little while, even then I’m probably going to be on a low buy but I’m being realistic about the fact that I’m not going to not buy things while I’m out of the state. I don’t really need anything else and I have tons of new things to play with and review. I have so many new things/

2017 Empties #2


Yes, it’s only been about a month and I’m back with another empties post, it’s mostly because I’ve had both of them waiting and ready to go for a little while now but I’m trying to get this one up on the blog before I have the third one ready. So, today I’m gonna be talking about some trash, a fair amount of trash actually. Let’s get into it and see what I’ve used up recently.


Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly. Whoosh was my first shower jelly and still is one of my favorites to this day, it’s a really good product in the morning and I will for sure be picking up another one at some point in time.

Lush Bouncy Bunny Shower Jelly. I really enjoyed this, in fact, I believe I used up both of the ones I had up and I would completely repurchase this one if they ever brought it back.

Lush Strawberry Santa Shower Jelly. I hated this, this was something I used mostly to make bubbles mixed with other products because I hated the smell of this one so much.

Lush American Pie Shower Jelly. I loved that this was pink so much! I also enjoyed the smell of this a fair amount, it’s not my favorite scent ever but I don’t mind it, I probably wouldn’t pick this one up again.

Lush Celebrate Solid Perfume. I wouldn’t pick this up again, I adore the smell and thin that it smells amazing but I just don’t like the application process of this, it’s just a pain and the scent that doesn’t last as long as I would like.

Lush Calacas Shower Gel. Quite possibly my favorite shower gel, I already have another one and I will probably purchase another once that one is gone because this shower gel is fantastic. Seriously, I would suggest if you like citrusy scents and Lush to hunt this down and get it.

Not Your Mothers Way To Grow Conditioner. I am not sure how many of these I have been through since I started using these, but I am really happy with this conditioner and I have one in the shower and one as a backup as of right now.

Caudalie Vino Source Moisturizing Sorbet. I really enjoyed this little sample, I’ve enjoyed everything that I’ve gotten from this brand thus far, and this was no exception, not sure if I would purchase the full size of this or not, though.


Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water in Waterproof. I love this stuff! This is seriously my favorite makeup remover ever, I already have another one, and I’ll probably continue buying it forever. Unless they discontinue it or somehow I find something that works better, but until that day this is something I see myself using for a while.

Bath & Bodyworks Blackberry Bramble Tea Candle. I had so many of these, I seriously probably bought four or five of these but this is my last one and I’m kind of sad to see it go, this smelled like a spiced blueberry muffin to me and that was something I loved, it smells so homey. I would for sure pick more of these up if I ever ran across them again.

Katy Perry Meow Perfume. This is something I adored when I bought it but over time it just became something that I no longer used or loved, but I did power through the last bit and use it up. This scent is a little bit sweet and musky, I still love sweet scents but it’s just not for me anymore. The packaging is the cutest, though, isn’t it?

Victoria Secret Pink Warm and Cozy Body Mist. I enjoy this, I have another one of these now but mostly because it came in a gift set, I will probably enjoy that one too although it has been knocked off as my favorite. I would suggest this if you are into warmer sweet scents.

Ouai Treatment Mask. This was just a sample but I enjoyed it, I don’t think I would purchase the full size just because this sample was so small I could only try it one time and that’s not enough for me to decide on a product, especially one that’s a little bit more expensive. I did like it when I tried it though, just not sure about a full size.


Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant. This is a product that I did not enjoy, it was just a sample and I used it up, but it wasn’t something that was exciting or particularly enjoyable for me. So this is for sure something that I won’t be picking up in a full size.

Wet ‘N Wild Illumi-Naughty Highlighting and Concealing Pen in I-Vory Into You. This is one of my favorite concealers ever, I’ve been through five or six probably in the past year, I’ve not repurchased a new one yet but that is because I have purchased way too many concealers as of recently but I’ll probably pick up another one of these sometime.

Pacifica Hawaiian Ruby Guava. I like the smell of this but it’s probably not one that I would repurchase again, it smells almost like a coconutty tropical Slurpee, which I like but it’s just not one I’m itching to get back to. I love the Pacifica fragrances so much, though, so I would for sure recommend them to anyone and everyone as they have a bunch of different scents.

Studio Beauty Night Calming Makeup Remover Wipes. I love these, these are my go to makeup remover wipes and they probably will be unless I stumble across something better, I feel like I’m trying new things but also always have one of these as a backup because they are just that good.

Maybelline Color Whisper in Made It Mauve. These are really great, they are nice lightweight but moisturizing lip colors, they give more of a sheer wash of color but I really like that. The other thing that I really like about these are the smell, they smell kind of like sweet watermelon candy and that is always a plus in my book. So I would repurchase this and recommend.

Milani Grapefruit Oil Lip Treatment. I found these last summer and I’ve been in love with them since, they are so moisturizing and affordable lip treatments. I’ve gotten three different scents now and I’ve loved them all, I think grapefruit might be my favorite and I’ll probably pick another one up once I’m through the one that I’m currently using, which is peach.

Tarte FriXXXtion Stick.  This has a really terrible name, I really just don’t like it and think that it’s kind of stupid, but that is the only thing that I didn’t enjoy about this product. Everything else was great, even if I was skeptical at first. The stick was really easy to use and it leaves me feeling really clean and my skin feeling so soft, I’m really debating picking up a full size of this one even.

Those are all of the products that I’ve used up recently, at the rate I’m going I’m sure I’ll be back next month with another empties. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see really.

What products have you guys used up recently?
