Empties # 5

I told you there would be another 'Empties' post soon! I'm doing well, right?
Here are some products I actually really fact there isn't one product here that I wouldn't consider repurchasing (minus maybe the Rimmel Stay Matte powder). I love finishing products, there is something really satisfying about it because I hate the fact that I'm a massive hoarder. I'll be talking about the products starting from the top left and going clockwise.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir
I spoke about this in my last 'Empties' post so if you want to know what I think of this then click here.

Korres Wild Rose Instant Brightening Mask
I absolutely love this face mask for when my skin is looking a little bit dull and I need a quick pick-me-up. It smells lovely and floral and I just think it does a really good job and brightening up my kind of dry/dull complexion. I don't think I will be buying this again just yet, only because I think my skin looks more dull in the Winter rather than the warmer months.

Pro:voke Touch of Silver - Silver Revitalising Dry Shampoo
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I love the 'Touch of Silver' range because my hair is incredibly prone to brassy/orange tones. I have had so many hair disasters resulting in my hair turning bright orange and I find this range to be amazing at keeping those unwanted tones at bay. I'm not massively into dry shampoo, my hair is quite dry and doesn't tend to get very greasy at all so I usually use dry shampoo when I want a bit of volume or very rarely whenI haven't had time to wash my hair for days. I have no complaints about this, I will be repurchasing it in the near future. I love the silvery effect of this dry shampoo - it's really subtle and natural.

L'Occitane Date Bouquet Hand Cream
This came free in some magazine or another and I cannot tell you how amazing this smells - I'm not even a fan of dates. I think this was limited edition so I don't know if you can get your hands on this but if you can, I would highly recommend you doing so. I really want the almond hand cream now...

The Body Shop Baked Bronzer in 02 Warm Glow
If you are really pale like me, this bronzer is amazing for a really subtle, natural glow and this would be an amazing highlighter on darker skin. In the pan it looks very similar to MAC Soft & Gentle but it is a little bit darker and the shimmer is much finer. It has golden, pink and champagne tones in it and just gives a really beautiful glow to the skin. I actually got given one of these as a present too so I don't have to repurchase a new one just yet. It also works nicely as an eyeshadow.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent
People rave about this but I don't quite get the big deal. I don't get particularly shiny skin and I don't like a powdered look, so I just used this to set my makeup and it worked fine for that. However, it is a little bit chalky and I would prefer something with a more satin/velvety finish. But I guess it does the job and it's not pricey!

Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm (Stick Form)
This is not as good as the Reve de Miel lip balm in the tub but it's nice. I don't think the stick version is much better than any other stick lip balms I've tried in the past but it smells nice and I don't have any complains about it.

Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara
I LOVE THIS MASCARA. I really like both drugstore and high street mascaras so I'm not really snobby about that kind of thing. This is an amazing mascara in terms of giving really great volume without being clumpy and I have actually noticed that when I don't use this my lashes tend to fall out more. So I actually think this has helped thicken my lashes! (Obviously I have another one of these in my drawer, ready to be opened....)
