HUGE Empties # 6

This is a HUGE empties post because I haven't done one of these posts in a little while and it's all just been piling up. I'm not going to go into TOO much detail about the products because this post is going to be pretty lengthy as it is.

Boots Botanics Cleansing Toner All Bright
This is fine. I've bought this a couple times now, it's pretty cheap and it does the job but it's not my favourite toner ever. (If you're wondering, the best one I've ever tried is the Elemis Ginseng toner).

Maybelline The Falsies
I hate this at first but slowly grew to love it. I found it really clumpy at the beginning but I think I just had to alter the way I used it a bit and then it was pretty good, although it did dry up quite quickly. I recommend this if you're looking for a cheap drugstore mascara though.

Clairol Nice'N'Easy Colourseal Conditioning Gloss
Nothing to complain or rave about here. This is okay, I got it with my hairdye box but you can buy these separately, although I don't recommend you do.

L'Occitane Verbena Conditioner
This smells really nice and herby. It was so small though I can't really say if it did anything for my hair but it does smell good.

John Frieda Colour Renew Tone-Correcting Conditioner
I don't notice any difference with the John Frieda Tone-Correcting range so I don't recommend it. I prefer Pro:voke Touch of Silver which is a lot cheaper too. (The L'Oréal Professional and Kérastase toners are good too).

Caudalie Permier Cru The Cream
I really loved trying these samples, I found them extremely rich and luxurious.

Caudalie Vinexpert Night Infusion Cream
These were samples but I did find that they were really nice and moisturising - I might look into getting these when I have more money!

Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Matifying Fluid
Fine. I don't have oily skin so this isn't really made for my kind of skin.

Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulée
I love this, I never use up lip products but I went through phases of only ever wearing this. I definitely need to go out and get a new one!

Maybelline Stay Matte Concealer
This is one of those ones with the green centre to counteract redness. This is pretty good if you want a concealer in stick for to carry around with you. The lightest colour is great for my skin tone.

Tresemmé Keratin Smooth Mask
This is a really great hair mask actually and I love the whole line of these products. I found this really smoothed out my hair and left it really soft.

The Body Shop Body, Room & Linen Spritz in Green Tea & Lemon and Pomegranate & Raspberry
I absolutely love these. I hate room fresheners, I find they usually smell really artificial and powdery. These however, are absolutely amazing. They smell really fresh and you can wear them as perfumes too which is great.

Cutex Nourishing Nail Polish Remover
Nothing to say. This was fine. I don't even know why I included this. I just buy whatever nail polish remover is the cheapest and preferably acetone-free.

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Hairspray
I feel like John Frieda just doesn't do anything for me anymore. This was an okay hairspray but absolutely nothing to rave about and there is no reason why this is specifically for blonde hair.

Right Guard Xtreme Dry 72hr Protection
This is bloody awful. I am sticking to Mitchum from now on when it comes to drugstore deodorants. I kept find powdery dust all over my room and I thought it was paint coming off my walls but it was this. It leaves you underarms looking like they are covered in dandruff. AWFUL.

No7 Eyelash Curler
I lost the other pad for this and it just wasn't doing anything anymore. I'd like to try a higher end eyelash curler. My mom has the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers and she loves those so I might give those a whirl.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in Ivory
The colour range for this is appalling. The lightest shade is really orangey pink on my skin and by no means 'Ivory'. I liked it at first but I think that was just because everyone else did too. I find it's too thick, too cakey, too glittery and just really unnatural. I am so glad to be done with this! It did smell nice however, but unless they come out with new shades I will not be repurchasing this.

Bourjois 1.2.3 Perfect Foundation 
This was fine, but has nothing on Healthy Mix so I just wanted to finish it up. It didn't blow me away and I think it had oxidised by the end because it went a little orangey.

Accessorize Flutter Curl Mascara
I don't know if this was just the one I got but it was completely dried out and it felt empty from day one. It's a shame because the brush looked really promising but I don't want to risk buying another one and wasting money on it.

Lancome Hypnose Mascara 
 I'd had this for years before deciding it was time to say adios. It's a really weird, sheer, glittery purple mascara - I think it was given to me about 4 - 6 years ago. I used it a few times I think, it never went clumpy to be fair but I just never wear it and I don't really want to risk putting something that old near my eyeballs.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir
I thought this would be my last bottle ever. I tried ladies and gentlemen, I tried. I just don't feel like my makeup is finished until I spritz a bit of this all over my face. It gets rid of that powdery effect and I also really like it was a toning spray before bed or when I'm feeling ill. I know this has alcohol and stuff in it but I just miss it when I don't have it!

Natural Collection Clear Mascara
I used this as an eyebrow gel - I'm not going to lie, it didn't really do a thing. It didn't hold my eyebrows in place. I do not recommend you buying this, even though the price tag is pretty attractive.

Maybelline Black Gel Liner
I love this but this one dried out, I have another one that I am using at the moment.

Cargo Eyeshadow Duo
I got this in a set years ago and it was quite nice although they aren't really my kind of colours. Anyway I looked at it the other day and it had somehow smashed so there you go.

Bourjois Eyeshadow in 16 Ambre Nude
The colour payoff of this little guy is awful and it's really glittery so I just never found myself reaching for it. I'm throwing this out because I will never use it.

And that is all! Sorry if that was too overwhelming but I really just wanted to throw this all out once and for all. I hate having empties just lying around!

  1. I love a long empties post! It's good to have a clear out sometimes too, if you don't ever wear an eyeshadow there's not point hanging onto is :) I didn't know the Caudalie Beauty Elixir had alcohol in it- I was ready to pick a bottle up but may reconsider now :(
