How proud am I, more makeup empties for the month of August! I’m patting myself on the back anyway 🙂
|Random Beauty Empties|
I’m going to start with the random beauty favourites, first up the hair dyes that I’ve been playing with. Both are from Schwarzkopf Color XXL, the Ultra Brights is semi permanent Purple Punk* and the HD Intense Colour is a permanent colour in Mystic Violet*. My hair did’t really take to either of these dyes, I have some seriously stubborn hair! I have another one of the permanent colours left which I’m going to test out. After that I might have to bleach my hair and try again! I might repurchase in future. Unsurprisingly I’ve finished some Cotton wool pads* from boots, I’ve repurchased. I’ve finished up a Pampers* baby wipes, I tend to use these to remove swatches or when I’m messing with my makeup. I’m using up some other wipes but would repurchase again if they’re on offer.
From Lush I’ve finally finished my Twilight Bath Ballistic, I broke this in half and got two uses out of it. I really enjoyed it and I will undoubtedly buy more bath bombs soon.
So you may recognise some of these from my Project Pan Update. I’m getting rid of My Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua*, it just doesn’t work for me. I’m also chucking the Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer* in Pearl, this was another product that didn’t work for me, I found it too heavy, thick and it ended up looking cakey. From Benefit I’ve finished up the “that gal” brightening face primer*, I won’t be repurchasing for now, I did enjoy this product but I just have other products that need more love. I’m throwing away my Flawless Face Blender from Crown Brush, I did really like this, it is thoroughly dead and smells a bit funny now. I’m testing the Real Techniques version now. I’m getting rid of the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, I really do not like this at all, I’m getting rid of it. I’ve finally used up majority of the 17 Barely There* eyeshadow trio, I already have a backup of this. I’m chucking the Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion, I’m not sure this is available anymore. It has also turned funny.
From bareMinerals I have to throw out the Flawless Definition mascara in aqua blast, it’s all dried out now, this was a limited edition, so no repurchasing. My Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal* in Jet Black has all dried up, I have enough black eyeliner pencils to last me for quite some time, no repurchasing for now! My Sally Hansen Miracle Cure* has gotten too thick to be of use, I would possibly repurchase in the future, again I have other bases to use. From Nivea I have finished the Pearly Shine* lip balm, I won’t be repurchasing, I was thoroughly sick of this by the end of it! I’ve finished another Nivea hand cream, this one was Express Hydration*. Unfortunately I’ve finished up my much beloved GlamGlow YouthMud mask, I may repurchase one day. I’ve sadly emptied my sample of Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream, I did really like this but I’ve a few other eye creams to test out.

We’re almost there! I finished up the Rituals Touch of Happiness body cream, I got this as part of a set, it was ok, I wouldn’t repurchase. From Caudalie I have finished a travel size of the Divine Oil*, I did really like this for my super dry legs, I have another travel size to use and I might consider buying it in future, my only annoyance is that it doesn’t spread as nicely as I would like so you end up using it up quickly. I sadly used up my Bee Good Honey & Wild Mint 3-in-1 Cleansing Water, I really did love this but it’s £10 for 100ml and I seem to go through it quickly, on the other hand a portion of the profits help to support British Bees. I may repurchase in future, I really did love it. I’m managed to use up my Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing balm, I alternated this with other cleansers and may repurchase in future but I will always prefer my Emma Hardie. This is great is you’re on a budget, although slightly drying after repeated use. Finally, I’ve used up a Mitchum Advanced Control deodorant in Waterlily, I liked this and would likely repurchase at some point, I generally use the roll on versions.
So that’s it! Well done for reading all of that!! You deserve a high five. If you’d rather watch it than read all of the above you can check out the video below.
