Makeup Empties

Hi Ladies!
Today I am going to do my first empties post. It has taken me a while to come up with enough empty products to talk about. I would say it has taken about 3-4 months to get use up all of these empty products. Therefore, this will not be a monthly post that I do.

On to the empties:

 Elf Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths- Each packet has about 20 cleansing cloths. I use about one wipe a day so I use about a pack and a half a month. These wipes are only $3.00 for 20 to they are really affordable. The wipes are pretty big so you only need one. I will definitely repurchase these.

Nyx HD Concealer in Beige- This is currently my HG Concealer. I just purchased a new one and use it daily. I will repurchase once I run out of my current one unless I stumble upon an even better concealer.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Flex Mascara- I really liked this mascara. It gave me great volume and drama and was only about $5.00. I am currently using this original Scandaleyes Mascara in the orange tube. I have recieved 5 different mascaras for my birthday so I will not buy repurchasing mascaras for a while.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner- I love this liner so much. I want to say it lasts me about a whole year! I don't use it everyday but do use it several times a week. I have purchased maybe 3 or 4 of these and will repurchase once I run out.

  Organix Coconut Milk Conditioner- This is one of my favorite shampoo/conditioner brands and scents. I used this everyday before I started dying my hair. It affordable, smells lovely, and makes my hair feel soft. I will probably repurchase but I only start using this once my hair color really starts to fade.

Batiste Dry Shampoo- I am so glad I found out about this product. It works great at covering up my greasy roots. I recently repurchased but tried a different scent/type from the Batiste brand. It was the leopard print bottle. It actually comes out SO WHITE on my hair and makes it look gray. The original did not do this. I recently repurchased the original since the leopard one did not work quite the same.

Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner- I purchased this once I started dying my hair red/auburn. My hair dresser suggested I use to to help my color stay. I really don't love this shampoo or conditioner. I don't feel like my hair feels clean after using it. I did repurchase just because I don't know what other product to try. I am open to trying a new color extend shampoo/conditioner as long as it is not more money than this. 

Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair Hair Mask- I got this in my Ipsy bag a couple months ago. I really liked the scent of this and it did make my hair feel soft. I probably won't repurchase since I can find cheaper priced hair masks that work just as well.

 Tarte Maracuja Oil- I have been using this since January and did a review on it HERE. After I used up the two deluxe samples in the picture above, I purchased a rollerball since it was the cheapest option. After using the rollerball for a few months I can tell you it does not apply the same. Its really hard to get the same amount of product onto my face with the rollerball (vs the dropper that the deluxe samples come with). I will most likely not repurchase because I don't like the rollerball and refuse to spend $46.00 on the next size up. I will look for another less expensive face oil.

Clarins Truly Matte Hydra Matte Lotion- I used this when I suddenly ran out of my Kate Somerville Moisturizer. I found it in my closet with other samples. I didn't have time to get a new moisturizer for a couple days so this sample worked as a temporary fix. It was ok, not super moisturizing. I will not purchase.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream-I usually use this product every night and it takes about 3 months to use this jar up. I am currently trying a new eye cream but have a feeling I am going to end up back to purchasing this product.

Estee Lader Day Wear Oil Free Face Cream- I have used this product for several years and run out about every 3 months. Recently, I decided to try another moisturizer but like the eye cream, I have a feeling I'm going to end up back with this product. I might try the gel instead of the cream though.

Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturizer- I recently tried this out for a few months and will just posted a review. Not to spoil my review but I will not be repurchasing this product.

Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant- I love cocoa butter and use this daily. My skin does not like heavily fragrant lotions and creams so this is the only lotion that I use. It gets itchy when I use other products. I will definitely repurchase this.

Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract-I love this exfoliator and use it every night. It has grittiness to it but is not super abrasive. I have used this since 2006 and will continue to repurchase.

Clarins Water Comfort One Step Cleanser with Mint Essential Water- I also love this product and use it daily. I use it every morning when I wake up. I started off using the Water Comfort with peach essential back in 2006. It was for normal/dry skin. A few years ago I switched to the mint essential for combination/oily skin. I recommend both. I run out of both this and the exfoliator about every 3 months. I will repurchase this for sure.

MAC Brush Cleaner- I think this is a really good brush cleaner and have purchased it several times. I am almost done with the current bottle that I am using. I will most likely repurchase.

MAC Fix +-I have been using this setting spray for years and really love it. I am almost done with my travel size Fix + too. I am trying out the UD DeSlick Setting spray but may end up repurchasing this Fix + too.

MAC Zoomlash Mascara-I really like this mascara. It give good drama to my lashes but some people may not like the brush or formula of the mascara. It is a bit wet. I repurchased this several times but have found cheaper mascaras that I like just as much as this. I won't be repurchasing any time soon.

MAC Brow Pencil in Lingering- This was my HG brow product for that past 2 years however, I recently started using Anastasia Dipbrow. The dipbrow has quickly become my HD brow product and replaced this brow pencil. I will not be repurchasing this pencil anytime soon.

MAC Paint Pot in Painterly-This was my HG Eyeshadow base for a long time. I started trying out different shadow primers and ended up purchasing the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. I have been using that primer for months but recently repurchased Painterly. Now I am not sure which product that I love more!

I hope that you enjoyed my long empties post!
