Empties! How often do you completely finish a product? I’m going to go ahead and guess- not very often. Hey, I am honestly the same way! I either get too many products I want to try, things end up going bad, or I just don’t love a product enough to finish.
When I do finish a product, that usually means I really loved the product. I didn’t get bored with it, never use it, or forget about it. It is usually a product that I really enjoyed using and used it often! I love reading and watching empties posts but I rarely do them! I tend to forget and throw things away or like I said…just don’t finish many items.
However, I have been keeping an eye on my products and planning an empties post! These are both completely empty and close enough to empty to mention. Like I said, I don’t do them often so I figured I’d go ahead and include the items that are just close to empty.
I thought it would be helpful to also share whether or not I plan or have repurchased this item. That shows even more love for a product in my eyes! I personally prefer videos and posts that share that, so I hope you do as well! Let’s take a look at what products I have finally emptied!
Empties Spring 2018
Urban Decay Primer Potion Eyeshadow Primer
I have purchased a few of these primers over the years and still go back to it! I love the consistency, application, and the nude color. The formula isn’t greasy or drying at all, something sometimes hard to find for me. I will also say, this lasts me a very long time. I normally just buy a travel size and it will still last me months- a little goes a long way. Just a few weeks ago, I purchased a full size for the first time just because during Ulta’s 21 days of beauty it was half off!
Obviously, I love this product enough because I have already repurchased it! I have tried other eye primers (keep reading) and never found one I love more than this one.
Will I repurchase? Yes! Already have 5/5
Buxom Lash Mascara
I only recently picked this up from Sephora because I had a free coupon after purchasing one of their Sephora Favorite’s Mascara sets. (Side note, definitely try those! Great way to try expensive mascaras!) I felt like this one was my favorite from the set of 5, so I went ahead and chose that one. Let’s just say, I was a little let down that I picked that one. It was in my April Favoites because at first it was a good mascara but ran out way too fast!
I’m not sure what changes from the travel size to the full but I found this mascara to have nothing special at all. It did nothing to my lashes, in fact, barely even coated them. I was completely disappointed in it! And, I just grabbed this and I’m already out! My Maybelline mascara’s do much better.
Will I repurchase? Nope 2/5 – nothing special
NYM Royal Honey and Melon Leave-in Conditioner
Y’all should know if I will repurchase this…I talk about it all the time. It’s been in favorites, hair care, and more! I 100% love this conditioner. I have thick, tangled hair and this seems to honestly do the trick. The smell is to die for as well. It really seeps into my hair and holds the shiny, soft feel.
I don’t do a lot of steps for my hair honestly and this is one I rarely ever skip. I love that it is so affordable because heaven knows I will be repurchasing ASAP. Perfect for any care types, my family loves it too.
Will I repurchase? Absolutely 5/5Emtpies! What products did I love enough to finish? Will I buy again? Click To Tweet
Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer (travel size)
This is one of the few items from Ipsy that I have actually completely finished! (They tend to go in a drawer and I forget about them…hence why I stopped Ipsy) Anyway, I was so excited to try this because I had always heard such great things about it. I mean, Smashbox seems to be the leader in primers so I figured the lid primer would be just as good.
Honestly, I included this in my empties even as a sample size because I was pretty unimpressed with it. I think it helped keep my shadow in place but it didn’t beat out my primer potion. I know for some people this is much better-it’s all about preference! I however really wasn’t impressed by how it worked.
Will I repurchase? No 3/5 Enjoy others better
Laura Mercier Translucent Powder
*All the tears* I’m obsessed with this powder like many other beauty people are. A powder never seems to be an exciting item for me, but this powder is different! I normally hate loose powders but this one is worth the hassle. I am so sad that this is almost empty…I know I will buy it again because it is worth it but holy cow, it’ll be a pretty penny.
I will say that this powder has lasted me since July when I received it to review from Influenster. Honestly one of my best boxes by far. I am thinking about buying the travel size and seeing how long that lasts me. I will say if you love and enjoy makeup, try this powder!
Will I repurchase? Oh Yes 5/5
the Balm Scuba Water Resistant Mascara
Another mascara, sorry! I received this complimentary from Influenster in a Kohls Beauty Box. I had never really tried any of the Balm items and was thoroughly impressed with this mascara! It is water resistant which I like because it isn’t as tar-like as waterproof. It has a little more staying power but easy to remover with Micellar water or another remover.
The wand is a very thin long one which I found really helpful for my bottom lashes and spreading out any clumps on top. I’m a bit on the fence about repurchasing…I really did love it but it seems a little pricey for not a real “high end” brand. The only real place that sells it is Kohls or online. I am going to keep thinking but I might actually go ahead and repurchase if I have some extra money. I was sad when I realized this was going to be part of my empties!
Will I repurchase? On the fence 4/5
Wet n Wild Photo Focus Concealer
I purchased this when I bought the foundation. I will say this: I love it to cover spots or discoloration but I hated it for under eye brightening. I purchased the lightest shade and it was still too dark to highlight my under eyes. So what I end up doing is wearing Tarte under my eyes and then this concealer over any breakouts or discoloration. If you aren’t as fair as I am, then this concealer would work well under your eyes. The consistency and application are great; just wasn’t light enough for my skin tone. And it is sucy a great price!
Will I repurchase? Most likely 4/5
What products have you finished lately? I can’t wait to hear!
I love the UD primer potion, I use it every day! That melon conditioner sounds sooo nice, I’ve got to try it! 🙂
