September and October Empties! - Must finish everything

Hi everyone!
Empties - September & October 2013
Yay empties! Super late I know, but better late than never right? I haven't used up a lot of things in the past couple of months since I made sure to stock up right before school started. This means next month's will be bigger. But I still used up some stuff! I'm the type of person to open new products without finishing the old one, so this month is filled with trying to finish the half bottles up!

Empties - September & October 2013
Softsoap Juicy Pomegranate & Mango Infusions
Repurchase: Yes
One of my all time favorite scents! It's not too fruity either. I get paranoid with too sweet of scents...I think that bugs will come and eat me. :( But this is not the case here! It's perfect for the summer time! 

Satin Care Sensitive Skin Aloe & Vitamin E Shave Gel
Repurchase: Maybe
Leaves my legs feeling smooth and silky! I like that there isn't a strong fragrance to this. Putting down maybe for now since I do like this product, but I like to switch things up!

Empties - September & October 2013
Aveeno Nourish + Strengthen Shampoo and Conditioner
Repurchase: Yes! (Already did!)
I've always wanted to try the Aveeno hair products! I really like how it made my hair feel smooth and hydrated. Love. Hydration.

Pixi Flawless Beauty Flawless Beauty Primer
Repurchase: No
The "lit-from-within-glow" is a bit too much for my tastes. I tried it under liquid, powder, and mineral foundations. I looked like a greasy disco ball. No go. But a little does go a long way!

Empties - September & October 2013
Equate Age Resisting Daily Renewal Cleanser
Repurchase: No
I was in a rush looking for my Olay Age Defying Daily Renewal Cleanser, and the Walmart I went to ran out. So I grabbed this instead. It is definitely not comparable to the Olay. This cleanser left a film on my skin after use and I could barely feel the microbeads. I tried to finish the bottle because I don't like to waste money. But I just couldn't stand that formulation, so I'm tossing it with 1/3 left.

Calvin Klein Runway Radiance Illuminating Cream
Repurchase: Maybe
I've had this for a LONG time now. When my skin was at its most sensitive in high school, all I could use was this. Super duper gentle! I had a little left that I diluted with water to wash my makeup brushes. 

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer
Repurchase: Yes
This moisturizer has been my go-to moisturizer for awhile now. I like a thicker formulation in the winter times, but this is always a favorite in the warmer summer times. Lightweight and absorbs fast!

Empties - September & October 2013
Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer in 01 - Light
Repurchase: Probably
I really enjoyed this concealer! It's creamy and has medium-heavy coverage, but it's not drying. Fantastic for my undereyes. I still have a few of these left in sample form, so no repurchasing just yet.

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Cream Light 4-5
Repurchase: Discontinued
A good powder for sure. I'm not on the obsessive band-wagon, but I truly am sad that it's discontinued. It was light and didn't clog pores.

Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer in Cream Light 4-5
Repurchase: Discontinued
Finally finished this little sucker. Some people really adore this product, but it wasn't a favorite for me. It was too drying for my undereyes. I had an allergic reaction to a skincare product and made part of my face all blotchy and red, so I used this to cover it up! I liked it with that purpose a lot better than undereyes!

Amazing Cosmetics Concealer in Medium Golden
Repurchase: Yes
Thank you Sephora MUA! The little sample jar contained so much product! And with this concealer, a little goes a loooong way. I really enjoy it for my undereyes.

Bourjois Brush Concealer in Beige
Repurchase: No
I did not like this product at all. It's supposed to be applied over dark circles and eyelids for a radiant look, but all it did was make me look even more tired. A little does go along way with this product though. It is however too easy to click out too much product (twist click applicator). I ended up finishing this as a sheer foundation.

Empties - September & October 2013
NYC Liquid Eyeliner in Jet Black
Repurchase: No
So I bought this a long time ago when I read that this is Megan Fox's favorite eyeliner. Plus it's ultra cheap, so why not right? But I didn't like this liner at all. Application is nice, but I feel like I drew tape on my eyes every time I used it. The liner after drying just felt like tape. 

Maybelline Falsies Volum' Express - Black Drama
Repurchase: No
I really like the curve of the wand, making it easy to apply. But all this mascara did is clump my lashes. No go. Maybelline makes many lovelier mascaras for me than this!

Wet 'n' Wild Mega Length Mascara
Repurchase: No
Wet 'n' Wild weren't kidding when they said mega length! They were able to pull my little lashes up and up! But they wouldn't stay that way. The wet formulation is a bit too much for my lashes, thus, no for repurchase.

E.L.F. Cream Eyeliners - Coffee and Black
Repurchase: No
A great $3 pricing on these little guys, but I'm not going to be repurchasing simply because I have a lot of other eyeliners I'm going through and these just dry out too fast. I was able to use ~80% of the container, but the rest just shriveled up. 

Bath and Body Works Wall Flower - Orange Ginger
Repurchase: Yes
I love love love this scent. I'm not a huge fan of this in lotion form however. It doesn't moisturize much for me, I just really like the scent. So I purchased some wallflowers, making my apartment smell like this all the time. 

And that's it! Have you used any of these items? What do you think of them?

Until next time,

  1. Applaud you for finishing up so many products!! WOOHOOO! I dont know about you but there is something liberating in empties - especially makeup! A reason to purchase new makeup, perhaps? The Amazing Cosmetics concealer sounds interesting, looking up your review on it after!
