Empties: Would I Repurchase?

Sometimes it’s sad running out of a product, but it’s also strangely satisfying to finally work your way through a beauty product because I don’t know about you, but a lot of stuff I have ends up sitting unused for a lot longer than it should. 

I’ve been saving my empties so I could let you know which things I’ve given a real good try and if it’s something I’d purchase again or not.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

This used to be my favorite, but I’ve since discovered two mascaras I like even more (IT Superhero Lash and Too Faced Better Than Sex). It’s definitely a good mascara and I love the brush, but I did find I got a fair bit of transfer to my eyelid throughout the day. Having deep set eyes doesn’t help though! 

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

There’s a reason this is the bestselling mascara on Sephora. It’s a great formula with a great brush! I’m going to try the waterproof version for summer.

Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation Stick

Yes - already have!

I used to use the liquid formula of this foundation, but I really love the convenience of a stick foundation. This one mixed with the Hourglass stick foundation is one of my all time favorite foundations.  I use COLOR: 117 = Y225 - Marble

First Aid Beauty Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer

I loved that this worked really well as a primer and provided a smooth base (and smells great!) but you can also wear it on its own for a subtle glow. Works really well mixed with foundation, too.

FRESH Fresh Face Instant Glow Luminizer

Yes, but...

I really love this product. It smells AMAZING (like the best cucumber scent you’ve ever smelled!) and when I bought it, they only had the Starlight version which is a pearly, opalescent luminizing moisturizer. It’s gorgeous on its own or under/mixed with foundation. They’ve since added a golden one called Sunset, and I’d love to try that one. The one caveat is that you only get 1 ounce of product and it’s almost $50 CAD so you go through it fast.

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter

I love the powder version of this product so I had to try the liquid one too. Rather than use this as a highlight though, I usually mix it with foundation or apply it before foundation and it makes you look so glowy! 

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

People raved about this so I was excited for it, but I just didn't love it. Found it creased easily and wasn't very full coverage. I seem to be the exception though, so you might love it!

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer

Yes - already did!

This heat protecting and hair priming spray smells sooo good and a bottle goes a really long way. I have really fine hair and I love that this didn’t weigh my locks down at all but made it feel really soft. 

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish

This certainly wasn't a bad product, but once I ran out of it, I never found myself missing it or even thinking about it until I did this post. I've been using Kristin Ess Thickening Spray lately, and I love it.

I'll update this as I go but that's all for now!
