January Empties

I've been saving up my empty containers to show you what I've used up, and my thoughts on the products. It's more like November, December and January empties - but this is it....


one - Origins Modern Friction  - This is a facial exfoliater which I have had for a while and only used about half of. It is very lemony smelling, which I love - but that combined with the rough bits which exfoliate your skin, going in your eyes as you rinse it off = nightmare. It didn't do anything amazing for my skin, didn't slough off enough dead cells for my liking, and where I've left it for a while, it's gone all sticky and gloopy. I won't be repurchasing!

two - Moroccanoil Treatment - I have since repurchased this as this is a product I never want to be with out. It does an amazing job at taming hair, smoothing it down and making it feel a lot more healthy. The smell is fabulous - I just love it. Whether you have straight or curly hair, this is just a wonder product - there's also a 'light' version for those with thinner hair.

three - Simple Kind to Eyes Eye Make-up Remover - I only bought this as a cheap stop-gap but I've already bought another, I was impressed. It's very gentle yet effective, even getting stubborn eye make up off. So cheap, so gentle - it doesn't irritate my eyes at all. Win!

four - Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation -Yes, this was also on my last 'empties' post that I did - well that's because I just keep rebuying and rebuying! Defintely the best foundation for my skin that I have found. It's still not 100% perfect, but it's my favourite for now.

five - Shiseido Sun Protection Compact Foundation - As a product, I adore this compact foundation. I use it as a blotting powder to get rid of any shine on a night out, but it also has some covering properties - some of my friends use this alone as a foundation. The only issue I have is that it smashes in my bag. I don't really know a way round it, seeing as I want to carry it around with me for those shiny moments?!

six - Laura Mercier Translucent Powder - A great powder which has no colour and doesn't look cakey when it's applied. Does a good job at setting foundation - I'd use it again but not in a hurry to go and rebuy it.

seven - MAC Stereo Rose MSF - This was sold as part of the 'In The Groove' collection and was limited edition. I was absolutely gutted as it's one of my favourite products EVER. Luckily someone on Twitter sold me theirs - thank you thank you thank you! It is the most gorgeous coral shade with a hint of frosty highlight on it - mmmm gorgeous!

eight - MAC All That Glitters eyeshadow - I love this pale gold shadow from MAC - it's frosty without the shimmer which I find hard to find in gold shadows. I tend to wear this most days as a base for my eyeshadow. I will definitely be repurchasing as soon as I can.

nine - MAC Sable eyeshadow - This is another of my favourite MAC shadows that I wear most days. This works really well as a colour to define your eyes - in the outer third (I love teaming this with All That Glitters, and then Mulch in the crease), but also works just as nicely over the whole lid. It's a velvet browny coppery colour. I rebought immediately. Can't do without it!

ten - Rimmel Flash Eyeliner - This is the first pen eyeliner I'd used and I loved it - it has a thin, pointed tip which makes getting to the inner corner of your eye easy, and wider for the wider part of your lid. It glides on without being 'wet' and doesn't drag your eye as you draw.

So there you have it - although I just realised I've missed one off! I think I'll have to start doing this monthly?!

I'd had a request to do more videos, so I've also done this as a video - if you'd like to watch, click below...




Hope you enjoyed! x

  1. cool! I actually have a blush powder for years, tho I wear it on and off, I never seem to hit pan =/ which is.. weird, cuz I've started to wear makeup regularly on a daily basis a few months ago, it should hit pan by now.

  7. Everyone is raving about the Morrocan Oil. One day I will jump in the bandwagon! It's weird how satisfying it is to have empties, isn't it?
