Product Empties!

I love product empties posts!  I think it is a great way to see what items people actually love, finish, and would repurchase.  I don’t know why I never thought to do one before… I am now kicking myself for throwing away all those empty packages!

Anyway, I still have few empties floating around, and I am here to share what I thought of them and if I would buy them again.

BENEFIT’S HOOLA BRONZER

This is at least the fourth one of these I have purchased.  I just find it to be the perfect color for my fair skin… not to dark and not to orange.  I feel a little ripped off every time I buy it because you get such a small amount for the price, but it remains a favorite.

Would I repurchase?  Yes, but I would love to find a less expensive dupe.  Any suggestions?

HOURGLASS AMBIENT LIGHTING BLUSH

I bought this blush for my wedding and loved it.  It gives a lovely glow to the skin without ever registering as shimmery.  This is a very light shade, so you have to build it up quite a bit to get a good payoff.  It would only be suitable for the fairest of skintones.

Would I repurchase?  Yes, but in a darker shade.

AUSSIE THREE MINUTE MIRACLE

I use this daily.  It is an awesome daily conditioner for coarse or damaged hair.  You can’t beat a $3.00 conditioner that works!

Would I repurchase?  Obviously, yes! 🙂

OLE HENRIKSEN TRUTH SERUM VITAMIN C COLLAGEN BOOSTER

This is by far my favorite serum I have ever tried!  I love the smell… not only does it have and amazing citrus scent, but I does not have the strange odor that many Vitamin C products can have.  It packs a hefty punch of Vitamin C, and absorbs perfectly into the skin.

Would I repurchase?  Yes

MAC LIPSTICK IN SYRUP

This was the lipstick I wore on my wedding day.  It is a perfect “your lips but better” shade.  I prefer it best in the winter, but I think I can be worn all year long.

Would I repurchase?  Yes

MAKEUP FOREVER ULTRA HD INVISIBLE COVER FOUNDATION

This was a recent discovery, and one that I was surprised that I liked.  I am typically not a fan of full cover foundations, but this one was surprisingly weightless.  Great for long days or big events!

Would I repurchase?  Possibly… still not my first choice for daily use, but great to have on hand if you love a full coverage base.

AMIKA UN.DONE TEXTURE SPRAY

This is a great texture spray for beginners.  It has a very light finish and is really tough to overuse.  It has a pleasant smell, and a cool funky design.

Would I repurchase?  Possibly… I liked this, but am interested in trying some sprays with a bit more texture.

AQUAGE BEYOND SHINE

This has been a favorite for many years.  It gives a noticeable shine to the hair without leaving a residue or weighing it down.  It is great to spray on your finished style, or can be applied to dry hair before styling and your hot tools will glide through like a dream!

Would I repurchase?  Yes, I have been through many bottles of this!

LIVING PROOF NIGHT CAP

This is a hair mask that you wear overnight, and while I liked that it left no residue on my pillow, I wasn’t overwhelmed by the results.  I did notice a difference, but nothing that blew me away for the price.  For my hair, I get better results with an in-shower deep conditioner.

Would I repurchase?  No

ESTEE LAUDER ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR EYE CREAM

I received this generous sample and was excited to try it as I had heard such great things about the Advanced Night Repair oil.  This was a lovely cream with a beautiful, light consistency… I loved how smoothly I glided under they eyes without tugging.  However, I’m not sure how much hydration it actually brought to the party.  I think this would be perfect for younger eyes, or those with few hydration issues.

Would I repurchase?  No, this was a lovely cream, but I would choose something with a little richer texture.

I hope you enjoyed exploring this roundup of my trash, and possibly got some ideas of new things to try.  Now I can actually throw these things away!  What are some of your most used beauty items?
