I’ve always loved seeing Empties posts and videos, because I trust the opinions very much if they’ve used it enough for it to run out. I started saving my beauty empties, and although it’s not much, and most are deluxe samples, these are my empties from January and February.
Sephora Collection Outrageous Volume Mascara – I liked this mascara, but HATED the applicator. The wand doesn’t twist open, you just pull it straight out, and there’s nothing to stop the excess mascara from coming out. A lot of this got wasted.
Lancome Hypnose Drama Waterproof Mascara – LOVED this! It gave me a similar effect to Too Faced Better Than Sex, which is my all time favorite. If I didn’t have so many mascara samples to use up, this is something I would repurchase.
Becca Backlight Priming Filter – I really liked how illuminating this is, and it made my skin look nicer immediately. This is something I will consider purchasing in full size.
Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream – this became my all time favorite eye cream! It is super smooth, light weight, and moisturizing. It’s perfect for putting underneath makeup in the morning.
Batiste Dry Shampoo – I have to admit I probably got this more than a year ago and just now finished the bottle. I have dry hair, so it’s not often I need dry shampoo, but I would say this does the job pretty well. It is easy to distribute through my hair and easily soaks up the oil. I did repurchase this exact bottle in full size.
Bath and Body works Body Spray and Lotion
Kind of embarrassing to admit that I’ve had this body spray for so long, that I don’t think they’ve sold that type of bottle in years. I bought this sometime in high school, and literally wore it all through college. I neglected it for a while, and then made it my goal to finish it.
The lotion was a gift, and also something I was just trying to use up, and took me probably a year of using at least once per week. I don’t usually go for highly scented lotions, but this one smelled amazing.
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet – I used this on my face underneath my makeup, and it worked well because it is so lightweight and sinks into the skin easily. Probably will not repurchase, simply because of price.
Gold Bond Ultimate Healing – I used this on my body and it does moisturize well, but it is pretty thick and doesn’t rub in as easily as others.
Suave Smoothing With Cocoa Butter and Shea – I really liked this! I used it on both my hands and body and I liked how smooth and light it is. This would be my choice to repurchase if I run out of lotions.
Burt’s Bees Naturally Nourishing – This was just okay. The smell wasn’t my favorite, and the formula was too thick for my liking. I would use it if I had another sample, but would not repurchase.
