|June & July 2017 empties|
ELF Clear Brow & Lash Mascara - I have gone through a couple of these over the years. At first I used the clear mascara as a primer but now I use it on my brows after I use up the brow side. I will continue to purchase.
Wet n Wild Come Correct Concealer- I'm going to start off by saying I hope this concealer isn't being discontinued. Last year my local Dollar Tree had these and I stocked up. It is my all time favorite drugstore concealer. The coverage is unreal and lasts all day.
NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brown Pomade (shade espresso)- I loved this pomade because it was pigmented and very easy to work with. However, it quickly dried out. I revived it many many times for about a year and I'm done with it. I'm currently trying ELF's brow pomade now.
Laura Geller The Real Deal Concealer (shade light)- My holy grail concealer. You only need a tiny amount so this product will last a long time. For me a tube lasts a little over a year with daily use. I have bought several of these and will continue to purchase.
ELF Eye Refresh - I have had this product for a long time and actually forgot about it. It does feel cool (temperature wise) to apply under eyes but I'm not sure if it really does alleviate under eye puffiness and dark circles.
Sephora Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick (shade 01 Always Red) - I have yet to find another liquid lipstick that is as comfortable as this one. I love red lips and I have bought another one. I might check out more colors in the future.
Benefit They're Real Tinted Lash Primer- This lash primer is very overpriced. Since it is tinted this basically acts like a low quality mascara.
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara- I had been wanting to try this mascara for a while and I finally received a sample of it. I LOVED it but it is very similar to the Jordana Best Lash Extreme Mascara, so I will continue to buy the Jordana for $4 instead of Perversion for $23 (full size)
Jordana Best Lash Extreme Mascara- My holy grail mascara that I will continue to repurchase forever because it is only $4. Perfect amount of length and volume for my lashes.
Jordana Best Volume Extreme Mascara- Not the biggest fan of this particular Jordana mascara. For some reason it smelled like bad chemicals when I first opened it so I didn't use it for very long. The brush was massive size too.
Jordana FabuLiner Bold Eyeliner- I love this eyeliner and it is super easy to do a cateye wing. I will repurchase along with the normal size (non bold).
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - I have talked a lot about these in previous posts. They work great for traveling.
Almay Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover Pads- Another product I have talked a lot about in previous posts. These work great and I've been using them for many years and will continue to do so.
Belief The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb- I love this moisturizer because really feels like it works even though it is heavy. This was my second sample. I would like to buy a full size but $38 is quite expensive for a moisturizer.
L'oreal Detox & Brighten Clay Mask- I am definitely going to buy a full size when I go through and use up more of my mask collection. This is the first mask that I actually can see results after using. My acne is more calmed down and my face clears up. Great product!
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Day Cream- I enjoyed the light rose scent. This is a nice product but I don't think I'll repurchase mainly because of the price but I do recommend.
Mario Badescu A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap- I actually liked the smell of this body soap. It came in a set with the foaming cleanser and two other products. I might purchase a full size.
Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser- I liked this cleanser and feel it did help my acne. I might purchase a full size in the future.
Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser- I honestly don't feel like this cleanser did anything to improve my acne. I doubt I repurchase.
Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture- This foil packet sample is way to small to see if I actually like this product but it was moisturizing.
Lulu hair color remover wipe- I bought several of these on clearance at Ulta. They are basically a wet wipe with some kind of liquid....maybe acetone? It works okay but a lot of scrubbing is needed
TRESemme Tres Two Extra Firm Control Hairspray - My go-to hairspray when traveling because it comes in this convenient size and works well for my hair
TRESemme Beauty Full Volume Pre Wash Conditioner - I was not a fan of this backwards conditioner before shampoo system. I feel like it made my hair feel dirty faster and it actually made my hair shed more.
TRESemme Beauty Full Volume Shampoo - see above
