Empties Pt II: Bath & Body

Hi darlings, as promised here is my bath & body empties! I'm sure there were way more than this I just probably forgot and ended up throwing them out. 
Pictured above: 3 different scents of Bath & Body Works shower gels, 2 Soap & Glory Righteous Body Butter, 2 scents of LaVanila deodorant, Tree Hut Sugar Scrub, and Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer
Bath & Body Works shower gels: These are my favorite shower gels cause they smell so good and they usually have awesome sales that I typically stock up on. For those of you that have followed me for awhile know my signature scent is Sweet Pea. I absolutely loveeee that scent but I do also enjoy trying new ones too. I really like the Endless Summer scent, especially for vacations! I am in the market to try a different brand of shower gel though so let me know if you have a favorite that you'd always repurchase!
Soap & Glory Righteous Body Butter: I tried this on a whim because I've seen really good reviews on this and I picked it up before going on vacation and let me just say this was a God send! I got really bad sunburn while on vaca and this was the only thing that helped it and actually moisturized my skin. I went through this travel size in like 4 days so I picked up a second one. I haven't picked up a full size yet but would I? Yes!
LaVanila Deodorant: This is a healthy version of deodorant that you can get from Sephora.com. Basically this deodorant doesn't contain any harsh chemicals, like aluminum. I personally love this brand. I did notice it doesn't last as long as I'd like it to but I keep a travel size in my purse for that reason. But I like knowing it's better for me than the other deodorants on the market so I prefer this brand. 
Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub: This specific scent smells like a vacation, literally. Like you smell it and it instantly takes you to an island. I already repurchased one of these but this time I got the one in a mango scent. It exfoliates and makes my skin feeling so smooth and it's inexpensive. Win, win and win! 
Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer: I've probably gone through like 4 of these since I started collecting my empties. I always have one of these hanging off of my purse. I'll always repurchase these cause I love the Bath & Body Works scents.


Stay tuned, next up is my skin care empties! :)

Empties: Makeup Edition

I've been hoarding empty products for quite some time now between makeup, hair care, skin care and bath & body. Sometimes I threw empty products away without thinking so trust me this isn't all of
it lol. But for those of you that don't know what an "empties" post is, basically it's a post about all the products you've used up completely that are well, empty, and if you'd repurchase them. So I'm going to talk to you about these makeup products below in depth and give mini reviews and let you know if I would repurchase them! Stay tuned because I have 3 more empties posts coming your way in the other categories ! 
Pictured above: Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, Too Faced Born This Way Foundation, Makeup Forever HD Foundation, Stila One Step Correct Primer, 2 Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencils, Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer, Urban Decay Primer Potion Eye Primer, and 3 L'Oreal Lumi Cushion Foundations
Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer: I've gone through like 6 bottles of these already. This is my holy grail primer. I have yet to find a primer to live up to this one. It just smooths out my skin and makes it feel like silk and makes my foundation just glide on. Another thing this primer is good for is making your makeup last long. I will forever repurchase this product. 
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation: I really loved the fact this foundation is full coverage and it has a beautiful satin/dewy finish. The only downfall is they have very yellow undertoned shades. I haven't tried the 2 lightest shades that came out after they launched the foundation but after seeing swatches they, too, look to be very yellow based unfortunately. I think I'll give the lighter shades a go again in the near future because I really loved this formula. 
Makeup Forever HD Foundation: I tried this foundation after MUFE reformulated it and everyone used to rave about the old formula but they weren't entirely impressed with this one and I don't blame them. It was light-medium coverage and I'm a full coverage kind of gal so I'll have to pass on repurchasin this. The only thing I absolutely loved about this foundation is the shade. It's literally my perfect shade. If I could get this shade in every brand's formula I would in a heartbeat!
Stila One Step Correct Primer: I really liked this primer as you can tell there's not even a drop left! I just felt like it evened my skin tone and corrected the slight redness I have. I didn't really notice it making a difference in the longevity of my makeup but I used this in conjunction with my hourglass primer and it made a difference. 
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz: Another one of my holy grail products. I will forever and a day repurchase this. Forever and ever amen! I've tried other brow pencils similar to this but the formulas just don't compare. This is the OG, numero uno. 
Hard Candy Glamoflauge: If you're looking for a heavy duty concealer, this is for you. I used this to cover up redness and you only need the smallest amount because it's so full coverage so this lasted me quite awhile. I would repurchase this. 
Urban Decay Primer Potion Eye Primer: Honestly I've had this for so long I think it's in my empties because it's just old and was time to toss it. I've only used it a few times and wasn't super impressed by it so I'll pass on repurchasing. It didn't really make a significant different in my eyeshadow application or the longevity. 
L'Oreal Lumi Cushion Foundation: Can you tell whether I'd repurchase this or not? Lol. This is my favorite drugstore foundation thus far. The finish is dewy but not that greasy dewy, it's medium to buildable coverage


I'll be posting my bath & body empties next so stay tuned ;)

Empties!












I've been hoarding these empties for like 2-3 months now and I am finally sharing them with you! For those of you that don't understand what this post is about and are thinking, "Why would she post pictures of her empty products?" Basically it's just to let you all know what products I've used up and whether or not I would re-purchase them! But just to give you a heads up, these are pretty much all products I would repurchase because I don't usually tend to use things up I don't like. So let's diiiiiveeee in (Trey Songz voice lol). 


Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer
This is something I have already re-purchased right before I ran out because I love it so much. It is the most full coverage concealer EVER! If you're looking for a concealer to cover up tattoos, this is it. This covera my blemishes SO well and it's only like $6 at Walmart!

Bath and Body Works Endless Weekend Body Wash 
I love this scent. I took this travel size with me on a trip and loved it. I actually got it for free and if it's free, it's for me! But it's only $5 for this travel size and lasts a decent amount of time. If you take it on vacation with you, this 3 oz bottle should last you about 2 weeks. I would definitely re-purchase. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown
This is a staple, a holy grail in my makeup routine. I had to pick up a back up before this even ran out. Now that I'm blonde I really need to pick up a lighter shade but regardless this product is BOMB. 

Shea Moisture African Black Soap
This is great for acne prone skin, although it can dry your skin out pretty quickly if you're not careful. But this is pretty much the only thing that I've found that helps with healing my skin. I'm already on my second bar of this. This line had a ton of products for problematic skin that I still want to test out. 


Mositure Weightless Moisture
This was actually sent to me for PR and I legit went through this SO quickly. It came in handy for me because after I dyed my hair blonde, it's been really hard to comb out when I get out of the shower so this made it so much easier and made my hair softer. This will be a definite re-purchase for me. 


Freeman Beauty Charcoal and Black Sugar Mask
Sorry for the crazy looking packaging haha but I love Freeman Beauty products. They're inexpensive and effective. I believe this was $3 for this big tube! I used this as an exfoliant before using my cleanser. If I would recommend anything from Freeman it would be this. But for people who have sensitive skin, you may not like this because it is a little rough but it really gets deep into the pores. 

Boscia Makeup Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil
Sooo don't judge me, but I lost the cap to this lol. But this was another product that was sent to me for PR but lordddddd do I love Boscia for sending this. If they hadn't I don't know if I ever would have tried it and I would've been missing out big time! This works wonders taking your makeup off. It's gentle, doesn't tug or pull at your skin, didn't break me out, removes eye makeup easily. I haven't had a chance to pick this baby up again but I absolutely need to! 

Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer
Probably one of the most raved about primers on the market which is why I picked it up in the first place. I picked up the travel size one first to make sure I liked it and I actually ended up falling in love. It lasted me pretty long for the $18 price tag. But for the $56 or $72 price tag, I honestly wouldn't mind spending that because this product is worth it. It made my makeup stay in place and it smoothed my skin out. 

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil
I purchased the Bronzer Wardrobe that TF had out for the holidays last year and this was one of the mini bronzers that was included. This one suits my fair skin tone best and it has just enough of a grey undertone. As you can tell from the picture, I used the heck out of this! I already purchased the full size because I cannot live without this bronzer! I would suggest this for all my fair skin girls out there. 

Boscia Luminizing Black Mask
This is a travel size that I got in a set called the Little Black Book. I'm so glad this was included because I've been dying to try this and I love it! You do have to be careful though because it legit like suctions onto your skin so when you go to peel it off, it can potentially hurt or make your skin red. It almost feels like you're ripping a layer of skin off lol. But if you put a thick layer of it, it doesn't hurt as bad. But I will say it definitely rips the blackheads and whiteheads out. 

Macadamia Deep Repair Masque
They recently changed the name and packaging of this product but I dont remember the name :( I'm sorry! But this is great for getting lucious, smooth hair. It brings moisture back into your hair. It's a little more on the pricey side, I believe $26-$32, but it's worth it. This was my second jar that I've gone through and I need to restock ASAP! 

LOreal Damage Erasing Balm
For those of you that don't like the hefty price tag of the Macadamia hair mask above, this is a GREAT alternative. It's only $5 at Walmart and works WONDERS. This really does work and it doesn't have any sulfates in it. After I ran out of this, I actually ended up picking up the blue one (I think it's called LOreal Moisture Lock or Moisture Repair) just to see if it was as good as this one so I'm testing that out now. 

What are products you need to restock on ?!
