EMPTIES! Products I've Used Up!

Lately I've been trying to cut down on the amount of makeup I buy as I find it just sits in my dresser unused. And hey we pay enough money for these products we may as well use them up. Here are some that I've been able to finish these past few months. I'll also let you know if I'd repurchase / have repurchased! :) 





Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes: Love these. They don't irritate my skin and get all the makeup off effectively. Would I repurchase? Yep, most likely. 

Garnier Pure Control Acne Cleansing Gel: LOVE this cleanser. I like to use this cleanser while I'm in the shower because it has a cooling effect which I find intensifies with all the steam in the shower. Great for waking you up in the morning. Would I repurchase? YES! Just trying to finish my current cleanser before I pick up another one :) 


Vichy Normaderm Toner: This product for me didn't do much for me. Didn't see any change to my skin. Plus this took foreverrrrrr to finish so it was REALLY nice finishing it. Would I repurchase? No. 

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray: One of my most recent posts is a review on this product. Overall, it's alright, didn't see much of a difference with how my makeup lasted when I used this. Would I repurchase? Probably not, but I'm interested to trying the other setting sprays.

Elizabeth Arden Perpetual Lotion: LOVE LOVE this moisturizer. My favourite moisturizer. It's light on the skin while making my skin feel moisturized and comfortable. Would I repurchase? YES! I've gone through many bottles of this moisturizer. 



NARS Eye Makeup Remover: I've picked these little guys at a previous Shiseido / Nars Warehouse Sale. It's an oil based makeup remover. Gets all your eye makeup off quickly but leaves a bit of a residue. Would I repurchase? Maybe, it's not the best makeup remover but it did get the job done nicely. 


Maybelline One by One Volum' Express Mascara: LOVE this mascara. Gives me great length and volume. Always get compliments on my lashes when I wear this mascara. Would I repurchase? YES! Already have backups of this ;)

Lancome Teint Idole Foundation: Really liked this foundation, medium coverage and blended easily. Unfortunately I cannot repurchase as it has been discontinued. 

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Base Perfection Makeup Foundation: This was a nice foundation. Medium coverage but didn't blend as easily. Found that it worked better with a sponge like a beauty blender. Would I repurchase? No, there are better foundations out there. 

MAC Select Cover Up Concealer: Really liked this concealer, it blended nicely in the under eye area and didn't crease too much when applied with a beauty blender. Would I repurchase? Yep.

Bare Essentials Well Rested Concealer: I used this more as a setting powder for my under eye area. This made my concealer stay put all day and provided me a lot of brightness on those days where I got little sleep. I would repurchase but I wasn't able to find this anymore on Sephora's website so I think they might have repackaged or reformulated the product :S 


Clinique Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Remover: This was a nice eye remover. Wasn't anything too spectacular but it did get the job done. Would I repurchase? Probably not, I've tried better makeup remover since then. 

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief: Love this moisturized. I've had it multiple times and would definitely repurchase it.

Clinique Clarifying Lotion: Probably my favourite toner I've tried yet. Gets everything off my face even after I've cleansed. Would I repurchase? YES! I bought a large bottle of this that I'm loving after I finished this sample.


That sums it all up! These are some of the products I've finished over the past few months!
