Beauty Empties (Pic Heavy)

Hello Everyone! Today I wanted to share with you my current beauty empties collection!

What are beauty empties?

Beauty empties are empty beauty products that a person has kept aside to share with others.  One of the benefits of the viewing or reading a beauty empty review is that the person completely finished the product before voicing their thoughts therefore creating honest review.  This trend is currently popular in the blogger youtuber world.

  • L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara in Black
I did not like this mascara.  I did not even bother writing a separate review on it.  The brush was too big for my eyes and there was too much collagen in the formula it clump my lashes.  I will not repurchase.
  • Revlon Photoready Volume Mascara
I wrote a full review [here].  It did lengthen my lashes however it didn't add volume.  Overall this mascara was okay.  I will not repurchase.
  • Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner
This liquid eyeliner was very black, however it was too liquidly for me.  I have no patience to wait for it to dry.  It also dries very glossy.  I will not repurchase.
  • Beauty Addicts Show Off Mascara
I got this in one of my glossybox's.  Getting a full size mascara is cool, however I did not like this mascara at all.  The packaing is terrible, there are clumps of product that comes out on the brush and it does the same thing on the lashes.  I will not purchase.
  • Benefit Cosmetics The Porefessional
I love this product.  It helps masks my large pores, does not break me out, and creates a smooth canvas for makeup.  It has a silicon feel to it.  I will repurchase.
  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
This was one of those phase products that everyone went crazy over.  Honestly it was okay.  It stained my lips beautifully but the balm on the end I didn't care about.  I might repurchase it.

  
  



  • Maybelline New York Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm, Cherry Me
I love love love this product!  I'm currently on my 4th Cherry Me baby lips.  It smells yummy, moisturizes well, and has a slight natural tint to it.  I would definitely repurchase.
  • Revlon Lip Butter Pink Truffle
Also one of my favorites, reminds me of a glossy lipstick.  Very light on the lips and very moisturizing. I also love this color because it's the closest to my natural lip color.  It gives out a "my lips but better" effect.  I will repurchase.  Also pink truffle does not have shimmer like some of the others.
  • Laura Mercier Eye Basics Wheat
Glides very smoothly on the eye and holds eyeshadow well while it enhances and brightens the color.  I like the lipgloss-like application brush and it's very easy to use.  A bit on the pricy side but I will repurchase or find an alternative dupe.
  • Laura Mercier Eye Basics Eyebright
I did not like this one merely for the color.  It was too light and bright for my skin.  This works best with light skin tones or if you are doing bold eye look that needs a very light base, I would recommend this for you.  This is not for me and I will not repurchase. 
  • Chapstick Moisturizer Blue
No one could go wrong with chap-stick.  It's a staple for everyone. I usually put this under lip products that are not as hydrating as it should be.  I will repurchase.
  • FRESH Sugar Lip Treatment
I got this as a gift from Sephora for my birthday.  It's alright, just a typical lip balm with a mint feel to it, nothing special.  I will not repurchase.

  
    



  
   

TRESemme Anti-Breakage Conditioner/TRESemme Healthy Volume Conditioner
Makes my hair soft and manageable but theres nothing too special about both conditioners, may repurchse.


Pantene Anti-Breakage Conditioner
Enjoyable conditional, smells great, but theres nothing special about it.  May repurchase.

TRESemme Tres Two Spray
Enjoyable hairspray, did the job, great hold.  I may repurchase but I'm also looking forward to trying different hair sprays.

L'Oreal Ever Strong Sulfate Free Fortify System Hydrate Shampoo
I'm glad I got this as a sample because I did not like this shampoo.  It did nothing for my hair, made it dry, and I will definitely not repurchase.


Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum
I like putting this to the ends of my damp hair.  It decreases the frizz and when my hair drys it's very shiny.  A little goes a long way, and will repurchase this product or a similar product.  It works best with my naturally big curly hair.



Dove Go Fresh Cucumber & Green Tea Scent Cool Moisture Body Wash
I love this body wash.  It has a light scent great for male and females.  Very soft to the skin, does not irritate the skin, and its cheap.  I've already repurchased this product.

Body & Earth Elements Sweet Pomegranate Bubble Bath
This was gifted to me.  I finished it, but it was okay.  I will not repurchase.


Pantene Prov-V Anti Breakage Silicone Free Shampoo
Has an enjoyable scent but it acts like any other regular shampoo, nothing too special about it.  I may repurchase.

Naturale Essential Soap Alkaline and Mineral Soap
This was gifted to me, nice soap, cleans and moisturizes, the scent is light but there is nothing too special about it.  I will not repurchase nor look where to purchase it.

  • Swan Nail Polish Remover Regular
Nothing to special about this nail polish remover, does it's job.  May or may not repurchase.
  • CVS Pharmacy Nourishing Polish Remover
I did not like this nail polish remover, it makes my fingers sting after use.  I will not repurchase.

  • Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash
I love this deep cleansing wash.  I usually keep this in my shower and I can also use this for my body.  Does not irritate skin, and will repurchase.
  • Proactiv Renewing Cleanser
Not a fan of the scent, I prefer using Proactiv Deep Cleansing wash.  Does not break me out but I don't care to much for this product.  I will not repurchase.
  • Proactiv Repairing Treatment
Never really like how this felt on my skin.  Somewhat has a burning sensation to it, and it smells so medicated.  I will not repurchase.

PINK Fresh & Clean Body Mist/PINK Pretty & Pure Body Mist
Enjoyable scents, will repurchase if it's on sale.


     
Urban Decay All Nighter XL Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
I love this setting spray!!! It works so well, spray lightly on the face and the makeup will not budge.  I will repurchase this!

Bath and Body Works Paris in Bloom Body Lotion
Enjoyable body lotion, smells good.  Will repurchase if it's on sale.

Loreal Eye Makeup Remover
I did not like this eye makeup remover.  It didn't remove any eye makeup and it spread it all over my eye.  I will not repurchase.

Japanese Cherry Blossom Anti-Bacterial Gentle Foaming Hand Soap
Enjoyable hand soap smells good. Will repurchase if it's on sale.

Olay Complete all day UV Moisturizer SPF 15
I've been using this moisturizer for years.  Light scent, doesn't break me out, and also has SPF 15.  I like to use this under my makeup and it's oil free so there is no extra build up.  I have repurchased this product multiple times.

Simple Sensitive Skin Experts Cleansing Facial Wipes
I enjoyed these facial wipes, very soft to the skin, no annoying scent.  Does the job. I usually use this on my face before and after I go to the gym.  To first remove any makeup to unblock my pores, then to remove any sweat after the gym.  I already repurchased this product.

Whew and we are done!

I just realized how much products I've recently used.  I hope you found these mini reviews helpful, and I will definitely do some more beauty empty reviews and the near time future!  Less products next time though, I think this post was overwhelming for both you and me.

Hope you have a great day! xoxoxo -Vanessa Jhoy
