Beauty Empties Review #2

Hey babes! This has been a long time coming!! I meant to get another empties post up in July but time got away from me. Lol. These are some of my favorite posts to read so I could’t let another month go by without getting this up! Check out my first empties post if you love reading these!

Makeup Empties

Beauty Empties Review #2 Makeup

61. Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer ($15-32, Sephora) I love this primer but I don’t think it’s necessary since I use a moisturizer anyways.

Repurchase? No.

62. Benefit Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara ($12-24, Sephora) I’ve tried this before and really liked it but this tube was dried out when I opened it.

Repurchase? Maybe.

63. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($12-23, Sephora) This tube was dried out too. I didn’t like it the last time I tried it though.

Repurchase? Probably not.

64. Elf Lip Exfoliator ($3, Ulta) I love this!! It a must especially when I wear liquid lipsticks!

Repurchase? Yes!

65. Milani Lip Oil- Healing Lemon Honey ($8, Milani) I really liked this too! It felt similar to a lipgloss but super moisturizing!

Repurchase? Yes.

66. Jersey Shore Cosmetics Peppermint Moisture Rich Hydrating Balm ($10) I did NOT like this!! I tried it again when I was taking these pictures and I still hate it. It made my lips burn! Nope!

Repurchase? No!

67. Covergirl Intensify Me Liner ($8.99, Ulta)

I really like the ability to make a thin or thick line. It does have a learning curve but it didn’t take me long to master it. I have another one in a pretty green!

Repurchase? Yes.

68. Dollup Beauty Doll Eyes Liquid Eye Pen ($19, Dollup Beauty) I love this liquid eyeliner! It was super black and an easy to use felt tip!

Repurchase? Possibly.

Nail Polish Empties

Beauty Empties Review #2 Nails

69. Jamberry TruShine Gel Enamel Base Coat ($25, Jamberry) I didn’t like this and don’t think it’s worth the price! My nails chipped within a few days. I don’t have that problem with RCM.

Repurchase? No.

70. Red Carpet Manicure Structure Base Coat Nail Gel ($9.99, Ulta) I really like this and it lasted me over 6 months using it on my sister, my mom, & myself. It started getting thicker and goopy at the end.

Repurchase? Possibly.

71. Red Carpet Manicure Brilliance Seal & Shine Top Coat Nail Gel ($9.99, Ulta) I felt the same way about this one! I’m currently using Madam Glam but if I was in a pinch I would repurchase this! MG is just a better deal when it’s on sale.

Repurchase? Possibly.

72. Red Carpet Manicure LED Nail Gel Polish in Black Stretch Limo ($9.99, Ulta) I had this one 6 months, maybe. It got thick, goopy, & unsuable. I really liked this shade of black but I think a gel polish should last longer.

Repurchase? Probably not.

Skincare Empties

Beauty Empties Review #2 Skincare

73 & 74. Almay Makeup Eraser Sticks ($4.99, Target) I love these!! They are perfect for fixing messed up eyeshadow or eyeliner. They even work for removing liquid lipstick!

Repurchase? Of course!! I’ll repurchase these as long as they make them! Lol.

75. MAC Demi Wipes ($12, MAC) These were okay but I didn’t think they were very wet. I prefer my Burt’s Bees wipes!

Repurchase? No.

76. Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate ($85 for full size, Sephora) This was a pretty decent eye cream but I don’t really notice a difference between eye creams and a moisturizer. Lol.

Repurchase? No.

77. Olay Regenerist Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswhirl ($24.99, Bed, Bath, & Beyond) This one was decent too! I kind of wonder if they are getting rid of it though since it’s on clearance. Do you have an eye cream that you love??

Repurchase? No.

78. Sunday Riley Good Genes ($105 for full size, Sephora) I used this off and on. I thought I liked it at first but I think it started irritating my skin.

Repurchase? I’m not sure I would repurchase the full size but I’d try another sample.

79. First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser ($24 for full size, Sephora) This was a decent cleanser. I haven’t found one that I absolutely love yet though.

Repurchase? Probably not.

80. Purlisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer ($55, Dermstore) This was really nice but I like the Essential Daily Moisturizer with spf better!

Repurchase? Probably not.

81. ROC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream ($19.99, Target) I didn’t use this enough to really notice a difference. I got it in a Target beauty box and decided to try it but I probably should have gave it to my mom before it expired. Lol.

Repurchase? Probably not.

82. Peter Thomas Roth Firm X Peeling Gel ($48, Sephora) I really liked this! It made my skin feel smoother and didn’t irritate it!

Repurchase? Maybe.

83. Bioderma Sensibio H2O ($6.90, Beautylish) This is one of my favorite eye makeup removers!!

Repurchase? Yes!

84. Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads ($5.99 for 80 ct, Ulta) I had to use way too many to remove my eye makeup. Not worth it!

Repurchase? No.

85. Lancome Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum ($78-175 for full size, Sephora) I didn’t really notice anything amazing for the price. Lol.

Repurchase? No.

86. Nooni Root Energy Cleansing Water ($?) This was nice but I prefer Bioderma!

Repurchase? No.

87. Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil ($4.99-15.99, Target) I didn’t like this! It burned my eyes and I didn’t even get it that close!

Repurchase? No.

88. Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Night ($110 for the full size, Sephora) This was a really nice night cream!! The price is a bit much for me though.

Repurchase? Maybe someday. Lol.

89. Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch ($4.84, Amazon) These are so amazing!!

Repurchase? I have a few backups. Lol.

90. Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Moisturizer ($58 for full size, Sephora) This was really nice underneath makeup! It made my skin feel really moisturized!

Repurchase? I would definitely pick it up during a sale!

91. Hanaka Black Rose Acne Fighting Mask ($9.99 for 5, Amazon) I can’t remeber what website I bought this on but it was $1-2. I really like this on my nose and chin! It actually removed a bunch of crap but I didn’t like it on my cheeks!! It hurt coming off of there. Lol.

Repurchase? Yes!

92. Nugg Detoxifying Face Mask ($3.99-17.99, Nugg) This is a really nice charcoal mask!

Repurchase? I just repurchased it!

93. Nugg Deep Cleaning Face Mask ($3.99-17.99, Nugg) This was nice and felt refreshing!

Repurchase? Possibly in the future!

94. Mac Pro Eye Makeup Remover ($12 for sized to go, MAC) I didn’t care for this. It doesn’t burn my eyes but it didn’t do a great job removing mascara. I prefer their cleanse off oil or Bioderma!

Repurchase? No.

95. Sesderma Sensyses Cleanser Lightening ($21 for full size, Sesderma) This was nice but I think my Pixi Glow Tonic gives me a better glow and it’s cheaper and easier to get ahold of.

Repurchase? No.

96. Clean & Clear Deep Cleaning Toner ($4.29, Target) I don’t remember why I bought this but I don’t like it. Lol. It made my skin feel so dry!

Repurchase? No.

Haircare Empties

Beauty Empties Review #2 Haircare

97. Redken Beach Envy Volume Conditioner ($6.50-34, Ulta) I love this! It defnitely gives my hair some volume!

Repurchase? Yes!

98. Redken Extreme Shampoo ($6.50-34, Ulta) I really like this but if I use it too many days in a row it can make my hair look slightly greasy since I have fine hair.

Repurchase? Probably.

99. Redken All Soft Shampoo ($5.50-29, Ulta) This is my current favorite shampoo!! It makes my hair so soft!

Repurchase? I already have two big bottles! Lol.

100. Redken All Soft Heavy Cream ($18, Ulta) I’ve talked about this so much but this is my favorite conditioner!!

Repurchase? Of course! I think I’ve went through another one since I took these pictures. Lol.

101. Pantene Expert Intense Hydration Shampoo ($4.99 for full size, Target) This was a decent drugstore shampoo but I prefer my Redken.

Repurchase? No.

102. Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed Shampoo ($4-23, Ulta) This is okay but again, I prefer my Redken. Lol.

Repurchase? No.

103. Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed Conditioner ($4-23, Ulta) Same!

Repurchase? No.

104. It’s a 10 Miracle Leave in for Blondes ($19.55, Ulta) This is the best leave in conditioner I’ve found for my super blonde hair! It doesn’t leave me feeling crunchy, greasy, or weighed down like some do!

Repurchase? I have a backup. Lol.

105. Klorane Dry Shampoo ($10-20, Sephora) I think I linked to the right one. This was a nice dry shampoo! I’ve liked both I’ve tried from them! I’ll probably continue buying my Batiste though because it’s less than $10!

Repurchase? Probably not.

106. Sally Hershberger 24K Supreme Stylist Voluminous Dry Shampoo ($12-32, Sephora) I hated this!! It was way too wet for a dry shampoo!

Repurchase? NO!

107. Eva NYC Freshen Up Dry Shampoo ($11.99, Ulta) This didn’t really feel like it did much and didn’t soak up my oil.

Repurchase? No.

Bodycare Empties

Beauty Empties #2 Bodycare

108. Noxzema Super Smooth 5-Blade Disposable Shavers ($5.27, Walmart) I think I picked these up because I needed something quick for a trip but I really liked them! I liked the swivel head and they were a pretty good disposable razor. I still prefer my Gilette Mach 3! Mens razors are just so much better! Lol.

Repurchase? Probably not.

109. Bath & Body Works Paris Amour Fine Fragrance Mist ($6-14, Bath & Body Works) I love this scent but I’ve been prefering a Victoria’s Secret one I got for Christmas!

Repurchase? Maybe.

110. Eucerin Skin Calming Creme ($6.99, Target) I think I got this in the travel section so it was only a dollar or two. I needed a handcream at the time but this was a little too greasy for that.

Repurchase? Probably not.

111. Rituals Cosmetics T’ai Chi Shower Foam ($15, Rituals Cosmetics) It looks like they changed the name of this but I didn’t care for it. I couldn’t get past the smell. For some reason I didn’t like it. Lol.

Repurchase? No.

112. Dove Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash ($5.49, Target) This is my favorite body wash!! It makes my skin feel so soft and I can tell a difference when I use something else!

Repurchase? I just got it in a pump version. How did I never know they had that?! Lol.


What have you used up lately? Are any of these a favorite? I hope y’all have a great Labor Day Weekend!!

xoxo, Am ♥

    You have tried a lot of stuff!!! Seriously! I got the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara for my birthday, because everyone has been raving about it… and, am I the only one that isn’t sure what is so great about it? LOL! BTW, I am from STL, too! Always fun to see another blogger from my city!


    • September 3, 2017 / 10:56 pm

      I’m pretty sure it made my eyes itch the last time I tried it! I know a lot of people like it though! It is always cool seeing someone from the same area!!
