I am one of those girlies, that rarely has new empties to tell you all about. Even though I do collect them, I just never seem to get many, especially makeup.
I decided I wanted to post these, as I love reading empties, whether you have loads or very little. In my opinion, if they are empty, it’s usually for a good reason.
My holy grail foundation! I have spoken about it thousands of times on my site. I absolutely love it as it provides me with everything I need. It’s full coverage and the best colour match I have found. It’s one of those statement foundations that everyone has heard of and most people have tried. This makes my skin feel flawless, but it’s definitely a matte foundation. It offers a coverage to cover all kinds of sins, like my freckles.
It’s lovely satin-like consistency, great for a liquid foundation obviously. Quite a pricey foundation though, something that I have stopped using for everyday use. Which is why you’ll notice my next empty is another foundation.
Personally, I think it’s best applied with a sponge, but that is just my preference. A lot of people I know like using this foundation with a brush, as you get the best coverage. For me though, I actually get better coverage with my sponge.
It’s a foundation I will always go back to and one I would repurchase again and again. Oh yes…there’s a but coming. But I have got to the point where I want to try different foundations. We all know I love my full coverage, I am the queen when it comes to it. But I just find that as my skin get’s older and the condition keeps changing, I would like something that is less matte and something that isn’t so full coverage.
I am thinking about trying the nude version of double wear. If anyone does have any recommendations, comment below as I would love to know.
Revlon is a brand that I have been exploring into recently. This foundation was something I tried out in my foundation series.
This foundation appealed to me because it was known to be a dupe for my holy grail Estee Lauder DW. When I reviewed it the first time I saw some similarities but I wasn’t convinced it was a dupe. I am still not a 100% sure now. But when I finished doing the reviews, I remember saying that this was a foundation I wouldn’t repurchase. Well, how wrong was I? My opinion has changed on this foundation as I have now got my 2nd bottle and I use it every day for work.
I absolutely love the coverage of this foundation and the colour match, similar to the Double Wear. It does give me a flawless finish and with certain products it can last throughout the day, differing to my original review.
The more I used this foundation, the more I love it. For £12.99, I think this foundation will remain in my collection indefinitely. Again, this provides me with a matte finish, but sits beautifully on my face. It does end up sinking into my fine lines and can look quite drying around my nose, but a lot of foundations do that.
Yes…all my empties have been featured in my posts before, but for good reasons. This is my favourite eyebrow pencil, I haven’t found anything that gives me the precision this does. With its thin nib, I can create the most amazing natural brows, I just wish they were mine.
It is an expensive brow product, but in my opinion, it is completely worth it. Like I said, the nib is amazing, but the colour match is great. It’s so silky smooth to apply, creating fine lifelike hairs. Making my brows look fuller and creating a defined shape.
I would prefer a cheaper alternative, I’ll be completely honest. As £20 is a lot when I repurchase it quite frequently now. At the beginning, I would say this product lasted me a long time, but now I seem to be getting through them much more quickly.
Wasn’t long ago where I talked about this product, but I am falling even more in love with it. In the past couple of months, I have gone through 2 bottles of it.
I use it every single night, without fail, before I go to bed. I actually don’t think I could sleep without it now.
There’s something about the smell that I absolutely love. It doesn’t just smell like lavender, which for me is a huge plus. But it has this clean aroma to it, which reminds me of clean sheets.
If I start to feel like I am starting to go to sleep, I have to sit up to spray this on my pillow. It completely relaxes me and without it, I think I would suffer even more with my sleep.
I do still have sleeping problems, but I do think it would be worse if I didn’t have this soaking into my pillow.
That’s it, all my empties. I will try and keep some aside, preferably different ones.
What have you guys been using a lot of?
