Fall Empties and Makeup Clean-Out

Leave a Comment
Hello all! I didn't intend to take a little break from blogging and my social media accounts, but sometimes life just gets in the way. The holiday season brings a lot of extra family and work responsibilities for me, so that's what I have been doing. I have missed all of you, and I promise to try to do better with staying in touch with all of you through social media and visiting all of your lovely blogs. I have really missed reading your blog posts, so expect visits from me soon!

I have used up quite a bit of products so far this fall, and I have cleaned out some of my makeup stash. Let's check out the empties first!

Skin, Hair, Body Care

ReVive Intensite Volumizing Eye Serum: I got this sample in my Bergdorf Goodman Glossybox, and I really enjoyed using it. It's so expensive for a full size that I won't purchase it.

True Blue Spa Raspberry Yogurt Shower Smoothie: I really liked this shower smoothie, but I think it's discontinued. I would get it again if I see it at a Bath & Body Works semi-annual sale. Loved the raspberry scent!

La Beaute Pure Vitamin C Serum*: This serum was wonderful during the warmer weather, and I loved it. (Full review here.) I will probably purchase this again during the summer months.

Hask Argan Oil Repairing Shampoo*: I really liked this shampoo. It foams up nicely to be sulfate-free. I have a full review here. Hask products are very affordable, so I would repurchase this.

Love + Toast Handcreme-Pomme Poivre: This is a nice, moisturizing hand cream. It's not that great if you want something for extremely dry hands, but it smells really nice. It has a spiced apple scent, as the name would suggest. I would repurchase this, and I am currently using this hand cream in a different scent.

Olay Complete Daily Defense All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF30: This is one of my favorite daytime moisturizers. I will definitely repurchase this!


Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes: This is one of my favorite mascaras! I have a review of this here. I will repurchase.

Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Mascara: This is another sample from the Bergdorf Goodman Glossybox. I was really impressed with this mascara, and I would purchase a full size.

Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara: This was a really nice everyday mascara. (review here) I think I would like to try one of the Hypnose mascaras from Lancome next.

Covergirl Bombshell Volume by Lashblast: I did not like this mascara at all. The double end wasn't good. Side 1 was fine, but Side 2 just turned my lashes into a clumpy mess. I used up Side 1, but I won't repurchase.

Back to MAC: All of the MAC counters and stores (in the USA, at least) have a recycling program where you can bring in 6 MAC containers and get a free lipstick or lipgloss. If you take your containers to a MAC store, then you can get a free lipstick, lipgloss, or eyeshadow. These are all products that I'm ready to let go. Most of these are almost used up. All of the lipglosses have a funny smell, so I'm sure they have gone bad. 

MAC Powder Blush-Well Dressed: This is a gorgeous blush for fair skin. I won't repurchase this for a while because I have some similar colors.

I probably won't repurchase any of the glosses because I have more glosses than I will use, but I'll list them for you. L-R
MAC Cremesheen Glass-Right Image (my favorite of this group); MAC Lipglass-Florabundance; MAC Dazzleglass-Like Venus; MAC Lipglass-Russian Red

I have some other products that I'm throwing away because of broken packaging. The lids keep coming off in my collection, and that just can't be sanitary.

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder-01: I might repurchase this eventually.

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Pressed Powder SPF30-Translucent: Most of my products from Physicians Formula have ending up with broken packaging, so I won't be buying any powders with this kind of packaging. It's a waste of money if it's just going to break.

Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss-Pink Lady: I really liked this gloss, but the smell has changed. I probably won't repurchase.

Maybelline Color Tattoo-Tough as Taupe: I like the color, but it dried out really quickly. I won't repurchase.

Maybelline Color Tattoo-Bad to the Bronze: This also dried out. I probably won't be buying any more of the Color Tattoos because many of them dry out really fast. I have more I probably need to remove from my collection, but these two are the only ones I'm willing to give up on right now.

That is everything! It feels great to be able to get rid of all this trash. Thank you so much for stopping by! What have you used up recently? I love your comments!
