I think this video has officially been uploaded, but not made live, for an entire month! Mercy!
You forgive me, right? I hope so!
A few months ago I noticed a nice little pile of empties growing in my closet. The purger in me was dying to toss them, so it meant it was time to record an empties video.
After sorting through the pile, I realized there was a nice assortment of skincare, haircare and makeup. And a decent balance (for me, anyway!) of drugstore vs. higher end.
There were quite a few loves in this pile! I’ve definitely repurchased a few things here. One of my favs is the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water. I don’t know how it works so well, but it does! I’ve tried a few other brands in the past, but this one (particularly the waterproof version) gets the job done.
A few other makeup favorites include the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation and the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye. I think we may be in the double digits now for number of times mentioned in a blog post or video for these products. They are just THE BEST for me! The Neutrogena foundation is that right combination of glowing skin with great coverage, but natural enough for every day. And the IT Cosmetics concealer just does what it promises to do. No disappointments.
Speaking of disappointments, there was one HUGE bummer. I was excited to try the Milani Conceal + Perfect foundation.
I had a series of foundation purchases that were the wrong color, so I studied the Milani bottles to ensure I was buying the right shade. I even, just to be safe, chose the lightest color. But it was so yellow toned it just looked horrible! I have yelllow undertones in my skin, but not that much! Beware!
See what I mean??? It looked so strange! And when I slapped it on my face, the difference was even more apparent. What a disappointment.
So this round up of empties has quite the assortment of stuff. Any favorites that you see?
