It’s finally time to talk about my empties! I’ve been doing empties posts on a bi-monthly basis because that’s usually how long it takes me to collect enough empty products to make a post. Unfortunately I didn’t have the time to get this photographed and written for the start of the month. These empties are all from August and September. My little box of empties is overflowing so I can’t wait to give you some mini reviews!

Full Review Here. I liked this foundation the more that I used it. I wasn’t initially wowed by it but as time went on I grew to like it more. My face looks so naturally radiant when I wear this foundation, and it’s only around $10 at the drugstore! I will absolutely be repurchasing once I whittle down my foundation stash.
I finally finished this travel size of the UD primer potion a year and a half after purchasing it. These primers last a long time. They also make my eyeshadow last a long time which is why I will be repurchasing.
My review of this highlighter stick can be found here. It’s not a bad product but I prefer powder highlighters. It’s a great shade for pale skin though.
This lipgloss came in the 2017 January Ipsy Bag! Wow it took me a long time to finish this gloss. It wasn’t sticky at all and was very comfortable to wear but it had an awful chemical smell. This gloss does not warrant a repurchase from me.
This Fresh lip set came in the Fresh Sugar Lip Prep ‘N’ Paint Value Set. I really liked this lip treatment but it’s insanely expensive. The full size is over $30CAD so I won’t be repurchasing this lip treatment. I enjoyed getting it in the value set though!
I included this scrub in my Spring & Summer Favourites blog post. I love this scrub, it makes my shower (and my body) smell like delicious grapefruit! The formula isn’t anything terribly special but it works and smells great. That’s all I need.
This post was included in my last Disappointing Products post. It smells waaaay too overpowering. It’s not a bad scent but for me it’s just too much. I don’t need to smell like this body cream 12 hours after applying.
This size is very tiny, and I still haven’t completely made up my mind of it yet. I have two more minis like this so once I’ve gone through the next two I should have a good idea of how this product actually affected my skin. So far so good though, I’ve had less breakouts since using this toner. I will update you guys on my final thoughts once I’ve finished my minis.
I really liked this cleansing balm. It’s very gentle on the skin and it did a great job of removing tough liquid lipsticks. It didn’t do so well at removing waterproof mascara but that’s where my next empty comes in…
This Makeup Remover is my HG. It’s so good for when I film swatch videos )like my recent Emily Edit The Wants Palette Eye Swatch Video) because it’s so gentle on the skin and does an amazing job of removing my makeup. My only issue is that Bi-Facil is very expensive, this bottle was around $40CAD and that’s too much for me to spend on a regular basis.
I didn’t like this moisturizer for reasons that I outlined in my Olay Total Effects Whip Review. My dry skin needs more hydration!
This is one of the oldest skincare reviews on my blog that still gets views today. As I said in that original review this moisturizer is nice for summer/warmer times of the year but not hydrating enough for me during the cooler months.
I loved this facial mist when I first bought it. I even featured it in last winter’s Top 10 Winter Skin Savers post, but as time went on I realized that I actually didn’t like this as much as I thought it did. Sure it’s hydrating, but the rose smell started to drive me crazy! I think if I were to repurchase I would pick up the cucumber scent.
I have already repurchased this product. This was also one of my Spring/Summer favourites for this year, the mist is hydrating and refreshing. It’s also only a few dollars more than the Mario Mist.
This mini didn’t do much for my skin. It’s supposed to have amazing anti-aging ingredients but I only found that it smelled unpleasant. I much prefer Josie Maran Argan Oil.
I’ve heard amazing things about this serum but this deluxe sample bottle I redeemed in my Sephora Appreciation Sale Haul was way too small to see a noticeable difference in my skin. The dropper didn’t pick up the product properly so I couldn’t get all of the serum out. I would love to try this again but the full size bottle is $115CAD so that won’t be happening anytime soon.
