Products I’ve used up pt.5 (I think) lol

Hello folks. I think this is like my 5th empties post but I love doing these because it takes going through a entire product to really know whether you like it or not and if it’s worth a repurchase. Plus it’s sometimes hard to get through an entire product when you’re a beauty junkie and have so many things to get through. Some of these are repurchases which shows how much I love them. So lets get to the trash so I can finally throw them away loll!!!

Skincare:


Pur Minerals Soak it up intense moisturizer (Kohls $34.00). I have purchased so many of these I can’t keep count. I love this moisturizer. It soaks into the skin quickly without leaving a film. Great for oily skin. I have purchased a different moisturizer to try out but this one will be back in rotation on a regular basis soon.


Formula 10.0.6 So totally clean deep pore cleanser with salicylic acid acne treatment toner (Ulta $5.99). This is one of my favorite toners. Definitely my favorite drug store one. This deep cleans my pores and balance the PH in my skin keeping breakouts to a minimum. Doesn’t burn just a light tingling feel to the skin.


Elf daily face cleanser is really great for a daytime cleanser (target $6.00). It’s very gentle on the skin. Thin consistency and a light foam so it won’t strip the skin. Great addition for all skin types.

Neutrogena ultra light cleansing oil (walgreens $10.49): I hate this product. The smell is too strong, it burned my eyes, left a film on my skin after rinsing it off, and it took too much work to remove my makeup. I love the original cleansing oil, but I can only find it occasionally at tj maxx. This is a absolute no for me. Yuck!!!


Aveeno clear complexion daily cleansing pads (you can get this at any drugstore but I normally get mine at ulta so that I can get points $7.99): I love these and I always have a jar of these on my bathroom sink. These are great for night time cleansing after removing your makeup aka the second cleanse. They have different types of these cleansing pads, but this one is my favorite because it has salicylic acid in them. These pads have a smooth side and a exfoliating side and is already wet and ready to go. Great for travel.

 

Foundation:


Estee Lauder double wear light in intensity 4.0 ($39.50): This is a great foundation for spring and summer. light weight version of the infamous double wear that everyone raves about. It has a little less coverage but the same matte finish.  Lasts all day through the toughest of days.

Revlon color stay is a cult favorite ($9.99). This is my moms holy grail foundation. It’s okay but nothing I reach for. I have the color 380 rich ginger which is a good match. I have other foundations that I like better. This foundation made me oily faster than others that I have. Won’t be repurchasing I love the Loreal true match way better.

Revlon nearly naked in 220 natural(discontinued). It laid on the skin beautifully, great finish, and lasted all day. I bought this on a whim and it was gone just as soon as I discovered it. No wonder it was on sale :/.

Lancôme Teint idole ultra 24hr foundation in 420 bisque($47). This is my favorite foundation for a flawless beat nighttime look. Full coverage, last all day, beautiful matte finish.

Brows:


Nyx mircobrow in ash brown ($9.99). Holy grail brow pencil. I always have at least two in my backup drawer. I can’t go without this product. I use it almost everyday. I sometimes switch up my products between pencil, powder, gel, or pomade but this must be on hand at all times.

Lancôme Le crayon poudre in sable ($26.50). I really like this pencil. It last forever!! It’s great for a full brow. The downside is that you have to sharpen it every time you use it to get that sharp tip. I love the skinnier retractable pencil that Lancome has but this is a good option.

Mascara:


Benefit roller lash (full size $24). I really enjoyed this mascara. The rubber bristles really gets into the lashes to separate and curl up. This mascara really does curl the lashes beautifully.

Loreal telescopic ($9.99). I love this mascara for  my bottom lashes and to really separate the top ones. The rubber bristle brush is tiny which is great for precision.

Jordana best last extreme (about $4 depending on store). This is the NYX microbrow of mascara  for me. Two always on backup and can’t live without. Normally I don’t care for bushy wands but this one gives amazing volume.

Estee lauder sumptuous extreme volume mascara in extreme brown ($27.50). This mascara is a absolute no for me. It was too wet, the brush was huge and got mascara all aver my face, color didn’t show up, when it dried it was too crunchy, and flaked all over my face. Horrible!!!!

Maybelline great lash in clear ($5.99). I use this mascara to set my brows. Its great and keep brows in place without added color. Also good to put on before brow powder to help the product stick.

Concealer:


Maybelline Instant age rewind in neutralizer ($8.99). This is a really good concealer to counteract darkness under the eyes, I have repurchased this a few times and really enjoy it. A little goes a really long way.

Nyx HD concealer in CW05 ($4.99). This concealer is really creamy and a dream for under the eye. Full coverage and very blendable. Love this concealer and I always have it in my face  drawer.

Elizabeth Arden flawless finish correcting and highlighting perfecter in #3 ($28). This is a gorgeous highlighting concealer. It is a light weight formula, which is great to use on top of another concealer to give that glow.

Eyeliner:


Rimmel scandeleyes pencil in nude ($3.99). This is a really creamy pencil which is very comfortable in the inner waterline. Doesn’t pull on the skin. Unfortunately the product fell out of the pencil before I had time to finish it. I haven’t repurchased it because I have really been loving the nude pencils from NYX and they have different nude shades which is nice.

Jordana fabuliner liquid eyeliner in brown ($2.99). I love this liner in the brown and the black. The brown is great for a softer eye look. The skinny felt tip is great for making a wing liner and for beginners. So easy to use and last all day on the eye without bleeding.

All righty folks those are all the products that I have used up. It’s always a lot because I try to make an effort to use up things I love mainly to not be wasteful or have too much going to waste and so I can have a reason to go out and buy new or repurchase products lol. oops!!

Current favorite new products

Hey folks, today I want to share some of my favorite products that I have not talked about before. Some are newly added to my life, and some I have had for a while and are just now getting around to using them and fell in love. You know the whole “where have you been all my life” when in reality it was in my not yet used drawer under my 4 tubes of back stock of the Jordana best lash extreme mascara (couldn’t find it for a while so when I did, I went a little fan girl) no judgment right, good. So these are items that I have been loving and have been in regular heavy rotation.

PRIMER


Clinique Pore refining solutions instant perfector. I use this primer on my cheeks and around my nose to fill in pores and fine lines without clogging. It is a flesh tone color but it doesn’t show up on the skin once it is blended in. A little goes a really long way. If you use too much, it will ball up on you so be careful. This is the same as the Benefit porefessional primer if you have used that one before and it’s a 2/3 of the cost. You can get this at Clinique counter and online Clinique.com $21.

CONCEALER


Essence say no to redness concealer (I purchased mine at Ulta for only $2.99)is a color correcting crayon. it is super creamy and melts right into the skin. Very blendable. I use it around and on the tip of my nose before I put on my foundation. The green color that I picked up, which they have other color correcting shades as well, helps counteract redness. I tend to get a little red around that area.

Elf HD lifting concealer in light. I love this little concealer and you can get it at target for $3.00. The shade is light but it’s not really light, it’s only a shade lighter than my skintone which makes it great for a everyday highlight under the eyes. Can’t beat that price and definitely worth the try. It is very blendable and so pretty under the eye. It’s not full coverage, but I love it to highlight under the eyes. Thinner that the NYX HD concealer, which I love as well.

FOUNDATION

Milani conceal and perfect foundation in 07 Sand (CVS $9.99). This foundation smells so good to me lol. It has a mousse consistence which is really good for people with larger pores. I do really have to set this makeup because the consistency can cause the foundation to move a little on the skin. gives the skin a nice healthy finish.

EX1 invisiwear foundation in F400 (lookfantastic.com $16.00). This is the perfect foundation for olive skin tone. It has a beautiful satin finish. It melts flawlessly into the skin. Once it is set with a powder, this foundation doesn’t budge. I wear this almost every time I wear makeup. I could use F300 but since I have the nyx mixer, I don’t have to purchase different shades.

NYX pro foundation mixer in white (9.99 at Ulta, I found mine at a beauty supply store that carry nyx, but you can also fins it at ulta and target) I love to this to mix with my foundations that are currently too dark. This product doesn’t change the texture or finish of you foundation. You can mix it with any cream or liquid product to lighten the shade. This is great because liquid and cream products have a short shelf life, so I like to use them all year long so none goes to waste, and this product allows that. I just mix it on a stainless steel mixing palette and its good to go.

BROWS


Essence make me brow eyebrow mascara in the color browny brows (Ulta $2.99). Although essence is a very inexpensive brand, the products I have tried from them are really good. I mean what are you losing when you try these products at such a great price. If you don’t like it, give it to a friend. This brow mascara has a tiny wand that really gets into the brows. Also has fibers that helps the brow look fuller without having to over draw them in. I use this to set my brows and also I use it alone on no makeup days.

NYX eyebrow gel in brunette (Ulta $6.99). When you put this on your brown, they will not budge. With this product, a little goes a really long way. I love that it comes in a juicy tube so you don’t have to worry about the product drying out like if it was in a pot, and since you use so little, it will last forever.

POWDERS


NYX HD finishing powder in banana (Ulta $9.99). I love this for my under eye. This brightens under the eye and is so finely milled. I don’t experience any caking with this powder. The banana shade is very pale compared to the Ben Nye banana powder which can be a too yellow if you add too much.


Ulta illuminating powder in yellow diamond (Ulta $10). I love this on its own, on top of a liquid highlighter, and mixed with another powder highlighter. If you want to glow to the Gods, then this is the illuminator for you. You can go from lit from within to lit from space with one powder, all you have to do is keep layering.

Rimmel Maxi bronzer in sun love (walgreens, idk if its discontinued cause I can’t find it anywhere). This is a very effortless everyday bronzer. I just use my fluffy short handle mineral powder brush and just dust it around the perimeter of my face and down the sides of my nose. Beautiful color.
