EMPTIES | PRODUCTS I'VE USED UP



Hello lovelies! I thought I'd share with you a few products that I've used up over the past few months and what my thoughts were about them!

I receive this as a gift for my birthday last year and as you can see from the photo I only have a tiny bit left, barely enough to cover my brush! I've really loved using this powder, it's got a lovely medium coverage and keeps my skin looking shine-free and photo ready all day long. I use the shade c2 but I find this to be a slight be too orange for me, although not so much that you'd really notice it. I'm so sad as I can't afford to repurchase this right now, so I'll be investing in something slightly cheaper.. Now, excuse me while I sob into my empty purse.

If you so my January favourites (here) you'll have seen that this little beauty has become a holy grail product for me. I'm now on to my second bottle and it is working just as well as it did the first time around. It's helped control my oiliness unbelievably well and I recommend it to anybody searching for products to control their oily/combination skin. 

This foundation is a liquid mousse foundation, at first this completely baffled me and I failed to understand how a foundation could be both mousse AND liquid?! Crazy stuff right there people. It turns out that it's basically just a thick, almost creamy formula, it isn't at all runny but is so so easy to work with and blend. It keeps the skin matte but I found myself applying powder to cover some shine halfway through the day but that could be due to my extremely oily skin. All round this is a good foundation with a full coverage for an amazing price.

This is a well known and loved mascara by many. I initially discovered this after running out of my own mascara and having to use my mums! I instantly loved it and went out to get myself a tube. This mascara gave my lashes great length and is extremely black which is always a great thing for me. The one thing I didn't love about this mascara was the lack of volume it gave to my lashes. That being said, adding a volumizing mascara on top my lashes looked full, long and just great.

I've previously owned the original Daisy fragrance by Marc Jacobs and I absolutely loved it. When the new Daisy Dream fragrance came out I was so excited and had to get myself a small bottle! I love this scent.  It's sweet, delicate and fresh which I personally love in a fragrance. I found the lasting power of this perfume to be lacking compared to the original Daisy Fragrance but it still lasted a few hours at a time and the smell is just beautiful.

See you soon!

  3. Maybelline Great Lash is a trusty favourite of mine. I don't use it every day but I always have one in my stash. I think it was the first ever mascara I used, and it's far more affordable than others! Daisy Dream is a gorgeous perfume.

    1. I agree! I tend to use it on my bottom lashes now as its dried out, it makes it easier to separate them and keep them clump free!x

    1. Thank you! :-) it's a lovely budget foundation, Rimmel are great for good quality but low prices! I'm also using the Revlon colour stay, it's about to run out though so I have no idea what to try next! x

  5. I didn't get on with Great Lash at all :( I must try the Studio Fix powder/foundation though as I love the fluid version! xx

    1. Oh no that's a shame! It's a great powder, my sister actually used it in place of her foundation and it looked amazing on her, I need a full coverage though so it didn't look great on its own for me but with a foundation underneath it made my skin look flawless! I want to try a foundation from Mac, everybody seems to swear by them!Xx

  7. I'm glad the Clean and Clear lotion worked for you! I bought it hoping to use it on breakouts but it was too severe on my skin. It felt like it was peeling off my face! My eyes couldn't stop watering! Im Using the Neutrogena Grapefruit wash now.
    Great Post! :) I really want the Marc Jacobs perfume and now your post has made me want it more! haha!

    1. That's a shame to here! I can definitely agree there though, Its pretty strong considering its for 'sensitive skin' at first it really stung my eyes and kind of hurt but I think my skin has gotten used to it and it doesn't sting at all now, it just leaves me feeling so fresh and awake! x
