Make Up Empties

I've been meaning to write this post for ages. I did't complete my project 10 pan as I did pick up a few bits but I definitely reduced my make up buying (until this week, but I was spending birthday vouchers!). I separated my make up empties from my normal ones as I had so many.




I have a lot of mascaras, I probably have more than 10 brand new unopened but I haven't been letting myself open anymore new ones until I used some up.

Jemma Kidd Make up School I-Glamour Volume. This came free in a magazine and I've never really got on with it. I found the formula too wet and didn't like the results. 

YSL Shocking (Review). This mascara leaves me in two minds. I love it and the results it gives. I do find it's better once it's been open for a few weeks. I must have been lucky as I didn't find it dried out like everyone said it did. Mine lasted at least 6 months (yes I know mascaras shouldn't be open that long but I've never had a problem doin it). I do find the results similar to 17 Peep Show mascara which is a much more reasonable price. I think I would re purchase if I had money.

Collection Skyscraper. This is a mascara I picked up in savers. It has a plastic wand which I don't usually like. It was ok but for me not a repurchase.


Maybelline the smoother. This was one of the first clear primers I got. I like the lighter weight texture of this but don't find it performs as well as Revlon Photoready primer. I do think it's better for fine lines though. Another not repurchase for me.

Collection Primed & Ready. To be honest I don't like this at all. It's quite a thick clear primer and for me it doesn't improve wear time or oil control.

Rimmel Match Perfection. I really like this concealer. It's a highlighting and concealing. I really like this and it's the second tube I've got. It's perfect for under the yes and I'd definitely get it again.

Mac Pro Longwear (Review). This was the first ever high end make up item I bought. At first I loved it but then I thought there was better out there but every time I try this I like it more. I will be repurchasing this as I still thing it offers great coverage, doesn't look cakey and really lasts.

No7 Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser. I really love this. It offers soft natural coverage and is great for lazy days. I will be doing a full review soon. I have all ready repurchased this.


Revlon Lip Butter Candy Apple. This was the first and up until recently was my only lip butter. I go through phases with this. It has great pigmentation but I didn't think it was as moisturising as everyone said. I also think it run out quite quickly. The colour is very bright true red. For me I think I'd repurchase a colour like Red Velvet instead.


Natural Collection Loose Powder Neutral Translucent. This was picked up because I forgot my powder one time when I went home. I ended up really loving it. It's light weight, controls my oil and helps my make up last. Best of all it's a bargain!! Will by a repurchase.

Collection Fix Me Up. This is ok but doesn't work all that way and actually works out more expensive than Urban Decay so I won't be repurchasing this.

I'm finally starting to use up more make up. I just need to keep it up now.

Love M
