Empties Post #2 (February, March, and April)

I did my first Empties post back in January, and I realized that I have been saving up my empties for another post for almost 3 months! I felt like there wasn't enough to do them per month but now I have a lot!
I'm going to share what I finished up and my thoughts on each product! 

Makeup Empties 

Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation- I love this foundation. It's probably my all time favorite. I was so sad when I finished it up! I went back to sephora and online to buy it again and my shade was sold out! I will be repurchasing it asap though!

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation- I think this was my second bottle that I finished up. This is my favorite drugstore foundation and I already repurchased. 

Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream- I bought this one when I was super into BB creams a while ago. I liked it but I don't use BB creams anymore so I won't repurchase. I liked this the best out of all the BB creams I have tried though. 

Urban Decay All Nighter Spray- I love this stuff and have gone though so many bottles. 

Rimmel Stay Mattw Powder- This is another one that I have gone through a ton and already repurchased. 

Covergirl Bombshell Mascara- I really loved this stuff but it is so freaking hard to get off. I probably won't repurchase because it was such a hassle trying to get it off each night, I had to like scrub my eyes. 

Em Cosmetics by Michelle Phan Lasg Gallery Mascara- I got this in an Ipsy Bag and I absolutely loved it. It made my lashes so thick and long. I don't want to pay the $20 for a new one though so I won't repurchase. 

Benefit They're Real Mascara- I got this sample in my birthday gift from sephora. I liked it but this is another one that was super hard to get off. Again, I wouldn't want to spend the $20 on it and I like some of my drugstore ones better. 

Chella Eye Brow Gel- This was another Ipsy or Birch Box goodie. I liked it but I'm not picky about brow gel. I won't purchase because I have other kinds now. 

Mac Paint Pot in Bare Study- I loved this one but I was excited to use it up. I haven't used up a whole product like this before! I will probably get this one again eventually but I purchased the Painterly Paint Pot instead. 

Benefit Porefessional- This is a mini size from Ipsy. I already purchased the full size. 

Anastasia Brow Whiz- There are two of these there that I used up. This is my favorite brow pencil so I already got a new one. 

L'Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Eye Pencil- This is my favorite drugstore eye pencil and already got a new one! 

Skin Care Empties 

Olay Oil Minimizing Toner- I've used up ton of these through the years and repurchased just as many. 

Neutrogena Deep Clean Scrub- Another one that I've used up a ton and repurchased a lot. 

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser- I've used up 2 of these in the past few months. This is my favorite face cleanser and I always repurchase it. 

Cetaphil Cleansing Cloths- These came free with one of the cleansers. I didn't care for them. 

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes- I acutually used up way more than this one pack (probably like 20 lol) but I didn't feel like hoarding them.  These are my favorite.

Lush Mask of Magnaminty- I've raved about this face mask so much. I already repurchased it. 

Lush Honey Trap Lip Balm- This stuff is amazing. I already got a new one. 

Solid Beauty Blender Cleanser- This isn't really a skin care product but oh well lol. This is the best thing I've used to clean my beauty blender. I already repurchased. 

Aveeno Body Wash- I used up two of these ones in the scent white peach and ginger. These are my favorite body wash. 

By Skin Mineral Bath- This was given to me by someone who sells Nu Skin. It's like a bubble bath and makes your bath water super nice. That's all I really know about this though. 

Hair Product Empties

John Frieda Root Awakening Shampoo and Conditioner- These are my favorite shampoo and conditioner! I think they are being discontinued and I'm so sad!

Healthy Sexy Hair Full hairspray- This is my favorite hairspray. I've gone through a lot of these. 

John Frieda Frizz Ease hairspray- This is my favorite drugstore hair spray. Another one that I've gone through a lot of. 

It's a 10 leave in conditioner- This stuff is amazing. I'm trying out the one with keratin in it right now. 

This is all the products I've used up recently! 
Have you tried any of these? Leave your thoughts on them in the comments! 


  1. Cetaphil was recommended to me by my dermatologist. It's so good! I have to try that setting spray by Urban Decay. A lot of people have mentioned how wonderful it is.

  2. Wow way to go through those products girl!!! Congrats! Especially on using up a whole paint pot!!

    1. Haha thanks Margo! I was excited about using up the paint pot!

  3. You used up a good bit of products! I go through a lot of cetaphil products too! Have you ever tried the Cetaphil soap? It's a good product too. I like They're Real Mascara, but I agree it's hard to get it off!

    1. I have not tried that soap but I will check it out!! I wish the mascara wasn't so hard to get off too!

  4. So many empties girl, good for you! I really want to try the Covergirl foundation, I've only heard good things about it!

  5. i was curious about the MP mascara! glad to know you liked it! some of her stuff is h&m for me.

    1. That mascara is actually the only makeup item I've tried from her line! I heard moxed things about the mascara when it came in ipsy bags, but it's one of the best I've used!

  6. Wow, you went through a lot! I love empties posts. I definitely want to try that covergirl foundation and its a 10. I love the rimmel stay matte and UD setting spray too.

    1. I think I use the Covergirl foundation more than any of my other ones right now! And it's a 10 is really amazing
