November Empties

Hello, hello!

I know that November isn’t over yet, but I also know that I am not close enough to finishing anything else in my stash. Any products that I finished from my Project Pan Collab are not included in these empties.

November Empties (2016)

As you can see, I only finished up a few products this month.

Makeup Empties:

November Empties (2016)

Nyx HD Studio Photogenic Foundation (reviewed here) – Would I buy it again? Probably not, but only because I’m only going to buy foundations / BB creams with SPF in them from now on. But despite this, this foundation worked great for my skin.

Nyx Dark Circle Corrector (reviewed here) -I didn’t actually finish this one, it is getting pitched because it dried out so badly that it is unusable. Would I buy again? Probably not as it didn’t work as well for me as the  Becca Undereye Brightening Corrector (reviewed here).

Nyx Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer (reviewed here) – Repurchase? Maybe. I really liked this concealer but it got pushed to the back of my stash when I was trying new concealers. It works great when my skin is normal, but not so great when my skin gets dry.

The Body Shop Wonderblur (reviewed here). I really liked this primer when I first purchased it. But when I used it recently, it was terrible and pilled when I wore it under my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. Initially the two worked well together. Maybe it dried out? I’m not sure. Would I repurchase?  Probably not.

Body Care:

Nov Empties (2016)

Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant in Ylang-Ylang & Calendula – (reviewed here). Already repurchased, this time in Cedarwood & Juniper scent. This natural deodorant works great for me, but I can’t use it every single day as it will start to irritate my skin due to the baking soda content so I switch to one of the baking soda free natural deodorants in my stash on days when I’m working from home.

Cake Beauty Delectable Hand Cream in Strawberries & Cream – (reviewed here). Would I repurchase? Maybe, but in a different scent. This was a struggle to finish, because in spite of it being a really great hand cream, the scent was too much for me!

Earth Science Naturals Deodorant  in Mint Rosemary – (reviewed here). Would I repurchase? I probably will once I use up a few more deodorants in my stash. It works pretty well but not as well as the Schmidt’s. But it is great to use when my underarm skin needs a little break from the Schmidt’s as it doesn’t contain baking soda.


Nov Empties (2016)

CO LAB Dry Shampoo in Rio tropical scent – (reviewed here). I’ve been buying this one since last winter, and it made its first appearance in my March Empties post. Already repurchased. I think that I finish up one of these every couple of months. I like this one because it has a mild scent and doesn’t make my hair feel dried out that way that a lot of dry shampoos make my hair feel.

So there you have it, not very many empties, but I’m happy to be clearing out my stash.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

  1. I just picked up a Schmidt’s deodorant the other week! Looking forward to trying it.

    I really want to try that NYX HD foundation, now. I prefer foundations without SPF, and just use a separate one. I’ve had breakout issues with some foundation SPFs.

    I didn’t care much for the Above & Beyond concealer, but my skin is dry – that’s probably why!

    1. Which scent did you get? I find that it is the best natural deodorant that I’ve tried so far, but if I use it every day, after about two weeks my underarm skin starts to get irritated. The deodorants without baking powder just don’t work as well or as long for me, but when I work from home, I use the baking soda free ones to give my skin a break.

      1. I got the same one as you did, Ylang-Ylang & Calendula! Except I got the small one in a tub. I do the same with the non-aluminum deodorants: I use AL ones when I need all-day protection, but when I’m just having a regular day I use the natural ones! I’ve read it doesn’t work so well if you use the AL ones, since they work by clogging up your pores, and take a while to unclog. But, sometimes you can’t afford to be stinky…

  2. That’s weird your NYX dark circle concealer dried out. I’m on my 2nd pot and that’s never happened to me. I personally didn’t care for the Becca one. But the Tarte CC (colored clay) one I like.
