Cumulative Monthly Empties April to July 2020

Hello, hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have a cumulative empties post. I decided to only do a monthly empties post if I have at least 5 products finished. So now I have empties collecting from April to July! I’ll let you know if I plan to re-buy or not, either right away or eventually, and link to my original reviews.

Haircare & Bodycare:

Monthly Empties Apr to Jul 2020 1

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask and Scalp Revival Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo – these were minis form the Sephora annual birthday gift. Loved both of these, I would like to buy full sizes eventually. Review is here. *Sephora Beauty Insider freebie*

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Cream – I LOVE this one. I’ve re-purchased this a few times, and plan on getting it again as soon as I finish up one of the other body creams / lotions in my stash. Review is here.

Skincare:

Monthly Empties Apr to Jul 2020 2

The Inkey List Collagen Booster and Hepta-Peptide Serums – I love facial serums, and will probably re-purchase eventually. I have a few serums on my wish-list that I would like to try first. Reviews are here and here.

Not pictured: There was also an oil cleanser (Aromatica Natural Coconut Cleansing Oil) from my CertClean judging package that I had not yet reviewed, but I cannot find the bottle – I think that the Mister recycled it already, oops! I have a few more oil cleansers to use up, so I won’t need to buy any for awhile! *PR / judging package product*

Makeup: 

Monthly Empties Apr to Jul 2020 3

FitGlow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara – I scored this mascara a 5 out of 7. It is a nice mascara, but it isn’t a great one for me personally, as my eyes are way too watery for this formula. Review is here.

Essence All Eyes on Me Waterproof Multi-Effect Mascara – I scored this one a 5.75 out of 7. It didn’t give me enough volume, but it is a good waterproof lengthening mascara – but I want volume. Review is here.

So there you have it, my cumulative monthly empties – I didn’t finish up as much as I thought I would and I have several skincare products that are so close to being finished up, so maybe I’ll have more next time. But progress is progress when it comes to using up products rather than wasting them!

Did you finish up much this month (or over the past couple of months)?

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Fitglow Beauty Goodlash + Mascara that came in my January Petit Vour box [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

3-in-1 vegan mascara, amplifies lash volume and length while nourishing lashes with powerful botanical extracts and plant protein to promote lash health and growth. The multitasking mascara/serum/conditioner enhances the look of lashes on a day-to-day basis plus provides potent vitamins and antioxidants to help lashes grow thicker, denser and fuller. Frail and brittle lashes are strengthened and protected by organic emulsion which prevents breakage and leaves lashes looking rich and full.

I am so picky about mascara. I have long, super stick-straight lashes. They are quite light in colour considering my natural hair colour is dark brown. Because my lashes are straight, I always use a lash curler before applying mascara. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and water-resistant (ideally waterproof).

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara measure up?

1. waterproof / water resistant +0 This is not a water-proof or water-resistant mascara. And I have eyes that water very easily.

2. smudge-proof +1/2 This mascara was not smudgeproof on me. It was not horror movie level smudging, but definite darkness under the eyes by the end of the day.

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1 No flaking or clumping!

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black) +1 Very dark black!

5. volumizing +3/4 It gave my lashes some volume, but not as much as I was hoping for

6. must hold a curl +3/4 It held a curl pretty well, for most of the day.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1 My lashes felt soft after using this mascara and my eyes were not at all irritated.

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

The wand is a nice conical shape, great for the inner and outer lash corners. Overall, I would score this mascara a 5 out of 7. It is a really nice mascara, just not a mascara for me due to my watery eyes. If you don’t have watery eyes, this might be an awesome mascara for you. I will continue to use it on days that I’m working from home to get the lash conditioning benefits. If they ever make a waterproof version, I would definitely want to try it!

Have you tried this mascara, did you like it?

I do enjoy a good cleansing milk and this one sounds great. I may have to stash it away for a bit as I think I have two cleansing milks in rotation right now.
