The Empties #3

     I know I did an empties not long ago but I didn’t want to wait. For me it’s pretty annoying keeping empty bottles of items when the trash can is right there, but how else would you know what I used up. This month was a mix of things for makeup to cleanup. Some i've mentioned before and a few iIve never spoken about. 

The Face
Givenchy Photo’Perfexion Fluid in SPF 20 in #5, the coverage of this foundation is sheer to medium. The lasting power does not last the entire day. It didn’t even last the workday! I wanted to try a new foundation and this would be a good one…I was wrong. If you have oily skin skip this one. 

Origins Eye Doctor™ Moisture Care For Skin Around Eyes, is one of those I have to repurchased. I place this around the eye (on the bone under the eye) and it helps hydrate my skin. It keeps from my eye brighter from creasing on my skin. 

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, this primer is great for sensitive skin. It doesn’t irate my skin or break me out. It keeps the foundation on all day and works well with the one’s I have used (Laura Mercier Smooth Flawless and NARS Sheer Glow).

Eye & Hair
Too Faced Shadow Insurance, is my go-to primer for eyes. It has taken me over a year to finish this. I use this nearly everyday! My eye shadow does not crease and it makes my shadow last all day long.

Clinique Quickliner for Eyes, this is my go-to, everyday, Holy Grail liner. The pigment is amazing, it last all day. I actually did a post of this long ago, see here.

NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, this is quite expensive for an eye primer but it works. A little of this primer will last you all day. My shadow not only last all day but my eye shadow doesn’t crease. It’s really good for oily lids.

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil, this is another great product for my hair. Since using this I notice I haven’t had split ends in years. I find that it saves my hair from my hair dryer.

Ponds Wet Cleansing Towelettes (Original), sometimes I’m a bit lazy or I want to clean my face quick I grab these. They don’t irritate my skin and they take off all my makeup.

Almay Makeup Eraser Sticks, these are great for removing makeup under the eyes when you liner smudges during the day. Did I mention they were great to carry Q-tips in when you travel!

Cutex Strengthening Nail Polish Remover, is my favorite brand of polish. I find that this brand removes polish easily. It doesn’t make my nails weak and it’s not too expensive.

Note: Sorry for the really late post but i've been have technical issues with blogger and iPhoto. I think everything is working now. :)



  1. Hi. Great Blog. I'm curious as to what the Origins Eye Doctor Moisture Care product does. Does it help reduce dark circles around the eyes or is it strictly a moisturizer? Is this a product that is applied overnight while one sleeps or do you apply it in the morning to seep into the skin during the day? I'm interested in purchasing this product. Let me know. Keep up the good work!

  2. I'll do a product review on this soon. Thanks for the questions and comment.
