Empty products #4

Versiunea în limba română a acestui articol o găsiți aici.

Here I am again with another article. These pictures are over a month old but I never got around to write the article. These are products I got to empty over the months of Spring. There were a lot more, like shower gels, shampoo, but I didn’t have much space in my last apratament, so I decided to keep only the important ones.

Here we go!

batiste, la roche posay

La Roche Posay Effaclar Micellar Water (200ml)

I love the brand and I’m  very sorry to say it, but this doesn’t really work. It’s pretty expensive (it starts at 10 Euro, I think) and I think for the money you could buy Bioderma or a couple of Garnier (400ml).

Repurchase: NO!

Batiste dry shampoo in Cherry – Fruity & Cheeky (200ml)

I love Batiste dry shampoos, so I liked this one too. The scent is nice but my favorite is Tropical.

Repurchase: Already did (Tropical)

too faced better than sex, avon luxe

Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara (deluxe size)

I tried it, I loved it and now I understand the hype around it. Even so, I think it’s a bit too expensive and there are other products that offer pretty much the same result.

Repurchase: Maybe (in a more distant future)

AVON Luxe mascara in Caviar Black

It’s a nice mascara with slightly curved wand. I would say it’s a good dupe for Better Than Sex mascara (and a lot cheaper).

Repurchase: Probably yes, after I finish what I have now in my stash

essence make me brow, rimmel wake me up concealer

essence make me brow in 02 browny brows

I think it’s a bit too dark for me. Otherwise I like the formula and how it applies, but I found another product that’s better for me.

Repurchase: Maybe, if the ones from NYX or Soap&Glory aren’t available

Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in 100 Ivory

One of my favorite concealers so far. It has light coverage and brightens up the under eye area. So it’s perfect for lazy days when you want just a bit of makeup that you know will look good on you.

Repurchase: Yes, when I finish what have now in my stash

nyx, benefit stay don't stray

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara in Brunette

I liked this product a lot, but the only drawback is the long brush. It makes the application a bit harder, but you can easily wipe the wet product from your face if that’s the case.

Repurchase: Maybe, because now I like the product from Soap&Glory more (smaller brush, better shade for me)

benefit stay don’t stray eyeshadow primer

This was a deluxe size product I got when I bought Primping with the Stars kit. I try to like this product so much because I love benefit as a brand, but unfortunately, I just can’t. I think the elf eyeshadow primer (old formula) was better than this one. This product somedays was OK, others was not good at all. And for my oily lids it isn’t an option.

Repurchase: No

avon femme

AVON Femme body souffle (150ml)

It’s a nice, light formula, but I have to be honest: the scent too much. It’s very sweet, very powerful and it stays with you for a few hours. Even though I like it, because of the scent, I can’t use it everyday. I can only use it once a week.

Repurchase: No

elf high definition powder

e.l.f. High Definition powder in Translucent

It’s a white, loose powder. I liked it a lot. It doesn’t look cakey and it sets the makeup OK. In the end, I used it more to set my under eye concealer.

Repurchase: Yes, but maybe I will just but the smaller pot (for under eyes)

I hope you liked this article. What propucts have you emptied lately?

  1. Mascara de la Too Faced este și preferata mea. Aștept să îmi termin toate produsele de acest gen (și să ajung în 28 iulie 2017 :))) și să o cumpăr. Concelearul de la Rimmel este okay, dar muuult mai fain este cel de la Maybelline.. cel hype-uit maxim pe internet.
    Îmi place cum ai scris articolul 😉 foarte clar și la subiect 😉

    • Multumesc. Ma bucur mult ca iti place articolul 😀
      Mascara mea preferata e Roller Lash de la Benefit. Ti-o recomand (pe 28 iulie 2017), daca nu ai incercat-o inca.
      Concealerul de la Maybelline (Anti Age…) am auzit si eu ca e foarte bun si il am pe lista. Teoretic ar trebui sa pun mana pe el relativ curand, mai ales acum ca am acces usor la el, fiind in Germania.

  2. Trebuie sa incerc si eu mai multe de sprancene.. Si al meu s-a terminat :))
    SI trebuie neaparat sa incerc Better than Sex.. desi mai am acasa o groaza de altele – dar care sunt dubluri si atunci nu-mi vine sa le deschid acum

    • Incearca Better than Sex, dar trebuie sa ai putin grija. Din cand in cand iti face genele cam prea dramatice si poate sa-ti lipeasca genele intre ele. Dar daca ai periuta de la Roller Lash sau orice alta periuta de gene o sa fie OK. Am uitat sa scriu asta in articol 😦


  3. I’m not big concealer-user but this from Rimmel I liked. But I didn’t use it long time and I guess it just spoiled as it started to smell weird so I needed to throw it away.
    Recently I didn’t finish anything I think except small Bioderma micellar water. 🙂

    • I like to use concealer under my eyes, chin and around my nose. I don’t like to do many layer of foundation and so I just put on concealer. That’s why I don’t have much problem if the concealer isn’t high coverage.

      PS: I might be back soon with opinions about another concealer 😀


      • I just apply a layer of foundation and if something seen through let it be 😀 It’s a way of making economy on concealers..but at the same time you make economy with foundations:)

      • I agree and I don’t have a problem if my pimples can be seen under foundation (I only get maybe 2 of them once a month). My problem is under my eyes with melasma. It’s better now but still visible enough with just foundation. Most of the times even with concealer.


      • Are spots dark or more of freckles colour? I think it’s not bad if it’s a little visible anyway. Big layer of full coverage product definitely looks worse:) And I’m sure your problem will pass 😉 You know my words come true when I say them to you:D
