Empties - August 2019

Another month has gone and it's unfortunately the end of summer. I can't believe how quickly it went by, but I can't wait for Fall to come. I'm not sure I used up as many empties as I would have liked, but lets see what I've used up in August 2019!

Let's just jump right in...

Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer Water
I'm not sure if I had mentioned in my previous empties post but I had poured another setting spray into this bottle. I liked the smashbox primer water but I think I prefer Mac Fix + more.

Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner in Trooper
Probably my favourite liquid liner with a brush tip. I have yet to find something that I like as much as this. I've already repurchased.

Lise Watier - Feline Eyeliner HD
I wanted to love this liner but I couldn't really enjoy it. I found the formula bled a lot, so it never looked precise. It also would leave me with racoon eyes at the end of the day and never really dry down. I wouldn't repurchase this.

Artdeco - High Precision Liquid Eyeliner
This is a brush tip liner, which is why I purchased it. But I found that the tip was never saturated enough and it dried out way too quickly. I even made sure to store it downwards so the ink would be flowing to the tip. Pass. Would never buy again.

Too Faced - Damn Girl! Mascara
I'm honestly shocked at how much I loved this mascara. It fanned out my lashes and made them look so thick. My only complaint is that it dried out quickly. But I'm not sure if thats just because its a sample size. I would consider purchasing a full size.

Vichy - Mineral 89 Skin Fortifying Daily Booster
I use this like a serum. A tip I had heard online was to treat this as a hydrating serum and to layer it. First, use a mist on the skin. Then use this as a serum to trap that moisture in, and then to be sure to layer something a little thicker over top. I've noticed my skin feels more hydrated when I use this serum consistently. I've already repurchased because my skin just doesn't feel the same without it.

Pixi - Hydrating Milky Serum
I kept hearing wonderful things about pixi skincare items so I had to give this a try. Its lightweight and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. It adds a light layer of hydration also. I like to use it after the vichy, especially when my skin feels very tight. While I really enjoyed it, I found I used it up very quickly. I haven't repurchased yet because I'm testing another milky serum, but I would reconsider purchasing another in the future

Project Beauty - Hairgurt Smoothing Yogurt Shampoo
I'm not sure if this stuff went bad before I got a chance to finish it up, but it was so liquidy. Even if I shook it before using it. Also it was very heavily scented as yogurt and artificial banana. I wasn't a fan of this and I wouldn't repurchase it in the future.

Maui Moisture - Curl Crunch and Coconut Oil Moisture Shampoo
My neighbour actually passed this on to me, and I was hoping it would help define the waves I have in my hair but I found that it didn't so much. It smelled wonderful but it was just your average shampoo. I wouldn't repurchase it.

Pureology Serious Hair Color - Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner
I feel ike these were a little hydrating and gentle but theres never enough product in these samples to really give it a try. I would consider purchasing if it was the right price.

Bath and Body Works - Foaming Hand Soaps in Cranberry Peach Prosecco and Watermelon Lemonade
We already know I love the foaming hand soaps from bath and body works, and these are just as great as the others. Both scents were super fruity. I've already repurchased back ups in these, and other scents.

Bath and Body Works - 3 wick candle in Pomegranate
I love the 3 wick candles and this is another great product. The scent is strong and fruity, and I never had any issues with it flooding. I would consider repurchasing this scent, but I have a bunch of others to use up.

Scentsy - Wax Bars in Pink Promenade and Blueberry Cheesecake
I'm just using up amazing scents this month lol. Blueberry Cheesecake is probably my most favourite scentsy scent. It fills up the room with sweet fruitiness, but it doesn't have a cheesy smell if that is what you are worried about. I was skeptical about this one but its definitely my favorite.
Pink promenade is great too. Fruity but tart. I've purchased it in the laundry products also.

I only managed to use up 16 products in the month of August. Lets hope September is better!
