Hello and happy Sunday. Welcome to another edition of “empties.” By now we all know how it works, no? Okay, let’s review: I’ll list the products I found on my “empties” bin and tell you what I think about them. Pretty easy, huh? Let’s get started, shall we?
My dad gave this to me, and I talked about it in this post. I initially said I liked it, but the truth is I rarely used it. I’m an eyeliner pen kinda girl, so I think that made me not reach for this. It’s super pigmented, but I had a problem with it taking forever to dry. I think that was also a reason for me not to use this eyeliner. Basically, it’s in my empties bin because I’m not going to use.
I couldn’t find the name of this lipstick, and I’m pretty sure it’s discontinued, but I used to love it. The reason why it’s in my empties bin is that it broke. It actually broke when I was recording myself putting makeup on, which is something I do on Instagram stories at least once a week. There’s no way it can be fixed, and I have many other lippies, so I don’t think it’s worth keeping one that’s broken.
I don’t know if this is sold in the States, but it’s very used in Colombia. Originally, it was this thing you sprayed on your arms and legs to make the hairs blond, but many people uses it for the hair, too. The product I owned was specifically designed to make your hair progressively lighter. It was travel size, so after applying it everyday for about two weeks, I ran out. I’m not repurchasing it because I’m currently trying to go back to my natural hair color, which is a dark ash blond.
This was my only setting spray for a long time, and it never let me down. I literally ran out one day before traveling to the States, and there I bought one bottle of the dewy setting spray and one of the matte.
I got this in an Ipsy Glam Bag, but it must’ve been a long time ago because I didn’t find it in any unboxing. Anyway, just like other products I’ve gotten in subscription boxes, I used it and it was nice, but when I ran out I didn’t think about buying the full-size version or anything. I used it as a moisturizer, and I liked the way it made my skin feel.
I got a teeny tiny sample in a Colombian subscription box called Sensebox, and I was super excited because I felt like I was finally in on the Porefessional game like all the cool girls. I really wanted to love this product, and I used it all, which wasn’t hard because, did you see the size of the tube I got? The truth is, I felt this is one of those primers that “vanishes” your pores, and while some people love the effect they have on their skin and its texture, this type of product makes my skin breakout like crazy. That, and the price are the two reasons why I wouldn’t buy this primer in full size.
That’s it for today’s post. In the comments, I’d like you to tell me about a product you love and would repurchase over and over.
Love, Miss Camila
