The following is a list of all entries from the Empties category.

Products to use up in 2013

Have a quick look on Youtube, and you can see a huge shift in attitudes.

There are less and less haul videos, and more (New Year inspired?) resolutions to use more of what you already have.

Project 10 pan, Make out 2013, I’m a beauty hoarder, and why not, the Nail Polish Lottery club are all here to save us.

2011 and 2012 were big shopping years for me. I have a feeling this is going to change in 2013. My collection is just the right size now, so it is time I should start enjoying it.

Inspired by the Youtube “Products to use up in 2013” videos, I made my list as well. You can watch it here:

On my list for 2013 you’ll mostly find products I really, really love. Almost all of these are star products for me:

  • Lancome Teint Idole foundation
  • No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream
  • Revlon – Pink in the afternoon lipstick
  • L’Oreal Caresse – Cheeky Magenta
  • Laura Mercier lip glace – Pink tule
  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable lip balm – 01 honey
  • Eyeshadow I’d like to see pan on one of these eyeshadows: MAC satin taupe, L’Oreal Infailible eyeshadows
  • MAC paint pot in soft ochre
  • NARS Orgasm blush
  • Various perfume samples and full size Thierry Mugler Alien

Just Empties #1 – Clinique, Aqua di Parma

I love watching Youtube empties videos. Don’t you? It is one of my favorite things to do, as it tells me a lot about what others are using.

But unlike other Youtubers I hate hanging on to empty packaging, and most importantly I don’t have that much space available to store it.

What to do? Here is where blogging beats vlogging. I am going to just post in here any make up empties, as soon as I’m done with them. Clean house, clean make up area, problem solved!

So here we go, I have two empties for you today.

Product name and pricing:
Clinique Even Better Make up SPF 15 foundation.
£23 for 30ml on the Clinique website
Finished in:
January 2013
Had it for…
1 year and half! I thought I’ll never finish this tube!
The claims are…
Anti-aging, Covers or treats uneven skin tone, Mineral enriched, Long wearing
What did I think of it?
A great liquid foundation, with medium buildable coverage. Long lasting, around 8 hours on normal combination skin. A great color match for my skin tone.
Will I repurchase?
No because there are too many other foundations to try out. I must have them all!

Clinque Even Better Make Up SPF 15

Clinque Even Better Make Up SPF 15

Product name and pricing:
Aqua di Parma Blu Mediteraneo – Mirto di Panarea edt
£74 for 150 ml on Space NK
Finished in:
January 2013
Had it for…
1 month. It came with my Space NK Boxing Day sale items. Surprisingly, I actually used it and it’s not gathering dust.
The claims are…
Panarea, the smallest and oldest of the Aeolian Islands, seems suspended in time. It’s evoked by a fragrance with a regenerating top, characterised by the aromatic notes of myrtle and basil together with lemon and bergamot. At the heart, a sea breeze accord melts with jasmine and rose. An intense base with lentiscus and juniper, combined with cedar wood and amber.
What did I think of it?
I really liked it and was surprised that I did.
Will I repurchase?
I would, but I need to finish lots of other perfumes first.
