Empties #4

18 December 2014

beauty emptiesI hate to start yet another blog post with yet another apology but my photos have been shocking thanks to the total absence of any daylight. I’ve got an empties post today which is about as festive as Gordon Ramsay’s mood on a bad day. Is anyone else feeling a bit fed up with all this Christmas stuff? I know I am.

Garnier Miracle Skin Cream, £12.99
(Review here) I love this and wear it pretty much solidly in place of foundation. Brilliant skincare option for the lazy girl.

Repurchase? Already have

Nivea Daily Essenitals Express Hydration Primer, £4.99
(Review here) Another great product for the lazy girl. Are you sensing a pattern? A moisturiser and primer in one, and super fast drying – I always have one of these in my stash for when I’m in a rush.

Repurchase? Already have

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, £4.99
You’re probably sick of hearing about this micellar water so I won’t go on about it too much. A good, reliable staple that should be in everyone’s skincare collection. Even if it’s just to clean up blusher explosions in your makeup bag. It’s a monster size for less than a fiver (and relentlessly on offer) so no need to be shy with it.

Clinique All About Eyes, £42 for 30ml
This was a free sample, which despite its tiny size, lasted an absolute age – a little goes a long way. It’s got a cooling gel formula and it’s everything you’d need in an eye cream – smooth, hydrating, quick drying, reduces fine lines, makes your concealer go on better. Not sure it reduces puffiness and circles as it claims to but it’s nice to use nonetheless. However I’m not loyal to one eye cream, and I’m not keen on the finger-pot action so probably not a repurchase.

Repurchase? No

Nivea Daily Essentials Double Effect Makeup Remover, £3.59
(Review here) I clearly enjoyed using this when I reviewed it. However, as time went on, I found that speed at which it separates became even quicker and I ended up using unequal amounts of liquid to oil, causing disaster and reduced effectiveness, and rather a greasy finish. The search for the perfect eye makeup remover continues.

Repurchase? No

Burt’s Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit, £3.69
I don’t know how excited you can get about lip balms but this was nice enough. It’s not going to set the world on fire but it is moisturising, smells delicious and doesn’t leave an overly glossy appearance. Perfect for chucking in your handbag or keeping by your desk. I rarely repurchase the same stick lip balm over and over, I prefer to try different ones each time so probably not a repurchase.

Repurchase? No

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist Dark, £5.99
(Review here) I found this colour to be a bit off for my eyebrows and not quite pigmented enough. However, since writing my review, I’ve found the Sleek Eyebrow stylist is actually quite nice to use on the front parts of the eyebrows, if like me, your eyebrows don’t start close enough to the middle of your forehead (this probably makes no sense). I’m still very undecided as you can probably tell.

Repurchase? Maybe
