I saw this tag floating around and it tickled my fancy as I’ve been considering a spending ban. Truth be told, that probably won’t happen but finishing up some products might make me feel a little less disgusted at the amount of stuff I have. Looking at the photo, I realise I cheated by picking three skincare products which tend to easier to use up than makeup…and the makeup products I’ve chosen are almost finished anyway. What a rubbish start.
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation NC42, £25
This was my first ever MAC foundation. Actually it was my first ever foundation that matched my skin tone…and that was only two years ago. I realise I should have chucked this away by now but I couldn’t bear it. I’ve got it on today and so far my skin hasn’t fallen off. A trusty old friend that perhaps I’ve neglected recently.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer 25, £5.99
I really like this concealer for brightening and highlighting the under eye area. I’ve had it for a few months and I use it several times a week. The packaging looks suspiciously like the NARS Creamy Concealer but certainly doesn’t feel as luxe. It’s also got less coverage than NARS but it’s a good choice for daytime.
Una Brennan Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Skin Defence Daily Moisturiser, £16.99
Pump? Check. SPF? Check. Zesty scent? Check. Fast Drying? Check. I’ve been using this as my day cream pretty much every single day since February and it’s still going. I can just about see through it in the light and I think it’s sadly coming to an end. I could buy another one or console myself by cracking open one of the others eagerly waiting in my drawer…we shall see.
The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion, £14
One of the most effective exfoliators I’ve come across, I rub my face with with this about once a week. My face is genuinely brighter afterwards although this product feels a lot harsher than I first expected…but I’ll just take that as proof that it actually works.
Soap & Glory Peaches & Clean Cleanser, £8
I like this but I don’t love it enough to use it more than once or twice a week. I’ve got another one of these from the S&G Christmas set which hasn’t been opened so I feel Peaches & Clean will be with me for a while yet!
So, that’s your lot, you’ll hopefully be seeing these in an upcoming Empties post. If like me, you haven’t been tagged, you should do it anyway – break free from the shackles of etiquette! Don’t forget to leave me your links if you do.
