The One With The Empties

Wednesday, 19 August 2015

Breakfast at Tiffany's, Garnier Micellar Water, MAC Prep + Prim, Rimmel BB Cream, Benefit Fake Up, Sleek Concealer Palette.

As I was cleaning out my make up I came to realise I have a lot of empties and by a lot I mean an excessive amount of them. Instead of throwing them out of course I thought “hey let’s keep ‘em and write a blog post about them!” Instead of posting about roughly 20/25 products at once I decided I would pick the empties I would definitely restock. 

GARNIER MICELLAR WATER
I have featured this beauty in about 3 different blog posts now. I don’t find it to be too trustworthy so I use it as part of a double cleansing regime in which I follow up with my Korres Gel Cleanser afterwards. It works pretty well as a make up remover and that is exactly how I like to use it, to make my face make up free before bed. I do enjoy how smoothly it runs over the skin and how soft my skin feels afterwards.

MAC PREP + PRIM PRIMER
Now this is just the sample size as I am super, super picky with the primers I use and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on something I wasn’t going to like. I love how this primer gives your face an even base to start applying product to, it feels super soft and it keeps my foundation in place all day long. For someone who isn’t a fan of Benefit’s Porefessional, this is my Holy Grail primer.

BENEFIT FAKE UP CONCEALER
I find it super difficult to get a concealer to cover the bags under my eyes, I mean I am a student with a love for late night Netflix sessions so I do have them quite often. Since I discovered Fake Up I haven’t had such an issue, with the moisturising centre and cover up outer this concealer is easy to slip over those bags and keeps me from looking like part of The Walking Dead cast on a regular basis.

RIMMEL MATTE BB CREAM
I adore wearing BB creams on those warmer days, especially ones which give that “no make up” appearance and this BB cream does just that. I can apply this all over my face, cover those bags, cover those blemishes and everyone would think I just had perfect porcelain skin. My only issue is that it doesn’t come in many shades so I do need to mix two together to get my shade.

SLEEK CONCEALER PALETTE
I bought this after reading a blog post all about how great it was and I have to agree, I use the darker colour to cover my blemishes and the lighter tone as a subtle highlighter if I don’t want to redirect light with my cheekbone. I would say it’s definitely a dupe for Benefit’s Boi-ing, it has the exact same consistency, just a little less coverage, but more than half the price. Definitely something to think about if you don’t get many spots.

I hope you enjoyed this post,
Are you an empty hoarder?
