In an attempt to declutter and become more of a conscious consumer, I started saving all my empties in the last half of last year. This has made me more aware of how much I was using and how fast- I don’t feel that I wasted anything, but it did act as a reminder to STOP buying products and finish up what I had.
I want to share what I’ve used up and review the products.
Batiste Dry Shampoo
This is one of my fave dry shampoo. I like the original better than the brown hair version but overall good.
Laura Mercier Concealer
For such a small container, this lasted a long time. It’s a nice thick consistency and blends really well.
Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray
I must’ve gone through a couple of these in the past year. I like setting my makeup with this when I’m going out or for special occasions. I find that it makes a difference.
Sebastian Potion Styling Treatment
I had this for quite a long time, I like that it was smoothing and a treatment at the same time.
First Aid Ultra Repair Cream
I received this in one of my Ipsy bags. I didn’t love the smell but the formula itself was actually hydrating.
Maybelline FIT me Foundation Stick
As a drug store option for foundation sticks this one is pretty good. I found it a bit sheer, but overall a good foundation for day to day use and the colour matching was pretty good.
NARS Audacious Mascara
This mascara was pretty good, I found it dried out rather quickly in the tube though.
Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner
This is my favourite eyeliner ! I love it and I keep rebuying it.
Smashbox Brow Tech Eyebrow Pencil
I got this as part of the Sephora Favourites Brow Set, but this wasn’t my favourite product in the box. I found it greasy and that it wiped away pretty quick.
GlamGlow Supermud Mask
I love this mask! It’s a great mud mask. It comes with a hefty price tag, but it lasted quite a long time.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cream
I really liked this face cream. It was light and smelled nice, I just found that it didn’t last very long.
Laneige Foam Cleanser
I received this in an Influenster voxbox. It was really luxurious and smelled amazing.
I thought it was cool to track everything that I used in a year and will be doing the same thing throughout out 2017. I find it keeps me focused to use up what I have instead of always buying more stuff.
