Empties - July 2013

I'm so excited to bring you something different for my empties post this month.  For the first time ever I've finished FOUR makeup products.  It's an awesome feeling that is made even better by being able to justify new purchases ha!

Here's what I used up this month...

Lux Body Wash - Secret Bliss
This is my second bottle of this and it is devine.  I stocked up with about 4 of these bottles when they were on sale recently so you'll see this product again.  It's lovely and hydrating and smells amazing!

Modelco Fibre Lashxtend Mascara
I received this mascara either in a magazine giveaway or a beauty box I can't quite remember.  All I know is that it does nothing for my eyelashes whatsoever and life's too short to have shitty lashes.  I've only used it once but it's going in the bin.

A'kin Replenishing Body Moist
From an Australian brand I'm very fond of, this moisturiser is unscented making it perfect to put on in the morning and not battle with your favourite perfume.  It's beautifully hydrating on my winter-dry limbs.

Radiessence in Light Tan
I've had this bronzer for waaay too long.  It's not too shimmery so I liked to use it as a contouring product.  Not re-purchasing as I have Benefit Hoola and it is a lot better than this product.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush
Sick of seeing these every month yet?  I use dry shampoo religiously and this is my favourite flavour.  Repurchased in bulk!

Napoleon Perdis Camera Finish Powder Foundation in Look 3
This is my holy grail powder.  Look 3 has a slight green/olive tinge to it which helps tone down the redness I can get on my cheeks.  This powder sets my foundation, gives a fairly good coverage and has this amazing knack of making my skin look almost perfect.  Repurchased already - can't go a day without this!

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream in Light
This BB Cream is by no means perfect but I really like it.  It gives my skin a light to medium coverage and provides a really healthy glow.  It also feels very hydrating on my normal to dry skin.  This product combined with my Napoleon Perdis powder is my current go-to base.

Clarins Cleansing Milk Alpine Herbs for Normal to Dry Skin
I'm a huge fan of Clarins products but to be honest while this cleanser is good it isn't great.  There are a lot of other cheaper cleansers that I prefer.  It does smell good and leave my skin feeling very soft afterwards but I wouldn't repurchase unless it came with a gift with purchase or was on sale. 

So there are the 8 products I managed to use up in July.  I love being able to finish up products mainly because it means I either get to go shopping or finally open some new products I've had stashed away.

Hope you've all had an amazing month - here's to an even better one.  Don't forget to enter my giveaway (link below) to win a prize pack of a few of my favourite things.  Theres less than a week left to get your entries in.

  1. That Napolean Perdis powder sounds brilliant. I'll look out for that one. I've bought the Batiste in Blush. I really enjoyed the little one that came in a recent bellabox, but it did get used up amazingly fast. I have a feeling it's going to be a new favourite for me too :D

  2. Was wondering what the Model Co Mascara was like I got on as a freebie on a magazine just haven't pulled it out of the stash to try. I'm not usually a fan of fibre extension ones.
