March Empties

Another edition of what's gracing my rubbish bin this month featuring FOUR makeup products.  If you know me even a little bit you'll know this is huge progress ;)

Batiste Dry Shampoo
Love these dry shampoos but not so much this 'original' scent.  Doesn't really smell like anything - I prefer the Blush or Tropical scents best but I find they all do the same great job.

Dove Deodorant - Clear Touch
Always use this one - great for no white marks (most of the time) and keeps me dry all day without an over-powering scent.

David Jones Cream Foundation - Fair
.  I really liked this foundation.  Gave a really nice finish with buildable coverage.
Full review here.

MUA Professional Eyes Primer
Chucking as it doesn't work at all.  In fact when I use this my eyeshadow creases long before it would have if I had applied nothing at all.

Elizabeth Arden All Gone Eye & Lip Remover
A great oil/water duo makeup remover.

Garnier Intensive Repair Lotion for Extra-Dry Skin
I love this body moisturiser.  Leaves my skin really soft and hydrated.

Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray
I've had this for ages and hardly used it because I just didn't get the hype.  I finally started using it again as a spritz over my foundation and was really enjoying it.  It's really refreshing and leaves my skin with a soft dewy finish.  Not sure if it makes my makeup last longer as I don't tend to have too much problem with that but it does make my face look ten times better if I've accidentally over-powdered.  

Urban Rituelle Purse Spray - Cotton Candy
My goodness this scent is divine.  Anytime I wear this I get so many comments.  I keep this in my bag for when I need a touch-up of perfume during the day.  I repurchased this before it ran out because I couldn't bear to be without it.  I also got a candle in the same scent.  Best. Scent. Ever.

Kevin Murphy Anti-Gravity Spray
This is a great volumizing spray that doesn't weigh down my hair or leave any residue on my roots.  I spray this lavender-scented product into my hair when it's wet, comb through and then blow dry.  Cue bouncy hair :)

Maybelline Full n Soft & Falsies Mascara
I didn't much like the Falsies mascara so I'm chucking it before it's even finished.  The Full n Soft however has been one of my favourites for years and was one of the first mascaras I ever owned as a black eyeliner wearing 14 year old.  Finished it and repurchased, in the waterproof version this time.

Are you good at finishing up products or are you like me and keep a stash of half-empty products around forever?
