beauty, empties


Time for another empties post!! I told you guys, I have been collecting the empties for awhile and didn’t realize how much I had!! There are some real gems in this bunch and the Clinique stuff I talk about is actually on sale at Nordstrom right now…as you will see if you follow the links. Yay! I love a sale.

Loreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream – This BB cream was alright. I don’t feel like there was anything special about it. I like this┬áRimmel one better and it is cheaper so I probably wouldn’t repurchase this one again.

Boscia Makeup Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil – Love love love this stuff!!! I cant sing enough praises about this and the Clinique one that is up next. If you are looking for a more natural option, go with this one.

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm – Again, love love love. This and the Boscia are neck and neck for the number one spot in my heart. They both work so wonderfully at taking off my makeup without irritating my face, turning it red, or drying it out. Again, you cant go wrong with either of these products. I will probably pick this one up next time they have a free gift with purchase from a department store and get the Boscia one from Sephora to collect my points. Gotta maximize your dollar, am I right? I know there are cheaper makeup removers out there, but none come close to these two products.

Caudalie Vinosource Creme Sorbet Hydrante – I really loved this stuff when I first got it. I was pregnant and looking for ingredients that weren’t going to harm Zoe. I used it all, but I will say that it wasn’t as moisturizing in the colder months for me which let me to my new love for the Clinique Moisture Surge Intense that I am sure you are tired of me talking about. I would consider picking this up again in the summer when I might not need as much moisturizer. This would be great for oily/combo skin.

Bare Minerals ID Glimmer Shadow in Bare Skin – I have kept this specific color and Nude Beach in my makeup collection since my college days. I just love how gorgeous this color is alone or with Nude Beach and the little bit of shimmer it gives. I really reach for this a lot in the summer months.

Covergirl The Super Sizer – This mascara was a decent option as far as drugstore brands go. I liked how spread apart the wand was, it helped grab those harder to reach lashes. Is it my favorite drug store one though? No. I have to say Loreal Voluminous probably is. That isn’t to say that I would never buy this again but it wouldn’t be my first choice.

Have you guys tried any of these? What are you loving?

    I like the Super Sizer mascara paired with the Loreal Telescopic (in the gold tube). One volumizes and the other lengthens so I don’t have to wear false lashes! #win

    I think I’m going to try the Boscia makeup remover the next time I’m in Sephora.. I love easy makeup removal at the end of long day!

    Yes! Loreal Voluminous is my absolute favorite mascara ever! I’m super picky about my mascara, and I’ve used this one forever!! Also, I’m intrigued by this shimmer shadow — I feel like it’d be perfect for the summers here!

    I love those kind of mascara brushes. They do seem to grip a little bit better. I need to write down the Loreal one though – I’m always on the hunt for good drug store mascara

    Good to know about the cover girl mascara, I did not love It either, just ok, but now I’m so intrigued about the L’Oreal voluptuous! I am intrigued by the shimmer shadow as well, do you think I would like it? Have a wonderful day!!

    I really need to start posting my own empties. I’ve been meaning to try the Boscia (and I have a sample of the Caudalie hanging around in my stash), so this is useful information oor me. Just so you know, if you really like the Clinique, Walmart has a dupe of it and a few other Clinique skincare products for a fraction of the cost over on their website, and you can get free delivery to the nearest store. I’ve actually got a jar of it sitting on my bathroom counter right now waiting to be tried out.

    Yesss, I used to love that boscia cleansing oil– the pump is so convenient! the BM shadow sounds so pretty!

    Love the Clinique cleansing balm! I love how it doesn’t irritate my eyes. I’m using the moisture surge right now, too. It’s great under makeup!

    I’ve never tried either of those cleansers, but you have me thinking that I definitely need to!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis March 22, 2017 at 8:36 pm

    I haven’t tried any of these products. The Boscia makeup remover sounds awesome though and the Bare Minerals eyeshadow. I’m the same way, when I find a color that works for me, I stick with it, mine being Dazzleilght from Mac which is a sheer/neutral color good for everyday use but I still want to check out those colors you recommended.

    I loved seeing what worked and what you’d skip for next time!! I love the Rimmel one better too.

    I’ve tried some Caudalie stuff. Not that though!
