The Empties

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

I watch several "empties" videos on YouTube and also love reading the blog posts with the same title. I think that it is such a great way to hear someones full review since they have finished or nearly finished the entire product!

Firstly I finally finished up the Smashbox Photo Finish Light Primer, as you can see it's in a plastic bottle with a pump which I personally prefer more then the new packaging that is in the tube. I really did enjoy this primer - it made my foundation stay on longer, make my skin appear more matte, and generally just really smoothed out my skin which made it a perfect blank canvas for my makeup. I would repurchase this primer, but I'm currently looking for a new one that can keep me looking shine free for longer. Do you have any recommendations?

I finished up another primer recently which is the famous Benefit Pore-fessional primer. I wasn't the biggest fan of this and I probably won't be repurchasing. I didn't really notice much of a difference. I don't have the biggest pores so I wasn't using it to specifically cover my pores...but I just found it really didn't even make my makeup last that much longer then without it! So for me, this will not be coming back to my makeup collection.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua oh my. I have such a strong love for this foundation and I saved the last few applications for special reasons (date night, Christmas, and of course another date with Ryan). I am so glad that my mom wasn't big on the use of foundation because that now means that I have hers! I wore the shade BR10 and it was such a perfect match, although when I repurchase I will just be going for B10 as I think it was a tad too pink for me. My mom wears B30 which has now been passed down to me and it is my exact shade after summer. So, perfect! I will be repurchasing my fall/winter shade as I really do love this beautiful light-medium coverage foundation that leaves a stunning glow to your skin while being matte in all the right places. Confusing? I recommend picking this up for yourself to see what I mean!

MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow - If you watch my makeup videos on YouTube then you will know how obsessed I am with this shadow! I already repurchased the pan version that is now in my eyeshadow collection which I have done a post on here. It is the perfect brow bone shade that I also use all over my lid to start my shadows off with a blank canvas (which I use primer for on my face). If you own the Naked 3 palette it is very very similar to the lightest shade Strange. As I said, I already have repurchased and probably forever will!

Smashbox Halo Yellow Colour Correcting Powder - I was so so sad when I finally admitted to myself that it really is empty and I can't "grind" up anymore product as I do think it has been discontinued. I can't seem to find it online anywhere - but I'll keep searching! As it is a yellow powder it colour corrects any redness on your face you may have. I find it covered my red cheeks and blemishes so well. I really wish I could repurchase this powder - so if you know any good yellow powders do let me know!

Those are some of my current empty products!
