Empties #1

I never keep a track of what I use and if I liked it or not so I thought I should start an empties series so I can share with you guys what I thought of some of the products that I have used up.

First up is Essence I ♥ Extreme mascara (I did a review on this here). I really like this mascara and it was great for the price but it did dry up a bit too soon. Will I repurchase it? Yup!
Next we have another mascara, Rimmel's Scandaleyes which I didn't realise that I still had. I hardly used this mascara mainly because I hated it so much. The consistency was too wet for my likings and the brush was huge. I'm surprised that some people actually liked this mascara but eh what can I say, each to their own. Will I repurchase it? Hell no!
I was going through my foundations and I found this little guy - Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation.  I don't think I used this foundation enough, not because I didn't like it but because it was a bit too dark for me. I bought this during the winter but now I think the shade would have matched me quite well as I'm a bit tanned. I gave this to my sister and she seemed to have enjoyed it and definitely recommends it. Will I repurchase it? Maybe...
This perfume, Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire, is the love of my life! That's a bit over dramatic I know! ^.^ But I really just love the smell of this. It's one of those scents that you that you keep on wanting to sniff. I was nearly in tears when I finished this but luckily I already have a back up of this. The scent is very strong and mysterious. I think I'll bust out this perfume again after summer because I think I need something lighter in the summer. The bottle's so pretty I don't want to throw it away (>.<) Will I repurchase it? Yes, yes...did I mention YES! 
Last thing is Topshop Magic Liner, which I bought because of reviews I read online. The reviews I read all seemed to LOVE this so naturally I was expecting a miracle product. I did really like this when I first got it but after a while it just seemed like a normal eyeliner pen. It's not completely dried out but the lines it makes are not as black and smooth as it used to be so I have no use for this anymore. Will I repurchase it? Probably not because I want to explore different brand eyeliner pens.

What have you recently finished using?

Drawing Essiebutton

So yesterday I felt a bit creative and decided to draw one of my favourite youtuber and blogger Essiebutton aka Estée. I decided to challenge myself and only use my makeup to draw(..and a pencil and a bit of tipex). This was the first time I have ever drawn like this and it was so much fun. It's not as gorgeous as the real Estée but I'm quite pleased with how it came out, considering it was my first time.
Maybelline Gel Eyeliner
Sleek Ultra Matte Vs 2 palette

Revlon ColourBurst Lacquer in Enticing

 Sleek Face Form palette
Natutal Collection Blush in Pink Clouds
MUA Highlighter

So what do you think of drawing with makeup?

Boots Haul

Ahh...Boots it's one of those places that you can never resist popping in when you see one. Here is what I have picked up this last week or so. 

I have previously reviewed L'oreal Paris GlamShine Stain Splash in the colour Princess before, which I really adored so I was eager to try some more shade. I originally wanted to get only one but eh what can I say?...I blame the 3 for 2 offer. I got the shades Lolita (a nude shade), Romy (a rosy shade) and Eve (a cool-tone pink with a hint of purple). I was just searching this afternoon and I realised that there is this shade called Milady which looks absolutely lovely. It looks like a perfect Autumn/Winter colour. So that is definitely on my to-buy list. I also picked up L'oreal La Touche Magique True Match Concealer mainly because it's handy to have these kind of twisty concealer pens here and there. 

I have been a bit lip obsessed recently hence I have been wearing a lot more lip products and buying a lot more. I have heard some positive reviews about Natural Collection's Moisture Shine Lipsticks so I thought why not give it a go. I got the shades Raspberry, Cranberry and Crimson. My favourite shade so far is Raspberry. I'm not sure why they called these "Moisture Shine" because they are not really moisturising. I really don't like the packaging, it's just so plain, and it doesn't feel secure but the product itself is lovely.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who can't commit to just one face wash. I need to have at least 3 to choose from because my skin doesn't feel the same everyday so I choose the type of face wash according to how I feel. I must admit I mainly bought this because it said charcoal on it. I've only used this once it is quite different to how I thought it will be. I'll keep you updated on it when I make up my mind on this. The last thing I bought was Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo The Sleek Restorer. My hair is really dry and frizzy so I thought this may help with that. This smells AMAZING! Coconut oil and Cocoa Butter what a great mix. If you like Mocha Coconut Frappuccino from Starbucks then you'll like this too.

What have you been buying recently?
