Empties #2 | Repurchase?


Yes, it really has taken me this long to accumulate enough empty products for a half decent post (my last empties post was way back at the beginning of March!) There would be more than this if I could get into the hoarder frame of mind more easily but unfortunately they ended up in the bin, must try harder! So this is what I've got through in the last few months...

I got this travel size hairspray in a Glossybox a while back and Tresemme are more often than not the hairspray I pick up anyway. It's got a good hold and doesn't leave you with crispy, sticky hair. The full sized cans also last for ages which makes them well worth what you pay for them
Repurchase? Definitely!

I have never been so sad to see a primer run out, I absolutely love this stuff! It gives you such a glowing complexion, I would have re-bought this the second it stopped pumping if I wasn't trying to kerb my spending ways and also waiting to try out the new Benefit primer. I have no doubt that we'll be reunited before the summer is out though!
Repurchase? Hell yeah, 100% will be buying this again at some point!

My name is Jade Hardy and I am a mascara hussy. I swap from brand to brand, thickening to lengthening and although I really liked this mascara I'm still on the hunt for the one that will make me stay faithful. This lengthened and separated but dried out so quickly and I didn't use it any differently than I do other mascaras that have lasted twice the time this one did.
Repurchase? I probably wouldn't repurchase the Star version of this again but Doll Eyes is definitely next on my list.

This was a nice fluid black eyeliner pen with staying power that I'd never seen in a product like this before but application proved quite difficult with patchiness and rubbing off the black if you drew over an existing line, it definitely wasn't effortless.
Repurchase? £19.00 is far too much for me to spend on an eyeliner pen seeing as I get through them like water. There's drugstore brands that do just as good a job (if not better) for a fraction of that price.

This product is an every day staple for me, it's so easy to dispense and apply. As soon as it's on my face my whole complexion is brightened. Late night, what late night?!
Repurchase? This wasn't my first and I'm already on my next!

The first time I tried this was when I took a travel size version to Ibiza with me last summer but I was disappointed and blamed it on the hot weather making my make up fall off my face at every opportunity but unfortunately when I got to try this again in the depths of winter I still felt the same, am I the only person who doesn't get along with this?! It's a nice enough mascara and I love the brush, the way it's shaped makes applying to bottom lashes a dream but I really wasn't wowed.
Repurchase? I wouldn't go out of my way to use this again, I'm still on the hunt for my holy grail mascara.

I had a few issues with this highlighting the tiniest bit of dry skin on my face and making it look a lot worse instead of covering it. I found the finish to be quite matte and the coverage was buildable. The scent was a little strong at first but nothing that you don't get used too and it could feel a bit suffocating on the skin at times but it was a very even coverage and soon disguised any blemishes or signs of uneven skintone.
Repurchase? I may well do in the future but I'll try a few other brands and types before I revisit.

    1. It really is a holy grail but I've heard that Loreal do a great dupe, I might give that a go when this has run out to save some pennies xx

    1. I know what you're saying, I've only ever got mine for Christmas or my Birthday and I did buy one myself at Duty Free when I had a few euros left last year, I've seen a few blog posts on about something very similar from Loreal but a much friendlier price, maybe give that a try? xx
