September Beauty Empties

Selection of Empty Skincare Products

Today I have another round up of some empty beauty products, my last post was two months ago which I will link here. If you didn't know an 'empties' post is exactly what it sounds like, a post dedicated to products that have been used up, giving you a brief review and my opinion on whether or not I will be repurchasing. This month I have six products to talk about, some of which I may have spoken about before in previous blog posts (if so I will link these posts below)

Simple Micellar Water
I believe I have spoken about this product previously and while I don't generally have loyalty to one brand when buying micellar water, this is a good one. This costs £6.59 and contains 400ml of product, this is a decent price for how much product you get but I tend to wait till this is on a promotion to get it at an even better price. I love to use micellar water as a first cleanse to remove make-up before using a cream cleanser or alone on those lazy nights when I don't want to spend too much time on my skincare. This is a great product as it quickly and easily removes make-up whilst being very gentle on the skin and if like me you get a little lazy it's great as there's no need to rinse this product off. I can say for sure that this is something that I would repurchase as I already have although usually, I will pick up whichever one is on offer.

I love Liz Earle products and have a full review here, this particular cleanse and polish was a limited edition scent so it is no longer available but the product itself is just as good as the original. This is a lovely rich cleanser that melts down all your make-up so you can easily remove it with a muslin cloth, I love this because the muslin cloth provides gentle daily exfoliation. You can pick up different 'kits' on the Liz Earle website with/without muslin cloths and various bottle sizes depending on your budget or needs. This is another product that I have already repurchased been given as a gift in the original scent and packaging but if you wanted to get your hands on a limited edition bottle keep an eye on the website as these are usually released in the run-up to Christmas.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil

NYX Micro Brow Pencil 
I had this pencil in the shade Espresso which is a cool dark brown colour, it costs around £8 and is a twist up pencil. It has a fine tip that's great for detailed work on the brows, it has just the right amount of pigmentation and perfect consistency. I really enjoyed using this pencil and it was a great colour for me, I could really take the time to make my brows look perfected or quickly fill in gaps on more casual days. This is a product that I would definitely repurchase in the future, currently, I'm trying out a different pencil that I don't like as much as I enjoyed this NYX one.

I originally picked this up as I had heard so many good things from other bloggers/youtubers and I must say I don't regret it. This costs £8.99, contains 6.8ml of product and has an unusual sponge tip applicator. The packaging on the concealer is worn so I can't tell what shade I have been using. This concealer applies smoothly and blends easily, it is pigmented enough to cover dark circles and doesn't look dry or cakey. It wears well throughout the day and is a great all-around concealer for anyone on a budget. I've used up two of these now and will definitely repurchase.

Maybelline Mascara and Concealer

I love a budget mascara, high-street brands produce some really great quality ones which is perfect because mascara tends to dry out and should be replaced frequently for hygiene reasons. This mascara has a curved brush with small spiked bristles, the two different sides of the brush make it good for working the mascara into lashes even little hard to reach ones. When I first picked this up I wasn't in love with the formula as it was very wet but after a couple of weeks when it had dried out slightly the application was much better and I enjoyed using this product. This is a good black mascara that makes your lashes look pretty and holds up well throughout the day. I don't think I will repurchase this as I like the L'Oreal Lash Paradise better but it's definitely not a bad mascara.

Burts Bees Lipbalm

Burt's Bees Lipbalm
I am always putting on lip balm throughout the day, it's an absolute essential in my beauty collection. This Burt's Bees one costs £3.99 and contains beeswax, vitamin E, peppermint and is 100% natural. This was a good lip balm, it has a nice moisturising formula that stays put and doesn't feel waxy. This stopped my lips from drying out and getting chapped, it had that tingly minty feel that was nice and refreshing. There's not much more I can say about a lip balm other than this was good quality and I will probably be repurchasing this again to get me through the winter.

So there you have it, everything I've used up over the last two months, luckily these all worked well for me and most are products that I would repurchase.
