Beauty Empties/Things I'm Getting Rid Of - October 2018

Selection of make-up and skincare products

It's been a little while since I did an empties post but this time I'm mixing it up a tiny bit by also including items that I'm choosing to get rid of for one reason or another. I've been making an attempt to live a more minimalist lifestyle and part of that is getting rid of things that I don't really use or love so today's post is going to be a mix of things I've used up with my opinions on it and whether or not I'd repurchase it again in the future and the reasons why I'm choosing to get rid of other items.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
I've actually already given this palette away to a family member that I thought would appreciate it more than myself. I know that so many people love the Naked palettes but I just never fell in love with mines, It's not a bad palette but I just never used it. I never really felt like a lot of the shades suited me and it ended up sitting in a drawer being unloved, I refused to get rid of it for a while because I had spent a fair bit of money on it but finally we have parted ways. I have a full review here if you would like to read some more in-depth thoughts about the palette.

Essence Volume Stylist Lash Extension Mascara

Essence Volume Stylist Lash Extension Mascara
This mascara costs a mere £3.00 which is a total bargain, I'm throwing it out because it's dried up quite a bit and probably no longer safe to use around the eyes. I do think this mascara dried up a little faster than a lot of other mascaras I've used but considering the price I don't mind at all. It has a nice slim wand that allows you to really get close to the base of the lashes and lift them up, I really enjoyed the look it gave and I would repurchase it again in the future, the only complaint I have is that it was quite stubborn to remove at the end of the day. For more information check out my full review here.

Superdrug B. Serum

B. Nourished Advanced Serum
This was the first serum I had ever tried from the Superdrug brand B. (I have a different one also included in this post) and I must say I really loved it. It had a lovely thin silky consistency which does what it says on the tin and nourished the skin. The brand gives each product a skin phase number which determines the age group it's recommended for, this serum is Skin Phase 4 which is aimed at those in their late 50s (I'm just turning 27) but I don't think you need to pay to much attention to the numbers, I want all those anti-ageing ingredients now because prevention is better than cure as they say! I have a full review of this particular product if you would like to find out more which I will link here.

Superdrug B. Serum

B. Restored Peptide Rich Elixer
After I used up the first serum that I've just spoken about from B. I decided I wanted to pick it up again but I accidentally got this one instead which is the Peptide Rich Elixer (Skin Phase 4) which is for those in their late 40s. This was another really lovely serum which I used morning and night, and it kept my skin looking soft and hydrated. Both serums are reasonably priced but you can almost always pick them up on some sort of deal at Superdrug to bring that cost down, I do feel like I go through these pretty quickly but that could be due to using them both morning and night. I would repurchase both serums in the future but I think I prefer the Advanced Serum which I'm actually planning on repurchasing in the next few days.

Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer

Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer
This is one of those products that had so much hype about it that I couldn't resist picking it up but unfortunately, I didn't end up loving it and so it's sat in my collection gathering dust. Don't get me wrong you don't get a lot of product inside so it's pretty much all used up so it wasn't so bad that I never used it, I just found that it made my under eyes look very dry and it creased on me a fair amount. I've looked back at my initial review and at the time I did like it and said I would repurchase it again in the future but my opinions have changed a bit since then and now I'm not sure if I would repurchase it again, I may need to pick it up one more time to form a final opinion.

So that's all my empties for the month of October!
What have you been using, loving and dumping this month?
