Emptied in August

Clarins Eau des Jardins Uplifting Shower Gel
Will be posting a full review on this as I adored it, smells amazing and is PH balanced.
Priceline Round Cotton Pads
You constantly see these in my empties, because I use them for everything! Bioderma, toner, folded in half to fix eye liner. You name it!
Dermaveen Oatmeal Conditioner
The matching shampoo was featured in my last empties, and this isn't much better. Doesn't give my hair enough moisture, but I've used worse conditioners in the past.
Boots shave cream
This is so old the can has rusted, I found it at the back of my cabinet and was repulsed. This is not empty, but a chucker.
Sunsilk Colour Lock Shampoo
A grotty sample that I don't want to put near my head, this is also a chucker.
Shu Uemura Skin Purifying Cleansing Oil
I felt that this took my makeup off well, but did leave a bit of an oily residue. I didn't dislike it, but I can't decide if I like it enough to buy it in the future.
Rimmel Match Perfection Cream Gel Foundation
I really enjoyed this, it really does feel like a cross between a cream and a gel. I found that it sets really quickly so you have to blend each section of your face separately to avoid it feeling mask like. The finish it gives is like real skin, but without major flaws, and I liked wearing this to work or out to lunch on Sundays.
Lancome Tresor Midnight in Love
I love fragrance samples, and this sweet blackberry vial was lovely. It was uber sweet so I tended to wear it at night, but I can see myself buying a full bottle of this.
Australis Lash Length Extension mascara
Reviewed here, I really enjoyed using this fibre mascara and loved how easy it was to remove. In the end up it became very clumpy (in a soft, fibre-y way) but it lasted well past it's proper 'expiry' date (yes, I kept using it because I'm cheeky) Would repurchase. 
 Face of Australia Face Base Primer
I already have another tube of this on the go, it is my favourite moisturising base and it lets my foundation glide on a lot easier. I use this daily and find it helps my colour cosmetics last a little bit longer, but it's more for application help than anything. Have and would repurchase.

What did you use up this month?
What mascara and primer are you using right now?


  1. Great going with those empties, with a few makeup items in there too! The rusted can made me laugh - it's amazing what you'll find lurking in the back of the drawer or cupboard!

  2. Nice empties! Especially the foundation! Kudos to you!
    That Clarins Shower gel sounds lovely!

  3. Ooh, I haven't really heard anything about that Rimmel foundation but you make it sound really good! I'm on the hunt for a new mascara, and I use the FOA primer as well. It's brill :) xx

  4. The Rimmel foundation sounds interesting, but I get stressed when products dry quickly and there's not much time to blend. Don't like the prospect of stuffing up and having to start all over again! Midnight in Love sounds beautiful!

  5. I love that FOA primer, mine is nearly finished! I'm also really interested in trying out the Australis mascara, it's right up the top of my 'things to buy after project 50 pan' list!

  6. I love those damn PL cotton pads, always stock up when on special. I love my shu uemura cleansing oil and am on my 5th full size container. The trick is to use it for double cleansing - apply on dry skin, rub in then lather with wet hands. Rinse off so it takes off all your make-up, then follow with your normal cleanser. I use it instead of eye make-up removers too all the time.

  7. Agreed about the Rimmel foundation - it sets so quickly! The shade I have is a touch too dark for me but I like the fuller coverage that it gives on the days that I do choose to wear it (which isn't often, but only because I prefer glowier liquid foundations). It also feels quite cooling on the skin.

  8. wow, well done, that is a lot of empties!
