First Beauty Empties of 2016

The first empties post of 2016, how exciting! Now I would be lying to you if I told you that I used all these up in 2016, but I finished the majority of these in 2015. Regardless, lets dive into the products I’ve used up and whether I’ll be repurchasing them again.

I got this product in a goodie bag from an event Shelby and I attended and I must say I really enjoyed it. The formula was light and creamy, easy to blend and gave me the perfect amount of brightness I could ask for in a concealer. However, I also own plenty of other concealers that do just as good of job at a fraction of the price. Retailing at $50 CAD, this stuff is really nice but not a must-have for me.

EOS Lip Balm in “Sweet Mint”

These are probably my favourite lip balms so it’s no surprise I have one of these in my empties. They smell amazing, moisturize my lips and the packaging is adorable. What more could you want in a lip balm? I currently have about 4 different other flavours on the go!

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Setting Spray

I have been using the Urban Decay setting sprays for a while now and I still love them. They keep my makeup lasting all day and feel so refreshing to apply. I also love the mist it produces compared to some other products where it feels like you’ve splashed your face with a bucket of the stuff. I currently have some more of this on it’s way from Sephora!

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in 103 “Natural Buff”

If you’ve seen our makeup looks over the past few months you will know this foundation is one of Shelby and I’s favourites. It provides great coverage and it applies so smooth and even. While we both tend to have dry skin we find applying a hydrating primer before hand keeps it from looking too dry. You know I already repurchased this the minute I realized I was running low, and who doesn’t love an affordable drugstore foundation that works wonders.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

I’ve done a review of why I love this mascara here and again, if you’ve seen most of my makeup looks you will know how frequently I use this. Again it’s a drugstore price for high end quality, you can’t go wrong!

The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Sink  In Moisture Mask

I’ve mentioned this stuff about a bajillion times on here but I seriously can’t get enough of it. I have gone trough so many tubs of this stuff so here it is in my empties… again. It even made its way into my Favourite Beauty Picks of 2015 and it’s not going anywhere any time soon. This will be something I will be repurchasing for a while!

What beauty products have you used up recently? Let me know in the comments!




  1. I just used up my Maybelline instant age rewind concealer which is so sad. I’m using a backup Rimmel one right now but it’s just not as good 😦

  2. I love The Body Shop products! Especially Vitamin E line because I adore the scent. What are your favourite series from The Body Shop? I talk a lot about TBS products in my blog so you might want to check it out 😊👌
