EMPTIES: Makeup/Skincare I’ve Used Up

Empties are makeup/skincare I’ve used completely or have expired. Let’s take a quick look at my trash to get the dirty after finishing an entire product!


  1. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencil (Whiskey/Zero)

1st pencil is Whiskey/Zero Shade

Pass: smudges and yet impossible to remove (wtf)

2. e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator (Brown Sugar)

Pass: tastes/smells like eating very fake vanilla wax (gag)
Tip: simply scrub your wet toothbrush over lips to exfoliate!

3. Covergirl Outlast Lip color with Topcoat (Brazen Raisin)

Purchase: fantastic comfortable long-lasting, non-transfer, opaque liquid lipstick with a glossy finish

4. Laneige Firming Sleeping Mask

Pass: fairly certain it’s discontinued for good reason; broke me out to the point where I couldn’t finish the product. (As soon as I narrowed down the suspect & it was removed from my regimen; my skin cleared up within a couple days!)

5&6. L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara (waterproof & non)

Pass: it clumped without giving much length or volume. (Lash Paradise? I don’t think so.)

7. Jordana Cat Eye Liner (01 Black Leather)

Pass: cheap brush tip liner with nothing special (not pigmented or long lasting or easy to use) additional photos in review

8. Everyday Coconut: Coconut Water Toner

9. L’Oreal Liquid Pencil Eyeliner (Black)

Pass: slim smudge/transferable kohl liner (not my cup of tea)

10. e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer

Pass: the dupe is better! (Check the review for details).

11. Maybelline Color Sensational (Sugared Almond)


Discontinued: please leave a comment about a DUPE! (I used it until there was nothing to it anymore…*forlorn sigh* the BEST MyLipsButBetter.)


(The toner is my semi-new repurchased bottle!)
