The Empties #4

I haven't done an empties post in a jolly long while (the mum/boy never did appreciate me stashing piles of empty bottles under the bed), but I've had quite a few products run out on me lately so thought it would be good to give you my thoughts on them before they finally hit the recycling...

STAPLES // The Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer will always run out & I will always replace it. Nothing comes close to this £4 bargain when it comes to coverage and staying power #enoughsaid. Skincare wise it's the Garnier Eye Makeup Remover that's made it onto my staples list. Being partial to the false lash look, I need something fairly heavy duty in the 'taking it all off' department and this tops the other dual phase removers on the market both in effectiveness and price.
REPURCHASES // Knock me down with a feather, I've finished a lip product! The Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in 'Peach on the Beach' is my go to easy one wash shade every spring & summer, so this season I had to buy another tube. A newcomer I will go back to is the Mark Hill MiracOILicious Treatment as nothing has left my hair feeling so soft and silky in a long time. The Elnett Precious Oil Hairspray also went down well with my barnet, keeping styles in place whilst offering some softening, conditioning properties.
DISAPPOINTMENTS // I'd previously gone through several tubes of the original La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo, so decided to test out the plus version. Whilst I love everything both editions claim to do, I still have yet to figure out if they actually do anything (have you seen results?!) so I think I'll save my pennies rather than repurchasing. Having just raved about how much I love the Garnier Eye Makeup Remover, the same can't be said for the Garnier Micellar Water sadly. It's not bad, just no match for big old Bioderma.

What have you used up lately?


  1. I've been using the garnier micellar water recently and it's definitely not my fave - I prefer Bioderma x

  2. I've just used up my Collection concealer as well, always a repurchase !

  3. I will repurchase the Collection concealer over and over again! The Bourjois lip crayon looks really pretty as well, I can't believe I haven't took much notice to it before!

  4. I haven't seen ANY results with the Effaclar Duo despite raves on YouTube a while ago. So I'll be giving it a pass as well xx

  6. I have never used bioderma so the Garnier version is something that I love to used. I tend to wash my face with a cleanser then use it with a large cotton pad just to get rid of any dirt left on my skin.

  7. Well said about the collection concealer, it's a repurchase every time! Elle x

  8. I'm a big fan of the Garnier make-up remover but like you am not a fan of the micellar water!

  9. ooo these products look great, I love the look of the lip pencil xx

  10. Well done for using up makeup! Most of my empties are skincare and bath products xx
