Runnin' On Empty

Thursday, 12 June 2014


Hey My Sweet Honeybee's

Have you ever noticed that you always seem to run out of almost every single product you own all at once?! Typical!



This very thing happened to me recently and I was going through all my empties, thinking 'would I buy this again?' and 'did I like this one?' .. So I thought I'd share with you, my thoughts on some of my recent empties!

Skincare
Skincare has become a bit of an obsession for me lately and some of mine have run out - time to replace them! I love searching the isles for new and exiting products, but sometimes you just cant beat your goold ol' favourite!


Overall Thoughts; I LOVE this! I have always been a fan of NIVEA products and this is no exception! I had never owned a night cream before and didn't really see what difference it could make, but it is so thick and luxurious that I wake up with super soft skin! I love the deep blue glass jar, it is heavy and expensive looking. This little treasure will only set you back £3.99 and it lasts ages! It has a very calming scent and lots of wonderful, natural ingredients.
Would I buy this Again?; Without a Doubt. For the price, you really cant beat it! I am shopping this weekend so I will definitely pick up a pot!


Overall thoughts; Toner is an essential in my skincare routine. I have tried a lot of them, and I have to say, this is not my favourite. It has a lovely scent and is refreshing, but I felt that it left my skin a little dry. It is alcohol free, which I love, and it is a cool blue colour, however I didn't like that it spilled out crazy fast when you tip i up for use! This product is a bargain at £2.99!
Would I buy this again?; Unfortunately, I probably wouldn't. There were more things that I liked about it than disliked, but I just don't like the way it made my skin feel dry.

Make-up
Y'all know me well enough by now to know I love my make up! I love nothing more than testing out new products and colours, but I'll always have my favourites that remain firmly in my make up bag!


Overall thoughts; This is the best brow pencil I have ever tried. It is perfect in every way - bargain price at £3. A good range of shades for each hair colour. Comes with a highlighter on one end AND it is retractable so it wont smash or break if you ravel with it! The only thing I dislike about this, is that it is so hard to find - since running out of this I have looked in 3 different Superdrugs and it's been all out of stock - but I suppose that's a testament to how great it is!
Would I buy this again?; No question! As soon as I see a Superdrug with them in stock I will be buying in multiple amounts haha! For now I am using the new collection Brow Palette (review coming soon!).


Overall Thoughts; This is a great foundation! I'm not so keen on the packaging, but at £5, who's complaining? I rarely use this foundation alone as I feel that the coverage isn't great (perhaps that's why they call it 'Undress your skin'?) but I find it absolutely perfect to mix with my other foundations to get my exact colour! It doesn't seem to oxidise and it isn't too thick either so it blends very well!
Would I buy this again?; Actually, I already have! It was on offer fr £3 in Superdrug so I had to pick up a tube!


Overall thoughts; This is a perfect all rounder! The price is great at just £2.99, the packaging is simple and protective and the product is great! This is the only loose powder I've tried that hasn't left me with an orange flush, it's wonderful! This comes with a small powder puff but I prefer not to use it as it can spread bacteria! When I use this my foundation stays in place for ages, I do have to re-apply around my chin in the afternoon but that is just because this area of my face can get oily!
Would I buy this again?; I have already re-purchased this! Its such a good price and I really feel like my make up isn't finished without it!



Overall Thoughts; Another Collection product here - can you tell I love budget beauty brands?! This is the ultimate liquid liner, it slicks on smoothly (no dragging!), lasts so long on the skin, doesn't flake or crumble and only costs £2.99! I really love the flexibility of the brush and the black is so intense!
Would I buy this again?; Again, I have already re-purchased this! I just cant do without it!

HeeerrrrCare!
I've recently become more and more interested in hair products, my hair is so long that it doesn't really stay in any style, but i have found a new fondness for trying out products, and I'm not about to stop now!


Overall thoughts; Wow, wow, wow! These products are just incredible <3 I'd use them every day if i could afford to - but at £17 for the shampoo and £19 for the conditioner they are a little out of my price range! My mum bought me these as a gift and I have never used anything quite like it! They smell so amazing, as if straight from a spa and they make my hair so big and voluminous! The conditioner includes rganic clay which fills out the hair follicles and makes hair appear thicker and more abundant! I just love it!
Would I buy this again?; For a special occasion, I definitely would! Nothing has worked so well on my hair as this and if i had shorter hair I would but it all the time as it would last a lot longer!

I always feel sad when I reach the end of a product, particularly if it is a favourite of mine, but then I remember that I now have a legitimate excuse to go out and try something new, or even just scour the shops for a few hours testing them out!

What products are you loving right now?
