Monthly Empties

September 2018 Empties

I’m a big believer in using the things that you have. Vast makeup/skincare collections filled with crap that gets used once or twice before it expires are upsetting and dark in a multitude of ways. This is my corner of the internet where I celebrate what I finished each month.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray used to be my absolute favorite thing in the world. I stopped buying it when I stopped wearing foundation and doing a full face every day, but this summer in New Orleans I thought I might as well give it a go again. I’m a little sad to say, but not really because fuck spending money on a god damn spray for your face, that it doesn’t hold up to that Louisiana humidity. I saw 0 difference between the days I wore it and the days I didn’t. Ooops.

Would I buy it again? I mean, I’m a moron so yeah. I’ll probably buy a mini bottle to use when I visit my family in the North East. Consumerism is my vice!

I bought It’s a 10 MIracle Leave In after working as a receptionist at a fancy barbershop where everyone recommended it. I used it in a multitude of ways. It did nothing for me.

Would I buy it again? No.

This isn’t the first time I’ve finished Glossier’s Hydrating Face Moisturizer. There’s plenty of other moisturizers I like more, but this baby does the job.

Would I buy it again? I mean, I only ever buy it when I’m buying something else from Glossier* and I’m also out of my daytime moisturizer. Yeah, I’ll probably buy it again.

Every few years I rebuy FAB’s Ultra Repair Cream, luckily this time I got it as a deluxe sample. It’s a great basic moisturizer, although it might break me out. For that price point, I say go with something else. It’s a drugstore moisturizer with fun branding.

Would I buy it again? Hopefully not!!!

Caudalie’s Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet has ingredients that are a little similar to resveratrol in it so every time I use it I think of Brooks and Vicki’s cancer scam on Real Housewives of OC. What more could one want from a moisturizer? In all seriousness, this has become my new go-to daytime moisturizer. It’s light as air and sinks it beautifully all while leaving my skin moisturized and glowing. Love you Caudalie.

Would I buy it again? Girl, I already started using my replacement.

Obviously, I got a Caudalie sample set, which is why I also finished their Premier Cru Eye Cream. Unfortunately, the eye cream was a major disappointment. I’m pretty sure it made my bags worse and did about 0% moisturizing (don’t worry, I apply eye cream the correct way, around my orbital bone and before I apply any serums).

Would I buy it again? No.

La Roche Posay’s Anthelios SPF 60 is my favorite drugstore sunscreen. Neogen’s Daylight sunscreen is my #1, but I always grab Anthelios when I’m in a pinch and need some sunscreen. It’s very light and watery but not drying. I have no issues with a white cast (I opt for the non tinted version), but I know that some people do. I also get an insane amount of rewards dollars every time I buy it at CVS. Get those coupons!

Would I buy it again? Forever and always.
