Wednesday Reviews : Empty Products #1

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday to you all.  If you're anything like me, you love to finish up products.  It's so satisfying to completely use up something, and then be able to try new things!  I love seeing reviews on YouTube of empty products.  Once you use up something, you can really tell if you actually like the product or not, so those reviews are really helpful.

Today I'll be sharing short reviews of products I used up recently.  This is going to be a series (probably once a month or every other month) so you can see what I use up regularly!  I hope that you enjoy!

Face/Body Products

 
1. Tree Hut Shea Moisturizing Body Lotion in Brazilian Nut.  
My all-time favorite lotion.  It's extremely moisturizing and smells AMAZING.  I've probably gone through 5 tubes of this and will keep buying it.
2.  Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads.
These pads made my skin feel really smooth and clean, but it didn't really exfoliate or help my skin in the long run.  I've switched over to a chemical exfoliant and it seems to work much better.
3.  Urban Decay B6 Complexion Prep Spray x 2 (sample size)
I loved this spray!  I don't know what's in it, but it made my skin smoother and less red before I added any other products.  I think I may pick this up in the regular size!
4.  La Roche-Posay Mela-D Deep Cleansing Brightening  Foaming Cream (sample size)
I also tried a sample of this and took it with me whenever I traveled.  It always made my skin feel really tight when I used it, so I wouldn't purchase a full-size container!

 Hair

1. Loreal Ever Creme Shampoo.
I love this shampoo and always get it in winter.  It makes my hair really soft and smells like vanilla/caramel candy!
2. Batiste Dry Shampoo in Dark + Deep Brown.
This is my favorite dry shampoo and I wear it about every other day.  I try to only wash my hair every 2 or 3 days, and this keeps it looking fresh and not limp.  This one blends in with my brown hair perfectly, so I love taking it to the gym if I work out in the morning and don't have time to wash my hair.
3.  Batiste Dry Shampoo in Fresh.
This dry shampoo is alright, but it does leave my roots a bit white if I'm not careful.  It's not as quick and easy as the one above, but it will do in a pinch.  I only buy a different dry shampoo if the brown one is out of stock!  The scent on this one definitely is fresh and makes me feel much cleaner (and probably smell better!)

Makeup

1. NYX Retractable Liner in brown
Love this liner!  It didn't dry out at all and always went on smoothly.  No complaints here!
2. L'Oreal Butterfly Intenza Mascara
This was an ok mascara.  I really liked the original Butterfly mascara, but wasn't as impressed with this version.  It clumped up my lashes and I had to comb through them every time I wore it.  It did seem to work better when it dried up a bit, though!
3. L'Oreal True Match Lumi foundation
Love this foundation.  It looked beautiful on and I loved the pump.  I also tried the original true match and HATED it, but this one worked really well.
4. L'Oreal True Match Concealer
Great concealer.  Loved the brush tip applicator and it covered everything really well!
5. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in Brightener
My favorite undereye concealer.  I already have a new one ready to go!
6. L'Oreal Magic Lumi Concealer
I love how this looked under my eyes, as well as down my nose and on my cupid's bow.  My only problem was that I went through it REALLY quickly, so it's not worth the money to me.
7. Chapstick Total Hydration in Sweet Peach
I got this in a box (I think a Target beauty box?) and used it every day.  It's actually a clear balm, even though it looks like it would be peach.  It smelled great and hydrated my lips really well.

    1. Seriously!! It's always my most expensive products that run out at once. Not fair.
