Empties #2

I haven’t done an empties post in so long (mainly because I forget to save the empty bottles). It’s finally time to do another one, so here is a selection of products I have used up, and my thoughts on them.

Too Faced | Hangover 3 in 1 Setting Spray

I feel like I need to stop talking about this for a while, as it seems to be popping up all over the place. In all fairness I love it. I got it in September, and it ran out in December. That might not be very long, but I do overuse it. You can use this for priming, setting and refreshing, and the Coconut water aspect makes it especially refreshing. This has been great for my dry skin, but it’s not so great if you like a matte finish. I have a full review on this, if you’d like to read more.

Repurchase? Already have!

Rimmel | Lasting Finish Foundation SPF 20

This was my go to foundation in Summer last year, and I used it pretty much everyday. I love full coverage foundation, but my dry skin doesn’t. This foundation contains comfort serum, so it isn’t drying at all; which is a huge bonus. It comes with a pump which is a huge bonus. The shade range isn’t the best, as there are only seven shades to pick from. If you want to find out more, you can read my review.

Repurchase? I haven’t, but I really need to! 

L’Oréal | Paradise Mascara

When I first used this mascara I wasn’t much for it, but after a little while it becomes much better. It’s like it has to dry out a little before you use it. This mascara doesn’t clump, and it lengthens the lashes too. I apply two/ three coats of this to get the amount that I like, as I have short straight lashes. The brush is very similar to the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, so if you’re after a budget friendly one, then this is one to look at.

Repurchase? Yes!

Soap and Glory | Thick and Fast Mascara

I got this for Christmas in a set in 2016. Even though it’s been empty for a while it’s been sat in my mascara tub at the bottom of the pile for a while. (For some unknown reason). I wouldn’t say I’m blown away with this, and it’s definitely not my favourite mascara, but it isn’t the worst. It’s great at lengthening the lashes, but it does transfer throughout the day. I have another one of these that I got in a 2017 set, that I still use occasionally.

Repurchase? No. It’s good, but the transfer is annoying.

TonyMoly | Magic Food Banana Sleeping Mask

If there’s something I talk about a lot on this blog, it’s this night mask. It has well and truly earned it’s place on my favourites page. I got this in December last year, and it ran out in late June of this year. I don’t want to go into too much detail here, as I have done a full review on it, so going over it all again, doesn’t seem to make much sense. After using this, my skin feels instantly hydrated and feels a lot better in the morning. Plus if you like the smell of bananas then this is for you!

Repurchase?: Definitely

Revolution | Conceal & Define Concealer

I’ve never spoke about this concealer on my blog before, but it’s been well and truly loved. There was a lot of hype around this when it was first released, as it’s supposed to be a dupe for the trusty Tarte Shape Tape. I have the shade C1, and I find that isn’t quite pale enough, so I’ll probably try the newer lighter shade of C0.5 next time. With concealers I always set them with powder, as this makes sure it won’t crease. This is the kind of concealer that needs to be set, so that’s something to keep in mind. I wouldn’t call this full coverage, but more medium with a matte finish. There are 25 shades to pick from and it costs £4

Repurchase?: Once I’ve got through some of my other concealers

Too Faced | Born This Way Foundation

This has been on my wish list for absolutely ages, and I’m gutted I didn’t try it sooner. It’s pretty much everything I’ve been looking for in a foundation. The only downside is the price, and I’ve gotten through the bottle pretty quickly. The added coconut water is amazing for hydration, which is exactly what my skin needs. I love the finish this gives, as you’re left with a really subtle glow that seems really natural, but you get amazing medium full coverage depending on how much you’ve applied.

Repurchase?: Definitely!

Pixi | Glow Tonic

I first mentioned this in my Night time skin care routine from December, and I have been using it ever since. Pretty much everyone raves about this, and it’s clear to see why. At first I thought £18 was a bit steep for a toner, but for the results it’s pretty worth it. I’ve really notice an improvement with my skin, as it’s smoother and has more of a glow to it than usual. I hated the scent at first, but after continued use, I got used to it, and for the past couple of months I’ve not even noticed it.

Repurchase?: Maybe in the future, but I want to try other Toners first

The Body Shop | Coconut Body Milk

Since I’ve recently done a full review on this, I won’t go in to too much detail here. This is a very lightweight moisturiser, which absorbs quickly, so you aren’t left feeling sticky. It smells amazing, and the scent does linger for a little while which is good. For £8.50 this has lasted me a long time, considering it’s best to be used daily.

Repurchase?: Definitely!

That is all for now!

What have you used up lately?

Thank you for reading!

  1. Great list of empties. My Conceal and Define emptied really quickly. I have both C1 and C 0.5 and if I want brightening I need the lighter version. I love this concealer too. The Rimmel foundation use to be a favorite but I haven’t used it in awhile.

    I love this round-up of empties, the Revolution Conceal and Define is also a favourite concealer of mine but I do agree that it is more medium coverage than full coverage!

    My gosh I love the packaging of the banana mask, I must admit I’m really a bit too drawn in by packaging. And I personally love the thick and fast mascara as I find it’s one that doesn’t clump on my lids but still gives a good amount of volume

      It’s so cute isn’t it haha?! Don’t worry you aren’t the only one, but it’s alright as it works really well too! Really? I really suffered with transfer, when I used it- maybe I’ll have to rethink that one!xx

  4. Kara says:

    I loved this empties post! That coconut body milk is going on my list of products to try. I’ve never seen anything like it but it sounds like it will be great. I’ve used the Pixi toner before and really liked it. I also might try the Two Faced setting spray since in this summer heat my makeup doesn’t stay on all day. Thank you for the recommendations! x

      Thank you so much! It’s an amazing lightweight moisturiser, and it smells amazing too- I hope you like it! It’s a fab toner, isn’t it? Yeah mists like this are great for Summer, as they’re very refreshing xx

  5. Tiffany says:

    I love the Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation! I always repurchase it as it works so well for my skin. Love an empties post, I’ve never done one as I always forget to keep the empty bottles! x

    The Body Shop does some amazing products, and I personally love the Coconut range as well. I’m yet to pick up the Conceal and Define Concealer but every post I read mentioning makes me want to pick it up even more! x Nikita

    omg so many great products !! love ur blog


  8. Caroline says:

    Every time I tried to pick up the revolution concealer they didn’t have my shade as it was sold out, it’s definitely a sign of a good concealer! I’ve heard so many good things about the coverage but also loads of people talking about it creasing so definitely think you’re right with needing something to set it! This post has also reminded me that I need to pick up my Pixi glow tonic again, I’ve not had it in my routine for ages! xx


    • luxuryblush says:

      That’s so true, and it’s been so hard to get ahold of! Yeah, it definitely needs setting into place. The Pixi Glow Tonic is a fab toner, and I hope you love it again, if you pick it up xx

  9. Naya says:

    These are all such nice products! I need to try that L’oreal mascara. I have to agree, I also love it when my mascara gets just a touch drier; especially if it was a bit too wet to begin with. Have you tried the new Too Faced concealer? They say it is a Shape Tape dupe, so I am curious xx


    • luxuryblush says:

      Thank you, I’m glad you think so! It’s fab, and one a lot of people seem to love. Yes sometimes they work so much better when they dry out a little bit. I haven’t, but I’ve heard the same!xx

  10. Annie says:

    I really wanna try the Rimmel foundation. Anything that has moisturizing things in it and works good for dry skin type I already love! Also I’m super lucky because my skin shade isn’t that hard to pick and pretty much every foundation range, no matter how big or small has my shade or something very very similar! <3


  11. Annie says:

    Really wanna try that Rimmel foundation. Hopefully my dry skin will love it <3


  12. Elizabeth Seal says:

    Oooh so many lovely things! I really love the Born this Way foundation, I tried a sample and adored it, I wish I could afford it in full size 😀 I would love to try the Too Faced setting spray too, their products are gorgeous! xx

    I love reading these and need to write one of these posts asap, it sounds like you’ve used up some fabulous products. I love the sound of the banana sleeping mask and it has lasted a great amount of time too. The Glow Tonic is a product I’ve been meaning to try for the longest time. xxx

    • luxuryblush says:

      Empties make an interesting read for sure! Thank you, the mask is really great the packaging is unique and the mask really works. I’ve been loving it, it really helped my skin xxx

  14. Glow tonic really is pretty amazing i cant get over how such a small percentage can a big difference in how your skin looks nothing beats glycolic in my eyes!


  15. Radi says:

    I really want to try the Too Faced foundation! And ohh that banana mask, so good for the skin!


  16. Emmy says:

    The Too Faced Foundation is one of my favourites, it leaves such a pretty finish! If you love that one you will love their new peaches and cream foundation it looks stunning on the skin. The Tony Moly Mask sounds so good!


  17. Narhee says:

    Great empties and products! The banana mask sounds fun

    I’ve been meaning to try the Rimmel foundation but have not done it yet… And I thought the same about the Lash Paradise mascara. At first I didn’t love it, but I do really like the glam effect it gives!

  21. Rachael Stray says:

    I am in my first tube of the paradise mascara and it is a really good dupe for the Better than Sex mascara. I really like it.

  22. Jess says:

    I’ve never done an empties post because I always forget to keep the products or I have so many products I never actually finish anything! I love my conceal and define and I repurchased another two when mine ran out to make sure I never have to go without again! I really want to try that Pixi Glow Tonic it sounds fab!

    • luxuryblush says:

      Remembering to save the empty pots is the hardest part haha! That’s true, it’s something I’m struggling with too. The conceal and define is so good! Don’t blame you for rushing out and stocking up. It’s such a great toner xx

  23. So many great empties. I’m a huge fan of Pixi Glow tonic and the Rimmel Lasting finish. I really want to try the Loreal mascara and Makeup Rev concealer so I’m glad to read you would repurchase! xx

    • luxuryblush says:

      Thank you! It’s a great toner, and such a good foundation too. They’re both really great, and definitely worth the hype. It’s just a shame that the concealer doesn’t last very long xx

  24. PerlaGiselle says:

    I’m all about using inexpensive makeup, so I’m glad you have a mix of drugstore and high quality brands on this list. I really love revolution makeup products and was considering trying out the concealer. Also, the Too Faced Setting spray looks like something that I might like. I will definitely try that one out!! Thank you and happy Monday!

    • luxuryblush says:

      Yes, I like using a mix too, it’s nice to talk about a range of prices. Revolution have so many amazing products, and it’s amazing how they keep it all so cheap. The setting spray is fab, and I hope you like it too! Thank you for stopping by xx

  25. Melina Elisa says:

    I’m so happy to hear that you love the hangover setting spray! I’ve been wanting to try this out and the primer, and I’m so happy to hear you like it! I’m definitely going to stock up on this the next time I need a setting spray! Great post Hannah xxx
