Latest Empties + Review

It has been quite a while since I’ve done any beauty related blogpost. In the future, I am definitely planning skin routines, everyday makeup routines, and posts like that that are related to beauty. Sometimes I forget to save my empties! So, these are the ones I have recovered in the past couple of months. Since I have used up all of these products, why not review it for you guys, right?

Listerine Zero Mouthwash My boyfriend is obsessed with dental health and fresh breath, which I great appreciate obviously. He’s always with a bottle of mouthwash and a pack of floss, and I tend to make fun of him for it. To be honest though, he’s gotten me to be more conscious. One thing that I hate about mouthwash, especially the normal Listerine is how much it burns. I found out that the alcohol in the mouthwash is what makes your mouth burn, so I decided to try a mouthwash without alcohol. This stuff is great! No terrible burn, a good taste, and fresh breath. Everything I could ask for in a mouthwash.

Anastasia Brow Wiz Anastasia’s brow product is all over the beauty world. I have successfully transitioned to Anastasia’s pomade, but this brow pencil is the next best thing. Perfect for on the go! Be careful though. You might run out a bit quickly if you tend to always break the tip like I do. Tip: Go one shade lighter than what you think you should buy. I found that the shade that matched me hair actually showed up too dark on my eyebrows.

L’Oreal Voluminous Building Mascara This is actually my current mascara. I always come back to this baby! I try other mascaras when I have the chance to, but this mascara gives you a lot of volume, darkness, AND length without it looking too fake or clumpy. If you buy the non-waterproof formula, you will see that it will come off of your lashes easily without ripping out eyelashes! ‘

NYX Shine Killer Primer I have no idea why I used this primer in the first place because I’m not shiny at all. I think I was going for a super matte look at the time! I will always recommend any type of primer. Primer gives your skin such a great base for makeup to be applied on top of it, and it makes your face stay longer than without primer. This one is pretty affordable too. Try it out!

Naked Skin Complete Coverage Concealer This concealer is the BEST high end one you can find in my opinion! I have tried concealer after concealer in the past few years. From Nars to Bobbi Brown to Mac. This formula is great for either on top or under your foundation. I use this one for my dark circles and for pimples. It doesn’t look cakey and doesn’t really seep into fine lines either! Also, very long-lasting which is key to a long school day.

Origins’ A Perfect World Moisturizer If you are looking for a good moisturizer from Sephora, i’d say try Origins. I’m very indifferent about moisturizer. I like all of them! The price point is terribly high, but this moisturizer is great for dry skin. I find it works really well at night if you apply a thick layer. Origins, as a brand, has really great scents for their skincare products so you don’t have to worry about that either. Give it a try!

L’Oreal Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner This eyeliner is a holy grail product for me! I find that the Infallible Eyeliners last all day and the thinnest brush works well for tightlining and makes lines that are super close to your lashline. The only downfall is that this eyeliner dries up quickly. It’s a pretty cheap eyeliner though, so no biggie! Comparable to Kat Von D’s Tattoo Eyeliner.

Hourglass’ Veil Mineral Primer If only I had enough money to purchase the full size every time. I received a travel sized bottle of this primer as a reward perk and instantly fell in love! This primer makes your skin so smooth and creates the absolute perfect finish for matte foundations. My face never looked to flawless with a high end primer.

NYX’s Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer A hidden gem in the NYX section. Not a lot of people know about this primer, or are reluctant to try it because it’s on the high end of NYX. It provides the SAME gorgeous finish as the Hourglass primer. Crazy right? It is the closest dupe there is to the Houglass Veil Mineral Primer. And for what? A fourth of the price? A product I would recommend to ANYONE if they want longlasting, smooth makeup.

Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser This cleanser is simple and hydrating! I also got this travel size as a point perk, and I used it right up. The price point is high for such natural ingredients but I found that my face reacted fairly well to it. This is nothing too heavy in chemicals either! So, if you have a face like mine that works perfect fine with soft cleansers, this one is for you.

Elf’s Mist & Set Makeup Setting Spray Pretty self explanatory! This spray sets your make up all day. Personally, I think the high end ones work better like Urban Decay’s All Nighter. This spray is a good drugstore option though if you’re not looking to spend a lot of money!

    1. You’re such a doll, Yuka! It’s really funny because I was just looking through your blog and thinking “man, this blog is amazing!” I love the theme and your content and you & Erdal and everything girl! I’m Japanese and Filipino too 😉 hehe. Thanks for the follow! – J

  1. I love BrowWhiz and use it to pencil in my brows then do the ends with Dipbrow, but like you I’ve snapped the tip a few times! How have I only just heard of NYX Angel Veil? It sounds awesome, I’ll have to keep an eye out for that – thanks for the tip 🙂 | Amy x


    1. Girl, that is what i’m saying! No one hears about NYX Angel Veil, and that is hands down one of the BEST products in the line. My #1 goes to the Soft Matte Lip Creams and my #2 would be Angel Veil. Please try it and let me know what you think, okay? Thanks for the comment 🙂 – J
