Welcome back to day 9 of my 12 Days of Christmas posts! This post is going to be all about some recent purchases, products I have used up and products I just don’t get any use out of anymore. I have been loving testing out the products I have had in my collection for some time, and figuring out if they are all time faves or just products I purchased because I wanted some new stuff to play with. If you want to see what products I have purchased/finished/decluttered lately, then keep on reading.
*Some of the products mentioned in this post were generously sent to me for free to test out. These products will be clearly marked*
Empty – Morphe Continuous Setting Spray
I seriously love this spray so much! I have been through quite a few bottles of it now and I have been struggling to find anything that even comes close to this product that is also cruelty-free. The spray itself is such a fine mist and it spreads so nicely across my skin without leaving any weird dots or marks. It helps to melt my makeup into my skin and also makes it last all day long. I will be repurchasing this one asap!
Declutter – Stila Magnificent Metals Liquid Eyeshadow in the shade Wanderlust
I really wanted to love this product! This shade is very sheer compared to others I have tried. It also dries up way too quickly, there is no way anyone can ever empty a bottle of this before it goes dry. But the biggest issue, it burns my eyes when I use it. I wish I could use these as some of the shades are stunning, but sadly it’s a no from me and I will not be purchasing any of these in the future.
New In – Bermese Dream Liquid Lipsticks
I was sent these very recently and I am excited to test them out! I did a major declutter of my liquid lipsticks this year and I am left with a very small portion. Matte lipsticks are my favourites and I am hoping that I will get a lot of wear out of these. I will definitely be putting them to the test soon and letting you know what I think of them. The shades are super cute also! *These products were sent to me for free*
Empty – Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water
I have had this in my collection for way too long now and I am glad to see the end of it. Firstly, I didn’t enjoy the smell of this product at all! Secondly, I don’t think it did much in terms of ‘priming’ my skin or keeping my makeup in place all day. It just felt like I was spraying smelly water on my face for no reason. I was committed to use it up, and that’s exactly what I did. I will not be repurchasing this one.
Declutter – Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe
If you remember this palette being released then you automatically get 10 points! This is such an old collectors item that I have absolutely loved over the years. Sadly, it is waaaaay past it’s expiry date and takes up a lot of space in my collection. I would love to repurchase the shades that I loved in this palette in their single forms (if I can ever find them!) but they are hard to come by. Goodbye old friend, you will be missed.
New In – Stila One Step Correct Primer
This is actually a repurchase! I used up this product a month or so ago and have been missing it ever since. I love this primer because not only is it very hydrating but it also colour corrects the skin AND fills in pores! I use it almost every single time I wear makeup and I absolutely love it.
Empty – Mario Badescu Facial Spray
This is another product I have kept in my collection for way too long. This is a beautiful spray to make your skin feel refreshed and hydrated, but that is about all it does. Even though it is a beautiful product, I don’t see the point of it in my collection so I finally used it up and I won’t be repurchasing this one.
New In – Ulta3 Goodies
I picked up some goodies from my favourite affordable brand, Ulta3. I had been given some stuff from them in the past but when the recent Black Friday sales hit, I knew I had to repurchase some of my favourites, and some new goodies to test out. The Go To Great Lengths Mascara was a fast favourite of mine when I was first sent it, so I had to repurchase 2 more of them so I never ran out! Everything else I purchased intrigued me and I wanted to put them to the test for you guys (stay tuned for that in 2021!)
