It has been a while since I have done an empties post (mostly because I keep forgetting to not throw the products away as I use them up!) but I have collated a few products at the same time so I thought I would let you guys know what I liked about these products and if I’d repurchase them.

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Light – I have had this for nearly two years now and used it off and on but wanted to use it up before it expired (August this year). Before I purchased my trusty OG Double Wear, their Double Wear Light option was my medium coverage, matte option. This isn’t quite as heavy-duty and full coverage as the original DW but I really liked it for an everyday base that had decent coverage too. This sort of reminded me of Rimmel’s Lasting Finish foundation, so I would probably purchase that one instead of Double Wear Light next time. I would say if you already have Double Wear, you don’t need the Light version because you can sheer out the Double Wear and get the same effect with more shades on offer.


  • Tanya Burr Cosmetics Selfie Sculpt Brow Pencil – I really liked this brow pencil for a quick and easy brow look. Some brow pencils get used up really quickly, but this one lasted me about 5 months which is pretty good (I am usually heavy-handed when applying my brow pencils too). I also used up the mascara in the same range recently too but I threw that away before I thought about doing this post! I have the shade Medium but I think I’d purchase Light next time for a more natural look. I won’t go on about this too much since I have already talked about it in this post here).


  • Urban Decay Ex-Girlfriend Lipstick – I finished this agessssssss ago but hung onto it because I knew I’d want to do an empties some time soon. This is the first lipstick I have ever used all up and I feel pretty proud of myself! This is my perfect ‘MLLB’ shade and is probably one of my all time fave lipsticks. It is a sheer formula and is really moisturising which is probably why I used it up since I could easily reapply throughout the day. It performs just like a tinted lip balm which makes it perfect to bring around in your bag. I definitely plan on repurchasing this, once I use up a few more lipsticks in my collection…


Sorry that this post was a little on the short side, I am terrible at remembering to keep hold of products once I use them up. I hope my next Empties has a few more products in!
