Monthly Empties: November 2016

Yes, its that time of the month again... Empties!!

Odol-Med-3 Mouthwash // will repurchase
You probably know this from previous empties post. I really like this mouthwash. Keeps my breath fresh and it tastes minty-fresh. Will continue to repurchase.
L’Oréal expertise “Smoothing” shampoo and conditioner // would repurchase
I like the nourishing version (yellow one) a bit better than this one as it leaves my hair feeling softer and more nourished. However these were not bad either, so if you are curious it´s worth giving them a try. The entire line is one of my favorites regarding hair care. Plus, they are silicone free.
L’Oréal expertise “Nourishing” hair mask // would repurchase
I really love the shampoo and the conditioner of this line (honestly might be a holy grail next to the frizz ease series). The hair mask was nice as well even though I used it with the “smoothing” series.
Balea “Reinigungsöl” Make-up remover // will repurchase
This is a great drugstore oil make-up remover. Compared to others I have tried this doesn’t give me a blurry vision right after using it. I switched oils a couple of years ago and I love them.
Balea “Eucalyptus” bath // might repurchase
Generally speaking I love eucalyptus/menthol scent. I would have loved this product even more if the scent was a bit stronger in the bathtub. I mix it with some bath salts from Kneipp. The combo was good, however I am not sure whether I like this on its own enough for me to repurchase it.
Balea Shower & Oil “Apricot” Shower Gel // won´t repurchase
Big disappointment! This was not by any means nourishing even though the oil beads are supposed to give more moisture. Plus the smell under the shower reminded me of plastic not fresh picked apricots. Will not repurchase this.
What have you used up this month?

MAC “Cheers my dear” Pigment

MAC “Cheers my dear” pigment is a limited edition shade that I got as a part of the “Cool Thrillseekers Pigments/Glitter” set back in 2010. It was also re-released in the “Archie´s Girl” collection in 2013.

The color can me described as a frosted pink/lavender with silver sheen. Initially I thought this could be a dupe for Kitschmas Pigment by MAC, but Kitschmas seems to be a bit more cool tone (and more chunky in terms of quality). If you had to choose between these two I would go with “cheers my dear” because I like the quality better (finely milled!).
How do you like “Cheers my dear”? Hit or Miss?

Product I have hit pan on 2016 – almost done!

Every time I hit pan on a product I get a little bit excited and sad at the same time. Excited because that pan is evidence that I have enjoyed using that product and sad because there is not much left of it. Do you ever experience the same?

Here are mine “hit the pan” products, hope you enjoy!

MAC “Mulch” eyeshadow
I have been working on using this eyeshadow up on what is feels like forever.
It’s a nice warm tone brown with golden glitter but I have a lot of similar shades which is why I want to use this one up.
Repurchase: No

MAC “Beautiful Iris” eyeshadow
I love this light lavender shade. It´s one of my favorite eyeshadows from MAC.
Repurchase: Yes

MAC “Omega” eyeshadow
I use MAC “Omega” as a transitioning color. If I am honest though, I would rather repurchase Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow instead of this one. “Naked” has bit better color payoff and is just easier to blend. Nonetheless not a bad eyeshadow.
Repurchase: Maybe

MAC “Blanktype” eyeshadow
This is my all-time favorite under the brow bone matt highlighter. I love how buttery soft this eyeshadow is and how light the color is. Perfect shade for me.
Repurchase: Yes

Maybelline “Though as taupe” color tattoo
I have been working consistently on this product and believe I might actually be able to use this up by the end of the year.
Repurchase: Yes

Benefit R.S.V.P. (sample size)
A lovely rose champagne color. I have been loving applying this kind of shade on my eyelids so hopefully I will be anle to make some progress and use it up by the end of the year. Hopefully I will be able to do so as the product is starting to dry out. This is getting dried up
Repurchase: Unsure

Manhattan Clearface Powder in "70 Vanilla"
I had heard about this powder so I wanted to give it a try and see if I liked it. So far so good. It has a medium coverage that sometimes might looked a bit cakey. But with a light Hand, perfect especially paired with a sheer foundation.
Repurchase: Maybe

Catrice LE “Enter Wonderland” Highlighter
I love this highlighter. In fact I love it so much that I already used up one of these entirely. Yes, that is 10gr of highlighter that I finished. It´s a perfect everyday glow and just looks amazing on my skin. I´ll sure be sad when this is gone.
Repurchase: I have, 3 times!
