April empties part 2 (12)

Hey everyone, if you haven’t viewed part 1 of this months empties then go ahead and it view it. This part is focused on make up, hair care and skin care.

Superdrug 100 round pads (£1.00), L’oreal Preference hair dye in natural dark brown (£6.99) and L’oreal Preference high shine conditioner (comes with hair dye): I am mentioning all three of these in one because they have all been in past blog posts a lot, so I will not be reviewing them again.

NYC smooth skin bronzer in Sunny (£3.99). This was the final item in my project pan! In the photo you can see the small bit of pan. It had to go it was so old and orange on my fair skin so you can probably guess my opinion on repurchasing. However, this is a cult favourite for many so it really depends on your skin tone and undertone.

Makeup Revolution pressed powder in translucent (£2.00).  I had high hopes for this after I purchased their blush palette but I guess you get what you pay for. All the writing on the packaging rubbed off within weeks, it contains one of those cheap foam round sponges that I hate and the product itself made my skin look super powdery and I needed to touch up after 2 hours. The only good thing I have to say about it is that I like the concept of the mirror on the bottom.

AVON Planet Spa Perfectly Purifying face mask (£3.00). This mask did absorb all the oil on my face but it didn’t get the dirt out of my pores as I wanted it to. So I want to try a mask that gets rid of dirt in pores and blackheads, anyone got any recommendations???

YESto grapefruit facial wipes (£3.99). I love the scent of these wipes and it takes my make up off really well but I just can’t buy them again. I had the exact same problem as the cucumber ones, they burnt my eyes. So far I have only been okay with the carrot ones. I don’t know if I should bother trying the coconut ones, what do you think??

AVON Luxe lip gloss in elegant gold (£4.50). The reason that this is in my empties post is because it has very obviously expired (smells like glue) and is in my project pan lips edition. I never used this because it had big chunks of glitter in it and was a clear gloss. It is currently being discontinued by AVON and I can’t say I will miss it.

MAC Dazzleglass in Sugarrimmed (£17.50). Back when I purchased this I mentioned on Instagram that the formula of this wasn’t very sticky…scratch what I said…its super sticky. As the product has gotten older it has gotten sticker and sticker. As the product begins to fade off your lips the glitter clumps together. Since this one was made in 2013 it has long ago expired. I won’t purchase any dazzleglass ever again.

Una Brennan Super Facialist micellar water 200ml (£6.99). I saw Alessandra Steinherr talk about this on Snapchat and instantly wanted to try it out. This product is really good for removing my face make up but I have the same issues as the Yesto wipes with it. I can’t use it on my eye area as it is too sensitive for it. So unfortunately I won’t repurchase.

Smashbox photo finish oil free primer sample (£5.00). This is a nice primer I just don’t believe it is the right one for me. I am desperate to try out the pore minimising one thought.

Indeed labs Hydraluron moisture jelly (£24.99). This product is talked about so much on Instagram and YouTube. Although I really don’t know why. This did improve my skin a little whilst I was using. However, not enough for the price tag. Maybe the results would of been different with the serum version I don’t know. Do you guys prefer that one??

That is the last post on empties this month, making a total of 22 items! Please let me know what kind of posts you want to see in the future.
