December Empties

Hey doll hey. Let’s talk trash. I saved my empties last month to show you what I used up for the month. I’ll give a small review and tell you if I would repurchase the items again or not… so let’s jump into it…..


Bioderma Micelle Solution ($14.90 on the Beautylish website for 16.7 fluid ounces): A+++ This product is billed as a French skincare brand whose products are known for being highly effective but gentle enough to use on even the most sensitive skin. I use this everyday twice a day. 1 Bottle normally lasts me about a month 1/2. I use it to remove my makeup and then to cleanse my face daily. I use it in the morning to cleanse my face of my moisturizers and prep my skin for makeup application. I’ve been using it for about 2 years and my skin has never looked better. I always have 2 bottles as back ups just in case I run out a bit faster than I typically do.


Marc Joacobs Daisy Dream Kiss ($54.97 at Nordstorm Rack and on the PerfumeNet website): A+++!!!!                                                                                                                            This perfume’s top notes are Pineapple, Blackcurrant, and Grapefruit. It’s middle notes are Rhubarb, White Freesia, and Jasmine, and it’s bottom notes are Cedar wood, Musk, and Ambrox.  I loved this perfume so much that I went out and purchased the full Daisy line. I have so much perfume that it took me almost a year 1/2 to finish this bottle and even though I have so much perfume I repurchased it. I wore it everyday in the month of December. It’s a very playful scent that is perfect for any occasion.


Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray ($33 for 4 fluid ounces at Ulta and Sephora): A+++ This is billed as being a patented Temperature Control Technology, this weightless setting and finishing mist actually lowers the temperature of your makeup and delivers up to 16 hours of fade-proof, flawless makeup. This was the first setting spray I ever purchased and I keep coming back to it. Out of all the setting sprays that I own this is my favorite one. I have already repurchased this one and also purchased a back up because I went 3 2 weeks already without it. It just melts all the powders into your skin so perfectly and it truly makes your makeup last all day.


Shiseido Facial Cotton ($12 for 165 sheets): A+++!!!! This is the only cotton product I use on my face. I love it so much that I already did a dedicated review to it…. you can read that here ->Shiseido Cotton Review  . I feel like this bag lasts for such a long time. I have already repurchased and have a few back ups so I never run out.


Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara ($23 for .24 fluid ounces at Ulta): C+                              This mascara is billed as being a jet-black, vegan mascara that comes with a molded brush that grabs & coats even the tiniest lashes and has a patented silicone wand with multi-length bristles coat every lash for a longer & thicker look with one stroke. Intense patent black pigments make it easy to get a pro-look with one stroke. Triple-black mineral pigments & more good-for-you ingredients strengthen, condition & give high-impact volume & definition. I don’t know, it was just an OK mascara for me. Sometimes my lashes looked great other times they were clumpy and flaky and other times they were short and stubby. I just used this mascara so that I wouldn’t waste the money but I truly wanted to just chuck it in the bin… I will never repurchase this one.


No 7 Youthful Eye Serum ($16.90 for .5 fluid ounces and I get it on Amazon but you can find it at Ulta): A+++!!!                                                                                                                    This is a very nice eye serum that sinks into the delicate area of the eyes so fast and just leaves the eyes feeling refreshed and hydrated. I use it twice a day (morning and night). It soothes my under eyes after taking off my makeup. This serum isn’t too heavy and really preps the eyes for eye cream. I find that I go through a tube a month. You only need a pea sized amount. I have repurchased this serum.


No 7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Serum ($29.99 for 1 fluid ounce I get it on Amazon but you can find it at Ulta): A+++!!!                                                                                   I use it twice a day every day. Ever since I started using this serum my skin has had a very healthy glow to it. It sinks into the face quickly and leaves the face feeling velvety smooth. I have already repurchased this one and can’t live without it.


No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream ($21.99 for .5 fluid ounces and I get it from Amazon but you can get it at Ulta): A++                                                                                 I haven’t noticed any smoothing of my fine lines but I have noticed that my normally dry eye area is more supple since using this product. I noticed that my eyeshadow goes on so much easier and less patchy since starting to use this eye cream. I use it twice a day every day and have already repurchased it.

Well that’s all dolls…. see ya tomorrow when I review some more products from Shop Miss A. Until then remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
