Over A Year of Empties: Finished Product Reviews from November 2016 through January 2018

I cannot believe how quickly time has passed since I last reviewed my empty products. This has been hard time with a lot of loss so my mindset was not focused on beauty as much as it usually is. During 2017, I barely ever wore makeup, although I continued to collect some for the day I once again had the desire to spend quality time getting ready. Since this was a year of bare minimum pampering (other than moisturizers, which I consider a necessity), I have a lot less than I usually would. It is still important that I tell you what I thought of the items I finished and saved (as I spent a lot of time between two houses and hotels this year so I did not save all of my empties). My ex also started throwing things away after we separated when he used to save the items we both used when we were still together.

Empties November 2015

When the new month starts, I toss everything I finished the previous month. I give a mini review of each item. Items I love are usually repurchased, so some of them appear in the Empties Series a lot. If I like or am indifferent to an item, I will not rush out to repurchase, but I would be willing to use or try it again. Items that are not for me may not always be empty. Generally, I finish them but do not use them again in the future. If they’re really awful and new samples find their way to me, I give them to someone else unopened. For items I really love, I do a separate product spotlight to discuss them in more detail.

Empties September 2015

The beginning of the new month to me always represents closing out the previous month. I will give you a mini review on each item. I’ll tell you the items I love and will repurchase. If I like or am indifferent to an item, I will not rush out to repurchase, but I would be willing to use or try it again. Lastly, I will present the items that are not for me. Generally, I will not use these any more in the future. If they’re really awful to me, I always hope I can find someone else who may actually like them. Thus, I will try to find someone to give duplicates to. For the items that I really love, I will do a separate product spotlight on them at some point to discuss them in more detail.

Empties July 2015

The beginning of the new month to me always represents closing out the previous month. I am going to post July’s empties now and its FabuFinds later today. I will also post the next month’s tomorrow and finally be caught up. There is something so fulfilling about seeing something empty even though that sometimes mean you have to go out and buy more (assuming you do not already have backups).

Empties June 2015

The beginning of the new month to me always represents closing out the previous month. I am going to post June’s empties now and its FabuFinds later today. I am still trying to find a sunscreen I finished in July to go in July’s pictures, so I will take a one day break and post July on the 4th. There is something so fulfilling about seeing something empty even though that sometimes mean you have to go out and buy more (assuming you do not already have backups).

I will give you a mini review on each item. I’ll tell you the items I love and will repurchase.

Empties April 2015

Welcome to the new month. The beginning of the new month to me always represents closing out the previous month. While I am obviously still behind in writing articles, I did finish some items in April I’d love to go over now. There is something so fulfilling about seeing something empty even though that sometimes mean you have to go out and buy more (assuming you do not already have backups).

I will give you a mini review on each item. I’ll tell you the items I love and will repurchase. If I like or am indifferent to an item, I will not rush out to repurchase, but I would be willing to use or try it again. Lastly, I will present the items that are not for me.

Empties January 2015

One of my favorite threads on Beautytalk is the Empties.  Why?  More than any other thread, I get a feel for how someone really feels about a product.  Was it so amazing that they rushed out to buy replacements or so awful that they could not bring themselves to finish it?  While no product has a one size fits all place in life, I am reluctant to buy a new product I’ve never sampled when multiple people on the Empties thread give the product a thumbs down.  In the spirit of honest reviews on everything I try, I will review everything once a month as I’ve finished them.  You will see months where the same products make appearances.  If they’re amazing, I will continue buying them.

Each month, I will give you a mini review on each item.  I’ll tell you the items I love and will repurchase.  If I like or am indifferent to an item, I will not rush out to repurchase, but I would be willing to use or try it again.  Lastly, I will present the items that are not for me.  Generally, I will not use these any more in the future.  If they’re really awful to me, I always hope I can find someone else who may actually like them.  Thus, I will try to find someone to give duplicates to.  For the items that I really love, I will do a separate product spotlight on them at some point to discuss them in more detail.  My first product spotlight will immediately follow these mini reviews, because there are four amazing items in the attached picture I have not discussed yet.
