Empties: Finished Product Reviews Fall 2019

By Kimberly

It’s time to review my empty products from Fall 2019. By the time I’ve finished something, I know exactly how I feel about it, so I prefer reviews of empties to first impressions. For items I neither love nor hate, I am always willing to try them again, but I will not seek them out. This generally means I will only try them again if they are: free, on sale, or in a set (sets are a great way to get a deal as long as the value of the items you want to try exceed the cost you are paying). The pH of products I’ve tested this season are below. Visit the pH article for info on how I test and a list of everything I’ve tested.

pH (Potential Hydrogen) List of Products I’ve Tested

Want to know the pH of products? At the end of each season, I will conduct pH (Potential Hydrogen) tests on all empty products that still have liquid in them and compile a master list here. The pH of each product will also appear behind the review of each empty article the product appears in. Type the product name into the search bar to find the corresponding article for the review. It is possible I will occasionally test products that are not yet empty. Place your testing request in the comments. I will test it if it is a product I own, and it is already opened. Opening and/or purchasing a product just to test it is not something I will usually do, because the expiration countdown starts the moment the product opens.

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.
