Empties: August 2016

First up is the make up products;
Essence All About Matt Powder - I really liked this powder it is white so it doesn't tint your skin the way a normal beige toned powder would. Keeps my foundation set and me matte for a good few hours. Bargain price, will probably repurchase this.
Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker - Not one for gloss generally, I think I got this in a set. I have had it for too long and never reached for it so time to bin it.
Makeup Revolution Amazing Curl Mascara Brown and Black - I am binning both of these mascaras because they have fibres in them which are supposed to lengthen your lashes but I find the fibres fall out in to my eyes and irritate them. Not something I want from a mascara.

Random Bits;
ELF Daily Brush Cleaner - It is a shame that this isn't the standard sized bottle, the one they sell now is about a fifth of the size. I like it but won't be repurchasing the smaller size for a higher price.
Garnier Micellar Water - Didn't think I would like using a micellar water, I don't reach for face wipes and I thought this would be the same. It isn't, it is really good for removing make up and while I don't use it if I have been wearing a 'heavy duty' face of make up it does still have its uses and will be repurchasing.
Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel - Sickly sweet shower gel, smells like pear drops. Gorgeous but very expensive for a shower gel.
Sally's Pure Acetone - I really like this, exactly what you would expect from a 100% acetone. Great size one, best I can find on the high street too being 1 litre. Will be repurchasing as soon as I can get to Sallys and they have it in stock.

Nag Champa - If you ever wondered what my flat generally smells like, it would be this incense. It burns for a long time, the scent is really strong and lasts. You can smell it from down the street if I have my windows open. If you have ever walked past a 'goth shop' or an 'alternative shop' chances are this will be what the smell is you are smelling. Will always repurchase this.
Yankee Candle Sweet Apple Wax Tart - The scent throw on this tart was good, and it lasted for about 12 hours with tea lights. It smells very similar to McDonalds Apple Pies IIRC.
Yankee Candle Gingerbread Maple Votive - An odd one to be burning in August perhaps, I don't usually find votives to have all that strong of a scent but this one did, it scented my entire flat with the sweet scent of gingerbread. It was quite a festive scent.
Yankee Candle Sugared Apple Votive - Another odd one for August. This was more a typical votive, there wasn't much scent throw at all. Very light, sweet scent.



  1. And back in the 90s/00s even when you ordered something from an online goth shop everything would have smelled exactly like those incenses! <3

    1. Haha yes! I find a lot of incense to smell awful and to burn really quickly but this one I like. I should branch out try something new really :p
