Empties: April 2021

During 2020 I wore very little makeup and recently went through it all and noticed quite a lot was out of date or had gone off.

ELF 100 Eyeshadow Palette | I have had this for around 10 years and never seemed to reach for it. The pigmentation wasn't that great and I have other palettes I prefer [review and swatches].
ELF 32 Eyeshadow Palette | Another one I have had for far to long, and another one I never reach for. Glitters and shimmers aren't something I would often wear [review and swatches].
Naked Urban Decay Basics | I don't remember where I got this but don't think it is legit, the colours are pigmented especially the black but think it is out of date now.

MUA Luxe Kooky Matte Liquid Lipstick | This had gone off, I liked the colour of this and the formula [review and swatch].
MUA Luxe Reckless Matte Liquid Lipstick | Again this was out of date, the formula was nice but the red was too bright for me [review and swatch].
Makeup Revolution All I Think About is You Liquid Lipstick | Out of date, I don't think this one was a matte one that set which for me didn't work because the colour was so bright and easy to smudge.
Barry M Matte Me Up Bespoke Liquid Lipstick | I liked the lipstick, it was metallic and matte which sounds like a contradiction, something I would repurchase [swatch].
Barry M Matte Me Up Bespoke Liquid Lipstick | The formula on this one had separated, the shade was too light for me so won't repurchase [swatch].

Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara | I liked this mascara, it was good at making my lashes look thicker. I'd repurchase this one, only throwing it away because it has gone bad.
ELF Makeup Remover Pen | I thought that this would be good for fixing winged eyeliners, and it did work the few times I used it but has since dried up.
Collection Eyeshadow Pencil Vanilla Sky 1 | I got this for a certain look I was doing and haven't reached for it since, it is a shimmery cream eye pencil [swatch].
Max Factor Kohl Liner | This is too small to hold and I never reached for it as I have better black eyeliners.
Flashmob Eyeliner | The formula on this is nice, doesn't drag the skin. This particular one is a green shimmer shade I hardly reached for before it went out of date.
Revolution Lip Liner Vamp | This one I don't think has gone bad, however the formula is not good. Too dry and patchy which isn't something you would want [swatch].

Vosene Shampoo | Does what it is supposed to do, the scent is medicated and does linger on my hair if my conditioner isn't strongly scented. I'll buy this again.
Garnier Ultimate Blends Conditioner | I keep repurchasing this. It is thick and smells of argan oil and the scent lingered in my hair as well as leaving my hair soft and smooth.
7th Heaven PawPaw Peel Off  | I'm not sure what the claims were for this mask but it left my skin feeling soft. Not sure I would repurchase though.
L'Occitaine Amande Shower Oil | I didn't use this as a shower oil, I used it in the bath and it left my skin feeling soft. Didn't notice it having any particular scent to it.

This month I have three lipbalms, however I only finished two of them.

Shine Bright Vanilla Rose Lipbalm | I liked the product itself and finished it, it did what you'd want from a lipbalm however I don't like glitter and it kept coming off the lid, also I don't like the scent of rose. I wouldn't repurchase this.
Lypsyl Cucumber Lipbalm | I didn't finish the one, the scent was a bit weird but I could get over that and just use it up. But every time I used it I noticed a really bitter taste in my mouth. Took a while to work out what it was so did use about half of the tube, certainly not a repurchase item.
Swizzles Double Dip Lipbalm | Finished this tube, the scent was slightly citrus-y, the texture was quite soft but it did what you would hope they would do. Would repurchase this one.

Lush Bat Art Bath Bomb | Very conflicting views on this, it was a lovely dark colour and smelt nice. However it stained my bath and left me and the bath glittery [review].
Lush Angel's Delight Soap | As I said in a previous empties post I am aiming to use less plastic. This one I have had in my stash since 2009 so was time to use it up. The scent of this is fruity and would repurchase, if it was still available.
Rimmel - Rita's Black | Only one polish finished this month, the brush was good on this being wide and rounded cuticle. The formula is okay on it for a black but I have better black creams in my collection and so won't repurchase [swatch].
