Empties And Mini Reviews


I don’t know about you, but I have a box under my dressing table where I put all my empties, they build up and build up until, finally, there are enough to write a blog post about, and here is said blog post. As I’ve used them up I also find that I can give you my accurate opinions on the products as I have used them up; either because I liked them or because I wanted to get rid!


First up is makeup empties; my favourite! 

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara – I was really into the retro eye makeup when this first came out it claimed to give the lashes a more winged out effect and to an extent it did this. I actually really like the brush, it’s an hourglass shape and gets the inside and outer lashes and lengthens them well for a drugstore mascara.

Maybelline Babylips, Hydrate and Peach Kiss – If I’m being honest the effectiveness of these as lip balms is practically zero. They smell good and the tinted ones, (such as Peach Kiss,) add a pretty tint but other than that they’re no where near as good as a Chapstick or tub of Vaseline.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Precision Eyeliner Pen – This was the first proper eyeliner I managed to used as I used to suck at it. This is pretty good when new, it gives dark line, but as it started to dry out it became more and more difficult to use, but it’s a good first eyeliner nonetheless.

Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer – I should have bought Lasting Perfection but I think it was out of stock so I picked up this instead, and to be honest it’s a good highlighting concealer. The applicator really helps precisely place the product on the points needed.


And the rest…

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation 010 Light Porcelain – This has quickly become my go to foundation as it is pale enough and gives good coverage. I didn’t realise I was running out of it and I had to convince my family that we needed a trip into town to get me some more!

Nicki Minaj Pink Friday – I got this in the Boots sale last year after Christmas in a giftset and I have adored the scent ever since and was lucky enough to receive the 100ml version this Christmas.

BLEACH London Rose – I got the BLEACH London Spin The Bleach Bottle, (post here,) in the sales and have so far only used Rose, a beautiful cotton candy pink. It wasn’t the longest lasting dye but did look how I wanted it to without drying out my hair like chalking does. 

That’s all for today, no doubt a new empties post will find it’s way onto the blog soon enough. What have you used up recently, anything you recommend I try?

      I hate knowing you're going to run out so I always try to have a spare for when I do!xx

    I love Rose by Bleach, but The Big Pink is by far my favourite – a deeper, almost raspberry pink, so pretty. I've just swapped Pink Friday out for Minajesty, which I really love!Sammy xo.littlefickleblog.blogspot.com
