    RECENT EMPTIES | Would I Repurchase?

    Um Jaime, why are you blogging about your trash? I love these empties styled posts because they give an honest insight into a product that someone has used right to the last drop.
    Here’s the nitty gritty on a few of the things I have used up lately, and if they’ve reached repurchasable (not a real word, but should be!) status!

    Vichy Nutriextra Hand Cream – lightweight, soaks in quickly with a gentle barely there clean scent. What can I say, it was lovely, but I went through this tube lightening fast! I’m not sure I would repurchase simply for the fact that I could see myself constantly needing a new tube.

    Jack Black Lip Balm in Natural Mint – this bad boy has literally jumped into HG status for me on the first tube. I’ve already repurchased and will continue to as it leaves my lips feeling super soft and never cracked or peely. For a girl who suffers horribly with dry lips, this is a pucker must have!

    Revlon Colorstay Base Coat – I actually liked this much more than I thought I was going to. Revlon’s other offerings in the top coat/base coat world have left me seriously under impressed for years, but this does a great job considering it is a drugstore offering. I will mention that the reason this bottle isn’t entirely empty is because it got very gloopy and sticky near the end. Also I feel it is a tad expensive for a drugstore brand polish ( the same as Essie in terms of cost). Will I repurchase? Probably, but maybe after I try something new.

    Covergirl Lash Blast Volume WP – Most definitely a repurchase here! This mascara always makes me wonder why I stopped using it in the first place. Buildable, lengthening and defining – and gets my more compliments than any other!

    Urban Decay Dew Me Setting Spray – A lovely setting spray for those dry or combo skinned ladies who don’t want to pop too much powder on. This sets my makeup beautifully, takes down any powderyness a notch and keeps my makeup looking fresher longer. I’ve already repurchased, though it should be noted Urban Decay has changed the name to Chill Setting Spray.

    Nars Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base – Oh, you know I love this! I wont drone on much more than to say it is THE BEST eyeshadow primer by leaps and bounds. Repurchased and always will. “Nuff said.

    What products have you finished up lately? Any that you will repurchase? Have you discovered favourites from seeing other peoples empties posts and videos?
