Empties: 10 I'm Tossing No. 3

Why not do another Empties post? Here are 10 more I'm tossing out.

  • La Mer Foundation: I'm going to be 100% honest here. I have no clue what foundation by La Mer this is or what colour it is. What I do know is, it is small, it is a sample, a client gave it to me and it never suited my skin tone so I never used it. Not once. Would I buy it again? No, I never tried it.
  • Elf Essentials All Over Colour Stick: At one point I had all the colours. I really liked them (at one point) but they have such a bad fake orange scent. They also get gross quickly, the cases crack and they just look horrid. I also honestly felt I tossed these quite a while ago...why do items keep on ending up back in my drawers? Would I buy it again? No, while they are good for newbies or someone who wants a tiny foundation, they get messy quick.
  • Elf Mineral Eye Brightner: I love this stuff! It is perfect for setting the concealer  and foundation under your eyes. Unlike the Studio version, this one has no shimmer in it. It is just great. Would I buy it again?Yes, I have another one on the go right now.
  • Joe Fresh Lip Tint in Bubble Gum and Crush: I got these a few summers back. I really love lip stains and the idea of brighter stains to help prolong brighter lip sticks is great idea. These have a slightly gel like texture though and quickly evaporated inside the tubes. If that wasn't strange enough the lids cracked. While they were just caps and the real wand lid was still intact, it was the only place with the shade names on it, so I kept the unsightly cracked lids. Would I buy it again? Not sure, I liked the idea, I wish there was more colour payoff though and better consistency. Plus do they even make them anymore?
  • Elf Studio Wrinkle Refiner: I don't know what to say about this one. Click, click, apply on wrinkles, watch them go matte. Apply makeup and watch it peel and ball off. {insert strange facial expression here}.Would I buy it again? No, it is just a crap product. CRAP.
  • Benfit Benetint: The iconic Benetint. Oh how I adore you. I've had this bottle forever! And Ever! So I have chosen to toss it. But I don't want to. Would I buy it again? YES! I have a few mini containers of it already and opened up a new one. So I am not without it.
  • L'oreal Total Repair Extreme Ultra-Concentrated Urgent Repair Care: This little tube with do wonders for your hair. Wonders I say! My hair can get pretty darn damaged, and using this once and a while makes it feel so much better. Would I buy it again? YES! I have 2 more tubes in my washroom for emergency use.
So that's another round of Tossing 10. I'm feeling good. Anything you've tossed lately?
