Empties/Throw-A-Ways Part #2

“Wow I use a ton of makeup, didn’t I just do a post like this?!”

BACK at it again, folks 😉

It’s time for another segment of “Will I repurchase?” or “Why did I toss it?” I think these posts are super helpful to others! It shows you actually put time and effort into a product and for some reason or another loved it (considering you finished it) or hated it (enough to throw it away).

This is different than a first impression, this is a bonafide REVIEW, ladies.

First up!

  1. it Cosmetics Superhero mascara retails for $24.00
    THIS. MASCARA. IS. AMAZING. Admittedly, it’s one of the first high-end mascaras I’ve ever used! And it did not disappoint. This is, hands down, a holy grail. It gives volume, length, and adds “ba da BAM!” to your lashes.
    Would I repurchase? Absolutely.
  2. Model Co Power Lash mascara retails for $9.00 (travel size)
    I was not a fan of this mascara. I used it up on weekdays for work because it added something to my eyes to wake me up. On weekends? Forget about it – never reached for it.
    Would I repurchase? No.

  3. CVS Calming Cleansing towelettes retail for $6.59
    These were dry, which I suppose is to be expected from a store brand makeup wipe. I’d rather use Neutrogena or the Simple micellar water wipes (which Kathleen Lights raves about). Anyways, since they weren’t wet enough, they tugged a lot at my skin, which caused an opposite sensation than “calming.” Instead, I was left with a red face and had to work twice as hard to remove all traces of makeup.
    Would I repurchase? No, but maybe in a pinch.

  4. Rimmel London Stay Matte pressed powder in sandstorm retails for $5.49
    I LOVE this pressed powder! Since they have a *semi-pathetic* shade range, you can at least get a small amount of coverage from this powder if used with a sponge. I typically swirl my brush into it to set my face, especially the areas where I get the oiliest *cough, t-zone, cough*. But it does a phenomenal job at keeping me matte for longer than usual. I like that it’s small enough to take on the road too.
    BE FOREWARNED: it breaks easily! Don’t be throwing it around in your bag.
    Would I repurchase? Yes! And I already have!

  5. American Eagle rollerball fragrance retails for $14.95
    I don’t remember which scent this is in, but I loved this! Rollerballs are so convenient to carry in your purse for touch-ups on the go. I remember being pleasantly surprised with this scent and would 100% buy another AEO rollerball. Sometimes they’re on sale for just $10, which is completely worth it.
    Would I repurchase? Yes.

  6. Caudalie Moisturizing Sorbet Cream retails for $39.00
    This moisturizer was good, I’ll give it that. It has a “cream-to-gel” formula that instantly melts into your skin. It left my face slightly tacky for a good foundation application, and the scent wasn’t bad either. However. However. I would never spend $40 on this. I will continue you buy my Garnier gel moisturizer for a fraction of the price. It provides the same moisture my skin needs while maintaining a lightweight feel that doesn’t add any extra shine to my t-zone.
    Would I repurchase? No.

So that’s everything! What are your thoughts? Have you emptied any of the same or similar products? Did you feel the same, or nah? Let me know – I’d love to discuss them some more.
