All used up- #1 "empties"

There is only ever 2 reasons why i finish a product; 1. i REALLY like it or 2. I'm desperate!

From left to right:
Clinique mini high impact mascara
Miami Glow By JLO
Sure Clear Diamond deodorant
Wella Shockwave hairspray 
Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation (shade 103 True Ivory, yeah right!)
L'Oreal Lumi Magique foundation (shade C1)
Rimmel Clear Complexion powder (021 transparent)
Natural Collection blush (in Pink cloud)
17 lipstick (in Bee-Hive)
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (in Light)
Maybelline Super Stay 24h concealer (shade 2- light/beige clair)

I think it is safe to say that when it came to the foundations that was defiantly moments of desperation that forced me on to finish them (if you read my blog post of foundation comparisons you'll know why). As for most of the products they were OK and got me through the day but the only things that really stood out to me that i will be repurchasing are these little beauties:

I am in love with the Bioderma and 17 lipstick! I had read so much about both that i finally caved and delved right on in and by golly I'm glad i jumped on that band waggon. The Bioderma is a beast, once it sets to work on your face no make up is safe from it's path and as for the lipstick, well lets just say I'll be buying one for the handbag and one for my make up table thank you very muchly (perfect all round nude that would suit most skin types, fact).

The concealer is another firm favourite and i don't just me to repurchase, once you put that creamy liquid on to your face you best work fast ladies because it drys quicker then a tumble dryer on auto pilot and don't budge until you attack it with ya Bioderma! (must remember to go for lighter shade though as for some reason my mind was attempting to think that my skin was more tanned then it is, wishful thinking i recon).

The MAC powder and Clinique mascara are pretty self explanatory but the deodorant came a little out of left field i know but as deodorants go this one smells pretty damn good, also avoiding any sweat pad incidents which is always a bonus in my book.

  2. Why thank you :). yeah i have that problem too its shampoos and foundation for me! What i find annoying is that your always left with the conditioner after using up the matching shampoo though, do you have that problem too?! xx
