Beauty Empties (A First!)

I must admit it, I do love collecting beauty items.  It just sits there and look pretty whether it be eye shadow palettes, skin care samples, mascaras, eye liners, or blush.  There are some items that I forget that I even have because of the clutter of samples and items I don't touch or have it in a different bin. I tell myself I will eventually get to it and use it however I don't.  Maybe its too pretty to use or I should save it.  That's been my mentality so far.

However that's not quite the mentality of the Mr. All he sees is just a clutter mess of items that I don't use and just collect.  I mean he collects stuff too so he doesn't say much, but I do admit my vanity can be a mess at times.

So in light of my ever cluttered vanity mess, I decided to go about doing Beauty Empties post about products that I have finally used or cleared out.  I need to do this, so this will motivate me to use the items I have and then be able to buy more! Yay to that.

Jan-Feb empties:

1. Revlon Beyond Natural Concealer & Highlighter
          ~ I picked up this Concealer/Highlighter on a whim. The color was a bit off but not something I couldn't work with.  The concealer was creamy and easy to work with but not as matte nor full coverage as I would have liked.  I didn't really use the highlighter as much as it was too light for my skin and did not show up much.
Repurchase: I probably would not repurchase

2. Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette - Hidden Agenda 07
          ~ I've had this for some time now and decided to finish it. I like that it does have three different concealer colors however for me, I had to blend two of the colors together to get what I needed. The powder was okay but a little hard to use. The consistency is pretty good its just the colors may not match well.  Overall this is a good concealer palette to try out.
Repurchase: Yes I would

3. MAC C-Thru Lipglass
          ~ This is one of my favorite MAC lipglasses. Its a nude pink color with a like pink shimmer.  Other than the stickier consistency (which is common) I like the product.
Repurchase: Yes I would

4. MAC Nuance Blush
           ~ One of my Favorite blushes that I use often. I'm already on my second one which is close to being done as well. Blush colors are coral and pink with hints of shimmer.  The only con would be that it is limited edition. I had to look all over for my second one. So you anyone has a spare and don't need it, send it my way!!
Repurchase: Yes if I can find one

There goes my first list of empties.  I hope I get through more this month at least one.

Use it up!!
