Used Up Makeup Products

While I did try to write about the beauty products I’ve used up, at some point I’ve got annoyed, as having a huge bag of empty bottles at home was not cool. But I’ve started posting  what new products I get to replace some of those I’ve used up over at my Instagram

However, I do want to share my makeup empties. And, considering how many products I actually have, finishing even one  is kind of a big deal. And I have five! I did not include any mascaras though, as I do use up several every year.

Dior Addict Lipstick in 561 Baby Rose (review and swatches)

I loved this lipstick so much and I would re-purchase it, however, Dior re-launched this line, so I will have to look for a similar version. Barely there sheer pinks are my version of a nude lip, so I do end up using quite a lot of lip products like this.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in 01 Rose (review and swatches)

Another sheer pink, and another Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector empty. I have finished quite a lot of these during the years, both glosses and

Best Beauty Products of 2014 Makeup Clarins, RBR, theBalm, Lacnome, Max FactorEye Shadows Platte – theBalm Shady Lady Vol 2 (review)

I have re-discovered this beauty in summer, and  this was the palette I travelled with most of the times, amazing formulas, great colour selection, thin packaging and great mirror – what else do you need? theBalm eye shadows are among the best.

 Mascara – Clarins Be Long (review)

I’ve managed to get lush looking lashes with Be Long, it separates perfectly, is never clumpy, and gives a nice , rather dramatic effect, if you use several coats. The brush, for me, is mess-free. I have recommended it to several friends, and they loved it, too.

Cream Eye Shadow – Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows  (review)

Definitely one of the coolest eye shadows I’ve discovered  in ages.  Mousse-like texture that allows you to get a sheer   hint of shimmer, or layer it on for a more intense look. It is stunning both ways!

Shavata Double Ended Eyebrow Pencil Review and Swatches. Rave

Today I want to tell you about my current favourite eye brow product ever. And it’s Shavata Double Ended Eyebrow Pencil.

I’ve seen quite a few videos with Shavata, a beautiful lady behind the brand, in the past and got the idea that she knows her thing. But did not expect to like this product this much.

Shavata Double Ended Eyebrow Pencil Review and SwatchesSince the pencil is so thin, mine broke in the post, unfortunately. 

Why?

It has a perfect  texture – not too soft but at the same time not chalky at all. Plus, it is very precise and sharp, so you can get the thinnest line possible. As for the colour, you get two shades: Dawn and Dusk. Here is how they are described, and I would agree: “The Dawn shade has

REN Rosa Centifolia No1 Purity Cleansing Balm

I wanted to get this cleanser, you know how much I love my cleansing balms, for some time already and finally bought it in August. And it is absolutely amazing, I love everything about it ! Will write a detailed review soon, I promise.

REN Omega 3 Night Repair Serum

Another REN product which I have already included in a favourites before and wrote about earlier.  It literally saved my face after an almost three day car journey (not sure if I will ever repeat that again, but there are a lot of benefits in travelling by car).  It does wonders to my skin, I tell you. I wake up with a glowing complexion, without any dryness or irritation. I am definitely re-purchasing it in the future, as  I refuse to be without this product! Holy Grail, for sure.

Avene  Very High Protection Emulsion 50+

I really dislike most facial sunscreens as I find mots of them greasy, plus they tend to break me out (and, yes, I do cleanse properly).  But this time I’ve decided to try

I’d definitely get a ‘Soft Brunette’ when I finish my Benefit’s one.

I have also spotted some new brushes and
