Hi Everyone! Happy Friday! It’s so nice to be back for another edition of Five on Friday. On this occasion, I’ll be breaking down five makeup empties. I’ve talked about beauty empties before but not really any makeup empties. It’s so hard to get through certain makeup items. At least for me since I have enough makeup for 10 people. What I’m saying is – you should be impressed. If I used up an item, I must really like it.
+ It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream: Yes, let’s get it out of the way since I’ve talked about this 1,056,734 times on the blog. I’m obsessed, that’s clear given that I actually cut a corner of this tube to get the very last bit out. I’m on my fourth tube. I love it.
+ Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara: This is a solid drugstore mascara. I can’t really speak to any lash growing power but it’s good for separation and length. This is the kind of mascara that’s just easy for every day or limited makeup days. Plus it’s drugstore so it’s really affordable.
+ Rimmel Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liner in Enchantment: This is an automatic lip pencil in a mauve/pink shade. This particular color seemed to go with everything so I found myself using it pretty often. It works with nude, pink or even deep mauve/purple lipstick shades. It’s a nice lip liner formula and it’s $6.99. What’s not to like?
+ Colour Pop Kiddo Lippie Stix: This is probably my favorite lippie stix shade (and I have a lot of lippie stix’s!) Kiddo is one of the sheer formula lippie stix so it’s almost like a tinted lip balm. The shade is a nice warm nude and the formula is very moisturizing. I don’t need a mirror to apply it so it’s perfect to carry around in your purse for when you are out and about.
+ Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser: There’s a reason why this concealer is so popular. The formula is so thin so you wouldn’t think it would work as a concealer, but somehow it’s super brightening. It’s also a great price and from the drugstore. The only thing I don’t like is the little sponge applicator, but for the price I can get over it.
Is it weird I’m super proud of myself for using all of these up? Haha I’m sure some of you feel the same!
This weekend we have my company’s Holiday party and a friends birthday. I’m also hoping to clean out our closet to make room for all my cyber Monday purchases. Stay tuned for a super riveting weekend recap…
Have a great weekend!
