MARCH Empties

Hello lovelies,

after a great February, here’s not so great March.

 

MAKE-UP

Guerlain Ombre Eclat 4 Couleurs Jeu de Nacres – I can’t believe I’ve finally managed to use up an eyeshadow palette. These Guerlain palettes are giant – each pan contains 1.5 grams (a size of an average full sized eyeshadow) so it is no wonder that it took me several years to finish it.

Oriflame Mono Eyeshadow Midnight Black – I didn’t actually use up this eyeshadow. It was sitting in my traincase and one day I went to find a lipstick and my hand was all black. Somehow this eyeshadow managed to shatter all over my traincase. Well, good riddance. It wasn’t a good eyeshadow – too much fallout and hard to blend.

 

FACE:

Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Cream for Face – I’ve already reviewed it and it is too greasy for my skin.

Sierra Bees Cocoa Butter lip balm – a nice lip balm.

Sisley Confort Extreme – surprisingly good moisturizer. I was afraid that it would be too greasy and too heavy for my skin, but it wasn’t. It sufficiently moisturized my face. However, I wouldn’t recommend it for a super dry skin.

Sisley Tropical Resins Mask – I’ve used up a full size recently and I think they reformulated it. This sample differed in consistency and smell to my old full size. The effect is, however, the same – the skin is clearer, but the results aren’t too dramatic.

Chanel Le Jour de Chanel – I’ll stick to my previous review – it sucks and I’m not impressed.

Bioderma Photoderm MAX SPF 50+ – sadly, it is too greasy. Otherwise, it is a good sunscreen, I’d just prefer if it had a formula of Photoderm AKN.

Eucerin Aquaporin Light – an ok lightweight moisturizer.

Nuxe Nirvanesque Light – even though the name says Light, it is actually pretty rich and moisturizing. I like it, although I’m not too fond of the scent. I might purchase the full size.

Eucerin Extra Light Sun Lotion SPF 30 – again, a good sunscreen, but slightly too greasy for my liking.

 

BODY

Oriflame Chocolate Dream Shower Gel – I really need to learn to stop buying “chocolate” scented shower gels, because the scent doesn’t even come close. It is actually very milky, creamy scent. Another minus is that I went through this rather fast. Usually 200ml shower gel lasts me for at least two months (I shower every day), but this one lasted less than a month.

Lavozon After-Sun Lotion – I had it in my drawer from the last summer. My sister bought it for a trip but ended up not using it, so I decided to finish it up. It is very light-weight, but doesn’t sink in quickly. Overall, I don’t really like it and I won’t repurchase.

Sisley Phyto Svelt Global – very overpriced and nothing special.

Caudalie Divine Oil – I had only a tiny 3ml sample, but so far I really like it as a hair and body oil. It smells divine. I have several more on the way, so I’ll be able to give a more in-depth review.

Sisley Soir de Lune Body Cream – a good cream, but I dislike the scent. Luckily, I think this one is the last one. Yay!

  1. Thank you for your comment :) It took me several years to finish it. From my experience, an eyeshadow is the hardest to use up. However, I hope you’ll succeed in making a dent on your eyeshadows.

  2. First time I comment on your blog! :-) Waw..I am really impressed you used up an entire palette!!! Congratulations! A few weeks ago, I decided for myself to start a project “make a dent” on a few eyeshadows.. I just dream about that!
