October Empties


My first empties blog, I will have one per month. I will show and tell you the items I purchased and used up, and if I would repurchase them or not! 


Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo/Conditioner- I wasn't a big big fan of this shampoo and conditioner. One of the good things about this shampoo/conditioner was the smell, it was very pleasant and made your hair smell really good. Another good thing about it was it did keep my curls from being frizzy, that was a plus!! The reason I didn't care for this shampoo/conditioner and wont repurchase them is because they made my hair greasy. I have naturally curly hair so I don't shampoo it everyday to avoid making it even more dry. By the end of the first day my hair felt like it was greasy and had a waxy coating on it.

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum- I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS STUFF! I have been using this for over 3 years now. I use it in my daily hair routine. It helps keep my hair frizz free, smooth, conditioned, and smelling amazing. It is a serum so you have to be careful how much you are putting in your hair. I use a quarter size and I am applying it to wet hair. You could also run a little through dry hair to make it shine. This stuff is also great for straightening your hair. It makes the iron glide through your hair very well to avoid breaking/damage! I recommend this product 100%. The bottle last a long time and a little goes a long ways!

Bedhead Masterpiece Hairspray- Another product that I can't get enough of. This is a pink version for breast cancer awareness month. It is normally a blue can with a lime green nozzle. I have been using this on a off for about 2 years. It has a lovely smell, reminds me of strawberries! As soon as you spray it on your hair you can tell its doing its job and holding your hair in place! Another plus to this hairspray makes your hair shine! On the can it says MASSIVE SHINE HAIRSPRAY! I love this stuff, if you haven't found that perfect hairspray that works and smells good defiantly try this stuff!


Equate Ultra Soft Cloth Unscented Baby Wipes- These work great to take off your makeup at the end of day! Makeup remover can get expensive and sometimes be greasy. These are very inexpensive and you get 88 wipes. I normally try different baby wipes, name brand and house brand.

Cover Girl Line Blast Liner- I bought this awhile and it helps a lot of your trying to do a winged liner look. I never could quit master the liquid liner with the brush so this pen type tip helps a bunch! You have way more control with it. I probably will not buy this exact one again but I will try another pen type liner.

Maybelline The Classic Volume Express Mascara- I have repurchased this mascara quit a few times in the past. It has a curved brush that helps shape your eye lashes and adds nice curvature. The bristle is not plastic that's another reason I like it. It doesn't make the mascara get clumpy. It separates your lashes very well! 

E.L.F Eyelid Primer- This is CHEAP and it WORKS. It is only $1 at Target. I have oily skin and my eye shadow tends to crease from the oil on my eyelids. I apply this primer to my clean eyelids before I put any eye shadow on. My eye shadow last all day and looks as good as it did at 9 in the morning! You cant beat $1 so I would defiantly try this product and I will keep buying this product for sure!

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream- I bought this product in the shade medium sheer tint. This is a nice product because its like 8 things in one. Says it blurs imperfections, enhances, brightens, adjust to skin tone, smooths  hydrates, SPF 30, free of oils and other heavy ingredients. I liked this product because it was very light on my skin and made me feel like I didn't have any makeup on. Did it have a ton of coverage NO! I don't have the best skin so I need a product that hides my large pores and my outbreaks when I get them. This product was just a little to low coverage for me. The SPF is nice because its 30 so it is nice if your on vacation and don't want to wear a ton of makeup while going to the beach and you need a good SPF that wont clog your pores. If you have nice skin and completion this would probably be perfect for you if your looking for a nice moisturizer with a little bit of color.

Come back next month to see what I used up this month!!
