Mini-Review: March Empties

It’s been a good month of empties! I started spring cleaning early this year and started with my makeup stash. I actually ended up finishing eight products and this was written with a week to spare in the month. So I’ll cheat a bit and only detail five this month and leave the rest for April!

March Empties

MAC Liquid Liner in Boot Black

  • What is it? Classic black liquid eyeliner.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased.
  • First time or repeat? Repeat, probably by 4th or 5th tube.
  • Repurchase? This used to be HG eyeliner but I can’t see it beating Marc Jacobs Marc’er liner.

Bath & Body Works Shea Hand Cream in Black Amethyst 

  • What is it? One of my favorite hand cream formulas with a exotic scent. Doubles as a hair styling cream in your handbag.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased.
  • First time or repeat? First time in the Black Amethyst scent but repurchase of a hand cream.
  • Repurchase? Yes but I’m currently loving L’Occitane’s hand creams!

Benefit Gimme Brow

  • What is it? A brow mascara that darkens and enhances your brows. Read my full review here.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased.
  • First time or repeat? First time.
  • Repurchase? Definitely! Since it keeps going out of stock, I bought two backups.

NailStation Drop Dry

  • What is it? Fast-drying drops for your nails.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased.
  • First time or repeat? First time.
  • Repurchase? I’ve had this bottle for a few years now so I wonder if they even still sell it. I’m now trying a version from Zoya, which aren’t quite the same.

Bobbi Brown Extra Tinted Moisturizing Balm

  • What is it? Super-rich tinted moisturizer.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased.
  • First time or repeat? First time.
  • Repurchase? I bought this 4+ years ago upon the recommendation of the sales associate and really regretted it. It’s too greasy for my combination skin and the scent is quite strong. I only managed to empty this out thanks to the blog. Needless to say I won’t be repurchasing this.

I forced myself the Bobbi Brown moisturizer thanks to this series in the blog and found the MAC eyeliner while spring cleaning. So if you’re looking to make space, try spring cleaning your makeup stash first!
