May 2020 Empties

We might have a few days left of the month, but Im ready to post my empties for May.

It was a great month for finishing things up for me. Last month I was able to finish $101.54 worth of product!!

My skin is still incredibly dry, which allowed me to really enjoy using up the samples from my recent skincare project and I was able to finish up one of my perfume samples this month.

I also finished my first full size mascara for this year. I opened it back in January when I got it in my Allure beauty box. I had only used samples of the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara prior and wanted to see if they were similar (many mascaras have an issue with this). The formula did seem similar to me.

March 2020 Empties and Declutter

What’s that phrase? March comes in like a lion? March has been a month, hasnt it?

Most of us havent been going anywhere or even wearing makeup, so its incredible that I finished anything this month.

I did manage to use up $122.91 worth of products! My 1st quarter empties total is $277.69!!

As you can see, I finished a few project pan items. I will be doing an update in a future post.

I am also decluttering 3 items.

Luckily, these items are only valued at about $8.

  • The Ipsy concealer has been making my skin dry out and thats saying something for someone like me with oily skin.
  • The Elf eyeliner runs so bad and I also was not aware that it was a blue liner until it ran so bad.
  • The Lancome eyeliner has dried out.

Were you able to finish anything this month?

February 2020 Empties

I did not use alot of products up this month. A lot of that has to do with my medical issues during the last week.

My skin was unusually dry so I used some really moisturizing sheet masks. One stand out was the Peach and Lilly sheet mask. I actually received this mask as a free sample! I received a set of Karuna sheet masks in my FabFitFun box and so far, Ive really enjoyed using them.

I did manage to use up $76!!

January 2020 Empties

I can hardly believe that we have finished a month into the new year already. I did not finish up a lot of products this month, but I managed to finish up some deluxe sized skincare and two perfume samples.

Since many of these products make regular appearances in my empties, I do not have much to say about any of these items that I havent said already.

This months empties total is $78.78

2019 Makeup Empties

For the past several years, I have been saving my empties to see how much I actually use up in a year. Its so surprising how long makeup can actually last, but its been interesting to see exactly what you use up in a year.

I set out to use up a lot of my foil samples (which I did not save) as well as several deluxe products. Some of those were years old.

One of the ‘resolutions’ was to wear perfume everyday. So imagine my surprise when I saw that I finished 33 perfume samples!!!

In total I managed to use up $1,419.50 in makeup, skincare and accessories!

How did you do finishing things up last year? Did you save your empties?

October 2019 Empties

It was a pretty slow month for empties, but I managed to finish a shampoo!

I love the ion shampoo but after using it for almost 3 years – IM DONE! This shampoo does nothing for my hair anymore so I am glad to be done with it. I worked thru my backups so there are no more. We still use the conditioner – and have two more full sized bottles left. I use the ion conditioner when I color my hair fun colors.

I also wanted to talk about the Givenchy Volume Disturbia mascara. I received this back in June from Influenster and fell in love with this! I kept it a month more than I should have because I loved it so much. Its $27 at Sephora and after I finish off what I have on hand I will purchase.

This months empties total is $68.07!!

Did you finish a lot of products in October?

August 2019 Empties

Somehow time is passing by and I realized I am WAY behind on posting. Again, we are nearly at the end of September and I havent even posted my empties for August.

It was another light month for empties.

This month I finished 6 perfume samples!

I finished my favorite cleanser as well as a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow stick -which were both in a recent project and a Lush soap bar.

This months empties total is $36.64!!
