My Beauty Empties Part 3

I love reading posts like this because they are a great source of information. I tend to keep using the same kinds of products because I hate the thought of spending money on products that I might not like. Posts like this give me the information that I need to decide whether or not I should try a new product. As you can see, I have already written 2 other posts like this – and there will probably be a whole lot more 😉

Verdict: This was the first time that I had tried out the Cala Beauty Sponge. It is a very reasonable price and worked really well. I found that it did not soak up a lot of the product and it blended my foundation beautifully.

Would I Repurchase? Yes. I have two other sponges that I want to try out but I would definitely repurchase this one.

Verdict: The Lux Sheer Twilight body wash smells amazing. It was amazing to use and left my skin smelling so good. I am not sure if it lasts 8 hours, like it says on the bottle, but it is definitely a good body wash to get. The Source Creamy Orchard and Warm Vanilla body wash is one of the best body washes that I have used. It smells amazing and you can still smell it hours later.

Would I Repurchase? I would definitely repurchase both of these.

Verdict: I have used this skincare collection for as long as I can remember. It smells amazing and works really well. I don’t really have any complaints with this at all.

Would I Repurchase? Possibly. I know that I have just sung its praises but I just found that my skin needed a change, after using one product for so long, so I am currently trying something new.

Verdict: This night cream works well and I used to use it all the time but I only really used this one because my other one was finished.

Would I Repurchase? Probably not. It is good but I have found another range that I prefer.

Verdict: The NYX Stay Matte but Not Flat foundation is the one I use every day. I love it. It blends well, is long lasting, and they actually have a shade that matches my skin tone which is a bonus. The Essence Winter? Wonderful! blush was gorgeous! I loved the colours and it worked so well on my skin. You can see what it used to look like here.

Would I Repurchase? Absolutely. I will be using this foundation for a while to come. As for the blush, it was part of a range so sadly it’s not that easy to get hold of anymore 🙁

Verdict: I know that there are a lot of lip balms to get through but just please be patient with me. The Oh So Heavenly bubble balm in Strawberry Smooch smells amazing and works well but it is not as moisturising as other lip balms. I think it is more about the novelty. Labello is pretty much a staple in my life. The Med Repair one works really well and also has SPF15 which is great! The Blistex Fruit Smoothies in Strawberry Banana and Melon Medley were amazing! They smell so good and work pretty well too.

Would I Repurchase? The Oh So Heavnely one I would probably buy again just to try out the new ones that they have. Labello will always be repurchased by me. As much as I would love to repurchase the Blistex Fruit Smoothies, I bought these in America and I have not seen them here so who knows.

    I have the cupcake version of the bubble balm. I prefer the normal stick lip balm, the bubble version makes me feel like I’m going to damage the balm everytime I close it.

      I definitely don’t think that it works as well but it sure looks pretty!

    I love these posts. Always helps me to also add things to my ‘must have’ list and my ‘maybe avoid’ list. Lol
