November Empties

This month’s empties contain some makeup items, but I still think it’s a bit of a cheat. There is only 1 skin care item in this month’s post, and I have a feeling I won’t have any empties to post soon.


I’ve reviewed Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex here. It was sad to see it go because of the hefty price tag for repurchasing. Darn my skin and its expensive taste. Not doing my wallet any good.

I haven’t talked about this before, but Bobbi Brown makes a pretty good conditioning brush cleanser. This tube has been with me for 2 years and I’m only using it up now. You squeeze some of this clear liquid into a cup, fill in some water, swirl your dirty brushes in there, rinse them with clean water and voila! Clean brushes with really soft hair. It is good for brushes with natural hair, those you use for powder products. I’m afraid this isn’t strong enough for your foundation or concealer brushes.

The Eyeko Grafitti Eyeliner Pen was good while it lasted. I didn’t use it for a few months, and when I decided to use it again, it dried on me. Dry like a desert, but it’s been more than a year. It was good to know you!

The gold tube of Lunasol Treatment Mascara Base is good stuff. While it conditions lashes, it does great things to short fine Asian lashes. It adds volume and length, so any crappy mascara you use later does a magnificent job. However, it is rather pricey, so I’ll just look for a more affordable base. This stayed with me for about a year already, so it’s time to go.

The L’Oreal mascara has also outlived its life span. It’s been with me for more than 6 months already, so it’s time to go. It has dried up a little and I find I have to do a lot more to get it to work. I’m too lazy for that. Next please!

What have you used up this month?
