March Empties

Happy April Fool’s Day!

I want to start April by leaving some old stuff behind. I used up quite a few things since the last Empties post, and I want to share with you. There are a few makeup items I devoured – pretty happy there! So, let’s start with makeup πŸ™‚


empties makeup

Out of the 5 items shown here, all are eye products except one. I actually used up a lip product. Such a feat I tell you! I have been talking a lot about the Lunasol Full Glamour Liquid Lips, and I have finally used the last drop. Next please! You can see 2 brow products here, one is a brow pencil by EmproΒ and another is a liquid brow pen by Suqqu. I have been enjoying my Empro brow pencils for a few years, and this is my 5th one, if I’m not mistaken. That was BEFORE I discovered Shu Uemura. While this brow pencil is good, I find it softer compared to Shu Uemura. This one feels more waxy while the Shu Uemura hard pencil fills in my brows in a more natural way.

The Suqqu liquid brow pen is a dream to work with. It is easy, soft and subtle, making it quite hard to go wrong, really. However, it dries up rather quickly, making it a hefty investment. I might have bought it for GBP20, which is equivalent to RM100. While the effect is pretty good, I don’t think it’s worth the price. There are others out there which do just as well, with a lower price tag. The mini mascara from Dior is a gift and it’s a Diorshow mascara. It volumises amazingly, and after 3 months of use, it’s time to say bye bye. I don’t grow attached to any mascaras and while this has been great to my lashes, I am now enjoying others which are good too. Last but not least, my eye liner duo by Urban Decay. It came with the Naked palette that I got nearly 2 years ago. It has served me well. Both shades Zero and Whiskey are very versatile.


skincare empties


I have talked about all these skincare products before.

Kiehl’s UV Defense (This is actually my second tube. However, now I find it a little too moisturizing compared to Shiseido UV Perfect which is so comfortable on my skin)

Dior Capture Totale Eyes EssentialΒ (I use this under my eye cream. I’m still using this. My HG!)

Kanebo Lip FreshΒ (Don’t know about repurchasing. Probably won’t)

Clarins White Plus Intensive Whitening Smoothing SerumΒ (It was a duo and I’m half way through the second bottle!)


Are there any items you used up recently?

  • It not April here yet, but I am now just realizing it is April Fools Day! Good job on all the empties, I’m almost out of my night cream, I wa using one from Clarins, I’m not sure if I will repurchase.. I am so curious to try other products, but it has worked well for me.

    • Yup, it’s April already! I like to try new creams too, and I do blame my curiosity. What do you feel like trying? I think you should go for a new one. Lol!

  • April!!! Crazy. anyway, great job on your empties!!

    • Thanks Joyce. I feel a sense of achievement! πŸ˜›

  • Lovely amount of empties!! Speaking of which… I have to get down to doing mine! =D xx

    • I know. I’m quite proud of myself! Hehe

  • Wheee so many empties! Well done, Lily! Now I’m curious about the Shu brow pencil, though I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my Hourglass one! I’m very close to finishing my tube of Caudalie Vinosource Quenching Sorbet, and I just used up my second (50ml) bottle of Pai cleanser a couple of days ago (ordered a third one already). That’s all I can think of for the moment πŸ™‚

    • I’ve been wanting to write about the Shu brow pencil… oh, you’re going through your skincare really fast there! I remember reading you write about your Pai cleanser not that long ago πŸ™‚

  • Way to go, Lily! I’m debating whether I want to keep posting empties, since I feel like they become really long posts, lol! But it is a nice feeling of accomplishment πŸ˜€

    • Long post? You must have lots of empties! But seriously, I could finish that lip gloss because of you. When you posted the empty orange pareo, I really wanted to try it myself too! Lol!

  • Liz

    This is a really nice round of empties – mostly full of good, quality products that seem to agree with you. I’d like to get there and stop wasting my time experimenting crap items, but it’s a vicious, endless cycle. πŸ˜€

    • You’re right. A good one this time, and they are mostly good πŸ™‚ I tend to sway though… there’s no such thing as “good enough”. Hahaha!
