2014 Quarter 1 Empties

I took these photos nearing the end of March but didn’t get to post them. This is just a photo documentation for myself on the stuff I used up the first quarter of 2014. There were some I had to toss (last photo) because they were very likely expired but I’m also glad to see some variety here. Bath samples, lots of skincare, even a few makeup items that I used up. I even used up a perfume. I never had an empty perfume bottle! Now, back to collecting these empties for the second quarter!

I reviewed most of them, but if there’s anything you want me to talk about, let me know. I’m pretty happy to toss all of these into the bin! It was like a fresh start. So satisfying šŸ™‚

  • batiste review please! šŸ˜€ thanks love!!

    • Lily

      I’ll try šŸ™‚

  • Icaria

    Oh darn! I gotta get another EL Night Repair, I’ve been out for so long and love that stuff! Good job on all the empties! šŸ™‚

    • Lily

      I’m using another bottle of ANR already, but I ran out of back up!

    Wow you’ve used up lots of makeup! I havent had a makeup empty for ages, and if ever I do, it’s victory dance time! How did you find the Guerlain brightening line? I can’t remb if you’ve reviewed it before.

    Re: Bobbi skincare.
    I’ve most recently used up her brightening face wash, it cleaned well (no real brightening results), but I couldn’t stand the smell, so am glad thats over. Her cleansing oil I did like, but I have others I like better. One item I do love from her is her lip balm, in the metal tub. I have her lighter eye cream, which I use in winter. Overall her skincare tends to be too rich for my dehy-combi skin.

      Yeah, I reviewed the Guerlain brightening line. I actually liked it šŸ™‚ I love the soothing scent!

  • Ahhh you did well here! Nothing quite as satisfying blog-wise like throwing out empties šŸ™‚ Been collecting mine again too.. I’m hiding the bag in the storage room though!

    • Lily

      It is satisfying for sure!!

  • Great job, Lily! My bottle of ANR is nearing its end, too (already bought a new one mwahaha)! I also used up a mini mascara or two and yet another tube of the Dior lash primer recently.

    • Lily

      I really need to get a back up of my ANR. I’m already half way through my current one!

  • Liz

    That is a lot of skincare… and makeup! Good job, you. šŸ˜€

    • Lily

      Yup. Pats self on the back.. LOL!

  • Good job Lily!

    • Lily

      Thank you thank you!

    Congrats Lily!!! I use up skincare and haircare regularly,perfume from time to time, but apart from mascara and eye primer I never use up makeup. But my Nars Radiant Creamy Foundation compact is on its very last legs and I’ve already ordered the new one, so that’ll be my first!!

    • Lily

      I guess this empties post looks pretty epic – but they were all collected in 3 months

  • Damn! Look at that MSFN! You really got down with that pan! For a while I was sure I would hit pan on mine, but then I stupidly bought a different powder and fell madly in love with it and now it’s looking like pan will be hit on that first! I am proud of your empties, though it seems strange to feel that way! You are kicking serious tail on the skincare front, too! I usually get near the end of a bottle / tube and then my skin goes haywire, I give up, and it goes under the sink. I need to be more dedicated! Thanks for the inspo, yo! <3

    • Lily

      LOL! Took me a while to use up this MSF but it is my second one. I loved the first one, so bought another, but got distracted. Ah, such is life!

  • Lily

    Yes I do šŸ™‚
