Empties and Used – Part 2 of 2

O_O I forgot to publish this! This should have been posted Tuesday last week. Oh well, I’ll just leave this as it is. Read on and enjoy. 😛

Whew, I’m so full! Boyfran and I just finished dinner at TAT Japanese Restaurant and we’re chillin’ at their smoking area. I think I might fall asleep, but it’s best to start this blog post instead. I haven’t been posting lately since I haven’t been buying new makeup. The last were those bargain Paul & Joe I bought last December. I do not hoard as much as other beauty bloggers, but I still end up buying more than I need at the moment or just out of want. Also, my interest with journals and drawing are taking a huge chunk of my monthly salary. =_= There’s some makeup I so want to get like the Clinique Chubby Sticks and Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eyeliner. But, damn, I gotta use up what I have first. I don’t want them to get spoilt and end up wasting money.

Anyway, here’s the second batch of empties and used for the first quarter of this year. This may be longer than the previous.

Lip Smacker Skittles in Mango Peach Flavor, Flip Gloss Shimmer in Grape Gusher and Watermelon Wave, and Lotta Luv’s DQ Lip Balm in Hot Fudge Sundae

Lip Smacker and Lotta Luv

I love Lip Smackers even if they may be kiddie-like for some… Or most. 😛 They do moisturize my lips for hours and I enjoy the big variety of flavors available. Expect to see more when I make any more empties posts since I hoardedhave many of them. I

Lip Smacker Flip Gloss Shimmer in Grape Gusher

Grape Gusher was a big favorite of mine. I wish I hoarded these flip-type lip balms, but they were expensive for me since I was a student then and I had to survive with only my allowance. I thought I threw this flip balm many years ago, but it turns out I still had it when I cleaned out one of my drawers. (Yeah, there were parts of my drawers that I do not touch for years. LOL. That shall be remedied since my goals included using up hoarded beauty products as well as organizing my rooms.) Anyway, this was a favorite because it was tinted. It packed more color on my lips than my Clinique Almost Lipstick in Spicy Honey did. Watermelon Wave was just the second favorite. And Lotta Luv’s DQ Lip Balm in Hot Fudge Sundae… Hmm, chocolate flavored lip balm… Who wouldn’t like that? 😀

Jergens Original Scent – Dry Skin Moisturizer

Jergens Original Scent

This took me a very long time to use up. I did empty this even though it didn’t really provide moisture and 24-hour softness for my skin as expected. My mom has been using this and other of Jergens products (and probably still is), so I’m assuming Jergens work for her. Just not for me. My skin don’t get flaky or anything as bad, but just really dry that I usually need to apply hand cream every 30 minutes to an hour.

Veet Bladeless Kit
Veet Rasera Bladeless Kit

This came with a hair removal gel that’s been gone to the bin ages ago. How I used the Veet Rasera Bladeless Kit was slathering the hair removal gel on my legs and removing the hair with the bladeless ‘razors’ before I do my shower. The gel residue has to be washed off.

Foundation/Concealer containers and sample scents

Containers and Sample Scents 20150316_035727

I’m throwing the containers away because the green one has hardened foundation and the white got cracked from whatever I put in there for an unknown reason. :/ Well, I have a lot of these stored so it’s fine. The sample scents, on the other hand, are from Estee Lauder, Azzaro9, and the rest I forgot. 😛

Estee Lauder Graphic Color EyeShadow in Enigmatic Khaki-04-Light

Estee Lauder Graphic Color Eye Shadow 001

Estee Lauder Graphic Color Eye Shadow 002

My eyeshadow for that no-makeup make-up look or when I only need to stay indoors, but still have to entertain people like visiting friends or bandmates coming over for band practice. I dropped it and the pressed eyeshadow broke to dust. Bummer, I really liked this.

Victoria’s Secret Garden in Secret Crush Body Lotion

Victoria's Secret Garden in Secret Crush

Moisturizes my skin all day. The sexy, womanly scent (that’s so not for me) even stays hours on which keeps me from having to spray on a body mist again or several times in a day. I checked the website of Victoria’s Secret and it looks very different now. Idk if the smell is different too.

Olay Natural White

Olay Natural White 001

Olay Natural White 002

Olay Natural White 003

My next favorite to Clinique for my nightly moisturizer and works the same as Olay White Radiance. My mom introduced me to this product. It brightened my skin, got rid of any spots and other discoloration, and I’ve had lesser breakouts. This will always be an option whenever I’m out of moisturizers.

Other items in my empties bag that I’ve already reviewed:
Care Bears Friend Bear Lip Balm
Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom — That in my empties bag has a better bottle 😛
Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Mist
Missha Finish Pressed Powder
Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Loose Powder in Translucent Light
Playboy Play It Lovely…
Sally Hansen Nail Polish Remover
Victoria’s Secret Ultra-Moisturizing Hand and Body Cream

This Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 shall have a separate review post. It’s one of my ultimate favorite skin care product. This used bottle is just among many others. 🙂

Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2

I also had a packaging of a Lip Smacker in Dr. Pepper flavor, but the lip balm is gone.

So that’s about all that was in my empties bag, I guess. I’m done with my empties and used for the initial quarter of the year. Can you believe I finished this post three days after since I started? LOLOL Our dinner was last Saturday night and it’s already Tuesday! ^^;;;
