Empties #19

Just before I left for my vacation in mid July, I cleaned out some of my makeup, so I got ton of stuff to throw away.
Here's the bunch with my mini reviews :)

Hair, body, face makeup, skincare & perfume
Girlz Only Dry Shampoo XXL Volume-Plus - it's quite good and very affordable dry shampoo that does it's job pretty well regarding making your hair look fresh and clean but I didn't see the XXL volumizing effect. Also it smelled sweet and floral. I would buy it again if I needed one quickly and there were no alternatives in the store ;)
Logona Lemon Balm Balance Shampoo - this is a natural product that's supposed to harmonise unbalanced scalp functions. I got it to tame my greasy roots but for some reason I didn't fall in love with it and didn't see great results. I know that switching to natural haircare takes time but I just didn't have the patience :)
Avon Senses Mood Therapy Revitalising shower gel with acai beer extract - typical body wash that smelled really, really good. Might repurchase when it's on sale again :)
Granny Agafia Body Scrub with buckwheat and milk - I bought this body scrub from my friends' mother who goes to Russia to get them. It smelled like fresh yoghurt and was nice on the skin but nothing that special to travel the world for it :)
Hydraluron - this is a facial moisture boosting serum that has hyaluronic acid in it. My skin loved it and it sank into it within seconds. Also great under makeup. Will definitely repurchase :)
Smashbox Photo Finish and Photo Finish UVA/UVB SPF 15 primer samples - I didn't see any results with these primers. They didn't reduce the appearance of my large pores and didn't keep my skin matte. Don't get what the hype is about :)
Comfort Zone Lip Blooming Scrub - it was so expensive when I bought it but it was literally the only lip scrub at that time in one of the largest department stores we have. And it was totally useless. I was so mad! Do not recommend it at all...
Oriflame The One Everlasting Foundation in Fair Nude - I was a nice foundation with light to medium coverage and if you set it with powder your face will stay matte for like half a day. Might repurchase :)
Giorgio Armani High Precision Retouch concealer in shade #3 - this concealer is more suitable for blemishes and not for under-eye area. I constantly struggle with finding a great under-eye concealer for my dark circles and unfortunately this one didn't do the job.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion sample in Sin - I love UD primer potions but this sample that I got with my Naked3 palette is just tooooooo metallic. It's more like a liquid eyeshadow than a primer.
Ralph by Ralph Lauren - I just love this perfume and would repurchase if I didn't have like 30 opened perfume bottles already. Very fresh and beautiful scent :)

Eyes, lips & nails
Essence Lash&Brow Gel Mascara - to be honest, I didn't like this product because it didn't keep my brow hairs in place. Still in search for a good clear brow gel...
MaxFactor Masterpiece Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising mascara - MaxFactor is fast becoming my favourite brand for mascara. It gives length and volume, curls my lashes and doesn't smudge. Also, I can wash most of it off with just warm water! Definitely a keeper :)
Bourjois Intuitive Liner - this is a 3-end felt-tip liner that is great to fill in the gaps between eyelashes and also for creating a nice thin line. Unfortunately they discontinued it... I just don't understand why Bourjois did that? I'm very upset that I can't get my hands on it anymore.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in shade 95 Creme Brûlée - I didn't like the shade and formula of this lip butter and I don't feel comfortable passing lip products on to my girlfriends so it finally went to the bin :)
Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Transferproof Lip Tint in shade 120 Timeless Tango - this lip products comes in a marker form and has a clear lip balm on the other end. It really stays on for hours but it made my lips sting so I wasn't comfortable using it. Bin material again :)
Oriflame Eternal Gloss in shade ??? - this lip gloss is very sticky but at the same time it stayed on for a very long time. The stickiness was a bit too much for me, so I know I won't be wearing it.
Manhattan Long Lasting Gloss Glide in shade 56G - didn't like the formula of this one also so it was just sitting in my drawer for ages. Now it was time to get rid of it.
Carlo di Roma PURE (black) and L'Oreal Color Riche gel nail polish in 508 Amazon Flower (lighter shade) and 607 Ruf Montmartre (darker shade) - they got old and thick so it was time to throw them away.
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat - the fastest drying top coat I've ever used which is my holy grail nail product. Unfortunately, once I use up about half a bottle, it becomes too thick to use anymore. Still my favourite and will definitely repurchase :)

Küsimus minu Eesti lugejatele:
kui paljud teist loevad blogi eesti keeles? Kas eesti-keelne tõlge on vajalik?
Kui enamik loeb blogi nagunii inglise keeles, siis kas piisab kui lisan postituse lõppu linke, mille kaudu tooteid Eestis osta või Eestisse tellida saab?
Loomulikult, kui eesti keeles lugejaid on enamus, lisan ka edaspidi igale postitusele eestikeelse teksti.



  1. Kas oled proovinud The Body Shopi brow geli? Soovitan seda proovida, minul hoidis kulmud terve päeva paigal 😊

  2. Selle Ralph Laureni pudeli vaatamine tekitas juba mõnusa nostalgia. Kasutasin seda kunagi ja siiani meeldib :)

    1. jaa, minul oli see ka väga pikka aega ja kohe kuidagi imelik on, et seda enam mu kollektsioonis pole :)
