So with August over I want to share with you my empties from this month and tell you a bit about them, whether I liked each product and if I would repurchase. I like reading these posts because it is great to get a final verdict on a product rather than an opinion after a swatch or couple of days trial. So without further ado, here are my August empties!
First up is the Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir Eau de Parfum. I purchased this little gem in the Boots sale after Christmas, so I think I got the set half price, which was an absolute steal! I love the berry scent of this fragrance and I think it is a great every day kind of perfume that I wear to work and when I’m just out and about. I would definitely repurchase this either on sale or for the full retail price because I think the scent is gorgeous. I also love the packaging, the bottle is so girly and looks lovely displayed on a dressing table, so I will be sad to get rid of it now it is empty!
Next up is the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo cream. If you saw my previous blog post where I reviewed three wonderful products from the La Roche-Posay Effaclar range, you will know that I absolutely adore this product. It has done wonders for my skin and I think this will forever hold a place on my dressing table. I have already repurchased another tube so I can confirm this is a true favourite!
I have sadly hit the pan on a great little concealer from Seventeen, Phwoarr Paint. I use this concealer to hide dark circles under my eyes and for the price, I think it is pretty good. It is not as good as higher end concealers I have used, but I think it is a good dupe for Benefit’s Boi-ing Concealer. I have actually repurchased this concealer already as I think it is a fab budget beauty product.
I found this small sample pot of the Nivea Soft Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream hiding in the back of my bathroom cabinet a few weeks ago, I must have got it from a Nivea Set at some point, but I forgot just how much I love this moisturiser. It is a great multi-purpose product that can be used on the face, body and hands so would be the idea product to take on holiday or to a festival. The cream smells absolutely amazing and leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated. I am definitely going to pick up a full sized version next time I’m in town.
Lastly, I finished up MAC Fluidline in the shade Blacktrack this morning. This is my go to eye liner and I use it everyday. It is highly pigmented and I find it stays on all day due to the gel formula. As long as you use a good brush, the gel applies really smoothly and evenly on the lid. While this product lasts for ages, I do find that it starts to dry up a little bit over time, which is a shame. I’m not sure if gel liners from other higher end brands do the same, but I’d be interested in giving them a try. I have already repurchased this liner because I wear it every day and I hate risking that I might run out of an every day essential!
