empties may


Guuuys! I finally accumulated enough empty stuff to put in a post. It took me quite a while because I kinda automatically throw empty stuff out immediately after it gets used up. I really had to reprogram my brain to not do that, haha. So what is this ‘empties‘ kinda post anyway? It’s pretty straight forward, you just show your used up products on the blog, comment on how you liked it and if you are going to repurchase it or not. I for one like to see what other bloggers actually use up so I’ve been wanting to do this myself for quite a while. Enough rambling,lets take a look at those empties!


empties may 2



As you can see it’s mostly eye products and face products. It’s one of the few things that I actually manage to use up: the base products. I don’t think I’ll ever finish an eyeshadow or a lipstick because I got tons of those, but base products are things that I just buy one of.


empties face products



First we have the Mac Pro Longwear Concealer. It lasted me for a good while and I love it a lot. I already bought a second bottle so you can safely say that I’m a big fan! The only minor thing that I don’t like is that it’s quite tricky to see how much product is left in the bottle. I unexpectedly ran out, so that’s no good! Next is the Paula’s Choice tinted moisturiser. If you follow me for a good while you will now that I love it to bits. This is my third tube now so yes, again a big fan! Next is a bit of a unique one because it’s the first time I ever used up a foundation! The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum is my absolute favourite foundation for taking pictures. Will I repurchase? I’m not sure because there is a new version out of the Healthy Mix, so I’m trying to decide between the two. Either way, it will be a Healthy Mix something foundation ;).


empties cleansers



Here we see the famous Bioderma Sensibio H2O micelle solution. I’ve gone through quite some bottles and I just bought a new one. It’s still my absolute favourite make-up remover because it’s light and gives a clean feeling. I will keep buying this over and over again! Then we see a travel sized bottle of the Make-Up Forever Sens’Eyes. I never used a separate cleanser for eye make-up but this might be one of my favourites out there. It’s good at removing anything, even waterproof mascara and it’s great for people wearing contact lenses. I’m not sure if I will buy a full size, I love it but am still contemplating about this one.


empties eye products



Here we have the eye products. First you see the Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base. I’ve bought this countless times, I will keep buying it and I actually can’t live without it any more. It makes such a huge difference for my eye lashes so I keep stocking up on these. Then we have a mini size version of the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I love this, it lasts a good while but the packaging is a bit of an issue. I got this together with an Urban Decay palette. I have a new tube waiting for me in the new packaging that came with a palette. Depending on that I might repurchase but right now I have still my Too Face Shadow Insurance going strong! Next to it we have the Gosh brow gel. It’s pretty simple and straight forward. It’s in a clear shade and it does its job just great. I already repurchased this and I will most probably keep buying this. Then we have the Max Factor False Lash Effect in the non-waterproof version. I normally don’t like non-waterproof mascara but this one is an exception. I already repurchased it and I defintely will keep buying these!

Bonus pic! What is this grubby thing you are showing us? Well, it’s the only powder product I’ve ever hit pan on and it’s the Mac Sculpting Powder in Bone Beige. I have this thing for aaaaages and I hit pan on this a while ago. I think it will last me a good while though. It’s pretty amazing how long this is going, I use it every time I do my make-up so this is impressive in my books! I will buy it again if I’m out because it’s the perfect contour shade on my skin tone.


And that’s it folks! I hope you enjoyed this, now you can see what I actually finish! Please do share your empties with me, I’d love to know all about it! Have a great Sunday y’all!

  1. goed bezig! lekker veel opgemaakt :d

  2. wow so many makeup items! how impressive :) Good job!!

  3. Yay for empties and here’s to more empties post to come! They are so satisfying. It’s like, hey, I buy them but I also use them. HAHA!

  4. Best jammer dat ze allemaal op zijn als ze juist zo geweldig zijn allemaal. Bij het zien van je lege Maxfactor mascara herinnerde ik me dat ik zo’n mascara (de calories waterproof versie) hier heb liggen. Eigenlijk gekocht omdat jij er zo enthousiast over was =]

  5. Leuke post! Je hebt erg mooie en fijne producten opgemaakt :-)

  6. Oh, interesting to hear about the Shiseido lash base! I’ve been curious about it!

    • It is amazing! It will help hold the curl of your lashes, so that’s why I can’t live without it!

  7. Superleuke post! Ik ben ook empties aan’t sparen, maar heb er bijlange nog niet zoveel!

  8. Wow 3 bottles of the Paula’s Choice tinted moisturizer?! Now I’m intrigued. Must put this on my wishlist now.

    • Yeah, I love it that much! It has such a good finish, it’s not obvious on the skin and it feels light!

  9. Some of my favourites there! :) I love MF mascaras and my favourite is actually the False Lash Effect 24 Hour (non-wp) one — please give it a shot if you spot it :)

    • Oh really? Okay, I will definitely try this one next! And yeah, Max Factor makes some amazing mascaras!

  10. Love a good empties post! I never save mine either, maybe I should start. A really good indicator of wether or not a product is good is a repurchase!

    • Yes! Just keep a little box or a bag around and keep it all in there. And reprogram your brain to not throw it away :p.

  11. You will love that new Healthy Mix, Teri! Definitely give it a try :)

  12. Great job Teri! And YAY to hitting pan on the powder! I finally hit pan on a couple of things too and it feels great! It’s the little things LOL.

    • Haha, right on Tracey! I see the pan circle becoming bigger every month, it’s pretty exciting to be able to finish a powder like that!

  13. Fijne spulletjes heb je opgemaakt! Ik ben ook benieuwd naar die nieuwe Healthy Mix. :-)

  14. Those are a lot of empties! I mostly finish/toss mascara, but I’m also halfway through a lot of foundations & have finished a powder plus almost finished a second of the same powder – Guerlain’s illuminating/mattifying, I love it so. I finish lots of skincare though, I’m quite loyal to the things I love.

    • Oh yeah, I can actually finish a lot of skin care too! I still have a bottle of foundation waiting for me and I’m still not even half way through my Chanel powder!

  15. Yay! I *love* empties posts. I’ve had my eye on bone beige… now I feel a little bit more justified in wanting. Just, I want to do some drilling down to make an empty of my own before I purchase it :)

    Thanks for the post!

    • Good luck Vanessa! I kinda love that satisfying feeling when something gets used up ^^. And bone beige is great! Perfect match on me and very buildable!

  16. De Max Factor mascara en Bioderma reiniger zijn hier ook grote favoriet !

  17. Mooie producten heb je opgemaakt! Ik hou van Paula’s Choice producten, dus misschien dat ik dat product ook nog wel een keer wil proberen :)

    • Zeker doen! Je kunt een staaltje vragen met de kleur die je denkt die bij je past. Zo heb ik het getest en uiteindelijk een full-size product gekocht.

  18. Wheee good job, Teri! I don’t think I’ve ever hit pan on anything, though I do finish Bioderma, mascara, primer, and so on :p I just don’t collect the bottles because they all end up looking really dirty and I can’t stand that!

    • Just wash them :p. And yeah, I’ll never run out of Bioderma, mascara primers ever! I would feel so lost without :p.

  19. Yaay for empties! Wow, I didn’t realize that was your third bottle of the tinted moisturizer–I remember you raving about it in your review but I didn’t know you loved it THAT much. Now, that makes me REALLY want to try it even more! haha! I will definitely have to look into that!

    • Yes, do it! It’s just a really great one, the ingredients are nice too and I just love the feel of it on the skin ^^.

  20. Lekker veel opgemaakt ;3

  21. I see two of my favorite products in there: The UD primer potion, and MAC’s Pro Longwear Concealer :-) I already have back ups of those two.

  22. Ik vond dat ook een rare gedachte, om eerst je leeggoed nog eens bij te houden om dan aan de mensen te laten zien. Maar nu zit het er wel in, ik heb een vast zakje waar ik mijn lege verpakkingen in gooi.

    Als mijn Healthy Mix Serum op is, ga ik ook voor die nieuwe Healthy Mix, ben er benieuwd naar!

    • Hehe, hier ook ze, ik vergat het telkens! Maar het is heel erg leuk om te zien wat je zoal opgebruikt over een bepaalde tijd. Het is ergens wel satisfying ^^. En ja, die nieuwe versie is heel tempting!

  23. Ik ben ook al door ettelijke halve liter flessen van Bioderma gegaan, love that stuff!

  24. amai :) proficiat. ik maak echt nooit iets op xD

  25. I’m interested in trying the Paula’s Choice Sheer Tint. What shade of Bourjois and Paula’s Choice Sheer Tint do you use? Thanks!

    • In bourjois terms I’m 53, it’s a slightly yellow toned shade which works perfectly on my skin. In Paula’s Choice shade I am sheer fair. Again a great colour match. It’s pretty forgiving in colour so I think it will suit a lot of skin tones tbh. Hope this helps!
