Product Empties


Over the past few months I've been making myself use up all my nearly finished makeup and fragrances. I have a habit of not using up products and just opening new ones and then find myself with a makeup bag full of almost finished mascaras, powders and foundations.

1. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
This was a great foundation for the summer, it's light weight on the skin so didn't feel cakey even when applied over suncream. The foundation gives a light to medium coverage which is easily buildable. I wore it as a light coverage as I think it looks best when applied in a light layer on my skin. I don't think I would repurchase this because I have found other foundations now which I prefer but it is a good product and is very reasonably priced.

2. DKNY Be Delicious Fragrance
One of my all time favourite scents, I used to wear DKNY Be Delicious everyday until I discovered Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume. The scent is very fruity and sweet so if you are into sweet scents it would be ideal. It is more of a daytime/ summery perfume then one you would wear in the evening.

3. Miss Manga Mega Volume Mascara
I received this in a beauty box and at first I didn't really like the brush. Once I got the hang of using it however I found it was a really good mascara, it's great for building volume and giving length to lashes. I would repurchase this again because I was happy with the final effect. The product itself also lasted a long time without drying out in the tube.

4. Benefit They're Real Mascara
This is a cult product and the second tube I have used up. The formula of this mascara is great for giving length and volume to your lashes. There are two minor problems I find with this mascara the first is that it dries up quite quickly so I seem to always get through the tubes quickly, the second is that it is a pain to get off. You need a really good quality eye makeup remover to get it to even budge.

5. Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara
I was pleasantly surprised by this mascara. I haven't tried any other Clarins makeup products and only got this one because it came in a set I was given last christmas. The formula of the mascara is very wet and at first I found it hard to work with as I would just smudge it everywhere. But once I got used to it I found it was great for building length without clumping. The one thing you have to be careful with is not closing your eyes too much while applying your mascara because if its still wet it spreads all over your eye area and makes you resemble a panda.

Out of these three mascaras I would recommend the Clarins one. If you like super long but natural looking lashes its a winner. It is also easy to remove with eye makeup remover but won't smudge or come off throughout the day.
