July Empties!

I bought this.

July empties beautyjudy

Another month, another round of finished products!

My July empties are pretty focused on two types of product: Skincare and foundation! It’s all about the face this month!

Younique Mineral Touch Liquid Foundation in Scarlet

I bought this foundation a couple years ago, back when I sold Younique for like two minutes. It was so frustrating, because it was a new foundation, and it was CONSTANTLY out of stock. But it is a nice formula. It’s thin, liquidy, and a little goes a long way. It has a dropper in it, which I love/hate. It’s not the best at the end of the day, but when I use my mists and primers for mattifying it gets the job done.

Would I repurchase? Yes, but no need because I had a back-up and it’s back in rotation. I don’t think there are production issues anymore the way there were a couple years ago.

Duross & Langel Face Off Sulfate-Free Face Wash with Activated Charcoal

I love this face wash, it was refreshing and did a nice job. You can smell the charcoal in it, which adds a weird tone to the product, and sometimes I didn’t enjoy using it. I would hold my nose. I used it everyday, then slowed how often I used it. This was a travel size bottle. If I were to dive into this I’d pick up the full size bottle.

Would I repurchase? Maybe. But I’ve got so many other facial cleansers to get through I won’t for a while.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes

I kept these wipes in my purse to take care of shadow fall out or errant makeup on the go. I may have mentioned before, sometimes I do my eyes in the car before work since that’s the only time I get to do my makeup at times. So these came in handy!

Would I repurchase? Sure, but I just purchased a couple travel packs of the Neutrogena wipes so not for a little while.

Dove Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar

Do I need to talk about this one? Staple…good for body and face…I use one every month…

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation in Classic Ivory

I raved about this foundation in an earlier review post, and I meant it! This was good to the last drop. But I had to face the facts – I soaked all I could out of that cushion!

Would I repurchase? Yes. I have so many other foundations to get through, that I don’t know if I will immediately replace it or wait. If I’m going to buy a drugstore foundation, I kinda want to try L’Oreal Infalliable instead and see how that works. But yes, I would repurchase and it’s so convenient for traveling.

Garnier SkinActive Clean Soothing Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes – Sensitive Skin

I finished a package of these last month, as well. It’s been my makeup remover and general cleansing choice over the last month. Life’s been crazy and I’m grateful for wipes for those nights when I don’t feel like removing my makeup with cleanser and water – which seems to be every night!

Would I repurcahse? Yes, when I repurchased previously, I bought two or three packs.

    Good for you finishing these products! Garnier wipes and micellar waters have been rocking my world lately. My skin agrees with that formula so well that I bought 3 backups for each haha 🙂

      I’m glad to hear hat because I value and respect your skin care opinions!!!

  • FabZilla_Kath

    You sold Younique for like 2 minutes, you got me laughing there. Incidentally, I am wiping my face with makeup wipes as I read your makeup wipe empty, another smile on my face.

    • BeautyJudy

      Lol! Yes! I have to say I love the makeup hat Younique puts out but I discovered Jamberry shortly after and found myself very taken by it once I mastered it, and ended up focusing on selling that (mostly for he discount!). It’s been more than 1 1/2 years I e stuck with it so I think I made the right choice!

    I might try that Maybelline Cushion Foundation!

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s really nice for popping in your purse for touch ups!

    I’m using the Garnier Micellar Water right now and really liking it. I haven’t been using wipes but they might be in my future. The only soap I use on a regular basis is the Dove Sensitive Skin one since there’s no fragrance. My ob-gyn recommended it for lady parts too.

    • BeautyJudy

      That’s the Dove we fly through every month! It’s great! I really started using the sensitive skin when I was pregnant with my daughter – scents in the shower bothered me for the first trimester and it was all I could use. Thankfully it hasn’t been quite like that this pregnancy!

    I go through face wipes a lot. They are a staple for me.

    • BeautyJudy

      Ditto! I’m just so lazy at night, I’m terrible at a true routine!

    You did well! I should start doing empties posts. People like them and I’m just ignoring that.

    • BeautyJudy

      I started doing it because I love being a voyeur into what others finished, and have found it neat to see what I can kick in a month!

  • Jen Mathews

    I’ve never heard of Duross and Langel – where do you find it?

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    Great job! Good to hear that the Maybelline cushion is a really good one!

    • BeautyJudy

      Yes I enjoy it!

    You finished two whole foundations? Hats off to you! I wish I could use up some makeup instead of just skincare LOL.

    • BeautyJudy

      To be fair, I’ve had one for a while and I’ve had the cushion for several months! But foundation is my most-used beauty product, I think I’ve used up three or four total since January!
