Empties #29// Glossier, Bleach London, Mary Quant, Becca etc

 A flatlay of empty beauty products from brands including Bleach London, Glossier, Mary Quant and Becca

Hiii gang! I hope you're all ok! I'm still doing nothing but work, basically....

I will get back into creating *content * but for now, here are some more empties:


Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser// I liked it, this was nice. But, I have lots of other cleansers to get through before I even consider if I want to repurchase. I get the hype though.

No7 Hydraluminous Water Surge Gel// This was actually my second pot of this and I loved it! I'm currently trying another cream in this range but I think I will go back and get this exact one again- this was perfect for where my skin is now- dry but also very prone to breakouts.

Soap and Glory body cream// This was nice and moisturising, but a very strong scent for me tbh.

Mary Quant Lip Bouncer// Lovely. It's a bit more expensive than good old vaseline, but I liked this and will definitely get another one after I've used up a few more older lip balms. It's light but hydrating and also makes your lipstick last longer, what's not to like? 

Lush Peony// This was a lil sample and it smelt gorgeous and was super moisturising. 

No7 protect and perfect primer// I got this in the summer gift set, and it was nice but quite thick.

Haircare // 

Bleach Total Bleach// I like this, it's always a repeat-buy for me. This or the plex bleach, depending on how I'm feeling.

Bleach London White Heat// I tried this out finally, and it is a lovely last step to get white hair. I didn't want to like it cos it's an extra step after bleach and toner, but I do. I will probably pick this up again at some point but I have lots of other colours to try out first!

Bleach London Beer Mask and Reincarnation Mask// you guys know I love these, what can I say. I alternate these every time I wash my hair, and I've bought each several times. And you know what? I did experiment with another mask I had, and my hair hated it.... so I'm sticking with what I know and love for hair care. If it aint broke don't fix it I say!

Bleach London Pearlescent Conditioner// as regular readers will know, I'm a big fan of the pearlescent shampoo and conditioner. I want to try the pearlescent toner too.

Clinique High Impact Mascara// I like this a lot, and it had got to the point where it was super done. I have another one that's from the advent calendar to use up, along with my fave MQ Billion Lashings.

Clinique High Impact in black// This was nice- smooth and creamy and lasted pretty well for me. I got it in an advent calendar for 2020 and I used it no problem. 

Becca tinted lip balm in Rose// Becca the brand has gone, but I saw this in T K Maxx and thought I'd try it, along with a red lipstick. The lipstick is nice, but this tinted balm I was not a fan of. It went waaay darker pink than it looks in the tube, and it had sort of scratchy glitter in and it wasn't that hydrating either. I used it up quickly to get rid of it tbh.

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo// I actually didn't finish it, but I decided it had to go because it was years old and past its best. I was half heartedly trying to use it up, but there's so much in there and it just wasn't my favourite. I'm not really a liquid lip gal tbh so I wouldn't get this again although I did get lots of compliments on the colour.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent// It's called transparent, but it does have a bit of an orange tinge on me if I use too much. I much prefer the version of this with the green bottom- the complexion clarifying one. The actual powder in both is pretty good for the price, but I haaate the packaging- it always breaks on me even when I am careful not to take it anywhere. I've finished it and I've got the Laura Mercier loose powder in translucent for now, and I think I prefer that finish on my skin (unfortunately, seeing as it's much more expensive...). I think Rimmel have a new pressed powder with a different packaging which I wouldn't rule out, cos my main gripe with this is the packaging. 

Thanks for reading! Have you used up any makeup recently? Or had anything exciting happen?
