Empty Products #1

I'm a bit obsessed with YouTube and watch a number of different beauty vloggers who have all done these kind of "empty" videos. I thought the concept was pretty cool; a bunch of mini reviews all in one video (or post in this case) after using up the entire product. So, I'll try to keep these reviews short & sweet! I do love most of these products, but there are a few that I won't be rushing to repurchase.

This stuff is awesome. It's very inexpensive & definitely keeps you from looking oily throughout the day. I think I'll be purchasing a different powder before I go back to this one, but it's become a favorite of mine.

I asked for this perfume 2 years ago for Christmas without ever smelling it, partially because I adore Taylor Swift, but I just knew that I'd love it. It is a very sweet perfume, but I tend to like those kind of scents. I do get compliments whenever I wear this one! Her new perfume is coming out very, very soon, so I'll be buying that one before I go back to Wonderstruck.

Granted, this probably doesn't have the best ingredients for your hair, but I absolutely love Herbal Essences. I've had several other of their shampoos, but I think this one is my favorite. It's a great price, it does the job, and the scent lingers in your hair all day. As far as fixing split ends, it doesn't remedy them in any magical way. I do love what this does for my hair though, and I'll be buying it again & again!

I know some people are obsessed with this product, but I wasn't very impressed with it. I didn't see it do anything amazing for my hair, and I ended up just using it as extra conditioner for my ends every now and then. I think it is made by the same company as Herbal Essences (I could be completely wrong), & I think the Long Relationship Conditioner worked a lot better for me.

I think this scent has been discontinued, but I really wish they would bring it back! This is one of those fragrances that I use to wear in middle school & it smells so, so good. It takes me right back to those delightfully awkward days. It's a very soft and sweet scent, and I love it.

I've found that I really like pomegranate scented body wash & body spray, it's kind of odd to me. This scent is a little harder to come by than the other body sprays, but I think it is my favorite. It's fruity and fresh and perfect for summertime.

First, the name of this makes me giggle. Second, you may notice that there is some of the product left, but it's just gotten gloopy & nasty at this point. I think this was alright, I didn't really love it. If you have any recommendations for a good base or top coat, please let me know!

I love, love, love this concealer. It's easy to apply, it's light enough for me, and it's super creamy & blendable. I will say that it can crease a little bit, but it's still a product I'll repurchase over and over.

I've 3 different tubes of this-- two clear and one tinted. I wasn't a huge fan of the tinted one, but I love the clear version. I won't rush out to pick this up, but it does do a good job of hydrating. I love the scent of it as well. It does have a very glossy finish too, which is something you don't get in normal chapstick.

Let me know if you've tried out any of these products! Any recommendations for new ones?


  1. Love the Rimmel powder and the Taylor Swift perfume!

  2. We use the same shampoo!

    1. Haha, that's awesome! I really love that stuff!


Thank you, thank you, thank you for your sweet comments. I read every one and try to respond to them all!
