August Empties

Start of a new month, time to show you what I used up during the one just gone, August.


As you can see, not a great deal...



Katy Perry "Meow"- I'm not upset to see this alien cat go. It was a nice perfume, but I didn't love it. Repurchase? No, I'm glad to not have this cat stare at me from my dresser.

Skinn Eye Mask- The under eye area is so delicate, it's nice to be able to treat, nourish and hydrate the area. This mask did all that while providing a lovely soothing cooling effect.
Repurchase? I already have a back-up.

Lumiere "Wild Rose" Blush- This sample baggie of blush lasted for many uses. Being a dusty pink colour, I found that it gave a lovely rosy flush to my cheeks.
Repurchase? Lumiere no longer operates, however as nice as the blush was, it's not a unique colour. I know I'd have one similar in my collection.

Thierry Mugler "Angel Innocent"- I really like the original "Angel", as the name Innocent would suggest, this one is a lighter version.
Repurchase? I didn't love this sample enough to warrant a full size purchase. 

Halle Berry "Pure Orchid"- This celebrity fragrance is perfect for spring. It has floral and fruity notes and smells lovely.
Repurchase? I would actually buy a full sized bottle of this perfume if it offered better silage and lasted longer on me.


 Some unfinished items that have to go because they are unfortunately no longer quite right.


One of my goals is to finish more perfumes, so I'm glad that I am on my way to reducing my collection of full sized bottles of perfume to 5.

What's something in your beauty collection that you could do with less of?

    Currently I have a bit of a back log of half empty shampoo bottles that I am working my way through.

  3. Lol Indie thanks for the staring cat giggle - I've only ever tried Katy's ones in the pointy bottles, which annoy me 'cos they won't stand up, love what's in them though. I need to cull my single eye shadows - I have so many that I just look at when I'm after a particular colour, but I never ever use them so no point keeping them. I need the space! The Skinn mask sounds like a treat my peepers could do with ♡♡♡

    1. I have Killer Queen, and totally agree, the bottles are a pain! Getting rid of single eye shadows would be difficult, but I understand having so many items that are just not getting use. I'm sure you'll soon fill the space, lol xx
