EMPTIES: January 2024

EMPTIES: January 2024


As you can see, I didn’t use up that many products in January that I did in the previous. So, keep reading for a quick run down and final thoughts on my empties from January 2024.

The first product is Ouidad Climate Control Spray to revive curls. I’m dedicated to repairing and strengthening my hair, which has me wearing my natural curls. I picked up this travel size of this product, because I needed a refresher spray for my curls. However, I’ve used OUIDAD products and even the shampoo and conditioner from this collection. So, I has high hopes in this spray and it did not disappoint. This spray revived and hydrated my curls without weighing them down. I buying the full size next time.

Last month, I mentioned how this SPF 30 version of Biore UV sunscreen was going to be in this month’s EMPTIES post. As I’ve previously mentioned, this a hydrating sunscreen that almost feels like applying a light moisturizer. I highly recommend this sunscreen for almost all skin types.

Finally, OUAI North Bondi perfume finally tapped out. Since I’ve been tapping more into floral scents, this turned out to be nice floral scent to test the waters. The thing about this scent is that I forget how much I love the way it smells until I smell it again. It’s a perfect blend of floral, musk and little bergamot and lemon. Honestly, those are some of my favorite notes for summer. Currently hoping I remember this the next time I looking to buy a scent in the summer.

Last month was a struggle to use up some products, especially makeup. The reason is due to my desire to wear less makeup when the weather begins to warm up. However, I was able to use up some products. I will admit that the reason that these products were used up is because they were products that I loved and used practically everyday. So, keep reading to see the list of items I recently used up that includes items you might’ve seen me write about on here or Instagram, plus a quick wrap-up/review of each products (if needed).

So, here are my recent beauty empties from April.

  • Maybelline Clear Great Lash Mascara – I’ve yet to find a brow gel that does what Maybelliene’s clear mascara does and I’ve kind of given up the hunt, because this one tames and hold my brows together all day. Added bonus, while using it to seal my brows, it picks up a little of my brow powder and gives it a brown tint for those days when only a quick swipe to my natural brows is needed. I love those days.
  • Make-Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation – I loved this foundation and it’s been added to my personal list of favorite foundations. It’s buildable, light, and creates a flawless finish. Plus, my oily/combo skin isn’t so noticeable oily. A definite win.
  • Almay Longwear and Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover – It’s hard to find a drugstore eye make-up remover this awesome. This remover from Almay gentle, but efficiently removes ever smudge of mascara (waterproof, too!) and eyeshadow on my sensitive eyes without irritating them.
  • Urban Decay All Night Setting Spray – I’ve never been one to root for setting sprays, but I feel like this one from Urban Decay is worth backing. I use it before and after applying my makeup and my makeup stayed all day with “rearranging” on my face throughout the day. I feel like I’ve been cheating myself by not buying and trying this years ago.
  • Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion “C” – Mario Badescu toners are bae! I’ve yet to use one of his toners and not love it and the Special Cleansing Lotion one was no exception. This formula is for acne-prone and oily skin, which made it perfect for me. When used in the morning and not, Iit leaves your skin feeling clean and refresh.

Stay Stylish!
