November 2013 Empties Post!

10 Dec

So sorry this is late.  I took the pictures ages ago, but I haven’t been able to do a complete post.

Ok, so here we go…this is a smaller post than my previous months.

wpid-PhotoGrid_1386517729529.jpg

1) Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab imps in the following scents: Pool of Tears, The Sea Foams Milk, Vinland

I liked Pool of Tears. It was from the Alice in Wonderland collection.  The scent was nice and light and pretty.

The Sea Foams Milk was okay, it was from the Fairy Tale collection

Vinland was bolder and sweeter, and I don’t think it’s available for sale anymore because I can’t find it on their website.

I love BPAL, but none of these scents were a super win for me.

2) Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lip and Cheek Color in Flirty Kiss.  I only used this for my lips and I really really really like it.  I inherited two of these from two Birchbox friends in two different colors.  I love the texture and love the colors.  Will repurchase.

3) Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream.  I really liked this at first. Sadly, I am allergic to most SPF products, chemical and mineral alike.  This mineral SPF product eventually started to give me the telltale milia break out.

BUT, I really recommend it to someone who doesn’t have the allergy problem.  It’s a great summertime product when you are looking to lighten your foundation routine.

4) Bio Oil.  There is some hype around this product.  It is a mixture of oils including a synthetic form of an oil normally found in water fowl.  This doesn’t have the best smell, but it does moisturize and heal really dry skin in a few weeks.  I think they ask to give it at least a month or so of continuous use.

I’ve used it on my face without issues, especially around my eyes.  And I love it for my feet.  Will I repurchase this?  Most likely.

5) 100% Pure Pomegranate Nourishing Body Cream.  I love this line, I love these lotions.  Yes, will repurchase for summer.  I need something heaver for the Winter months.

6) Bath and Body Works Paris Amour Hand Sanitizer. Smells so sweet and pretty. I always keep one of these in my purse because I am a germaphobe.

7) Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Gothic.  I love this for summer, and the color is a true red without blue undertones.  Looks like blood, it’s perfect.

8) be Delectable from Cake Beauty Strawberry & Cream Hand Cream.  This was in my Ipsy from November (I think).  I went through it pretty fast, but I have dry hands.  This smells SO AMAZING.  Not the best moisturizing for Winter, but would probably work for the warmer months.

I’m sort of bummed I only used 8 products in November!

What were some of your empties/faves?

October Empties 2 – I use a lot of stuff!

5 Nov

2013-11-02 17.41.02

Just so I can be like everyone else in the beauty blogging world, I’m going to do an Empties post monthly.  Here are the things I used up in October.

Picture1

I had to Google to check if Benefit even still makes Maybe Baby perfume…and they do!  It used to be one of my absolute favorites.  So light and floral.  I finally finished this bottle I’ve had for ages, and I’m thinking I want to repurchase.

Ponds – meh…Some people are crazy in love with this.  I couldn’t use it as a  cleanser, and yes I tried the hot wet towel trick.  I would sometimes use it as eye make up remover.  But I don’t think I will repurchase this for the third time. I still have one pot of it at my parents’ house that I use.

Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Spot is so good on the blackheads on my nose. It does dry me out after a few uses, so I won’t repurchase for the Winter.  We’ll see how my skin behaves come Spring.

Maybelline Mastershape was not a win for me.   The color was Auburn, but it was super light, and I couldn’t get it to blend with my black eye brows.

They’re Real by Benefit is one of my favorites right now.  I have a second trial size, and will probably buy a full size in time.

Matrix Vavoom is amazing.  One of my favorite hairsprays.

Bio Silk smells so great, and I like both the shampoo and conditioner.  I frequently repurchase both.

Got2B 4ever Stylestay is great for updos or for spraying your hair while wearing it back.  It is a stiff hold.

I’m finally retiring my Sephora Perfectionist Sponge. We reviewed a lot of sponges here and here.  This is still one of my favorites.

Bath and Body Words body lotion in Pink Chiffon.  It smells like flowers and candy to me.  I kept this in my purse, and B&BW makes such great lotions.  These always get repurchased.

So that’s it for October!

What were some of your favorites or non fave items?

New Fave and Dupe: Suave Naturals Body Wash! Bath and Body Works Dupe!

17 Sep

I’m so crazy about this scent right now!!  It’s from the Suave Naturals line.  This retails for under $4.00 USD.

The scent reminds me of the Sweet Pea from Bath and Body Works.  I only used the BBW lotion, not the wash so I can’t compare its staying power.  However, the scents are very similar out of the bottle.  Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea Shower Gel is $11.00 USD.

It smells so fresh and summery!  It will probably be my last summer scent I use for the Season. Sort of sad because I love summer so much, but it’s also fun to try new products.

Why I like it:

1) fragrance is so nice

2) it lathers really well

3) it’s very inexpensive

4) it can be used for shaving

Have you used any Suave bath products?  What did you think?

First Empties Post!

16 Aug

All the beauty bloggers and vloggers always do an Empties post, so why shouldn’t Your Fairy Godmother.

We use stuff too 🙂

I have two (yes TWO) Dr. Who lunchboxes because I am a fanatic.  As you know, one is my mani kit, and the other is my Empties kit.

I will admit, I got really excited when I finally had enough empties to do post.  On first glance, I use a lot of lotion.

Yeah, I went there….because this movie is freaking fantastical!

Ok, so let’s see what I used 😉

Julep Beach Tonic was probably my favorite item from my Empties.  I loved this smell and it was so perfect for summer.

100% Pure as my second fave, and I loved this scent for night time.  It was Coconut, and it was so light and relaxing.

Bath and  Body Works in Rasberry.  So yummy and perfect for spring and summer. I layered it with the corresponding body spray  .

Mountain Ocean Skin Trip was another organic lotion in Coconut.  It was nice, but too light for my dry skin.

2013-08-15 09.23.09 (1)

Apotheke Coconut Jasmine Perfumed After Bath Tonic.  This paired nicely with my coconut scented lotions.  I guess I really liked coconut this summer!

2013-08-15 18.28.19

Argan Oils Face & Body Serum.   I wanted to use this on my face, but ended up allergic.  So I used it on my hair and it seemed to really moisturize it during the winter. I will probably repurchase this again.

And I retired a pair of fake lashes.  I think I wore them since New Years Eve, it was time for a new pair sometime in April.
Elf Lashes for $1.00!!!!!   Seriously.  Go.Get.You.Some.  I know we blogged about these before.  They are so good.
What products have you used up lately????
