2014 Empties #3

Hello again readers!

So this is the last empties post of 2014! Out with the old, in with the new, and this time around, there is a LOT of stuff that's going. I recently went through my entire collection, and got rid of the products that were too old to use (even by my standards) so I went ahead and got rid of them. I also finished a lot too (mostly lipsticks) because I wanted them gone. 

Asterisks are products that I would repurchase, or have backups of already.

 Finesse ReVitality Volumize and Correct Conditioner - Empty*
Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Texturizing Shampoo - Empty*
April Vanilla Brown Sugar Body Wash  - Empty*
Skin Milk Shower Gel - Empty*
Eucerin Skin Calming Lotion - Empty
Bath and Body Works Vampire Blood Hand Sanitizer - Empty* :( I'm sad because I went to stock up on this particular scent, and I missed out this year. Hopefully they'll bring the plum scent sometime in the near future... Sugar Plum works for now.
Crest Toothpastes - Empty
Degree Fresh Deoderant - Empty. I figured out that deodorants that cater to females just don't work for me. They're not strong enough. Such a shame, because they have some amazing scents that I now miss out on. Boo.

 Apricot Face Scrub - Empty*
Cetaphil Daily Cleanser - Empty
Sea Breeze Facial Wash - Empty*
Neutrogena Foaming Face Wash - Empty
Equate Daily Face Wash - Empty
ELF Daily Brush Cleaner - Empty*
Botanical Choice Charcoal Nose Pore Strips - Empty
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes - Empty*

Face Products

 Revlon Nearly Naked Ivory Foundation - Depotted
L'Oreal True Match Alabaster Foundatin - Depotted
Neutrogena Skin Clearing Foundation - Classic Ivory - Empty
Aziza Buff Beige Liquid Foundation - Old*
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer - Empty
Obscure Blush Brush - It's falling apart it needed to go. 
ELF HD Setting Powder - Empty*
Physicians Formula Healthy Wear Translucent Light Foundation - Empty
Wet n Wild Fergie Take on the Day Mattifying Powder - Empty. It still has a teeny bit of product left, but I hated this powder so much it wasn't even worth it.
Maybelling Fit Me Concealer in Light - Old. It's such a shame that these don't come a bit lighter, because they are AMAZING concealers, and this concealer did wonders, but it was too dark for me, and oxidized darker. What a shame. 
L'Oreal True Match Compact in Alabaster - Old. I have had this for YEARS. I am completely ashamed.
ELF Eyebrow Kit in Medium - Old*

Isn't this just the most satisfying sight?

Lip Products
Milani Color Statment Lipstick in Fruit Punch, Uptown Mauve, and Best Red - Empty
NYX Butter Lipstick in Lollies - Empty
ELF Blackberry Creme Soothing Lip Balm - Empty
ELF Essential Lipstick in Fantasy - Broken
Nivea A Kiss of Mint & Minerals, and Milk & Honey - Empty
Revlon Creamsicle Lip Butter - Empty
Wet n Wild Fuchsia with Blue Pearl Lipstick - Old
Wet n Wild Megalast Sugar Plum Fairy and (not pictured) Cherry Bomb - Old**
Wet n Wild Megalast Vamp it Up - Empty*
BlackHeart Beauty Pink and Purple Lip Palette - Old. It had mold when I got it and I swatched it anyway and it was not worth my time at all.
ELF Heartbreaker Lip Stain - Just awful
ELF Matte Lip Color in Coral - Empty
Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Black Lipgloss - Old. Old as balls. I've had this forever and I should be ashamed all over again.
ELF Balm Stain - Berry and Grapefruit - Old* I love Grapefruit, so I'm going to pick that one up again, but I'm passing on Berry. I'm just not a big red fan anymore.

Primers and Bases

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Sky Blue, Black Bean, and Milk - Old. So old that they have separated and caused the plastic packaging to bubble. Incredibly alarming. I have jumbo pencils that I find to be easier to use, so I'll use those instead.
Wet n Wild Fergie Take on the Day Shimmer Primer - Old. Not bad for a shimmery primer, but I don't use shadows that I want to amplify that often, and I'd rather use my Barely Branded Color Tattoo in place of this. Not a bad product though, just not the perfect fit for me.
Wet n Wild Fergie Take on the Day Primer - Old. * I know not everyone likes this one, but I do. It works really well on my lids. I might pick up another tube, but not in the near future since I have some other tubes I need to work on first.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance - Empty.* I thought I'd like this more, and I just didn't. It's really misleading, because the packaging sucks up so much air when you're using it, so you can't really tell for sure when you're going to run out (I even used a toothpaste squeezy) until nothing else comes out. I have a little sample of this primer as a backup.
Urban Decay Primer Potion - Empty.* I liked this primer, but it's not one that I NEED to have. I have a sample though.
ELF Eyelid Primer - Empty* I have others on hand that I can use, and I like it for whenever I really want to amp up swatches so they have something tackier to cling to, but I'm over it for my own lids. I have better primers out there, and I don't mind the extra splurge on them.

Eye Products

Covergirl Shimmering Onyx Eyeshadow Single - Old.
Wet n Wild Panther Eyeshadow Single - Old. * Whenever I run out of my other matte black, I want to get this one again. A great matte black, and for only a couple bucks. You can't go wrong and i lasts you forever.
Jordana Easy Liner in Denim Blue, Blue Devine, and Black - Old
Jordana Fabuliner in Brown and Black - Old
Wet n Wild Coloricon Eyeliner in Boysenberry - Old
ELF Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Midnight - Empty, or at least dried up like a desert.
ELF Liquid Eyeliner in Black, Silver, and Copper - Old. * I do have a backup of black, it's not bad for a liquid liner, but it's sure as hell not waterproof. I'd pass on the others, since they're not my style. 
L.A.Colors. Eyeliner/Eyebrow Pencils - Old
NYX Extreme Blue Studio Liquid Liner - Old*


Maybelline Great Lash - I see Blue - Old. If I could, I would get another tube of this. I really like how it looks on my lashes, but my best best is at Big Lots or something. I can try!
Jordana Best Lenth Extreme - Old. Compared to the Best Lash Extreme, all of their other mascaras are just damn disappointing.
Rimmel London Scandaleyes Lycra Flex - Old. I liked this mascara at first, but it just didn't wow me. It got clumpy and the wand is ginormous.
Rimmel London Extra POP Lash - Old. Comic Sans. Really? The colors looked pretty great, but as a black mascara this was mediocre. It just coated the lashes, and though the colors could get by, this one just didn't make the cut. It was basic.
Sally Girl Bright Mascara Red - Old. I will miss these, because red mascara is such an odd thing to have and I liked wearing red lashes. They were really great for 50 cents a piece though!
ELF Black Glitter Mascara - God awful. In the tube it looks like magical unicorn tears, and on the lashes (or as a liner) it's nothing but disappointment. Hard. Crusty. Crumbly. Not something you want around your eyes. Ever.
CK One Mascara - Old. I got this as the free gift for my birthday and I hated it. It flaked like crazy, and the wand (though hella cool and serves a purpose) just didn't do it for me. The packaging is pretty awkward looking too. Not my cup of tea.
Physicians Formula Organic Wear Mascara - God awful. This mascara was a complete trainwreck for me. The first time I put it on, I loved it. It looked phenominal, my lashes looked so fluffy and amazing, and then within an our it flaked off onto my undereye area and my cheeks and disappeared. It really hated me, and I hated it too. The feeling was mutual.

I gotta say, I am SO glad I got rid of a lot of this stuff. There's other things I purged too, and put into my giveaway bin for my friends to go through at their leisure but they were still usable with some sanitizing. Having all of these things out of my collection is like a breath of fresh air, and makes room for new things to come into play so I can have space for them. 2015, here I come!

Thanks for reading!
