I love Empties #3: Part 2 - Makeup

So finally, here is the second installment on the products that I've used up between 2011 till start of the year. I've noticed that I used fairly a small bit of makeup which is pretty disappointing for myself as it means that I will not be able to purchase more anytime soon.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - LightI really really enjoyed this product. The texture is smooth and refined, blending into my skin effortlessly. If I were to repurchase a new face powder from MAC, this is definitely my goto product to purchase. It provides coverage yet it doesn't look cakey at all. See my full review here.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid - NC 20
A product which I really enjoyed. I like the yellow undertone and how it matches my Asian skintone perfectly. However, after I ventured deeper into the foundation realm, I have discovered other brands which work even better (In my dictionary, it translates to, longer lasting). That said, I still think this is a very good product to try out if 12-hour makeup is not a criteria for your foundation of choice.

ELF Studio Concealer Pencil & Brush
I'm not entirely sure whether this is still available on ELF's website, however, if you are searching for an on-the-go spot concealer, definitely give this a try! Full review can be read here.

ELF Essential Tone Correcting Concealer
Another affordable ELF product that costs only $1. Apart from the attractive price, I really do not recommend this product as it is too sheer and doesn't provide the coverage a concealer should.

ELF Essential Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Gel
Awesome product for $1. Totally recommend and does a good job keeping my brows in place! I think for the price, you definitely can't beat that, enuf said..

Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner
I used to really like this product due to the easy application, affordable price, staying power and pigmentation. However, the one thing I absolutely hate about it is that it stings my eyes!!! For my take on drugstores liquid eyeliners, read here.  

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder
I think everyone should have this powder in your collection. Hands down love this, best drugstore powder I've tried so far! Read here and here for my thoughts on the product. To give you an idea on how much I enjoyed it, I'm on my second product now. =) A rare occasion for a makeup hoarder..

Another upcoming post on hair products that I've used up will be up soon. In the meantime, have a good week!



  1. I can't believe you have used so many makeup products, I only use mascara every other month and I'm so proud of myself! Aww!

  2. ahh so rewarding hitting pan and seeing empties - kind of makes us feel 'less bad' when we buy even more new products hehe =)

  3. lol I think the same as you! I wish I wud use up products faster so I could buy more!!

  4. Good achievement in using up all those products! Definitely something I should focus more on, rather than continuing to buy more. I have that Rimmel eyeliner, it's not my favourite and I agree, it's quite harsh on the eyes :\ I've heard so many good things about the Maybelline Dream Matte powder, need to try out that one! (But first, finish up some stuff :p)

  5. oo me too. It is just so hard. I am going to try this summer!!!
