Empties #2

Greetings from the Dark Side!

I haven't finished many products in the past two months, and sometimes if I did, I threw away the packaging. But I have a few empties to share with you all~ I like doing this type of post because I can show you what I have used up, and also give you a mini review of the products :D

1. Gelous Nail Gel Coat
This is the product I use at my top coat. I used to use Seche Vite, but I think this product is much better. It has a very shiny and jelly finish. It is not the fastest drying top coat, but I prefer how it looks with this one. I especially recommend this for those time when you use glitter or anything that has a rough texture because this smooths it down really nicely! I already repurchased it :)

2. Artistry mascara
I used this mascara a lot in May. It has a really smash brush and the formula was neither too dry or too moist. It's not my favorite, but it was a good mascara, especially for the lower lashes. I would not repurchase it though, since it was not that great on my lashes. It did not give them a lot of length or volume.

3. Maybelline Illegal Length mascara
This mascara is good for everyday, not too dramatic lashes. It gave my lashes a lot more length, but it did lack in the volumizing department. This is not my favorite drugstore mascara, but I would repurchase it.

5.Revlon Precision Lash Glue
I LOVE this stuff! Best eye lash glue EVER. I hate DUO lash glue because of the smell, and this one has no smell. It also has a much better adhesion that the DUO glue. When I use this, my lashes stay put for hours! I already repurchased it~

6. Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream
This is my second tube of this BB cream, and I think it has already become an essential in my makeup collection. It is a really great BB  cream. It offers better coverage than most BB creams, but it is not as heavy as a foundation. This particular BB cream is also darker than most, since it looks a tiny bit dark on me. But regardless, the color blends in really well, so even if it's a little darker or a bit lighter it still looks fine. I will definitely repurchase this in the future (I have a few other foundations I want to use first). 

Pretty much all the products I used up are essential products I use all the time. I also used up some skin care and hair care products, but like I said, I threw away the packaging and I can't remember what it was that I used @_@ Hehe, my bad.

Have you tried any of these products? If you have, what do you think of them? If you haven't, would you like to try them?


  1. I've always wanted to try Lioele products, but always forget to stop by their counter when i'm anywhere near. >_< I like the pretty pink packaging, haha!

    1. You should~ I've only tried their BB cream, but is is really awesome :D

  2. Wow, a nail polish top coat! That's pretty awesome!! :) Yeah I like the Lioele BB cream as well =D

  3. omg, im trying to finish at least a foundation or bb cream. i love this post <3 thanks for sharing your thoughts on them <3

  4. I believe the green capped Gelous is technically a base coat, but I agree that it works wonders with glittery topcoats! I have been going through mine faster than I thought I would be, but I would much rather use that than have to use 4 coats of some other top coat. I cannot stand gritty nails! LOL!

    1. You're right! I don't like it as a base coat though. And yes! I worked wonders for those gritty polishes. I like my nails smooths ;D

  5. Thanks for the BB cream recommendation. There are so many on the market now a days that I don't know where to start.

  6. You got through loads! Hmm I have a tube of the Maybelline Illegal Lengths mascara that I haven't tried yet. Oddly the thing you don't like (no volume) actually sounds like it will really suit me! Can't wait to try it now :) x


Thank you for taking the time to comment <3 I appreciate every single comment I receive ^_^
