March Empties

Hey everyone, welcome back to styledbymckenz! In January I shared my first ever empties post of all the products I used up throughout the month and my honest opinion/review on all the products. I got such positive feedback and finished so many products this month that I figured, why not do another one?! Alright, before I start to ramble let’s get on into it.

March Empties

 

I finished up quite the stash of body products as you can tell. This is probably my fourth set of Warm Vanilla Sugar lotion and perfume. It is my absolute favorite scent because it’s not to perfume-y, I will definitely be repurchasing this set again. I use Bath & Body Works body washes all the time, however I wasn’t in love with this scent ( A Thousnad Wishes) so I probably will not repurchase this one again. I also finished the 3 Minute Miracle hair mask from Aussie. This was my fifth time finishing a bottle and I will most definitely repurchase this again. It is such a life saver for dry, brittle hair!

Product: Bath & Body Works A Thousand Wishes Body Wash

March Empties

I also finished quite a few makeup products this month. First, is the only brush cleaner I have ever used. I find that it works well but nothing about it screams ‘amazing’ to me. I also finished the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara which is my favorite affordable mascara because it lengthens and volumizes at the same time, plus at $5 it cannot be beat. I also finished the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and have already repurchased it. It is the best drugstore concealer because it covers literally everything. Lip products are something I absolutely never finish but this month I finished two; a Stila Lipgloss that is super sticky but was the prettiest color and a Buxom lipstick. I received this as a sample on Black Friday two years ago and used it at least once a week from then on. It is the perfect color and I will be repurchasing this in the full size as soon as possible. I also used the Elf Natural Lash Kit at formal last weekend. I love their lashes but the glue is awfu. I would highly suggest getting a different lash glue when using their lashes.

Product: Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner

February Empties

Hey everyone, welcome back to styledbymckenz! Last month I shared my first ever empties post of all the products I used up throughout the month and my honest opinion/review on all the products I got such positive feedback and finished so many products this month that I figured, why not do another one?! Alright, before I start to ramble let’s get on into it.

img_5688This month I finished up all of my holiday scents from Bath&Body Works that were sitting around my bathroom. I usually love all of their products around the holidays but didn’t love the scent of the lotion and felt that Vanilla Bean Noel was too strong of a scent in the wallflower form. I loved their soap and body wash as per usual.

Product: Vanilla Bean Noel Shower Gel
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: yes

Product: Tis the Season Hand Soap
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: yes

Product: Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte Body Lotion
Stars: 2/5
Repurchase: no

Product: Vanilla Bean Noel Wallflower
Stars: 3/5
Repurchase: Would purchase the original Vanilla instead.

It’s very rare that I ever finish makeup products it seems like since I am constantly rotating the products I use. However, this month was an exception as I finished several face products and cleared out a good chunk of my stash. Almost all of these were repurchases and I was hardly disappointed by any of them. Although, the Elf primer seemed to not do as good of a job when I used it everyday consecutively so I switched it up regularly with other primers. And I do not feel the Maybelline Age Rewind deserves the amount of hype it gets, although it is very good.

Product: Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: yes, already have

Product: Maybelline Matte Fit Me Foundation
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: yes, already have

Product: Elf Mineralized Face Primer

Stars: 4.5/5
Repurchase: yes, *lighter consistency than Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

Product: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer
Stars: 4.5/5
Repurchase: yes

IMG_5687.JPGLastly,  have a couple random products. I do not typically have a deodorant preference so it doesn’t really matter to me what I use. The Dove Dry Shampoo was fairly good for the price, it is much cheaper than the Batiste dry shampoo. My only complaint would be the strong smell, however I have found that every dry shampoo has a smell that I am not too fond of.

Product: Degree Motor Sense Deodorant
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: yes

Product: Dove Volume Dry Shampoo
Stars: 4/5
Repurchase: yes

January Empties

Hey, friends! Recently I have been loving watching empties videos and reading empties posts. I find that seeing what people have used up recently and hearing their thoughts about those products is so intriguing for some odd reason. Please tell me I’m not the only one that finds pleasure in ‘trash’!? Anyways, here I am today sharing with you what I finished up this month. Enjoy!

As far as shampoo and conditioner go, I almost never use the same one twice. I am constantly changing up what I use and it takes me forever to finish hair products. I recently finished up a couple products from Suave and was super pleased with how soft my hair was after it had been washed and how replenished it felt. My only complaint for this product is I am not in love with the smell, otherwise I would give it five stars.

Product: Suave Sea Mineral Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner
Stars: 4.5/5
Repurchase: Yes

This Biore face wash is beaded and leaves your skin feeling super clean. It has a minty feeling to it and I found that although it didn’t necessarily getting rid of breakouts, it did a fairly good job at preventing them. This Cetaphil moisturizer is one of my favorites. It is very thick and not meant to be used before applying makeup. After the shower and before bed are my favorite times to use this product.

Product: Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: Yes

Product: Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: Yes

For makeup related products, this month I finished the Great Lash Mascara from Maybelline. I love the ‘Blackest Black’ formula of this product as I find it lengthens and volumes my lashes best. If you’ve ever been around to my blog before you would know that any day I wear eyeshadow I wear the Maybelline Color Tattoo in ‘Barely Branded’. This is my third one and I am obsessed. One pot typically lasts me a year or so, so considering I wear eyeshadow about five times a week for an average of 44 weeks out of the year, I use this product at least 220 times per pot. Seriously, best product ever if you’re looking to step your makeup game up to the next level!!! Micellar Water is the absolute best at removing makeup. Squirt the tiniest bit on a cotton round and you would be amazed that all your makeup comes off just like that.

Product: Maybelline Color Tattoo – ‘Barely Branded’
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: Yes, already have!

Product: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Of course I couldn’t forget about the random products I seem to finish every few months. As many of you know, I am a cheerleader so the Got2B Glued hairspray is an essential hair product for me. It seriously holds anything. The typical nail polish remover; this one was so stubborn and made removing polishes a tedious task. As for shaving cream, whatever my mom buys I will use. Scent or brand doesn’t typically matter to me. And mouth wash; as you can tell Madison and I have been working on this bottle of Crest for quite some time now.

Product: Got2B Glued Blasting Freeze Spray
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: Yes- a must have for cheerleaders!

Product: Up and Up Nail Polish Remover
Stars: 1/5
Repurchase: No

Product: Skintimate Skin Therapy Shaving Cream
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: Yes

Product: Crest Pro Health Mouth Wash
Stars: 4.5/5
Repurchase: Yes
