"empties" (rubbish) #2

Aloe Lip Care from The Body Shop. This lip balm is very very good and I have nothing bad to say about it. I think it is better than Nuxe Reve de Miel (audience gasps). The only reason I haven't immediately repurchased it is because I want to finish up a few more Body Shop things and then I can do a big order with some sort of online discount code.
On the subject of lip balm, can you tell that I have a dog? I bought this at poundland during a particularly broke time in my life and it was very good and fine. The reason I prefer the Aloe one if that this gives stingy lips, which can be distracting when you're trying to get to sleep, so it only works during the day.
Although this eye cream was a sample, I'm including it because it lasted for about nine months. I also finished the Superfacialist Neroli eye cream but I accidentally threw it in the bin because I forgot that I was taking photos of my rubbish nowadays (sorry). To be honest, every eye cream I've ever tried seems to be the same, that is to say alright. 
Finished the Dr. Jart Waterfuse BB Cream. My emotions about this went up and down, but overall I do think I liked it. The thing is, it claims to be really moisturising, but I found it looked really bad over dry bits. So it only works sometimes for me. At the moment I'm really over wearing anything on my skin except concealer where I need it. I like the look of a bare face as opposed to a "bare face". But if I ever want a light-base-with-spf product again, I probably would get this. If you do want to buy it, wait until Boots do the one-third-off premium skincare that they do a couple of times a year. Then it ends up costing £12 for 50ml, and "cheap" BB creams are usually around £8 for 30ml, so it works out and you'll get a much better product for your $$$. #tips
I'm throwing away this Seventeen On the Spot concealer because it's nearly done and I think it's gone wrong. This is a bit of a weird thing. I did find a way to use it that I like, which was applying it on bare skin with a fluffy brush and not wearing anything else over it. It doesn't have very much coverage and I think it only comes in the shade medium, which is a bit dark and a bit grey toned. Won't repurchase because it's not a necessary thing in my life.
This is a very gross Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, it isn't finished but it needs to go because it is old and possibly rancid. I'm not buying this again. It covers up all your problems, but it comes at a cost: the problem area is replaced by lifeless, matte, clay-like skin. It's a personal preference, but I'd prefer to accept the blemish and look like a human being. 
Finally, here are two mascaras, which in all honestly were almost exactly the same. All the L'oreal waterproof mascaras are very good if you like that sort of thing, but for right now I'm more into wearing a cheap (£1) brown mascara so it looks like I'm not wearing mascara but I'm just a pretty princess naturally. But if I do decided I want some serious spiky lashes in the future, I'd go for one of these (probs the False Lash Telescopic, bc the ad campaign for the Miss Manga really annoyed me for no reason).

I don't know if this is boring or good or what. I like doing them so I can talk about what I like and don't with a sense of purpose, also I enjoy documenting the finishing of things because it's important to celebrate every accomplishment in life. I guess if you think these are boring then don't read them? I don't really know who is reading this anyway apart from Lil (hi Lil), and myself, and I might as well do what I like right? BYE X
