July Empties!

If you follow me on Instagram them some of you know I was doing a slightly different project 10 pan. I say slightly different because not shopping will never truly happen for me lol! So I decided to go through my stash and see what items I could try and put a dent in. Now I did use the ones I picked out almost everyday I got ready. But I of course didn't finish any of them because they were items I rarely used. But when putting together that project 10 pan it kind of turned into to like a project 25 pan LOL because I had items I wanted to try and actually get through and I actually succeed! Now I started my project 10 pan in June and kept all the packaging from the products I did finish and thanks to the lovely LeighAnnSays on Youtube I now have a title! EMPTIES! If you don't follow her your missing out she is so funny and a great youtuber!

                                                                  July Empties:

*John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Shampoo- Now I got this so long ago and I literally have a horrible habit of rotating shampoos and conditioners lol I buy more even though I don't need's madness! I store my unfinished ones in a cabinet in my bathroom and while looking through my stash I saw this and I remembered I loved the way it smelled and worked. So I pulled it out and after using it all up I want more lol! It is such a great shampoo and smells so good!

*Maybelline Lumi Pen Concealer in Nude Chair- Ok so I don't remember the exact name of this product as you can tell the printing on the packaging was horrible and everything started rubbing off the first day I got it...come on Maybelline if you want me to repurchase something put a sticker on it that says what it is because I am old and my memory isn't to great these days... Or at least invest in better printing lol! Other then that I loved the product. So using this up was not a problem at all. I don't think I will repurchase this just because I am loving my Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer so much.

*NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eye Shadow Base- I love this stuff. I went through it without even putting in effort really lol. As man bloggers have. I have a stash of deluxe samples (Thank you Sephora, BirchBox,& BeautyArmy!) So I figured this would be the first to use up. I love NARS products and this is no exception. Great primer! I am sure at one point or another I will get the full size. But yet again I have so many I really don't need it right now.

*Revlon Color Stay Base Coat- I love, love, love this base coat. I have a few other base coats OPI, Sally Hansen, Milani, and I still reached for this one all the time. I just love how well it holds on my nail polish. It's not to thin (like OPI) and Not to thick (like Milani's base coat) it is perfectly in the middle. So yes I will be repurchasing this. It only has some left in the bottle because it got tacky at the end and I have no clue why.

*Seche Vite- I love this top coat. I dries super fast, leaves a gorgeous shine and I used it so fast it was crazy. The only thing I hate is the fact that it did indeed finally get "goopy" lol There is no point in getting the restore (for this bottle) since there is such a small amount left I think I will pick that up as well when I pick up a new bottle though.

*Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Lotion- Now I did like this lotion for how well it worked but I wasn't to keen on the scent. It is an odd smell to me. But I happened to be having a break out when I started using this up and it worked wonderfully. It made my skin feel so soft and actually had a soothing effect on my skin. I won't repurchase it just because of the scent though.

*Beyonce Heat Rush- I love this perfume and used it like a mad women when I first got it. Then I started to ration it as I got towards the middle of the bottle lol. But I decided it was time to just use it up. So now I will be picking up a full size because I still love it!

*Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer- I love this lotion because it gives me such a nice slight tan. I have two of the travel sizes. I got through this one and half of my other one. The scent still has a hint of faux tanner lol but not to over powering. I don't know if everyone smells it or if it's just me because I know what fake tanner smells like. I will repurchase of course.

*Ojon Volume Advance Volumizing Shampoo- First things first I hate the smell of all Ojon hair products! lol Everything I have tried just does not smell good. I am a sucker for a good scent. But that being said it is a good shampoo. Here is the slight kicker. I got this in one of my BirchBoxes recently and I have taken the survey at the beginning when I signed up over a year and a half ago and I put I have thick, dry hair. Yet this shampoo is for FINE, LIMP, FLAT hair! I thought that was funny lol! I decided to use it anyways and will say it was nice but the scent just is to much for me so I won't be repurchasing it.

*Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Sleep Night Time Tea Lotion- This was my last bottle of this amazing lotion. I have a few saved from when they had a sale after Christmas. I can not wait until they bring it back because it is my all time favorite lotion. This time I will be hoarding this stuff! LOL

There are my Empties for the month of July! I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Now on to see what I can use up in August! LOL

Content & Pictures are mine. Please do not take.


  1. yeah my seche vite is looking low and starting to get goopy too, I've been thinking about trying out the sally hansen in the red bottle, they say it's pretty dang good. I use the brown John Frieda and it's good but now I'm using the Suave smooth one, I forget what it's called - VERY nice. I don't think I have empties at the moment, I threw out so much stuff in the move LOL

    1. Do you mean the suave Keratin one? My daughter has that one. Sally Hansen in the red bottle? I haven't ever seen it. Ohhh man now I must go look lol!I really need to stock up asap. Not having a great top coat is bumming me out lol

  2. NICE!!! I saw this & wanted to try to do it myself!!

  3. Ooh good job! I'm using that base coat and top coat at the moment. I really want to try that Maybelline concealer and the NARS primer. I totally get what you mean about not being able to not shop at all, haha. I've put myself on a "low-buy" rather than a no-buy.

    1. Ohhhhh a low buy is perfect! Yes I just can not stop LOL How are you liking the base coat. I swear you are the only other person I have seen use it other then myself.
