Empties Galore End of 2017 - Part 1

I haven't done a post in forever and my empties are piling up something fierce. I've decided to break them up into two parts for now. This will be Part 1 of course. Many are the usual suspects. Let's jump in.

Shiseido Facial Cotton This was my third bag. Is this expensive? Yes. Is it worth it, actually yes! I would buy this again and again. No other cotton pad compares.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Light This needs no introduction for any of you who read my blog. Another one done. Repurchased of course times two.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara The one and only smudge proof mascara. This is my "work" mascara as it does the job and lasts all day but doesn't give me as much "va-voom" as other mascaras. Already repurchased.

Origins yet again. Plantscription serum. I have been using this for years and I really like it. Seems to be keeping the fine lines at bay. Will be repurchased very soon as I have tried another Origins serum and it was no where near as good. Review on that to follow.

Beautyblender This was my fourth beauty blender. It's done. Can't live without this now. (review here)

Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser I quite like this product. This was my second tube and I have already repurchased #3. (review here)

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day I am not sure what number this is. I find this product lasts me forever. Also, I have had a number of sample tubes I've been using. Already repurchased. I have said it before and I will say it again, if you only purchase one new hair product this year make it this one. (review here)

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara  Wasn't a fan. Found it a tad dry and it smudged even when not wearing glasses. Length and volume was meh. Will not repurchase. Got this in a set of Smashbox products awhile back.

Clinique Repairwear Intensive Night Cream I dare not tell you how long I have had this night cream. In my defense I had it unopened in my stash for ages before I opened it and decided to use it. It wasn't bad. I wouldn't say I loved it, but it was decent night cream. I would not be disappointed if another one fell into my hands.

Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion Total side note, I have a guy friend who calls this product line Bumble and Grumble (yet he uses their products!). This was the newer version of this product and it was much better than the older one that was a pure salt bath for your hair. My bottle shown is only the small version. I will repurchase the full sized version. Sadly, I have bought a couple of sorry imitations in other brands recently and I may use those up first.

Verb Leave-In Mist I have mixed feelings about this one but overall it's good. Best to read my review. (review here)

Tata Harper Clarifying Moisturizer I quite liked this product but it is so damn expensive I can't justify buying it unless I get it during a Sephora sale. Maybe one day I will pull the trigger but in the meantime I will wait.

Lise Watier Eyeshadow in 117 Ecru Mat I had this eyeshadow forever. It became a mission to use it up and I did. It had good payoff but I wasn't madly in love with it. Will not repurchase.

Ok, that's it for Part 1! I have 2 mascara reviews I will try to get up in the next week and also Part 2 of this Empties post. Stay warm everyone, it's freezing where I am!
