Beauty Empties & Reviews - November 2017

Hi Beauties!

Here's everything I finished up last month and mini-reviews of each item.

Hair Products

Neutrogena Clean Replenishing Moisturizing Conditioner
This wasn't a very moisturizing conditioner.  I had to use a ton of it to get my hair manageable.  I wouldn't repurchase.

Pantene Radiant Conditioner 
This was a decent conditioner and made my hair soft.  I can't say that it prevented my hair color from fading though.  I would repurchase if it was on sale and I had a coupon.

Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray
This is my all time favorite hair product.  It makes my hair shiny, soft, and lessens frizz.  It also lessens the time it takes to blow-dry my hair.  It's truly a miracle product and I am never without it!

Rin Ren Hair Pack
This is a Japanese hair mask.  It did make my hair really soft, but I still had a lot of frizz and I didn't love the scent as it was very herbal-y.  I wouldn't repurchase.

Body and Skincare Products

Murad Acne Body Wash
I don't get body acne but this was a good body wash.  I probably wouldn't repurchase as I like shower gels with stronger feminine scents.

Soap & Glory The Scrub of Your Life
This was an excellent exfoliating shower scrub in Soap & Glory's signature scent.  I would repurchase.

GlamGlow Super Mud Mask
This is my holy grail face mask.  It clears my skin and makes it bright and soft.  I always have at least one of these as a back-up in fact, I just opened a new one and have TWO as a back-up!  Ha!

KNC Beauty Collagen Infused Lip Mask
I got this in my recent Boxycharm box.  It didn't stay very well on my lips, it kept sliding down so I had to lie back for the entire 15-20 minutes.  I didn't really notice any benefit to my lips after using this.  I think it's a gimmick.  I wouldn't repurchase.

Sol de Janeiro Acai Body Cream
This was a good moisturizer but I didn't love the scent.  I'll stick with my favorite Bum Bum Cream from Sol de Janeiro.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Toner
I got several uses out of this sample and wasn't impressed.  As a toner I don't even think it did a good job of removing the last bits of my makeup.  I wouldn't repurchase.

GlamGlow Gravitymud Firming Treatment
This is a really cool silver peel-off mask.  It's fun to use but I don't notice any benefits to my skin afterwards so I wouldn't repurchase.

Sunday Riley CEO Rapid Flash Brightening Treatment
This was such a small sample that I couldn't really tell if it provided any brightening effect to my skin.  Luckily, I just got a full size in the Limited Edition Glossybox so I'll be able to really see if it works!


L'Oreal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray
I couldn't really tell if this made my makeup last longer so I wouldn't repurchase.  Not to mention, it's pretty expensive for a drugstore product so I'd just prefer to use the next product...

Model In a Bottle Makeup Setting Spray
This is the best makeup setting spray I've tried (yes, even better than Urban Decay).  The best part is that it's only $16 on Amazon.  It really makes my makeup look perfect for an entire day.  I have to warn you though that it does sting my eyes, so definitely close your eyes when spraying.  Also, the sprayer really sucks so I just transfer it into another bottle with a better sprayer.

YSL All Hours Foundation
I had 2 samples of this foundation so I was able to use it several times.  It has great coverage and lasts a long time.   I did like it a lot!  That said, since I compare all foundation to Double Wear, it's still not better than that, so I wouldn't purchase a full size.

Maybelline Pumped Up! Mascara 
This is my favorite drugstore mascara!  It makes my lashes long and voluminous!  Click the link above to see the mascara in action on my lashes.  I would repurchase.

Trish McEvoy Anti-Fatigue Moisturizer Enriched Primer and Mask
I used this as a primer and it wasn't my favorite.  I didn't really notice my foundation going on any smoother or lasting any longer.  I wouldn't repurchase.

Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner
This is an excellent drugstore liquid eyeliner!  It's just as good as high end brands like Kat Von D and Stila.  I would repurchase.

MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara
This mascara didn't do much for my lashes.  It barely looked like I had mascara on at all.  I wouldn't repurchase.

WOW, I went through a lot of this month!  Happy Holidays and New Year everyone!
