Product Empties | Vlog

Happy Wednesday everyone!! I'm so excited for this post as it's my second product empties video! I had so much fun with the first video, that I've been keeping my used up products for the last few months and finally had enough for a video! I hope you all enjoy it and I've made sure to list out all the products mentioned with a quick synopsis of my thoughts that I shared in the video in case you aren't able to watch- but I hope you do! P.S. So sorry I said "product" like 100 times...
Products that have been used up



Olly Vitamin
I actually forgot to mention the name of this in the video but I love these multi vitamins! It totally helps that they are in a gummy form because I actually want to take them - careful because they taste like candy!! I'm currently on my 3rd bottle so it's safe to say I'm in love! 

Up & Up Makeup Removing Wipes
I compared these to Neutrogena Face Wipes - I've used both and like the Up& Up ones just as much as the brand name ones. They do exactly what they claim to do which is take off makeup! I don't think they remove mascara as well as an actual eye makeup remover, but it get's the job started! I only use these when I travel! 

Rituals Shower Gel

 I never really used a shower gel to shave before this Rituals one. The closeness you get while using this gel leaves your legs so silky smooth! I really loved it and was sad when I was done. It's a little pricey for a shower gel, but it works so well that it's worth it and it lasts a really long time! 

Toni & Guy Leave In Conditioner
This is the first leave in conditioner that I've ever used and it certainly won't be the last time I use this one! I LOVED the way my hair felt after it was blow dried - like I had just gone to the salon- silky, smooth & shiny. I also have the heat protection spray that I'm a huge fan of! The brand in general is great - so it's safe to say I'm in love!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation
The first few times I used this foundation I wasn't a fan, it left me thinking I looked too washed out, but after I mixed it with my BB cream I noticed that I loved the finish and how my makeup looked! For those of us that don't like the caked on makeup feel, this foundation is a winner! I just love how my makeup looked when it was done! 

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
I've used a ton of concealers of the last few years and quite frankly none of them hold a candle to this MAC concealer! It's the best I've found for covering dark circles and blemishes, but you do want to make sure that it's set properly because it can crease as the day goes on! 

Maybelline Master Primer

I picked this primer up on a whim because I really liked the packaging (good reason right), but I was beyond happy with how this primer worked! It really does smooth out the face prior to applying makeup and doesn't leave your skin feeling oily or with extra residue! I've already repurchased! 

Maybelline Lash Sensational 

To say I'm obsessed with this mascara would be an understatement - I've finished 3 tubes already!! I love how my lashes look- it lengthens and gives them volume - I can't really ask for more! They just released their revamp of this one called "luscious" so I'm excited to try that one next to see if it like it as much!

Jordana Easy liner for Eyes
I can't rave about this eyeliner enough - you could just look at my collection of 6 different shades!! I've only been able to find them at Wallgreen's for the price of 1.99 - 2.99, but online they sell for a little more - so if you have a Wallgreen's near you - check to see if they have it! I've been using it for close to 4 years and nothing holds a candle to this eyeliner. It might be cheap, but it's better than anything I've tried and doesn't smudge!

Samples//

Belief Moisturizing Bomb// I loved using this right after the shower! Felt like I was getting a facial and it was so light - probably because it's water based. I wish it wasn't so expensive, but the little sample lasted me a month so I imagine a larger one will last even longer!
Vichy Cleanser// I got the most use out of this when I used it with my clairsonic! My skin felt super smooth and like I had just gotten a facial. It's paraben free and works to tone, cleanse and remove makeup, 3 in 1!
Dr. Jart Day Tint// I said in the video that this was my favorite tint I've ever used and it's true! I mean sometimes you get what you pay for and for $48 it's pricey, but I've never felt like I could just walk out the door with a BB cream and be okay and I really felt that way while using this day tint! It really does give you a flawless finish without having to cake on other stuff!
Makeup Forever Skin Equalizer// I was so-so on this sample. I liked it, but since it was such a small sample I'm not sure it really is worth the price compared to the full size maybelline one that I mentioned above. It was nice, but not crazy good!

Hope you guys enjoyed the post! Have you used any of these products before?

  5. I love seeing what type of products everyone else is using so I can get ideas for myself! I love the Laura Mercier primer for oily skin--it seems to keep the oiliness at bay which is so important!

  10. Love this post! I have been using the up & up brand facial wipes for a few years and I love them! I tried the "Yes to Cucumber" wipes and I literally got a chemical burn on the side of my face so be careful if you ever consider those! Have a great day-Lisa.

  11. I wear the belief aqua bomb cream every day and feel like I’ve barely put a dent in the bottle. You’re right though, it feels so weightless! Love these posts!

  12. I definitely need to check out this leave in conditioner. I haven't been impressed with a lot of the brands I've tried lately. Good to know you love this one! Thanks for sharing!

  13. I love when bloggers make videos...Its so fun to actually hear voices, haha! I am curious to try out the MAC pro longwear concealer and the Jordana eye liner. Thanks for sharing!

  14. You didn't say product that much, and it's totally acceptable to overuse it here :) Great recs, a lot of things I hadn't heard of, but I will pick up when I see them because they're in my head now! I have been thinking of trying the foundation, but since you have to mix it with your BB to like it, I might pass. Thank you for saving me the $!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Loved your video!! I need to give that Urban Decay foundation another try...I just didn't like it the first time but I do love the weightless feel! And I TOTALLY agree about the Lash Sensational mascara! It has to be one of the best mascaras out there!

  28. Lash Sensational has been my favorite drugstore mascara too! I'm going to Ulta today so I will look for the newer one! I bought the sample size Belief moisturizer with Sephora points and I have been loving it. I just wish it was oil free!

  29. Oooh, I'm looking for a new drugstore mascara! Thank you for the review. Also, I really, really need a good vitamin so I'll give those a try! Best, Cari in NH

  34. I may try the Naked foundation, I don't know if my skin changed or what but my MAC foundation has been looking terribly cakey lately! So, I've been looking into reviews on other foundations!

  35. I haven't found a good multi-vitamin, so thanks for that suggestion! I love Maybelline products, so I really want to try that primer and mascara - I love hearing when drugstore products are just as good as the "big time" brands!

  36. I love these posts! I've used the Lash Sensational too and agree - it is awesome. Especially for the price!

  41. Thanks for the multi vitamin recommendation! I'm still taking prenatal vitamins even though we are WAY done with having kids, so one of my goals this year was to find a new women's multi vitamin. Guess I'll be checking this one off my list soon!

  42. Love that you have started to do videos! I've been looking for a new mascara, thanks for sharing such an affordable option.

  45. I love the Up & Up makeup removing towelettes as well. I'll have to check out those vitamins after I'm done taking prenatals. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Great job on the video, lady! I keep a pack of those face wipes in my vanity for when I'm doing my makeup and need to clean up my hands, etc. They work just as well as the brand name stuff! And, MAC Pro Longerwear concealer is holy grail for me - nothing compares!

    ReplyDelete
  47. You are a natural at blogging. Love your voice. I need anew leave-in conditioner and will try yours. I am also interested on those Maybelline products, the naked skin foundation and I could use some concealer and a primer. I use those Target makeup wipes and love them. Aldo I started taking similar gummy multivitamins and got mine at Costco and I love them. They taste sweet and delish. Keep up these videos pretty lady.

    ReplyDelete
  48. May need to try that concealer! And I need to get into a better nighttime regiment! Thanks for sharing girlfriend and love the vlog!

    ReplyDelete
  49. okay, definitely trying that mascara. fabulous! my bestie used the mac concealer on me one day and holy cow! i didn't even know concealers COULD cover that well, i have been meaning to get it. i have this red spot - and bad dark circles - that never ever gets covered no matter what, and it covered it completely. mind blown.
    love the vlog! so fun :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I use the Up&Up makeup remover wipes too--definitely works just as well as name brand (I used the garnier wipes for years), and I think it helps get any remaining residue off after you've washed your face. I LOVE all of Maybelline's mascara products--it is the only brand I will use (other than this super fancy stuff I got as a sample one time)! I'll have to try this one out.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I need to check out those vitamins...I use the makeup wipes but I use the Neutragena ones...will check out Target's. I LOVE when you do VLOGS!! You are so darned pretty, love the touch of the candle and flowers on the side. I am a super harsh judge of mascara...I am super picky. I love Voluminous (I think it is by L'Oreal...if not L'Oreal it is by Revlon), but I swear by it!

    ReplyDelete
  52. What a great Vlog review and you really gave good details on how each product works along with pricing etc. I think you sold me on the multi-vitamins, the Tony & Guy leave in conditioner and the Maybelline mascara. Looking forward to seeing many more blogs in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I just added so many new things to my beauty wishlist - that leave in conditioner, the concealer and the moisturizer! Thanks for the honest reviews!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have been needing concealer these days and had no idea where to start, thanks for the idea. Leave in conditioner is another thing I never had much use for..... does this mean I'm getting old?!

  55. Great picks, so many of these are already in my daily routine and a lot of them look like they are worth trying!

  58. I love the makeup wipes, but I have to buy the Neutrogena ones. It just seems easier on my eyes since I wear contacts. But I agree MAC's concealer is the best hands down! Great review.

  59. Loved your video Biana! I saw those vitamins the other day (well the energizing ones) and was super interested in trying them, but figured I would some research for some reviews...which I totally forgot about, so thank you! Definitely going to pick some up! I also bought that mascara per your recommendation and LOVE IT! Such a great find!

  65. Yeah at home where I can actually watch this video and not be blocked! Product empty posts are some of my favorite also considering the fact I usually get bored or move onto something else majority of times, so when I actually finish something.....you know it was good! I have never heard of that rituals line but definitely want to check it out!

  66. I totally need a new mascara so I'm definitely going to try this one! Thanks for the recommendation! Those Up and Up wipes also do look perfect for traveling! I'm going to scoop those up the next time we go away :)

  72. I love your empties videos!!! So what are you using to set the MAC concealer with? Just curious. I need a new concealer. I tried that UD foundation in Sephora and it gave me to coverage. It made me sad. Might have to try it with BB cream. Love that lashsations as well!!! I think you mentioned it back in the spring on your blog and that is why I went out and got it and have repurchased it several times. Jordanna rocks! Are you using primers and BB cream at the same time or do you switch them out? Just wondering. I have heard people doing it both ways. I personally only use one or the other.

  73. Thanks for the post! I use and love the up&up face wipes.
