Half Yearly Empties

Posted by on Saturday, June 18, 2011

It's been THAT long since I've done an empties post...pretty incredible. Continue reading (if you wish) for a mildly pointless selection of products that I have used up.


From left to right:

Elizabeth Arden Natural Volume Mascara - er, hated this by the end. It burns like a mofo and I didn't really like the brush? So I was pretty happy when this spontaneously dried up and died.

Wilkinson's Four Way Nail Buffer - this I love, and have already repurchased. It's a cracking little file for 89p and lasted quite a long time before the sides went smooth. I'd recommend it to anyone that was looking for a cheap buffer.

Superdrug Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover - This was alright, not the best but not the worst. It's decent for the price, which was less than £1.50 if I remember correctly.

Boots Natural Collection Vanilla Body Spray - I liked the smell of this a lot, but it only stuck around for about fifteen minutes before you needed to spray again, which is a bit of a shame. I've since moved on to Ted Baker's body spray for my cheap fragrance needs but I did like this one. You got a really large quantity for the price, as well - 250ml for £2. I guess that's necessary for all the times you'll need to reapply it!

NYC 'In a New York Minute' Quick Drying Nail Polish 'Grand Central Station' - This is such a lifesaver. It dries SO quickly and is gloriously glossy, and all for £1.79. Incredible. One gripe I have about this is that it does do the 'go disgustingly think and gloopy like the snot of that troll that Harry Potter stuck his wand up the nose of in the Philosopher's Stone' thing halfway through the bottle, but I have some Seche Thinner so I can rectify that for the most part. I usually abandon ship about three quarters of the way down the bottle as it's just too thick and bubbly to use, really. But yeah, great product and I've already repurchased.

Not pictured is some random ass Allura nail glue, the fumes from which made my eyes burn but it did the job required i.e keeping fimo shapes on my thumb. Eh.


  1. Wow, I take my hat off to you for finishing that bottle of NYC polish. I've never finished a single bottle and its shameful! :P

  2. love the idea of this! its always nice to look back and know that you've actually used the products that you buy..and for me, it can sometimes be hard with the amount of products bought.. haha great post!

  3. Lol, thanks Witoxicity! But the bottles you showcase are too pretty to use up :P You get so many gorgeous holos over there!

    Thanks, carissakuo! Yeah, I buy a lot but I guess I end up finishing most of it. Thanks both of you for your comments <3
