September 19 Weekly Empties

Even though it’s only Tuesday, I know I won’t have any other empties this week so here are my accomplishments!

Pixi Retinol Tonic – it was OK, I’m not really excited about the product or results for the cost

Available at Ulta


Petite N Pretty Fully Feathered Volumizing Mascara – I got this in a Boxycharm and I really liked the way it made lashes look but I don’t know that I’ll be paying the $16 for it but if this is in your price range I definitely recommend it!

Available at Ulta


Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat shampoo and conditioner – these lasted me a while because I wash my hair once or twice a week. I really like the oil and protective primer but the shampoo and conditioner left my hair feeling a little coarse, I have thick wavy, color treated hair. I won’t be repurchasing these.


Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads – I received these through Boxycharm and was able to buy backups from their pop-up sale because I really enjoyed these! They’re gentle enough to use daily or you can use them 3-4 times a week

Available at Ulta


And I used a few TonyMoly face masks which I love for extra and quick hydration

What empties do you have this week?

June BoxyLuxe

I’m actually really happy with this month’s box! The box contained-

Tula Glow & Get It Cooling & Brightening eye Balm MSRP $28
Tarte Cosmetics Tartiest Pro Amazonian Clay Palette MSRP $49

Bodyography Lip Pencil Set (Pouty and Rosewood) MSRP $28

Total value $324
Cost $55.11 (to southern California)

I used as many products from this month’s Luxe box as possible

I used the Tula cooling and Brightening eye balm, I liked the nice cooling sensation it gave me but I didn’t notice much brightening.

The Purlesse BB Cream feels like a light sunblock but doesn’t have a scent. It looks darker and thicker than it applies. I had to use my hands to apply it, you can see how light the coverage is in the pictures below, it gives a nice healthy glow and does even my skin out a bit. I used powder to set it


I used all the Billion Dollar Brow brushes – the cream bronze/contour wasn’t stiff enough for my cream bronzer but I think it would apply cream contour nicely. I used the powder brush for both my bronzer and blush. The bristles are loose enough that it applies a light layer of color, great for building up product or getting a natural look. The concealer brush – OUCH. I would recommend roughing this up a bit before using on your undereye, it’s too stiff and pokey

I already own the tarte palette and love it. I used: Bold /Whimsy /Edgy /Smoked /Trendy and Glam. Also used Glam as highlighter

Over all I’m very happy with this box
