February Empties!

I would say I had another successful month of empties!

L to R: Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme, Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara, Tom Ford Velvet Orchid

Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme: I received this as a free sample from a Sephora purchase, This is described as having notes of neroli, raspberry, green mandarin, jasmine, orange blossom, guimauve, vanilla, heliotrope, and sandalwood. I quite like this one, it's a sweet yet seductive fragrance I would be happy to get a full size of! Another winning fragrance for Dolce & Gabbana!

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara: (from this haul). This is a waterproof mascara, and difficult to remove even with eye makeup remover. I found it to be a bit clumpy and it dried out fairly quickly, Will not repurchase

Tom Ford Velvet Orchid: (sample from this haul). This scent is described as having notes of cool citrus, floral petals, honey, and rum. I'd describe it as quite musky and floral (but a heavy floral if that makes sense). I was glad that this was a 1 time use sample as I wasn't a fan and found it to be longer lasting on my skin. Will not purchase.

L to R: Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara, Make-Offs Hypoallergenic Cotton Rounds, Julep Eden

Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara: (from this haul). I enjoyed this mascara, however I did find that by the end of the day it would be smudged under my eyes. It didn't clump and definitely volumized my lashes. However I'm not aiming for that raccoon look so I will not repurchase.

Make-Offs Hypoallergenic Cotton Rounds: these are just your generic cotton rounds, bought at Longo's because of the price. These did have a lot of fluff making them unideal for nail polish removal, will not repurchase.

Julep Eden: One of my first Julep polish (I think it came in my second Maven box), Eden has unfortunately separated past the point of being fixable. The brush is gloopy with polish, and the consistent of the polish has become thinner than nail polish remover, I shook and shook and no luck. So this is the end of Eden. 

Have you had to throw out any nail polish?

Thanks for reading!
