Products I've Used Up/Tossed ~ November & December, 2011

I would like to apologize for being MIA! Life and I have not been getting along, but I'll try my best to stay active on here as much as possible!

Here are the products I've used up/tossed in the months of November & December:

1. IQQU Natural Sun Protection (2)
2. Garnier Skin Renew Anti Dark-Circles Repair
3. NARS Pillow Talk lipgloss
4. Costal Scents Grape Vine gel liner
5. YSL Faux Cils mascara
6. Maybelline One by One Volum' Express
7. Lancome Hypnose Drama (deluxe sample)
8. Lancome Cils Booster XL Mascara Base (deluxe sample)

IQQU Natural Sun Protection (2). I bought two of them because they were on sale during "Black Friday" two years ago. I don't exactly remember why I didn't like this sunscreen, but one thing I do remember is that it was overpriced and ineffective.

Will I Re-Purchase? No. 

Garnier Skin Renew Anti Dark-Circles Repair. This rollerball has a nice skintone-like tint that can be used as a corrector. It's very light and easy to work with.

Will I Re-Purchase? In the future. I have way too many products for the under-eyes I have to use up. 

YSL Faux Cils mascara. The only thing I liked about this mascara is the scent. I'm fond of the smell because (1) it's pleasant and (2) you'll know that the mascara isn't good anymore when the scent changes. Other than that, it smudged on me after a half of hour.

Will I Re-Purchase? No.

Maybelline One by One Volum' Express mascara. It smudged. That's all I have to say.

Will I Re-Purchase? No.

Lancome Cils Booster XL Mascara Base (deluxe sample). I honestly didn't see the difference of applying my mascaras with or without this product. It didn't do anything for me.

Will I Re-Purchase? No.

Lancome Hypnose Drama (deluxe sample). Smudged. That is all.

Will I Re-Purchase? No.

Costal Scents Grape Vine gel liner. When I started wearing makeup three years ago, this was one of the first liners I bought. I used it as a base color a couple of times, but it wasn't anything special.

Will I Re-Purchase? No.

NARS Pillow Talk lipgloss. This lipgloss came with a set I bought one or two years ago (it came with NARS Orgasm blush & mini multiple). It's a nice shade of pink, but a little too sticky for my preference.

Will I Re-Purchase? No.

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm. This is the only makeup remover I will ever need! It's so gentle and removes everything so easily (esp. eye makeup) that I never have to tug on my skin.

Will I Re-Purchase? YES! I will pick one up after I finish up all of my makeup wipes.

The Body Shop - Vitamin E Body Lotion. After going through so many Vitamin E Body Butters this year, I decided to try the lotion. The lotion is not as moisturizing as the body butter, but it'll be great for people with normal skin. 

Will I Re-Purchase? Probably Not. I'll stick with my Body Butters!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Sorry to hear that you and life are not getting along. I hope things get better!

    Thanks for the mini-reviews! I wanted to ask about the Garnier anti dark circles roller... How many times do you swipe it under your eyes? I bought one yesterday and I feel like the tint disappears so quickly.

  2. @Kusanagi, Thank you! I really appreciate it. =)

    I usually swipe it under my eyes 2-3 times and then blend it in with my ring finger! If after I think I need more, I give it one more swipe. It's usually enough for me to just apply concealer on top though.

  3. Thanks for the suggestion. I will try that! Hope you have a happy new year!

  4. No problem! I hope it works out well for you!

    Happy New Year! =)
