I don’t know what it is about an empties post that is just so gosh darn fascinating. Who knew rummaging through your trash could be so fun!? These posts are always far and in between because it takes so long to actually go through a full product of makeup and then collect enough to do a post, but today I finalllllly have enough!
Concealers are probably one of my favorite things to buy simply because I feel like they all bring something different to the table. My Nars radiant creamy concealer was the first concealer I ever fully used and for a while, I was hesitant to repurchase it. For the price, I didn’t think it was doing anything special and I felt like if I repurchased it would be because of major F.O.M.O. They recently launched some new shades so I will definitely swing by and grab another one. It’s an O.K concealer, but not top on my list. My favorite of all time is the Urban Decay Naked Weightless concealer. I used this every single day until I ran out. I like to try different concealers so I haven’t repurchased this but if I had to say what my favorite was it would be this hands down. Only con is I wish they had a larger shade range.
My Maybelline fit me is a constant repurchase for me. So affordable, blendable and looks great for an everyday look. Whenever I’m in a rush or just want a simple makeup look its the first thing I reach for!
The Smashbox primer water was one of those ” I’m standing in line in Sephora and grabbed this as I was waiting” items, but it has been such a great on the whim purchase. I know some people prefer to use this as a setting spray but I actually like it as a primer. I typically spray this right after I put on my moisturizer and then I let it dry while I do my hair. The urban decay setting spray I use solely for setting my face but I find that it doesn’t really do that great of a job. I’ve purchased both the all-nighter and chill spray and I don’t find them to do anything really significant. Since I have dry skin I prefer to set my makeup with a spray instead of a powder but with these, I still have to set with both. I’ve heard that the skindanavia and the makeup forever mist and fix are great alternatives so I may try those next!
The holy grail sprays of all time is the Mac Fix Plus. Over the years I’ve used this before and after my makeup and on my brushes when applying makeup. It’s just a universal spray that can do wonders for your routine. I need to go back and purchase the larger one because I always manage to run out!
Have you tried any of the above items? Which is your favorite?!
