Till We Meet Again: Empty and Expiring Products

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Empty posts are almost like the final grade on a report card.  You have been observing and testing them for an extended period of time and have developed a great familiarity with their performance. So which of these beauty products got the top marks?

Grade: A (beauty products I would repurchase)

Coffret D’or Color Blush Pink (similar here)

This one hit pan a while ago and is starting to crumble into pieces.  I feel this is the true sign of love for a product.  This lovely pink blush with highlighter came with their special edition eyeshadow palette.  The blush is pretty on its own, but swirled with the highlighter, provides the most beautiful glow to your cheeks.  Plus, it lasts and lasts and you’ll catch yourself staring in the mirror at how great your blush looks at the end of the day.

Ipsa Creative Concealer 

Love their foundations and also love this concealer palette.  This is probably my favourite concealer.  In the palette, there is a darker shade which is like a corrector and two other shades which can be mixed in the provided pan.  The coverage is great for concealing dark circles and it has the right amount of creaminess that it won’t sink into fine lines.  The consistency is similar to Bobbi Brown’s famed Creamy concealer, but a little less creamier, and thus, increases the longetivity of the product on the skin.

Kjaer Weiss Cream Blush

Let’s get the packaging out of the way since it is stunning.  The other great thing about the packaging is that it is reusable, and you can just buy the refill when you want a new one.  This is a lovely blush from a quality natural and organic brand.  It looks like it might be super dewy in the pan, but it surprisingly gives a more satin glow when applied.  Application is easy since it melts into the skin and blends out easily.  It also lasts a good 4-6 hours on your cheeks.

Innisfree Soy Bean Essence

Many compare this one to the SK-II essence.  I don’t think the results are as remarkable as the SK-II one, but I really enjoy this essence.  It absorbs very quickly, is odourless, and is also very moisturizing.  Plus, it is cheaper than SKII and is paraben-free.

Grade: B (enjoyed, but would not repurchase)

Canmake Color Stick Concealer in Apricot

This is a great concealer for the price.  It does a decent job of correcting dark undereye circles.  It is also easy to use out of the tube, and blends in quite easily.  Just remember not to put on too much because it might get cakey.  I probably won’t repurchase just based on the fact that I need a bit more coverage for my dark circles.

    1. So excited for you! 🙂 I really love that one. I want to get another one now I am done, but because I starting blogging, I feel like I should try out some new things. Just a dilemma. Haha. 🙂
