Bye Bye Loves: My Beauty Empties for January 2014
I can't believe that January is already coming to an end! Where did this month go?!? Ok, let's take a look at what products I used up this month...
Stila Lip Glaze - Starfruit 30
Full Size $22
I probably should have swatched this before I used it all up, but this one kinda snuck up on me. I rarely see the end of a lip gloss and this one looked like it had a bit left still. Starfruit is a pinky coral with a slight shimmer. I'm not a fan of glitter lips, but I did like the slight shimmer in this gloss. It was delicate looking. This is one of the smaller ones that you often find in a trio. It is an easy to wear shade that goes well with many different looks and colors. I certainly don't *need* more lip gloss, but I would repurchase this shade. It is hard to find a lip color that is so easy to wear!
E.L.F Studio Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths
20 Cloths $3
I'm still on my search for my holy grail makeup remover cloth, but for right now, these are my favorite for the money. The cloth is a bit too thin for my liking, but they do stay moist and do a good job removing all of my makeup. And, $3 for 20 cloths is not too bad. I continue to buy and try others, but I keep these in the rotation :)
Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara - Very Black
.44 fl.oz. $6.23 Drugstore.com
We all know my favorite mascara is Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Mascara, but that one is pricey at $18. If you are on a budget or looking for a drugstore alternative, give this one a try. I think it is a great everyday mascara. The wand is fatter than I like, but it is still pretty easy to work with. The little plastic bristles really get in there and find your lashes. It really defines my lashes and gives them volume as it promises. It wears really well; it does not smudge or flake off throughout the day. It may not be my all time favorite, but it is my favorite drugstore mascara. I will certainly repurchase it.
Bath & Body Works
True Blue Spa - Shea Cashmere Hand Cream
2.5 fl.oz. $12.50
I love the silky, soft feeling of this hand cream! It is too heavy for me to use in the Spring and Summer, but it is perfect for my dry hands in Fall and Winter. I love the smell, too. It is a warm, spicy vanilla scent. I have gone through quite a few of these and I will continue to repurchase. Keep an eye out for buy 2 get 1 free sales!
Zoya Remove+ Polish Remover
2 fl.oz. $4.60
I got this little guy free with one of my Zoya purchases. I really like this remover. It is not my first and won't be my last :) For my full review Click Here to see my Bye Bye Loves November post.
Bath & Body Works Fresh Pineapple Volumizing Shampoo
12 fl. oz. $3 on Clearance Discontinued
I usually pick up a few of these during the Bath & Body Works Semi Annual Sales for about $3 each. I haven't seen them around as much, but I still have a little stash. They are good, about drugstore quality shampoos in a variety of fun fragrances. When they are really gone for good, I'll survive, but they are fun!
Classic HiHo Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Moisturizing Milkbath
32 Bubbly Ounces - Price ?
This was a gift from a local shop so I'm not sure about the price. I really liked it though! I love anything honey scented, but this was very moisturizing, too. And, it is huge! This one lasted me quite a while. I'm definitely going to have to check out the shop it is from and pick up another one.
The White Barn Candle Co. French Vanilla
15 oz. $17.00 Discontinued
Yes, yes... we all know I'm a candle hoarder! Remember these? I can't even say it is my last one. I have a bit of a stash. For those of you that don't remember, these are the old style candles from Bath & Body Works. The new ones are fantastic, too, I just bought a bunch of these on clearance when they were being discontinued and I'm slowly working my way through them. I think I'm going to try to clean up the jar and use it in my craft room.
White Barn The Perfect Christmas: Tree Home Fragrance Oil
0.33 fl.oz. $7.50 Seasonal
I love burning this oil while I have my Christmas Tree up! It smells just like a fresh cut Christmas Tree! I actually took my tree down the first week in January which is super early for me. I love leaving my tree up for as long as possible, but with baby on the way I thought I should get it done "early" this year. This oil is fantastic. It seems pricey for a little bottle, but a little goes a long, long way! It is Seasonal, but every year Bath & Body Works comes out with something like this and I pick up one or two.
