August Favorites & Empties
As you can see I don't have many favorites this month.. Just two eyeshadow palettes and a fragrance. I was always wearing a different lip color or mascara (etc.) this month so there weren't any that I wore enough to be warranted as 'monthly favorites'.
Anyway, my August favorites consist of the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette, the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, and Meow! by Katy Perry. The only shadows I wore this month were from either of these palettes.. If I wanted shimmer I went with the Comfort Zone, and if I wanted matte I went with the Naked Basics. Both palettes include great neutrals and the quaity of each is fantastic. As for Meow!, it's one of my favorite fragrances and it got lots of love this month.
Onto the empties..!
I finished up mosty skincare items along with three mascaras that have done their time. From left to right is Pond's Cleansing and Makeup Removing Towelettes, Maybelline's Illegal Length Mascara, Avon's Foot Works Dual-Action Pedi Peel, a sample of Vichy's Normaderm Hydrating Acne Care lotion, Rimmel's Max Volume Flash mascara, L'Oreal's Voluminous Million Lashes mascara, and the St Ives Apricot Scrub.
I wanted to try out some different cleansing wipes and while these ones did their job they weren't anything special and I like my ones by Clean & Clear and Neutrogena better, so I wouldn't repurchase. As for all three of the mascaras, I've kept them longer then I should and it's time for them to go. They were all good but again, nothing special, so I don't think that I would repurchase any of them. I have soooo many more mascaras to get through anyway.. both open and unopened!
You all know that I hate feet (including my own) so I try to make them as nice as they can be.. these pads from Avon are supposed to exfoliate and retexturize dry skin to let new, heathy skin resurface but.. they didn't really do anything. I got them on sale for cheap but it still felt like a waste of money. With the Vichy lotion I didn't really get to use it long enough to see any results or changes.
And my last empty product is the ever popuar St Ives Apricot Scrub.. some people love it and some people say that it's much too harsh. I heard they changed the formula though, and I think that's what I have since it was quite gentle.. I did like it and can see myself purchasing it again, but right now I'm using the Green Tea scrub (also by St Ives!) which is one of my favorites.
