Empties 001

I'd seen so many people on here do the 'Empties' post for a while now so thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and do it :) It seems that recently all i've used up is skin care products........

Philosophy Melon Daiquiri Bath/Shower -  I love all the Philosophy bath and shower combinations, they smell amazing and basically just do what it says on the tin but personally I feel my skin feels softer after using Philosophy, will I re purchase? YES but not this melon one as wasn't over struck on the scent.

Primark 4 in 1 Beauty Wipes- Basically picked these up in heat of moment when was standing in the mega queue and saw 2 packs for £1 which you can't moan about, I didn't use them for make up removal though as I prefer my Korres ones, so I kept these in my handbag and just used for on the go and hand wipes etc when out and about, I probably would re purchase as they handy to chuck in ya bag.

Soap And Glory Sugar Crush - I have a slight obsession with this, so much so that I had to stop using it for 2 months as I was literally getting through 3/4 tubs a month :/ and was giving me a nasty reaction on my skin which was due to the particles as they quite chunky. So only recently have I started using it again but very cautious now.

Dr.Nick Lowe Purifying Foaming Cleanser -  Last month I saw this range in Boots and had heard such good reviews that I thought I would give this a go and it's love, I've been using it long enough to see the effects and it really does leave my skin feeling so fresh and soft and just all round healthier. I will be buying this again for sure.

Benefit Foamingly Clean Facial Wash- I got this as a gift from my Mum as she had been using it and got one for me to try out, first thing I noticed was the smell it reminds me so much of the Ghost perfume which was nice, and it's good but I couldn't see it doing any difference to my skin as other face washes so I'm nto sure if I would pay the price tag for this when I can get the Dr.Nick Lowe one for a little cheaper and can tell a difference in my skin when using it.

Have u finished any products this month or last? Leave me ya links if you have. 
Have you tried any of these products?

Top 5 Blushes

So along with Nail polishes another of my obsessions is Blushes I can't seem to go into a store without buying a couple it's kind of like the Magpie to Diamonds effect so I thought I would do a post on my Top 5/ Most used blushes which turned out to be a lot harder than I thought so here they are -

Top SugarBomb,Pink Swoon. Bottom Dainty,Well Dressed Coralista

Dainty,Sugarbomb,pink swoon,coralista,well dressed

1- Benefit Sugarbomb-  I think this could well be my all time fave blush, I use this on a daily basis when I'm going for just an everyday look and minimal makeup it has 4 beautiful shades and when blended together is just stunning and I think would suit any skin tone, and SO happy I hit pan on it as means one step closer to buying a new one.

2- Mac Well Dressed- This was one of my first Mac blushes I picked up I think and it's been in the wars as you can see with all the scratches in it :( but I love this, it is a satin blush so the pigmentation is not the best but if you are looking for just a hint of colour to ya cheeks then this is perfect.

3-Mac Dainty- Is my fave mineralize blush from Mac I think, the pigmentation is incredible so a little goes a long way, I prefer this on nights out as it has a nice amount of shimmer in it which personally I think would be a bit too much for a daytime look but I adore this blush and is just a stunning shade.

4- Benefit Coralista- Another blush I am head over heels in love with, I have repurchased this twice now, as at one stage this was the only blush I wore, it's the most perfect Coral shade which is perfect for the summer months and is definitely a blush I will always have in my collection, to me it's a stable.

5- Mac Pink Swoon - This is a sheer tone blush so the pigmentation is not the best which I actually like for this blush anyway as it's quite a vibrant pink So i like the face that you only need a tiny amount for a lovely flushed look on the cheeks or if you want to wear it on a night out then of course it's easy to build up for more colour.

I apply my blushes using my Real Techniques Blush Brush which is pretty amazing.

What are you're fave blushes? Any you swear by? Let me know.
