Empties: Make up, skincare and more

Getting slightly overwhelmed by all the empties in my bedroom at the moment, so desperately needed to do a post. I love reading and watching youtube videos on these, enjoy.

Dr Organic Pomegranate Toothpaste
Yep, fruit flavoured toothpaste people. I went through an organic stage earlier in 2014 and tried this out. It's very lightly flavoured and has mint too. I really liked it and would definitely buy again.

Soap & Glory Righteous Butter
All of the soap and glory body butters are amazing. Love, love, love the scents!

Boots Nail Polish Remover Pads
I liked these. I don't think they are the best ever like compared to the Bourjois ones, but they are cheap and perfect to pack in your bag for when you're travelling.

Nivea Powerfruit refresh body wash
I don't really get excited about body wash. Who does? This however, smells so good. So much so, I genuinely thought I need to repurchase it. I think it's always on £1 offers too, even better.

Lancome Bi-Facil
This removes eye makeup really well, especially if you have a smokey number on the go. It's really oily though and not the kind that disappears very well. I probably wouldn't repurchase.

Sanctuary Creme Souffle
Confession? I am a really lazy moisturiser. It pleases me more than you can imagine that I actually finish body butters. The Sanctuary products are a real treat and I loved the souffle style of this one.

17 BB Balm
Always got one of these in my stash, perfect for the summer months. Still has good coverage and doesn't break me out or get oily.

MeMeMe Fat Cat Mascara
I haven't used any other MeMeMe products (that I can remember), but I was impressed with this mascara and would be interested to try more products from the range. Have you used any that you'd recommend?

Rimmel Wonderfull Mascara
I don't rate this mascara at all. It gave my eyelashes length, but seems to make them stick forward and very straight.

Rimmel Scandal eyes Mascara
This Rimmel mascara on the other hand was good. Other than the Wonderfull one I think Rimmel have a great affordable range.

2True Liquid eyeliner
Repurchased a million times. If you like liquid liner, try it as it's super cheap and easy to use. I'm using a 17 one at the moment and it's nowhere near as good.

Mac Prep+Prime
I have a fairly oily t-zone, so a primer (especially, on a night out) is a must if I want my makeup to last. One of my friends got me this as a gift and it's great, lightweight with a silky finish.

Mac Mineralise concealer 
Another Mac product bites the dust. I have a real love-hate relationship with concealer and yet to find my perfect one. This one is good and probably top of my list out of all the empties in this post. I'm looking to try the Nars creamy concealer or Clinique one next.

Collection Concealer 
I really like this on blemishes, but not really for under the eyes or around the nose area as it's a but drying. It's probably one I'll always have in my collection though.

Rimmel Wake me up concealer 
This concealer worked better under the eyes, but not really on blemishes as it's much lighter in consistency. I feel like I'm having concealer drama...

Soap & Glory It's about Prime eyeshadow primer
I've already reviewed this over here, alongside some of my other fav Soap&Glory makeup products, so check that post out if you're thinking of getting some.

Rimmel Wake me up Foundation 
I like this, especially in the summer months. It's always really hard to find the right colour though as they sell out quickly and the range is quite limited.

Hugo Boss Jour Perfume
This is gorgeous. It's a floral fruity fragrance, super feminine. 

Burberry Body Perfume
I just got a mini 'My Burberry' perfume and can't recommend the Burberry perfume range more. The fragrances are really fresh and sophisticated.

We made it! Please leave your links below to empties posts or concealer recommendations to help with my #concealerdramz

Day 1 of 2015 started off pretty rock & roll. Just kidding, I ended up getting the dreaded flu type cold and am currently looking drop dead gorgeous (minus the gorgeous).

Looking back, that's what we all do right? In last years post I decided I was going to stay hungry, exercise and see more. I accomplished that to about 85%, falling short on the exercise front mainly. Here's what I'm focusing on for the hopefully glorious 2015...

Learn a new language
I've always wanted to speak more than one language and my shaky German GCSE is not really cutting it. My grandparents live in Spain and I've just never motivated myself enough. This is the year. I'm booking some lessons and hopefully will be able to tick this off the bucket list by this time next year.

Get at least one ab
I only want at least one ab, is that too much to ask? I go through real phases with fitness regimes where I'm super into it and then I'm lazy for weeks on end. I'm hoping to find something I'm really into and actually get some abs by the time I'm 25 #Mid20sCrisis

Stick to a routine
Currently, I wake, snooze, wake, snooze, wake, run around, forget something, run some more and jump into my seat at work and start typing. Please tell me you do this too? Having a real routine sounds like bliss. You know those people that do a morning workout, eat some berries and think about life before they casually get to work? I'm hoping that will be me. Wish me luck.

Happy new year all!
