here, but basically I can't think of anything worse than hitting pan on a favourite shadow or bidding farewell to a much-loved foundation.
Despite all this, I did actually manage to finish products this year (an absolute miracle) and whilst this is heartbreakingly sad, I think it's probably a good thing.
Here are my empties for 2012!
Clean and Clear Cleanser and Moisturiser which are actually my second lot after repurchasing it when I ran out the first time. It is hardly surprising that I finished these up considering I use these twice a day. I really like how this works for my skin (and the price) but I think now that my skin is a little less oily, the cleanser is a bit too harsh so I'll be switching to another brand. I'm not sure which one it will be yet, I've still got some researching to do! (When I took the photos I hadn't yet finished my Cleanser but I have now!)
I also used up my Essence eyebrow gel. This is another product that I used every single day without fail. I love that it keeps my eyebrows in place but doesn't make them look to rigid and fake, and doesn't leave any strange residues. It feels fine and looks fine, and for the four or so dollars that I paid for it I am one happy girl! I'll definitely be repurchasing this.
The Evoke body spray in Electrified was one that I chucked in my bag, especially when going to the gym, and I was not stingy in terms of application. It seemed to last a remarkably long time considering how carefree I was, spraying it in great amounts, but it has (sadly) come to the end of its life.
I have been using this Hamilton Everyday Face light moisturising cream for a very, very long time now. I did go off it a bit during winter but with the start of Spring I picked it up again and found myself using it all up. I don't think I will purchase this again because even though I think it is a great product, I just have so many other products that can do the job.
Last but not least is perhaps my most surprising empty - the Garnier BB cream. My initial reaction to this was not a positive one, as reflected in my review of the product. I found this to be an unbelievably greasy product and it just felt awful on my face. This hasn't changed, but I found that this combined with my Face of Australia concealer, Maybelline Dream Lumi touch concealer and Maybelline Dream Matte pressed powder was a winning combination. I won't purchase this one again, but I will try out the Garnier BB cream for oily/combination skin because I have heard such positive reviews!
So there you have it, I'm still in shock that I actually have empties for the year. It will be sad to see these go, but I guess it has to happen at some point!
