Mid-Year Empties

Sunday 1 July 2018

It's that time of the year where all the products we got for Christmas are starting to run out and I thought I'd share my mid-year empties and whether or not I'd re-purchase! Also, I'm sorry I've used the picture of the Ordinary foundation twice, I really hated my initial main photo because it was too dark (blogger problems...!).


Clinique Concealer
I'm not overly sure on this product. It's on okay concealer but I wouldn't necessarily say it's THE BEST concealer ever, which to be honest, I'm quite disappointed with. I love Clinique. It's my favourite brand so not being in love with this concealer is quite disappointing. I'm tempted to try the Revolution concealers which have been making shockwaves throughout the blogging community, though. I think I'll buy one of those next and see how I get on with that!

The Ordinary Coverage Foundation
I bought this on a whim from ASOS, with zero idea on colours etc. I'd seen it banded round the bloggersphere and at £6, I couldn't leave it there. Actually, it was less than £6 because student discount yoooo! Anyway, it arrived, and by some weird magic- it was THE perfect colour for me. It's super high coverage- which I love for a night out- so I'd definitely re-purchase!


Benefit Brow-Zings Eyebrow Palette
This is my ride-or-die brow product. I absolutely love it and I've used it since I was 16 or 17. I'm a bit dubious as they've re-packaged and changed the formula of the product since I last bought it but I have bought a replacement so I'll see how it goes!

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick
This is my holy grail lip colour. Honestly. I couldn't live without it. If you haven't tried Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick's you need to get on this. Like ASAP. Definite repurchase.


Wonderland Loose Pigment
I love love love using this little loose pigment in the corners of my eyes. I was actually sent this to test out and I'd definitely re-purchase. As I said in my initial review, I might order some different colours too, read my review here.

NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray
I like to use this little finishing spray from NYX on a day-to-day basis and keep my Urban Decay setting spray for nights out/ special events. I think it's lightweight and dries quickly and leaves my make up looking flawless all day. I'd re-purchase.

I also have run out of the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer which I don't actually have a photo of (except in the background of all the other pictures!). I do like this primer, but as I said in my Wonderland review which is linked above, their formula is very similar and at a snip of the price so I think I'd buy the Wonderland version instead.

Have you used any of these products? What have been your mid-year empties? I'd love to know!

XOXO Molly


  1. I've been looking for a new budget-friendly setting spray for a little while, to save my holy grail MAC setting spray to special occasions. I'm definitely going to give the NYX spray a try. Thank you for sharing!

    Hope you're having a great weekend.

  2. Empties are my favourite posts, I seem to get through products really fast. I still haven't tried The Ordinary foundation but again I've heard so many good things about it.
