February Empties

It is now time for another Empties post!  I'm feeling pretty darn good about my February "productivity" report. Without further ado!

L'Oreal Volluminous Million Lashes Mascara in waterproof
I actually had to throw this out because it went bad. I stopped using it sometime in my 2nd trimester and realized it had a funky smell about 10 months later. However, from what I remember I thought it was an ok mascara. It didn't really hold my curl very well and it smudged a little bit. But it did add volume and a little length. 

Dr. Brandt Dark Circles Away Collagen Eye Serum
My hubby and I used it together. I really liked it because it had highlighting tint in it and really brightened up my sleepy and tired looking eyes. It was light and almost gel-like. My husband liked it for a while but he wasn't as fond of the tint in the product as I was. As for me, I would want to use it again. 

Generic Eyelash Curler
The spring broke. It was ok. 

Olay Complete All Day UV Moisture Cream SPF 15 for normal skin
Another good product. I felt so accomplished finishing this jar!  As a moisturizer with SPF it does the job, but I always wished for something a little more high end and packaged in a prettier jar. Haha!  The brain is a funny thing. 

Becca Radiant Skin Satin Finish Foundation in light
This was a sample I received with a larger purchase from Sephora a while ago. Let me tell you it blew my mind how silky and blendable this foundation actually is!  It had medium coverage and could have been buildable if I had more of it. When I finish with all of my other foundations (which might be a long time from today) I will look into getting this one. 

Salon Plus Premium Cotton Rounds
Easily accessible, good quality cotton pads. No complaints. 

Boudreaux's Butt Paste
Jellybean finished another one. Still no diaper rash!  Love it!

Clinique Active White Lab Solutions Eye Moisture SPF 15 PA ++
A daytime eye moisturizer with SPF. It's pretty nice to use.  I found that it balls up over certain gelly types of moisturizers, so I liked to use it by itself over toner. It's ok but I don't know if I'll use it again. It was an extra step in my Skincare routine. 

Christian Breton Eye Care
I didn't use this often enough to form an opinion. I think I didn't like it because the rose scent made me nauseated during my pregnancy. So my husband used it. He told me that he preferred this to the Dr. Brandt Eye Serum because it was cooling and it was clear. He didn't have to worry about blending it in like he did with the other one.  As for effectiveness, my husband says he can't tell if the product made his eye area look refreshed or not. He feels he looks the same. 

That's it for this month!
