November Empties

I know, it’s the middle of December and I’m writing about the beauty products that I used up in November. Better late than never, right? I finished up quite a few different products – hair care, skincare, makeup, and body. That was a mixture of full sized, and samples, and overall I’m feeling quite accomplished. By the way, when I say ‘repurchase’, some of them I didn’t actually purchase but got sent from brands, or got samples at counter but my evaluation remains the same – would I spend my money on them in the future. Right, now let’s get on with the reviews!

Give Me Some Lip – Sephora Favorites

In December, I did a bit of a post-breakup ‘treat yo self’ haul from Sephora, and by far my favourite thing that I purchased was the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip limited edition set. It’s a set of 6 different lip products, mainly mini sized, and has a good variety between brands and types of products; including Bite Beauty, Urban Decay, Marc Jacobs, NARS, Buxom and Smashbox. I thought it was a good opportunity to try products from different brands since only Smashbox is available in New Zealand. It feels a bit silly to be reviewing a set that is no longer available, however, all the products are available in full sizes so hopefully this will be a useful post, rather than just showing off something I bought.
