Empties #12

This month's empties is so big that I am unable to do individual shots..
 I also had to put the items on the floor as some of them were in danger of leaking everywhere!

Let's start with items which I am trying to sell off.
Urban Decay Fiend Lipstick - too pink for me
Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Watermelon -too many lipsticks
Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Coral Blossom
Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple
Lancome Rouge in Love 183N - too many reds!
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream - too fragrances for my liking
Revlon Colourstay Moisture Stain in 005 Parisian Passion - shade unsuitable
Rimmel Kate Moss 107 - too many dark colours
Chanel Rouge Allure 68 Emotive 
Benefit Roller Lash Sample Size - did nothing for me
Make Up Forever Aqua Shadow in 28E - loved this, but found better since!
Rimmel Scandaleyes in Taupe - this shade is not too flattering on me and it is quite hard?
OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service - don't wear this often
China Glaze Fifth Avenue - hardly reach for this
Urban Decay Blackheart - beautiful colour but chips easily and I have no patience
Sephora Red - too many red nail polishes

Then we have the body products
Dove Instant Hydration Body Lotion - I don't like body lotions but this is a good one if you do, cheap, sinks in quickly and not too fragranced but pleasant
The Body Shop Olive Body Butter - love this and looking to replace, very fresh!
Miaroma Sweet Almond Oil - While I enjoyed using this I may look for other oils to try
Sure Anti-perspirant - Only use deodorant now and not anti-perspirant
Lush So White Shower Gel - glad I bought the uber size as this is limited edition and a bit gutted it is finished!

Hair products are limited this month
Aesop Sage & Cedar Scalp Treatment - love this, have one in Malaysia but looking to replace
Astelance Dead Sea Mud - enjoyed using this but prefer the Salon Science Mask (cheaper too)

MakeUp items
Bobbi Brown Blusher Stick - dried out
Maybelline Hypersharp Liner - dried out
Elizabeth Arden Mascara - not impressed so binned
Shu Uemura Lip Gloss - smells funny and when I asked at Liberty they said it has probably gone off
Collection 2000 Cream Puff Lip Cream - since rebranded to Collection, mine is finished, I do really like this
Lancome Miracle Air de Teint Foundation sample - finished, still have the big bottle
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm Deluxe Sample - finished and while I no longer hate it, I still don't like it enough to buy it.
Nails Inc Base Coat- Nice but now goopy
Seche Vite Top Coat - LOVE but gone really goopy

Clarins Instant Eye Make Up Remover - do not like this, I did a comparison post here but will not repurchase
Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm - planning to pick one up when I am next pass a John Lewis. I love the Emma Hardie but it is so expensive and this is a good dupe for me!
Glamglow Supermud Mask - I must be the only person who does not like this, but I feel like although it works, it works just like ANY of my other mud masks so for that price tag, NO.
Rodial Stem Cell Facial - It says serum but it also says lightweight oil. While I enjoyed this, I don't think I will be purchasing a full size.
Melvita Organic Rose Beauty Mist - at 50ml it was quite expensive (I did pick this up at a sale) and the rose scent is WAY too strong for me so I ended up trying to finish it up quickly although I initially wanted this for my handbag. This also came with a wonky nozzle =/
Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask - I finished this first as I really like this and will be repurchasing! I feel that it works without being too harsh on my face. Read about my thoughts here.
Ren Clarimatte Invisible Pore Detox Mask - This was alright but nothing special to me. I prefer the Clarins mud mask or even the Origins and Sanctuary Mud Mask!
Bioderma - Another one bites the dust! This is still the best. I have other ones but nothing works quite as quickly but the Nivea one, at its price might be my purchase from now on.

BareMinerals Quick Change Brush Cleaner - I don't like the smell so I am throwing this out or maybe selling it as there is at least half left.
Colgate Sensitive Teeth Toothpaste - this was alright, nothing special.
Sensodyne Fresh Mint Toothpaste - don't like the taste or smell of this.
Boots Ear Plugs - bought this because I was sharing a room with a friend who had sleep apnea. Pretty sure I have squashed these out of use now.
Konjac Sponge (green) - I have had this for ages but really only used it for mask removal (IT IS AMAZING) and I might pick another one up just for how easy it takes mud masks off. No more scrubbing!

I don't know what you think but I feel like this was the biggest empties post yet. In fact, I could not tag most of the brands involved.
If you want to know more about any product, just leave me a comment or tweet/instagram me. I am @CherriesSballet everywhere. I have tried to keep this post slightly shorter by not ranting/praising the products too much!
