Downsizing - Extra Empties Post

I am currently in a bit of a dilemma in that I have to pack and downsize to move home to Malaysia.
Now, I do not have half as much makeup as some bloggers, but I have quite a sizeable collection, which is impractical to take home.

I think I will be doing a blog post when I get home to show you what I actually brought home with me, basically the "what made it" post.

I know one thing, and that is that I am not taking any nail polish (okay, maybe my seche vite) and maybe the OPIs and essie... ARGH.

Make up is going to take a major hit... It is already breaking me a little knowing I have to downsize majorly and I have sold some stuff which I have not reached for in the past 3 months, including both my Naked 2 and Naked 3 palettes. The horror.

So, I think there will not be any shopping hauls for a while but there will be some later in the year when I am back home!

Here's some really quick reviews on these items.

Nivea Micellar Water - will repurchase (favourite for the price)
Biore Waterproof Eye MakeUp Remover - good for its price, will probably repurchase but does not beat Lancome Bi-Facil at all
Moa The Green Balm - really love this stuff, would repurhcase. I have mentioned this a few times so read about it HERE.
Maybelline Brow Drama - good stuff but I prefer the L'oreal Artist Brow Plumper
Maybelline Sensational Mascara - LOVE this, will definitely repurchase
Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer - this has sadly gone a little weird but it was amazing while it lasted. I have a back up.
Shu Uemura Foundation - more than 12 months old so I thought it was time to let go, amazing foundation, would recommend and repurchase.
Givenchy BB Cream - actually got a few uses out of this sample and it made my skin look really nice, would consider buying full size.
YSL Touche Eclat - have repurchased, HG undereye concealer.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 20 Sand - almost done so I said goodbye. Good dupe for Nars but the colour is slightly too light on me.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Spray - LOVE. WILL REPURCHASE.

ThisWorks In Transit Muscle Therapy - This has a rollerball which is super nice but the smell is a little intense. I bought another one from Nip+Fab and prefer that for the scent.
Deciem Fountain - could not finish this, the taste of ginger was too much and the texture made me want to throw up every time.. EVERY TIME.
Indeed Labs Nanoblur - did not get on with this at all. NO.

Rimmel Matte Top Coat - this has dried weird, I also no longer like matte nails but if I did, I probably would repurchase.
Barry M Nail Paint in Navy - I've had this for 5 years and it is just starting to go weird.
Barry M Nail Paint in Matte Pink - no longer like matte nails.
Essence 6 in 1 Nail Polish - liked this as a base coat but have another which I prefer
OPI nail polishes - I've had these for 3 years and they are just starting to go weird, I really like them
Inglot Nail Polish - this was a bit bright as a red and I did not wear it much. The formula was nice, packaging is not my favourite.

 Nivea Supreme Touch - LOVE THIS
Soap & Glory Pulp Friction - LOVE THIS
Herbal Essences Naked Shine Conditioner - do not like this, I used it as a shaving cream to try and finish it.
L'oreal Hair Expertise Super Sleek Conditioner - LOVE and will repurchase
Neutrogena T-Gel - really worked so I probably will repurchase

 La Roche-Posay Thermal Water - not my favourite, it's okay
Pixi Glow Tonic - LOVE this
Caudalie Polyphenol Serum - this was a repurchase and I will repurchase
Indeed Labs Snoxin - think this works, would potentially repurchase
Indeed Labs Hydraluron - really enjoyed using this, would potentially repurchase
Clarins Eye Contour Gel - this was really nice but so expensive so probably will not repurchase

Rituals Shower Foam - SO LOVELY, highly recommend as a treat/present
Lycon Ingrown Hair Solution - did not feel like it actually worked...
Vaseline - used up for all random things, and have so many back ups.
Sanctuary Spa Ultimate Salt Scrub - did not actually enjoy using this as much as I thought I would..
L'occitane Rose Hand Cream - Smells really nice, not greasy, quite a nice one.

Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask - really like this, will repurchase
Biore Pore Pack - I like using these but have been told they're really harsh on the skin so will try not to use it
Soap & Glory The Fab Pore 2 in 1 Mask Pack - initially liked it but fell out of love wth it
Eylure Eyelash Glue - the only one I use, it's great
Revitalash - it works, get it.
Aveda Tourmaline Moisturiser - it's a bit sticky, so I won't get it
Palmers Cocoa Butter Lip Balm - did not like it and it has a weird shape packaging, will not repurchase
Cowshed Lip Balm - really liked this, used until I cut it open!
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion - liked this, didn't need it so decided not to move with it
The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter - really like this to take make up off, have a back up already
BareMinerals BareSkin Foundation - liked this, but need to try it again before I commit.

Charles Worthington Hair Healer - prefer coconut oil, will not repurchase
Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil - nice, but prefer others
Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque - REALLY NICE, this is a second pot, will repurchase
Salon Science Hydrasorb Intensive Masque - On my 3rd jar/pot, really like this on my scalp
Salon Science Cooling Spray - my nozzle kept clogging, is nice and cooling but does leave my hair slightly greasy
Lastly, Mac Fix +, I just prefer The Body Shop Vitamin E spray over this, so I will not repurchase. Not only does the spray and packaging annoy me, (not as nice) there is a scent to this which I am not a fan of, but it does leave make up BEAUTIFUL.

Massive clearout of empties and just throwing things away. Hope this has been helpful!
