Empties - Products I've Used Up | 001

I love reading about what products people have finished up! I find it so much more informative than a review of a product that has only been used once or twice. So I wanted to share with you guys all of the empties I've been saving since January. Some products I loved, some I hated and a few were somewhere in the middle.

10 Binge-Watch Worthy Beauty Vloggers

I've been watching beauty vloggers long before I started my blog and my Instagram account. Sitting down after work and watching a tutorial or favourites video was what really got me into makeup. It's how I learnt about new products and new techniques. Of all of the people I subscribe to on YouTube, the following are my favourite to watch. 

I love watching Jamie's videos when I am in the mood to shop. Why? Because whenever I'm done with watching a video of hers I've added like, at least 3 items to my wishlist. She does tutorials on wearable looks, give in depth reviews and product comparisons and seems so down to earth.

The Winter Beauty Edit

For complete and total sunshine lovers like me, winter isn't the most fun. I don't really like rain, or being cold, or the shorter daylight hours. But this year I'm going to try to make the most of it (we're only two weeks in, let's see how I'm feeling in two months time). In my quest to embrace winter I'm going to share my favourite makeup products for this time of the year.

Instagram Made Me Buy It

I have been an avid user of Instagram for years. I first opened an account in 2010, not having any idea that it was a social media platform. I thought it was just a photo editing app that had pretty filters. The shock when one day I realised that all of the photos I'd added were out there for the world to see! Fast forward seven years and I can't get enough of this app. Scrolling through my feed, interacting with other posters and watching Instastories has become a part of everyday life for so many. 

I know I'm not the only one that is sometimes a little too influenced by Instagram. I decided make a post of a few of the products I've purchased after falling in love with them while scrolling through my feed. Luckily, they have all ended up working for me and some are absolute stand-outs in my collection. Be sure to check out the accounts I've shared in the photos (all linked below the pictures), they're all beautiful accounts ran by even more beautiful people.

Seeing the incredibly luxe, vintage inspired rose gold packaging had me itchy to place an order. I mean, look at them! The little lip imprint, the shade range, the fact that they're all inspired by women Charlotte has worked with. These little beauties were all over my feed and I had a serious case of FOMO. They're not cheap but they are worth every dollar. If you're looking to splurge on lipstick, Charlotte Tilbury is worth checking out.
