A mixture of makeup and hair/body products this time. I'll start with the hair and body products:
n-spa Coconut Ice Cream Show and Bath Gel: "I am told, said the wise man, that the sweet water inside the coconut is created by a sea maiden...as its beautiful scent touches your nose, her soft music and laughter surrounds you. Take her hand and follow her...I am told she makes dreams come true." First off: COCONUT. My friends got this for me a couple of birthdays ago and promptly confiscated it because I wouldn't stop smelling it. Apart from the scent, it's mostly just a normal shower gel. Makes good bubbles, too, if you use it as a bubble bath. Repurchase? Probably.
The Body Shop Raspberry Shower Gel: I didn't get much use out of this as there wasn't much left; my mum used it for a while and I persuaded her to let me use the last bit up as she'd been ignoring it. Mostly just a normal shower gel, smells alright. Repurchase? Meh.
The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel: D'aww, look at the diddly mini next to the big grown up one. This is quite a fake strawberry smell - what isn't? - but it's a very nice fake strawberry smell. Like sweeties rather than actual strawberries. Lathers nicely. Repurchase? Probably.
Avon Tea Tree and Mint anti-dandruff shampoo: Again, this was just a using-up-the-last-bit kind of thing, though this time it was me that ignored it for ages (it got left in my travel bag; I used the last bit up on holiday). From that one use it did what shampoo tends to do, mostly. My hair was nice and clean, and there's not much else to say. It has a very fresh sort of smell. Repurchase? Probably, if they still sold it.
Refreshingly Pure Body Scrub: Got this in a set quite a while ago. It smells generically shower gelly and had tiny tiny little blue balls for the scrubbing. I don't think it was very effective at the scrubbing thing, so therefore - Repurchase? Nah.
On to the makeup! I will warn you, a lot of these things were my first ventures into makeup and then sat there for a while, so these'll be short.
MUA powder in Shade 1: Too dark for me. I decanted the rest and mixed it with something else to make a loose powder, and it works very well for that. Repurchase? For my loose powder concoction yes; for using straight no.
The Body Shop Silver Eyeliner: This was good while it worked, I think. It's now all dried up; I'm thinking of using the brush for nail art. Repurchase? Maybe? It's been a while...
MUA Gold Eyeliner: OK, so, MUA are great at some things, but... not these. Sorry. Repurchase? No.
The Body Shop Super Volume Mascara: Again, been a while. I think it was decent when it wasn't dried up? Repurchase? I have no idea. If it was in my price range, possibly. (it was originally a gift)
MUA Silver Eyeliner: Yes, that says silver. I, ahem, adapted it by adding black face paint. Anyway, in its original form, it was much like its gold counterpart in that it wasn't great. Repurchase? Nope.
Natural Collection single eyeshadow in Lavender: I liked this; it was a gentle wash of colour and one of my first eyeshadows. I got a new one as a present and it's intriguing to compare old and new - this one is less pigmented than the new one and also smells weird. Therefore, byebye. Repurchase? Absolutely.
Lipgloss off the front of a magazine: I dunno, it was a generic magazine lipgloss really. It was quite gritty because of the glitters in it. I tried repurposing it by filling it with nail polish remover to do cleanup around my nails - which actually worked quite well, until the nail polish remover broke through the bottom of the tube. Oops. Repurchase? Even if it was possible, no.
Avon Colortrend double ended eye makeup thing: Again, one of my first makeups. I think it was alright? The eyeliner got really hard to use once you wore down the tip a bit, it'd make a really thick line. Repurchase? Nah.
Avon Colortrend Plump Out Mascara: This was mostly just a general mascara. Nothing special, nothing awful. *shrugs* Repurchase? Unlikely.
Aww, it's like a look back into my clueless makeup stage. I mean, I'm still clueless about a lot of things, but a bit less clueless than I was when I got these.
Hope you enjoyed the post; more empties will come when my basket gets back to 10! Have you emptied anything recently?
