Empties December 2016-March 2017

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might remember when I did Empties posts every month for all the products I’d finished that month. I stopped doing them at the start of this year because I figured it’s a bit uninteresting to read about what someone else has used up…but I’ve always said that I want to write this blog as much for myself as I do for others. And I like to look back and see what I’ve used up and remember what did and didn’t work! So since I’ve been holding on to the past few months’ worth anyway, I decided to do one big post every 3-4 months and call it a day. This post might be kinda boring but they can’t all be gems okay haha


I find it very weird that in December and February it looks like I used 10x the products I did in January and March! I guess those even numbered months I’m more productive?

Since there’s so many products here, I won’t review all of them…I’ll just put a ❤ next to ones I really loved or have purchased again and a 😦 next to ones I hated haha. And just for giggles, at the end I tallied up some stats about my empties too!

I’m nerdy enough that I have a spreadsheet for my makeup, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that I’m curious about what kinds of products I use up the most. Here’s the number of products I used up from each category:

  • Skincare: 25
  • Makeup: 12
  • Shower/bath items: 18
  • Other: 3
  • Items from beauty boxes: 15
  • Single use items: 17
  • Total items: 58

Yay so much progress! Like I said, I know this isn’t necessarily as interesting as some other posts but I still think it’s cool to see how much stuff I go through. I’ll do another one in a few months probably! My goal is by the end of the year to finish an eyeshadow palette so…we’ll see if that happens!!

Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for reading 🙂
