Jasmine's Semi-Annual Makeup Empties

I very rarely finish makeup items since I have too many things to weed though. A few of these things here I actually finished and a couple I am simply throwing out because they are too old or are just horrible products. I noticed a few of y'all found the title (semi-annual) of my empty posts very amusing, but I have no idea what else to call it, so I shall continue the intrigue of a possible mattress sale, hehe. To read more about each, click......
1. Bailey Powder Foundation Duo
This I received from Glossybox Canada a long time ago. Only one of the two colors was right for me but the way the compact is designed made it very hard for me not to dab into the way too dark shade everytime I try to pick up the lighter shade. Thus, I rarely used it and so I decided to toss it out.
Repurchase? According to Bailey's website, this is $40! So no!

2. Benefit Some Kind-a Gorgeous Foundation in Medium
There is still a bit of this product left but I bought this quite a while ago, dare I say four or five years ago? Eeeek I know, I am not good at throwing out expired makeup. Anyhow, this was a nice product, it applies as a cream but dries to a powdery texture. However, the coverage and longevity are lacking with this so unless you have pretty decent normal to dry skin, this isn't a very trusty foundation.
Repurchase? No.

3. Rimmel ScandalEyes Show Off Mascara Fiber Formula
I used this maybe twice but it is absolutely terrible. Read my full review on this here.
Repurchase? No! I want my money back!

4. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer in Ivory
This product I actually finished. This is probably the first beauty product I have legitimately finished! So kudos to me! Strangely I used this one as a brow highlight most of the time, read my full review on it here.
Repurchase? Maybe, I still have a brand new unopened tube of Rimmel Match Perfect concealer in my stash so I will hold off on buying another one.

5. Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara
This lovely mascara came in another Glossybox maybe a year ago. I quite fancy this one, it lengthens nicely and doesn't clump, the wand also has a comb side that helps declump and separate.
Repurchase? No, this was great but then I discovered Fairy Drops!

6. China Glaze Holiday Berry Cuticle Oil
I bought this two Christmases ago at winners along with another China glaze polish for around $8 total. I think I spilled more of this than I actually applied on my cuticles. But it's really great, I love the fact that it comes in a polish bottle with a brush applicator.
Repurchase? Already did! A month ago I saw the orange scent version of this at Winners for $6 so I nabbed it right away!

7. Julep Essential Cuticle Oil
Clearly I am very good to my cuticles! This is another cuticle oil I finished up this year. I am not fond of the roll-on applicator of this one because it's hard to maneuver around the cuticles without making a huge mess. But this one is definitely spill proof!
Repurchase? No, unless it goes on sale for three or four dollars.

Alright, there we go, my semi-annual makeup empties, come back for the last edition of my semi-annual empties post on skincare!
As always, thanks for reading!
