Beauty Products That Were So Good I Used Them All Up

Beauty Products That Were So Good I Used Them All Up

Going Old School with today’s post.  Way back in the beginning days of blogging we used to post photos of our empties.  Beauty products that were so GOOD I used them all up!

Since I am getting ready to take a trip to the mall to restock and feeling a bit nostalgic, I thought I would bring that trend back this week by sharing what’s on my restock list.

Here are three products I have completely used up (down to the last drop). They are at the TOP of my beauty must-have’s list because they do work and deliver on their promises. They are products I buy over and over again!

Beauty Products That Were So Good I Used Them All Up

Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer.  This is hands down THE best concealer.  Delivers long-lasting, full coverage while correcting the appearance of dark circles, spots, imperfections and uneven tone without a heavy finish. Leaves skin looking smooth and refined with a seamless finish while protecting against UV rays. It lands at a slightly higher price-point than most concealers BUT is worth EVERY PENNY and one tube lasts forever.  I’ve had the same one since November, use it everyday and just ran out this week.

MAC Brushstroke Eyeliner.  I am SUPER picky about liquid liners.  Like REALLY REALLY picky. It HAS to have brush NOT a felt applicator, it HAS to go on true-black, be smudge-proof and budge-resistant… in other words it MUST last ALL DAY.  This liner checks all the boxes and then some.

Clarins Supra Volume Mascara.  Full, long lashes, no clumping, no flaking and it’s plant based!  Win Win Win. The BEST mascara I have EVER used.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Dolly Bow Headband

I am obsessed with all things vintage.

The quality, the charm and glamour of the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s has been a huge inspiration in both my personal style and my work as a stylist.

So of course when I stumbled upon The Vintage Cosmetic Company it was love at first sight.

This 1950’s inspired British beauty line recently premiered in the US and is available at Ulta Beauty.

Known for their lashes, which deliver a flawless natural look that serves everyday beauty needs, they also offer fun unique everyday essentials that evoke the look and feel of glamour from yesteryear while providing up-to-date performance and convenience.

Just picture yourself primping in front of the mirror with tools, kits, and products that look like they came straight from a 1950s film set. From classic eyelash curlers to dolly bow headbands (perfect for holding your locks back while applying makeup), fluffy bath pillows, makeup melts which literally melt away your makeup and the chicest shower caps around.

“I was inspired to create a range of products for me. A product that offers something unique in the market. A product that would pay tribute to old-Hollywood and harks back to the glamour and charm of the 1950s, but one that serves the everyday beauty needs of women everywhere. My goal with The Vintage Cosmetic Company is to offer a range of high quality beauty accessories with a unique, feminine personality. A range that combines affordability, efficacy and elegance.” – Clare Tarry The Vintage Cosmetic Company

The Vintage Cosmetic Company sent me a few of their picture perfect pieces to play with:

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Makeup headband

Dolly Bow Makeup Headband

This headband is “I Love Lucy” Perfection.  Great for holding your hair back while applying makeup, a mask or just for instagram photos lol.  It is so cute and girly it puts me in a cheery mood each morning while doing my makeup.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Makeup Melts

Make-up Melts

Ok I know this sounds crazy but its true.  These pretty in pink little cloths will remove EVERY last trace of makeup with just a splash of water! No makeup remover solution needed, the specially formulated polyester is dual sided providing both makeup removal and exfoliation!

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Show Cap

Pink Floral Satin Shower Cap

I don’t know about you but I want my blow-out to last as long as possible which means protecting my locks in the shower.  This super glamorous and oh so retro shower cap is satin (making it super soft) while the waterproof pink polka dot lining keeps every inch of your hair dry.

Pink Polka Dot Hair Turban

I AM ADDICTED and totally crushing on this beauty-baby.  In fact friends and family be warned, you will probably all be getting one from me for the holidays because I am so in love. This hair turban is made from lightweight super absorbent microfiber which absorbs excess moisture, resulting in less split ends, zero frizz and stronger, shinier hair.  With two vintage inspired buttons, it fits comfortably on those with thick or fine hair.

Chanel Ombre Premiere

Chanel Ombre Premiere

CHANEL Beauty has recently launched a brand new range of eyeshadows that are so good I just had to share.

The Chanel OMBRE PREMIÈRE collection is comprised of 8 gorgeous smooth cream shadows and 16 powder shadows.

They are long wearing, blend out like a dream, and are designed to mix, match and layer!

The shades include a little something for every mood: lux neutrals, bright brilliant colors and the most fantastic metallics I have ever seen.

I popped into the Chanel Beauty Boutique at the Forum Shops to give you a peek at this shadow game-changing collection. Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow

Chanel Ombre Premiere Powder

The Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow is absolute PERFECTION!  

Seriously, Chanel dropped the mic with this product. It delivers intense pigment like no other.


These swatches are with just one swipe of my finger.  Yeah, the color payoff is THAT good and it’s long-wearing, too!

The powder shadows come in three different finishes: matte, satin or metallic, have a super soft silky texture and blend out like magic.

Abracadabra fab-u-lous.  I am OBSESSED with Gris Anthracite.

Chanel Ombre Premiere Cream

The cream shadows are both lux and effortless.

Chanel Ombre Premiere Cream

Quick and easy to use, just a few swipes with your finger across the eyelid and it’s eyeshadow perfection.  Honestly these are a dream come true for someone who doesn’t want to have to spend alot of time on their makeup application.

Rich but not at all heavy, they glide smoothly over the eyelid and aren’t sticky, so you can wear several layers and still enjoy the lightweight feeling.

All the shades are chic and classic, totally wearable with not too much shimmer or glitter.

The cream shadows can also be layered with the powder shadows to make them even richer.

This shadow collection has quickly jumped to number one on my beauty must-have list.

The Chanel Ombre Premiere Eyeshadow Collection is Available at The Chanel Beauty Boutique in The Forum Shops.
