July Beauty Balance part 1

Here are my July empties. I’ll post incoming items tomorrow.

During my previous update, I had a total of 38 items leaving my collection over what came into my collection. It actually was a pretty cruddy update, in the sense that I had quite a few incoming items. I do have incoming items this month, but not too overwhelmingly so.

Here are my empties:

Starting top left, I finished a second Garnier miceller cleanser. I do not like this product, this is the last in my collection, hope to never receive it as a sample again.

I also have a teal eyeliner that went off. I have tried sharpening it past the point where it’s gone off, but the product itself has gone fully off. I used to use this a lot, and I am sad I didn’t continue to do so. On the other hand, I have plenty of teal eyeshadows in my collection that would serve a similar purpose. So, I won’t be on the hunt for another teal liner.

I finished my travel size becca first light primer. I love this product, and it’s in the running for a repurchase someday when I finish all my other primers.

I finished 3 perfume samples all of which I enjoyed and also won’t purchase.

I have a sample size of it cosmetics cc cream (original formula) and while I do like the it cosmetics cc creams, this shade, light, is actually not that good on me despite the fact that light shade in the matte and illuminating formulas are fine on me. No repurchase and look forward to finishing up the other container in my collection.

I finished my AOA studios setting powder. At only a dollar, this is a perfectly serviceable setting powder and I might repurchase if I was making another AOA order. I’d pick up a few of them at a time in that case, as there really isn’t much product in there.

I finished up The Ordinary glycolic acid toner and I’ve already repurchased.

I finished the IGK texture spray which I liked but is not my favorite, won’t repurchase.

I finished my Big Sexy Hair hairspray, which I am very likely to repurchase but I’ve got travel sizes and hairspray backups to work through first.

Then there’s two sachets which do not count. One was a hair cc cream by Alterna which I liked a lot and the other was a tula exfoliating pad which was deceiving. I thought it would be some sort of proper chemical exfoliant but it was one of those weird ones with the product that balls up on your skin to cause a physical exfoliation. Hard pass.

This leaves 49 items leaving my collection over what entered it for the month of July.  My incoming items are a bit more reasonable this month but I’ll still add them in a separate post. That being said, 49 is certainly not where I’ll stay for the month, that number will be going back down a bit.
