Recent Empties in Cosmetics, Skincare, & Haircare

Am I the only one who seems to run out of everything at the same time?!

I swear every six months or so I wake up and every container/tube/bottle/spray is empty.

And it always happens on Monday. #ofcourse

The silver lining is that there are some randomly good deals right now so I thought I’d share what products I’m repurchasing and which ones I’m trying something new with.


    • Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Tonic. I’ve been using this since 2008 {twice a day after I wash my face} and I love how refreshing it is.
    • Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Supplement. Another product I’ve been using since 2008 {I use in the morning after the tonic}. For five years or so I just kind of put it on my cheeks and nose-area, but began putting it all over my face as I’ve aged.


  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation. This past April C. & I took a trip to Cumberland Island and stayed at the Greystone Inn. To get to the island you have to take a boat. There are no grocery stores or gas stations, and for sure no Sephoras on that tiny island! About fifteen minutes before we arrived at the ferry I realized I had left my entire makeup bag at home. And for someone with rosacea, uneven skin tone, and blonde eyelashes (I’m posting this before and after below just so you’ll see how badly I need foundation), this was a nightmare. Thankfully there was an Ulta and in about five minutes a saleslady sold me on this product. And I haven’t looked back since! I like the “build-a-bility” of it in the areas I need the most coverage (cheeks!).
  • Bobbi Brown Corrector. On the eve of my 34th birthday {I “give myself” a new product every year to try on my birthday–it’s a fun tradition!} I went into Nordstrom, sat down at the Bobbi Brown counter, and said it was time for under eye makeup. I use this first to even out the dark circles.
  • Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener. I put this on top of the corrector under my eye and on the inside corners and it brightens up the whole area.
  • Mac Eye Brow Pencil. This was my birthday present to myself on my 35th birthday. Up until then I had never used an eyebrow pencil because I have such full eyebrows I didn’t think I needed to. Boy, was I wrong.

(And even though I’m not out of it yet, this {redness corrector primer} is what I bought myself on my 36th birthday in case you were wondering and I use it everyday.)


I mentioned the great sales going on right now and I picked up a Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer for $13.60 at Nordstrom (they always have free shipping too). I’ve heard GREAT things about it so I’m excited to try it!

Have any of you tried any new products lately? Especially an under eye cream you love {I’ve tried Bobbi Brown, Lancome, and Rodan + Fields and they’ve either given me styes or done nothing at all}. I’m all ears!
