Empties Roll Call

I thought it was time to share some recent empty products with y'all. All of these products I have tried for the first time. I have thoughts on each below!

Whew, is that a mouthful. This product definitely lives up to it's very long name. Amazing. One of the best concealers I've used. Easy to apply, easy to blend and lasted me a good long time! It isn't heavy on the skin and it also doesn't separate anywhere under the eye. And no creasing! 
Summary: Worth the investment.

I'm always perusing the lash aisle at the local pharmacy and picked these guys up due to their understated nature. They seemed to pack a little more punch than the demi-wispie but still not enough for someone to realize they weren't my lashes. Perfect. Well, after wearing them a couple of times, I still prefer the demi-wispies. They will forever be my go-to.

I'm pictured wearing the #110 below.

I've been trying to steer away from chemicals in my every day life as much as possible. I saw this toothpaste in Lush and it seemed like the best alternative. It is powder that comes in a little tub and you dip your toothbrush into it. Overall, not too bad. There isn't a super minty clean feeling afterwards so if you're into that sort of thing, this isn't for you. If you're willing to forgo some traditional toothpaste flavors & consistency, this is really good. My teeth haven't gotten more yellow since ditching my whitening toothpaste and dipping your toothbrush in the tub makes it very convenient. 

Your mouth is one of the most absorbent places in your body and there are up to 7 toothpaste ingredients that are toxic according to some. We also end up swallowing at least some in every brushing. So this is definitely an area to read up on if you're trying to eliminate chemicals from your every day life.
