My 2019 “Empties”. Beauty Products You Need to Try

Happy Friday! Let’s chat beauty. I’ve been wanting to do an “empties review” for a long time now and completely forgot about it! I stumbled upon the bin that I had been saving empty products in and looking at the items, they were literally from the entire year of 2019. I don’t know if you guys like these kind of reviews, but if you do, I will continue to keep track and do more in the future, so let me know in the comments!

My 2019 “Empties”:

Becca Illuminating Face Primer: I hit the jackpot with this primer! It gives you such a bright base for foundation – great if you want a dewy look or have natural fullness! (Becca is also known for their highlighters)!

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation: in 2019 this foundation really became a staple in my makeup bag and was one I repurchased a few times. Applies great with a sponge and also this stippling brush!

Tula Gel Creme Moisturizer: great lightweight moisturizer! use code HANNAH to save 20% on Tula site wide!

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick: the perfect mauve color and so creamy!

Laneige Lip Mask: I use this every single night as part of my skincare routine – YOU NEED THIS in your makeup bag!

OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray: this smells nice and fresh like you’re at the hair salon. Love the hold this has and it gives a lot of grit and texture.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz: my go to brow pencil – all of ABH brow products are great, and I love the brow definer and pommade too.

Neutrogena Hydrogel Mask: great mask if you lack moisture! The hydro boost line is amazing!

    I’m obsessed with the Laneige Lip Mask! I use it every night as well, but I feel like that little jar will probably last me a year or two. I only use a little bit every night before bed. I’m adding everything else on your list to try later this year.

      Love the lip mask! Make sure you don’t overuse it past it’s expiry though! I think it’s 12 months for this product!
