Take out the trash #2: November empties 2014

It's the end of the month and time to go through my zebra bag in the bathroom and see what I managed to finish in the past period. My last empties post was in September (you can read it here) and apparently I was a good beauty addict and finished up a lot of stuff in the mean time! Cutting to the chase, let's take out our cosmetic trash!


  • Syoss Anti-Grease Dry Shampoo: my savior for my second and third day hair. I have tried others available at the drugstore (not Batiste) and this one is my favorite. Too bad it is not stocked in my drugstore anymore, sigh!
  • Tresemme Colour Vibrance Protection Shampoo: a good shampoo for colored hair that lathers well and protects the color from fading. I'm not going to repurchase because I had gotten it in London and it is not particularly good compared to other brands like Syoss.
  • Revlon Professional NutriColor Creme 500: my one and only color-depositing conditioner, acts in 3 minutes, revives the color incredibly leaving the hair silky soft.This was in the shade Fire Red but it was a bit too orange for my taste. I already have another one in the color 600 Purple red because it is more effective at neutralizing the orange hues that my hair gets when the color fades.
  • La Roche Posay Effaclar Astringent Toner: this is my favorite exfoliating toner. Helps my skin a lot and I already have a new one in place.
  • The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum-in-oil: I went through 2 or 3 of these and adore the feeling of it on the skin. It does a good job at nourishing and hydrating my skin. I am really tempted to buy another one but I want to see if Santa Claus will bring me a valid alternative to this one (hint hint).
  • La Roche Posay Effaclar Mat: this is a mattifying moisturizer and the only one that for only 10€ actually does the job. I still need to order this but it is high on my to buy list.
  • L'Oreal Nude Magique Eau de Teint in 140: I raved about this here and many other times and I already have another one in use. It is a lovely light coverage liquid foundation that does only the necessary to uniform the skin and doesn't look like foundation on the skin at all. Love it!
  • Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 20: a wonderful creamy under-eye concealer, I use it almost every time I wear makeup. I highly recommend it and have another one almost to the end.
So here are all the products I finished lately. I am thinking of making it a monthly post, would you be interested?
Do you use any f these products before or are you interested to hear more about them in a separate review?


  1. Vorrei tanto provare l'olio della The Body Shop non appena termino quello che sto usando ora! E anche il correttore della Maybelline mi tenta molto ^__^

  2. I love the effaclar matte cream.. It really helped me with the oiliness :)
    But I didn't like so much the Fit me concealer.
    Nice empties sweetie!!


  3. I absolutely love the TBS Vit E Serun in oil myself! I would like to try the Effaclar Mat. :)

  4. The Syoss dry shampoo sounds fab! I've put off trying the body shop serum in oil as I've heard it's not great for oily skin but if it works well for you I may have to give it a go! :)

    1. I heard the same thing from Caroline Hiron's blog (she thinks it's too rich maybe) so now i just ordered the pai rosehip oil and will try that for a bit. I loved tbs one but it didn't improve my breakouts, left my dry cheeks wonderful though. I don't know..

  5. I really like the sound of the La Roche Posay Effaclar Astringent Toner x

  6. I am looking for a new concealer and had been considering trying the fit me so I will have to give it a go! :) x
