Take out the trash #7: March – May 2016 empties

beauty empties skincare makeup review
I feel so accomplished when I finish lots of products, so this is quite a positive post for me. It also seems to go in waves of time when everything finishes at the same time which means I can go shopping again ad try new products.

So you can imagine how excited I was at seeing the new Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils on the stands a few weeks ago and curious to see if they had come out with a dupe.
