Now, part two of my many empties! Continue reading to see what makeup, body, and hair products I’ve used up. You can find part one here.
As I’ve mentioned previously, since I am moving towards a cruelty-free lifestyle, I will not be including any of the usual product information that I usually include (links, price, size) for non-cruelty-free products.
Urban Decay Naked 24/7 Double-Ended Eye Pencil in Whiskey/Zero (2 x 0.01 oz, $18): Unfortunately, this shade is no longer available on Sephora or the Urban Decay website. Although I didn’t use up either side of this wonderful eye pencil, I got a lot of good use out of it. I just decided to toss it because it had been way too long that I had owned it so it was definitely past its expiration date. I really like the Urban Decay eyeliner formulations so I may revisit them in the future.
Lancôme Cils Booster XL Mascara Base: This has been a longtime favorite, but as Lancôme is not a cruelty-free brand, I will have to find a good dupe.
YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 in Rose: Another favorite. I was so sad to find out that Fresh does test on animals when required by law 😦
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil Easy Shape & Fill
YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer
Hair, Body, Etc
Crabtree & Evelyn Bath & Shower Gel
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray (full size 8.5 oz, $46): Oribe products smell amazing, and this one was no different. This travel size was pretty small, so I don’t think it was enough for me to form an opinion on the product itself. I have another travel size of this product, so I may give an update after I use up that one.
Bumble and bumble’s Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil: This was one of the rare expensive shampoos that I had been willing to splurge on. Sadly, bumble and bumble is not cruelty free 😦
Bumble and bumble Don’t Blow It Fine (H)air Styler
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil: The fragrance on this was way too strong for my tastes.
SKINFOOD Intensive Shea Butter Cream In-Shower: I’ve written a dedicated review on this. I’m having a difficult time determining for certain whether SKINFOOD is cruelty-free, but it seems like it’s sold in China, so I will no longer be purchasing products from them to err on the side of caution.
Trader Joe’s Coffee Body Scrub (8 oz, $4.99): This wasn’t a bad scrub by any means, but the coffee grounds made way too much of a mess for me to enjoy using this.
L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Transforming Oil-in-Cream
L’Oréal Paris Color Vibrancy Nourishing Conditioner
