October Empties

October Empties

This month’s empties contains two amazing holy grail products and one former favorite. Simply click on the full review link at the end of each section if you want to know a little more about that particular product. Let’s have a look at all of them, starting with the best of the bunch.

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara

This is honestly the best mascara I have ever tried (including several high end ones) and my current holy grail. Max Faxtor have created a mascara that provides volume and length, doesn’t clump or smudge, and is perfectly suitable for my sensitive eyes. What more can a girl want? I have just finished the black waterproof version, which is my go-to type of mascara, but I also have a new brown-black version of this waiting in my make-up drawer. Can’t wait. Full Review.

Antipodes Avocado and Pear Nourishing Night Cream

The second star product in this batch, this moisturising night cream contains one of my favorite skincare ingredients: avocado. This organic cream smells lovely and adds a great deal of moisture without feeling heavy. I have just ordered the Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream: doesn’t that just sound dreamy as well?! Full Review.
October Empties

Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron

This light weight gel contains high quality hyaluronic acid that helps your skin retain moisture. Essentially, the serum doesn’t do much it’s own, but helps your skin benefit better from any product you apply afterwards.  Incorporated into a proper skincare routine, this can make all the difference for dehydrated skins. I have been leaning more towards facial oils now the colder months are approaching, but this is a great light option for all skin types. Full Review.

Sukin Natural Deodorant

I prefer natural deodorants but finding a nice one can be a bit hit or miss. This Sukin deodorant just wasn’t it for me: the fragrance lasted only a few hours so reapplication during the day was a necessity. I expect my deodorant to at least last for the duration of my 9-5 desk job. Not impressed. October Empties

Batiste Dry Shampoo Floral&Flirty Blush

Batiste used to be my holy grail dry shampoo…until I discovered the Colab range. I did a post comparing the two dry shampoos, so check it out here if you want a bit more information. Batiste is still a decent dry shampoo and much easier to obtain so certainly not a bad purchase. I particularly love this floral scent. Full Review.

I honestly cannot recommend the Max Factor mascara enough: that stuff is just great. Be sure to have a look at it if you are looking for a new mascara.


De lege producten van deze maand bevatten twee geweldige producten en een voormalige favoriet. Wil je meer weten over een van de producten? Klik gewoon op de full review link aan het einde van de beschrijving. Laten we beginnen met de beste producten.

October Empties

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara

Dit is de beste mascara die ik ooit geprobeerd heb (inclusief een aantal luxe merken) en het is echt mijn holy grail. Max Factor heeft een mascara gecreerd die volume en lengte geeft, niet klontert of vlekt, en perfect werkt voor mijn gevoelige ogen. Wat kun je nog meer willen? Ik heb net de zwarte waterproof versie opgemaakt, mijn standaard mascara keuze, maar ik heb ook nog een nieuwe bruin-zwarte klaarliggen. Full Review.

Antipodes Avocado and Pear Nourishing Night Cream

Het tweede top product van deze lege producten is deze hydraterende creme van Antipodes met een van mijn favoriete huidverzorgings ingrediënten: avocado. Deze natuurlijke creme ruikt geweldig en geeft veel hydratatie zonder zwaar aan te voelen. Ik heb net de  Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream bestelt en ik hoop dat die net zo lekker is als de naam klinkt. Full Review.

October Empties

Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron

Deze lichte gel bevat hyaluron zuur van hoge kwaliteit die ervoor zogt dat je huid vocht beter vasthoudt. Dit serum doet op zichzelf niet veel, maar helpt je huid beter profiteren van de product die je erna aanbrengt. Ingebed in een goede huidverzorgingsroutine kan dit product echt het verschil maken voor uitgedroogde huidjes. Ik gebruik tijdens de koudere maanden liever gezichtsolie, maar dit is een fijne en lichte optie voor alle huid types. Full Review.

Sukin Natural Deodorant

Ik gebruik het liefst natuurlijke deodorant, maar het is nog best een zoektocht om een fijne te vinden. Deze Sukin deodorant was het net niet voor mij: de geur bleef maar n paar uur hangen dus je moet echt opnieuw aanbrengen tijdens de dag. Ik verwacht dat mijn deo tenminste mijn 9-5 kantoor baantje volhoudt. Niet echt onder de indruk.

October Empties

Batiste Dry Shampoo Floral&Flirty Blush

Batiste was echt mijn favoriete droogshampoo tot ik de Colab collectie ontdekte. Wil je weten waarom? Check dan deze vergelijkingspost voor alle details. Batiste blijft een fijne droogshampoo die hier in Nederland veel makkelijker te krijgen is. Deze bloemengeur is een van de fijnste luchtjes. Full Review.

Ik kan die Max Factor mascara echt niet genoeg aanraden. Kijk er zeker even naar als je nog op zoekt bent naar een nieuwe mascara.

      I can only get it via feelunique, which is far from ideal. Don’t know if they ship to you?!

          I just wishes feel unique would pay taxes on the stuff, so it wouldn’t get stuck in customs. Has that happened to you?

    I agree with you regarding natural deodorants. One that I tried and really impressed me is by a company called Lavanilla . They have a few scents and are pretty good considering they’re au naturel.. Also weleda’s deodorants aren’t too bad .. Have you tried either of those ? Thx for the tip btw regarding baptiste vs colab.. Always wondered if it was worth the hype , I guess it is 😊

      Oh thanks for the great tips! I love my Dr Organic, that one really works for me and they recently expended the scent range 🙂
      I wondered about Colab as well, but it is definitely worth it for me 🙂 xx

      I have a Dior one as well which I love, but not as much as the Max Factor one (I know, heresy right!) They are very similar, so definitely try MF to see if it works as well for you.

    Oh, lovely post, Anne!
    Reading empties is so fun to me, it’s just incredible seeing products that people love so much they ran out of them! 😀

    That mascara seems so good! I might have to give it a go when I run out of my Roller Lash! (which, by the looks of it will be happening by the end of this year)

    Hope you’re having a wonderful evening/day. 🙂

      Thanks Dora! I love reading these on other blogs as well, always a great quick way to tell if someone loved or hated something.
      Do try the mascara! I recommend it to everyone and so far everyone loves it 🙂

    The MF False Lash mascara is the same as the CoverGirl LashBlast here in North America and YES, it’s the best mascara ever! It’s my HG at ANY price point!
    Too bad the Sukin deodorant didn’t work for you – I was contemplating that one but I decided against it. Glad I did!
    I had the Hydraluron ages ago after all the hype I was a bit let down. It left a sticky residue on my skin and I didn’t find it all that hydrating…

      Oh is it the same? I had no idea, how funny! And this explains the hype about the covergirl one for me, which we can’t get here.
      As for Hydraluron, you really need to combine it with a supermoisturising product to see the benefits. I didn’t really have the sticky issue though.

    There it is….. my FAV mascara of all time *happy sigh* all thanks to you Anne!!! We need to start some sort of campaign to get everyone to try this – they’ve no idea what they’re missing out on otherwise 😀
    Great favourites, I always love your goodies – you introduce me to so many new brands. Roll on November, hope you have a great day ahead chum 🙂 Karen xoxo

        I agree Anne, it’s an essential. Ahh does work get crazy this time of year for you? Hope it’s not too stressful, always a made panic in all things come this time of year 😦 All well here thank you lovely, enjoying a week of rest – catching up on cleaning, organising, de cluttering & pumpkin carving of all things! Halloween always seems to bring out the inner child lol Is it a big holiday over there? XXX

          A little crazy, but it gets crazy everywhere towards Christmas 😉
          Pumpkin carving sounds so fun! Not really a big deal here, though they stores are trying with candy and pumpkins. Not really catching on yet. xxx

            Not a bad thing to be honest Anne, it’s starting to really take off here – don’t mind it to a certain extent but it does get a little commercialised. Carving pumpkins is fun… it’s the rest of the nonsense I’ve little interest in. The older I get the less tolerant I am to gimmicky fun lol xxx
