December Empties

December Empties

I wanted to share my December empties with you. I rarely do posts like this because I normally just forget and toss the packaging, but I made an effort to remember to save them this month!

I finished a ton of skincare products that had been lingering this month!

I completely derped with my backdrop when I hung it up. Phaedra kept distracting me, wanting me to play with her. I redid  my makeup 3 times (kept screwing up my eyeshadow) until I was happy with it, so by the time I finished I was determined to try recording a new video with my new camera (the Canon G7X). I’ve come to the conclusion that the camera is awesome, it desperately needs a mic. Once again, Cyberlink PowerDirector 13 failed me because the sound for the video was fine in that program but once uploaded to Youtube it sounded like crap, lots of white noise. I need to just learn Adobe Premiere and be done with Cyberlink. It feels like such a second rate product at this point.

What beauty products have you finished this month? What will you be repurchasing?



  • Purple is your color and it just makes me so happy hah! You have such a beautiful smile- it’s contagious!

  • There’s a couple of products there that sound interesting that I’ll need to check out. I did just finish a tube of Paula’s Choice tinted moisturiser with spf. I really love their products and thanks to you for putting me on to them.

    Does the hair mask come in a version suitable for copper coloured hair?

    Also, eye makeup looks fabulous, camera is great, and happy new year 🙂

  • I like empties vids because we can get a real sense of what’s being used. I find with new product reviews (that I still love) there can be hype but the empties is where it’s at for a real skincare and occasionally makeup, review.
    It’s just too bad none of us use any one makeup item to repurchase often.

    • I’ve hit pan on Urban Decay Walk of Shame because I use that all the time as my base shade / blending out other shades. It’s darker than my skintone but covers redness and works so well.

  • Another fantastic look Phyrra – love those purples on you. The backdrop isn’t important, I didn’t notice it at all. Great video. The only beauty products I really do finish is my skincare – Cetaphil moisture cream, QV cleanser and daily moisturiser, Natio Mature Age serum and my Nude by Nature Primer. All cruelty free. I will be purchasing the bareMinerals Soft and Smoky eye palette when I can get my hands on it.
    Happy New Year Phyrra.

    • Thank you! Yeah I go through skincare like crazy. It’s so much easier to finish than eyeshadows are lipsticks because I’m constantly trying to rotate those. Happy New Year!

  • Awesome video. Love ur makeup. So when can u come do mine? Lol. Love all of the purples and highlighting. Just stunningly beautiful girl.
