Empties of 2012: Vol 1

So, nearly three months into 2012, what have I used up so far?  Well for once it's not purely skincare. I've started to make a small dent in using up make up items as well.  SO satisfying!  Items of note overall are the Alpha-H Absolute Eye Complex (already bought a new one), the Klorane Eye Make Up Remover (will be buying another one), the Clarisonic cleanser (surprisingly good) and the Jemma Kidd lip gloss in Rendezvous (will be repurchasing but no time this year).
The NYX Super Fat Marker was terrible.  Really thick, felt nib that dried up really quickly and was impossible to get a neat line with.  I do not recommend.  I DO recommend the L'Oreal Lash Architect 4D mascara though. One of the best I've ever used.
I'm still lamenting the death of that mini Cargo Serengeti lipgloss, and am still annoyed you can't buy it on its own, only in a set.  Very irritating.  Another irritation came from the Sleek Ink Pot in Dominatrix, a black gel liner which I don't rate at all. Another thing that dried up very quickly and wasn't a true black, even when first purchased.
I really like Tresemme products, and this mini 24 hour body shampoo was originally purchased to take on holiday, so I was just using it up.  It's great.  Next to the Dove deodorant is an empty bottle of the Natural Collection body spray in Samphire and Sea Minerals.  I have no idea what possessed me to buy it but I ended up qiute liking it. I mainly used it to spritz on coats and blazers before hanging them up, to keep everything smelling nice and fresh.

That's it for 2012 Empties so far, but my bag is already filling up quite quickly.  It's properly addictive once you start keeping track of what you use up!
