It’s been a while since I’ve done an empties post—not since the end of spring! So here is my empties post for this past summer. I think it makes more sense for me to do quarterly/seasonal empties rather than monthly empties, since it really does take me a while to go through products.
All prices are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise specified.
Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup in Nude (150). I’ve been using Nearly Naked for a few years now, after I decided that my previous drugstore liquid foundation favorite, L’Oréal True Match, was a little too greasy and possibly breaking me out (I no longer think it was the culprit, though it’s still a bit greasy to me). I can’t tell you how many bottles of Nearly Naked I’ve already gone through: it’s sheer but buildable, gives a nice, semi-matte finish, has SPF 20 with titanium dioxide, and is quite reasonably priced at around $10–12 on sale. The shade I use, Nude (150), is a good match for my NC30-ish skintone, particularly in summer when I’m more tan. It’s perhaps a tad dark in the winter, but a little powder over it tends to correct that. I like to keep a few foundations in rotation, and Revlon Nearly Naked is my drugstore pick.
