Things I’ve Used Up to the Last Drop


Who doesn’t love a good product empties, ‘things I’ve used up to the very last squeeze/squirt/drop’ video? A great way to see what I’ve loved so much to use up right to the very end and a comforting act that shows that I’m actually working my way through my slightly ridiculous stash (phew!). It’s been a while since I spewed out the contents of my recycling box online, partly because it was just resulting in a video parade of used bottles of Bioderma, so I’ve left it a while and with underneath my bed starting to resemble the landscape of a refuse site I thought it was time to share. And guess what? Not one Bioderma to be seen. Was it pants? Will I repurchase? Have I repurchased already (I answer yes to a surprising number)? All will be answered…


  • Hey Anna! Just watched your video and wanted to recommend my all-time favourite mascara, Maybelline’s Illegal Definiton Mascara, to you! I was using the Telescopic mascara for ages before I accidently discovered the Illegal Definiton. A friend bought it for me, thinking that this was my favourite mascara. At first I was really sad, but I thought I’d give it a go anyway, and oh boy… I found my holy grail mascara!

    It gives the perfect length and definition, it stays where it’s supposed to stay all freakin’ day long, it doesn’t “crumble” (which is very important for me since I’m wearing contacts)… it’s simply amazing.

    So if you are looking for a new mascara after using up your stock of Telescopics, I can highly recommend the Illegal Definiton!

    I could rattle on for hours about how much I love this magic wand, but this comment is already way too long 😀

    Have a nice day!

    Love that you did an empties video! Can this be a regular thing? Or at least as regularly as you use stuff up!

    Always love watching product empties videos. It’s always a great way to see which products are worth it or not. This one surely didn’t disappoint.

    Hi Anna! Just watched your empties video and your weekly vlog#15 today and was thoroughly entertained by your run!! Congrats to you dearie and thanks for sharing with us. I can’t wait to go to your meet up on Sunday not physically of course but in spirit. Hope all goes well for you and Lily!! See ya there!! 🙂

  • Loved the video…a completely empties video on a regular basis !!

  • I like empties posts, so keep ’em coming! Stella sounds like a really lovely perfume. I don’t think I’ve sniffed it yet, but I do like CK so if you say I’ll like it then I’m sure I will 🙂 You talked about a lot of products that I am not familiar with (mostly skin care) but I love your enthusiasm when you talk about them 🙂 And I do that too, when my pump foundation are ’empty’ I just take out the pump and ‘ketchup’ out whatever I can 🙂

  • I love the title of the post- it’s so unique from the typical “empties” videos/posts!

  • I’m always using my fave fragrances to the very last drop -so worth it!

  • I loved this video Anna, makes me want to make some purchases, especially the Bumble and Bumble shampoo! Can’t wait to try!

  • I love empties videos! I really enjoyed watching yours!


  • I’m glad you saved up for awhile, they can get super repetitive when someone is obsessed with the same products! I can’t believe they are discontinuing the telescopic mascara, it’s such a favourite!

  • So many fab empties! I’m hooked on the Oribe texturizing spray and Stella perfume is one of my all-time faves! Have a wonderful weekend, Anna! xo
