product empties #1

Tada ~ my first ever "empties" post! Before getting into this whole makeup and skincare addiction business, I've never emptied anything other than facial cleansers, nor have I hit pan on anything other than powder pacts. Which is why creating a series dedicated to product empties and "hit pan" products is quite a feat for me. Since the first half of 2016 just ended, I thought it would be a good idea to show which items I've managed to use up! Some of these took years to finish, but hey, that's still an achievement!

May 2016 photodiary

Hi everyone! Just the usual life update from me. The past month wasn't very eventful, but I'm trying my best to make this a monthly thing, because I tend to take a ton of photos and I don't want to spam you all with two to three months' worth of photos in one post. So here goes!

Instagram beauty haul

Instagram beauty haul | chainyan.co
An Instagram beauty haul or, more aptly, a bunch of things I got from various Instagram shops and sellers. There is a reason why I try not to follow shop accounts on Instagram–to not fall into the trap that is impulsive buying. But as you can see, that certainly isn't the case here. That worked well for a while, up until I discovered the joys of ~*swapping*~ and ~*pre-loved cosmetics*~. The idea of swapping makeup may seem a bit gross, but the thing is, sometimes people sell items that have barely been used for a fraction of a price. It's a great way to try things that you're not 100% sure of buying at full price yet. That said, not everything on this post is pre-loved; I also bought a couple things that I've been wanting to get!
