After a try are they worth a second buy?

I've noticed a lot of bloggers and youtubers making posts on their monthly empties. I wanted to jump on the bandwagon and show you the products I used up and if they are worth a second buy.

Left to right: Witch Anti-Blemish Skin Clearing Primer, L'Oreal Studio Secrets Anti-shine Primer, L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara, Jimmy Choo Perfume, Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel, Rimmel Sunshimmer Bronzing Powder in Light Shimmer and ELF Studio Blusher in Tickled Pink

Witch Anti-Blemish Skin Clearing Primer
I picked this up a while ago when I was searching for a day time primer that wasn't too heavy. This stuff is light weight, sinks in quickly and keeps most shine at bay. I wouldn't say it's 'skin clearing' but it hasn't made my skin any worse.
Verdict: Repurchase

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Anti-shine Primer
This is my night time primer, for nights out I wanted something a little more stronger on the anti-shine aspect. This stuff, along with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, make a perfect combination for matte skin all night long.
Verdict: Repurchase

L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara
I bought this after seeing Vivianna from Vivianna Does Makeup feature it in many of her favourites videos. This is the holy grail of lengthening mascaras. It's easy to use and you can build up layers for more volume. I did notice a little bit of upper lid transfer through out the day so I will buy the waterproof one next.
Verdict: Repurchase 

Jimmy Choo Perfume
This reminded me of the Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb perfume when I bought it, it was cheaper and I decided I'd go out on a limb and try this one instead of repurchasing Flowerbomb. I liked the scent at first but towards the end I really hated the scent, not sure what changed my mind though!
Verdict: No repurchase

Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel
I previously used powders to fill my eyebrows in but I switched to this. It's long lasting and easy to use, not too expensive either.
Verdict: Repurchase

Rimmel Sunshimmer Bronzing Powder in Light Shimmer
This bronzing powder has been lurking in my collection for ages so I just wanted to use it up asap so I could move onto the Bourjois chocolate one. It's got quite a bit of shimmer which I didn't really like so I'm going to stick with Bourjois.
Verdict: No repurchase

ELF Studio Blusher in Tickled Pink
I really liked this ELF blusher, I thought the colour was great for everyday. I have a huge collection of blushers so I won't be repurchasing as I need to start using the others up.
Verdict: No repurchase

What empties do you have this month and will you be giving them a second buy?
