#SampleSunday Empty Samples

I’ve made it a goal of mine to use all my samples up since I have so many and I foresee myself getting more especially since I plan on getting another beauty subscription (any recommendations will help!). So I just want to share with you all my empty samples and my thoughts on them. I don’t have too many but I am trying.

I got a sample of this yaby foundation a while back and I wanted to use it. I was really surprised at how cakey this felt on my face. It was heavy and I really didn’t like it. I wont be purchasing this that is for sure.

I feel like everyone has gotten a sample of theBalm Put a Lid on Itthe eye primer wasn’t too bad and did it’s job after 9 hours at work it did start to wear off a bit, but I have really oily lids so it is hard for me to find a primer that lasts all day. I may purchase this if it goes on sale.

the Naobay Oxygenating cream is the best product out of the three. A little cream went a long way and this sample actually lasted longer than I thought it would. It left my skin feeling very soft and hydrated. I think I would purchase this.

Are there any samples you have tried lately?

Hall of Shame; December Fails

Usually, on this blog, I like to talk about things I like or at least things that are okay. When I review products I like to tell you all the positives as well as the negatives to let you develop your own opinion. However, there are some products that just perform so awful that it upsets me. I hate using my money and getting a product that doesn’t work or breaks or just makes false claims.

 

So I decided to put it into a sort of Hall of Shame. If these products worked for you let me know! Maybe I just got a one-off and I should try it again.

This month there were just two so it wasn’t too bad.

First, off the NYX Epic Black Mousse Liner, I was so mad when I opened this and it was dried and unusable. It had shriveled up and looked like a sad piece of coal. There was no way of using it. While I love NYX products, and I had such high hopes for this liner, I couldn’t help but be discouraged by this. I actually got it from an NYX store so I can’t blame a drugstore or whatnot on stocking old products.

The second was theBalm Mr. Write (now) this thing was solid and refused to line. I tried on my hand multiple times, I even tried cutting the tip and using a lighter to melt it slightly. It was just too much of a hassle and such a disappointment. I don’t use theBalm products often because they are slightly pricey for me, so I took a chance on it and it seemed to just bite me in the butt.

 

Don’t worry I am not writing the brands off *yet* just these particular products.

 

have you used any products that were not up to snuff?
