#MOTD: Samples and Travel Size Beauty

Though I don’t post empites on my blog anymore (I use Instagram and Snapchat for that), there is no better feeling than finishing up a product. It’s almost as exciting as trying a new product. That’s exactly why I love trying out sample and travel sized products.
Because of that, as you can imagine, I have quite a few to go through. I have enough to make an entire look using around than $60 while using mainly high-end products. I have listed below where I received these products/whether they were a sample or travel sized. I hope you enjoy the look!

Samples-left-2

 

Clarins Hydra-Essential Cream (Influenster – Deluxe Sample)

Smells lovely but is not cruelty-free!

Estée Edit Pore Vanishing Stick (Sephora – Sample)

Did not leave my skin very smooth as you can tell. Also hard to use and not cruelty-free.

Tony Moly BCDation (Jolie – Foil Packet Sample)

Not quite a colour match but it felt lovely.

NARS Creamy Concealer in Vanilla (Travel Size – $16)

Love this concealer for under the eyes!

NYX HD Shadow Base (ipsy – sample)

It is more of a cream than I am used to but little/no creasing.

Trèstique mini highlight stick (ipsy – Deluxe Sample)

Felt a little thick and chunky. It’s subtle compared to what I am used to.

Make Up For Ever HD powder (travel sized – $24)

I find that this oxidizes my foundation and doesn’t do a whole lot to control shine.

Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Paaarry (Sephora birthday – deluxe sample)

This is a lovely natural blush that lasts!

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil medium/deep (Sephora – deluxe sample)

I am not a huge bronzer user, but this smells nice and isn’t too dark!

Marc Jacobs highliner gel in Blacquer (Sephora birthday gift – deluxe sample)

I feel like this is a standard liner but I do like that it is a twist up rather than one that you have to sharpen!

Urban Decay eyeshadow (Sephora – deluxe sample)

Skimp is a great shade to set any cream shadow or primer, but I was a little disappointed in the quality of these shadows.

  • Skimp all over the eye
  • Guilt all over the lid

Bare Minerals (ipsy)

Fantastic quality and colour!

  • Passion in the outter corner and in the crease

Coastal Scents (ipsy)

These are extremely pigmented and blendable. I am impressed!

  • Greige in the outter corner

Buxom Lash Mascara (travel sized but no longer available – under $25)

Similar to the Too Faced BTS mascara but less chunky/clumpy. A new favourite!

Kat Von D Bow and Arrow liquid lipstick (travel sized but no longer available – $25)

My first time using a KVD liquid lipstick. I am not a matte lip lover but the colour was lovely and it didn’t feel like my lips were gonna peel off like some other liquid lipsticks. Definitely a success.

I hope you enjoyed this look! Do you have enough sample sized products to create a full face?

Til next time, ttfn x
