Misc Sephora Samples Reviews

bareMinerals Matte Foundation in Fairly Light + Mini Kabuki Brush + bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer: ( I got this with a code or something: YOURGIFT I think it was) This made me fall in love with bareMinerals foundation, it works great if you are in a rush, for a quick look and the coverage is pretty good. The kabuki works just fine and it's great to carry around in your purse. Prime Time makes my skin feel amazing before applying make up and the size is great for your purse too! I still have a little bit of foundation left, but I will be restocking on this item for sure!

TendSkin - Tend Skin: This item is supposed to help prevent ingrown hairs. I'd say it did help me a bit, but made my skin burn so much! It has a really strong smell, so make sure you are in a room with plenty of air circulation when you apply it, cuz it makes me a little dizzy. Might buy a full size of this.  

Fresh -Umbrian Clay Mattifying Serum: This really didn't do much for me. It gets absorbed quick and has a fresh smell, like a veggie smoothie with cucumber. Won't be buying this EVAR, cuz I got no results at all.

PeterThomas Roth - Instant Firmx™: This didn't do anything for me either and I don't really need to be firming my skin, cuz it's firm!

Clinique- Clarifying lotion #3: I have combo skin and this is my go to toner, it works wonders for me.I love to make sure all my make up is removed. When I use this and the cotton is clean, I'm happy! I bought the 13.5 oz version of this, back in March and it will run out soon. I decided to pick up the big one this time, cuz I know I love it.

BECCA -Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF 25+ in Opal: This was too dark for me and went straight to the trash cuz it was already opened when I found this out.

 Boscia -Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel: Didn't notice anything special about this(besides the fact that it's black!O.O), it had a cool-minty feeling when I applied it.

Swatches: Mushroom on the left, Sin on the Right
Givenchy- Mister Light Instant Light Corrective Pen: This worked fine, just like any concealer, didn't notice something special about it that made it stand out against other concealers.

Caudalie -Premier Cru La Crème: I squeezed this out to the last drop! I loved how it felt on my skin, it would get absorbed so quick and leave my skin feeling great. I won't really buy it, cuz it's more like an anti aging product(worth $150 lol!) and I don't need that.

 UrbanDecay Eyeshadow card: It had samples of Sin and Mushroom(eyeshadows) and Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, this was my first time trying Urban Decay products and I became addicted to them ever since. The eyeshadows pigment amazingly well. They have gorgeous glitter and even if they are not cream eyeshadow they are super creamy, you know what I mean? The Primer Potion works great too, it makes the colors look gorgeous and I get no creasing or fall out.
Ojon- Rare Blend Oil Total Hair Therapy: Nothing special about this at all, I didn't notice a major difference in my hair. Won't buy this at all, I'd rather stick to my almond oil(and it's cheaper!). By the way I got this with my wasted(in vain) Sephora points.

 Disclaimer: I purchased this with my own money, and this is my own personal opinion :)
