Sampling Sunday: Week 1

Hi there!

I thought of a new series that I will feature every Sunday.
Why?
Well, if you're an Ulta and Sephora junkie like me, you have a LOT of samples laying around...but you may have not given them a try.

I figured I might as well share my thoughts about these products, so here we are.

Here's what I tried this week:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

1: The POREfessional is a pretty incredible product from Benefit. This is my favorite of the bunch and have been using this for a while, actually. I got some samples of it this week which is great since I'm running low! A little bit goes a long way, which is important for me considering that price tag. I really think that it does minimize the appearance of my massive pores!

2: They're Real Push-Up Liner is interesting. I'm not a liquid liner kinda gal, but I did have fun giving this a whirl. It is a little messy and I think I need a little more practice with it, but I do like how blue the black liner makes my eyes look:
I'm just wearing my trio of favorite eye products that are highlighted by this liner. I'm not sure I'd spend the $24 on the full size but maybe after I practice a bit more and get used to this look I could consider it.

3: Living Proof Full Thickening Cream: meh, it's fine I guess. I didn't notice any difference with this product. Once the sample's gone it's gone.

4: Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine is fun. I definitely noticed my blonde locks looking shinier when I used it this week. However, it also looked greasy if I put on the product too close to my roots. Even though it doesn't take much product to get the job done, I wouldn't spend the $40 on the full size. I like the product but not the price. Call me cheap, but I'd rather pay half as much for Sebastian Trilliant

What do you think? Do you like this series? Want to join me on Sundays? I could host a link-up!

Have a good one!

I've been wondering about the They're Real Push Up Liner because I love the mascara so much. Great review :)

I like this...as you know, I don't use much, but it's fun to watch you experiment. I love the eye liner!

I have massive pores as well so I am going to have to check that stuff out. Also, I love beauty products so I am excited for this new series.
