Sample vs. Full Size #2

Sample vs. Full Size #2

Miss Camila.pngHello and happy Sunday. Welcome to another episode of Sample vs. Full Size. Today I have five products I can’t wait to talk about. Let’s get started, shall we?

 

 

THE BALM COSMETICS Balm Springs Blush

Full size: I gave away my sample, so I don’t know its weight. The full-size version weighs 5.61g or 0.197oz.

Full price: $21

Buy? Yes/no? Why? I really like this brand and I really liked this blush. I think I gave it away because I had a similar shade already, but I love that it’s a matte and it gives the skin that healthy rosy glow. I wouldn’t pay $21 for a blush like this when Revlon, Elf, and even Almay have great blushes for way less than that.

DOUCCE Maxlash Volumizer Mascara 

Full size: I got the mini version, and there isn’t information on the full-size one.

Full price: $22

Buy? Yes/ No? Why? This is an alright mascara, but I don’t feel it’s superior to others I’ve tried. I gave this away because I already had others I preferred. I wouldn’t buy this in full size because I think there are drugstore mascaras doing a better job for over half the price.

MARGARET DABBS LONDON Treatment Enriched Nail Polish in Green Daylily 

Full size: I got the full size version in by glam bag.

Full price: $22

Buy? Yes/No? Why? I talked more in-depth about this nail polish in a haul, so be sure to check it out. Basically, I like the color but I’m not too sure about the formulation. I think the pricepoint for this is absurd, and I wouldn’t think about buying this or any other shade in the line. I’d rather stick to my $1 nail polish I get at the supermarket, which has a way better formulation and lasts me more than a day.

DELECTABLE BY CAKE BEAUTY Triple Moisture Body Lotion in Coconut & Cream 

Full size: I’m pretty sure I got the travel size version (60 ml or 2 fl. oz). The full size version contains 236 ml or  8 fl. oz.

Full price: The travel size version is $6 and the full size version is $14.

Buy? Yes/No? Why? I already talked about this product in an Empties post, but I don’t remember whether I said I’d buy it or not. Right this second I think I would pay $14 for the full-size version because I really loved the scent and the feel of this lotion, and I think the price is fair. Please don’t make it more expensive!

VASANTI COSMETICS Power Oil Lip Gloss in Super Mom 

Full size: I got the full size version in my glam bag.

Full price: $22

Buy? Yes/No? Why? First and foremost, what is it with companies charging $22 for their products? I absolutely adore this lipgloss and I think both the formulation and the shade are amazing. This could easily be one of my favorite, most-used lippies, but knowing how expensive it is, I’d rather buy the more affordable versions brands like NYX, Maybelline, Revlon, and L’Oreal have to offer.

In the comments, let me know whether you’d buy any of these products and why.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila
