Sample vs. Full Size #3

Sample vs. Full Size #3

Miss Camila (1).pngHello and happy Sunday. Welcome to another episode of Sample vs. Full Size. How about we discuss some overpriced products and whether I’d buy them or not? Yes? Okay. Let’s get started, shall we?

SERAPHINE BOTANICALS Ginger + Gold -Peach & Gold Frosting Blush 

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

Full price: $14

Buy? Yes/No? Why? The shade of this blush is amazing for pretty much every look you decide to go to and it’d definitely be my choice if I could only wear one shade of blush for the rest of my life. The price is higher than what I’m used to paying for products like this, but I would probably consider buying it. It’s not a fuck yes, but’s not a hell no either.

CHELLA Eyebrow Cream in Tantalizing Taupe 

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

Full price: $26

Buy? Yes/No? Why? Hell no! I’m not crazy enough to spend nearly $30 on an eyebrow cream. I mean, I could get an eyebrow pencil which does the same for $3. I love this shade, and I love how it makes my brows look, especially on days when I like to have them darker, but I wouldn’t even consider buying this product.

TARTE COSMETICS Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer 

Full size: I got a sample of the bronzer (3 g or 0.11 oz). The full-size version weighs 0.32 oz.

Full price: $30

Buy? Yes/No? Why? Look, I understand that Tarte is a high-end brand and that means that its products are expensive. This is obviously a great brand, I’m not going to deny the fact that I love the samples I get, but I just don’t feel good spending that much money on a single makeup item. I mean, yesterday my best friend and I went to have lunch and the bill was even cheaper than that

PURETEM Purevera Emulsion 

Full size: I got a teeny tiny sample. The full size product contains 130 mL.

Full price: $18

Buy? Yes/No? Why? This is a product I actually used a while ago, so I don’t really remember my exact thoughts on it. I’m sure my review is somewhere in an Empties post. It is a moisturizer I’d wear for after showering, before getting started with my makeup routine. I would pay $18 for a moisturizer because I think skin care is super important and goes beyond looking nice. I also think that given the size of the product, it’s going to last me a while, so it’s worth the price.

TRESTIQUE Mini Concealer Crayon in Porcelain 

Full size: I got the mini version of the crayon.

Full price: $24

Buy? Yes/No? Why? I actually got this product in full size, and not just this, but a whole Trestique kit. I like the concept of stick concealer and I’ve enjoyed this thoroughly, but I wouldn’t buy it again, and not just because of the price. I just think there are many great options when it comes to concealer and I don’t want to be “stuck” with just the one.

As always, let me know which products you’d buy and why.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila
