Sample vs. Full Size #7

Sample vs. Full Size #7

Miss Camila (1).pngHello and happy Sunday. Welcome to another episode of “How Cheap Is Camila?” Today I have five products, some from brands that are new to me, and we’ll see if they make the cut. Let’s get started, shall we?

 

GLAMOUR DOLLS X LISA FRANK Bitten & Bronzed Matte Bronzer 

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

Full price: $5.99

Buy? Yes/No? Why? Fuck yes! When I had to look up some brushes on this site for a previous post I was pleasantly surprised with the affordable prices. As I saw who much (how little) this bronzer is, I was once again in awe. I need to check out this brand in depth and get more of their products because I think it’s fantastic that they’re so high-quality and concerned with nice packaging for amazing prices.

MANNA KADAR Cosmetics HD Perfecting Powder 

Full size: I got a sample version of this product. I couldn’t find information of the full size version in the website.

Full price: $29

Buy? Yes/No? Why? Here’s the deal: I don’t currently live in the States, and even though I’m technically a professional makeup artist, I don’t live and breathe makeup, so I don’t always know about the hot brands or products out there. There are possibly many brands that are unknown to me, and that are super hip otherwise, and maybe Manna Kadar is one of those. If that’s the case, then I kind of understand the price, but personally I think new, less recognized brands shouldn’t be that expensive, at least not at first. I clearly wouldn’t pay $29 for a powder from a brand I know, let alone one that is new to me.

BANG BEAUTY Lipgloss in Spice

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

Full price: $18

Buy? Yes/No? Why? I’m seriously disappointed because I was getting mentally prepared for another fuck yes, until I saw the price. I just don’t think a single lipgloss, no matter how absolutely stunning it is, costs nearly $20. It’s a no for me.

TARTE COSMETICS Deluxe Amazonian Clay Blush in Feisty

Full size: I got a sample version of the full size product. I couldn’t find information on the weight of the full size version in the website.

Full price: $29

Buy? Yes/No? Why? I have to clarify something and it’s the fact that I couldn’t actually find the product that was sent to me, probably because it was Deluxe meaning limited edition, so the price information is based on the regular blushes. Would I pay nearly $29 for a blush? Hell no!

SOROCI Morning Calming Cream

Full size: I got a sample size version of the original product. I couldn’t find any information of the contents in the website.

Full price: $30

Buy? Yes/No? Why? This is a nice cream, but it’s definitely not nice enough for me to think about spending $30 on it. I’d consider buying it if it were half the price, so let me know if there’s ever a sale.

Which of these products would you get? Let me know in the comment.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila
