*Last* Sample vs. Full Size

*Last* Sample vs. Full Size

Hello and happy Sunday. Today I’m happy to announce that this will be our last Sample vs. Full Size post because from now on I will integrate this to the usual Ipsy Glam Bag unboxing/ review. I’m also happy to announce that yes, I recently re-subscribed to Ipsy, so at least for the next year we’ll have goodies coming every month. Let’s get started, shall we?

H2O+ BEAUTY Oasis Hydrating Treatment

Full size: I got the sample size version, which has 0.34 oz. The full size version contains 1.7 oz.

Full price: $38

Buy? Yes/No? Why? I don’t think this was that great to begin with. I mean, I could feel the immediate hydrating effect, but I didn’t see anything lasting. I don’t buy mediocre products, especially not when they cost nearly $40. I think there are better products out there for a quarter of the price.

TRIFLE COSMETICS Sugar Bunny Lip Scrub  

Full size: I got the full size version, which contains 10 mL or 0.34 fl. oz.

Full price: $17.95

Buy? Yes/No? Why? If you’ve been around for a while, then you know there are some products that I consider “non-essential,” meaning that I don’t use them everyday; they’re not a part of my usual routine. Highlighter is a non-essential, just like lip scrub. I exfoliate my lips every once in a while, and I currently own two lip scrubs I got in Ipsy glam bags, so I don’t feel the need to buy these myself. I also don’t feel the need to spend $17.95 on something I could easily make at home, if I wanted to.

THE VINTAGE COSMETIC COMPANY Slanted Tweezers in Rose Gold

Full size: I got the actual tweezers in my Ipsy glam bag.

Full price: $10.50

Buy? Yes/No? Why? When it comes to beauty tools, I usually have just one, and when that seems to have served its time, I buy another one. I don’t have different versions of the same makeup brush, and I’m not one to have different pairs of tweezers when I only need one. I already have my tweezers, so I don’t really use these new ones. I’m keeping them for when the others don’t work. As always with items I wouldn’t purchase myself, I’m glad these were sent to me because I wouldn’t have spent $10.50 on something you find at the drugstore for $2.

PAULA DORF COSMETICS Bronzer in Bora Bora 

Full size: I got the sample size version that weighs 2.1 g. The full size weighs 10 g.

Full price: $32

Buy? Yes/No? Why? I didn’t really like this product to begin with because it made my face look ashy, and who wants that? That itself is obviously reason enough for me not to buy it. If it were good, I wouldn’t think about buying it either because I think it’s way too overpriced for a brand that up until a few months ago was unknown to me.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm 

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

Full price: $6.50

Buy? Yes/No? Why? I obviously wouldn’t buy this same shade because I already own it, but I’ve bought several lip creams from this brand. You know I love NYX products because they are the perfect balance between quality and price. This is a yes, yes, yes for me.

Now, as always, in the comments let me know which product you would buy and why.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila
