Pint-Size Reviews

Hi hi hi!

I wanted to post this before I actually started posting reviews based off of samples/deluxe samples that I receive with some of my orders. I am sure that there will be some unhappy folks out there who question why I would even bother with posting reviews when I’ve only tried the sample of it, so before that happens, I thought it would be best to provide a warning. Also, these reviews that will be based off a sample will be for department store brands only – there will be no drug store brands (I don’t even think they hand out samples).

When I opt to get a sample with my purchase, I do it because I’m genuinely interested in the product, but I don’t want to spend the money, time, and effort to go out and actually get it. Sure, I could read countless reviews, watch a bunch of YouTube videos, and even go down and swatch the product, but that doesn’t provide me any information about how it performs in the long run. Why would I want to purchase a full size of a product I end up not liking (after watching rave reviews on YouTube) and then have to take the time and effort to either go back to the store and return or to ship it back to wherever it came from?

I solely believe that a company should put the same effort and quality in a sample product as they do a full size product – I mean, isn’t the whole point to get people interested in purchasing the full  size? If a sample is going to perform like complete poop why should I bother with investing in it?

I have a bunch of little deluxe sample sizes of products that I received from orders, sets, etc. and I do think that they each deserve a review and I want to take the time and review them. Maybe one day when I’m bringing in the “dolla dolla bills yall” I will go out and pick up full size versions and compare them, but until then if you see a  review based off of a deluxe sample and you actually own the full size version, please let me know if you experience the same things with your product(s)! I would love to hear from all of you.

xoxo,

Ride or die tag - face edition

I saw this tag floating around YouTube and I thought it would be a fun idea to show you guys my holy grail, OG, ride or die products.

For now here are my drugstore picks for the face. Continue reading “Drugstore | Ride or Die Tag – Face Edition”

Buying Followers

Hi Hi Hi!

First off, I apologize if you follow both of my blogs and see this. However, this is something that I had been wanting to talk about for a couple of months now. With the job that I currently have, I get to see the behind the scenes (kind of) on how companies pick bloggers/social media personalities to sponsor and host. Here’s what I have learned.

[CAREER] Blogging | Biggest Step Yet

[MY DIARY] Down The Rabbit Hole

Hi hi hi!

Welp one week of 2016 is done and I hope that you had a great week. Today I wanted to be 100% real and honest with you guys. Most of you know that lately I’ve been struggling with a lot of internal problems. I want to go a little more in depth with them in hopes that maybe it’ll help you or for you to know you are not alone.

In today’s world/society it’s so easy to feel alone even when we really aren’t. However, that doesn’t mean we are always honest with those we talk to.  Continue reading “[MY DIARY] Down The Rabbit Hole”

We’re either extremely high up or we’re so low we feel like we’re hitting the crust of the Earth. However today my thoughts changed. Continue reading “[BLOGMAS] Day 8 – It’s Not So Bad”
