Maybelline|SuperStay Matte Ink | Believer

Hi hi hi!

Today’s review is on a product that, I have to be honest, haven’t really tested out. I tried it once and let’s just say I wasn’t the biggest fan. I actually recorded a first impression video on it, which you can check out on my channel (just click here).IMG_2162 Continue reading “Maybelline|SuperStay Matte Ink | Believer”

benefit | GALifornia

Hi hi hi!

Welcome back to another review! I hope your week has been treating you well; if it’s like mine and has been crazy busy, I have some good news. It’s Wednesday, so that means the weekend is almost here – hang in there!

Anyhow today’s review will be on my very first benefit boxed blush. You would think that with all the makeup products and brands I try, I would have a bunch of these in my collection, but sadly I don’t. However, when I saw this pop-up on my Instagram feed, I knew that this would be the one I would pick up. Interested in my thoughts? Keep reading! Continue reading “benefit | GALifornia”

Merry #Blogmas Day 7 | kate spade new york – Cameron Street Agenda

Hi hi hi!

I think I am finally caught up with blogmas! Anyhow, since I seem to be in a planner mood/phase I decided to write my review of my beloved kate spade new york agenda. I was lucky enough to find this gem at my local outlet (best part about living in Las Vegas) and I was also lucky enough to get a great deal on it as well. Interested in investing in this precious gem? Keep reading! photo 1FC90240-B33A-469B-8CBB-4985B3C970A0.jpg Continue reading “Merry #Blogmas Day 7 | kate spade new york – Cameron Street Agenda”

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,
