Minis and Samples Save the Day!

There are a zillion products out there I want to try. This wouldn't be a problem if 1) money grew on trees and 2) I used up everything I bought, because I really do hate letting stuff go to waste.

Unfortunately, I have ADD when it comes to prods. Unless it really wows, I won't have the attention span to finish a full-sized container of stuff. There are times when I obsess about products day in and day out- until I get them, then I forget about them completely.

My solution: think small. I like to get mini versions and samples of stuff I want to try just to get them out of my system. Or get the full-sized version next time.
I recommend this approach for choosing bb creams as well. I still haven't given up on these, but there are so many to choose from. They all sound so promising but like with other types of products, I know that only a handful would suit me.

Here's the latest batch of goodies I got:
 
MINIS:
 L-R:
Baviphat AC Therapy Sleeping Pack
Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream
TonyMoly Tony Tint


SAMPLES (by brand): 

Lioele

2 pcs. 3D Skin Fix Foundation
Secret Pore Rich Balm
Dollish Veil Vita BB
2pcs 3D Skin Fix Makeup Base
Beyond the Solution BB Cream
Triple the Solution BB Cream

Hanskin

Super Secret BB
Gold Caviar BB
Mineral Magic BB
Control Skin BB

Missha


Choboyang BB Cream
Wrinkle Filler
Signature BB Cream

Skin79
Hot Pink Super BB Cream 

Baviphat Mango Steam Scrub

The seller included this in my package as a freebie, which is great because it looks really interesting. So happy!

I know some people don't like the idea of having to buy samples when they should be free. I'm actually glad that some people have made these available without having to make HUGE purchases first. I'm really excited to try these one by one and give my feedback, Stay tuned!


P.S. 


King of 25,000 Megawatt Smile asked me to post a pic of NYX Pink Lyric on my lips. LOL, Sorry this was all I could come up with on short notice. (I used my netbook webcam) I'll try again when I'm fully made up.

  14. That's a smart idea.

    I hate it when I compulsively buy something and only end up using it like once or twice.
    Total waste of money, but this is a good way to solve that problem.
