Samples, can’t avoid them, there everywhere! You know residents of the UK complain so MUCH about how stingy their counters are with beauty samples but I feel like here in the US our counters are overly generous to the point I, dare I say it, throw samples out.
OMG! I’ve committed some sort of mortal sin. Does this mean I go the beauty hell when I die!?
As of late a new trend are deluxe size products. These aren’t really samples and they aren’t really full size but they sure are generous enough that you can get a feel for a product and sometimes get a month or more use out of it!
I personally love mascara samples but I have a beauty pet peeve when it comes to them and actually sort of a dilemma.
Have you EVER noticed that you get a mini or deluxe size sample of a mascara and it works great. You’ll use it maybe an entire month, especially if it is a deluxe size, absolutely fall in love with it, and proceed to ADORE it. Now you’re ready, you’ve decided to take the plunge, this formula is HG (holy grail), you’re going to grab the full size.
And you get the full size….
And wait, what happened
Why isn’t it working as well as the mini?
Has this every happened to you?
It’s either my imagination or my biggest beauty pet peeve.
It’s happened SO many times.
In particular it’s happened with Diorshow Mascara! OMG the mini works amazing! Totally my HG (holy grail) mascara. But…but…but..the large size? It doesn’t work as well. WTH?!
So tell am I alone?
Have you ever used a mini mascara, skincare product, or some other samples and had it work wonderfully well but upon buying the full size it just didn’t work as well?
