Dolce & Gabbana Desire Perfume (Sample)
I'll start with this: I own this in its full size. And I will buy it again once it runs out. It just so happens that it was one of the 100 point perks at Sephora, so I chucked it in my bag for travel. I'm a big fan of Dolce & Gabbana perfumes (check out my review of Light Blue here), and this one's no exception. I like this because it's a "fancy" scent that isn't overpowering at all.
Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
I wanted to try this because I kept hearing it was similar to Benefit's PoreFessional. I had a few samples of Benefit's primer and thought it was okay, but I was not down for the $31 price tag. When I tried the Baby Skin, I was totally shocked to find that it was pretty much just another silicone primer. There's nothing wrong with it, it just didn't do anything more extravagant than any other product of its kind would. I'll repurchase because it's cheap, easy to find, and does its job.
Makeup Forever Concealer
I compare this to the LA Girl Proconcealer, just much pricier. This was one of the first concealer I ever used, and probably the second best. It has really good coverage and the shade match it damn good. I'll repurchase eventually, whenever I run out of the LA Girl one.
Soap And Glory Hand Food (Rose Original and Sugar Crush)
I got these in a gift set of five a few months ago. I love this lotion to keep in my bag for on the go. It feels good, isn't greasy, and smells delicious. I like the way Sugar Crush smells more, though.
Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation in Coconut
The formula of this foundation was quite new to me. It was kind of liquidy coming out of the bottle. But pretty matte (and almost drying) when I blended it into the skin. I like the dropper-style applicator, and the fact that it barely made me oily throughout the day. Would repurchase.
Maybelline The Colossal Volume Mascara in Blackest Black
If you haven't noticed it yet, I love Maybelline. This is yet another product I will continue to buy. Maybelline's mascaras win at life, IMHO. I've bought this over and over again, and am using a new tube of the stuff right now. Volume and curl like no other, seriously.
