Inside my Makeup Bag. September 2012

Here is a quick update about the content of the makeup bag that I carry with me. I am actually surprised that there are hardly any products and almost all are sample sized. I guess the only explanation is that it’s  only Monday and I’ve ‘cleared out’ all the other products on the weekend.

I have two perfume samples: Illamasqua’s Freak which I adore and Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire which I am not yet sure about.

I mini size of one of my favourite lip products which is Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in o1.

A very small size of Benefit’s High Beam, I actually have three different sizes which is very handy.

A sample of Chanel’s Sublime de Chanel mascara.

ArtDeco and Dita von Teese’s  Eye Styler which I think is fantastic. I actually can’t believe how good it is. Will write a review  soon.

Jouer Concealer no3 cameo. I usually have a Touche Eclat or Rouge Bunny Rouge one with me but this time decided to take this one.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 09 Soft Murano. This is such a high quality blush for a very affordable price. I recommend.

The makeup bag is from Elemis and I really like it!

Lets Talk About Samples

Today I would like to talk with you about samples…

Do you like them? Do you think it’s a good strategy to give us samples? What kind of samples do you like the best? What size do you think they should be? Have you ever  bought anything if you liked the sample? If you do, what was the last thing you’ve bought?

Some samples I’ve found inside my makeup bag

Here are just some of my thoughts and I’d really love to hear yours!

As for myself I really love samples! In fact I think it’s a great way of trying new products and I think that every brand should put at least one sample with an order; it is also nice when you can choose.

I like the samples of primers , foundations and perfumes the best and I think that you should be able to use it at least 3 times to make sure if you like/dislike the product.

And, yes, I’ve bought  products because of a  good sample several times and the last thing was YSL perfumes.
