How ’bout Them Samples?! Review #3.0

You may remember that as part of my “strict no buy” I had decided to try to use up a bunch of the neglected samples that I have already received from various places and sample boxes.  I have so many samples that I don’t even remember where I got all of them from originally.  I know some are from ipsy bags, or Target boxes and others from Walmart beauty boxes, this time around one is even from Influenster*.

I posted a few weeks ago that I would let you know what I think of each thing and if I would purchase these items based on my thoughts from these samples.  Some products were awesome and I used them up right away, others have taken me longer to use.  This post was getting very long, so I am going to break it into two parts.  (Come back tomorrow to read the second half.)

Here’s my review of the first half of the samples from the third group of what I have been trying out…

Beauty For Real Eyeliner
CeraVe Eye Repair Cream
Jelly Pong Pong Neapolitan Palette
Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream

I just got this in my ipsy bag in August, but I have gotten so many black liners from ipsy recently that I thought it was time to start using some of them.  I really like this liner.  It is super black and glides on smoothly and easily.  It dries down quickly and doesn’t smudge.  Most days I wear my makeup for around 10-12 hours.  This liner is still exactly where I put it at the end of the day.  I would buy this Beauty For Real Eyeliner based on the sample.

When I got these in my ipsy bag I wasn’t overly impressed.  Once I actually used them I realized that I was wrong.  These shadows are so super pigmented!  Only on swipe across my lid and I have beautiful pigmented.  I would buy this Neapolitan Palette based on the sample.

Look at how beautiful those jelly pong pong eyeshadow swatches are!  That is only one swipe of my finger. Awesome! I love how black the Beauty For Real Eyeliner is.

I am a big fan ofCeraVe Moisturizing Cream.  I have used several CeraVe products and have usually been impressed with them.  This eye repair cream is no exception.  While I don’t have too many eye wrinkles yet I am a huge believer in prevention.  This sample is super small, only .08oz, but since the cream is thick and the eye area is so small only a tiny bit of cream is needed. I would buy this CeraVe Eye Repair Cream based on the sample.

This cream is awesome!  I love the way my skin feels after I use it!  I love the scent of it. It is clean and beautiful.  I wish I had a perfume that smelled like this cream does.  My skin feels super moisturized the morning after I apply this cream A 1.6 ounce jar of this cream costs around $32.  Based on the sample I would buy this Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream.

Overall this was a great group of samples!  I have been enjoying using up my samples and have already started on a new bunch.  Tomorrow will be the second half of the samples.

What about you?  Have you tried any of these products?  What did you think?
