Sample Challenge TAG!

September 10, 2012

As soon as I saw this tag in my subscription box from makeupTIA, I knew it would be perfect for me. The premise of this tag is to use samples you have collected and only samples. This tag is perfect for those of us who have or had subscriptions to beauty boxes. The only problem I came across for this tag was eye shadow. I have not really received any samples.  The blush and bronzer were also a bit iffy. I have yet to receive a blush/bronzer in sample form, only full size (not that I mind!).

Here's what I used and where I got them from:
From Left to Right:
MAC Pigment in Naked - Gift Set 2 Christmas' ago
Sephora Mascara Lash Plumping  - Sephora Eye Combination Set
The eyeshadow, blush & bronzer may be cheating slightly because they are mini and probably not considered samples. I found this tag super fun and I definitely encourage anyone subscribed to monthly boxes to do this too! To see how I applied everything (VERY CLOSE UP, sorry about that!) you can check out the video at the end of this post!
Here's the finished product:
The Stila Sheer Color was a bit too dark. It did not cover everything but I am quite pleased with the coverage provided.
This is a very subtle look that I would wear daily. My only criticism would be toward the Blinc Mascara. I am not a fan of the brush and the formulation. It does not seperate very well or hold a curl. The lashes also feel quite hard once they dry which I am not particularly a fan of.
I TAG you! Do you have a lot of samples just lying around?
