sampling samples #6
pantene pro-v repair and protect shampoo
i've only used this a couple of times so i can't make many claims about it. it leaves my hair feeling clean and not heavy. i haven't seen any massive differences in my hair, but likewise it hasn't had any adverse effects.
une skin-glow foundation
i can only describe this product as okay. it's a light/medium coverage foundation with a dewey finish and a bit of a funny smell. i didn't mind wearing it but i wouldn't go and pick it up any time soon.
these fragrances remind me of my childhood. it smells sweet and floral, yet adult at the same time. i was surprised to find this is a fragrance that i'm actually looking to repurchase. it's cheap as chips and the full size bottle is the perfect size to pop in my handbag.
i'm less keen on this fragrance than the other. it's not really floral but definitely not musky. i just can't pick up the notes in at all. its pleasant but not a fragrance i would typically pick. definitely more suited for the evenings i think.
l'oreal nude magique
when i first saw this i didn't get it. how could it be nude and still give me coverage? but this may be my favourite skin product i have used for a long time! obviously i have only used one sample but i am going straight out, right this very second to go and purchase it. even my favourite foundations don't make my skin look this nice alone. it is light and feels almost like second skin. i would say the product is a strong medium coverage and it's something i would be happy to wear with nothing else on my face. (and i don't say that about many products!)
l'oreal lumi magique
i'm impressed l'oreal! i think sometimes i forget how much i love it as a brand. this foundation is definitely a heavy to medium coverage but it doesn't feel that way on the skin. it made my skin look completely flawless and i am so tempted to go out and buy this! i'm just not sure i can justify picking up both this and the nude maqique!
when i saw this in my glossy box i was instantly drawn to it. the shade serengetti is a dark peachy pink with a subtle shimmer running through it. it applies fairly sheer, with a very slight colour pay off. the formula is a lot more sticky than i would hope for, but it looks amazing over a nude lipstick. would i pay £10 for a full size however? i doubt it.
