I came across this on Sephora’s website and blinked a few times to see if I read the price right. After analyzing it for a good 10 minutes, I added it to my cart. If you can, I would add it to your cart right away! Let me show you what you get! Oh also, Sephora has free shipping.
You get a 15% off voucher to use on a full size purchase for any of the six samples and also these products:

- Youth To The People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser
- LANEIGE Water Bank Moisture Cream
- Living Proof Restore Repair Hair Mask
- Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb
I loved the selection and variety of the samples. They are all something I can use daily. Here are my thoughts on the products after using them.
The NARS lipstick looks red but is actually a soft mauve shade. On light skin tones, it is a nude lipstick and on dark skin tones, it is not that visible. I think I will use it when I need a natural lip color. It is matte and pigmented, very comfortable to wear. It does transfer and fade by the end of the day though.
The Nudestick is meant for your lips, cheeks, and eyes. It is a very natural shade for skin of color like myself and as a lip product it wasn’t visible. I liked it best as a cream blush because it blends easily and I love the pigmentation. It does last for a good amount of time though. The shade is more red toned compared to the Milk Makeup cream blush in “werk” that I have which you can see in the summer makeup post here. 10/10 loved this sample.
The Youth to the People cleanser. I had high hopes for this one as I heard so many great reviews. But honestly, it’s just a cleanser…very basic. It’s very similar to the Ceptaphil gentle cleanser which is under $10. Still I will use it because it is gentle and works! 10/10 for effectiveness.
Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream. I haven’t heard about this product much before unlike their other products. It is hydrating and dries quick leaving a nice finish. But, again honestly, just another moisturizer. I think I will stick to my other moisturizers. I would buy the Fresh rose moisturizer because it feels more luxurious compared to this Laneige one. The full size costs $36.00 USD. 5/10 for overall quality.
The Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb is a fragrance sample and it is quite strong but not unbearable. I am not a fan of perfumes in general so this was my least favorite sample. It is a floral scent as the Flowerbomb name suggests. 5/10 for the scent.
Living Proof Restore Repair Hair Mask. I was excited to try this because I always appreciate a mask for my thick and frizzy wavy hair. The texture is creamy and felt like it would do the job well. But for my hair type (2A/2B) it was not nourishing enough. This mask is would be suitable for thiner hair. When I use conditioner, it feels silky smooth. When I used this mask, I didn’t feel my hair soften. 3/10 as I didn’t notice a difference. Thank goodness for samples!
Overall, I recommend this if you would like to try out high end/expensive skincare and makeup products for a fair price! I believe they have a new one each month so I would stay on the lookout for the next one if you didn’t like the products this month. Let me know if you have tried any of these products or recommend anything you would like me to review!
Thank you for reading and until next time don’t forget to stay Chic Neat and Sweet!
