      - cleansing oil

      - full strength oil

A friend sent me a sample of Lancôme's crème mousse confort cleanser and I absolutely love it! 

She's also sending me a sample of the crème radiance cleanser soon so I will be able to compare. Once I have established a preference, I will definitely be getting one of them! Smiley Happy

-YSL Touche Eclat: Talk about being extremely late to the party! Smiley Tongue

-Alterna Caviar CC cream

-Devacurl Styling Cream

-Diorshow Lash Maximizer Primer

Re: Samples Made Me Buy It

I feel like there are lots of things, but I think maybe it's just that the samples make me want the full size, not that I have purchased it.


But I have purchased Boscia BB Cream (though I still love my beloved smashbox and as soon as I am no longer tan from summer I will switch back) and if it weren't so easy to get deluxe mascara samples I would buy either Lancome Doll Eyes or MUFE whatever it is I'm using a sample of right now.  However it is ridiculously easy to mascara samples and i'm not prone to paying for what I can get free.

Re: Samples Made Me Buy It

The only time I purchase mascara now is a plum waterproof for the summer, otherwise it's samples, samples, samples. Smiley Tongue

I'm on my last sample of YSL shocking and I'm seriously considering purchasing the full size, but I still have so many samples to use up. 

Re: Samples Made Me Buy It

Exactly Meg, in fact I haven't used a "Normal" sized mascara in over a year! I actually prefer sample-sized mascaras now as it is easier for me in get into the small corners of my eye with the smaller wand

Josie Maran Argan Oil and UD 24/7 eye pencil (both samples from Ipsy bags).

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer.

I recently got a little sample of a Dior fragrance that is going to find it's way onto my Christmas list Smiley Happy
