The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

A place to say thank you, provide reviews and first impressions, or follow up on gratis received after more use!

 

Many of us have been very lucky to receive gratis (thanks Sephora!), and I’ve been finding that while it’s easy to initially post about receiving it and initial reviews, it’s not as easy to follow up! 

 

I thought maybe we could have a dedicated thread to follow-ups and reviews with products we’ve received after we’ve been using them for a while, especially because it’s sometimes hard to find the original thank you and first impressions threads.

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Awwwww thanks! @itsfi πŸ˜Š

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Wow @itsfi, fabulous photo and even better that it's a perfect match for you. Guess this answers my question about which item you've been loving! 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Thank you @eshoe. πŸ˜ƒ The mask was for a masquerade themed gala I attended years ago and I will use the combo of the mask and Gucci lippie for a masquerade casino night a friend is hosting for a fundraiser. 

I’ve been loving all the lip products πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’. The Amika clarifying shampoo arrived at the perfect time - I needed to pick one up soon but hadn’t decide what to pick up.

@itsfi ,

Congratulations on finding Your Shade!  Smiley Happy

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Thank you @tsavorite! πŸ€— The reds-that-turned-fuschia all went into a box with other lippie shades that didn’t work for me and every once in a while I’d mix colors to see if I could get a combination to work for me. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@itsfi  You have most definitely piqued my interest, as I have a huge problem with reds turning fuschia. Let me know please if you decide to try one of the other formulations because I’m not sure which one I should order. And I wonder whether the color would vary greatly across formulations. Such a beautiful shade πŸ’–

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@PrettyPaint, you too?! I’m sorry you also experience reds turning fuschia. πŸ˜” Good call on the change in formulation possibly varying the color. Hmmmm... I’m going to think about this more. Of the two other formulations, sheer and matte, which one would you be more interested in? I don’t think Sephora has them in store at them moment but if I’m feeling bold, I may brave the crowds next week to see if one of the department stores downtown does.

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@itsfi  Wow, you are super brave. I'm not a big crowds person. Smiley Happy

 

That's a good question. I'm not sure which formula I'm most interested in to be honest. I was thinking matte, as long as it's not too dry of a matte. Does the satin version require a lip liner and have you noticed any migration with it? That's the main reason I was thinking that the matte may be nice (I sometimes struggle with red shades not staying within the lip line as much as I would like). The satin formula sounds really comfortable, though.

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@itsfi I love this pic! it's so glam!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Aww, thank you @averylayne. You’re so sweet! πŸ˜ƒ 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@itsfi, I'm glad I you love it on you!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

I would never have tried this gorgeous lippie β™₯️ if it were not for the gratis box @curlychiquita!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

I’m so glad you found the perfect red @itsfi! I love it too. It is perfect for the holidays!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

It’s so pretty @faeriegirl! β™₯️ And yesss!!! Perfect for the holidays. 😍

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@itsfi Glad you found a red that suits you 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Me too @SportyGirly125! πŸ€— I’m considering picking up the same shade in the different finishes as well - both are in my cart; I’m going back and forth on the matte version. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Want to give a big thank you to @olehenriksen  and @Sephora for a nice little gratis sent my way. I love Ole Henriksen and I use the OLEHENRIKSEN - The Clean Truthβ„’ Foaming Cleanser as my regular face wash (along with other items from their truth line in my am routine) already so when I received this new product to try, I was excited.

Initial thoughts: Used it a few times and love it already.  I've used the regular foam face cleanser and their gel cleanser and I think this one fits right in between. It lathers nicely and doesn't leave my face feeling stripped or dry. I haven't tried it at night after taking off my make up (I don't wear much just some cc cream and mascara) but will be trying it at night to see how clean my face feels afterwards. 

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Awesome!!! Congrats @GalPalVal17!!!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Congrats, @GalPalVal17! OH makes some great products and I've been so curious to hear more about this cleanser. Glad to hear that it's working well for you so far!

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

@quspork  I agree. They make such great products and they are actually my go to. I've been enjoying this face wash.

Re: The Gratis Thread πŸ›πŸŽ‰

Congratulations @GalPalVal17, love Truth Serum, 'bright, addictive scent' is right. Enjoy your gratis!
