The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

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 Iโ€™ve been finding that while itโ€™s easy to initially post about receiving it and initial reviews, itโ€™s not as easy to follow up! 

 

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

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Iโ€™m like that with MAC too @Sunnysmom ๐Ÿ˜  Especially when I like a product. 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

We share a lot of similarities regarding our lippie collections I think  @2manyperfumes !

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Thanks @2manyperfumes thatโ€™s good to know. Being more pigmented is what Iโ€™d hoped for.  Iโ€™ll swatch it when I get it if you havenโ€™t seen it by then. ๐Ÿ˜ŠI have lots of other old ones in reds pinks burgundies etc if you wanna see any you donโ€™t have but bet you have same! Lol. Iโ€™m  not sure theyโ€™re repeating same colors in new formula have you heard? Anxious to see! Donโ€™t they taste so yummy too?! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜˜

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

I did check them out on this site @Sunnysmom ๐Ÿ‘โค๏ธ, I have two of their older crayons.  Yes they smell good and donโ€™t leave a bad taste either.  Some of the shades are familiar you are right. Definitely more pigmented than my old one in candied guava.  That one is frosty and sheer.

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Have you been to their lab @2manyperfumes? I had the good fortune to go and went crazy , it was so much fun. I love the formula we created there and I used mint so theyโ€™re extra fresh! Want to go back soon! 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Ummm yes I have @Sunnysmom โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ it was a surprise birthday present to me two years ago.  I was  having two custom shades made for me and I left with three, plus three multisticks, agave lip scrub, three lipliners ๐Ÿ˜ I cannot trust myself.  It was so much fun and I swatched just about every shade at the time.  

Proof lolProof lol

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

So jealous, @2manyperfumes!  That had to have been a lot of fun.

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Oh my gosh youโ€™re so cute @2manyperfumes ! Of course you have too! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜˜I love it. Wasnโ€™t it so cool?! (I didnโ€™t get any pics nor did they engrave or name mine so I was kind of bummed but it was literally one of their first days open in LA location. So I forgave em lol.) I did 2 customs and 2 regularish ones plus the fun lip scrubs etc they gave me. Mine was a bday too! Canโ€™t wait to go back! Weโ€™ll have to compare colors! ๐Ÿ’ž

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Lol well itโ€™s a great way to spend a birthday both in time and $ @Sunnysmom ๐Ÿ˜, mine was the flagship store in downtown Toronto, Canada.  

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

@2manyperfumes 

Iโ€™ve been to that location also, itโ€™s enchanting! Itโ€™s a great gift to get a lipstick enthusiast. 

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

I agree @GG84 โค๏ธ It was a lot of fun and was such a thoughtful gift from my daughter and husband to pull it off without me knowing.  

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Oh thatโ€™s amazing I bet sooo much fun lucky you! I agree with you @2manyperfumes , one of best birthdays ever for me! ๐Ÿ˜Š Donโ€™t you think they could offer us maybe a free mini on our bday or maybe 20% off the customs etc?! Would be fun!  Prob asking too much. Lol. I love the freebies they gave me of course. Happy with anything! โ˜บ๏ธ

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

That would be very nice wouldnโ€™t it @Sunnysmom ๐Ÿ˜˜, Iโ€™m very appreciative of the gifts Iโ€™ve received so far and none of them have been meh or bad.  The only thing I couldnโ€™t wear was the false eyes lashes I received because of my eye shape but my daughter put them to good use.  

Re: The Gratis Thread ๐Ÿ›๐ŸŽ‰

Definitely so @2manyperfumes ! Me too. Well thatโ€™s good your daughter likes em then! I like to gift anything I canโ€™t use too and someone always loves them so thatโ€™s always so nice! ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿฅฐ
