Diary of A Girly Girl




Any time I see a sampler set I get excited. It’s a great way to sample a variety of products or brands without breaking the bank.

I have purchased quite a few sets over the years but my favourite is the Sephora Favorites sets which range from fragrance to skin care to makeup. I feel that the sets are well priced & contain a good variety of products. About 2 years ago I bought the In the Glow set which contained 3 blushes, 3 bronzers & 3 luminizers for $45 USD which is $5 per product. I ended up loving some of the products & also realizing that some aren’t worth their regular price tags. Overall, it was a great purchase because I got to experiment with 9 products for about the price of 2 regular sized products. My favourites out of the set are the Lorac hilighter, the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer & the Laura Mercier Shimmer Brick.

Sephora has a few Favorites Sets out right now – one in particular that I have my eye on is Give Me Some Lip $30 CAD or $25 USD. It has 6 lip products from different brands as follows:

Give Me Some Lip

Urban Decay Mini Naked Revolution Lipstick 
Nars Deluxe Orgasm Lip Gloss 
Buxom Mini Full On Lip Cream in White Russian 
Marc Jacobs Mini Lust for Lacquer in Kissability 
Deluxe Bite High Pigment Lip Pencil in Meritage 
Smashbox Be Legendary Gloss in Pout

Note that the Smashbox Gloss is a full size product. When you break it down, that’s $5 CAD or $4.17 USD per product. I’d definitely pay that much to try some higher end products. These types of sets also make a great gift for someone, even if that someone is yourself.

What do you think about these types of mini/sample sets?
