ABOUT MAKEUP MINI SERIES
Makeup Minis is where I feature deluxe samples I received with my online and/or in-store purchases. I'll give you a short description of the product, my initial impression and whether I plan to purchase a full-sized version. I am only listing 3 items per volume to keep the post short and fun! :)

 

NARS Lip Gloss in Priscilla

NARS
Lip Gloss in Priscilla

I love the new NARS lip gloss formula! It's non-sticky, long-wearing, and spreads very easily. This Priscilla shade is a shocking pink that really pops and brightens up the face nicely!I have a review of Orgasm here.

Code: LIPMINI
Full-sized purchase? Definitely!

US$26 | Sephora

Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray

Urban Decay
B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray

I spray this mist all over my face before I put on my makeup to refresh my skin. It offers a cooling effect upon contact (due to alcohol content). I didn't really notice the reduction in oil production, though.

Code: VIBURBAN
Full-sized purchase? Undecided.

US$33 | Sephora

Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer

Jack Black
Industrial Strength Hand Healer

This is the only hand cream I am using right now. The texture is rich but absorbs really quickly. It keeps my hands so soft and hydrated for hours. I love its fresh eucalyptus smell so much — very refreshing and clean!

Code: YOURGIFT
Full-sized purchase? Already have!

  • I like Jack Black! I tried the UD spray and I didn’t like it. All the ingredients on the back do the exact opposite of what the front label says (although the alcohol part is supposed to dry the oil, sure, but being 2nd in the list, it doesn’t moisturize or whatever UD claimed the bottle is supposed to do). Just a handful of irritants in a little spray bottle. None for me! http://www.paulaschoice.com/beautypedia-skin-care-reviews/by-brand/urban-decay/_/B6-Vitamin-Infused-Complexion-Prep-Spray

      That’s what I heard also about the alcohol being the second ingredient on the list! But it’s refreshing, though! Haha. It doesn’t really do anything much for me but then again I don’t use it every day, so I can’t say if it would improve the texture of my skin over time or not.

  • Erin says:

    Priscilla is on my swatch list!

  • Rachelle says:

    This series is sooo adorable!!! :-) I’m not a huge fan of lipglosses but I’m really interested in trying the Priscilla lipgloss from Nars.

  • Priscilla is such a pretty hot pink. I love the mini sized makeup too Jaa

  • Kira says:

    I love the idea of a mini series, Jaa!
    Must try the hand cream – I abhor sticky ones. I feel like I can’t do anything with my hands!

  • Sylirael says:

    Ooh, love this series idea! :-D I wish we got minis/samples with our purchases here, would be so awesome (and help one feel better about the NZ prices, LOL!). I shall live vicariously through you!

    I have the Vitamin B prep spray thing as a deluxe sample form a UD order too, but I haven’t tried it yet! I’ve been kind of dubious about spraying my face with alcohol, because my skin is already dry, but mostly it’s due to laziness in trying ‘complexion’ things, because I don’t wear face makeup every day! :-P #bloggerfail

    • Jaa says:

      Minis are the best. I wish all makeup companies would make the mini version of every product they sell! LOL. I don’t use a makeup setting spray on a regular basis, either, only when I know I will be out for long hours!

  • Grace says:

    I like this new series Jaa. I have quite few of gifts with purchase. Some of them are so impressive I went and bought the full size and some are just ok and I am glad I didn’t waste my money. It will be so good to read what you will/will not repurchase from the mini sizes:)

    By the way the Nars lip gloss looks so cute x

    • Jaa says:

      True! Just like the Jack Black hand cream, I loved it so much I had to buy the full size! I’ll definitely keep this series running for sure! It’s my excuse to take more product photos haha! ^_^

  • Cel says:

    Ooh! Love this new segment/series.

  • Carolyn says:

    Love the idea of this new series, Jaa! Also loving NARS lipgloss here — in fact, I loved it so much that I purchased a full-size gloss this weekend!

  • Omg Priscilla is sooo pretty ! It’s a irresistible pink !

  • Krithi says:

    Nars lipgloss looks interesting

  • I only have two make-up minis, now that I think about it! Two lip glosses from Glominerals. I like the idea of make-up minis though. I never use up my make-up anyway.

    • Jaa says:

      Hey Melissa! It is the best feeling in the world to empty a makeup product! OK, maybe not the best, but close. Haha. I have never used anything from Glominerals, must look it up!

  • Liz says:

    Cute! Great post idea. :) I have a love/hate with minis. Love receiving them but tend to forget about them and give them away later on. I do wish every brand would sell travel sizes of their products because some things just never get finished.

  • Alessandra says:

    Hi Jaa! May I just say that I LOVE your blog! The pictures are out of this world and I love how in depth the reviews are.
    I know this is an old review, but did you see any results with the Urban Decay spray? I got mine free from a friend and have been using it for about a month. I haven’t really seen any improvements, but I love the way it feels!

    • Jaa says:

      Hi Alessandra! Thank you so much! You’re too kind! :)

      I don’t remember seeing any improvements, either. It just feels nice and refreshing when you put it on and that’s about it. LOL. It comes in handy, though, like when you want to damp your brush for example. :)
