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! :)

Supergoop Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 37 Sunscreen

Supergoop
Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 37 Sunscreen

Now this is what I call an excellent eye cream! Anti-aging, moisturizing, and with broad spectrum SPF protection! It has a dense cream texture that spreads easily and sinks in the skin immediately. The white cream does not leave any white cast, only an invisible, dewy shield. It doesn't irritate my eyes or interfere (ball up) with my makeup as long as I apply it in a very thin layer. It has a mild scent of a typical sunscreen scent that vanishes quickly. The active ingredients include Octinoxate 7.5% and Zinc Oxide 10.1%. It also has Oat Peptide to naturally induce the production of collagen. The full-size version has a very fancy cooling applicator, too!

Dior Diorshow Mascara

First of all, love, love, LOVE the delicate rose scent! This is the best-smelling mascara I own! :D The gorgeous scent doesn't last very long, however. I also love the formula. It isn't too wet or too dry and I can keep layering it without clumping my super thin and sparse lashes. The color I have is Pro Black which is very black! It gives a very natural lash look, though; not a whole lot of volume but the lengthening effect is always noticeable. It doesn't flake during the day and is very easy to remove. The brush wand could be a bit smaller but it's not too cumbersome to maneuver. Only one complaint: it can get smudge-y when I wear it outside in warm and humid weather!

Terrybly Densiliss Primer

At $117 a pop, this is way out of my budget for a face primer (skincare is a different story) but it's still good to be able to try a sample! The primer has a rather thick but creamy white texture that glides on and smooths the skin to a perfectly soft matte finish. It doesn't accentuate dry flakes or peel off once I apply my foundation over it. My makeup seems to adhere to my skin better and thus, extending the wear time. I didn't notice any skincare benefits, though, but I probably haven't used it long enough. As for complexion-perfecting benefits, I didn't notice any pore-minimizing effect, or redness reduction, only fine line blurring. The scent is not completely to my liking but totally tolerable.
