Makeup Minis Vol.15

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! :)

 

Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil

Fresh
Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil

Can't say that I love the distinct herbal scent but at least it doesn't linger. The formula is great and rivals my favorite Tarte Maracuja Oil (review). I mix two drops of this hydrating oil with my nighttime moisturizer and my skin drinks it up instantly. It doesn't leave any oily/greasy feeling at all. I wake up with soft and supple skin every A.M. No more winter dry skin!

Dior 578 Diorkiss Addict Lipstick

Dior
Addict Lipstick

I have the 578 Diorkiss shade which is a sheer medium coral pink. It basically applies like a sheer tinted lip balm on my pigmented lips. This is a lipstick I grab when I need to leave the house to run a quick errand since it's foolproof to apply. The soft shine and hydrating feel only last a good few hours, though. I generally prefer the Addict Extreme formula better (review).

Full-sized purchase?
Possibly

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

Stila
Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

I lost count of the times I have repurchased the full size! Even with so many black liquid liners out there, this one still remains one of my favorites of all time. Intense black, stays put, doesn't smudge or transfer even in hot and humid or cold and windy weather! The tip is sharp and precise but my only grip is that towards the end it frays and becomes too soft.

Full-sized purchase?
Yes!

    I love the Seaberry oil. I prefer to use it on wet skin or in the summer. It’s also my favorite oil for day time. I think it smells like indian food. The best indian food, ever.

    I’d love to try that Fresh oil, and I’ve heard great things about the Stila liner! I’m with you on Dior Addict though. It’s great, but I tend to prefer Addict Extreme!

    I bought the mini of the Fresh oil some time ago and just tried it a few times. It’s okay but doesn’t wow me, but I want to try again when it gets super cold here.

    As for the Stila, I also had that one and liked it except that it bled into the skin too much for my liking. Ended up giving that away to a friend!

    Hi Jaa, how is the stila eyeliner compared to Tom Ford liquid eyeliner? I heard great things about both but TF always cost an arm and a leg so I want to make sure it’s Jaa approved before purchase:)

      I don’t have the Tom Ford one yet (am planning to pick it up soon, though!). I will definitely let you know once I try it! :)
