Makeup Minis Vol.10

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! :)


Marc Jacobs O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara

Marc Jacobs
O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara

I knew this mascara was going to be an instant love and it was! I’m glad to report that O!Mega does volumize and lengthen my lashes. The formula is long-lasting and does not smudge (yay!). The bristles are dense and apply the intense black formula without clumps. However, it seems to flatten the curl just a tiny bit but I can certainly live with!

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lip Color in Beso

Stay All Day Liquid Lip Color in Beso

Beso has to be the brightest red lip color I’ve ever seen! And the kind that will brighten up any complexion. Stay All Day is a fitting name, too, because it doesn’t budge once it sets! Beso applies smoothly and evenly but you have to have a very precise hand since it stains right away. The formula feels weightless and leaves a soft velvety-matte finish.

Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme

Estée Lauder
Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme

Another great moisturizer I discovered a couple of weeks ago! I cannot tell about its effectiveness in reducing fine lines yet but what I can share with you now is that I love its lightweight and soothing texture! It is very hydrating and absorbs instantly, too! I am not too crazy about its overpowering scent but luckily it dissipates within a few minutes after application.

    I have no idea how or why but I have a sudden interest in all things MJ beauty. I think I adore their concealer that much I want to discover more about the brand. I’m all about the curl though so I’m slightly disappointed to read that it doesn’t hold it very well. The lip stain from Stila sounds perfect for a night out! And a velvet matte? I’m sold. Have I already mentioned how genius your ‘makeupminis’ are? At least I’ve done it now ;)

      Same here, Alice! When the brand first launched, I wasn’t interested in anything. Then one day I bought their liquid liner and it all changed since! Now I have their pencil eyeliners, bronzer, brushes (all of them!), concealer, mascara, and lip balm. LOL. Next on my list is their eyeshadow palette! And maybe a blush, too! :)

    So many interesting things this time! (not that there aren’t usually, but there’s something about all three of these that piqued my interest, LOL!). Obviously, mascara is kind of at the forefront of my mind these days, so there’s that :-P But then I’m also having a bit of a bright red lipstick moment, so Beso looks awesome…and then I *wish* I could find the ultimate soothing, moisturising cream (that isn’t EL, sadly – sometimes I wonder if it’s the fragracne that irritates my skin?) – so I’m envious of your find there! ^_^.

    You and your minis! :-D I love this section…

    Good to hear about the MJ mascara! I think this is the first review of it that I’ve read, mini though it is. :) I’ve been eyeing some of those Stila shades forever and just waiting for the right occasion for a treat. Have heard nothing but good things!

    1. says: Jaa

      They are SO pigmented, Liz!! Like cray cray! I think you’ll really love them! Wait till they are on sale at Ulta. I scored another color when it was only $5. Full size, too! ;D Great deal of the century. Almost. LOL.
