Apparently, Violet Voss is coming to Sephora and I am a little bummed about it. I guess this does make the brand more accessible but in all honesty, they have such hard time keeping items in stock on their own site – how are they going to stock another retailer? Also, Sephora kinda’ sucks – I would much rather keep purchasing products directly from Violet Voss and I will but this partnership doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.
Even though Sephora really does mostly suck, they have some amazing gift sets. I have already said that gift sets are either a great introduction to the a brand or a complete waste, I am hoping that these will be the former!
I recently got to try a couple of items from Amore Pacific and they were amazing, they are also ridiculously expensive. I have been using The Essential Creme Fluid as my daytime moisturizer and I love it, this set includes a full-size of their fluid and deluxe samples of their Treatment Enzyme Peel and Moisture Bound face mist. The Green Tea Me Gorgeous trio retails at $108 which is a steal given the fact that the fluid itself retails for $98.
They also released a comprehensive collection of samples in their Essentials Collection, this set includes 6 products and retails for $65, my only concern is that the sample sizes will be itty-bitty at this price point and might not be as good of a sampling of the brand.
…and if you have not guessed by now, I am complete skincare junkie 😀 Next, is this Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trio from Herbivore. You get to sample their 3 signature rose products for $39.
Farmacy has a very lovely Honey Harvest Kit that includes a full-sized face cream and two additional samples for $45.
This next set are already products that I have used and enjoyed, the Bite Beauty Agave Kisses Set includes their agave lip scrub, mask and balm for $20.
For some actual makeup, I want this little holiday duo from Dior – you get a full-size mascara and an eye-shadow compact for $29.50 which is basically like getting the shadows for free!
Just like 10 kits and 100’s of minis, I think that is reasonable 😉 What are your thoughts on the sample kits, worth it or no?
Thanks for stopping by <3
