Beauty ‘n Fashion: Trying out some samples (La Mer and Clinique)


I have tested a few samples lately and of course I want to share with you my first impressions. This time I will tell you a bit more about a La Mer foundation and a Clinique eye cream.

Sample: Clinique – All about eyes


First impression? This is a fresh and gel-like treatment for the eyes. I loved using this sample. It tightened the skin around my eyes and didn’t dry out the vulnerable skin aroud the eyes at all. It didn’t feel greasy and the product was absorbed instantly by my skin.

I couldn’t try it out long enough to make up my mind about the puff-reducing… but I bet that the puffiness I am dealing with is just too damn puffy for any kind of product!

To buy or not to buy? At about 35 EUR for 15 ml it is a bit more expensive than what I would normally buy, but I really liked using this sample, so I might just try it out!

Sample: La Mer – The soft fluid longwear foundation


First impression? I loved this foundation! I needed just a tiny bit of product to give my complexion and even and velvety finish. The foundation claims to be longwear and it really is. The foundations was still flawless after 10 hours. It gave good coverage, but still looked natural. The fact that it has an SPF 20 in it, is a bonus!

To buy or not to buy? Even though I loved using this foundation, I never could pay that much money (96 EUR for a bottle) for a foundation… so won’t buy it I’m afraid 😦

Have you ever tried one of these products? Do you like using samples? Tell me in the comments!

Love, Kathleen

  1. I bought that eye cream and I felt it was OK, definitely worked for hydration. I don’t have puffiness so I can’t speak for that. I have dark circles but eye creams can’t actually lessen that (that’s just bad marketing). Overall, I’ve tried better eye creams and I never went back to it.

    1. Thanks for letting me now! I liked using the sample, but I am currently using the Estée Lauder advanced night repair for the eyes and I’m quite happy with that! A bit expensive though 😦
