You might not always get a sample of a product that you like. Here are two that I not only didn't like, but were surprised by, since they are from quality cosmetic lines.
Tarte-lip surgence: Presented as a "lip gloss" product. It claims to be a "pigmented tint", that is moisturizing and non-sticky.
First of all my major complaint is that the product is heavy and sticky. There is no vanilla flavor. It tastes like petroleum jelly! Yuck. Tarte offers a lot of other fine products, but this isn't one of them.
Clarins~A luxury line of skin care products from France with a long history of fine products based on plant extracts. I have to admit that this was one of the first luxury lines I tried many years ago. Clarins makes fine skin care and body products. I love the light fragrance of the natural extracts used in their skin care. So where did they go wrong with this one?
Clarins Super Restorative total eye concentrate:
My experience with the S.R. total eye concentrate? It made my skin around my eyes dry! I could not even use the sample long enough to see if any of its claim were true; and the price tag: $83.00 for a half ounce! Get out of here! Really!
Both of these products will be hitting the trash can immediately.
