Beauty Product Minis Vol.1 // Review

*This is NOT a sponsored post*

Lately, I am into a new habit; buying the mini versions, available at Sephora (in-store and online) and ASOS (online) of beauty products that I want to try, without spending too much money and still having enough product to test out and decide weather like it or not. I got 4, as you can see from the photo, about a month ago, and tested all of them. 2 hits and 2 misses, and if you want to find out what my thoughts are, then keep on reading.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer - Hit!
Almost all youtubers and beauty bloggers use this bronzer and say it is one of THE best they have ever tried. I will stand by them and say that the color of Hoola gives the most natural and healthy look to the skin. I am not a fan of contouring, but I do like my skin to look sun-kissed. Once my mini empties, I am definitely going to buy the full size! LOVED IT!!

>Buy the mini 17.99 euro
>Buy the full size 35.99 euro

Benefit Roller Liner Eyeliner - Miss... 
Well, I had tried the Roller Lash Mascara and I didn't like it either, but I wanted to give it a try, since it is time for me to replace my eyeliner. Unfortunately, it turned out as mediocre as the mascara. Although it is very easy to create a stable line and a sharp wing, after less than two hours, it becomes runny and ruins my eye makeup and my under-eye concealer. It's a mess! I am not repurchasing, but I will keep it in my handbag for an emergency.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer - Hit!
Another beauty product that most youtubers and beauty bloggers swear by and suggest that I had on my beauty shopping list. There were two available colors in mini size @ Sephora: Vanilla and Custard. I got Vanilla, which was the lighter one, and fortunately very similar to my skin tone. It is one of the best concealers I have ever tried! It is creamy and hydrating, which is very important for my under-eye area since I am almost 41 and I have fine lines under my eyes. Also, it is covering my dark circles perfectly and brightens them up, without making them look grey. I am definitely buying the full size as soon my mini is emptied! LOVED IT!!

> Buy the full size 33.99 euro - available in 19 shades

Too Faced Peach Mist - Miss...
I love this brand, Too Faced, it is one of my favorite, since it first came to Greece; I have many products that I keep using and repurchasing over the years, I could actually do a full face look with just the Too Faced products I own! This setting spray, however, is a disaster! I never expected to use the word "disaster" to describe a Too Faced product, but thanks to Peach Mist, that time has come. The only nice about it is the peachy scent, which doesn't last more than 30" btw, but other than that, everything else is a fail. The spraying device does not spread the product evenly, it is actually "spitting" you... It leaves visible traces on your skin, like large drops of water. Does not mattify it, does not set it, does none of the things it is supposed to do! Instead, it ruins your entire look and your mood! I don't recommend it and I am not keeping the remaining product either. I am that pissed!
