That is the reason I LOVE mini sets. You got to try out the product in decent sized and you can decide if it is worth purchasing the full-sized afterwards.
Benefit Bronze 'N' Dandy
I have been wanting to try their Hoola bronzer for the longest time. But I have so many bronzers already and I really don't want to buy a full-sized product to sit with my other bronzers.
4 products included: Dandelion blush, Dandlion lip gloss, Hoola lip gloss and Hoola bronzer
Sephora has released a whole bunch of holiday gift set and they have this Benefit blush/bronzer set:
cheeky sweet spot box o' blushes
I was contemplating on getting this set but I have most of the products in full-sized already and the only one I really want is the Hoola so when I saw this Bronze N Dandy set, I quickly decided I should get this instead.
Another mini set I got a few weeks ago is this Tarte gift set. It was in their sale section and I believe it is sold out now.
Tarte Prime, Shine & Define To Go Set
Set includes: primer, BB cream and a mascara
I haven't cracked open this set yet but want to try their BB cream for a while.
These mini sets are perfect for trying products out and will make awesome stocking stuffers!
