In January 2017, I volunteered at Generation Beauty LA 2017. Unfortunately, they ran out of the goody bags but they still got us another.
Here are the products I got. I already reviewed the sample Laneige BB Cushion in Light (middle left), Trust Fund Beauty in Going Commando (bottom left), and Ciate in Hutch (bottom left).

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I have no idea how the brush is for the full-size polish. I have never tried this brand until I received these mini polishes. For the sample polishes, I'm not a huge fan of the brush. They're tiny in width and length but I didn't have difficulties painting. It was easy around the cuticles and sides. If you look at the picture above, I'm just bad at painting in general. I don't clean around the cuticles like other people. If it looks nice with the naked eyes, then it's fine with me. Secondly, I don't know anything about the packaging of the full-size other than the pictures shown on their website. For the min polish, it's so small and adorable. It's sturdy and well-made. The top is also sturdy. It has a tight seal when you close the top. I cannot see it break or open unless you are rough with the packaging. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. It's also small enough to throw in your purse, bag, or even your pocket. Third, the consistency is medium. It's not too thick or too thin. It's a perfect consistency that I can take my time with painting. I don't have to worry about it getting thick or clumpy. With that said, it went on smoothly and there were no streaking and bubbles. Fourth, the color is gorgeous. It's a great spring/summer color. I also can see people wearing this during the winter. When it comes to pigmentation, it's not completely pigmented. I applied two coats but I can see some of my nails peaking through. I could have applied a third color but I'm just plain lazy. Lastly, there really isn't any shrinkage just like the other polish Trust Fund Beauty in Going Commando, Unfortunately, this one did chip but slightly. It really isn't that noticeable if you quickly glance at the nails. I only noticed because I examined my nails closely. It's mostly on the sides of the tips. I noticed on on fourth day and after that, the chips did not get bigger. If I applied a third coat, I don't know if it would have chipped. I think it chipped because the two coats were really thin and my nails were peaking through. Even with this, I'm pretty impressed with this brand.
Would repurchase: Yes.
