Test transaction vs reusing addresses

People usually recommend to do a test transaction with a very small amount of BTC to make sure you got the right receive address before sending the actual amount of BTC you want to send.

However, it’s also recommended to not reuse addresses, which if I’m not mistaken means not sending to the same receive address more than once.

Aren’t these two advices incompatible, or am I missing something?

I for one don’t do test transactions, checking the receive address visually is enough for me.
