  1. Sorry to hear your box was terrible. I used to really enjoy their mystery boxes until they became so repetitive. One of the last straws was counting an eyeliner sharpener as one of the products (it was a Buxom liner sharpener which they didnt even include)…and full size mascaras became sample sized, etc. I wonder what’s happened to BM, they havent had new palettes in a long time.

  2. Horrible box mines going back 6 sple sized items or birthday freebies put in box avtotal ripvoff

    • I guess I just have to suck it up and just live with my choices. My pop of color lip oil was rancid.. gross😠
      And the sample sizes are ridiculous. I would send it back but I sampled or tested the products and it’s not worth the hassle for me. I did kindly email them to let them know about the lip oil..

  3. Last mystery box was a big disappointment eyeshadow were dull colors and the cases had some sticky residue on them that wouldn’t come off why don’t they ever include face powders for which they are known for

  4. Me too. I would have grabbed this at the usual mystery bag price, but not for $55. There are a few items I had wanted to try and there’s actually a nice mix rather than the usual lip gloss and eyeliner stash. Maybe they will learn from this, as it didn’t sell out quickly like they used to.

  5. I’m not impressed with this mystery bag either. Though, if it were 25 bucks I would get it. But not for 55, especially since I know they are just clearing old stock.
    Also, I’m still waiting for them to send me my correct shade of foundation after waiting for weeks. They had a big mess up with the sku#’s since they launched the new shades at the end of Jan and haven’t corrected it completely. So frustrating!

  6. Copied from Reddit….

    From what I can decipher after purchasing:

    buxom bronzer tahiti
    brush (soft focus face?)
    5-in-1 Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow – rich camel
    Marvelous Moxie Lipliner – Jazzed
    BareSkin Sheer Sun Bronzer deluxe sample
    Well-Rested CC Cream – under eye brightener stick
    Buxom Liner Brush
    Eyecolor (loose) – bare skin
    Lasting Line Eyeliner – eternal bronze

    Precise concealer brush
    Ready 2.0 in the Top Shelf

    • Ohhh…this actually looks like a great box…but 4 brushes 🤔 i have the soft focus and love it, but dont need more lip liner and shadow brushes 😐😐😐….since 2 products are sample size, and the balm and eyeliner are repeats…. i think i can convince myself to sit it out….unless a steep discount pops up 🙄🙄

      • Actually, theres a chance the buxom bronzer in tahiti is also travel sized, since it was made for a promo set 😣

    • This was the worst one to date i got 6 sample sizzed products and 3 old things the nicest thing was the bronzer this junk box is going back fast not worth 60 bucks

  9. Wow, I’ve been soooo disappointed by much cheaper Bare Minerals mystery bags than this. The last time I got sucked in I received a rancid lip oil. It was disgusting. I called the company for a replacement and the replacement was also rancid. I only buy Bare Minerals if I see it at Marshall’s now.

  10. Won’t do it! This is an EASY pass for me because of the price increase! Lower the price, Bareminerals, and I will definitely buy!

  11. I’ve been fighting myself on this one for a few hours now. But my reasoning is for their price I could go online and buy something I really know I would like. Instead if getting something I might or might not like. Let’s just see if I stay strong 😆

  12. Ooh, possible spoilers up on Reddit!

  13. I broke down

    • Dammit I caved in too😆

      Well hopefully it’s fab😏
      Addiction is crazy..
      At least I’m addicted to makeup.
      There’s worse things to be addicted to…

      • For me it’s skincare, but I totally agree with you. Being addicted to skincare is NOT a problem (but I know others would object so to that I say… thank goodness that’s the only “problem” I have), so I make no apologies for it. 🙂

  14. Ooh, major FOMO for this one for some reason! :/

    • Meee too!😕

  15. Easy pass. Seems they jacked up the price by $20…plus I have a bin full of BM products from past boxes up for swap. I didn’t want them…and it seems neither does anyone else…

  16. Last time I got 4 brown eyeliners. That was my end with their mystery boxes.

  17. I’ve been buying their mystery bags for years, but agree that’s too much without any spoilers. If someone buys this, please post the product list!

  18. I bought these in the past and honestly I’m no longer impressed with their products. I’ve had problems with their products expiring. I bought several 5 in 1 shadows I the store and they expired within a month. Seriously? The last mystery box I got I received items set at or very near expiring. It’s a clean out of old lines as I think they don’t see the turnover of products they use to. I just gave a ton of BM powder, lipsticks, eyeliners and shadows away. There are so many superior product brands out there.

  19. Pass on this one. It’s just a little too pricey for a mystery box. But I’ve gotten a few in the past and haven’t been disappointed. I don’t care that they’re clearing out old stock. I always end up with at least half I really like, and give the other stuff to my friends.

    But can we point out something a little funny? In the pic for the free gifts, they spelled exhilarate wrong 😶

  20. I bought a few of these in the past but stopped because it seems they only send out eyeshadow that are super sparkly and a lot of repeat items.

  21. I bought these before, and it sounded like a really great deal. I even had a birthday code for a free gift. I was HORRIBLY disappointed! Eye liners… again… cosmetic bag looked horrible, just bad colors. I will never be tempted into any of these again.

  22. Seems kinda pricey

    • Ya, I was shocked when I saw the price, these are usually $35. And you know the ‘value’ has been grossly inflated to the ‘retail’ price, even though all the items are going to be old stock that’s been clearance priced for a long while!!!

    • I wonder if it’s going to be worthy it. I mean, they are promising a higher value, but will it be with good / useful stuff?

    • I agree. $55 is expensive for a mystery box. I don’t like going above $25 or so when I don’t know what I’m getting, even if that means fewer items and lower retail value.

    • It does but wondering if they will actually put in higher quality products like a palette?

      • Agree, the only thing that would make this worthwhile is if they put in a large 4 or 8 pan palette.

        • Off the top of my head i would say unlikely bc its 15 peices and most of their basic stuff (lip gloss, eyeliners ) is prices around $15 per peice, so that alone gets us to the $240 rsv. If they add a $30 primer or $20 brush or $20 mascara it doesnt leave much room for a $40 palette… :/ id be more hopeful if it was say a 10 peice bag for this price 🤔

          • Right. I saw that Reddit spoiler and looks like there’s a Ready 2 pan palette that’s kind of boring. I’ll pass. They had the 8 pan neutral palettes all on sale for $20 around holiday time and I wish I’d bought one then.

    • I too can’t justify $55 for a mystery box. I have purchased a couple in the past at the $35 price point and managed to keep/swap enough for it to be worth it, but $55 is more than I’m willing to spend.
