HauteLook Lip Beauty Bag Review

HauteLook Lip Beauty Bag

Every few months HauteLook releases a new one-time purchase beauty bag. The value is always great, they ship relatively quickly compared to other HauteLook purchases I’ve made, and they always appear in a strange non-branded box with the return address of Renee Welch! (That last part always throws me when the box arrives…”Who is this Renee Welch and what did she send me!?”)

HauteLook Lip Beauty Bag Review Items

The Box: HauteLook Lip Beauty Bag

The Cost: $24 plus shipping

The Products: $160 worth of products including the brands Lorac, Lord & Berry, Laura Geller, NYX, La Fresh and Mirenesse.

GOOD NEWS – if you missed out on this bag the first time, it goes back on sale today at 4 PM EST!

HauteLook Lip Beauty Bag Review Mirenesse

Mirenesse Glossy Lacquer Stain #2 – Value $35

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss #2 – Value $26

This Glossy Kiss stick arrived in perfectly fine condition, but I was having some difficulty opening it and managed to smash it – oh well!

HauteLook Lip Beauty Bag Review Lord + Berry

Lip Stick case – Value $2?

Laura Geller Italian Marble Lipstick in Sugared Maple – Value $18

Lord & Berry Crayon Lipstick in Scarlet – Value $18

I was expecting this to be a completely red lip bag, so I was very happy to see that my Laura Geller lipstick is a more neutral shade! The marbling is interesting too.

HauteLook Lip Beauty Bag Review LORAC

NYX Retractable Lip Liner in Ruby – Value $4.50

Crown Brush Lip Brush – Value $7.25

LORAC Lip Lustre Gloss in Ruby – Value $15

I’m a fan of this Lorac lip gloss – it’s paraben free and very shiny/shimmery!

HauteLook Lip Beauty Bag Review LA FRESH

LA Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipe – Value $.50

Swoon No More Lost Gloss – Value $15

This little swoon tool helps you get the very last drop of your lip gloss when the regular applicator isn’t cutting it. I can’t say I’ve ever used a lip gloss to the empty state, but I think I will use this with some of my skin care samples!

Verdict: I paid $24 plus shipping for this box, and I received over $140 worth of beauty products (not including the value of the bag – which is really cute!) I’m planning on sharing some of the more bolder red products, and even though I won’t be using every product this bag is still a good value for me!

What do you think of the latest beauty bag from HauteLook?

  1. This is back up on HL tonight for $10! And I have a $10 credit. Yay! Loved this review – convinced me to. get it.

  2. This beauty bag is now on sale for only $10! I just ordered.

  3. I really love this bag. I needed a new red lipstick and a makeup bag and I got both plus a lot more for the price I would have paid for just those two items. I am really enjoying your reviews and learning about new boxes although your website is a little dangerous for me!

    • I’m so glad your liked your HauteLook Lip Beauty Bag! (And I’m so glad you enjoy reading my reviews!)

  4. Just received my bag and loved it! I swatched everything and there is a lot of red but I’m just going to have fun playing with them. The only one I’ve tried is the lip bomb and I’m a convert! It’s such a fantastic color and it applied so easily! Red is always one of those really tricky lipstick colors to do right and the lip bomb gave me beautiful bright red lips with almost no effort and no mess. Amazing!

  5. Love! Love! Love! This bag, I hesitated at first and waited a day before I placed my order. I’m sooo happy that I did order. I will keep my eye on future releases.

  6. The Lord & Berry crayon is super bright, too. I love it because it’s red, although it does kind of get on everything. You should see the mug I drink tea out of while I’m at work!

    • Also, I think the Swoon tool will be good for the Mirenesse lip bomb because the applicator wand totally doesn’t reach all the way to the end of the tube.

  7. I loved all the colors as I wanted to try more reds 🙂 I got the NYX in the Nectar like someone else and it is a horrible color on me 🙁 I wish I had gotten a more coral or red color of lip liner but oh well. I guess Ill swab it and put it in the trade pile 🙁 If anyone has another color I would love to swap 🙂

  8. I got mine day before yesterday and did the review yesterday (GO CHECK IT OUT!!). It’s driving me nuts I can’t find more of those beautiful lipstick cases. All I know is it by “Allegro” hmm.

  9. I ALMOST broke the Glossy Kiss stick. Luckily only a teeny bit chipped off. I wore that today and boy, that is a stain lipstick alrighty. I got a smudge onto my arm and it has not washed out for the entire day. However, the product, over time, did fade from my lips so it does need to be reapplied every couple of hours. When I first put it on, a little can be a lot. The color is so intense that a thin layer looks great. I only wish it didn’t have an orange undertone to it, since I’m so fair-skinned with cool undertones.

    The only difference with the rest of the products I got is the NYX retractable lip liner came in Nectar, which is lovely. 🙂 I can’t wait to try everything! This was an awesome purchase.

  10. I really want this but unfortunately, it doesn’t ship to Canada. I wish I could find great deals like this that ship here!

  11. I not a huge fan of red. But I absolutely loved the bag and all its goodies! My favorite thing by far was the marbled lipstick. Wore it today and it goes beautifully with my complexion!!!! Just curious was this a monthly thing or a one time thing with HauteLook Lip?

  12. I did the same thing to the Glossy Kiss! Argh, but since I had broken it, I tried it right away, and I think I am going to love it. It looks red in the tube, but on my lips it looks more like my natural lip color but really bold. I am afraid of red, and decided this was a good way to try some. I am glad I did. I am looking forward to playing!

  13. Ah! I bought this. I couldn’t resist at only $24! Out of the close to 10 different red lip shades I’ve tried, I’ve only found one or two that I think look okay with my fair skin and somewhat conservative style. Oh well. I figure I can swab what won’t look good.

    AND, I ended up purchasing $75 worth of clothing on the site! I had never visited before!! Such awesome deals! And I’m especially happy that I can make returns at a Nordstrom Rack. Makes it even easier 🙂

  14. Just got mine! The lip liner was in an apricot shade “Citrus”, which seemed odd with all the red, but I’m actually glad since I have red lip liner already.

  15. the bag is adorable!

  16. So the Laura Geller lipstick is supposed to be marbled? I thought mine was old and had gone bad! Good to know it’s supposed to be like that. Guess I should’ve looked it up before sending HauteLook an e-mail. (Oops. I feel kind of silly now.)

    Everything in my bag was great; I’m wearing the Mirenesse lip bomb right now. Red is totally my favorite color even though it’s not really conservative (I work at a law office) but I kind of don’t care.

    • Don’t feel bad – I thought mine was molded or had gone bad, too. The marbled spot was right on the top / tip and looked so strange – on mine there’s more of the lighter color at the top than the actual lipstick shade. I Googled it and then IM’ed a friend who had just received her bag as well – she was about to toss her tube and I caught her in time!

      • I feel better that I’m not the only one. The top of mine was normal but for some reason I twisted it out of the tube and there was a whole bunch of marbling on the sides. I guess I just haven’t seen this before (except once on some really old chocolate, which is why I thought some fatty ingredient in the lipstick had turned!).

        I think if there had been a product information card in there, like with a lot of boxes, I might have realized what was going on. I just got some coupon codes printed on cards, though.

        Oh well, it was a great value and I’ll use everything in there! And the shipping experience (other than the strange return address thing) was much more pleasant than I was expecting.

  17. I got this bag too! I love it! It definitely was a great value. I got the same colors except for in the NYX liner, I received the color Fruit Punch (which is a more pinky red shade.

  18. I really wanted to get this the first time around but forgot to go back and get it. I’m going to get it for sure today! So excited! 🙂

  19. That looks like a great box and I love red and NEED red….after I just said no more boxes I may have to get this one if the shipping is free.
