Bare Minerals Holiday Mystery Box Available Now!

Thanks Jenny and Andrea for letting us know about this new mystery box from Bare Minerals!

The Box: Bare Minerals Holiday Mystery Collection

The Cost: $35 with $2 for Rush Holiday Shipping

The Products: a 10-piece collection of mystery items from Bare Minerals.

FYI – based on the comments on the last Bare Minerals mystery box I posted about, I’m guessing this box wasn’t as good as most people were expecting, so take that into account if you are thinking about purchasing this box!

  1. I ordered and my confirmation had another product bundle on it in addition to the two Mystery packs. So I’m guessing whatever’s in that makes up the price difference to add up to $162. At least I hope.

    • did you read it though? it says like “dummy pack” or something. gee. thanks! hahaha

    • Did you spend more than $60? There’s supposed to be an additional mystery pack.

  2. DONT READ IF YOU WANT THIS BAG TO BE A SUPRISE ! I just saw what was in the bag and its not very impressive. If anyone out there is wondering about the contents because they are debating making this purchase there is a make up set with grayish colored eye shadows and a white one ( this is what it appears to be), a blush, mascara and lip gloss. In the second set there are 2 striped lip glosses. I was debating buying this, but decided against it.

  3. What is everyone else seeing that it says is in it? When I click it it just sends me to their “specials” page 🙁

    • when it is in your shopping cart, you can click the hyperlinks for “holiday mystery 1” and “holiday mystery 2”.

  4. I actually really liked the last Bare Minerals mystery box. Yes it was like all eye stuff, but I’ll use everything in it compared to the very first mystery box I got. This one looks like 9 products and not that great, if Krista is right and when you click on it and that’s what you get. Last time you could see some of the items they were sending by clicking on the links in your cart.

  5. Also I think you can “see” what’s in this one if you click on the Holiday Mystery Collection items. If it goes by that anyway.

    • Thanks for the info, clicked on the surprise links & yep…not ordering. You saved me money today.

      • I did the same which is why I’m baffled by how they got to the $162 value. If the kits are $18 and $54 on the site…where’s the remaining $90 value? #mathfail

        • Maybe if you add up everything separate, including the brushes. Even if, still wouldn’t add up to $162

    • Where are you seeing that?

    • How do you see what’s in it? I can’t figure out how people are seeing it. Thanks!

      • When you go to the checkout page, the two mystery items have their own links underneath the actual mystery box. Just click on the blue links for each mystery & it will show whats in the mystery #1 & #2

    • thanks for the heads up! i love moxie glosses, so i’m going to take a chance!

    • Thanks Krista for the tip!
      This seems like a good deal, but “potentially” one of the mystery gifts is a kit that can be purchases for $54, or on sale at macy’s right now for $38. So it’s a great deal if you wanted that kit, but if you didn’t…

  6. I enjoyed the last box. Yes, it was heavy on eye products. But it’s a MYSTERY box, you’re not guaranteed that the selection is going to be spread out over certain areas.

  7. I just ordered a bunch of Bare Minerals stuff from Ulta (they had a special going yesterday). Didn’t pay as much as this costs (points + discount coupon) and I also got two lipsticks and two bottles of my usual foundation. So I think I’ll pass this time.

  8. The last box was old products so hopefully they took the previous feedback into account before currating this box. I’m not ordering this based on the last box but I’m curious to see the upcoming review.

  9. im debating… i got the box in september and it was just ok. reading the comments on the one in november and it didn’t sound great. hmmm…
