This is my favorite bag design yet!
Clear and practical, but holographic to keep it fun? Yes, please!
Now, on to the items!
I was traveling this past week, and I packed this mask for hydration post-flight – it was great! I normally take off masks once they hit the minimum time needed, but this time I left it on for all 20 minutes.
Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Honey Mask To Purify & Nourish – 15 ml Value $6.80
This is a purifying mask designed to “draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, impurities and debris.” And it works! My skin felt significantly smoother and cleaner after I removed the mask. And it didn’t dry my skin out either – impressive!
Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray – 15 ml Value $7.50
This is another product I tested while traveling. It’s a lightweight spray that helps set makeup, and in my case, my makeup looked as best as it has ever looked post-Redeye flight, so it get’s an A+ from me! (And the spray nozzle allowed me to mist my face instead of soaking it – always appreciated when it comes to setting makeup!)
Lancôme L’Absolu Lip Lacquer – 1.5 ml Value $4.87
This is a lip gloss/lip stain hybrid. You can apply multiple coats to get a full-coverage look, too.
The gloss part wears down pretty quickly, but the stain holds for a while and wears down evenly, too. Here it is swatched:
IT Cosmetics Confidence In An Eye Cream – 5 ml Value $12.67
This is a rich and decadent eye cream. The color is supposed to help color correct and brighten, in addition to the formula reducing the look of puffiness, dark circles, lines, and wrinkles. I personally didn’t notice any brightening changes, so I’ll stick to using this at night only since it takes a while to absorb.
Juicy Couture Oui Eau de Parfum Spray – 1.5 ml Value $2.50
This is a sweet fragrance with notes of Jasmine Absolute, Wild Tuberose, and Dewy Honeysuckle. It’s not for me (I’m not much of a perfume wearer), but I’ve always loved Juicy Couture perfume bottle design, and this full-size version is another fun one!
Verdict: This box has an estimated value of about $38.34 (not counting the makeup bag.) I think that’s a decent value for a $15 beauty box. The makeup bag and $5 coupon definitely help, too. I liked almost all of the products, and sample sizes were good, too.
