The Look Bag! February 2012

1 Mar

Yep, another one! I’m trying out a new monthly beauty subscription called The Look Bag. I was suckered in because InStyle Magazine endorses this service, so I figured it would probably be worth a try. It’s $10 per month and you receive 20% off all products in their store. You can visit The Look Bag website for more details if you’re interested in becoming a subscriber.

My February The Look Bag items:

  • Shadow Shields
  • Jus D’Amour Perfume
  • Cailyn Gel Eyeliner
  • Cailyn Shimmer Powders
  • LaLicious Body Butter
  • S.S. Soap Co Gingerbread Soap
  • Obliphica Hair Mask

This swatch was done using the brush included with the liner and was dipped only one time. VERY pigmented.

I’m not gonna lie, I wasn’t that impressed with the items. The value of the bag was pretty good, but nothing really stood out to me as anything that special.

As for the samples I didn’t really care for: The Shadow Shields are a clever idea but they look pretty cheap. I hate perfume samples and this one inparticular was very tiny. I’m already a fan of the LaLicious line so that sample wasn’t too exciting.

What I did like: It’s always nice to receive quality makeup in these subscription boxes. Cailyn is a mineral makeup line and they make some very nice items. I love the way the gel liner is packaged, it’s very unique. It comes with an application brush wand that twists off the pot of liner. The shimmer powders are stunning crushed minerals, very very sparkly. If sparkly isn’t your thing then you will not like these lol. I’m always looking for a good hair mask, so I was happy with the Obliphica sample. Soap is not something I would normally like to receive in a beauty sampler, but OMG this soap smells A-MAY-ZING. I just love it.

I’m still on the fence with this service but I will stay subscribed for at least a couple more months before I make my final decision.

Disclosure: Not sponsored in any way.  I pay for my subscription with my own money.

    Looks like a decent enough bag, but I also don’t like fragrance samples.
