Beautylish Lucky Bag - 2015/2016

23 January 2016
If you've never heard of a Lucky Bag then let me introduce you to a world of wonder.

In Japan, it's custom for retailers to put together mystery bags full of goodies that they usually stock and then heavily discount the bags for the New Year. For someone like me who loves a surprise you can probably image that this is right up my alley and I want to go to Japan for their New Year solely for this reason.

A couple of years ago I dicovered that Beautylish did Lucky Bags, they go on sale on Boxing Day (US time) and then are packaged up and sent off in the New Year. I was crushed when I discovered they didn't send them to Australia. Absolutely crushed.

I would watch unboxing videos and read blog posts and have major Lucky Bag envy and after Christmas of 2014 I found out that the Lucky Bags of 2015/2016 would be available to Aussies. I can not even begin to tell yoiu how excited I was.

So the 27th of December rolled around (remember we live in the Future here in Australia) and I directed myself to the Beautylish website where I filled out a little survey to help them pick items suitable for me and finally purchased myself a Luck Bag.

The Lucky Bag itself set me back $75USD and shipping was $10USD so in total I paid about $125AUD because fuck you economy.

My bag (box) arrived early January and I could not wait to dip in to it!

When I opened the box and started seeing familiar brands staring me back in the face I was extremely impressed!

Too Faced Sugar Pop Palette (mini palettes retail for $53AUD at Mecca but this one isn't stocked from the look of things) - Love Too Faced, love palettes, love the colours (check out the video), obviously really happy to have this.

Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector RRP $55AUD - I literally just bought a tube of this and my skin doesn't respond to it as well as it use to. A little devastated.

Bioderma Sebium H2o Micellar Lotion RRP $20.99AUD - When I was looking at a price for this I was shocked to see that it'll set you back $21 at Priceline. What the actual fuck? Anyway, I really love Bioderma Micellar Lotions and I'll absolutely use this.

RMS Beauty Cream Eyeshadow in Karma RRP $38AUD - Colour isn't really my cup of tea unfortunately but I'm going to give it a whirl with some smoky eyes before I give it a big thumbs down.

Wayne Goss The Brow Set RRP $55USD ($79.26AUD) - These brushes are gorgeous! Very sleek, ticking all the boxes design wise, super excited to try these out!

It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil RRP $24USD ($34.59AUD) - A universal brow pencil with a spoolie on the end, colour looks good, steering clear of the orange spectrum (swatch in video). Will absolutely use and very pleased to be able to try it out.

Obviously some of these items are a little difficult to find in Australia so I had to do a little currency conversion here and there but you get the general idea of the value. Total value of the contents: $280.84AUD

Yes I will buy next years (this years?) box. I suggest you sign up to the mailing list if you're interested here.
