A few weeks ago Taneja’s Bride did a post on possible Mother’s Day gifts. She mentioned the HauteLook Spring Beauty Bag. I have been a member of HauteLook for a long time and noticed the bag before, too, but it was always sold out before I could get my hands on it. Of course, after seeing it on Taneja’s Bride, it was sold out. Luckily, a few days later, I got another HauteLook email that there were more up for grabs. Mrs. Taneja was kind enough to email but I was already on it! I received the bag on Thursday and am absolutely thrilled with the contents!
The bag is a shiny vinyl. The interior has a great lining and the entire pouch looks easy to clean. I love the navy and white stripes. I almost feel like I could take this with my for a weekend away in the Hamptons.
First up is a full size jar of Suki Skincare Exfoliate Cleanser. Made with lemongrass and natural sugar, this cleanser rejuvanates the face with alpha hydroxy acid and helps to de-gunk pores and obliterate dead skin cells. I can’t wait to try this out! $32.95 US/ 4 oz
Keeping with the clean, the bag also has a variety of five LA Fresh wipes, three types of face wipes, a make-up remover wipe, and a body smoother wipe. These are going right into my travel bag! There are also three samples of Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer in pink, rose gold, and bronze shimmer. I’m not one for an unnatural glow but they might be fun to try.
The mini Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten in Berry is a multi-shade blush with a touch of shimmer. I can’t wait t try it.
I am happy to report that the next products are full size and by LORAC! The first is LORAC Eyeshadow in Celebutante ($19 US), a very shimmery teal. Eyes with a pop of color are big this season. I think mine is broken and is now a “loose” pigment- I am calling HauteLook today. I will try to use this to line my eyes in its loose state. There is also LORAC 3D Lashes Mascara ($22 US) , which claims to deliver up to 3X the volume. I L-O-V-E voluminous lashes.
To apply the lovely eyeshadow, I will use the Crown Brush Pro Blending Fluff. I use Crown Brushes and the quality is amazing. (On sale now at Crown Brush for $4.12 US!)
Another sample in the bag is Jessica Simpson’s Vintage Bloom. I wore a Jessica Simpson perfume for a bit but gave it away. I will give this a whirl- I think I have smelled it in a store and I was a little impressed. The travel sized Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Demolition will keep me in line with the cat eye trend and NYX full size lipstick in Shiva will help me mouth off in hot pink. I am a fan of both products and can’t wait to try out the shade.
The value of the bag is worth way more than the $25 US I paid and I think it was curated well. I contacted HauteLook about my eyeshadow and… they gave me back $5 US. I am happy with that and their customer service is always fabulous! Well done, HauteLook. I will be buying this again next spring!
