The first Fab Bags of 2014 are here!!!
I'm still not used to calling it a 'Fab Bag'. Somehow I still prefer the name 'Vellvette'!
Surprisingly, I'm one of the last ones to receive my bag this time, even though regular subscribers' bags are shipped early. I'm terribly disappointed with their shipping and dispatch service.
I even asked them about it on their Facebook page, but no response was forthcoming! :(
Anyway, let's see what's inside my bags! This time I received four products, plus some Twitter Party prizes.
Here are the contents of each bag (4 products plus some prizes in each):
1) 'I Love...' Strawberry Face Mask (Bag #1 + Twitter Prize, 15 ml)
Ah, if there's one brand I love, it's this one. I'm always excited about face masks, so I'm glad I got three masks in my bag. However, I assumed I was going to get three different flavours as my prize, but I was given strawberry anyway.
This is a peel-off mask, so I'm guaranteed to have some fun with it. It claims to refresh and cleanse the skin as well as leave you with a tasty strawberry scent. Mmmm!
This product, I love!
2) Nyassa Body Butter (Alphonso, Bag #1; Almond, Bag #2; 50 g)
I can never have enough of body butter! The almond one smells amazing and claims to have anti-aging properties, but the mango one doesn't appeal to me very much. I'm not a fan of the fruit or the flavour.
And the almond body butter had leaked from its container. I hope Fab Bag works on its packaging from next time onwards.
These products, I like!
3) Naked Potion Lotion (Bags #1 and #2, 30 g)
This organic product, launched by model Lisa Haydon, is a face moisturiser that smells like happiness and beauty! Seriously, I love the scent of this lotion.
It's completely organic and natural; a 'beauty balm' for the winters. But the expiration date is June 2014, so that's a little upsetting.
This product, I like!
4) NYX Diamond Sparkling Lipstick (Sparkling Red, Bag #1, Full Size)
I'm not a lipstick kind of girl, especially not a sparkly one, but I do like the colour. NYX is a brand that I trust, but I don't know if I would like glitter on my lips.
Out of all the colours available, Fab Bag has given me the one that I'd prefer the most, so thank you for that.
This product, I'm neutral about.
5) The Nature's Co. Spearmint Body Wash (Bag #2, 35 ml)
Spearmint gum in my mouth? Yum. But on my body? No, thank you.
Firstly, The Nature's Co. is a brand that I really don't like. I was sent their Lavender body lotion that I disliked, and I guess this one will follow the trend.
I'm all for nice fragrances, but this one doesn't even smell like nice gum. There's no chance I'm going to like this product.
This product, I dislike.
6) Lord & Berry Seta Eye Shadow (Bag #2, 2.2 g)
I like Lord & Berry as a brand and I like eyeshadows in general. But this sandy colour is rather... dull. It's too yellow for me to use as a neutral shade and not ideal for the 'smoky eye' that it promises. It's paraben-free, but other than that, I don't see any redeeming qualities in this eyeshadow.
This product, meh.
7) Twitter Prizes:
As my twitter prize, I received three strawberry face masks, two Lord & Berry eyelines, a Palette Maquillage and an 'I Love...' Blueberry & Smoothie Shower Gel.
Sadly, I was promised a 250 ml shower gel, but I received only a travel-sized bottle. I've emailed Fab Bag about this mix-up, so let's hope they send me the right one soon.
|The beautiful Palette I won!|
Also, this was the last month of my sister's subscription (Bag #2) and no renewal offers were sent alongside the bag. It's safe to say that from next month onwards, there will only be one bag for me to review.
The value of Bag #1 is Rs. 1,545 and the value of Bag #2 is 1,640.
If you received your Vellvette/Fab Bags, let me know what products you received this month and what you thought of them!
