Well, this month's Fab Bag is here. And just like last month, I'm disappointed.
The bag is red with checkered black prints. Nothing too special. This time I received three products + one V-day bonus + one free sample.
Here's what I got.
1) Tommy G Dual Lipstick (Fuchsia, #12):
That would be a good thing, except for the fact that the colour is repugnant. In my questionnaire I clearly stated my preference for natural pink lip colours. As for this colour.... well, at least Joker approves.
A dual lipstick, the shade is too much but the gloss is too little. It's also extremely drying.
Maybe I can use it as a nail polish. The only question is if I'll ever be able to get it off.....
The lipstick applicator is bent and the tube leaks a little. So it's not just about the colour; the product is faulty as well!
This product, I dislike.
2) Vivel Cell Renew Fortify + Repair Kit:
Firstly, it's Vivel. I can buy this from the street. Secondly, I already have free samples from magazines lying around my house, unused. And thirdly, all three products expire in the next 2-4 months!
The kit consists of a moisturiser, a body lotion and a hand cream. I doubt I'll make any use of this product. It's not worth messing up my beauty/skincare regime just to use the kit before its expiration.
This product, meh.
(Now let's move on to the smallest products in the world!)
3) Thalgo Smoothing Brightening Fluid (2 ml):
I know Thalgo is a very reputed brand, and I'm sure its products are more than satisfactory. But a sample this small just isn't enough to judge the effects!
Although I'm sure this fluid could dramatically enhance the radiance of my skin, sadly there won't be enough for a second application!
This product... too tiny to judge.
4) Nails Inc. Nail Lacquer (4 ml):
I've never heard of this company. It definitely isn't a luxury brand! I can't find the name of this shade anywhere on the bottle. It's a metallic gold colour that looks good on metal, yes, but not on my nails. That being said, the application is quite easy even with my shaky fingers.
However, I don't see myself using this product at all.
This product, meh.
I'm not going to say anything about the V-Day bonus, a Cookie Man cookie, because I haven't even opened the packet yet. I'm not a fan of Cookie Man.
Other subscribers got full-size products or medium sized samples. I wish I'd received the Organic Surge shampoo for dry hair, but instead I get four products out of which I will only use one. And even that product will be used up with one application.
My subscription ends in April. Unless the next two months prove to be different, I won't be renewing my subscription.
So Vellvette, thanks for not reading my questionnaire at all.
