Does this bag look so elegant, so fancy, so WRINKLED? I can't deal.



Info sheet.


Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence (Sample) - Imagine a nighttime version of a fresh and floral perfume. I don't hate it but it's not my favorite perfume I've received. 

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream ($10.54) - It does what it says, refreshes and gives a nice POP to your eyes first thing in the morning. The size isn't big enough to convince me it works, but I have considered getting a full size once I run out of my current eye cream.

Sephora Collection LashCraft Mascara ($7.27) - This actually was an immediate pass. I have so many mascaras and I honestly got tired of receiving them in boxes, so I immediately passed this along to my mother. She's all about getting longer lashes, the specific claim of this mascara, and I struggle with lengthening mascaras and my glasses.


NARS Velvet Lip Glide (Bound) ($15.60) - Like a comfort matte, but even more comfortable. The shade is a rose pink but it seems to be a little darker than that. Either way, it's a gorgeous pink that's comfortable to wear throughout the day. I haven't wear-tested it so it might need to be reapplied, but that's generally not an issue for me. The applicator is amazing and perfect to get into corners without making a mess!

Clinique Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer ($4.16) - Another sample size item, so it's still hard to find out if it actually works in the long term. In the short term, I haven't found any issues that would cause me concern to use longterm. It might be one that I buy at a full size, but probably only during the VIB sale.

Too Faced Lip Injection Glossy (Milkshake) ($4.71) - Oh dear, I had a bad time the last time I tried a Lip Injection (I tried the hardcore one and had the tinglies for hours) but this one isn't as bad. I only wish it weren't glossy, as I'm still all about the matte finish. The shade is a bit light for my taste, so it ended up being a pass.


NARS Velvet Lip Glide (Bound) Swatch.


This bag was valued at $41.28, a great deal for only $10! I definitely loved the NARS lippie and I only wish the samples of the skincare had been a touch bigger. Otherwise, this was a pretty good bag!

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
