The theme was Side Show/Movie Tickets? The bag was a pretty color but it was a tight fit for products.



Like I said before, this bag is really thin and doesn't hold a lot of product.


Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angled Blush Brush ($4.99) - I like everything about this brush except for the fact that the bristles are white and pink. The pink ends do hide some of the pigment that stains the bristles but I would still prefer a darker shade in my brushes. It applies product very nicely and evenly without any issue.

Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner (Black) ($6.99) - I have zero skill with liquid liners, so this was doomed from the start. I tried using it and it looks nice on, dries nicely and doesn't transfer, but I cannot apply it worth a crap.


Meg Cosmetics Twin Nail (Lovey Dovey) ($10.00) - These are really nice neutral shades and the polishes are three-free. They are okay, nothing phenomenal but are I would have preferred to have received one of their other duos that are more fun.

The White Company (Seychelles Hand & Nail Cream) ($2.28) - I thought this would be one of those 'fancy' scented lotions that I would have hated, but this actually smells really nice. It's warm and inviting, and moisturizes well on top of that! 

TonyMoly Liptone Lip Care Stick (Mint Light) ($10.00) - My new ultimate day lip moisturizer. This feels nice and does an amazing job moisturizing your lips without weighing them down. I highly suggest picking up one (or all three) of these!


This bag was valued at $34.26, triple the cost. I liked most of the bag, so it was a win for me! I had lost track of reviewing for a while (and I still have lost track until recently), so the bag isn't as tailored for me as it could be.

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