This month looks a little...makeup light.

Cute bag!


Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream ($5.30) - This is a really good eye cream. It definitely seemed to work to help my eye bags, not so much for the darkness, maybe a little for my wrinkles. There wasn't enough in here to see long-term benefits but the short-term seemed to do something.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer ($5.46) - I used to be OB-SESSED with the Photo Finish Primer so when this came out, I was thrilled. I like this more as a primer than as a moisturizer but overall, I'd use this again if it was sent to me.


GLAMGLOW Supercleanse ($3.20) - This is okay. Nothing amazing but nothing horrible as well. I only used this maybe once before passing this along as it's not my favorite.

Lancome Clis Booster XL ($9.58) - Instant pass. I don't need any more lashes.


Briogeo Don't Dispair, Repair! (Sample) - This is my favorite non-indie deep conditioner and I hoard these samples for when I travel so I can have my favorite deep conditioner and not carry a lot of product.

OleHenriksen Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask ($10.67) - The word 'detox' scared my dry skin. Now that I have combo skin, I probably would have kept it and used it up. Old dry skin Kiersten passed this along.


This bag was valued at $34.21, well over the cost of the bag. I liked about half of the bag so it was fine for me, although I still wish there was a bit more customization in these bags.

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