Inside my Beautylish Lucky Bag!

Once a year Beautylish releases a limited edition "Lucky Bags" for sale that contains various items from the brands they carry. Ever since it launched in 2012 I've never been able to get my hands on one because of the variations and my inability to makeup my mind so by the time I do makeup my mind it's sold out. This year there were no variations so there was no choice for me to make and as such I got to order one! Yay!

I placed my order on December 26 and the package shipped January 4, 2016 from San Fransisco California via FedEx. FedEx was a tease because originally it said it would arrive on Saturday, January 9 then on Thursday night the update said it would arrive on Friday. Tease! By Friday night it reverted back to a Saturday delivery. So this morning my box arrived and I broke out into my happy dance. So what's inside my Lucky Bag?

My Beautylish 2016 Lucky Bag.
I have to admit I've been stalking Instagram to see what bag variations there were so I knew that there were variations with Viseart palettes - I was so hoping to get that but I didn't but what I did get was pretty good. In my Lucky Bag (box) I received the following items:

Bioderma Sensibio H2O 100 ml (retail $6.95)
I actually already own this but in the 250 ml size and really do like it. I've been hoping Beautylish would get the "pro pack" in stock since it contains two 250 ml bottles plus the 100 ml bottle for the same price at the 500 ml bottles. My 100 ml bottle will actually be passed to my daughter for her makeup kit since she'll be graduating cosmetology school at the end of February. If you want to see a side-by-side of the 250 ml vs the 100 ml bottles I have a pic up on Facebook.

Bioderma is made in France.

Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 (Retail: $48)
Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 is a brand new product not yet available - as of this blog post original posting - on Beautylish's site. I received palette #4 of 13 palette variations. The palette is made in Italy so you know it's conforming to EU standards. Italian shadows have a reputation of being very high quality so I'm excited to try this palette.

Wayne Goss Brush 05 (Retail: $20)
This is my second Wayne Goss brush having been sent the Brush 04 before. These brushes from the Wayne Goss line are hand made in Japan using natural fibers. In my Lucky Bag I received Wayne Goss Brush 05 which is part of the The Anniversary Set (retail: $225).

Kevyn Aucoin The Pure Powder Glow - Myracle (Retail: $37)
If you don't know who Kevyn Aucoin was then you really need to pick up his books to see how his techniques changed how makeup was viewed. His legacy continues today with his own brand of cosmetics and in my Lucky Bag I received Kevyn Aucoin's The Pure Powder Glow in Myracle which is made in the US. Myracle is a super bright, hot pink that I'm sure more people would be super intimidated by or even horrified. Keep in mind that Kevyn's products while made for everyone really is aimed for pros. Personally I love the color and think it's really going to look amazing on various tones.

BY TERRY Baume de Rose Parure (Tree Decoration) (Retail: $31)
Terry de Gunzburg's By Terry line is another great line carried by Beautylish. I received the Baume de Rose Parure (Tree Decoration). This version of the Baume de Rose was a limited edition and is currently out of stock. This too was made in France.

BECCA Backlight Priming Filter (Retail: $38)
I'm excited to try the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter that came in my Lucky Bag. According to Beautylish's site, "BECCA Backlight Priming Filter helps to blur imperfections and impart a radiant glow."

Made in the USA.

IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes Clinically Proven 5-in-1 Mascara (Retail: $24)
Last but not least in my 2016 Lucky Bag came IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes Clinically Proven 5-in-1 Mascara. I've been reading lots of good things about IT Cosmetics products and while I have sampled a few items I've never tried Jamie's mascara before.

Made in the USA.

Overall my Lucky Bag from Beautylish was pretty good. I paid $80 ($75 + $5 shipping) and the overall retail value was $204.95. The products were made in the USA, Japan, France and Italy and pretty much everything are products that you would find in a professional makeup artist kit. Beautylish's 2016 Lucky Bag did not disappoint me in the least. Granted I still wish my Lucky Bag contained a Viseart palette but I'll just order one from Frends. ;) Can't wait for December 2016 for the 2017 Lucky Bag release!
