After a one year hiatus, I am back on the Beautylish Lucky Bag band wagon. This is my fourth Beautylish Lucky Bag in five years. I did not partake in the fukubukuro tradition last year (truth be told I was kinda over it). This year (well last year) I got my mojo back and here we are. You want some background about the Beautylish Lucky Bag, you can read my 2016, 2017 and 2018 reviews. To find out what I got this year, keep on reading.
Juno & Co Microfibre Rose Velvet Sponge ($6)
I am not really a beauty sponge person. I have beauty sponges and beauty blenders in my beauty stash, but don’t reach for them. The microfiber aspect of the sponge is novel but I am not convinced that it is going to be effective on my skin. This will get passed along to a friend.
Good Molecules Silicone Free Moisturising Primer ($14)
I am not really a primer person, but I am always ready to have my mind changed. I have tried a small sample of the Good Molecules Cleansing Balm and I enjoyed it. Good Molecules is Beautylish’s in house skincare brand so every lucky bag contains one of their products. If I were to buy a primer I would definitely go for the moisturising option so once I have worked through my existing primer stash, I will be cracking it open.
Wayne Goss #5 brush ($20)
I received this bush in my 2016 lucky bag. I really like it so I am not averse to having another one in my stash.
Danessa Myricks Illuminating Veil in Goddess ($22)
I love Danessa Myricks so I was really happy to see her products in the Dark Deep Lucky bags. I am working on a liquid illuminator for my 2020 project pan otherwise I would start using it straight away. Luckily Danessa’s products have expiry dates so I have until the end of 2021 to use it up.
Charlotte Tilbury Latex Love in Video Vixen ($34)
I am growing in my love of lip glosses, and a pigmented one is definitely up my street. It is a deep red and of course, I wish it was purple, but without having tried the formula, I don’t know whether I love it or not.
Natasha Denona Metropolis Palette ($129)
I received a five pan Natasha Denona in my 2017 lucky bag. Natasha’s palettes are viewed as the pinnacle of luckiness in terms of the Beautylish bag. Other high end brands are sold on Beautylish, like Tom Ford and By Terry, but they don’t participate in the promotion. The Metropolis Palette is a limited edition 28 pan palette that was created to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Natasha’s brand. As you all know I am a Pat McGrath stan, BUT eyeshadows are my favourite makeup item. I cant wait to play with the textures and do some comparisons with my beloved mother Pat shadows.
I think that the Beautylish Lucky Bag 2020 is definitely my luckiest lucky bag to date. I really like four of items that I picked. I am so-so about the Charlotte Tilbury based on the colour alone the Juno and Co sponge I would happily pass on. This time round I paid $75 for the bag, $15 for shipping and $18 for duties and taxes. A grand total of $108 dollars. The total value of my lucky bag is $225 dollars. So based on the cost paid of the lucky bag alone, I got three times the value. Based on the total cost of everything that I paid, I got double the value. So I am happy with bag. Let me know if you got a bag, what was in it and if you are happy with it.
