Review: February The Look Bag Oscars Inspired-Luxury Sample Service

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

January’s Look Bag was pretty much awesome, but this February Oscar themed Look Bag has surpassed my wildest dreams for a $10.00 a month beauty sample subscription box. No I am not being dramatic, although I can guarantee the husband would think otherwise.  I also want to give The Look Bag some major props because I had one reader have an issue with her order and they sent her a FULL SIZE item as an apology! They have amazing customer service which is rare and very impressive. With that said, take a peak at what I got this month, you are going to flip out!

 

What Is This? 

-Every month, TheLookBag will deliver 4 different luxury beauty samples to your door.

-Recieve products picked by Damone Roberts

– Members will enjoy 20% of all purchases from TheLookStore.com.

-$10.00 per month, no contract, shipping included.

 

Is anyone else completely enamered at how packed out this box is?  I really don’t even think that these should be considered samples, but hey, I’m not complaining.


What It Is: This Gel Liner has a built in brush that is very flexible and easy to use with the gel liner. This liner has amazing staying power and lasts up to 24 hours. 

My Thoughts: Boys have their Transformer cars and movies…I have the Cailyn Gel Eyeliner (Black) that might possibly be the female version of the popular toy/story line. At first sight it just looks like  normal liquid liner, but make a couple twists, and it magically becomes a brush and a pot of gel eyeliner.  This Gel Eyeliner glides on smoothly, is easy to use, mess free and retails for $21.00 which makes it a killer deal that it was in this $10.00 bag! 

Price: $21.00

What It Is: This finely milled Cailyn Diamond glitter in 10 silver can be used as an eyeshadow (on top of a primer), or on the body for a bit of shimmer, it is SUPER sparkly and is kind of messy so you need to be careful when you open it up.  The Raw Natural Shimmer Powder in Honey is beautiful and would go with any skin color in my opinion.

My Thoughts: If you are a glitzy and glam kind of girl that loves sparkle…this is just for you! I definitaly felt that having these two sparkley eye options gives you the sense that this was an Oscar inspired box. With all of that said, I like pressed shadows better than loose, and the glitter I personally won’t use, but I will use it on a photo-shoot or something.

Price: $13.00

What It Is: “This Highlighter offers a soft platinum shimmer to accentuate your brow bone. Bling Bling is perfect for a special evening out, or just to enhance your stunning brows. You may also use your Bling Bling Highlighter as an eyeshadow, soft eyeliner and/or to enhance your lip gloss.”

My Thoughts: If you want your brows to look that much better, the soft platinum shimmer of the Damone Roberts Brown highlighter/Bling Bling (Platinum) will make you and your pretty arches happy campers. Just glide this FULL SIZE (yes, I know) pencil under your brow and  your eyes will be a hit. I do think you will have your find a special pencil sharpener for this because it’s sort of thick in size. I like it.

Price: $20.00

What It Is: A genius shadow shield that allows you to apply shadow and not worry about a mess all over your beautiful face.

My Thoughts: It happens to the best of us…fall out from out shadows…especially lose.  Yes, I know how to get rid of the fall out without having shields, but this just makes my job that much easier.  This is a must have for me in my makeup kit to save me time, and I am guessing would make your makeup application appear a but more prefessional.

Price: $9.99 (30 count)

What It Is:Lip Luscious Treatment is a positively modern take on the classic lip gloss. This intensely moisturizing treatment formula nourishes lips with unique ingredients while giving off the beautiful iridescent sheen. Liquid crystals offer antibacterial properties while purifying the skin and fortifying the cell surface. A combination of botanical essences and vitamins offer superior conditioning. This coveted item can be worn alone as a gloss or over lip color to change the original color’s shade.

My Thoughts: First off, I was indifferent to the color, it wasn’t my favorite, but I could layer it over something else that I like. I also didn’t feel like it stayed on my lips long at all and I didn’t find it all that moisturizing. I also would not EVER pay $36.00 for this…that’s $1.00 more than my favorite Chanel Lipstick! No, no, no.

Price: $36.00 (heck no)

Rating: It’s not you it’s me (2 points)

What It Is:Mask+Microdermabrasion+Cleanser= one amazing product from Shea Terra called Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Cleanser and Mask.

My Thoughts: This product is treated just like a mask, you apply it and wait about 5-10 minutes (you will resemble a green monster from the swamp) and then you just rinse it off to find refreshed and glowing skin…seriously. It does have an odd smell to it that I can’t really describe but it’s not bad. I actually liked this a lot and it’s really not that expensive for what you get.

Price: $18.00

  • Wow you got a lot more larger size items than me. I did get the Caiylin liner and glitters but not that other cool stuff. It’s interesting to know that not all of the boxes are the same. 

    • i think the only larger item I got was the brow pencil. But everyone get’s different things. What other thing’s did you end up getting?

  • Karissa

    I didn’t get some of that other stuff either. I got the under eye tabs, perfume, a scrub, soap, hair treatment and the Cailyn liner (wish I am completely in love with and really like how it wears and goes on). Thanks for the lead K.

    • Karissa

      oops *which 😉

    • yeah I think everyone got different things. That is usually how these types of boxes go. But- I think everyone got the liner and glitter.

  • Wow! Thanks for sharing. Which of the sample subscription boxes do you like the most? I am using Beauty Army right now, but I feel like they are only sending body and face products. I would rather get makeup (at least one piece per box) though… Suggestions?

      Well I haven’t had much experience with beauty army although I do like that you can pick your samples. I think for most sample companies it must be easier to get hair and skincare products. That’s why I was super happy with this box because it had everything. I am starting to be over the Birchbox though.

    I was passing by to see your box.  I just joined this morning, so I guess I get next month to start.  If you keep a piece of waxed paper folded up in your makeup bag or box you can unfold it, set your shimmer on it and then open it.  It catches the mess.  Or if you are frugal you can pour the extra back in.

    Thanks for sharing your goodies with the world.  

    • Hey there!

      I hope you really love your bags like I do, it’s worth every penny and more!

  • Melissa Q.

    Ya i feel like there are better beauty bags out there for the same price. plus i dont really like the fragrances. great review though! i read it on http://www.subscriptionboxes.com/the-look-bag/ and decided to look for a different beauty bag. Thanks!

    • Hi Melissa-
      there are a lot of good sample services out there, I am surprised you didn’t like The Look Bag! Which service do you like more?
