This is the annual “fukubukuro/ lucky bag” that Beautylish puts out at the end of the year. This year, Beautylish offered two options: the “regular bag” and the “XL.” I chose the regular.
With $75, you can snag $150+ worth of products, all secret!
This gorgeous fukubukuro-themed paper. I like how starting from 2016, Beautylish started investing in their wrapping paper.
I save them for later uses 😀
Everything came individually wrapped in plenty of black paper (so nothing gets banged around), but for the sake of this review, I unwrapped everything before I got busy snapping pics.
Nothing was smashed in transit. Everything powder came in tact.
Here’s the list of what I received, and its total value:
- Bioderma 100ml – $6.90
- It Cosmetics Confidence In a Cream – $48
- Wayne Goss 02 Brush – $35
- ABH Modern Renaissance Palette – $42
- Becca Moonstone – $38
- Mini Z Palette Leopard – $14.99
Total Value: $184.89
This was such a steal for $75, considering how these were all products I was alway curious about but never bought. (With the exception of Bioderma. But that’s a staple I can never have enough of)
If you’re the type of person who enjoys the “unknown/hit-and-miss” factor (what we Koreans call bok-bul-bok), you will love the Lucky Bag. Plus, you might discover new colors/products you love that you’d have never bought on your own.
But if you’d rather not risk blowing $75 on products you might not even like (regardless of how big a return they might be value-wise), this will be a pass.
Lucky Bag 2015 was such a huge miss for me (with me unable to use 70% of what I got!), but 2016 and 2017 was pretty great. 2017 was my best year so far, so this seems to be getting better than worse, at least for me.
Immediately got busy with my old UD Ammo Palette. (Gauged two shadows in the process, me clumsy hands did) Much less cluttering.
That leopard pattern is so cute.
The 2017 Lucky Bag is sold out, but you can always get on the list for the 2018.
