Happy Independence day to all my fellow INDIANS!
SO after my on and off hiatus, which seems to be happening more often than not, I decided that we should just go ahead and post something today – FABBAG un-boxing has been waiting very patiently on my table – I just am not very good with time management these days – more of a procrastination I would say – Everything can just wait 😉 But I guess being a mommy, the only break you can get is by staying away from blogging – but not the kids 😛 So my kids decided I should get back to work, because my son wanted to play with the FABBAG box, so he insisted I empty the contents and hand it over to him..
The Theme: The Flawless and Fierce August Fab Bag – All about skin care and looking your absolute best. The bag is filled with goodies that will cater only to your skin – to make it flawless and fierce – helping to put your best game forward!
The Bag: Is a beautiful clutch in Black! There were two colours this time – brown and black and I am glad that I got Black because it happens to be my most favourite colour. The bag is an ideal sized clutch so I would definitely think of taking this out- now that I am done with diaper bags – all these beautiful clutches are beautiful accessories that I can now think of taking around! The material is gorgeous and there is a press button which closes the bag securely, I just wish there was a chain for us to hang it from our shoulders! But a beauty nevertheless!
The Products : The bag is filled with all FULL SIZED goodies! YAY!! Getting four full sized products amounting to 1200 is amazing! Here are all the things I got in this August Fab Bag!
1. Bella Voste Premium Lipstick – Mocha Spice (Full Size – INR 449)
I am currently obsessing with lipsticks – so I have decided I don’t want more – then comes a mail from FAB BAG asking me to choose a lipstick – 😛 and I am sold! Bella Voste is a new launch and there were plenty of options available for me to choose from – I preferred my usual shade – a beautiful cinnamon brown, which by the way is very creamy and moisturizing. I cannot comment much about the lasting power, as the lipstick came off once I drank tea, but yes, it doesn’t feel very heavy on your lips and is a Beautiful colour!
2. Mond’sub Pearl Revitalizing & Brightening 3D Hanging Ears Neck and Facial Masks ( Full size: 200)
I tried this the moment I got this. Although I am more of a regular masking person, over a sheet masker ; I loved the glow I got once I used this, followed by the essence that comes in the mask . I love the fact that this covers the neck too- and trust me, I loved how my skin felt post usage. A full review will soon be up on the blog – so you might want to stay tuned for some more info on Mond’sub facemasks!
3. Opulence SUGAR Scrub (Full size – INR 500)
This scrub is filled with all the goodness that you can give to your skin! I am loving the ingredient list as it is power packed with all skin friendly ingredients that can help you skin a great deal. I still haven’t had a chance to open and use this, but a review will follow once I get a chance – the packaging is simple yet chic!
4. Makeup Revolution The Matte Effect Concealer Stick – MC11 (Full Size : INR 550/-)
If you ask me, we need all the concealers we can have – there sometimes is so much correction to do, sometimes so much pop up your makeup can use – this beauty by Makeup revolution is a tad bit darker for my skin, but can do good for my under eyes – not that I need lot of coverage there, but still can dab on a bit and make my skin perfect.
Overall Verdict : There are new additions made to this monthly bag every month, we get to try out new things from lesser known brands or known brands – things we want to try, things we are skeptical to try, yet we try because we want to know what works for us and what does not. I was not a big fan of change, especially to my skin care routine, but since I subscribed to FAB BAG, I have tried a lot of products, and also now am more comfortable trying new things out, which could work for my skin. I am in love with Fab Bag and I am glad that we get all the opportunities to find new things each month!
