Beauty Surprises

So as I told you a while ago, at Beauty Ticket you can get a "mystery bag" for $15, and since I love surprises I'd figure I'd order one and see what I got. I definitely was not disappointed.

I got:

Two little eye shadows from (I think) Joey New York, one was a very wearable light brown, the other a creamy gold color.

A Stila Bronzer compact (which is nice, bronzer is just one of those things that I didn't want to buy because I don't see the use of it. Now I'll get the chance to play around with this one and see if I like it)

A Bourjois lipstick in Beige Fievreux. I tried it on and while it definitely isn't a runway caliber nude lip, its does give a nice sheen and dulls down my lipcolor a bit.

Another Bourjois lipstick in Violet Cheri. This one is gorgeous, I've been looking for a shade like this for a while. I'm not sure about the staying power yet, but it is an absolutely beautiful burgundy/wine colored lipstick. It brings out my inner vampire :)

A Mac pencil in BBQ, although it says lip pencil on it, I'm definitely going to just use this as a brown eye pencil. It'll be a nice addition to my Maybelline brown eye pencils that have been used down to little stubs.

A Smashbox eyeshadow stick in Showcase. It's a nice highlighter, a kind of creamy white, again lovely (although I'm a little biased. I love Smashbox for basic quality makeup).

So even though there were a few duds (I'm not even going to talk about the awkward chapstick/lipstick sample I got. I didn't know what to do with that one.), just the highlighter, burgundy lipstick, and mac eye pencil made this grab bag worth it (mac eye pencils alone are $16!!).

So was it worth $15? Definitely

Would I order another? Hell yes!

Ooh, j'adore mystery bags! I really want to buy this - if only for the ability to experiment with a few products I wouldn't normally buy. You got lucky with your swag; I can see why you'd want to buy another! :)
