Have you ever encountered a situation, wherein a single view was interpreted in ten different ways by the people around you? 🤔
Is that what I heard?
Well, bygone are those days when we were kids and things were scaled only on the basis of two colors: Black and White. And thanks to those people who always denoted Black with Evil and White with Serenity, our vision remained deceived until we reached quarter-life crises (if that concept even exists).
Talking about quarter-life crises, I don’t know if it’s only me or a lot of people feel that their mind is preoccupied with so much crap. Ironically, the problem lies in the fact that I wanna take hold of how things flow into my life.
So what is it that I do to keep the reins of my over-working brain leashed? Shopping or pampering myself!! [UNEXPECTED, RIGHT?]😆😆 Well, who said both of these don't work well to enlighten your gloomy mood? This is one of the reasons why I am a long term subscriber of Fab Bag. Sometimes, surprising yourself by gifting a moment to think about things that you like doesn't harm anyone. This subscription bag actually made my vanity huge in the initial days when I was a student and I started blogging here.
Let's see what all I received this month in the Eye Got This Edition March Fab Bag. 😍
Sometimes, the pouches would completely amaze you because even though they have a fixed shape, they are customized based on the festivities or different themes. This time, I genuinely loved the pouch! 💖 It is white/cream in color with one side having a red pouted girl who is winking towards you and the other side says: "Eye Got This". As far as my interpretation skills suggest, the pouch literally says "Hey Girl, I Got This in My Fab Bag This Time". But it also plays on the word "Eye" because we've got two eye makeup products. In short, you're sorted, girl! Let the EYE game begin! 😉
MAKEUP SELECTION PROCESS:
A lot happened this time before the team of Fab Bag managed to deliver their subscription boxes across the country. Initially, the crew had decided that they will provide 2 Makeup & 2 Beauty Essentials worth over INR 3,500. This curation was supposed to include a natural body mist. However, on account of the quality issues, it was replaced with a Multani Mitti Lotion. Therefore, an email was sent from their end, wherein they mentioned that they are committed to offering the highest quality service to their subscribers. They spent the last few days sourcing a product and to compensate for the same, a bonus product was included. Please note that it will be completely random and everyone would receive a different product. Based on this move, I genuinely appreciate their efforts. 👍PRODUCTS INSIDE MARCH FAB BAG:
Full Size: Rs. 1,475/-
Bodyography Cream Shadow has to be the star product of the ‘Eye Got This’ Fab Bag March Edition. Although when I unboxed my courier, the product was covered in glitter flex and I assumed the packaging is broken from somewhere. That wasn’t the case but still I had to clean up the product, which was slightly disappointing. However, when I rubbed my finger on the eyeshadow, I was stunned for a moment at the creaminess of the product. The eyeshadow literally glides onto the skin like butter and it has a nice opacity. The shade ‘Glimmer’ has bronzy, rose gold and Champaign shade together. I’m really looking forward to using it not only as an eyeshadow but also as a highlighter. 😍
Nirvaana Purifying Facial Serum
Full Size: Rs. 1,399/-
‘Nirvaana’ was a new brand for me until we received their soap a few months ago in the Fab Bag. Their Purifying Facial Serum contains 100% pure and natural essential oils. The ingredients stated onto the packaging are Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Vitamin E, Castor Oil, Olive Oil, Papaya Extracts, Cinnamon Oil and Orange Oil. I personally feel this isn’t really a serum; it’s actually a facial oil that can be applied at the night time for acquiring a hydrated and glowy skin. I did apply it once and it made my skin feel soft. 😊
St. D’vence Multani Mitti Lotion
40 ML: Rs. 149/-
Just like Nirvaana Purifying Facial Serum, even the St. D’vence Multani Mitti Lotion is also not named aptly. When I read the packaging, I realized it’s actually a ready to use face pack and not a lotion. The product contains Orange Peel, Haldi, Liquorice, Manjistha, Kesar and Rose Water as the key ingredients. It is free from PEG and PG, Mineral Oil, Phthalates and Parabens. It makes the skin brightened and helps in removing excess oil. Also, the cooling sensation that it provides is also worth mentioning.
Half N’ Half Non-Transfer Hi-Tech Waterproof Eyeliner Pen
Full Size: Rs. 195/-
I’m not sure if it’s only me or everyone also feels that though sketch pen eyeliners are really easy to use, they do dry out real quick. For preventing the same, I did learn a hack that you always place the product upside down to ensure that its tip remains drenched with ink as and when you wing out your liner. I have tried one from the brand Half N’ Half cosmetics once but it’s not really something that you’d wanna wear on a special occasion. The reason being: the product isn’t water-proof and it does not work that well over eyeshadow. It's usable only on an everyday basis to college or work.
Everyone is supposed to receive a different bonus product. I got the Mond’sub 3 in 1 Mask which I’d be using as soon as I take the pictures for this blog post. 😂😂
Total Worth of the Products: More than INR 3,218
Total Savings: INR 2,619 approximately
😍 Quirky subscription pouch
😍 Happy me because we have a bonus product!
😍 Most of the products are full-sized and expensive!
😍 Inclusion of a makeup product from an International brand - Bodyography.
😯 Although the product isn’t really broken, the cream eyeshadow that I received was submerged in its own glitter.
TGL’s Final Verdict:
Overall, I’m really happy with this month’s curation and the pouch. I am excited to try out all the products so that I can provide you in-depth review of each product separately. And I loved the fact that we had a makeup item from an International brand.
I hope this blog post was beneficial for you.
