July Look Bag


I was sent an emailing saying the company was no longer going to offer their monthly subscriptions and we would be refunded and not receive a July bag.  I haven't received a refund but I did receive a July bag. I'm guessing this is the last one I'll receive and hopefully refunds will be processed by the end of the month.  

The Look Bag. Yes this is another new monthly subscription for me.  I can't help myself, I love getting packages in the mail!  The Look Bag is $10 a month shipping included.  They also have a yearly option for $110 which brings the price down to $9.16 a month.  I was charged tax on my subscription but that may be because I'm in California.  They promise to send 4-5 deluxe to full size samples each month.  

The Good:

Price: $10 a month.  This is a good starting point for newbies or if you don't want to spend a lot on a monthly subscription.  

Discount: You get 20% off full size products from the store once you join. 

Need a gift: You can send a 3, 6 or 12 month gift subscription to someone

The not so good:

Availability: The offer a 20% discount on a full size purchase BUT I looked up all of the brands they send me on their website and they had either been discontinued or they didn't carry it. 

Skip: There is no option to skip the month.

Contents of bag.  Full size price and size listed in parenthesis.  

Full Size Korres Mango Butter Lipstick in color #24. value $18.00

.08 Ultraflesh Gold Standard Mascara. value = $7.88 (.27 oz. $26.00) 

1ml. Betsey Johnson Perfume. value = $1.53 (1oz. $45.00) - didn't have a real overpowering smell.  kind of fruity.  I wonder if you can even still get this though since Betsey Johnson declared bankruptcy

.24 oz. Bremenn Research Labs Miracle Cream (for the face). value = $9.07 (1.3oz. $49.00) 

"An Upcoming Trend" - each month we take to the beauty trenches and see what's upcoming trends out Look Bag subscribers just have to try out.  they sent 2 small bottle of nail polish one in blue and one in pink. value = $1.00/ea

The value of this bag is $38.48.  I'm excited to try the mascara.  I'm beginning to acquire quite a few lipsticks so I'm on the fence about this one.  I do like the color and mango butter sounds interesting.  The nail polish seems cheap to me because it doesn't say who made them.  Almost like something you would find at the dollar store.  

Verdict: This is the last bag which is ok by me.  The value is great but the products are just ok. 

**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for The Look Bag.  I purchase these subscriptions myself.
