Fab Bag July 2014

Have you used this product? Please Rate it in stars above

Hi everyone, how are you all this evening?
I just got my monthly bag of goodies from my beauty subscription the Fab Bag. Usually I receive it quite early but I don’t know, it arrived a little late this time. I am going to take you through everything that I got in this Fab Bag July 2014

fab bag july 2014

I love love love the bag. One, it is purple which happens to be my favourite colour, and two it has this tiny little metallic plate with Fab Bag engraved on it. It makes the fab bag look “fab” 😀 I like how these guys change the pattern and style of bag every month. It just makes it so much more interesting and worth waiting for. I really like the bag this month. Now let us get into the content shall we? It is very very cloudy here, and I had a hard time taking the pictures. I hope you enjoy the snaps 🙂


July fab bag

1. Deborah Milano IL Rosetto Lipstick 809
2. Deborah Milano Lip Liner

The most interesting things first. Well, yes this was the most interesting thing of the lot. I got a lipstick and lipliner duo from Deborah Milano. I do agree that Deborah Milano had won vogue beauty awards in the year 2011, I do not see a point in sending me a purple lipstick shade. I mean no where in my preference questionnaire did I mention that I am someone who would try out such colours. If this is the only near luxury sample they were going to put in my bag, at least they could have included a proper shade. I do not know how much am I going to use it. May be one day we celebrate halloween in India, I shall be able to match it with my costume. Or may be I will end up giving it to someone who likes to wear such bold shades. I am not happy with the lipstick shade.
The lipliner is again very dark mauvy plum shade which I am not sure I will be wearing because I am usually a fan of soft corally colours like peaches and pinks.

3. Biobloom Hair Strengthening Oil and Cleanser Kit

This made me laugh! I mean I just got two full sized Hair Strengthening kits from Biobloom and I was not expecting them in my Fab Bag. Anyhoo, I think I am going to use this. The cleanser bottle is kind of leaking making everything go chip chip around it, but thats okay. I do not want to go through all the lengthy procedure of returning this tiny bottle and getting a new one. I am okay with this one.

4. Votre Day Moisturizing Gel with SPF 35

This is the only decent product which is a part of my fab bag. I am not a big fab of Votre but again, I do not mind it either. I think I am going to use this, and see how this works out for me. Not much thoughts on this one.

5. Vivel Cell Renew Deep Smoothing Body Lotion

This was a part of free samples which they have decided to send every month in the box. I did get an email in this regard asking me if I would like to continue getting the additional free samples in my bag. If not, there was an option to opt out and they won’t send the additional samples. I thought it is alright to get such samples because I know I would never buy this, but when it comes to me in the bag, I might want to give this a try.

Overall I am not very pleased with the contents of the bag this time. They need to include better brands in the future bags. A lot of my friends have stopped subscribing to them, but I am still keeping my hopes alive. Lets hope they send me something nice in some bag some month. I would love to know your thoughts on this. Please leave your comments below and tell me if you were happy with the contents or what changes would you like to see in the fab bag in future.

    this is just sad….not even one product which can make you go “omg”! and vivel?? I dont have words even if it was a free sample!

      Exactly how I feel. I wish the lipstick was in a different shade.

    What a purple lipstick and vivel lotion? Thank god i didn’t subscribed to them yet.. 🙁

    • Ashu July 27, 2014, 2:54 pm

      haha, its alright, lets hope they send us something better next time 😀

    This was my first fabbag and seriously disappointed !.. A vivel bottle (not even of palm size + a perfect zero moisturization).. A eyeshadow box.. a curler cream and the gel moisturizer (only ‘hope’ product)..

    I guess one need to be a blogger to receive premium products (like lipstick and liner)..

    • Ashu July 27, 2014, 2:57 pm

      They used to have better samples in the past, trust me. I guess and really hope this improves in the coming months. And sweety, its not about being a bblogger, it hardly affects the contents of the bag I feel. Though I got the lipstick, it is hardly of any use to me, I might end up giving it to someone.
      Don’t worry, may be give it another shot, they might have some good things for us in the next bag. 🙂

    • Ashu July 27, 2014, 6:26 pm

      I am super glad you like them Krithi 🙂

    The products are disappointing compared to the previous bags but personally, I really liked that orchid lipstick 🙂

    • Ashu July 27, 2014, 6:27 pm

      haha, yes. I really hope they put in some good stuff next time onwards 😀

    that purple lipstick is sad 🙁 I’ve received better products this month compared to last 2 months and i was loosing hope and would not have renewed but let’s see.. 🙂 Despite mentioning in questionnaire that i’m more of an eye-makeup girl they have never send me any eye-makeup product before..first time in this month i have received eye-makeup products. so i’m quite happy with my bag but yeah brands are not top-class in this month too 🙁

  • sindhu July 28, 2014, 1:29 pm

    there is no customization at all in fab bag… i am also the one who stopped subscribing 🙂

    Even I got a scary shade of purple in my fabbag this month. 🙁 I feel really sad about the shade of lipstick – Im planning to use it as a chapstick at night.
