That's really disappointing considering last year a bunch of people got full size products, I was at least expecting delux samples larger than 0.1 oz :/ I'm getting my bag Thursday, now I'm wishing I just got another itkit

Yeah, I was surprised that the items were lame imo.  I'm glad that I didn't get those samples...

I didn't end up grabbing one.

I think the Murad radiance peel could be cool though.

This makes me feel better about not placing an order to get one!  Between the $25 free shipping and the grab bag I have had to restrain my itchy fingers!  I have an order coming on Thursday with one of the Little Lux makeup bag things.  But now I hav my VIB coupon.....Curses!

I just received mine and the good news is that there were more than six samples...the bad news is that half of them were what I consider to be a waste. I received about 3 Sephora Brand samples (nothing deluxe) -which might be fine if it were something like a blush or an eyeshadow, but two of them were foundation samples that didn't match my skin tone anyways...not to mention that I was under the impression that the sample bag was going to be filled with six amazing deluxe samples. I also got a tiny regular sample of the Too Faced Shadow Insurance...I mean, come on! Splurge on at least a deluxe sample of that! 

There were some good ones however:
1. One pot (SO tiny though...about 2-3 uses worth of product) of a L'occitane facial moisturizer
2. A decent sized sample of the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal mask. Smells terrible, but it seemed like it cleaned out my pores. 
3. a VERY tiny bottle (not even like the usual deluxe fragrance samples) of Chloe perfume. 

SUPER disappointed. None of the brands I saw advertised on the cover of the ad like Nars or Benefit were included.

I think it's kind of cool that each bag is different!

 

I was able to grab some L'occitane samples earlier this year and really loved what they have to offer! Hopefully, you got a great product!

Yes!  I place an order and then am like "Ack, they have something new!  I must order!"  Trying to decide what to use my VIB coupon on myself or presents for others....Cinderella palette is calling my name!

Have you tried any Tarina Tarantino products?  Restocked as of this morning!  Her blushes and eyeshadows are really wonderful.

I'm thinking about getting the Boscia pink peppermint blotting linens and I think I might try some Soap & Glory products (I have never tried them but have read great reviews). I'm also considering grabbing the UD eyeshadow in Mushroom and maybe one if their eyeliner pencils (I don't know which color yet). I'm not going to order all of that stuff, but it's what I have narrowed it down to!

I have mushroom on my list too! I don't recommend the hand cream from soap & glory though, it's got a very synthetic plasticy smell, in my opinion.

post #17 of 46

Mine just came.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 I got a deluxe sample of Nars tinted moisturizer, Murad radiance peel, Sephora outrageous volume mascara. One time use cards of sephora radiance foundation (x2) and sephora primer packet.

 

I was excited I got Nars but it's way to light for me (alaska). Sad panda.

 

 

I have another coming. Hope it's better.

That's not bad but that sucks about the Alaska thing.  Luckily when I got my sample from that company they had it in the exact shade of my complexion.

Thanks for the heads up about the hand cream! I was actually checking out the products Butter Yourself and The Righteous Butter.

There is hope for the mystery bags! I got deluxe samples of Deslick by urban decay, a murad facial peel, and an under eye illuminator - I forgot the brand right now..

It's good they don't all seem crappy, but the deslick was also in ITKIT #3... if that's the case, I'd rather take a chance at getting another ITKIT and just taking the substitutions instead of possibly setting myself up for a bad bag ):

 

Well also I heard the mystery bag is over so I'd have to get an ITKIT lol....

That's good to hear.  I'm glad that there are various types of these mystery bags compared to the one I posted a few days ago :)

post #30 of 46

Seeing all the variations makes me want to try one of the Mystery Bags! It's such a gamble though!!! ><
