What could be better than a beauty box?
Well, how about a Limited Edition beauty bag of epic proportions – specifically five full-sized beauty offerings for only a fraction of their retail value?
Let me just say that more than a few of us in the local beauty community were pretty hyped up recently by the promise of a beauty bag of which there were only 35 (gasp!) units available. Only 35! But how, why, golly and oh-gosh! Only 35!
If there is anything that makes a woman want something more it is the notion of limited availability. By rule, the less there is of something the more we want it. That’s human nature. We covet rarity. Like an eligible bachelor. Only one of him but many of us makes him all the more eligible.
Now, MiMi’s Bag of Love subscriptions usually do a roaring trade anyway but on this day the anticipation for Bag of Love’s super-limited edition mystery bag was simply off the charts!
We had girls on trains and girls in cars and girls at home all drawing bated breath in competitive unison.
Some were tapping their feet, others were tapping their fingers, some of us – like yours truly – were tapping everything at once but Mi Mi was off editing the reveal photo for this single-brand epic release…and taking her own pretty time with it too but I forgive her; this beauty bag is pretty awesome.
And here she is! The bag that is.
Yes, yours truly braved the surreal experience and RM199.90 later this was mine.
For the time being she holds the record for being the most expensive beauty bag (box) to hit our market but when you think of how she is filled to the overflow with five full-sized items then the maths makes sense. The final discount works out to be about 60% off the retail prices and French-made Nuxe in any country is a relatively costly affair and this is certainly a good buy in my books. Surely, this is saving me money!
But both you and I know I’d starve for the right beauty box if it came to that.
Isn’t she beautiful? Virginal-white and quilted. Quilting is to luxury what feathers are to birds. Just ask Chanel.
And here she is again – I prepped her up for another shoot. This time, my amateur Nuxe tribute to Warhol.
I present to you the contents of the Bag of Love X Nuxe Special Edition…
Or Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water, if you like, but everything does sound better in French, don’t you think?
Next up is the Refreshing Moisturising Mist.
A rose-scented mist that you spray over makeup to keep the skin hydrated and the face dewy.
I believe this is the french version of the Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist.
The Nuxe Ultra-Comfortable Body Cream.
A 24-Hour Soothing and Rehydrating Fresh Mask.
I had no idea ‘Creme Fraiche’ was a term in beauty but the French do have a way with words and now I have lashings of glorious cream dazzling in my head from this.
Finally, I introduce the champagne diva of the Nuxe collection and one of the most well-known and loved products in the Nuxe fold.
A full-sized Anniversary Edition of the Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil that looks like liquid gold.
And there we have it.
RM544 worth of Nuxe goodies for only RM199.90.
Admittedly, in the frenzy of the moment all those ‘nines’ had my eyes glazing over proving that online banking and frenzied internet shopping are not compatible bedfellows. I kept having to check my eyes on this one and still got it wrong. Duh! I am no Math Girl but fate prevailed and this was mine, mine and all mine!
Anyway, a record-breaking beauty bag if there ever was one and another successful Limited Edition curation from Bag of Love. I hope to review the products individually for you as I go through the very scientific process of smothering these elixirs all over my face in the near future.
Bag of Love never ceases to surprise her subscribers and her goodies run the gamut of the very affordable to ultra-premium outings like this one. And of course, part of the fun is fighting off the hordes for them.
