I ordered the HauteLook Summer Beauty Bag on 7/12, and received it today, 7/25. It took about two weeks for the order to arrive, but it's pretty normal for HauteLook. I was very excited about this bag when I saw it on the HauteLook website because it contained a full sized Lorac mascara ($23 retail), NYX Round Lipstick($4 retail), Mirenesse Lip Bomb ($35 retail) and some small sample sized things including an Urban Decay Lip Pencil, and L'Occitane Shea Hand Cream.

However, I was just a little bit disappointed when it arrived. My Miracle 10 AHA Cream wasn't sealed properly and leaked. It was something that I was looking forward to, but thankfully, everything else was usable and in good condition. I messaged customer service, and although they were not able to replace the cream for me, they offered me a $10 refund and a $10 HauteLook credit, which isn't bad!

I spent $27.55 on the bag, including the shipping, but after the refund and the HauteLook credit, I would have spent $7.55. Lets see if the contents of the bag is worth the potential $27.55.

The bag was most definitely worth it for the $27.55 price tag, and even more worth it for $7.55.

Out of the entire bag, the thing that I didn't like the most, other than the cream that spilled, was the Crown brushes. The largest brush had very stiff, spiky bristles and did not have a good texture. The set felt very cheap and low quality. If all Crown Brushes are like this, I would definitely not purchase them, I can confidently say that my black professional elf brushes are much, much better.
