I’ve been very candid about my love for subscription boxes over the years. Of course, every obsession starts somewhere and mine came to fruition with “The Fab Bag”. It’s been more than three years since I ordered my first fab bag and the journey so far has been.. well.. “Fab.”
This month, I received a pretty coral pouch with 4 products and a few coupons:
Sugar Matte as Hell Crayon:
I had the option of choosing lipstick from the newly launched Sugar Lipsticks – It’s a Pout Time Vivid and Matte as Hell Crayon. I chose Coraline Jones from the Matte as Hell Crayon range, which is supposed to be a coral-orange shade. I’ve recently developed a fetish for the colour orange, hence the choice. It’s a creamy matte and quite pigmented as well, but I was hoping for a smidge more of orange hue. (Price – ₹799)
Kronokare – Hydrate the Hair Shampoo:
The ‘Mediterranean Citrus’ shampoo comes to us from the ‘Hydrating’ range. The Kronokare cosmetics are sulphate/paraben free, and this mild shampoo is formulated for daily use to clean and hydrate the hair. It leaves behind a subtle yet pleasant citrus fragrance post-wash. (Price – ₹165 for 55 ml)
Just Herbs – Herb Enriched Skin Tint:
I find this product to be an alternative for BB cream or tinted moisturiser. In case you have dry skin you might need to moisturise before applying this. It is paraben free, and formulated with mineral oil along with sun protection. I’m not into skin tints, but this seems like a good choice for the occasions when you don’t wish to smother your face with layers of products. (Price – ₹385 for 15 grams)
Tvakh – Fruit Enzyme Alcohol Free Toner:
This toner contains fruit extracts and is supposed to be a multi tasking product that cleans, tones, exfoliates, and reduces the pore size with optimum hydration. You get a very subtle whiff of fruity fragrance as you dab some of it on a cotton pad prior to application. Also, it is suitable for all skin types. (Price – ₹160 for 50 ml)
The products are quite good but irrelevant for a bag being touted ‘Colour Drama’. I was expecting products that showcase colours such as lipsticks, eye shadows, nail lacquer, blush, etc. Instead, all I get is one lipstick and a bag that lacks any sort of vibrant character itself.
Overall though, you’re getting a bag priced at ₹599 that contains products worth ₹1509, of which one is a full-size product. That’s not a bad deal, considering the products are of good quality and worth the subscription price.
Diva’s ⭐ Rating: 3.5/5 (I considered a 4, but the bag just doesn’t live up to it’s title.)
