So, I just received my most recent order from Urban Decay, and since it included the Mystery Travel Bag, I thought I’d show everyone what’s in it! The mystery bag was pretty good, but I had some issues with this order, which is sad because I’m an enormous UD fangirl.
The bag itself is clear and made of thick plastic and will join the pile of other makeup bags I’ve gotten free with purchases that I never, ever have a use for. I received travel sizes of All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray and Supercurl Curling Mascara, a mini 24/7 Shadow Pencil in Rehab, a full size Lip Junkie lip gloss in Naked, and of course the ubiquitous sample card of primer potion.
The best thing about this for me is the lip gloss – not because it’s full-sized, but because it confirms my suspicion that I need to immediately buy every lip color UD makes in the shade Naked. It’s perfect for me!
The bag cost $16 and supposedly includes over $45 of Urban Decay products. I can’t speak to that because pricing on travel/sample sizes is always a little shady, no matter the brand, but this is a good buy specifically for the lipgloss I received, which sells for more than the cost of the bag.
Also included in the box I received were a card with a UD logo sticker and a $5 coupon for my next purchase (not sure if that’s because I bought the travel bag or what?), and my mystery Early Exclusive Sample. Well, sort of. Neither of these things was actually included in my package. I received a card/wrapper thingy for Naked Skin Beauty Balm, which Iwas SO EXCITED to try…but there was nothing inside the card. Furthermore, the card with the coupon on it has a space for “your unique code,” BUT THERE IS NO CODE. WTF? I’m going to contact UD about it, but I really doubt anything will come of it since I’ve had issues in the past with their customer service. Irritating, since I LOVE both their Naked foundation and their tinted moisturizer, and since I would TOTALLY use the code.
*UPDATE*: I emailed UD and got the credit added to my account, and she said she’d try to find another sample for me. So, pretty good!
*UPDATE 2*: I just received a package from UD containing a replacement for my sample that was missing. Faith in UD CS is restored! Really awesome, I wasn’t expecting this at all.
I also got the two clearance shades of Surreal Skin Creamy Concealer, Dream and Hallucination, which are both EXTRAORDINARILY yellow. Seriously. YELLOW YELLOW YELLOW.
Oh, one more thing I wanted to mention – it looks like UD has lowered their free shipping threshold for the holiday season. You now get free shipping at $35 instead of $50.
