First Impression: Illamasqua Mystery Box

Greetings!

As many of you wanted to see a post on the Illamasqua Mystery Box, I decided to go ahead and do a First Impression post about it. This box is available on Sephora for $60. It comes with 10 full sized products, including Fable Lipstick and Jo'mina nail varnish. The other 8 products are random. Although you will know that you will get 1 cream blush, one more lipstick, one liquid metal, one cream eyeshadow, two medium pencils, one sheer lip gloss, and one intense lip gloss.

This is such an amazing deal! Although, I was afraid to get it because I already own numerous Illamasqua products and I didn't want to get repeats. I did end up with one repeat, the Enrapture Liquid Metal. I will be giving this away, but more on that later~


Here is my box and what I received in the Mystery Selection.

I was mildly surprised by how much I liked the products I received in the box. I saw plenty of Youtube reviews for this box and some people were really unhappy with it. I, though, really love the cream blush, the lipsticks, the medium pencils, and the lip glosses. The cream eyeshadow is a nice neutral shade and it contrasts nicely with the bright blush and lip colors. 

The product I am the most excited about it the Severe Medium Pencil. The pencils are of superb quality, and I can't believe I had not tried them yet! Best thing is that you can use them for both lips, eyes, and face! Severe will make a gorgeous lip liner and eye liner.

Was this worth the $60? For me, heck yes! $60 for 9 new products for me an one product to give away to you guys? That is a greeeeat deal!
I would recommend this more for people who don't have any or very little Illamasqua products since you won't have the problem of getting doubles of one product like me.
