Giveaway ~ Fall Beauty Envy Bag


Beauty Envy Bag
Are you a beauty sample subscriber? Never heard of the Beauty Envy Bag? That is because it is something new the four of us beauty bloggers decided to put together. The Fall Edition is the inaugural Beauty Envy Bag. This is what a beauty bag of goodies should look like. Full sized items, deluxe samples (not tiny bits of product swiped onto a card), and with a beauty bag so nice you can wear it on a night out. Luxe brands fill this bag. This was a lot of fun for us to put together, choosing items the we have used and love and being able to share them with one of you. This is something we hope to do quarterly, so look out Winter Edition!

Since some of you reading this may not know all of the bloggers involved, we would love to introduce ourselves:

Lakeisha is a nail polish blogger from
Florida. She is obsessed with polish,
fashion, and merging the two together.
She is the blogger behind



Latoya is a beauty blogger from the East
Coast of Canada. While she loves all
things girly, she's also a closet gamer
and is a die-hard Walking Dead fan.
She is the blogger behind

Leticia is a beauty blogger from the
Pacific Northwest. She is a dog lover,
sci fi nerd, handbag collector, and makeup
junkie. She is the blogger behind



Lola is a Midwest blogger with a passion 
for polish, science, and music. She is the 
blogger behind Burb Beauty.





So what will be included in the awesome beauty bag you might ask? First we will look at the full sized items. These are to accompany the Calvin Klein red nylon wristlet with red leather trim. You can click through each one to read the reviews:
And here are the deluxe samples that are also included with bag as extras:
  • Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Illuminating Serum
  • Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance
  • Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Sparkling
  • Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Mascara
  • Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover
Details! Here is what you need to know to enter:
  • Must leave a blog comment (just one blog, doesn't have to be all four) letting us know what are your most favorite and least favorite things about beauty bags.
  • Additional entries for following each blog on social media networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
  • Open internationally
  • Must be 18+
  • Giveaway closes on Friday, October 5 at 11:59p EST 
Good luck to everyone!

My least favorite thing is you dont get to chosse your samples

Jasmin B said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I like the suprise but I don't like that sometimes you don't get what you are promised.

Marta Mosqueda said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I enjoy that the contents are a surprise each time. I don't enjoy the tiny samples, they should definitely be bigger!

Tina T. said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

My favorites from the bag are all the Zoya nail polishes! I love that brand. I don't really have a dislike but I guess my least favorite is the make up for ever aqua liner just because I don't know if I can pull that off.

Red Rogue said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Most favourite would be the element of surprise, kind of like opening a Christmas stocking... my least favourite would be not getting enough variety.

mdiaana said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

It's the effect of surprise :)

Zoe x said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love ad hate that I don't know what is coming.

Miss Laya said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I like it, that I don't know what I'm getting. It's like unpacking gifts on Christmas Eve. I don't like it, when they pack in about 5 samples and two of them are mini sized perfume samples. I can get these samples for free at my perfume reseller, I don't need to pay 10 dollar for these. I also hate these little sachets I can find in magazines, when I have paid for the box/bag.

What an awesome idea and lovely giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

MelodyJ said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I like the variety of products in the bag. I don't like the fact that not every or maybe any product will work for me.

Alisha Lampley said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

LaKeisha this looks awesome! My least favorite thing about beauty bags would be the mascara. My eyelashes are SUPER curly and I don't even bother with using it sometimes since it will make like 3 of the lashes go haywire. LOL The lengthening ones are the worst. And my favorite thing about beauty bags are trying out things at a big discount before you fork over money for something that you don't like.

Amanda said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I always like the surprise of these bags, getting something you wouldn't normally pick up yourself.


I typically dislike skincare items since I have super sensitive skin and can't often use them.

jemele said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

i really enjoy getting personalized products and a full-size here and there! what i enjoy least would probably be the element of surprise... i love to know what's coming so i can plan what to use first :)

Tintin said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I always love the random stuff in the bag but sometimes I don't like the tiny samples

AMarie said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

My most favorite thing about beauty bags is receiving full and/or deluxe samples. My least favorite is receiving items that I can't use (for curly hair, darker skin, etc.)

Rebecca Cook said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Ooo a new beauty bag! Awesome! I really dislike the sample sizes that are one time use. Its hard to know if I really like something in one use. This beauty bag looks freaking awesome.

Tammy said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love the surprise factor and the chance to try new things, but after a while I end up with a lot of stuff. Ive cancelled all the boxes and bags Ive subscribed just to take a break.

Patricia Knetzer said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I've never tried a beauty bag before, but I love that it gives you the chance to try something out that you normally wouldn't, or didn't know was out on the market :)

britnirose said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love so much about this. The only downfall is that there's not more of these already! Things I love about beauty bags and boxes is that it's like Christmas year round! I don't like that sometimes you can't control what you get in them.

jessica kisling said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love the surprise of not knowing what's inside but the samples should be bigger. you only get a little tease. lol

Rebecca Russell said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

My favorite and least favorite things are one and the same: the surprise factor. Sometimes it works in your favor and sometimes not so much.

Allyson Garrick said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I like the variety I see in beauty bags, and the fact that it gives me an opportunity to try things I might not otherwise. I like that it's a little surprise every month.
I don't like that the color/shade of some products might not work well with my skin, which could make samples unusable. Or if the sample size is barely enough for one use.

Melanie Snyder said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I don't have the money for the subscription ones :b
but, I've gotten a couple of the Target beauty bags and they were awesome. I love trying out new products, so it gave me a chance to do that for free :)

Gnarly Gnails said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

i love polishes in bags! and i rarely like perfumes. i am super picky about perfume so they are almost always wasted on me!

irina said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I like the element of surprise and the fact that I have an opportunity to test brands or products I wouldn't normally buy, but sometimes the products in the bags can be disappointing.

Michelle said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

My favorite things about beauty bags is when they come early and have something I can use inside of it like nail polish is a favorite to have inside.The thing I dislike is bags is a coupon and they say its a gift card but you have to spend over $50-100 dollars to get 10-25 dollars off.That is not a gift card its a coupon.

Brandi said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love Beauty bags, I don't like the teeny tiny samples though. give me enough to use a couple of times to get a real feel for the product!!!

Teresa said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love how with some, you get a variety of samples in things you'd never try, however, I do wish that some would let you pick the type of products you received that way you're guaranteed to get something you'd use or wanted to try. Not saying that you would pick what, exactly, it is you want, but a general overview that way your disappointment is kept to a minimum.

Jennifer said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

My favorite thing about this beauty bag is the variety of beauty products. I guess my least favorite thing would be some products are not my favorite color.

Huixiang Ouyang said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

i like being surprised, and trying new things i might not get to try. i don't like that there's a chance of getting something i dislike/already have

GlitterInfatuation Jazz said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Gorgeous polishes! Great idea girls!

Tami L. said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Pshhh, what could I HATE about beauty bags?! Maybe sometimes I end up getting a few things that I unfortunately don't end up using for one reason or another, and I feel bad :( But otherwise I loveee getting new products to try out :))

Kat S. said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I the surprise of not knowing what you are getting but I dont like just getting samples.!

Dragana said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love the nail polishes in the bag but I don't like the tiny samples :)

Stephanie V. said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I have just recently been introduced to beauty bags and boxes (I'm a late bloomer. LOL) I love the "beauty" of beauty boxes...such a great concept. As women we've all had that moment where we've bought something from the store that we were in love with...only to realize we hate it once we try it out. Beauty boxes are a great way to receive great stuff and try it out to see if we like the products. I can't think of anything I don't like about the idea...except the fact that I didn't think about it myself!! LOL Keep up the good work ladies...loving your blogs!! :)

Narmai said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I like how I can be surprised to try some products that I otherwise would not know about or would never think to buy for myself. I'm afraid though, that I would get something that I wouldn't use or wouldn't like, but that I did pay for.

Patricia C said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Girls, you totally understood our drama! My favorite thing about beauty bags, I mean, a few of them is when I noticed there´s a supplier-consumer serious respect. And this we see by the products presented. It also explains what I don´t like: seeing a bunch of uncoordinated things put together to simulate an important volume, and making us feel like lab rats and pigs, instead of fashionable and beauty engaged ladies.

Janelle James said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love getting to try new things(I've found my HG face wash from a beauty box) but I hate samples that are so small you can only use the product once so you can't even really evaluate how well it works.

Frida S said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Most: getting to try new brands that you've never heard of. Least: if you find something you really like and cant get a hold of again.

Jasmine Cox said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

My favourite is all the nail polish, and my least favourite would be the liner as I dont wear a lot of it.

beauty2244 said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love beauty bags as you get to try out new things that you normally wouldn't try, lets you get out of your comfort zone. I don't like that a majority of beauty bags give teeny tiny samples, so you can't tell if you truly like the product or not.

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love that you can try new things but I don't like that you can't pick what you get and sometimes you get things that you would never use, like for me; tan towels
