XoxoEmmy: A Beauty and Lifestyle Site

Friday, March 8, 2013

If you head over to Beauty.com, you can add to your cart the 'Romy', a cobalt beauty case loaded with beauty samples for any purchase of $100 or more, while supplies last.

What the site shows you will get:

Now this is what I got:

In the advertisement, the bag's material resembles shiny leather, but its all just plastic looking. The design is there, its just not as nice as the picture. The logo is covered with film which has to remove (which I forgot to do before I took this picture).

the samples


I initially only had $70 in my cart but the free The New Black Full-size nail polish was tempting me. Rarely do companies give free nail polishes away, and a full size at that. I ended up not getting the blue shade that was advertise but the purple one from the collection.

All in all, the samples are:
  • Shaveworks® The Cool Fix™ Targeted Gel Lotion
  • Stila® Stay All Day® 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm
  • Go Smile® Touch Up Smile Perfecting Ampoules
  • Nuxe® Masque Crème Fraiche de Beauté 24H Soothing & Rehydrating Fresh Mask
  • ARCONA® Hydrating Serum, Replenish AM/PM
  • Joanna Vargas Skincare Daily Serum
  • Caudalie Premium Cru The Ultimate Anti-Ageing Cream
  • PHYTO® Phytopolléine Scalp Stimulant Universal Elixir
  • Murad® Acne Clarifying Cleanser
  • Peter Thomas Roth® Mega-Rich Body Wash
  • H20 Plus™ Targeted Care Hand and Nail Cream
  • The New Black Full-Size Nail Polish in one of the colors from the Jewel Heist Collection
  • bareMinerals® Stroke of Light™ Eye Brightener in Luminous 4
  • Beauty.com® $10 Gift Card (But its more like a coupon since its $10 off $50 code)
If you compare my samples to the image, you will notice 1 is missing. That's because they substituted jover moisture tint.

Should you get this?

If you are already planning on making a purchase, YES. Especially if you were planning on buying either butter london, urban decay, or any other brand with another company like Sephora. Sephora has a beauty insider program, were $1 equals $1 point. You can get a deluxe sample for 100 points (or $100), but the deluxe sample is ONE item. These are VARIOUS items, including a full size nail polish. There is more stuff here than Sephora's 500 gift points items (which is usually 3 deluxe samples from 1 brand). The bag is great for going on trips (too big for purses, too bulky to carry it around like a purse).


Disclosure: I made a $100 order purchase to receive this bag. It was not given to me for free by Beauty.com
