Fab Bag February: The Love & Makeup Bag Review

The most awaited February Fab Bag is finally here. This might take entire Fab Bag followership down, if I believe the comments on their social media handles and their responses on emails sent by the subscribers.

Fab Bag February The Love & Makeup Bag was supposed to be the lovey dovey bag for the makeup and beauty lovers filled with surprises for the Valentine's Day but turned into a massive nightmare. Turned out that the Fab Bag people sent bags only to the popular or so called niche bloggers for marketing and rest of the subscribers had to wait for the rest of the month and I bet they are still waiting. 

I got my today so you can understand the situation over here. This is my last bag for my subscription and m already having second thoughts over it. 

Well, the rants will keep going. Lets start with the review!!

Fab Bag bag

This month's bag is a cute red bag with crocodile pattern all over it. It looks like the rest of the Fab Bags but I noticed something weird. Fab Bags are getting smaller and smaller with each passing month. 

My Fab Bag February The Love & Makeup Bag  has 5 products and if I believe the description on the card, there are 4 full size products. However, the usual FABPOST is missing in this one. I bet they packed all the bags in hurry and forgot to put a thing or two.

My Take 

I was kinda worried when I saw some bloggers with purple blushes. However, I got lip crayon in fireside which is sort of Maroonish red. This is the worst ever lip crayon I have. I will never pay 1000 bucks for this one. Pigmentation is bad. You will have to apply 3-4 swipes for the right color. Staying power is bad too... transfers a lot. Smell is seriously like crayon. Its like taking those crayons from coloring box and turning it into a lip crayon. Sugar lip crayon was so much better in my December Fab bag.

Kama Ayurveda Pure rose Water

Website claims

 KAMA Ayurveda Pure Rosewater is made from the roses of Kannauj, a region in North India, rich in white soil conductive to roses growth. The Kannauj rose is considered special...it has the same specifications as the Bulgarian rose.The steam water distillation process used to create this wonderful rosewater ensures a high level of hygiene and unmatched purity.Rose water is a natural astringent. It balances and restores skins PH level and helps tighten pores.Rose water is also a good non-alcoholic toner. 

Kama rosewater is a good non-alcoholic refresher that helps remove the residue of the previous cleansing procedures such as removing of makeup. It refines the pores and tones the skin making it ready for moisturizing treatment. It can also be used to damp skin before applying Kama Natural Plant Mask (Lavanya) or Kama Miraculous Beauty Fluid (Kumkumadi).Kama rosewater can also be used as an aftershave. Aftershaves are basically toners, however because most aftershaves are primarily made of alcohol and perfume, they damage the skin by disturbing the recovery of the mantle, which is destroyed by shaving soap and razor blade use.

 Kama Ayurveda Pure rose Water has been repeated in Fab bag so many times, I can't count. But I like using rosewater in my beauty regime so it is fine.

Chamki Nail Polish

I'm crazy about nail paints but this one failed to impress me. If I will pay 150 bucks for a nail polish, I do expect results from it. Love the name, Chudail!

But the finish is not good. You need 3 coats for perfect color. Also the color is bit too shimmery for me. I m not a fan of shimmer polishes. Some girls might like the color. My mother liked it!

Just Herbs Liquorice Shea Lip Butter Balm

Product claims

A smoothening lip balm made from certified organic beeswax, certified organic cold-pressed oils of Avocado, Safflower and Sweet Almond along with ultra moisturizing Shea Butter. Unlike petroleum jelly and other petroleum derived mineral oils, these natural ingredients not only seal in the lips moisture but also impart additional hydration to coarse and parched lips without clogging pores. 

Liquorice root extract helps brighten dull, darkened lips gradually giving them their natural sheen. No mineral oils or petroleum bi-products, Contains certified organic ingredients, Free from petrochemicals, parabens, SLS/SLES PEG/PPG, Genetically modified ingredients(GMO) and other synthetic ingredients.

My Take

I love lip balms. With about 10 lip balms from different brands, I can say I know a thing or two about them. This one claims to be free from any chemicals or synthetic ingredients but it does smell weird. Does not moisturizes well. It didn't last more than 30 minutes on my lips. At 345 bucks, you can get better organic lip products.

Ayorma Fairness & Cell Renew Night Cream

 Product claims

We understand the adverse effects of day-to-day wear and tear on your skin; hence AYORMA engineered a night solution' Dull and tired complexion blooms with brightness and clarity, given the goodness in our rich Fairness and Cell Renew Night Cream that works all night fighting against fine lines and wrinkles. This featherweight emulsion reactivates skin's cell renewal process and diminishes the appearance of dark spots by eliminating dark skin cells. Let the touch of SPA oils relax you while:- Stimulating the formation of new cellsand collagen- Reducing the melanin production

My Take

This one is the only sample size product in the Fab Bag, Product has very high claims but I cannot say much about its result without using it for a week or so. With a single use, I can say that it gets absorbed well in skin and has a matte finish. Fragrance is subtle and light.

I hope and wish that you all will also get your Fab Bags soon. Do share your bags with me and your take on this month's bag.

Lots of Love!!!
