PUR Cosmetics Mystery Bag

Hey guys!

Happy last day of January! Holiday is over and winter session of school is done. I’m able to start testing and reviewing products once again.

I originally wanted to do my usual monthly makeup subscription posts. I haven’t reviewed what I received from Ipsy & Sephora for about two months. Stay tuned for those product reviews within the next couple of weeks.

Instead, I decided to write about a mystery bag I recently purchased from PUR. PUR is a cruelty-free makeup brand. I never owned any of their products before but I came across their brand on Black Friday when I was shopping at Ulta. I swatched their Eye Polish. The pigmentation was really nice and shimmery.

Last week, I came across a post about their mystery bag. I decided to purchase it to see what kind of products I would get. Surprises are always fun. It was a really good deal. For only $20.41 USD (includes shipping), I got 5 full-size products and a free makeup bag. The website states that the bag contains products that has a total value of $115 USD but it was on sale for $20 USD.

The package came with a sleek makeup bag.

Please keep in mind that the products in every mystery bag will vary slightly but the mystery bag product posting mentioned that it includes two new items released in 2017 and one of their bestselling palettes. 😍

The 5 full-size products I received are below.

  • Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette (Value: $34 USD)
  • Purminerals Ultility Mineral Makeup Brush (Value: $16 USD)
  • On Point Eyeliner Pencil (Value: $19 USD)
  • Cease Crease Eyeshadow Primer (Value: $18 USD)
  • Big Look Mascara (Value: $21 USD)

I just think the price point is really worth the value especially if the mystery bag guarantees a palette. I’m going to review the palette and the eyeliner.

I really love the packaging of the palette. It has rose gold accents and a white marble print. So pretty! I love rose gold.

Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette

The palette comes with 12 shades (8 matte shades and 4 shimmer shades).

When I swatched the shades on the first row, it was not pigmented because of how fair the shades are. It just blends right into my skin. Haha! 😳

However, I do like the pigmentation of the shades on the second and third row of the palette.

The eyeshadows were smooth and easy to blend.

On Point Eyeliner Pencil

The shade that I received is in Heartless, which is the name of their black.

The packaging is really sleek. The tip of a gel pencil eyeliner is typically very thick which makes it difficult to draw a precise line. You can compare gel pencil eyeliner tips with my review on the Make Up Forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil or Japan Visee Super Slim Gel Liner.

On Point Eyeliner Pencil Swatch

To my surprise, the point of the eyeliner is extremely fine. The product is creamy and slides onto the skin smoothly. No need to tug at the eye to draw a winged line. Longwear and waterproof formula.

Did I forget to mention this eyeliner is “self-sharpening?” That’s a pretty unique and neat concept. There’s a sharpener inside the cap of the eyeliner pencil.

I haven’t had a chance to try the eyeshadow primer but I am excited about the product. I’m currently still using the one from Elizabeth Moth. Once I’m done with that, I’ll try the one by PUR.

Thank you for stopping by. Until next time!

P.S. I would love to hear about what you received in your mystery bag. If you also tried other products from PUR, let me know your thoughts about the brand. 😊

  1. So, I got a mystery bag (2 actually) just delivered today. I have never been so disappointed in my life. FIVE my little pony glitter lip glosses and a highlighter pallet. In both. So really I have TEN useless glitter lip glosses and 2 highlighter pallets. Wow.

    1. Hi Amy. I’m so sorry to hear about your experience with the mystery bag. It was honestly my first time purchasing it as well. But since that purchase, I signed up to receive promotional offers via email. I haven’t purchased a second mystery bag to see if I would get something different. Every time the mystery bag would sell out, then I would receive an email saying that they restocked again. Once they sell out once again, they would restock after few weeks. It does seem like you received something different than what I received. I’m assuming the mystery bags will be the same per batch released. You can always gift the second mystery bag to a dear friend. (: Thank you so much for sharing! ❤

      1. I guess I am more disappointed that it wasn’t a variety of products. I can use eyeshadow and eyeliner, but I never wear lip gloss, especially extremely glittery lip gloss. I’ve definitely outgrown the glitter stage. Hopefully this will help someone who is considering purchasing a bag in the future! 🙂
