Beautylish Lucky Bag 2020 Review

By Kimberly

My Beautylish Lucky Bag review 2020 is ready. Beautylish 2020 Lucky bags went on sale at 9am today, December 26th, 2019. It always takes a few weeks to a month for the bags to ship. I got my Fedex shipping notification on the 16th. By the 18th, it was delivered. The Beautylish Lucky Bags 2020 have sold out, but the sign up link for Beautylish Lucky Bags 2021 is already up. 

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the Beautylish Lucky Bag

What is a Beautylish Lucky Bag?

The day after Christmas every year Beautylish sells Lucky Bags. Inspired by Fukubukuro, a grab bag of surprises for Japanese New Year, these bags usually have double the value of their cost. As someone who loves subscription boxes and trying new things, I love the idea of mystery bags. It is a gamble that you could win or lose. Anyone can get an “unlucky bag,” but people who are very particular with products should not purchase mystery bags or subscriptions. It is only a good deal if your personal value exceeds the cost of the bag. People who admit they are hard to please will almost surely find the cost exceeds their personal value. Very few bags could actually make them happy, which makes it a poor investment.

How Do I get a Beautylish Lucky Bag?

Putting your name on the Beautylish Lucky Bag 2020 sign-up list yields your best chance. Those who sign up get an email with the link for early access. I got the email with the link to the bags at 9:01am. Bags usually sell out quickly, but the fair to medium bags (the 2019 bag I got) were available for a while last year. No reminder email arrived this year, but I did get one on the 25th last year. Since I did not get a reminder email and my early access email had not arrived by 9am, I used Google to find the link to get in. Thankfully, it worked. The only year I did not get my early access email on time is the first year I scored the Lucky XL bag. Go figure.

I placed the order as quickly as I can and was almost in disbelief when I made it out with an XL bag. That has never happened for me before. Had I waited for the email, I would have missed it, because I went back for the screenshots I took below when the early access email finally came through. The XL bag was gone.

How Much does the Beautylish Lucky Bag Cost?

The Beautylish Lucky Bag XL is $150 and has a guaranteed value over $300 while the Lucky Bag is $75 and has a guaranteed value over $150.

You could order a Lucky Bag for yourself and donate one to a foster teen at Alternative Family Services. Each bag has the same $75 cost, but you get free shipping on both bags with this option. A Jeffree Star Cosmetics Lucky Bag has the same price as the regular bag. His products may still appear in the main bags but ordering his bag will result in only receiving his products. No matter which option you choose, Beautylish claims each customer may only order one of one type. That increases the chances more customers can at least score one bag.

What is the Sales Tax and Shipping Cost?

Beautylish Lucky Bags have a $10 shipping fee, and the Beautylish Lucky Bag XL has a $15 shipping fee. Beautylish claims it can offer more items in each bag by charging shipping.

My Beautylish Lucky Bag XL 2020 Overview

Everything comes wrapped beautifully, which is what I’ve come to expect from Beautylish orders. I love the paper encasing the Lucky Bags. The Crane is beautiful and the flower background seems hopeful.

The message is lovely and it was wrapped prettier than this, but I peeked before I took the photo. Someone else who has more patience can probably show you how great it looked.

My Beautylish Lucky Bag XL 2020 Review

My 2.5 pound Beauylish Lucky Bag XL 2020 Bag Review is below. I paid $177.38 with tax and shipping for the eight items inside my Beautylish Lucky Bag XL 2020.

I’ve been getting the Beautylish Lucky Bag since 2018. While I feel this is the best one I’ve received, an unfair advantage given it’s the only Lucky Bag XL I’ve received, it also has the most items I will probably give away.

The 8.5oz Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo retails for $49. I’ve received small samples of this, but I have not tried it yet. My concern was I would enjoy it and want a bigger sample. Now, I have it. While I wish this would have come with the conditioner, I will wash my hair at least once with only this to se what it looks like and deal with the tangles. It promises a glossiness that exfoliates the scalp. That sounds great.

The GOOD MOLECULES Niacinamide Brightening Toner retails for $14. This toner promises to promote bright, even skin and less visible pores. I wonder how Vitamin C can remain stable in this, but it looks interesting.

The HOLIFROG Kissimmee Vitamin F Therapy Balmy Wash retails for $42. I’m interested in trying this nourishing wash. It claims to pamper and feed your skin moisturizing oils and essential vitamins. This also claims to effectively remove makeup. I’ll try it both ways and see how it goes. For $16.80 an ounce, I already know I would not purchase this. Trying it will be fun though.

The VISEART Grande Pro Volume 3 retails for $175. This is now the most expensive makeup item I own. Before this, it was my Les Merveilleuses Laduree Paris Face Color Rose Laduree 02.

I forgot to take photos of the palette. As soon as I remember, I will add them.

There are 30 different colors covering most of the rainbow. The colors from top left to bottom right are:

  • Afloat: deep navy with a matte finish
  • Thunder: pitch black with a matte finish
  • Montane: deep hunter green with a matte finish
  • Chestnut: deep chocolate brown with a matte finish
  • Cider: warm reddish brown with a matte finish
  • Russet: soft golden brown with a matte finish
  • Ultramarine: rich royal blue with a matte finish
  • Pacific: deep teal with a matte finish
  • Matcha: soft olive green with a matte finish
  • Watermelon: rich raspberry with a matte finish
  • Zest: soft burnt orange with a matte finish
  • Pollen: soft yellow with a matte finish
  • Cornflower: cornflower blue with a matte finish
  • Teal: soft teal with a matte finish
  • Lucky: medium green with a matte finish
  • Blood Orange: rich crimson with a matte finish
  • Ember: rich terracotta with a matte finish
  • Daisy: soft honey with a matte finish
  • Mist: soft blue-grey with a matte finish
  • Pistachio: pistachio with a matte finish
  • Sprout: soft lime green with a matte finish
  • Chilli: deep rich red with a matte finish
  • Creamsicle: cider with a matte finish
  • Tweety: pale honey with a matte finish
  • Powder: powder blue with a matte finish
  • Mint: light teal with a matte finish
  • Khaki: army green with a matte finish
  • Toasted: medium reddish brown with a matte finish
  • Cake: light golden brown with a matte finish
  • Muffin: pale yellow with a matte finish

You know I do not usually like swatch photos with a flash (distorts color), and I stand by that. Because capturing 30 swatches in one photo would not produce a clear picture, I needed a flash. Just keep in mind, the colors in person look more like the first picture than the second. I have hundreds of palettes, but this is my first red (in Blood orange). It is a real win in my eyes. These colors are beautiful. The bottom row swatched better than the top row, and most were with one pass. No colors required more than two passes.

As soon as I wear this, I will edit in pictures and my review.

The Ardell Individuals Knot-Free Natural Lashes Long Brown retail for $4.20. I can barely handle applying a full set of lashes, so I can only imagine it taking me an hour trying to apply individual lashes to each eye. If I decide to keep these, it won’t be for an evening out. They will be for lash application practice or applying just a single piece to the outer corner. We’ll see, but for now I am on the fence with even keeping them.

The Charlotte Tilbury Latex Love Belle Du Soir retails for $34. This is a really opaque gloss with a high-shine finish.

I love the light peachy pink shade. It has an interesting texture and was more difficult to remove than most gloss swatches.

This was really long-lasting on the lips, which I expected given how long it took to remove the swatch. It is a little sticky but not so uncomfortably so that I cannot tolerate it. My hair did get stuck in it when the wind blew though. That’s never fun. The color is beautiful, and it is a great nude for my skin tone. Considering you do not get to pick a color scheme for the XL box, I got lucky. There was no inconsistent fading, and I did not have that gross tacky feeling as it wore off. I like that it is a mostly opaque shade, but you can spot some natural lip through the pigment. That might be an issue with darker colors. This does not accentuate lip lines or highlight dry patches. It feels moisturizing on the lips. Overall, it is a very nice gloss. Of the opaque formulas I’ve tried, I’d say it is one of the better ones.

The COVER | FX Shimmer Veil Celestial retails for $28. I already own this, so I will not be keeping this. This is something I love, so whoever ends up with this is in for a treat. It will likely go in my next giveaway. Whenever I use this, I have zero fallout as long as I do not blend too much. Once it sets, it stays for the rest of the day. There is no creasing.

I do not have a photo of me wearing this, but I will add one if I remember to take one next time I wear this glistening pearl shimmer.

The SONIA G Crease Pro retails for $32. I received a pencil brush from this brand last year, and I love it. My expectations for this crease brush are high. This is the type of brush I tend to use the most, so it is the perfect one to add to my collection. It helps me go even longer without washing brushes.

Was the Beautylish Lucky Bag XL 2020 Worth It?

I paid $150 (before tax and shipping) for $378.20 worth of product. Even after tax and shipping, I received $200.82 more in product value than I paid. My personal value is at least $346, because I will keep 6 of the 7 items that are new to my collection. It’s possible I may keep the lashes as well. First, I need to get over my fear of applying individual lashes. While the Shimmer Veil is beautiful, I do not need a backup. This bag was a huge risk. I’ve never gambled $150 on the unknown before (at least not that I can remember). The palette alone more than covers the cost I spent, and I am already in love. Let’s just hope I stay in love after I use it for a while.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.

Deal or No Deal? What Do You Think?
