eBeauty.ca Here Comes The Sun beauty bag!


eBeauty.ca Here Comes The Sun beauty bag ($30.00)
It was just two days ago that I ordered my Here Comes The Sun beauty bag from eBeauty.ca for a mere $30.00! It arrived today and I missed the mailman. My slip said I would have to pick it up tomorrow after 1pm but I called the post office and they told me it was there, so I drove right over and picked up my precious parcel!
I received a full sized Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer ($79.00/59ml) which was really the big ticket item in this bag! I opened the box and oh boy, the packaging on this thing is luxe! It is an anti-aging moisturizer that will reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores while firming and lifting the appearance of the skin. I am not sure if I will use this or pass it off to someone else at this point because it may break out my temperamental skin!
The It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Airbrushed Bronzer ($29.00/6.8g) is fortified with hydro-collagen, silk and vitamins K, A, C and E! I have a lot of bronzers on the go at the moment so it'll go in my stock pile.
Mereadesso Lip Treats ($28.00 for 2) were received by many girls in a past Glymm box if I recall correctly. I received two in clear. On the website it was advertised that we would receive a tinted lip treat, but I am fine with clear because it is more versatile. This will be an interesting product to try because I would never, ever pay full price for these little things! I will see if they live up to their high retail value.
I received a sample size of Cargo's Lash Activator mascara, which I actually reviewed a while back. I quite like this mascara, but not enough to pay its retail price. I am still in love with Marcelle's Lash Xtension mascara and benefit's badGal lash!
My bag included an NYX Xtreme Lip Cream (7ml) which was not what was advertised on the website. eBeauty.ca stated I would receive a "NYX Cosmetics Xtreme Lip Gloss - value of $17.99 (11mL)". I emailed them about this issue and await a response. The colour I received is Nude Peach Fuzz and it is actually a colour I quite like! 
I also got a dinky sample of Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine which I believe Glymm subscribers also received a little while ago. This smells very light and citrusy and I do enjoy it, but not enough to switch from my favourite every day scent,  Candy by Prada! 
I received a Lippygirl Organic Mineral Blush in the shade "tongue in cheek" ($16.50/3.5g). I opened it to take a look and the packaging on the blush is very difficult to open. Not very user-friendly! The product itself comes from a Canadian company but is manufactured in China.
The Boscia Vanilla Blotting Linens ($12.00/100 sheets) were one of the main selling points in this bag for me. I was so excited to try them that I opened these up right away and used one! They smell AMAZING and did a great job of blotting the oil on my face from this sweltering weather. 
Lastly, the Mini Swarovski Crystal File in Pink was the second big selling point for me- I have never owned a glass file before and I've heard nothing but wonderful things about them! This one has gorgeous crystals which make it very pleasing on the eyes as well! 
LaVanila 'The Healthy Deodorant' in vanilla coconut
With eBeauty.ca you need to spend $50.00 to get free shipping so I added on another LaVanila Heathy Deodorant ($19.00/50g) in the scent vanilla coconut! I still have at least half of my original deodorant left (even with daily use!!) but eBeauty.ca sells this deodorant for a much cheaper price than Sephora so I figured I would stock up.

Overall, I am happy with what I received for $30.00! The cosmetic bag itself is also very nice quality and I love its vibrant colour! I usually dislike orange, but for a cosmetic bag I like it just fine :)
I hope you all are enjoying the start to your long weekend!

    1. I got an email back from ebeautys online support telling me I have to call about this 'issue'. I HATE calling.. it seems I always get stuck on hold for a good half hour.

    2. They didn't even email me back yet and it has been since yesterday afternoon. Maybe they're going backwards with their email replies. I hate calling too... I don't express myself as well that way.

    3. I got an auto reply telling me to call customer care about my issue :/

  2. Oh I want this so bad! But I must go back to school shopping... I will go to a mall for the first time tomorrow, but my ginger cousin will only let me buy the bare minimum.:( ugh.

    2. Yup. At least since I'm old enough to remember... We didn't even go, mom said, "you're not an odd size do we can just go to kohls for you." sigh

  4. this bag is amazing! After reading your great review about the Lanvila deodorant, I'm so tempted to place an order but as you said, need $50 to get free shipping. I think this bag is amazing. I may have to get one myself too. Thanks!

    Happy long weekend!

    1. I love these deals and I admit I am a bit of a sucker for them since in fact, I don't have use for everything it came with.. oh well, I still feel it was money wisely spent!

  5. That is an amazing bag and a GREAT value! I love the NYX shade you received, I could definitely see myself wearing it:)

    1. yes it is such a cute shade, I will review it! I got a great value on this little bag and it is still for sale if you want one too!

  6. That is a really great deal for just $30 :) To be honest I probably would be more interested in receiving the NYX Xtreme Lip Cream than the gloss, though they'd be fairly similar to me anyway. But it's annoying when the description or what you anticipated doesn't match what you received (unless of course, you prefer the substitute!). I can imagine how the Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer would be luxuriously packaged. Let us know how it is if you do decide to use it on yourself.

    1. To be honest, I do quite like the lip cream! The only reason I have to be bothered is the value difference. I dislike dishonesty from companies and their lack of complete transparency is something I feel needed to be addressed.

  7. wow what a great deal for just $30!!
    do you like the boscia linens?

    1. I LOVE them! they smell great and the scent actually lingers on the skin in a delicious way! I would never buy these at retail (blotting papers are a frivolous luxury in my eyes) but in a beauty bag? yes PLEASE!

  12. I was debating getting this too after the beauty tote bag. The main thing for me was I didn't want to end up with 2 of those moisturizers. I'm a serious blush/bronzer nut so I want to see swatches of those please!

    1. I didn't buy the tote but if I recall it was also only $30 and had a higher overall value than this one? But I think it had products in it I wasn't as interested in.

  13. Looks like a great bag for $30. I need to check out those Boscia blotting sheets.. I wanna smell them hahaha

  14. Looks like it was definitely worth the $30! Thank you for posting your opinion on the bag :) I am always a little nervous to purchase these because I am worried I won't like anything and it will be a bust!

    1. Well if that is the case, you can always return the bag! They send you a free return shipping label with the package which is cool.
