Holt Renfrew Spring 2014 Beauty Bag

By Friday, April 18, 2014 , , , , , , , , ,

If you live in a city with a  Holt Renfrew you might know about their seasonal beauty bags. Once every few months there is a bag chocked full of beauty samples and with a $10 off coupon inside. They usually cost $35 so they are well worth the cost.  A good client of mine recently tracked down last seasons bag for me, and while the coupon is expired it is still an amazing deal for me.
First up is the bag. It is holographic on the outside making it a bit hard on the eyes (and camera), but inside it has a bright pink lining with a mirror and 4 brush holders.
 It also has a great shape so I feel I can really put it to good use on my up coming trips. 
There is also a mesh pouch that buttons in and can be removed. 
So what is inside. Well they claim this bag has a $160 value so lets take a peek.
The fantastic Fun Size Beauty did the math, I'm honestly just stealing it for my post, why do the math when someone else did (another reason I won't have kids, that isn't a good lesson to teach them)???
  • Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask Instant Youth $11.33
  • Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair $14.70
  • Chantecaille Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask $7.90
  • Erno Laslo Timeless Skin Age Prevention Serum $38.82
  • Clinique Almost Lipstick in "Black Honey" $8.14
  • Carven L'Eau de Toilette $1.36
  • Lancome Genefique Yeux Light Pearl $22.00
Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in "Groove is in the Heart" $9.60
So in the end the bag has a value of $113.68 in products. That isn't a $160 but you add the $10 off coupon (that expired on me) and the bag I'm sure that gets you closer to $140.

Overall I am happy I got it, even a bit late. The new seasons box is $45 and I don't think it is a nearly as nice a bag/items. I am most happy about the lipstick and the nail polish.
