My October Vellvette Bag

5 Nov


This is my first Vellvette bag and I while I eagerly awaited its arrival in October, it only got to me in November. But, I guess that was because I only registered with them mid-month. Anyways ladies, here’s what I think of my very first Vellvette bag.

October’s Vellvette bag is called the K.I.S.S edition (keep it simple and sexy).


What I received


The BeautyUK Eye Shadow Palette – Naked


I absolutely love this addition to my bag. I received the full size palette which costs about INR 603. It has 10 neutral eye shadows and they are compact enough to carry around in my bag every day. The colors seem quite pigmented and I know I can create many smokey looks with this palette. So thank you Vellvette for adding this to my bag xoIMG_1477

H2O Oasis Ultra Hydrator


I received an 8ml sample of this moisturizer. A full size 50ml container costs INR 2400. This moisturizer claims to hydrate and illuminate dull, depleted skin. It also claims to have hydrating marine botanicals that provide instant hydration to visiblyplump and smotthen dry skin. In addion to this, it claims to protect against aging.
I am going to try this product and see if it stands up to its claims. I am not sure if the quantity I received will show me results though. Let’s wait and watch.

Vantiv Energizing Shampoo + Cool Water Shower Gel


I received two ful sized potions of these two products. Frankly I did not fancy receiving these products as they are affordable and something I wouldn’t pick off a beauty shelf. I am very careful about what goes onto my scalp and this shampoo is packed with chemicals. So I guess I’ll have to find an alternative use for the shampoo. I may just use it to wash my makeup brushes.

The shower gel on theother hand, I may just try. It has quite a strong fragrance that I usually don’t like, but it claims to have Aloe Vera, so I mightas wellgive it a go. But I know, I won’t be picking up these two products ever.

What I liked about the October Vellvette Bag

  • I love the blue pouch my products came in. The size is perfect and it is now going to travel with me in my handbag with my makeup neccessities.
  • I like the fact that Velvette has included some full sized products for us to sample and I consider my subscription well worth it.
  • I love the eye palette as I am a makeup buff and the colors are perfect for the season.

What put me off this month’s Vellvette bag

  • The bag only got to me in November and it had a coupon to invite a friend. I gave the coupon to a friend who realizedthat it expired on the 31st of October. What an embarassment! Attention to little deatils should be the mantra for customer delight. (I have to mention the Vellvette crew noticed this complaint and wrote back to me with a new coupon – thanks you guys!)
  • The products don’t have visible manufactured dates whichmakes me weary of whether they have expired or are about to expire.
  • The shower gel was damaged and half the product was splattered in the packaging. Yuck! Here’s what it looked like when I opened it.


All in all, I have mixed feelings about the October bag and only hope the bag I get in November makes up for lost feelings of joy.

Please brighten my bag for November, Vellvette!!
