Joppa Grab Bag



Lookie here! It's my Joppa Grab Bag! These grab bags are all the rage in GirlTalk, so being the MMU addict that I am, I had to see what all the fuzz is about. These actually arrived last April 27, but I only got my hands on them yesterday. I'm posting this because a lot of people are still curious and debating whether they should get their own. I hope this post would help other people.

What is the Joppa Grab Bag? It's a bag that costs $18 (and free shipping worldwide) where they put stuff filled with clearance items for one reason or another. You can't choose what you get here, you can only hope for the best. So what did my grab bag contain? I got a FS Medium #1 in full coverage (I haven't swatched it yet, but it's REALLY big), a jar of Sheer Finishing Silk, Cherish eyeshadow, Olive Leaf eyeshadow, Field of Lavender Soap, and Devoted Silk and Supple Lip Stick. I haven't swatched any of them but the lippie, it looks like a semi-dark red, but when i wore it, it was very sheer and shimmery. Pretty! My only problem is that it smells like oil :P

So what is the verdict? You get your money's worth for $18, but it's not as much as the previous grab bags where there were a lot of eyeshadows and a few lippies. But it's also possible that it's the giant jar of foundation that ate up my credit. Haha? So what do you think? I leave it up to you to decide.

Anyway, that's all for now. I know I'm supposed to post pictures of my trip, but I haven't gotten all my pictures yet. I promise that my next post will be about my trip :D

I hope the foundation suits you!

Crissy said...

I don't think I would buy.

Spending so much, probably for that foundation and who knows if it will match ?! D:

i've been looking for pics of that grab bag ever since i saw that on joppa.

i know that the contents are just randomly selected.

maybe ill buy that sometime, pero now i've been waiting for a couple of stuff that i brought online.

but in fairness to Joppa, their foundations are good!

^_^

Crystal said...

cris, i know, it really is. a lot of people got good stuff, so i was hoping i would to!

blair, i tried matching it with my other foundies, it seems like a good match.

Crystal said...

crissy, yeah i know what you mean. thankfully MMU foundations are very forgiving.

thiamere, i know what you mean. i keep ignoring their foundies, but everytime i go back to using it, i'm always delighted!
