One of the gifts I received for Christmas was this fun Mystery Selection box from Illamasqua, which is available at Sephora. I’m actually pretty new to the brand so this is a great way to try a few products out, and I think the grab-bag set makes a really fabulous gift! The way the box works is that you receive two named products, a nail varnish in Milf (mint green) and a sheer lip gloss in Lily-Rose (warm raspberry pink), and then four mystery products including a powder eye shadow, a cream pigment, a pencil and a gloss.

Here are the products I received!

Grab bags are fun, and it’s even better when you’re genuinely stoked about the things you receive in it! I’m really excited about getting to experiment with these products. All I have so far are first impressions, but the textures of the products seemed really nice. I’ll share some more thoughts once I’ve had a chance to develop some.

In case you’re curious, Illamasqua actually has two different kinds of mystery boxes available on Sephora. This one is the one I received, and this one is similar but comes with different types of products, including a pair of false lashes.

Did you receive any fun beauty gifts over the holidays?
