Find out what's in the Fabled birthday goodie bag!
If you haven't heard of Fabled yet then, it's a beauty destination by Marie Claire. They offer the best beauty brands from big brands to new ones, and have an online website as well as a store on Tottenham Court Road in London. It's one of my favourite places to shop online because they sell all of my favourite brands and offer free next day delivery over £15 which is amazing if you're as impatient as I am when treating yourself to some new goodies! This month they're celebrating their second birthday and they have brought out an exclusive, limited edition goodie bag full of lots of miniature treats. It's a fab way to get to try out some new brands and some travel sized versions of some treats with pretty hefty price tags. There's also a voucher inside that gives you £20 off of a £50 spend which is an incredible deal if you ask me... I've already spent mine on some new NARS goodies and saved myself so many pennies! If you fancy finding out what treats are inside the bag then keep on reading...
If you know me then you know how much I love NARS, and the audacious mascara is something I'm yet to try out but I was so excited when I saw it in the bag! This is just a mini sample size but it gives you a chance to test it out and decide whether the full size is worth purchasing. So far I absolutely love it, it gives me a lot of length which my lashes are in need of and it separates them really nicely with no clumping. It still doesn't compare to my beloved lash sensational but it's an amazing one for creating long lashes!
I already own a miniature of the Laura Geller illuminator in Gilded Honey, I got it ages ago now and use it almost every single day and it's still going strong! Imagine how long a full sized version would last?! I absolutely love it, it's the perfect everyday highlight for me and gives a beautiful glow to the cheeks without being OTT.
I always love it when a nail polish is included in a goodie bag, and this bright red is the perfect summery addition to my collection. I paint my nails so often as they constantly get chipped with me being a mum and constantly cleaning so I can never have enough!
I've heard really good things about the exfoliating cleanser from Murad and since it arrived I've used it to cleanse my skin every evening. Exfoliating cleansers are my faves as they help cleanse my skin whilst making it nice and smooth at the same time. I'm really liking this one as it's so gentle on my skin - definitely going to purchase a full size.
I haven't tried this out yet but I'm so excited to! I use purple shampoo on my hair quite often as it tends to get so brassy and the ends get so dried out that a hair repair is exactly what I need. It says it helps to prevent breakage and my hair is awful for shedding so I am definitely giving this a try soon.
This is one hell of an expensive lip balm, but the mini inside this goodie bag is such a treat! It's also super cute and perfect for popping in my handbag or having in my car for when I need it. It's amazing how much I apply lip balm when my lips are going through a dry patch, I tend to have one everywhere so there's always one in easy reach. This By Terry offering is definitely a treat to use, it's rose infused and smells gorgeous, the texture is also quite thick yet not sticky and it's super hydrating.
I've tried a few Caudalie skincare products in the past so I have loved having another one to try out. I'm terrible for forgetting to use serums in my skincare routine so I've been keeping this miniature on my desk so that I remember to use it every morning and evening. It's a lightweight serum that corrects and evens out your skin tone whilst boosting radiance. I've noticed that my skin is already looking healthier and brighter, with less redness since adding this to my routine so I'm very tempted to pick up a full size.
I've never tried this fragrance before but even the miniature version has the prettiest packaging ever! It looks so beautiful stood on my desk and it's going to make the prettiest flat lay prop. The scent of the perfume is very elegant and sophisticated but I love it, it's a lot different to the other fragrances in my collection so it's a welcomed addition.
I'd never heard of this soap before but everyone else seems to have so I'm not sure where I've been! I feel like it's hard to review a soap based on a tiny sample like this, but it's a very cute little miniature and perfect for chucking in your toiletry bag for a short break away.
I'm honestly so impressed with the packaging of this Dylan Blue fragrance, the miniature of it is literally the most beautiful bottle - nothing like those boring little plastic samples you usually get of perfumes. It's got to be one of the cutest things I currently own I'm a bit obsessed... Not to mention that the fragrance itself smells absolutely divine! This one is the ultimate little treat.
Does anyone else find eye masks so nice during the summer months? I love how cold they feel under my eyes when it's hot and humid. I actually tried this Lancome one out the day it arrived as I was that impatient to use it! I was really impressed with how much product was on the actual masks, they sank into my skin so easily and stayed put for ages. I left them on for about an hour whilst I pottered about the house and afterwards my eyes just felt so refreshed and looked lovely and brightened. I am definitely picking up more of these!
The Prismologie Diamond & Neroli shower cream that's included is actually a full sized product which is lovely! Shower creams always sound a bit boring but they're also a product that you'll never not find on my bathroom shelf so they're essential really aren't they? I'm loving this one so far, I popped it under a running tap the other night whilst my bath was filling up and it created the most dreamy bubbles. The scent is lovely and it's so moisturising!
Last but not least there's a little package of samples from UD. These include a little perversion mascara as well as samples of some of their well-known eyeshadow palettes. I've actually never seen eyeshadow swatches before so this is completely new to me but they're so cool. More brands need to start doing these!
If you fancy grabbing yourself this birthday bag full of treats (worth £100 in total!) then you can get it free with any Fabled spend over £85. I've popped together a list of some of my favourite beauty & skincare bits, as well as things on my lust list, if you fancy having a browse and treating yourself and getting this bag free in the process.

Do you think you'll be getting yourself this bargain?
