Zoya Cyber Monday 2014 Mystery Bag & Box
(retail: $15 + free shipping on the Zoya website)
Keep reading for pics...
The "bag" part of the Zoya Mystery Bag & Box contained a Mini Color Lock System, which retails for $20 on the Zoya website. So right off the bat, there's your money's worth + $5, since the total price of the Mystery Bag & Box was $15 + free shipping.
The first items in the box were wrapped in Zoya tissue paper:
- Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator 0.25 oz (retail: $12 on the Zoya site)
- Zoya Matte Velvet Red Lipstick (retail: $12 on the Zoya site)
Also inside the box was a smaller box...
...which contained three even smaller boxes:
Inside the three smaller boxes:
Minis in Willa, Alix, Lael
Zoya minis are exactly half the size of full-size Zoya polishes (0.25 oz each). Zoya minis retail for $5 each on the Zoya site, but I don't believe these three shades are currently available for purchase in mini sizes (click here for the listing of minis currently available). So the retail value of these three polishes is $15 total.
The package also included this:
Adding up everything in this "bag & box," the total retail value come to $59. I definitely think this set was an excellent value for $15 + free shipping, but I know that some of you were disappointed in the select of items here. I have to admit, I was hoping to get maybe one full-size polish in this box, but minis are fine since I never finish full-size bottles of polish anyway. Sure, the colors of the minis aren't too exciting, but you know I love my cremes, so no complaints from me there. I just noticed that the back of the lipstick box says "limited edition," so it's fun to have a limited edition red lippie...with a matte finish to boot. I've always wanted to try Zoya's Color Lock System, so no complaints from me there. And you know I need all the help I can get when it comes to natural nail growth, so I'm happy with the Qtica product as well. And who doesn't love 50% off your next order?
For me personally, this was a great value given that I received products that I will actually use. I would definitely take my chances and order a mystery box from Zoya again next year. How about you?
