Every season or so, Cult Beauty does a generous offer of a giant Goody Bag which comes free with purchase over a certain spending. I got one in Spring 2015, and not too long ago, was tempted to jump on the Winter one also. The Bag features sample, travel and full sizes of products from the brands Cult Beauty carries and they are good stuff. The content differs every time, but I believe they will always be swoon-worthy.

This time, for a minimum spending of £125, the Goody Bag was automatically added to the shopping cart. As Cult Beauty is UK based, for it to ship to me (at Hong Kong), the sales tax of each product will be deducted. My purchase was £134.74.
If you want to know what I purchased, and what is in the goody bag, then read on~

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit #Light to Medium 3 g x 6 Made in PRC
Honestly I'm a little disappointed when I learn that this palette is made in China. The quality is good, but I feel being ripped off nonetheless.
Morphe Brushes 6 Piece Deluxe Contour Set (690)
Morphe is quite hyped up amongst certain American youtubers. If I had more time to play with eyeshadows, I could have gotten one or two palettes. (However, I do not.) Therefore I stayed with the brushes. These are highly probably manufactured in China, although it is not stated, but I have no issue even if it is (Real Techniques also makes their brushes in China and I'm fine). I find this brand very impressive in terms of price and quality. I opted to get Morphe from Cult Beauty because I do not have to bother with the shipping fees. I have used the smaller brushes to blend my under-eye concealer. Work pretty brilliantly.
Morphe Brushes Deluxe Buffer Brush (M439)
Seriously, honestly, probably one of the best foundation buffing brushes I've ever used.
Gunmetal Pointed Buffer Brush (G2)
Haven't tried this one out yet. :P
Eve Lom The Kiss 7 ml Made in England
Heard good things about this lip balm and why not give it a go when it has such a pretty holiday packaging?
Neom Perfect Peace Candle 420 g Made in the UK
Oh. This smells so divine. (No more words for it. Swooning.)
Aurelia Probiotic Skincare The Jet Set Weekender Made in England
For £10, in the kit you get Miracle Cleanser (5 ml), Revitalise & Glow Serum (2 ml), Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser (2 ml), Cell Revitalise Night Moisturiser (2 ml), Cell Repair Night Oil (2 ml) and one, full size Bamboo Muslin Cloth. The muslin cloth itself is £2-3 so it is a very affordable way to try out this brand.
