The Beautylish Lucky Bag is a wonderful annual tradition produced by global online beauty retailer Beautylish. You may have heard the hype on Instagram and from your favourite influencers about the Beautylish Lucky Bag, an annual ‘lucky dip’ of sorts that allows you to pay a once-off price to get a mystery delivery of beauty products in value well exceeding the price you pay.

As I’ve always believed, beauty products aren’t a selfish commodity, they are a tool of creativity, of art and of self-expression. Continue Reading
