MyGlam June!

I’m super excited that my bag go here so fast!
I love getting  MyGlam in the mail.

When I see that shiny pink bubble mailer popping out of my mail box, it’s a tell tell sign that MyGlam has arrived!
I love to re-use the mailers to send packages to friends & even blog Giveaway winners 😉

Okay, so inside the mailer were these two cards (sneak peaks at some of the brands included!)
And the ever glamorous MyGlam bag!

This month’s theme was Out All Night, meant to help you get glam for a night out with your girlfriends!
I loved the idea and our sneak peaks boasted two cosmetic items!

Other side of the card.
Brands included this month are Philosophy, NYX, Living Proof & Marbella.

Contents of the bag.

First thing listed on the card is by Philosophy and it is their Take a Deep Breath, an oil-free energizing gel cream moisturizer. The smell is very fresh and reminds me of sunscreen a little bit (but not the SPF part, if that makes sense to anyone) A full size of this product is $34 for 2zo, making this .4oz sample worth $6.80. This was the product I was least excited about. Wait, what?! I know you may be shocked to hear that but that is only because I have oily skin and this summer I will be battling my skins excessive moisture, rather than adding to it. I usually give away moisturizers when I get them, but I will likely hold on to this one and hope I can use it this winter. Love me some Philosophy!

Next, was a full sized NYX lipstick. Listing to it’s customers, MyGlam included fun reds & pinks in this months bag. Not a single person received a brown lipstick! I am truly impressed with how quickly MyGlam was able to make a turn around after many people were unhappy with their lipstick colors.

I received the color 626 Vitamin.

This is a beautiful coral color. It’s not something I would have chosen for myself, but that is why I love it. Now that I have it, I will certainly give it a go. It looks like a color I would love to have on my nails.

I was a little shocked at how shimmery it was in the light (this picture was a little hard to get) but it is going to be so much fun to try! Especially after I’ve gotten some sun! Coral is a huge hit color this summer. This product retails for $4.

We also received a product from Living Proof. I’ve heard of this company before & when it was thrown around that we may be getting a product from this brand, I was hoping it would be from their anti-frizz line! & score! it is. This is their nourishing styling cream, it has a pleasant “shampoo” smell. Full size retails for $26 for 4oz, we received half size bottles with a value of $13!

Lastly is the Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen in the color 30 (or black) This is full sized and retails for $25, though you can find them on sale for $10 right now.The tip of this pen looks great, a fine point with the option to use it at an angle for a wider line.

I will say though, that is is VERY permanent. I have scrubbed this swatch on my hand twice already and it does not want to come off. That has it’s pros and cons. I’m excited to try it and not have to reapply for a day or more,  but if I were to slip and mess up- well, it would not come off! I’ve never heard of this brand before but it’s certainly one I’ll look into.

So, I wanted to finish up by talking about the bag. A lot of people were concerned that the bag looked cheap this month.
I found the magnetic clasp to be very sturdy.
The inside was off white canvas and I personally like it.

The only real downfall I found was the amount of glitter than came off onto my hand and my products, but I’ve had this happen with almost every glitter covered bag I’ve ever owned. Usually when you wash it the first time, this stops happening.

MyGlam is still one of my favorite monthly subscriptions,
at $10 it is also one of the cheapest! But they don’t skimp on the value!
This months bag was worth $33.80- that does not include the bag and that is counting the eyeliner at it’s sale price 🙂
