Hey Beauty Junkies!
As you can see in the previous pictures i received my first "myglaaam bag" ( in a opera voice lol) in the mail on friday!! I was so excited.. I wish i would have joined the bandwagon and signed up for the December bag as well.. but i was a little dissapointed with my first birchbox so it made me hesitant of myglam. Anyhow, I have used each product at lease twice =)..
so here is my little review of each item. Please click on any of the images to see the larger version.
It came in a shiny purple bubble bag =).. very pretty !
Inside was myglam bag and the cucumber mask.
The rest of the products were packaged inside of the makeup bag. Everything was neatly packed. I really was not expecting the items to be inside the given bag. I thought that like any other company they were going to send the bag wrapped in plastic and the rest of the products in a box. I am very happy with the packaging.. it fits into my mailbox perfectly.. that way I don't have to worry about missing the mailman and having to go to the post office to pick it up (like my birchbox and julep maven box). The bag is so cute and simple ! i love simple things !..
♡TheBalm Cosmetics Hot Ticket Nail Polish in Silver Spoon me - .5fl oz. | 10$ value
Pros: Only takes 1 coat, drying time is short, beautiful colorCons: 10$ can be pricey to some just for a polish.
For this month each "glammie" was either going to receive a nail polish or an eyeshadow from TheBalm Cosmetics. I received the nail polish, which i am very happy about because I love nail polish. The bottle design is very cute. The shimmers of the polish shines through the bottle.. there is just so much color in this bottle i cannot stop looking at it lol. However, I am not a huge fan of the color.. it surely is a beautiful metallic color but I usually go more towards creme shades. I guess this polish will bring me a little out of my comfort zone =)..The swatches on my nail wheel is just 1 coat of the polish, no top coat ! how amazing is that !! It also dry's so fast that you won't need to worry about smudging or chipping your manicure. You can simply put it on minutes before you head out the door with no worries. I cannot speak for other shades or non-metallic shades..
♡Freeman Cucumber Facial Peel-off Masque - 6fl oz. | 8$ value
Pros: affordable, very light, gentle, cooling, leaves the skin feeling smoothCons: (I will have to continue using this product in order to see if it fulfills all their claims.)
As you can see the mask is a transparent mask. This mask is suppose to "Nourish, hydrate, and replenish your skin".. As I was testing this product on my hand (so that I can show you guys pictures), I was also testing it on my face at the same time. When I first put the mask on my face I noticed a very cooling effect, which I really liked. Usually it is painful and a little difficult when I peel off a mask but this one was very gentle and easy to peel off. Also if you look at the pictures you can see that this product is not heavy on the skin at all. While i was peeling off the mask it was still very soft as though the peel was still a little hydrated. It definitely left my skin smooth, but did it hydrate or nourish my skin.. not sure. I have very dry skin so it is hard for me to try a product that will actually hydrate my skin. As you can see in the last picture the mask sank into my fine lines.. so I have no doubt that it took away my impurities off my face. Over all i really like this product and will continue to use it at least 1x a week or 2. =)
♡Sheer Cover Duo Concealer in Light/Medium - .10fl oz. | 29$ value
Pros: good coverage, medium to full coverage, very light, creamy, pigmentedCons: would not recommend for excessive dry skin, unless used with moisturizer and a primer, a bit pricey
no primer. With my Revlon Colorstay Foundation
As you guys can see from the previous pictures that my skin is not perfect. I have very dry skin as well as scaring and blemishes from current and previous acne. I love that the concealer is very creamy and pigmented so a little really goes a long way. I also love that it is still intact after several hours. I recommend wearing a face primer before applying this product on your face. I did not apply one because i do not own any face primers but i did apply moisturizer before applying the concealer and my foundation. I am very impressed with the coverage! It really covers well without feeling heavy on your skin. Overall i would recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a light concealer with great coverage.
Pros: conditioned, hydrated, silky smooth, soft to touchCons: Pricey
Would i purchase this product? Absolutely if the price was in my budget. Being a college student this is not in my budget.
Am i glad i tried it? Indeed i am! Because i can recommend this product to anyone as well as purchase it when i have a higher budget.
EDIT: I was just told that the Wen is a cleanse and conditioner at the same time !

That is it for my review on the products from myglam bag. I hope that i was detailed enough and that my reviews and pictures were helpful =).
