MyGlam (June 2012)


June MG bag is here!  It is not bad but I'm not super excited about it.  We did receive some great things this month, some (as usual) don't apply to me.  Read on for some swatches and to see what I got!

Packaging

This month Andrea is on the post card.  I have to say I like the colors and the card.. but I didn't picture her to take this kind of shot. I pictured her on the beach or something (am I weird?) lol.  They also added some discount codes for 2 of the products in the bag.

  • The bag this month is very cute and glittery!  I really like it.. but it's really flimsy and thin.  I would be able to put stuff in it.. but I can't see it rolling around in my purse as a make up bag and I can't see myself bringing out to the club.  It's probably best for quick "girl" outings like a lunch or dinner date.  The button on the bag is also magnetic.. but the one on mine is a little loose on top (not sure if it's suppose to be like that).


Living Proof Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream
"Stop frizz in it's trecks, keeping all styles frizz-free, soft and smooth.  Living Proof's miracle molecule, OFPMA, conquers frizz by blocking humidity without silicone or heavy oils"

This is one of the items that don't apply to me because I don't have frizzy hair.  My hair is actually pretty tamed, just a little dry.   It has a floral scent to it and it also says "conditions".. So I guess I will use it to see if it will condition my hair =).. that way it won't go to waste.. most hair samples go to waste when I receive them.  It also has a slight pearly finish to it as well as very light when applied.

The bottle is so cute, it fits into my palm perfectly.  I can slightly turn the cap back and for but I cant pull it off.. maybe it doesn't come off.  Kind of sucks because I would love if I can re-use it for something else.



NYX Round Lipstick in Georgia
"Incredible color that resists wear and smudging, let your lipstick last all night with an amazing velvety smooth, mineral formula"

It's a pretty/girly frosty pink lipstick.  I guess it's my shade and looks good on my skin tone but I'm not really a frosty type of gal unless its ice cream from El Pollo Loco. lol!  However with a matte eye look this lipstick will look great.  It can even be doubled as a blush (build-able) or a light highlighter (seen in the last photo).



Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen
"master the art of beautiful eyes with this unique waterproof, smudge free, and long-lasting semi-permanent eyeliner pen"

I have never heard of this brand but I do like the eyeliner.  It was a pain to get off lol.  I would not recommend using it on your lower lash-line until you find the right product to remove the liner without having to scrub at it. It is a felt tip pen, goes on smooth without tugging and will blackest black if you go over the same line at least 2x.

  • It's also a duo-tip.. meaning if one side gets dull you can flip it by pulling it out by the tip and using the opposite side.


Philosophy take a deep breat oil-free energizing oxygen gel cream moisturizer.
"This lightweight moisturizer detoxifies and helps protext for a healthy-looking glow"

I have heard good and bad things about this brand. I hate getting skincare stuff in my bags/boxes because most of them break me out but I will give this a try.  I have been curious about this brand so I guess this is my chance to try it out.  You can see in the swatch that it is pearly and a sort of sheen to it.  Which is not good for my large pores and some breakouts.


What do you think about this month's bag?  I think it's good but I hope the new quizzes play a part for each bag soon because I remember putting that I have split ends and dry ends.  Anyhow I am still on the MG train and hope that next month is better =).. It's a bit funny thought that they say "we heard you wanted more makeup and we delivered".. they only delivered 2 lol but hey we can't get exactly what we want right?  I wonder if they will add 5 samples in the future and the bag or replace the bag and add a 5th.. cause for some reason I felt like I was missing a product this month.. Anyone else feel that way?
