I was uber excited to see my pink glam bag package in the mail. Like, just got surprised with a puppy named Pancake wearing a perfectly tied pink and green plaid bow kind of happy. Yea, I’m that girl. I heard buzz of this one being good but I never like to get my hopes up. I get so happy when I know my package has shipped on time, I know quite a few have had issues with that. So far, I’ve gotten shipment notifications by email with no problem and fast delivery within just a few days. The last two months of MyGlam has really pleased me.

So I love Juice Beauty so of course I’m ecstatic to get their Green Apple SPF 15 Moisturizer sample in my glam bag. This Florida girl can never get enough sunblock, so i hope I love this product just like the other Juice Beauty products I love! I’ve never tried NuMe products but hear great things about their styling tools…I really want to try their pearl curler! I’m hopeful about NuMe HydroPunch Hydrating Conditioner and of course will post a review once I use it. Very cool so far MyGlam, very cool.
I love, love, love Yes To Carrots and Yes To Cucumbers is their soothing, sensitive skin care line and I tend to have sensitive skin. I’m beyond happy to get this uber cute travel pack of Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes, although Mr. Man would’ve been happier if I got Yes To Carrots. He’s hooked on it and that probably would make him have an appreciation for MyGlam other than it being my “girl stuff bag” subscription. Yup, it’s not a glam bag, it’s a “girl stuff bag”…dudes!
So…lip goodies…you know that usually makes me happy! I was stoked to try Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish by Bare Escentuals and April looks like such a gorgeous pink color. But unfortunately I think it’s too sparkly for my taste and made me feel 13! Even though I could tone that down by not using much, I also noticed a burning sensation mere seconds after putting it on and it lasted even several minutes after taking it off. Yes, I said burning, not tingling…it actually hurt and I had to remove it. It may be awesome for others but I personally had a bad reaction to it so I can’t vouch for it myself. Hopefully I’ll find someone who can use it without a bad reaction and who’ll love the sparkly color!
I have to admit I really wanted the Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip and Cheek Stain that was floating around the internet a a glam bag goodie this month. But I’m very happy to get my hands on Circus By Andrea’s Choice Nail Color! As many of you know, Andrea’s Choice is a widely known Youtube beauty guru and one of the darlings behind MyGlam. I’m interested in testing the nail polish out to see the quality in the formula, brush and finish. I got Reverso but I may see if anyone has Somersault and is willing to trade. Only because I already have Snow White by Zoya but I have no yellow polish. All in all, I really like this month’s glam bag and feel like MyGlam is getting better. I even like the actual bag, it’s fun, cute, won’t leave glitter all over the place and doesn’t have a weird smell! At first I thought MyGlam was just nice but I’m beginning to like it more and more. It’s becoming one of my favorite beauty sample subscriptions so I hope they keep it up! We’ll see…
MyGlam is a monthly sample program that delivers 4-5 beauty products in a super cute makeup bag. Some items are samples, some are full-size and the subscription price is $10 shipped. You can see my June MyGlam glam bag for a look at previous items.
