Myglam is now ipsy: September’s Bag





Final thoughts: August Myglam Bag and August Birchbox

August was the fourth month I received a Myglam Bag and a Birchbox.

The theme of the August Myglam Bag was Endless Summer.  My bag consisted of:

  1. Eclos plant-based beauty Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream – sample
  2. Eclos plant-based beauty Cellular Activator Facial Serum – sample
  3. Demeter Fragrance Library Roll on Perfume Oil – full size
  4. s.a.l.t.y cosmetics Glama-ZOID! Eye Shadow – deluxe sample
  5. Circus by Andrea’s Choice Nail Color in Ringmaster – full size
  6. Glam Gloss – full size

I really liked everything about the August Myglam Bag.  I wasn’t sure how my skin was going to react to the Eclos Moisture Therapy Cream and the Cellular Facial Serum.  My skin is oily and I didn’t know if the moisturizer was going to make it worse.  I didn’t experience any skin issues.  The Glama-ZOID eye shadow really surprised me. I looked at the color in the container and thought it was going to look chalky on me.  This color was a beautiful purple shade.  The Andrea’s Choice nail color got me attention as well.  It’s a really bright pink color.  I have other pink nail polishes yet this color still managed to be unique.  If I had to pick one thing that stood out, it would be the s.a.l.t.y cosmetics Glama-ZOID eyeshadow.  The color completely caught me off guard in a good way. 🙂

The theme for the August Birchbox was Beauty School.  My box consisted of:

  1. DDF Brightening Cleanser – deluxe sample
  2. Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur – sample
  3. ShowStoppers Designer Fashion Tape sample
  4. Stila stay all day ™ 10-in-1 HD beauty balm, foundation & concealer – sample
  5. Schick Hydro Silk Razor

I wasn’t quite sure how to react when I first opened the August Birchbox. I was both excited and disappointed.  The DDR Brightening Cleanser did a good job of removing dirt and makeup without drying out my skin. I’ve always liked Juicy Couture fragrances. La Fleur fragrance has a nice floral scent without being overpowering.  I wish there was a bigger sample of the Stila beauty balm, foundation and concealer. The color actually matched my complexion.  What stood out for me the most was the Schick Hydro Silk Razor.  I have never used a razor with 5 blades before.

Final thoughts: July Myglam Bag and July Birchbox

July was the third month I received a Myglam Bag and a Birchbox.

The theme of July’s Myglam bag was Beach Beauty. My bag consisted of:

  1. Juice Beauty Green Apple SPF 15 Moisturizer – sample
  2. NUME HydroPunch Hydrating Conditioner – sample
  3. Yes to Cucumbers On-The-Go Facial Towelettes – pack of 10 towelettes
  4. Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish – deluxe sample in Sugar
  5. Circus by Andrea’s Choice Nail Color in Somersault – full size

The July Myglam Bag was another winner for me. The Green Apple Moisturizer was very lightweight. That was especially important for me considering the Summer in my area has been hot and humid. The Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes did a good job of removing my makeup and didn’t leave an oily residue behind. The Circus Nail Polish I received was a beautiful pastel yellow shade. My favorite beauty item in July’s Myglam Bag was the Buxom Lip Polish in Sugar. This shade looks great on everyone. It’s a shade you can wear everyday.

The theme for July’s Birchbox was the five senses. My box consisted of:

  1. Alterna BAMBOO UV + Color Protection Fade-Proof Fluide – sample
  2. Color Club Nail Polish in Blue-Ming – mini size
  3. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Purple – full size
  4. Harvey Prince Eau Flirt – sample
  5. LARABAR uber – snack size sample
  6. Birchbox Exclusive Earbuds

When I opened July’s Birchbox the first thing that caught my eye was the earbuds. They must really be good headphones because my youngest daughter has them now. I was also happy to see the Eyeko Eyeliner. I had to hide the eyeliner from my oldest daughter since purple is her favorite color. The Eyeko Eyeliner glides on so smoothly with the felt tip applicator. The Color Club mini nail polish in Blue Ming was also a winner. I got so many compliments when I wore that color. I also had to remind my youngest to give the nail polish back to me. The eyeliner and the nail polish were my favorite beauty items in the July Birchbox. The Eyeko Eyeliner is long wearing and a great alternative to wearing the basic black eyeliner.

Final thoughts: June Myglam Bag and June Birchbox

June was the second month that I received a Myglam Bag and a Birchbox.

The theme of the June Myglam Bag was Out All Night.  My bag consisted of:

  1. Philosophy take a deep breath oil-free energizing oxygen gel cream moisturizer- sample
  2. Full size NYX Round Lipstick in Iced Honey
  3. Living proof frizz Nourishing Styling Cream – sample
  4. Full size Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen

I was really pleased with the June Myglam Bag overall. To receive two full size products is definitely worth the $10 a month for me.  The Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen stood out for me the most.  This eyeliner held up to hot and humid weather and lasted all day for me.

The theme of the June Birchbox was Jet Set. My box consisted of:

  1. Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume – sample
  2. Masqueology Pore Minimizing Mask – one mask
  3. Melvita Rose Floral Water – deluxe sample
  4. theBalm cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen – sample
  5. Band-Aid brand Cynthia Rowley Dress Up Band-Aids

I was pleasantly surprised to find five products in the Birchbox. I felt that was $10 well spent for June.  The item that stood out for me the most was the Melvita Rose Floral Water. I really love the fragrance and it wasn’t overpowering

Beauty Subscriptions

May was a busy month especially when it came to beauty. I recently discovered the world of beauty subscriptions. That involves paying for a subscription service to receive beauty samples every month. The two subscription services I signed up for are Birchbox and Myglam. You have the option of paying $10 per month or $110 for a year. I was initially put on a waiting list until a slot opened up. There are many more beauty subscriptions to choose from.
