MyGlam Bag – April 2012

MyGlam bag April 2012

I’m going to start off this post by stating that this is my least favorite MyGlam bag so far.  I’m really disappointed in this month’s bag, so much so that I’m really considering cancelling my account.  As soon as I felt the bubble mailer, I had a feeling I wasn’t going to be happy.  It felt empty.

The first thing you’ll see is the bright pink, shiny makeup bag.  So not my thing.  Inside the MyGlam bag we got 5 items.  The first two things are makeup brushes similar to the one we got last month.  One is an eyeshadow brush and one is an eyeliner brush.

The next item is Dermstore’s Lip Quench, a moisturizing lip treatment.  This has a slightly fruity smell at first but when I apply it, it smells like plastic.  And on top of that, I received the Pur-lisse Lip Comfort last month which was almost exactly like this lip quench.  At least this one has a slight pink color to it.

Next up is a sample sized (0.03oz) Urban Decay 24/7 glide on eyeliner pencil in the color Perversion, which is jet black.  This sample is the only item that is so-so for me.  I like the Urban Decay eyeliners but they never wear well for me. They’re so soft and don’t stay put on my oily eyelids.  This jet black color will be a mess for me so I probably won’t use it.

Lastly we have a pair of false eyelashes that I’ll never use.  I don’t wear false eyelashes so I have no use for these at all.  I can’t even tell you more about them because they are in a foreign language.

Now for my little rant as to why I’m so disappointed.  I subscribe for these sample services to get just that.  Samples of products that I can try first before I buy them full size.  I get that most people will really love getting the makeup brushes but to be honest, Michelle Phan getting a factory to make makeup brushes in mass quantities probably is costing pennies per brush.  So of course she’s going to do that and make us feel like we’re getting a deal.

And product samples like these eyelashes are kinda worthless.  Why do we  ladies in the United States want to try eyelashes from another country that we can’t re-purchase if we love them?  I want stuff I can try and buy!  I don’t know…I just feel kinda duped.  Like we’re gonna start getting things bought or made in bulk overseas for pennies.  Or “gift cards” that nobody wants or uses like we’ve gotten several times before.

Maybe I’m overreacting.  If you got this month’s MyGlam bag, let me know what you thought.

  1. I predicted that MyGlam would be iffy so I took advantage of their first, customer-luring bag and then promptly cancelled. This month’s bag looks especially disappointing though. :c I would suggest trying Perversion though!

  2. I absolutely love perversion and I have really oily eyelids. That really seems like the only product I would use out of everything in this month’s myglambag. Hopefully next month’s samples are better!

  3. I agree, try perversion, and set or smudge with a black eyeshadow if you have to. (You have some WnW palettes with black in them, no?)

    I was so tempted to subscribe the MyGlam, but never did. And I am so glad that I didn’t! I can’t believe how terrible some of the bags have been!

    • Yeah, I still have to test out the Perversion eyeliner with and without black eyeshadow over it. MyGlam started out with a bang but are quickly sinking low. On the other hand, Birchbox is really stepping it up! Can’t wait for May’s Gossip Girl Birchbox!

  4. Ok so I buy this subscription to MyGlam back in January and I am still a subscriber. The bags are ok. Marchs bag sucked and no other word can describe it. Aprils bag was good but the Urban Decay liner was the only good thing in it. The lip quench you had to squeeze so hard just to get some out. The false eyelashes were ok but like some of the others I did not use them because when you buy something from outside of the country you donot know what you are getting. I am thinking about going with Glossybox yes it cost more than the others but the samples are actually bigger and are definately deluxe. Only difference is the price which is $21 verses $10 but since I have Birchbox and a Myglam I want be out of any money and the samples are actually worth it.

    • I have a feeling MyGlam is on its way out for me, I’m still waiting on May’s bag to make my final decision. Glossybox looks good too, I may have to give it a try. Thanks for stopping by!
