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.
