MyGlam Bag – March 2012

MyGlam Bag - March 2012

After such a wonderful March Birchbox, this month’s MyGlam bag just didn’t do it for me at all.  I’m not excited about one product in this month’s bag which is really unusual for me.  I can usually find the positive in at least one item but gosh, not this one.  I really could do without everything.

One thing we got which was so-so was a crease brush in it’s own hot pink case.  It seems to be ok quality wise but I can’t understand why they wouldn’t have paired that with some eyeshadow of some sort.  It would have been a lot more exciting and fun if we had something to try the brush with.  Especially for someone who doesn’t have a lot of makeup, that would have been a real treat.

Three things were sample packs which you can get pretty much anywhere: 

Murad Eye Lift Perfector (0.015oz).  – No info to go with it, just a random tiny packet.

Pur-lisse Pur-Protect daily moisturizer (0.14oz) – Pretty self explanatory here.  Contains SPF 30 and white tea to calm sensitive skin.

Keracolor Color Enhancing Leave in Treatment (0.17oz) – Enhances, protects, strengthen and hydrates the hair.

The only full size item in the bunch is a Pur-Lisse Pur-Lip Comfort daily lip nourisher.  Contains mango and shea butters to hydrate the lips.  Feels pretty nice on my lips with zero scent or flavor.

Lastly is a Dermstore coupon code for $25 off any order of $50 or more.  I’ve never purchased from this website before but I probably will just to use the coupon at some point but it’s only good until May 1st.

Everything came packaged in a cute multi-colored floral bag which I thought was perfect for spring.  I really don’t like skincare oriented sample bags so I’m hoping next month is more makeup geared.  They suckered us in with their very first bag which was all makeup and then switched to hardly any makeup.  Really disappointing to me.

Did you get this month’s MyGlam bag?  If you did, were you happy with what you received?

I’m with you on this Glam Bag. I signed up after seeing your review of the first one and I’m just underwhelmed. Like you, I’m more of a make-up girl and not so big on the skin care. I end up giving most of it away. The gift certificates are nice, I just wish there was more color. I’m not sure I got any full size products this time. I didn’t get the lip treatment, I got the bronzer, which I doubt I’ll use. I was much more impressed with my Birchbox this month than the last couple, I hope they keep it up.

I think they made a big mistake by making the first bag all makeup. Judging by other comments on other sites and Facebook, everyone, including myself, signed up initially thinking it was mainly going to be makeup. So when they veered from that, not many were happy. And now it keeps getting worse. I really hope next month is better.

The hilarious thing is, you actually didn’t receive a full size of the lip comfort. I’m in the same boat as you. The full size is actually .5oz ($22 value); My Glam actually sent out both sizes in the bags, so some got the full size while others got the smaller size. Not a great decision on their part at all. Sigh.

Really!? Well, that stinks. I just assumed it was full size. That’s not really fair that some people got the full size and some didn’t. Not cool MyGlam. :(
