Review: June My Glam

Wednesday June 20th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

Don’t forget the giveaway for this bag is located at this post. I haven’t had as much of an opportunity to promote is this time around :x Giveaway ends in 10 days and is open internationally. I know a lot of people outside the US are interested in getting their hands on a glam bag~

I apologize for the lack of updates lately. There’s been several things going on, both good and bad, and I’ve been preoccupied with other things. I’m very behind in reviews. Minus my Glossy Box, all of my subscription services have arrived. I received my My Glam bag early last week. They surprised everyone this month by shipping out a bit earlier than expected! I’m not too sure if this will be a permanent change or if they happened to get everything ready ahead of time this month and wanted everyone to get their bags as soon as possible. Either way, thanks My Glam!

(Agh…my mouse is giving me problems, so annoying @_@ !!)

Bag Contents for June include:

  • Philosophy take a deep breath Moisturizer
  • Living Proof frizz nourishing styling cream
  • Marbella Permanent Eye Liner Pen
  • NYX Round Lipstick in Chloe
  • This month’s bag lived up to My Glam’s claim of amazing! Finally 4-5 deluxe/travel sized products as promised and no tiny packets :)

    This month’s bag had a little bit of a change up. It’s nice to know they have other design ideas in mind other than the standard zip up bags. I wonder what else we’ll be getting in the future. While, I’m glad to see a different style bag..I’m not incredibly fond of this one. The gold glitters do fall off (you can see specks already around the bag in the image) and the bag itself isn’t very sturdy. Inside is a very plain canvas type material. This will be great to hold smaller stuff, such as card, pens, etc. Anything larger will cause the bag to collapse a bit and become clumsy.

    Marbella Permanent Eye Liner Pen [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $19.00
    My Glam Value: $19.00

    Description: Marbella Semi Permanent Cosmetics offers The best eyeliner ever! This felt-pen eyeliner lasts longer than any other liner – pen, gel, cream, pencil, powder and it lasts flawlessly. No smudging, cracking, smearing. It stays on precisely where you put it until you are ready to take it off!. If you use rich eye creams, have oily eyelids, live in a humid climate, party, work out or rub your eyes often and so forth, this pen is ideally for you. Effects are perfect, doesn’t look so bold as a liquid liner; it actually looks softer, like pencil but your eyes will look dramatically stunning!

    Marbella Eye liners are formulated to provide rich, consistent color using organic ingredients that have no irritancy effect. They are comfortable to apply and the felt tip allows for a precise application. Marbella 24hr Eyeliner can be used to create a sharp line or a softer, smoky effect. Marbella 24hr Eyeliner offers more than 24 hours long-lasting wonder and won’t cake or streak.

    The reviews that I’ve seen on this eyeliner have been either love it or hate it. Personally, I don’t know if I particularly care for this eye liner. It’s not as permanent or waterproof as the liner says but it’s possible I didn’t give it enough time to fully dry. Some people have been able to achieve amazing results with the eyeliner while others have had the same problem of it smudging quickly. It’s recommended that you do not use this eye liner on your waterline if you wear contacts as they will stain the lenses. The eyeliner is duo tip so once you run out, just flip the brush part over and you have a brand new eye liner!

    Philosophy take a deep breath Moisturizer [Purchase]

    Actual Value: 2 oz ($34.00)
    My Glam Value: 0.4 oz ($6.80)

    Description: Breath new life into your skin with take a deep breath oil-free energizing oxygen gel cream moisturizer. this lightweight hydrator detoxifies and helps protect for a healthy-looking glow.

    I love moisturizers! and this one didn’t disappoint.

    (I probably should have tested the eye liner last)

    Philosophy’s take a deep breath moisturizer comes in a gorgeous light blue/green color. It’s lightly scented so anyone who doesn’t care too much for scented face products will probably like this one, it’s not fragrant at all. The moisturizer goes on coolly and smoothly. It makes a great base for makeup or just day to day wear. As an added bonus, it’s oil free (and refreshing)!

    Living Proof frizz nourishing styling cream [Purchase]

    Actual Value: 24 oz ($95.00)
    My Glam Value: 2 oz ($7.92)

    Description: A velvety cream that provides optimum frizz reduction and a touch of conditioning. Living Proof Straight Making No Frizz Styling Cream for Medium to Thick Hair offers the first new anti-frizz technology in over 30 years. No Frizz addresses the two causes of frizz—humidity and friction. It provides a superior, extremely thin humidity barrier on hair, while reducing surface friction. The result is the most effective, lightweight frizz fighter on the market today. Hair is left sleek and manageable without becoming greasy or heavy.

    This should have been expected once My Glam did their Living Proof challenge contest :) I’m very glad to see they provided everyone with an awesome sized sample of this. I haven’t had a chance to fully test out this product but it’s been receiving great reviews.

    I’m indifferent on the smell of it. I’m don’t hate it but I’m not crazy about it either. It’s slightly sweet and not overpowering but I’m more partial to sweeter hair products. This goes on hair very well and helps to control frizz, my hair will definitely appreciate this later.

    NYX Round Lipstick in Chloe [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $4.00
    My Glam Value: $4.00

    Description: NYX Round Lipstick is our classic lipstick for all-year round. The mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvet texture, saturated color and it resists wear and smudging. It’s your go-to lipstick. From Pure Nude to Pink Lyric to Chic Red, Round Lipstick is available in a jaw-dropping 126 shades.

    126 shades o_O Some of them are gorgeous, this is a great lipstick for the very affordable price of only $4.00. I’m just glad I did not get another brown~ish colored lipstick this time.

    The color, unfortunately, does not go too great with my skin tone and the way I dress. It’s a VERY bright pink, I almost think it looks a bit scary on me. I’ll play around with the lipstick later. I think I can make it work if I dab it on with a brush for a lighter color and finish up with a lip gloss.

    Total Value: $37.72

    This was a super satisfying combination of items although I don’t have a lot of use for half the items. It’s still nice to have extras on hand and to try new colors. I never know what pops up in the future. July’s bag is supposed to continue a great streak so we’ll see how things turn out for My Glam during their second half of the year.
