MyGlam has been pretty fun lately with a good mixture of types of products.  They have also been mixing their bags up a bit. This month was a party-ready gold glitter bag. I was really nervous about all the glitter but none of it came off. I can totally see myself using it for a party where I fear that my stuff might get spilled on.

So what came inside this shiny shiny bag of goodness?


Philosophy Take a deep breath moisturizer 
  This light green gel has a clean fresh scent that disappears only moments after being applied.  It feels refreshing and soothing.

I used this for a few days and while it always felt great going on, my skin felt dryer and dryer each day within hours of application.  While I wanted to like it, it just didn’t give me enough moisture.

Would I buy it again? No, I need more moisture

Will I finish the sample? I did, I kept hoping it would get better.

Sample Size: 0.4 oz
Full Size: 2.0 oz
Full Size Price: $34.00
Sample Value: $6.08

NYX Round Lipstick – 629 POWER
I always like getting a lippie or a shadow, so I was excited to see a lipstick included this month.  When I opened my bag I was disappointed to see the lipstick was pepto bismal pink.  I figured I’d still try it so I could review it.

The color is indeed abhorrent. The formula is OK. Keep in mind it is a four dollar lipstick.  It is by no means great – but it lasts for a little while and gives full true to tube color.  It is not moisturizing at all.  Again, though, it is only $4.00

Would I buy this again? No. It just doesn’t do it for me.

Will I finish the sample? No, I don’t like the color and I don’t especially like the formula.

Sample Size: 0.14 oz
Full Size: 0.14 oz
Full Size Price: $3.99
Sample Value: $3.99

Living Proof frizz Nourishing Styling Cream
I have heard such great things about Living Proof products so I was psyched to get to try this anti-frizz cream.  This is different than a lot of the anti-frizz solutions I have tried in that you put it on before you see the frizz, while your hair is still damp.  I have tried it a few times and it does give better results than some of the other treatments I’ve used.

I like this plenty well and may possibly get it again sometime in the future.  I will still keep looking for something that can tame my fly-aways even better.

Would I buy this product again? Maybe, depends on if I find something better before I’m ready to buy.

Will I finish the sample? Yes

Sample Size: 2.0 oz
Full Size: 4.0 oz
Full Size Price: $26.00
Sample Value: $13.00

Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen
Eyeliner is nearly a MUST in my daily makeup routine, and I just hate when it smudges. Seeing “Permanent” made my heart flutter with delight.  Unfortunately then I opened it and tried it. As you can see from my scribbles it is pretty much grey instead of black.  What is more, a couple minutes later I ran my hand over it and it smudged completely. I washed it later and it came off with water only and no scrubbing.

Needless to say, I am far less than impressed.

Save your money and skip this product.

Would I buy this again?No way.

Will I finish the sample? Nope, it is already at the dump.

Sample Size: 0.054 oz
Full Size: 0.054 oz
Full Size Price: $19.00 10.00

Total bag value-$33.07. The bag was a pretty nice value unfortunately the stuff inside just didn’t represent that.  Awesomeness Level: 2+2+3+1=8    8/4= 2 I did not like most of the stuff that was contained in this bag, but I was at least glad I got to try the Living Proof frizz Nourishing Styling Cream.
