I’ve had a chance to use and review all of the products from my May Box and decide on how much I liked them. So now it is time to do my box wrap up.  In case you don’t remember, here is a summary of the Awesomeness level:

Box Awesomeness Level Review (AL)

  • 5 points for an item that surpasses everything else I’ve tried and becomes my #1 choice for what role it fulfills
  • 4 points for an item that becomes added to my permanent collection of cosmetics and I will repurchase
  • 3 points for an item that joins my “I might buy this again” list
  • 2 points for an item I finished or will finish the entire sample of but in the end decided not to re-purchase
  • 1 point for an item that I tried and immediately threw out/gave away
  • 0 points if the item was a duplicate of something from a previous bag/box/kit that only scored a 1 in that box – meaning I knew enough to not even bother with trying it.
  • Don’t forget that I subtract 1/2 point for samples that can only be used 2 or fewer times.

May Inaugural Glossy Box – First Impressions May 8, 2012

Today I bring you the May Glossy Box.  This inaugural box was not actually for sale, but instead was sent to some select bloggers (not me) and some contest winners (me).  I entered to win a free Glossy Box – and I won!!!! That’s the first thing I’ve won over the internet and it made me giddy. I know that it was primarily to drive hype over the upcoming subscriptions, but I’m happy anyway.  Even though I received this free, as a prize, you will still get my honest, sometimes blunt opinion. Ok so what is in the box?

April MyGlam Bag – Initial Impressions April 13, 2012

Hurray – I received my MyGlam Bag today. I had already gotten the sneak peeks off their Facebook page, and today I looked online too thinking I wouldn’t get mine till mid-next week (as their tracking number told me) so I discovered the remaining item through that.  Anyway, I’m pretty thrilled with this bag.  This was not amazing but it was definitely a really nice one compared to one off the previous ones.  I’ve already tried two of the products and am in love.

So, what was in it?
