My Glam May Review

 

In May, I signed up for a MyGlam subscription for the first time and I was pretty happy with it, though I’m super-late posting about it because I’ve already received my June MyGlam bag.  MyGlam is a beauty subscription program in which you receive 4-5 full-size or deluxe beauty products in a little cosmetic bag for $10 per  month.  When you sign up, you take a quiz so they can customize your Glam bag.  You can cancel your subscription at any time, so it’s pretty low risk!  It would also be a fun gift idea for a friend or sister!

May MyGlam Bag:
The makeup pouch was cute, but it has an awful smell.  I’ve had it airing out for a month, but it smells weird and chemically, so I’ll probably throw it out – it can’t be healthy.

 
  • Philosophy Love Sweet Love Spray Fragrance – this has a nice clean scent – sweet,  but not coying.  The retail price is $42, which isn’t terrible for a large perfume.  I don’t wear perfume all of the time, so I never really buy big bottles.  I just use a sample-size when I do wear it. 
  • Studio Gear Complete Color Lipstick in Warm Embrace – I worried that this was going to be a horrible shade, but it really isn’t!  I actually love it!  It’s definitely redder/darker than what I usually wear, but that’s because I never find a red that I like.  It claims to plump your lips, though I can’t say I noticed a difference.  I’ve worn this several times since I got it and would consider buying it again for $15.  This is a full-size product, so it exceeded the price for the subscription and made it well worth it.  The picture below is me wearing this shade – and no other makeup.  I also didn’t apply the lipstick very neatly, but it still gives you an idea of the shade.  
  • Miss Beauty Nail Bling – These nail stickers are cute, but I haven’t worn them yet so I don’t know how easy they’ll be to apply.  I feel like they’ll be a little much to wear on all fingers, as sparkly pink hearts, but they’ll be cute as an accent finger.  I couldn’t find the price of these, but I’d guess $10 or less.  I probably wouldn’t buy this design/color, but if these wear well, they’d be fun occasionally.
  • myglam Concealer Brush & Defining Eyeliner Brush – To be honest, I don’t really know which brush is which because they aren’t labeled.  One is a thin fine brush which could work well for applying small dots of concealer or for a fine line on your eyes, and the other is a thin, stiff brush, which would also work for both applications.  I’ve used these, but I still haven’t determined which is which.  I think I used the stiffer one for eyelining and will probably keep it that way since I don’t really do a very thin line on my eyes.  These are an exclusive myglam product, so I don’t think you can purchase these separately, but I probably wouldn’t anyway.

Final thoughts?  I felt like MyGlam compared pretty similarly to Birchbox – some hits and some things I wouldn’t purchase, but I really love this lipstick.  After June, I’ll pick one or the other to get for the month instead of both, but I haven’t really decided which yet.  I may do another month of MyGlam since I’ve already received several months of Birchbox – or I’ll try to find a new one.  Have you tried any beauty sample subscriptions?  What did you think?

Disclosure:  I purchased the MyGlam subscription on my own and am under no obligation to post about it.
