MyGlam December Bag
I literally just opened my first MyGlam bag and I already love the contents! I am already familiar with most of the brands & products inside, but I think the value of this bag is amazing. It is only $10 a month (or $100 if you sign up for a year at once) and this came with all of the following:
*FULL SIZE* NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul
*FULL SIZE* Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin
Deluxe Sample of Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original
Sample of Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara
Sample of Mai Couture Blush Papier
(FULL SIZE?) of Mai Couture Salicylic Acid Blemish Control Blotting Papiers
My Opinions/First Impressions:
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream: I love almost all (if not all!) the NYX products I own. I have not used this product before but it smells delicious, like cupcake batter. Istanbul is definitely a color I would have picked for myself, it is a pretty pinkish nude shade. One of my favorite YouTubers keeps talking about this product, so I am really excited to try this!
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin: I have this color in my Naked Palette. It is a beautiful champagne color that makes a great highlight, inner corner or all over lid color. This is a very versatile color and it is supposed to be one of Urban Decay's best selling shades.
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original: I already have a couple sample size tubes and a full size one of this product. I use it every day and it makes such a world of difference when it comes to the staying power of eyeshadow. I'll always happily accept another travel size of this! It is definitely one of my holy grail products.
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara: This product is a fairly new discovery for me. I first tried it about a month ago when I purchased a Tarte kit that included it. Prior to trying this mascara, I was pretty convinced that BUXOM Lash Mascara would always be my holy grail mascara. I still absolutely love BUXOM Lash, but I am finding room in my makeup routine to use this mascara on occasion. This one looks so natural I love to use it when I want to go for the no makeup look and just wear foundation and mascara.
Mai Couture Blush Papiers/Blotting Papers: These are the only new products to me in the bunch, but I have to say I am intrigued by blush papers. My Glam Bag came with a postcard that has a couple sheets of blushing paper on the back. They look really orangey to me, so I'm not sure I will like them but it is a very interesting concept. I have never used blotting papers, but I guess now I have them if I want to start!
OVERALL: As I said above, I think this is an excellent value for $10. There was no charge for shipping, and you get everything above including the little makeup bag. It also came with a coupon code for $15 off the Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV. The full size NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream retails for $6 and the full size Urban Decay eyeshadow retails for $17. That is already a $23 value not factoring in the approximate value of the sample sized and makeup bag. I hope the bags continue to be this great every month, because as of right now MyGlam Bags are a solid win!
