MyGlam: The May Glam Bag

May 2012 Glam Bag

Here it is! My May Glam Bag. If you follow MyGlam on Facebook then you have already seen the sneak peeks for this month. The theme for May is "Love is in the Air" and that is definitely apparent in this Glam Bag. The bag itself is covered in pink kiss prints and there is lots of pink, hearts and "love" inside. I just got it in the mail a little while ago and decided to open it right away and share photos. This is just going to be a quick look inside my May Glam Bag since I haven't had the opportunity to try any of the products yet. 

The description card for the May Glam Bag
As always, there is a card inside describing the products included in this month's bag. If you click to enlarge the image above, you can read the descriptions. 

Studio Gear lipstick in Pink Blush
Studio Gear Complete Color Lipstick
My Glam describes this as "Rich color that plumps and hydrates for perfectly kissable lips." The shade I got is called Pink Blush and I have swatched it for you below. The brand sounds vaguely familiar, so I googled it and discovered that they sell it at Ulta. I have probably seen the line there before but haven't paid much attention to it. They didn't have this shade on the Ulta website, but the lipsticks are $15 each.
Here are a quick shot of the name of the lipstick on the box and a swatch of it on my hand. I'm not sure the lipstick is a color I'll love on myself but I will at least try it and see.

Philosophy Love Sweet Love Fragrance Sample

According to MyGlam, "Feel smitten and irresistibly pretty with this flirty, fruity fragrance." It does smell fruity to me, maybe a little citrus in there. This is also sold at Ulta and the full size bottle (2 oz.) is $42. Sephora sells Philosophy too, as do many other retailers. It is pretty widely available. I always love their packaging on their shower gels. They often include recipes for the baked goods their scents mimic. I always thought that was a really cute idea. I actually think I will wear this perfume today since I haven't put any on yet.

Miss Beauty Nail Bling

MyGlam describes these as "Nail art that will make you fall head over heels in an instant." These are nail decals that claim to last up to 10 days and apply the same way the Sally Hansen polish strips do. There are many brands of nail decals like these of all different price ranges, you can find them everywhere from the drugstore to the mall. I haven't ever tried anything like them before, so I might give these a shot. However, I'm not a huge fan of the pink hearts. It just seems a bit "little girl" to me.

MyGlam makeup brushes
MyGlam Concealer and Defining Eyeliner Brushes
The MyGlam brushes were a fun idea and seem to be pretty high quality. These are the last 2 in the set of signature pink brushes. I like the size of the concealer brush, it is a little smaller than the E.L.F. one I currently use so I think it will come in handy. We already got the angled eyeliner brush in the last Glam Bag, so maybe this one is more for smudging the liner out? Its actually a great size for using a matching powder to go over any liner you already applied, perhaps I will use it for that.

Overall, I expect I will try out 4 of the 5 things included in my May Glam Bag. The only think I'm not sure about are those nail decals. The bag did not include any extra offers or discounts this month. Thats fine with me, I never remember to use the coupon codes and special offers anyway.

Did you get your May Glam Bag yet? What did you get that was different from mine? What did you think of it? I hope those of you that are MyGlam subscribers enjoy your bags this month!

If you aren't a MyGlam member and want to be, make sure you register so you can be added to the waitlist to reserve your spot when more subscriptions open. Good Luck!
