Review and Swatches: June Glam Bag from MyGlam

It sounds silly, but I liked the graphics on this month's card.  It was well designed, very eye catching.
Here is the list of everything included.
And then the bag... When I saw it I liked it. It reminded me of the bags I am getting in one of my Bare Minerals auto-ship plans from QVC. Then, I picked up the bag and I was left with a hand full of glitter :(  Yeah, it sheds glitter like crazy! I will probably give it to my 7 year old niece to play with.
Luckily, everything in this month's bag made up for the bag itself.  I was really happy with the samples this month!

NYX: Round Lipstick in Georgia - Full Size .14 oz - This is my first lipstick from NYX.  I have heard good things and it has been on my "to try" list forever so I was really happy to see this included and in such a flattering shade. It also felt really nice on my lips.  I will certainly be trying more lipsticks from NYX! - Full Size $4.00

artificial light
Natural light (shade)

Marbella: Permanent Eyeliner Pen in 30 Black - This one scared me! Permanent? really? That just sounds scary!  I swatched it on my hand and it stayed put (even through two hand lotion applications) until I washed it off! And, washing it off took a bit of scrubbing.  I wanted to learn more before putting it near my eye so I checked out their website and it is 100% natural, water based and oil & alcohol free. So, I gave it a go.  It lasted all day and wasn't too difficult to remove. I also liked that it is not too stark black.  I love a deep dark black, but I use softer gray back or blue black liners more often. This also appears to be a full size item and sells for $19

Living Proof: Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream - 2 fl oz - This sample came with a card to get another sample set from Living Proof at a discounted price. The consistency is like a leave in conditioner and you apply it liberally to damp hair.  It worked really well, but I prefer a frizz control product that can be used on wet or dry hair so I will enjoy he sample, but probably won't repurchase. - Full Size 4oz. $26

Philosophy: Take a Deep Breath Oil Free Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream Moisturizer - .4 fl oz - This sample came with a card to get free shipping on your next purchase from  If you follow my blog then you know that I love everything by Philosophy! This moisturizer was no exception and it was a very nice size for a sample!  It is very light weight, perfect for summer, and is absorbs quickly into my skin. There is no SPF so I have been using it as a night cream.  I am certainly going to put my free shipping code to good use.  - Full Size 2oz. $34

I am glad I gave Glam Bag from a chance despite their mixed reviews.  I actually liked the products I received this month more than the ones I got in my June Birchbox! You can see that post Here.
