After being a Glam bag subscriber for the last 10 months, I wanted to give a honest review thusfar.
Overall every single bag has been good. I wouldn't say I LOVED every single bag, but the thrill of not knowing what I would be getting next month, kept me hanging.
What I received in my bag:
Mirabella Prime for Face and eyes
This was the first item I tried out from the bag, and lets just say, my first impression was bad.
Tons of oil came out all over the back of my hand. I'm thinking that it was the product separating, so I shook it up and tried again. It was a more of a solid consistency and gel-like mousse formula. It wasn't too bad. I used it to prime my face and I honestly can't say if it made my foundation last longer, but it DID help blend out my foundation.
Be a Bombshell cosmetics Lipgloss in Hot Mess:
I feel like we keep getting the same kind of lipglosses. Either bright red, or hot pink. I would like to try something out of my comfort zone like a gold shimmer or lilac lipstick. With that being said, I wasn't disappointed with this lipglosses performance. It was pigmented, creamy and long lasting. I even compare it to my MAC Russian Red. In the video I have swatches and even say that they might be dupes. If you look VERY VERY closely at the MAC lipglass, it has tiny fine milled shimmer in it. The be a bombshell is more of a creme.
NYX Ultra Pearl mania pigment in Silver pearl:
These pigments are AH-MAZE-ZING! They pack a punch, they are a great value for your money, they have great shades, and they last forever!
The only dislike I had with this product was that the opening was so tiny and the formula is thick that when you go to tap some out, too much comes out and it becomes a mess, FAST!
Urban Decay 24/7 glide on pencils in Zero:
I cannot say enough good things about Urban Decay. I love everything about their brand and their whole outlook on make-up. These pencils provide easy, superb, hassle-free application that lasts all day and will not budge. It lasts through showers, sleeping and a night out on the town. If I had one brand that I could be supplied with for the rest of life, it would have to be Urban Decay.
Mai Coutoure St.Barts Highlighting papers:
The gem of the bag for sure.
These peachy pink papers are sure to please. On my golden skin tone, these come off almost as the Benefit High beam highlighter. I like this one so much more because it has a peachy tint to it that makes it a A+ rating in my book, thus meaning, I would buy these sheets again.
They also offer facial oil blotting papers, foundation powder papers, blush sheets and more! I cannot wait to go to a Nordstroms to see in person their whole line.
If you would like to see what I think of this bag and more, please watch below!
If you would like to subscribe, I know that subscriptions are open, but for a limited amount of time so hurry and sign up. It is $10 a month.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all are having a fabulous week! I can't believe time is flying by!
For all those effected by the Sandy elementary school shooting, my heart goes out to you. I have cried for the parents who lost their little ones, not knowing they would not see their kids after dropping them off for school. Please pray for them and those lost, because in this time of need, we must remember we are a community and are here to help each other.
