March 2012 My Glam Bag

I received my second My Glam bag in the mail yesterday and I'm a little disappointed with this bag. It feels like they are grasping at straws a bit in terms of what products to put into the bags. I guess at least the bag is kinda cute.

This months bag included:
Repair and Restore Themed
Derm Store Care Package
Pur-lisse Pur-Protect SPF 30 Essential Daily Moisturizer, Murad Eye Lift Perfecter, and *Dermstore $25 gift card

Foundational Elements
3Lab Perfect Cleansing Foam OR Pur-lisse Pur-Lip Comfort Daily Lip Nourisher OR Murad Absolute Bronzing Boost SPF 15

Keracolor Color Enhancing Leave-In Treatment

MyGlam exclusive Classic Crease Brush & Case

*The gift card again has restrictions and you must spend $50 in order to use the $25 off code, which isn't bad considering it's for Dermstore and I can easily spend $50 there.

I received the 3Lab Perfect Cleansing Foam and I'll be reviewing that in another post since its a deluxe sample size I'll be able to give you guys good feedback on it. I'll also be reviewing the Keracolor in another review but from now on I will not be reviewing the teeny sample packets they send out as I feel those do not give you enough product to actually do good review on whether or not it works.

Here are some shots of the brush, I find this is a low quality brush that would be comparable to some drugstore brush brands. It's no where near as soft as my Sigma brushes but I didn't expect it to be. I'm not really sure what it's made of but my best guess is some sort of natural hair. It came with a brush holder as well that is just as low quality as the brush. These both smelled horrible when I took them out of the package, they have since aired out a bit but they still smell like gasoline. To be honest I think they would have been better off leaving this out all together and putting that money towards something else product wise.

*Update March 22nd, 2012 I ended up throwing away the makeup bag because after storing it in my makeup box everything ended up smelling horrible and the smell was coming off the bag the most so I tossed it major fail MyGlam. The brush and holder still smell even after cleaning them if they end up stinking up my makeup box they are the next to go.



I'll stay with My Glam for a few more months but if things don't turn around in a hurry I think I will be unsubscribing.

Are you a Myglam Subscriber, what's your take on the March 2012 Glam Bag?

  1. hmm...I unsubscribed to MyGlam before they could charge me for March, and I'm kind of glad I did. I don't think I would like this bag. They're including barely any makeup samples (again!), and only one deluxe size sample. Eek! I was kind of disappointed that I wouldn't get the blending brush, but it sounds like I'm not missing anything haha

    1. Yeah your really not missing anything lol I'm hoping because they brought some beauty bloggers out to talk to them about there downfalls and how they can improve on the bags that they will turn around but I wont hold my breath ! lol I know makeup samples are more expensive but that first bag set the bar really high for them with all the makeup.

  2. I will have to wait till Wednesday to get my bag from my parents house unfortunately =(. But from what I'm seeing I'm sure there's no rush. MyGlam did say they plan their bags months ahead of time, so I think I will stick with my subscription until the middle of summer and allow them sometime for change.

    1. Aww yeah your not missing much I wouldn't rush to get it. I heard that as well so I'm going to stick it out for a few more months I think they are really going to have to wow they customers who have been with them since the first bag in order to keep them tho :(

  4. I read another review that basically said the same thing. The March shipment was blah.... If it makes you feel better, the March birchbox I just received was blah as well. I was really looking forward to it as you had the option to select the regular or the teen vogue box. I picked the teen vogue to try something new...not digging it at all....

  9. Someone should come up with a better bag, I'm sure the rest of us that do pay this amount every month wouldn't mind paying a bit more for better products. But for March, I think Birchbox > MyGlam. Kind of over my glam, it's a lot of skin care products, but I know what works for me and don't really like trying new skin care products, especially when they're just drugstore stuff. I wish they would include nail polishes.

    1. I agree there was a lot of hype surrounding this company and they started off great but have been a let down so far.

  10. I'm subscribed to Green Grab Bag and they haven't disappointed me yet. I had Birchbox before but I unsubscribed, they weren't' sending good samples anymore.

    These samples that you got aren't too bad, and the brushes are really cheap looking though...
    And the bag...I mean it's supposed to be "Glam" bag...not flower spring plastic looking bag. As "glam" I would have expected something with glitter or so..no?
