May 2012 My Glam Bag

 I was coming in from brunch and low and behold there was my May My Glam Bag sitting in my gate entrance waiting for me. Now I thought that was a bit odd because I never got a shipping confirmation saying that it was on it's way but none the less here it is!

This Months bag includes:
Love is in the air Themed

Philosophy Love Sweet Love Spray Fragrance
Now it says that is is a "spray" but it is not in a spray sample bottle it has just a normal perfume vial cap on the end. It does smell quite nice tho and isn't as sweet as some of their other perfumes.

Studio Gear Complete Color Lipstick
I received mine in the color Repentance which is a dusty pink shade with a somewhat pearl finish. It is said to plump and hydrate your lips to make them perfectly kissable, but I'll get back to you guys on that after I try it. Pretty sure this is full size too so that's cool.

Miss Beauty Nail Bling
Silver with Pink hearts they are okay looking not something I would have bought for myself but this is a sample service after all so isn't that the point? However I don't think these are age appropriate for me but who knows I might give them a try. they are textured and feel plastic and bumpy.

MyGlam Concealer Brush & Defining Eyeliner Brush
These are quite small and I'm not sure which one is which to be honest with you. The note card says "Two final signature pink brushes to complete your myglam collection" so does that mean they have gotten the message that I don't like these?! I hope that indeed means less brushes more actual samples for future bags. Also not sure what these are made of as the card doesn't say.


I'm a bit on the fence about this bag I don't hate it but I don't love it either. The big flops for me in this one are the Nail Bling and tee tiny Brushes. I will definitely use the perfume and the lipstick. If they are moving away from the brushes I think I would be happier with the overall content of the bag. I subbed to try out new products not start a brush collection.

Now I've been thinking about cancelling Myglam for awhile now and this is my fourth bag but I'm undecided on that mostly because I"m afraid I'll miss out on a really good bag after all the semi dud bags. I'm now subbed to Birchbox and Glossybox as well so maybe I'll hold onto MyGlam for a little longer and keep hoping that they will blow my mind but I'm not going to hold my breath on that.

It doesn't look like there are any coupon codes yet this month either, as the MyGlam site has not yet been updated to reflect the May bag at the time I'm posting this.

  4. I am not a fan of My Glam. I feel some of the stuff in there (like the brushes) can be bought really cheap from China. I use to sub to them but had a really bad customer service experience and that was that. The other two subs boxes are much more promising than this one! You need to try Little Black Bag!!

    1. I understand I have mixed feeling about it myself but I'm so afraid I'll miss out on something really good lol it's a flaw of mine! I'm sorry you had bad customer service that is one thing I'm a stickler for I haven't had to interact with them yet. I did sign up for Little black bag with your referral link actually but I think it's a little to expensive for me right now so I'm going to have to live vicariously through yours for now ;)

  5. I cancelled my sub to myglam after April bag,well that was my only bag from them and I felt my $10 wasted!anyways the lipstick in this bag looks interesting..rest everything mmm..don't know! Glossybox is definitely better..I won their first glossy box and was quite happy with the content!

  6. "I"m afraid I'll miss out on a really good bag after all the semi dud bags." this is how I stay subscribed to too many beauty boxes!! the 'what if' feeling is a killer, haha.

    1. I know right! It definitely is what is keeping me subscribed lol I think that is a good and bad thing at this point.

  7. i think if i had to choose between glossybox and birchbox and my glam, i would definitely choose glossybox or birchbox. i think the first myglam that was given away was amazing and had great sized products and was really worth the price, but i feel like it was very much a catch to get people hooked, and since then the items have been less than impressive. not to mention, it is really cool you get a free makeup bag along with the box, it is a great marketing idea, and makes glambag a bit different than the other subscription companies, but if the bags are not so well made and frankly not that attractive, the idea of giving away free bags almost works AGAINST the company cos it appears to me, to just be another gimmick. i understand your feelings on not wanting to quit your subscription for fear of missing out, but my personal opinion is that glambag is sort of ripping their customers off :(

    1. I agree Glossybox has promise to be the best of all three but the price is $21 so I would hope it would be better. I have mixed feelings about myglam because I think they could really be great but they have flopped quite a bit. I'm just so afraid of missing out on a great bag (like the December launch bag that I missed) that I stay subbed. Dumb reason I know but I'm such a sucker for stuff like that. I do see your point and I know some customers feel that same way especially for anyone who is tight on funds. I personally feel like I'm at least getting above the value I'm paying for the most part and i have tried things that I wouldn't have before like the false lashes that looked ridiculous on me lol but nonetheless I gave them a try because I had them so I think its fun to get things that are out of my comfort zone like that.

  9. The brushes are made from pony-hair I believe. They mentioned it on their facebook page once.

    1. I had read that once too. There was some discussion on MUT about this before as well I believe two of the other brushes are pony hair and other synthetic. These feel synthetic but I can't confirm that I sent an email asking but haven't heard anything back yet.

  12. I am not yet a myglam subscriber and have seen too many reviews each month where the recipient was less than thrilled with the contents. That being said, I am trying to make the same decision regarding birchbox at the end of this month! The gossip girl box sounds like it'll be a good one, but I've been a subscriber for about 7 months and have only received 2 really good boxes. While it is only $10, the issue is....I am holding on to a lot of samples that I've never used, doesn't look very appealing, and parfum samples that I just simply threw out because I had tried it before and it didn't smell good on me.

    1. Yes I think some sample services are not for everyone. This being my first box I'm really happy with it but I did see some box variations that I would have been less than happy with too even tho they were all well known brands. I feel the same way about myglam most of the time too but I'm so afraid I'm going to miss out! lol

  13. I feel the same about my subscription. This is my fourth bag as well and I don't wanna miss out on that GREAT bag but it seems it's always just one or two bags that are great. The brushes are alright. I really like the first brush we received it works for me. The stickers for the nails are blah. I've tried so many from jamberry, kiss, incoco, etc. and to be honest, I don't know which brush is which. This bag seems so small. I'm bummed but not totally p*ssed. And for birchbox, the items are always a step up brand wise, but sometimes the sizes aren't "deluxe" compared to when BB first launched. I've read about Glossybox and they admitted their following boxes after the USA launch will not contain samples as deluxe sizes. I guess I'm really on the hunt for that one services that send lots of cosmetics. I'm still subbing to Myglam and BB cause its still exciting getting packages in the mail for only $10.

    One last rant, this bag seems more appropriate for Valentines Day.

    1. I guess I've never really liked the brushes because the remind me too much of the very first brush set I ever had which I hated lol. I'm with you on the nail stickers being blah I think if the design had been a bit better and less child like they would have gone over better.

      Yes I read something on Pink Sith she spoke to a CS rep and they told her that there will be 5 products in each box and they will be "travel size" so I'm not sure what their definition of travel size is but I guess we will find out lol I'm just glad they have said they will not be sending out foil packets.

      I know a lot of these services send out skincare, haircare, and perfumes because they are most cost effective to obtain where as makeup is the most expensive type of sample. I too would really love an all makeup sample service with diff things each month but alas not yet.

      haha I thought the same thing too I thought the love is in the air theme was a bit odd for May.

  15. The slightly bigger brush is the concealer brush. They've stated on their fb page that these are the last 2 brushes, so we shouldn't expect any more although there are still people who want to see foundation or kabuki brushes so who knows.

  16. I just did my review on this as well. I am with you with the love/hate I just don't think theres any special enough in this bag. Its a bummer because Im on the fence about stay subscribed. Im not too sure what to do.

  17. I'm kind of glad I unsubscribed to MyGlam after the February bag...I haven't really seen anything I liked that much in the bags I've seen since then. It seems like they're sending so many makeup brushes! I do think that lipstick is super pretty though and that's awesome thats its a full size :)

  19. Mine lipstick wasn't way horrible, but I wouldn't have picked it out for myself. Your lipstick I think is the only one I've seen that's pink! It looks like it'd be a pretty color. The stick on nail bling.. ugh, I'm giving those to my nieces. haha.
