April MyGlam Bag

Alright, I know this is a bit late! I've been a MyGlam subscriber since they began in December of last year. I figure I can stray a little from the polish path and review fun things like this too :) I love trying new products of any kind, so I might as well share my thoughts and experiences with my readers!

I got this Glam bag in the mail a while ago, but I haven't really gotten a chance to explore it much until now. Better late than never - but I suppose we also have a good couple weeks before May's bag comes.

April's theme: Girls' Night Out. The bag is pretty cute, being metallic pink. It's a bit thin in material compared to the previous bags, but it's still pretty nice. I'm starting to get a pile of makeup bags going from subscribing so long though! I may have to put polishes from giveaways in some and mail them out to other people.

The bag seemed a little empty upon opening, but that's because this month's items are pretty small and lightweight. As far as the contents of the bag go:

  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil - in Junkie (a dark green)
  • DermStore Lip Quench - Moisture Infused Lip Treatment
  • All-Belle Eyelashes
  • MyGlam All-over eyeshadow brush and eyeliner brush

I actually like what I got in my bag. I don't really have an extensive brush collection yet, so I really can't compare the quality to any other brands. I'm still learning the art of "expert" makeup application, so I don't feel comfortable enough to critique them too much! Although it is nice that they have added more brushes - last month's bag had one brush inside of a case, and now they're beginning to fill up the extra space will a full collection of brushes. I like the idea :)

The brushes are pink and have the "MyGlam" logo printed toward the end. One is a rounded eyeshadow brush, and the other is a thin angled eyeliner brush.

The UD eyepencil is pretty nice - I really have never used colored eyeliner, so it's a treat! I typically use black like most women, but the dark green is actually a very nice color. Like most UD pencils, it does indeed glide on, and the color isn't sheer at all. I'll use it! 

The DermStore Lip Quench is also great. It's actually very thick inside the tube, so when I squeeze it, I'm afraid it's going to burst! Other than that, the thickness is a bit weird on my lips, but definitely adds a layer of protection and moisture. It isn't clear too, and has a very sheer yet shimmery pinkish/purple color to it. The scent is also amazing - it smells very fruity, and I keep getting a whiff of pineapple from it! 

As far as the All-Belle lashes go, I have never used false lashes before! I haven't used these ones yet, but it will be an experience for me when I do. I have pretty long lashes to begin with, so it should be interesting. The box isn't in English, but I'm assuming that they are meant to be used a few times, and then discarded. 

All in all, I'm pretty pleased with my MyGlam bag, as usual. They've taken some turns and have gone back to more makeup after other subscribers were unpleased with February's bag and some others. I'll remain a subscriber and see what else they have to offer in the future!
