May Birchbox vs. myglam Bag

This month, I received the Gossip Girl Birchbox edition. I would like to share what I received with you. Let’s start:

Here is what came in it:

. Beautyblender Cleanser [not sure how this going to be beneficial to me since I do not own a beauty blender yet. It would have been nice if it came with one 🙂 ]

. BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline Eau de Toilette Spray [i am not fond of those mini tube perfumes]

. Dr. Jart + Waterfuse BB Cream [interested in trying this BB]

. Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in Satin Taupe [not bad, I have to test it and see how good it is during the day]

. Twistband Hair Tie [this is the second time they send one of those ties]

. A Notecrad [very random!]

Now, onto the myglam bag and what it had:

. Philosophy Love Sweet Love Spray Fragrance 

. Studio Gear Complete Color Lipstick in Cinnabar [not too fond of the color 😦 ]

. Miss Beauty Nail Bling [ it claims that it lasts for 10 days on. W shall find out!]

. Myglam Concealer Brush & Defining Eyeliner Brush [two more brushes to add o the collection]

I feel like this months subscriptions were not that great. I wish the Studio Gear lipstick came in a different shade. Anywho, I love receiving those two little packages in the mail every month. It is something to look forward to! 

Have you heard about the GlossyBox and how it is coming to the USA. Anyone else interested in that?

MyGlam Bag

I just received my second MyGlam goodie bag!

This is actually their second bag released as they are brand new company. And OMG this tiny bag has some great products. I am impressed already.

I am super impressed by MyGlam picks, especially this month. They definitely seem more caring and thoughtful than the other monthly subscription Birchbox. I am not sure if this is because the owners behind it are YouTube Guru’s that know what they are talking about, or maybe because it is still a brand new company, but either way I hope it continues in that way because they are doing a great job.

If you are not familiar with MyGlam or Birchbox is, let me explain a little. it is a monthly subscription of $10 that you can either commit to or do on a monthly bases whenever the budget allows. What it offers is a bag full of mini or even full size products, depending on how lucky you are. The idea is to introduce you to new products and open your eyes to other brands. The reason I love it is because it is only $10 for a great selection of products that all together retail for at least $20. I also love to receive a surprise package in my mail every month and look forward to opening it. Come on, Makeup as a surprise?? Who would ever say no to such thing?!

Happy Monday All!
