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:

Image

. 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:

Image

. 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?

myGalm vs. Birchbox April

So this took me forever to post! i have been super duper busy lately, that there are stacks of post it notes all over my office for things I NEED to do. i have lists and lists of DIY I’d love to do, products that I’ve been wanting to buy and try, and other things i need to organize and build around the house. I will take you with me during all those upcoming projects.

For now, let me share with you what I received in both of my Birchbox and myglam bag for this month. I received my Birchbox on April 11th, and myglam bag got here a day or two after that.

Birchbox had:

Atlier Cologne- Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue

Marula The Leakey Collection- Omega Rich Pure Marula oil

Waleda- pomegranate Firming Night Cream

Zoya- TRUE Spring Collection

Yes To Blueberries- Brightening Facial Towelettes

In myGlam I received:

All-Belle- Eyelashes

Urban Decay- 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil

Dermstore- Lip Quench Moisture Infused Lip Treatment

myglam- All Over Eyeshadow Brush & Eyeliner Brush

Plus the little cute pouch as usual.

for this month, I think they both win!

First of all, they got here around my birthday, which was sweet. Also, they both have decent collection and products that will be useful to me. The lashes from myGlam look pretty, the brushes will be handy and I can add them now the one i received last month. The Waleeda night cream and Yes To Bluberries towelettes will be great for traveling this summer. I just noticed the name of the Zoya nail polish is Farah (aww it means Happiness in Arabic), that’s cute!

The products from both subscriptions are great, and I am pretty happy with this month’s choices.

As promised, here is what I got in MyGlam bag for this month.
1. Cute Hot pink makeup bag.
2. Freeman Enzyme Mask.
3. Premier Moisture Complex & Instant Stretching and Revitalizing Mask.
4. Full size NYX Roll on Shimmer in Light blue.
5. X Out Shine Control.
6. $100 Gift Certificate to NUME.
7. Finally two Ghirardelli chocolate as a valentines treat.

Pretty good selection I think. I haven’t checked NUME website yet and I haven’t heard about it before. I will keep you posted of how I use the $100 gift certificate I got.

Happy Friday love<3

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!
