OMG! The November Glossy Box is awesome. It has a great selection of products and a few of them are full size. The value for what I received is at least worth $70, how amazing is that when I only paid $20 dollars for it? Oh I love me some bargains.

Epionce restorative hand cream – full size
Illamasqua LTD lip & eye pencil- full size
Nume Style arganics Argan oil
Perfumies solid perfume stick- full size
Skin&CO Roma truffle serum

And not to mentions I also received two gift cards to Nume website for a $100 and a gift card to Skin&CO for a face set sampler!

Stay fabulous,

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.

Smackdown. MYGlam bag vs. BirchBox for March

This post will be direct and straight to the point. What I received from both subscriptions for the month of March and what I liked the most.

Image

Let’s start with MYGlam bag. I received it on March 11th, and here is the product breakdown:

As always, a cute mini makeup bag.

Pur-lisse Pur-Protect SPF30 Essential Daily Moisturizer.

Murad Eye Life Perfector.

DermStore $25 gift card.

Pur-lisse Pur-Lip Comfort Daily Lip Nourisher.

Keracolor Color Enhancing Leave-in treatment.

MyGlam Classic Crease Brush & Case.

What I like:

The Pur-Lisse lip nourisher & the crease brush. The other items will be used only once and normally they don’t capture my attention. Rarely could you judge a product from using it once!

Image

let’s move onto the Birchbox for this month. I received it today, March 12th. Here is the product breakdown:

Color club nail Lacquer in Age of Aquarius.

Harvey Prince Yogini perfume.

Juice Beauty blemish Clearing Cleanser.

Lulu Organics Lavender + Clay Sage Hair Powder

Stila Smokey Eye Card

Tea Forte Skin Smart Teas

What I like:

I am actually very excited to try all these samples from Birchbox. The sample sizes I received are very decent and way better than the MYGlam samples for this month. Now, it’s already spring and it is the time to start taking care of toning and cleansing your body; therefore, I am excited to be trying the Tea Forte packets. I received three flavors: Cucumber Mint, Honey Yuzu, and Cherry Marzipan. They all sound delicious. Oh how much I love tea!

Also, I am always down to trying new dry shampoos, this one smells delicious. The nail polish color is so pretty and perfect for the spring. The Yogini scent is very relaxing and the blemish cleaner is going to be very handy.

Bottom Line, who is the winner in my eyes for this month?

BirchBox is.

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!
