Looks like I just got my last MyGlam bag in the mail! What's inside?
June MyGlam: Out All Night
The concept of this bag is cute being glittery and resembling a clutch, but the bag itself is pretty cheap. It's rough to the touch because of the glitter, which got all over my hands. It has a silver magnetic closure, but do you see how paper thin the material is? I wasn't particularly happy about storing it away because I'm afraid the glitter is going to get everywhere. But all in all, I appreciate the fact that this bag is different from others in the past. Now onto the contents!

NYX Round Lipstick in Georgia
Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen
Can this name be any longer? This product works to revitalize your skin against harsh environmental factors that we encounter daily. It can be applied both in the morning and evening. It's a gel moisturizer with a light bluish-green tint with little scent (like Cetaphil SPF 15). It blends in quickly, leaving your skin feeling nice and cool. It's not sticky once absorbed either. I'm guessing this would be a lot like Dermalogica's Barrier Repair, a moisturizer that acts as a barrier to protect your skin from the sun while infusing your skin with other goodies. I think the .4 fl oz bottle is a decent size to test this product out. MUCH BETTER than all the other tiny samples from other MyGlam bags!
I've always been a fan of Living proof.'s products. I'm pretty excited to try this out! I'm not usually one to use styling creams because a lot of them can be pretty heavy and sticky on my hair. I've already applied it to my hair and it's actually not too bad. I already love the scent. I can't exactly describe it, but it's refreshing and feels like I'm at the beach! I applied it to my hair with my fingers and it didn't leave my hands feeling grimy. I usually only put Moroccan oil in my hair, so it will take me a while to get through this 2 fl oz bottle.
I was really excited to see the Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen in my bag. This was right up my alley because I am a major sucker for liquid liners. It comes in a semi-matte material with a click cap. I actually LOVE the felt tip because it's the exact type of firmness I prefer when lining my eyes. It has no give and does not bend even at the very tip.
However, I was extremely disappointed by the product itself. The product comes out with a lot of ease (nice and juicy), but the ink is nowhere near as black as I like my liners to be. I've actually been wearing it on my eyes for a few hours, and it's already smearing. I had to put on 4 coats to get a truly black, which isn't something I'd like to do on a daily basis. I also LIGHTLY wet my hand to see if the liner would last on my eye, but it completely smeared. Not so "permanent" as it claims to be. This German product also warns "Don't use with lenses." What does that mean??? Not for contact lens users?
This is a really pretty summery color, but I don't really rock pink shades. I can see this color being really flattering with a lot of looks, but it's just not me! Oh well~
I was actually REALLY surprised by this month's bag. It was pretty decent because all the products came in a decent size. No one-time-use samples or MyGlam brushes... not bad, not bad. Did I cancel my subscription too soon? Should I keep it? What do you guys think?
