Um...yeah. I hate to say it, but I'm a little unhappy for a number of reasons. First of all, for a Valentine's Day theme, every product I received seemed a little drab for Valentine's Day, except for the cute little makeup bag itself. Visually, what I received was a little different than what I had expected from the sneak peak on MyGlam's site:
Meh, I guess I can't blame them for making the advertising look more exciting than the actual product. I mean, that's advertising, right? I guess I'm more bummed because I expect a little more glamour for a Valentine's Day bag. I mean, how am I supposed to impress my date with skincare products? Where's the glam in something that someone can't even see? Also, I didn't receive my bag until 7 days AFTER Valentine's Day. Too little too late. There were many other bloggers that received their MyGlam Bags several days ago. I know they were trying to time their shipping so that customers nationwide would receive their bags at the same time, but it's a little ridiculous that I literally live 15 minutes away from their shipping warehouse and didn't receive my bag until today.
So here's what I got:
I'm guessing that's a moisturizer and some sort of mask? Boooooooooooooring!
And yet ANOTHER mask...ho hum...
Cool! Shine control product! I'm actually excited about this one. Crossing my fingers that it helps with my oily t-zone!
Chocolate? I guess it's a nice Valentine's Day gesture.
NYX Roll-On Shimmer for eyes, face, and body. The only actual color cosmetic item I received was the dullest color imaginable! A muddy brownish shade with bronze shimmer called "Chestnut". Ugh, forgive me for not jumping for joy, but I can't imagine a shade less Valentine-worthy. Also, the roll-on application is a little awkward and lacks precision. Oh, and for eyes, face and body? Eyes, maybe. But why would I want to roll-on poo-colored shimmer anywhere else?
$100 gift card for NuMe hair styling products. This is actually kind of worth it. Although I don't really use flat irons and I'm pretty pleased with the curling iron that I do own. I could buy a nice gift with it, or save it just in case because it doesn't expire till August.
Alright, so I guess that's my February MyGlam "haul". I almost liked last month's better, but none of the bags I've received have been as nice as the first one. Now I'm really starting to believe that the premier Myglam bag was the "hook" to garner interest and snare subscribers. I really hope I'm wrong. I'll give it one more month, but if I'm not impressed, I think I might cancel my subscription. Stay posted for detailed reviews of this month's bag! (even though we're less than thrilled, I might be surprised)
