June My Glam

Glammie time again.  This is one of the first monthly subscriptions I subscribed too and I have to say it's been consistently a high value compared to the price.  I have had a few items I didn't care for but I figure better to try them inexpensively than pay full price and not like it.   With My Glam you receive 4-5 samples and a makeup bag for $10 a month with shipping included. If you sign up yearly it's $110 which brings the price down the $9.16 a month with shipping included.


The good:


The brands. They send out brands like Freeman, Urban Decay, NYX, Philosophy, Murad, etc.


The samples.  They seem to include at least one full size sample each month, which is nice.    


The packaging. Each month the products come in a cute makeup bag for all your goodies.


You can cancel anytime with no penalties. Yearly subscriptions don't offer a refund but if you cancel they won't renew when the years up.


The not so good:


Skip a month? There is no option to skip a month. If you don't want to receive a bag that month you have to cancel your subscription and re-sign up if you want to start it up again. This could be a problem if there is a wait list to sign-up.


The price: It works out to $2-$3 an item which is reasonable for a couple of the items but a little overpriced for others.  So far in my experience it's all balanced out. 


The choice: You don't get to pick you items so you may end up with things that you might not use

This months theme is Out All Night.  The bag arrived in their famous hot pink metallic mailer.  This is great packaging on their part, I mean who wouldn't be curious about a hot pink metallic mailer and who wouldn't love to receive one.  


Contents of bag.  Full size price and size in parenthesis.


Cute sparkly gold makeup bag.  This is my favorite bag they have sent out so far.  Love that is snaps in the front.

.4 fl. oz. Philosophy oil-free energizing oxygen gel cream moisturizer. value = $6.80 (2 oz. $34.00)

FULL SIZE NYX Round lipstick in color Vitamin. value = $4.00 

FULL SIZE 2 oz Living Proof no frizz nourishing styling cream.  value = $15.00

FULL SIZE Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen in black. value = $19.00


Wow 3 full size items.  That's awesome.  The total value of this months bag is $44.80 not including the makeup bag.  I was curious about the "permanent" eyeliner.  I mean after all how can it really be permanent?  The company website says it's semi-permanent and will last 24 hours without smudging.  Hmmm...guess I'll have to test that.  I don't have frizzy hair but it tends to get a little dry in the summer so we will see if the styling cream will help with that.       


Verdict - I have a yearly subscription to My Glam so I will finish out my year and re-evaluate to see if I'm going to keep it.  So far though I'm enjoying the products.


**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for My Glam.  I pay for these subscriptions myself.
