Glam Bag August

Hot Pink Metallic Glam Bag 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, Kiehls, 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.

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 Endless Summer.  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.

Eclos regenerative cream. Value = $3.12 (2 oz. $24.99)

Eclos cellular activator facial serum. Value = $7.35 (1.7oz. $24.99)

Full Size Demeter roll on perfume oil. Value = $10.00

Salty cosmetics Glama-Zoid Eye Shadow. Value = $3.97

Full Size Circus by Andrea's Choice nail polish in Ringmaster. Value = $4.99

My Glam Lip Gloss. Value = $10.00 (guess based on average lip gloss prices)

Cute little orange and pink mesh makeup bag.

The total value of this months bag is $39.43 not including the makeup bag.  Two of the items in the bag this month are made special for My Glam.  Also this month included another color of the Circus Nail polish that has not been released yet. I've used Demeter perfume before and this will be nice to keep in my purse or at work for a little freshen up.      

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.
