MyGlam Beauty Bag – Yes I Did!

Aye yi yi! Please don’t throw anything at me. Yes I did resubscribe to MyGlam. I had canceled it after the previous month, but of course they would make it a good one! So I resubmitted my name for the May bag and I got it! And you know, it isn’t too bad of a bag. It’s always going to be hit or miss, but for $10 I think I’m staying on the gambling train!

In a nutshell, I got a cosmetic bag. Ha ha, you’re saying you already guessed that? It’s cute aqua with pink lipstick kisses on it. I’ve heard some people complain about the smell emitted from these bags, but Joe says I have the nose of a bloodhound, and I’ve yet to be offended by any odor from them.

I got two more beauty brushes. The final they will be sending for the set. This time I got the signature pink MyGlam Concealer Brush and Defining Eyeliner Brush. They are both nice. I’m sure I will be using all of these brushes soon. I have a couple of sets by other companies but I do like to play around with all of them to see if there are differences in details.

There was also a sample of Philosophy Love Sweet Love fragrance. I don’t wear the brand and this is definitely not a fragrance I would wear. It will make a nice little added treat in a swap gift. I just hope the recipient likes it!

From Studio Gear there was a nice lipstick. I have heard some of the girls didn’t like the color they received. But I have to say – I love the color I got! It is a color I definitely will wear! (Kind of makes up for that orange Hot Topic nail polish they sent a couple of months ago that I may or may not wear around Halloween!) And it’s called “Romance”. Awwww

Lastly this bag contained Miss Beauty Nail Bling nail decals. They are pink hearts. They look like the light box game my little brother had that you put pegs in and it lit up from behind. I actually haven’t ever worn nail decals! I thought it was kind of cute that this month all my gifts followed the theme “love is in the air” so closely. But it seems like a better theme for February. Ahhhh what do I know? 🙂

This is your link: MyGlam if you want to get on the MyGlam bandwagon. I don’t get any points or anything for signing you up. You will probably have to sign up for a waiting list. But hey, it’s $10 and that’s a pretty good bet!

A Second Day Late Valentine’s Day Post!

I did a really weird mani for Valentine’s Day. I was hoping it would turn out as I envisioned, but at least it turned out! I wanted to have a really light polish with a GITD design over it that wouldn’t be obviously visible. So I used Essie (which anybody that knows me knows is a brand I hardly ever use and have very few of) Shift Power. It’s a gold barely there polish that I was able to get away with using only 1 coat of! (After applying my favorite base – Zoya Anchor.) Then I used Kiss peel off stencils and the pink Expressions GITD polish I’d picked up last year at Dollar Tree. I painted on hearts and flowers. I topped it with a coat of Dragon Heart from my own Year of the Dragon polish line to keep the GITD from being visible. I wore it for two days. It was fun. I will keep experimenting because I’m sure it could look really nice if I wasn’t in a big hurry. So take a look!
