Birchbox and MyGlam Beauty Box/Bag

August MyGlam vs August BirchBox

What is MyGlam and Birchbox?

According to the Birchbox website: "Birchbox is a smart, streamlined, and fun way to discover high-end beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products."
"Birchbox delivers the best products and the best insider secrets, without any fuss. Every month Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch."
"Each month, you'll receive a selection of samples that we’ve tried (and retried) ourselves. We source our samples from both well-known brands and emerging gems. The women’s subscription includes everything from skincare to makeup, as well as fun non-beauty extras."

My July haul is below

What was inside: Luna Bar (So delicious) beautiful turquoise nail polish ( I can't remember the name becuase this was July's haul) Stila BB Cream 5 in 1, Stainiac Lip and Cheek Balm, Birchbox Ear buds (hurt my ears actually) and a sample of Miss Charming Perfume. ( I loved it! I will go to to buy the full size)

What is My Glam?
"Receive a Glam Bag filled with great beauty products.
Every bag contains 4 or 5 full-sized products
or deluxe-sized samples for you to enjoy."
You take a quiz to determine what sort of products that you would like the most and then the stylists decide which to send you every month. Go to to get started!

I die for the packaging! Seriously, how cute is this?

I haven't had a chance to review the products in the above picture. I am in the process of reviewing a bunch of skincare items, so this is the latest to join that list of products to review. I will let you know and am planning a Skincare Product Review Blog.

Below is the My Glam Glam Gloss that My Glam Bag sent me. It is a BEAUTIFUL bold pink color that is extremely moisturizing and goes on smooth and pure. It has no taste, no smell, but has long staying power and is highly pigmented. I adore this! I have similar colors in my makeup bag in my purse, so this is just my newest favorite of them. If I had to guess, this might be my favorite color! It's so universally flattering. Thank you My Glam Bag!

Here it is swatched on my wrist.

All in all, I love these types of subscriptions. They are $10/month for each and if you don't like to spend full price on products you aren't sure of, these are a great way to test out new stuff. And if you end up LOVING them, then you can go to or to purchase full size of your favorite samples.

You can also "gift" a subscription to people, so if you know of your mother, sister, daughter, girlfriend, aunt, that might love something like this, talk about a great gift! And on, they have men's subscription too!

I hope you all enjoyed this blog. It's great to be back. Getting pretty packages full of makeup in the mail really helps motivate a girl!

(I did not get paid to give my opinion about these subscriptions, nor did I receive any free product from them. This is all my own personal opinion from products I personally paid for. )
