Initially when I checked the website out to find out the price for this product back in March it didn’t appear on the site. I wasn’t very happy about that because I have this thing where I usually dislike them giving us products that we cannot actually purchase. What’s the point of giving us something we like, but can never repurchase, right? And for that matter, other people can’t purchase which I’m sure companies would want when we blog about their products.

Anyway, I just checked it today and it seems that they’re planning to actually add it soon! I think it’s a great product for them to sell because it’s a pretty affordable palette to buy and customize. The patterns they have coming out for the case seem to be real cute too! I think this is a nice size for us to have and bring around because I’m sure for a quick look most of us don’t use past 3 eyeshadows. It also comes with a mirror for convenience.


Yaby // Eyeshadow (Seashell – es192 & Azalea Petal – es133)

[[ Whether you want to make a dramatic statement or just add a veil of color to your eyes, the yaby eyeshadow refills are extremely easy to work with. Can be used wet or dry and the smooth texture allows blending with ease. All shadows are vegan friendly and the pans are reusable for mixing. ]]
Full Size: $3.34/each || Received: $6.68 ($3.34 x 2) *FULL SIZED*

I’m really happy that Glam Bag gives me more neutral controls because that means it’s actually colours I’ll use! Both of these colours look really nice so I’m excited to try them out! I’ve been wearing more eyeshadow lately too.

Juice Beauty // Hydrating Mist

[[ Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist tones, hydrates, and refreshes your face and hair while on the go, anytime of the day. Hydrate with the refreshing blends of organic juices for a fresh, radiant complexion. ]]
Full Size: $22.00/200mL || Received: $3.30/30mL

I’ve been using Avène’s mist for a while now so I’m curious to see what this one will be like. The reviews of it on ipsy look like it either works but smells weird or it just plain smells weird LOL! But a good addition to the bag since warmer weather is approaching.

I opened it up since it says it was an ipsy deluxe sample and I’ve actually received a sample of Lash Cards before. I wanted to see if it was any different. I received 2 in my Glymm bag. Glam bag contained 4.

Glam Bag January 2013

I really enjoyed the stuff I got in my January and Winter boxes/bags (not including Glymm ::GAHH::)! It’s one of those rare times where I feel like everything I received was something I’d use. I went to grab this bag to check the sizes I got for the items and I found nothing inside because I took everything out to try LOL! Even more surprising, I’ve actually been liking all the products included in this bag!

As always, I’ll edit the post with my reviews as I try out the products ::heart2::.
By the way, something I really like about the Glam Bag – other than the fact that I love the stuff they give – is the fact that it’s backed by youtubers. I love how the beauty gurus all use the items in the bag each month to create looks/videos. Gives us great ideas on how to use the stuff ourselves ::^^::.
