My Glam Bag January 2012

I am so thrilled that MyGlam unveiled the contests of their January bag on Facebook today!  Unfortunately, I won't get my hands on it until Saturday night at the earliest, so I don't know the EXACT contents.  There may be different colors or formulations from what is listed on the site right now. As always, Jessica and I are dedicated to bringing you the specifics on what we receive right away so stay tuned!

I've given links to the direct websites, and in some instances, that was better and more direct than including a picture.

Here's what I'm getting:

1.  theBalm Shady Lady eyeshadow in one of three neutral colors
-Can be used wet or dry
-Feature triple-milled pigments with incredible pay-off and essentially no fall-out
-Talc-free formula with a rich, velvety consistency.

Chances are REALLY good that Jessica and I already own all 3 color options that they're sending, since we have a few of their palettes.  Watch for a possible giveaway!

If you are a fan of theBalm products, they are frequently sold at Tj Maxx!

2.  Wen Cleansing Conditioner
-Wen is a single step Cleansing Conditioner with natural ingredients.  The most important thing about Wen is actually what it's NOT.  It's not a shampoo.
-Wen avoids sodium laurel sulfate and other damaging detergents usually found in shampoos, so it won't strip hair and scalp of natural oils.  The astringent and antibacterial properties found in the Cleansing Conditioner thoroughly cleanse the hair without lather or harsh ingredients.  It's designed to add sheen, luster, moister, manageability and helps enhance color retention.

If you end up loving this cleansing conditioner, our awesome guest blogger, Lauren JUST did a blog post on a really nice dupe you can purchase for far less. The Wen conditioner is a monthly service, where they charge your card and only send you a month's supply at a time.

3.  Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Masque by Freeman
-This ever so fun mask gently peels away impurities while Cucumber extract leaves skin silky smooth.  Perfect for normal to combination skin.
-Freeman beauty products are loaded with botanical ingredients that naturally cleanse, moisturize, sooth and refresh to have you looking and feeling your best!  Looking like a million bucks shouldn't cost a million bucks and Freeman offers affordable products that make premium beauty care within reach to all.  So lather up, slather on, spritz in!

This is the stuff I'm most excited for!  I used to buy this in little one use packets in middle school and we'd use them at sleepovers!  This stuff has been around forever, and it's great.  I had totally forgotten about it!  The only problem is I can't find it more than a single use packet at any store.

My Glam is running a special where you can get THREE full size facial masks for $10.  
Pineapple Facial Enzyme Mask, Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask, and Goji Berry Facial Hydration Mask.  I am definitely planning on getting this trio!  What a steal!  

4.  Cover Duo Concealer by Sheer
-A creamy dual shade concealer that can be custom blended to create the perfect shade for your skin tone.
-The Sheer Cover Duo concealer instantly conceals blemishes, scars, dark spots, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone for a flawless, natural look.  It provides variable coverage- sheer and creamy perfect for under eye circles or more opaque for blemishes, scars, etc.
-The Duo Concealer is enriched with natural, moisturizing Jojoba to help nourish and restore the skin's natural moisture balance.  It provides antioxidant protection from free-radical scavengers while allotoin helps calm and smooth sensitive, irritated skin.

I'm very curious about this product.  Always looking for a great concealer and the concept of being able to mix your own shade is very exciting.  I've been looking to get a new Erase Paste by Benefit, but I'll definitely give this a run first!

5.  Hot Ticket Nail Polish by the Balm
-A wide range of colors, textures, and finishes to suit any occasion or mood.
-Quick-drying (2 Minutes!), high-quality polishes.
-All colors will not fade or turn yellow in sunlight.

Jessica has a full size bottle of this stuff, so she already has a good idea of how well this works.  Hey Jess, if you end up with the same shade you got for Christmas, maybe I'll trade ya, or.....giveaway!

I can't wait to get my bag!  I hope this was helpful and informative.  I love that MyGlam always works out little discounts for you, like the 3 for $10.  Last month, they gave you a $15 off an Urban Decay Book of Shadows in your bag- a coupon that large on a cosmetic item is unheard of!  I can't wait to see if they have even more coupons in the MyGlam bag!

So far, out of all my monthly services, MyGlam is still my favorite- only 2 months in but I stand by that statement!  I loved every single thing I got last month, and there's not a single item I'm not excited about this month.  Absolutely fabulous deal for $10 too :-)

Yours in Beauty, Justina


  1. I think everyone is getting either an item from The Balm or nail polish from Hot Ticket, not both. It'll be interesting to see who gets what! I love nail polish but both you and Jessica love the balm so I'd be happy with either!

  2. Normally I would want an eyeshadow because if they're full size they are worth $16 and their eyeshadows are nothing short of amazing. However, I have almost all of their palettes and the shadows looked like ones I already have, so in this case I wouldn't mind a polish. My Glam is starting a swap tab so you can swap with other glammies!
