❧❦ MyGlam Bag February 2012 - NYX ❦❧

MyGlam Bag February 2012
I ordered MyGlam so that I would receive it in January.  

A few weeks later, I noticed that I had two shipping confirmations in my InBox! About a week later, I still hadn't received anything from MyGlam so I sent their customer service department an email about it.

They told me to wait until the 25th of January, and if I hadn't received it by then, they would refund my $10 - which is exactly what happened.  Although their customer service department was friendly and helpful, I would have preferred to just have a MyGlam box.  Needless to say, it wasn't the most auspicious introduction to MyGlam!

February rolled in, Valentine's Day passed and the very next day my MyGlam package arrived.

My first thoughts were favorable - the makeup bag was cute, I liked the chocolate, and the masks and eye cream samples. However, the X-Out Shine Control and NYX Roll On Shimmer are just not products that I am interested in.  I still think this box was worth the $10, though.

After I uploaded my video several ladies commented and told me to take a closer look at the "$100 gift card" that was inside.  I hadn't even glanced at the inserts, and I was surprised to find a $100 gift card for NuMe!  I was familiar with their products, and when I started looking around on their website I realized that this would be the perfect opportunity to buy either a new hair straightener or hair dryer.  Mine are overdue for a replacement.

I decided to use the gift card and I purchased the NuMe Wet & Dry Professional Styling Iron for only $45 (excluding shipping).  Considering that I was ready to purchase a new flat iron anyway, the "gift card" worked out very well for me and therefore I am very happy with my February MyGlam bag!

NYX Roll On Shimmer
Dead Sea Premier Eye Cream and Instant Stretching and Revitalizing Mask
Ghirardelli Dark and Milk Chocolate
X Out Shine Control oil-free moisturizer 
I am a little concerned though that MyGlam is going to be mostly about drug store products, which I rarely ever use.  Time will tell if MyGlam is going to be worth it for me.

The gc is really exciting, but the products seem so blah. I thought they were going to consistently switch off between higher end products and drugstore.
