My Glam Bag- January 2012

Nearly two weeks after the promised delivery date, My Glam Bag for January 2012 has finally arrived. The feedback and comments from everyone on the first My Glam Bag were the only things that kept me company as the cold winter weather blew into New York...and my bag did not. Once I am annoyed at something like a late shipment it is extra hard to impress me. And My Glam's "Back to Nature" themed bag did nothing to change my feelings of ambivalence.

L to R: Concealer, conditioner,  nail polish, peel off mask
 Featuring the Freeman Cucumber Peel-off mask that (no joke) I loved when I was in middle school, Sheer Cover Duo concealer, theBalm Hot Ticket Nail Polish, and Wen cleansing conditioner the bag's Back to Nature theme included "cruelty-free, organic, all-natural and earthy" makeup lines.  I was excited about trying the new concealer but the Sheer Cover was too sheer for my bad boy undereye circles. I'd already tried the cucumber mask years ago and while I had fun with it then, I had no desire to reconnect with this product as an adult. The Wen cleansing conditioner is a perfect travel size and I will definitely be hanging on to it for trips to the pool and beach this summer, though it tends to be more conditioner than cleanser.


While I liked the idea of the Back to Nature bag and thought the actual cosmetic bag was adorable, I was disappointed by the actual execution. Some of the cosmetic brands in this bag seemed more drugstore buys than high end cosmetic company samples. Plus the main reason I loved the December bag was missing- where was the makeup!? Maybe I'm being too harsh or maybe others experienced similar thoughts. Let me know in the comments and one randomly selected commenter (be sure to leave your email) will be selected to test out a few of these products on January 31st. Winner will receive theBalm nail polish in Strawberry Fields Forevah, the Freeman Cucumber peel off mask, AND the cream My Glam cosmetic bag.
