Hey hey, it’s MJ,
I promised myself I would write this like a week ago but we are all still on quarantine and I haven’t had the creative energy to actually sit down and write a blog post but I got the email today with the spoilers for my April Glam Bag and Glam Bag Plus so I figured now was the time to actually get this written and done and over with.
It’s a cute little fold over with a snap and on the inside of the flap it says “unstoppable”, again the color scheme like the Glam Bag this month is actually really nice. This is I think the first bag I have gotten that doesn’t have a zipper on it and I like the change in style.
The Coffee Scrub Coconut Body Scrub:
It’s a rarity that I use body scrubs but I am willing to try most beauty products once and if I don’t like it, I don’t like it. I understand the need to get rid of dead or dry skin and it is helpful to do that every once in a while so maybe this would be really good for just a nice day of self-care. (which with what’s going on right now, we all need a little bit of self-care.) But it’s a pretty basic thing in general so there isn’t all that much to say about it. I did open it and it is a super strong smell and as soon as I opened it the zipper on the inside broke so that was a bummer moment.
TheBalm Cosmetics AutoBalm Day 2 Night:
I chose this, I really did and it’s a pretty interesting product and I like the pigmentation, I actually just put it on with my fingers and got a pretty good really quick eye look. There are a lot of metallic shades in it though so it doesn’t quite make a full look if you want matte shades mixed in.
Phase Zero Make Up Matte Liquid Lipstick in Undercover:
I don’t mind this shade and it goes on pretty well. I’m not sure if I am insane because of being at home all by myself but I think it smells good. It’s a rosy shade which is great for occasions year round.
Malin+Goetz Revitalizing Eye Gel:
I have used this a few times now and I actually really like it. I don’t have a lot of undereye products even though I know that I should and I really want to put it in my fridge and actually get those benefits as well.
Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner Water-Resistant Liquid Eyeliner in Black:
Three out of the last four months I have gotten an eyeliner, I do not wear eyeliner and in April I’m getting one as well. Something I will never use and I am really still upset about it because that is a waste of a product for me. I don’t understand why, when I review a product poorly they still send it to me. They sent out a survey asking subscribers if there was a pause feature on certain products what we would think and I said I would pause eyeliner indefinitely because I don’t use it. It’s a good liner but I do not use eyeliner. I also like the brand and I am not saying anything against them, it’s just a product that I don’t use in my makeup routine.
Complex Culture Precision Concealer Brush:
I mean, it’s a brush. I like the shape and the bristle packing, it is rare that I use a brush when I put on concealer anymore, I haven’t since I started using a beauty blender but I’ll give it a try.
Overall I liked my Glam Bag Plus this month except the eyeliner and that is becoming a common trend and I am not super excited about that but not everything can be a win.
Here’s hoping that the world gets less crazy in the coming weeks and I hope everyone is happy, safe, and healthy.
I’ll see everyone in a few days with another post,
