February My Glam Bag

 Hello ladies, I'm sure most, if not all of you know know what My Glam is. If not, you can go over to their website here for more information about them.
This month's my glam bag was in a hot pink package.
As for this month's bag, it is a hot pink bag with black hearts. How cute!
 Here are all the goodies that were inside.
 X out shine control moisturizer
What it says on the My Glam Website:

Shine Control by X Out

Why we love it

    What it is:
  • X Out Shine Control is an oil-free moisturizer with a mattifying complex that helps to instantly absorb excess oil.
    What it does:
  • X Out Shine Control is designed to help moisturize the skin while helping to minimize the appearance of shine, helping to create the perfect canvas to apply your makeup. It's the ideal primer to add to your daily beauty regimen as it hydrates while helping to control oil and mattifying the skin.
    What else you need to know:
  • Oil-Free
  • Non-Comedogenic
  • Created by dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, the makers of Proactiv®, America's number one acne system
By the way, there has been this issue going around about this product because if you remove the label, there is a different package label printed on the tube. But anyways, here's what My Glam had to say about it:

NYX Roll on Shimmer in Chestnut for eyes, face, & body
 First impression: I swatched it on my hand and left it on for a few minutes to see if it would set and not budge. It does not set at all and is easily wiped away. It does, however, leave a very light stain of color.
What it says on the My Glam website:

Dazzle your face and body with Roll On Shimmer! Jazz up your look with any of the 16 brilliant shades that wears on eyes, face and body. Loose powder with intense shimmer and glitter.

 Dead Sea Premier moisture complex moisturizer & Cinderella instant stretching and revitalizing mask.

What it says on the My Glam website:

Cinderella Mask by Dead Sea Premier

Why we love it

  • Cinderella had just a moment to get ready for the ball where she met her Prince Charming. She was magically transformed! However, at the stroke of midnight, everything would turn back to the way it was. Apply the mask before your next ball or romantic date on Valentine's Day and watch your skin transform before your eyes. You will see wrinkles become firmer and fine lines instantly tighten.
    How you ask?
  • This mask is specially formulated and packed full of beta-carotene, Vitamin E and A, tea tree oil, soy protein, cinnamon extract, pro-vitamin B5, Dead Sea minerals and the mud from the Dead Sea. Oh, best part of it all, it will last up to 3 days, so feel free to stay out past midnight.
    Application :
  • Thoroughly cleanse the face and neck area. Gently massage a thick layer of mask onto the face and neck. Wait for 5-10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. Apply cream and make-up, if desired.
 Freeman Goji Berry facial hydration mask. So we either got the pineapple or goji berry mask.

  • Gently exfoliate with Pineapple Facial Enzyme Mask to help lift dry, dead skin cells out of the way. Pineapple Extract and AHA's exfoliate so that moisturizers can reach your skin for better hydration and reveal fresher skin.

N.O.T.W. & a little help

Wet n Wild Party of Five fast dry nail polish was hard to work with. It would sometimes end up removing the base color while I put it on top. As for the Essie polish, the name was ripped off and I do not know what it's called, so if any of you ladies know, please let me know.
Thank you!

Review: Loreal 24 Hr Infallible Eye shadows

Eternal Sunshine, Amber Rush, Iced Latte

I love these eye shadows. They're very pigmented and the shades are gorgeous. Although they say 24 hours, they do end up creasing on my eye lids by the end of the night even after setting them with eye shadow primer. I'd say they're still really great though because that only happens when I have my makeup on for almost 12 hours, and I have oily lids. I do find that they pick up better with my fingers rather than eye shadow brushes, so I like using my finger when putting the product all over my lids. Overall, if you ladies haven't tried these yet, I recommend getting your hands on them. My favorite shades are Iced Latte and Amber Rush.

I have to say, once they set, they wouldn't budge, even with water. & they are really pigmented. I can't wait to give you ladies my full review on these once I've tried them long enough.
