People sure like to complain about things – and they sure did complain about this bag on the MyGlam Facebook page.  Would I have preferred fewer of my samples to come from a foil packet, sure, but overall this was a pretty neat bag.  I’ll explain my frame of mind again, I pay for these sample subscriptions to try out new things that I may not have thought of trying before.  With all these subscriptions I have gained exposure to so many brands I never knew existed. And every brand in this bag is included in that list.

So what came in the bag?

Pur-lisse pur-Protect SPF Essential Daily Moisturizer
Murad Eye Lift Perfector
DermStore $25 off a $50 purchase or more
3 Lab Perfect Cleansing Cream
Keracolor Color Enhancing Leave-In Treatment
Exclusive My Glam Classic Crease Brush and Case

How does the value of the bag hold up?

Pur-lisse pur-Protect SPF Essential Daily Moisturizer
Sample Size 0.14 oz
Full Size 11.7 oz
Full Size Price $55.00
Sample Value $0.66

 
Murad Eye Lift Perfector
Sample Size 0.015 oz
Full Size 0.06 oz
Full Size Price $35.00
Sample Value $8.75

 
DermStore $25 off a $50 purchase or more
Sample Value $25.00 (there is currently free shipping so I didn’t deduct anything for that)

 

3 Lab Perfect Cleansing Cream
Sample Size 3.4 oz
Full Size 3.4 oz
Full Size Price $40.00
Sample Value $40.00

 
Keracolor Color Enhancing Leave-In Treatment
Sample Size 0.17 oz
Full Size 5.5 oz
Full Size Price 29.95
Sample Value $0.95

 
Exclusive My Glam Classic Crease Brush and Case
I think this brush sort of looks like some of the Crown Brush custom brushes, so based on their line I am giving a value
Sample Size Value $8.00

 

Bag Value $50.36 without including the Brush since I am just estimating that value, and without the coupon code because it isn’t something you can use without spending money.

    I’ve been going back and forth about which one of the sample programs to try out. Do you have a favorite?

      Hmmm that’s tough, I think it depends on what your goals are for your kit.

      -Myglam has promised more makeup soon however they haven’t opened new subscriptions for awhile. They also seem to be suffering from new company pains the most

      -Birchbox is the most consistent and has the most variety but it is really a crapshoot, some boxes have been amazing and others have been complete duds. They also love sending fragrance samples…

      -the look bag had some really neat stuff in my first bag but I don’t know if they will keep it up with subsequent bags. Some members who have been with them since the beginning(january) have started complaining that they no longer like it

      -beauty bar has only had one box so far and everything was really generous sized I like it so far but again, it’s so new I don’t know how they will hold up

      -Beauty army has been around since new years. In my opinion they have opened it up to too many new subscribers since things keep going out of stock as samples, so though you get to choose your own, it’s limited by what is left. I think that they are starting to grow and will soon have better stock. I’ve really liked most of the products I’ve gotten from them though, even ones I didn’t think I’d like

      – soap box is just fun soap and body stuff, it is quarterly and there is a wait list for the next one but it really is fun

      Overall it really depends on what you are looking for. I think if I could only keep one then I’d go with beauty bar, though I’ve only gotten one box from them I feel like they may end up being the most consistent and most variety, but that is just a guess.

      Let me know which you choose!
