My First Glam Bag

I recently asked you guys for your opinion on subscription services such as Ipsy (formerly known as MyGlam), and Just Fab. Well, I opted for Ipsy and received my first "glam bag" last month:
Inside the cute, hot pink envelope above was...

A small makeup bag and a cute little note that said, "Hello Bombshell."

For the month of October, I received:
  • Liquid eyeliner in Onyx by Be a Bombshell;
  • Black mascara by The Balm;
  • Eye shadow quad by Coastal scents featuring Cloud White, Paris Green, Reef Blue, and Thunderous;
  • Pequi hair oil treatment;
  • and this hideous lip color called Glossy Lacquer Stain by Mirenesse Lip Bomb:

Um, yeah. Apparently, complexion is not a factor when putting together these glam bags because this color definitely isn't working for me. I believe the company intends to take skin color into consideration moving forward, which would make way more sense. If they don't, I'll probably be cancelling my subscription, as even the models they use (including the black one) is nowhere near my skin tone.

Well, that's it for last month's glam bag. We'll see what the mailman brings me this month...

I know, right?? LOL! I haven't tried the hair oil yet. I'm up to my ears in coconut and olive oil so I'll have to see when I have time to give this new oil a try ;-).

Yeah, when I checked out the site, the one thing I was concerned about was getting products that I couldn't use. I didn't want to waste money and have a rack of product sitting around. That's actually one of my issues with products like curlbox, I so anti-clutter
