Instead of the lip stain, some people may get Buxom's Big and Healthy Lip polish. And instead of the Kiehl's moisturizer, some may get Juice Beauty's Green Apple SPF 15 Moisturizer. 

Judging from the card that came with the bag, the bag will include 1 of 3 possible nail polish colors (Spectacle, Somersault, or Reverso). The card and the official website for the polishes have slightly different looking pictures of Spectacle. On the card, it seems like a bright, neon fushcia. On the website, it looks like an orange. Somersault is a neon yellow. Reverso, whcih came in my bag, is a clean pure white. I tested it out a little and it's pigmented. However, it suffers from a common problem of white nail polishes, it applies a little chalky. I'm not crazy about white nails (I just think it looks like white-out) but this will be great as a base for neon polishes to give them that extra punch. Perfect for summer!

The moment I swatched the lip stain I loved it. It's very pigmented and applies smoothly without bleeding out into fine lines. Tango is a really pretty watermelon pink. Great color for summer!

Overall, I loved this month's bag and I liked last month's as well. Hope MyGlam can keep this up!

What was in your fun-mail this month?

Also, here's a shot of the nails I'm wearing right now. I'm a messy DIY manicurist. Orly's Pixie Dust layered with Revlon's Whimsical.

Mint & Gold Nails

I am loving my mint and gold manicure right now. I don't know why but this color combo just shouts, "Summer!" to me. I have on Revlon's Minted and Milani's Ms. Milani. Really love the colors but the application leaves a lot to be desired. The gold is metallic and shows brush strokes. The mint green applies really streaky and has a big leveling problem. I need three coats to get an even coverage and definitely need a couple of coats of top coat to make it smooth.

What nails are you rocking at the moment?
