MyGlam June Bag

Hello lovelies. I am very excited about showing you what I got on my MyGlam June bag. Last month, my bag came very late (arrived the last week of May) that I lost any excitement about it. The products were good, but as I said, too late!

Anyways, I was happy to found my bag in my mailbox last night. By the way, I had an amazing day with my brothers yesterday. We went to see the Brasil-Argentina soccer game at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey and it was very exciting. It couldn't be a better day for a soccer game and I was so happy to spend time with my boys :)

I received this gold glitter clutch. It is very nice and I can wear it for a night out. I'm afraid of some glitter falling out and getting it all over my face or clothes, so I will have to make sure to "shake" it very well before using it :). But, it is really cute!
I also got this sample size of this Philosophy take a deep breath oil-free energizing oxygen gel cream moisturizer.  I haven't try this before, but I believe that it might be similar to the the Bliss Triple Oxygen + C Energizing Cream, which I love. This product says to help detoxify the skin for a healthy looking glow. It contains ginkgo biloba extract, which has anti-aging qualities, it helps to reduce puffiness and stimulates blood circulation. I am looking forward to try this out.
I also got  this Living proof  frizz Nourishing Styling Cream. Wow, I can't wait to try this. Humidity is a killer for my hair during these hot days and this will definitely help.
As a "Glammie" I received a special offer to to buy a kit containing shampoo, conditioner and a styling cream or spray for $35.00. Not bad. Have any of you try this already? Please, let me know what do you think about it.
My bag also brought this Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen in black. This is one of my favorite products from this bag. I almost buy one of this at the drugstore the other day, and I am so happy I didn't. This product sales at $19.00 at the Marbella web-store. This is a 24 hrs. eyeliner and it says that is can be remore easily with any eye-makeup remover. The only thing I am not sure about is the warning of not using it with lenses on. I wear lenses and I don't know if this will give any irritation to my eyes. I hope not, otherwise I will have to give it away.
And lastly, my very favorite product form this bag is this NYX Round Lipstick in this LSS 521 Chloe color. I think in plain English, this is a fuchsia pink color. Everybody knows how much I love lipsticks and I see this is going to be my go to lipstick these days. It actually going to match with my Julep nail polish in Lily.
I really like my MyGlam bag this month and I can't wait to try this products.

I hope you enjoyed this post and please let me know if you have tried any of this products or if you are subscribed to  MyGlam and what do you think about it.

Hasta Pronto!!

My Julep Box

Hello, hello......How is everybody? I have been missing in action for a while and I want to apologized. Many things have happened lately and the most excited of all: I graduated last Friday with a degree in Business Management! Yay....I feel very proud of myself. I still have a long way to go: I want to keep studying, start my own business, etc. I feel really optimist about the future :)

Today, I received my first Julep Maven box (a graduation gift to myself) and I want to share my thoughts with you.  I know that many of you know that Julep Maven is a subscription program that specializes on trendsetting new nail colors and beauty products. 
You pay $19.99 a month and you received two or three nail polishes and two beauty products and promotions. I think that $19.99  a month is a little expensive, but you can skip a month buy canceling your box between the 20th and the 24th of each month. 
This month, I received these two gorgeous nail colors in Lily and Courteney. I love the Lily color and I think that it will be my go to nail polish for the summer. The Courteney color is like a lime green. It's cute, but not really my favorite. I will pass it down to my mom, she will love it!
I also got this Julep sunscreen with SPF 30 for face and hands. Just in time because I was almost out of  sunscreen. I started to notice a few sun spots on my hands and I think it is because I always neglect to apply sun screen on them. So ladies and gentlemen, please don't forget to protect your hands from the sun by applying sunscreen when exposed to the sun.
The description product says that this sunscreen has vitamin E, that it hydrates the skin and strengthens the nails. Also it is parabens free. I am very excited about this product. I will do a future review about it, soon.
Finally, I aslo got this lip balm with SPF 15. It has a Vanilla Mint scent (smells delicious) and it is very creamy. I also like that it has organic ingredients like organic extra virgin olive oil and organic palm oil. We have to take care of our lips, not just by applying sunscreen, but also making sure that what we apply on them do not have dangerous ingredients, like lead. Did you know that the average woman will eat 90 pounds of lipstick in her life? It is scary to think that it could be 90 pounds of lead :(
I also want to mention that the packaging was very delicate. All came in a black carton box very nicely wrap in an orange paper. I think that is very thoughtful of Julep Maven. It was very exciting to open my package.
I hope that you enjoy this post and if you are subscribed to Julep Maven, please let me know what you think about their products and their subscription.

Hasta Pronto.
