Value of Bag: $40.73
Thoughts on Bag: There was only 1 item different from my first bag and that was the eyeliner. I wasn't too thrilled about this month's bag. I love the purple liner which was definitely the highlight of this bag. I'm not sure though if I see myself using it though.. I might use it for the waterline or to use under an eyeshadow on my lower lashline. The highlighter is ok but pretty sheer. I hate the cream shadow. I think the color is just ugly and not a good color for my porcelain complexion. I won't use the hairspray. Hairspray i so hard to get out of my fine hair that tangles easily and for the most part I wear my hair up year round because  of the weather. I also work in the stock room at my job so i always have my hair up for that too. I don't really use hair products when i curl/straighten my hair except a spray used to prevent damaging my hair from the heat of curling irons/straighteners. Also I have used argon oil in my hair and it made my hair super oily (i have natural oily hair).

Thoughts on Bag: All makeup!! :D I loved eye shadow sample!! Such a pretty red!! The EM Michelle Phan lipstick feels amazing!! lol Its smooth and moisturizing. Love the color!! I finally got a color I like. The Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon was kind of drying, so i needed to apply some lip balm first. It has a nice bright red color, but its a very dupable red. I love the silver liner!! Its so shiny!! I didn't care for the nailtini color. I wish I had gotten the silver. The bronzer I can use for the summer months. :)

Thoughts on Bag: I loved almost everything in this bag!! I love the color of the lip balm. Some stated it was drying to the lips, but I wore it over a chapstick. The mascara is awesome!! Makes my lashes look so long!! The eyeliner is ok.. I'm not a big fan of pencil liners, with the exception of UD 24/7 Liners. The nyx shadow was wah wah wah.. lol It was a sheer silver and had to keep patting it over NYX Milk to get it a opaque coverage on my eye. It also creased really fast and I wore this over UDPP.

Brow Pencil, Eye Pencil, Mascara, Lip Balm

I'm wearing everything in this month's bag along with a nyx black pearl pigment i got in another glam bag.

Paired with Big Apple. :)
