Glymm Box: March

I was kind of disappointed this month with Glymm because they actually forgot to ship out my box. I never get a tracking number and a week after they shipped out I decided to email about it because I should have received it. They sent me my tracking number and I noticed that my box was shipped out that day. So I was really mad to be honest. Another thing that bugged me was that they didn't say sorry. On the tracking information they wrote a comment saying, "Your Glymm box is on it's way!" not even a sorry. :(
But they either put an extra product in my box for being late, or it was accidentally put in my box. So that kind of makes up for being late. But not really because I won't use the product.

The product card:

An offer for a product in the box:

Anastasia: Hydrafull Gloss: Get your lips softer and fuller! Drench the with multi-dimensional pigments that release high shine and colour. It stays put without the sticky residue. This rich and fortifying formula nourishes your lips with the added benefits of Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Anastasia's exclusive Balkan Botanical Infusion. Pucker up beauties!

To be honest, I forgot about this product until now. :) I put it in my lip gloss drawer and I don't go in there too often. :) But I will put it in my purse so that I can try it out because after reading that description it seems pretty good. It seemed a little sticky on my hand but I will have to try it on my lips.

Full Price: $27 for 2.2mL

M. Asam: Magic Fini: This silky formula blends beautifully into your skin to conceal uneven skin tone for a light, matte, natural looking finish. It smoothes away the appearance of wrinkles, enlarged pores and imperfections to reveal a sun kissed, healthy looking skin tone. It's magical!

I actually really like this! It might seem a little dark at first glance but it does blend really well into the skin. I was thinking of getting this for the summer. But I will decide closer to the time. I do like this now but I have better skin when I have a tan and it becomes a little more even and freckley so I don't need as much coverage and this product is perfect for that!
You don't need a lot of product at all and you can use Glymm points towards the full size so the price is okay :)

Full Price: $38 for 30mL

NuMe: Feather Hair Extensions: Get professional grade DIY feather extensions instantly! A beauty trend that definitely stands out! Coloured hair trends have been prevalent on the hottest Spring 2012 runways. NuMe extensions are 100% cruelty free, synthetically crafted from real human hair and ready for heat styling. Don't be shy, flaunt the feather!

I think this product is a little weird to put in a Glymm box. One problem I have with giving this to customers is that there is no beads with the extensions. You need special beads with feather extensions that you have to get from a specialty store (like Sally's Beauty Supply). They are like the beads when I was a kid wear you would make shapes and then iron them so they melt and stick together but they have a rubber circle inside to make the bead stick to the hair.
I probably won't be using these even though I have a bead because I am not a fan of the black stripes :)

Full Price: $25 for 3 feathers

Ocean: Nail Polish: A true trend-topper, Ocean Nail Polish Spring 2012 collection boasts shades that are vibrant, pastel and intense. This luscious lacquer applies super smoothly and streak free and is fast drying without containing any toxins. It's sold in upscale salons around USA and Europe.

I have not tried this yet. I am more of a pastel person for the spring and summer so I will probably wait to wear this till the fall. Possibly on my toes in the summer though. One thing I read on the facebook page was that this brand is hard to find if you want more colours. That is when I read the description and noticed it said sold in USA and EUROPE. This is a Canadian box.. why would they include something you can't repurchase?

Full Price: $12 for 15mL

This is the extra product I got in my box. I don't have any information on it and I probably won't use it so I won't include it in the total of my box. I will pretend I didn't get it! I seriously put it in my sample drawer and it will probably stay there for a while. I got a similar product in a Glymm box already which I mentioned in the video.

Value of the Box:

Lip Gloss: $12.27
Magic Fini: $6.33
Hair Extensions: $25.00
Nail Polish: $12.00

Total: $55.60

I find it funny that the product I like in this box is worth the least. :)

This box is nothing special to me. I don't think this is an amazing box and it didn't help that is was delayed in shipping. It does have a product I might repurchase full size which is good. It also has 2 make up products which is a big deal to me. But the feathers and nail polish kind of brought the box down in my opinion. I would have prefered a different colour nail polish and a different product instead of feathers. I would even have prefered a body/face cream and that is saying a lot because I am tired of those. If I was subscribed monthly, I don't think I would unsubscribe because the 2 beauty products make up for the other products in my opinion. 
Glymm to me, is the only company I can expect monthly to get a makeup product. I am pretty sure I have always gotten some sort of make up product in and that is why I subscribe to the companies! :)

I got green extensions :/ used one in my hair with a bobby pin for St. Patrick's day. That's it. But I loved the Magic Fini too :)

Great post Doll. Even though I love me some cute travel size products I cancelled my Glymm box months ago. I joined the 1st month and every single month my box was super late, lost or missing samples.
