I recently received my first Glitzy Glam Bag for the month of August, this was started by a local beauty supplier about a year ago, but I only discovered this in July via a local Youtuber. I received it on the 4th September, but it seemed like this was a late month for a lot of their customers but I figured it was worth the wait to try out a few new items...
So basically its similar in concept to the glam bag, birch boxes etc where you pay a monthly fee (TT $100) which includes postage and you get either some sample size or full size items sent to your door or you can probably organise pesonal delivery if in Trinidad...
- Concealer brush
- Elf Super glossy Lip Shine SPF 15 - Goddess
- Nabi Blush - Plum 05
- Nabi E29 HOT BLUE EYLINER
- bhcosmetics quilted makeup bag

My take on the items?? Hmm...
I'm not really a lip gloss, and though Elf products are not common in Trinidad and Tobago nation wide,it can occasionally be found at Excellent Stores when they remember to stock up on the US 1.00 line on the little turntable display, (items cost about $10 TT) rack and they've had lip gloss on display which never grabbed my attention...with that said ...
The lip gloss is a little sticky, has a bubble gum scent and taste has a touch of pigmentation and does exactly as it says - gives a super glossy shine and has SPF (protects lips from sunburn)
The Nabi eyeliner is matte and well pigmented, seems to go on smoothly has no extra staying power but works well as a regular eyeliner...is an unknown brand to me.
The Nabi blush in Plum was a bit pale on my skin when swatch, but it blended easily to a more acceptable shade, has no shimmers and was also a little powdery but workable on my skin tone...unknown brand
The concealer brush is typical to its kind.. firm ,synthetic hair, non abrasive on the skin and can serve for other functions.
bhcosmetics makeup bag/pouch is made out of a quilted synthetic shiny cloth material, has an inner pocket and can be used ideally to carry around your daily touch-up make essential.
Recently on there facebook wall they've mentioned a surprise box, but I did not apply for that one but who knows, if my curiosity irks me enough I just may try it out. You can check out the company on there facebook page but you need to apply as a friend...its open to international shipping and they do sell other items like the 120 palette etc. Everything is calculated in TT dollars so be a smart shopper and purchase only if its worthwhile to you..
