Hi everyone! It's currently pouring outside with no sunshine in sight for the rest of the day so I'm so happy I took these pictures earlier when it was nice (and extremely hot!) out of my June MyGlam bag!

For those of you who have never heard of MyGlam, MyGlam is a company created by Michelle Phan, a YouTube Beauty Vlogger. Every month (for $10), MyGlam sends out a cute make up bag full of full sized or "deluxe" samples. On their website, each month a beauty stylist will put together a look using the correlating products.

So, the theme for July's bag was Beach Beauty and I really, really loved this bag! I think all the products worked well with the summer theme and are things you can actually use at the beach or in preparation for summer weather.

They always send a card with a picture according to the theme and on the back lists what's in the bag.

The bag! First off, I'm in love with this bag itself. It's super summer-y with it's adorable rainbow stripes. I don't really mind that it's see through but some people might if you're putting personal items in here. It's of mesh material and doesn't reek of chemicals like some of the MyGlam bags have in the past. A+ for the bag!

Ahhh, what's inside!?

Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain in Tango / $19 - Buy

Honestly, I was super livid about this at first. The marker is bright ORANGE. Who is going to use a bright orange color for their lips and cheeks? But alas, it isn't actually orange but a really cute coral (I apparently can't get enough of coral this year!). Thank God. The consistency is of Benetint but in a marker form.

See? Not orange! 

NuMe Hydrating Conditioner Hydro Punch - $24.99 / Buy
Described as a "professional solution for dry or colored hair making revolutionary synergy between traditional Moroccan Berber women, Argan oil and innovative patented technology of SERATIN-K Protein Complex." I'll be honest and say that I have yet to try this but it smells really good. I know that's not much help. Haha.

Yes to Cucumber Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes - $5.99Buy
I have been dying to try these out so I was so stoked to see them in the bag. OMG, guys. Let's talk about this. It smells like yummy cucumbers. CHECK! One of my favorite scents. Has aloe vera in it? CHECK! Removes make-up, cleanses and nourishes your face? CHECK, CHECK AND CHECK! This is perfect when you're leaving the beach and feelin' a little salty and dried out to quickly take a towelette out and wipe your face. I seriously love this.

Kiehls Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion - $26 / Buy
Described as "lightweight moisturizing lotion that helps visibly reduce excess oil on skin’s surface, leaving a shine-free and balanced appearance. It is non-greasy, and retains essential moisture in skin for a healthier, rebalanced skin barrier." I really like this. It made my skin feel very hydrated and clean with out feeling greasy and leaving a weird shine that I feel some lotions leave behind. It doesn't really have much of a smell. I would definitely recommend this product 

Circus by Andrea's Choice - Price NA / Buy - Available in Fall 2012
And lastly, Andrea's Choice's new cosmetic line Circus debuts in Fall 2012 and with it is a cute selection of nail polishes! MyGlam sent out three out of the five colors that will be available: Reverso (white), Somersault (neon yellow) and Tightrope (neon pink).

Naturally, I got Reverso. Am I disappointed? A little bit. I wanted Tightrope but hey, it's no biggie! Reverso is a whiteout white and while I haven't tried it yet, I have high hopes for it. I really love the packaging that it came in and the bottle itself is very nice although I'm almost positive if I threw it and hit someone, I'd definitely knock them out! This thing is heavy! 

Overall: I am very happy with this bag! I know many people have had issues with their bags from chemical smells to just not being happy with the products. I personally, never had these problems but I definitely think MyGlam will be redeeming themselves with this one!
