The Nuella Michaels Glam Bag

Hey Guys,

Long time, no Beauty Post!

Planning to do more beauty, hair and style posts from now on! Y'all got a Food post every week, enjoyment!!! I have to balance out the posts as this is a lifestyle blog.

So I met Suashee of Nuella Michaels at the She Hive and she sent me a DM on Instagram introducing a monthly glam bag that is subscription based.

It came with a Liquid Eyeliner Pen, Mascara, a Beyond Beauty Lipstick, Earrings, A concealer palette and an Eyeshadow Palette.
 My favourite item is the Liquid Eyeliner.

I remember in A levels when my friend, Tiwa did eyeliner for me for our Sixth Form Ball, she used a Felt tip pen from Mac.

I used Felt tip eyeliner pen's for most of my time in the UK. Haven't really found one in Lagos that I love, I use Maybelline Colossal Kajal  like in this post or the Zaron Gel Eyeliner which I used in this post. The Gel Pot has lasted me for about 16 months and it only cost N1,750, abeg give it up for Zaron.

This pen came in a cute pack and I like the Precision. Haven't used it out yet to tell how long it lasts, might just shoot a beauty pictorial this weekend.

The last time I bought Mascara, it was the blue one I put up here.

My mum recently bought Benefit, they're real Mascara for me which I love.

This one seems like it'll be a pretty good alternative.

I'm not a fan of this lipstick colour.

My Candy Yum Yum that I won in this post is still unused.

I think the earrings are cute.

The concealer palette is interesting, I currently use Mac NW 45 for my brows or Black Opal in Nutmeg. Palettes are useful for Makeup artistes and aspiring ones too.

The eyeshadow palette has 2 seperate triads.

The one with the Bronze, Yellow and Red shades is my preferred one.

I swatched them on my palm.

As you can see the cool toned colours came out better.

I'll try them out with a primer this weekend and gist you about the experience in a new post.

I didn't know most of these brands before I got sent the bag so experiencing the Glam bag was pretty enlightening. The bag costs N3,500 and you can get one here. It's a bit like the Graze box

Follow them on Instagram & Twitter to find out what's in the April Bag

Let me know if you've used any of the brands before and what you thought of it.

    1. Yuppp!
      They also state the content of the glam bag on their website so you know what you're getting.

  3. Wow amazing. I need to up my make up game o. How much is subscription?

  4. uhm, I'm skeptical about subscription bags here in Nigeria mainly because half the time, the products in the bag will either be low quality or things Id never use. Not sure I'll be trying this out but i love the idea. Well done Nuella.

    1. Hmm, you have a point there.
      I'm glad the products I got from Nuella are of Good Quality :)
