.glitzy-glam... or sh!*ty sham?

after a rare viewing of allthatglitters on youtube (elle), i purchased a personalised makeup bag from  i thought it seemed a nice size and that having my name on it would be fun, so, after seeing the price ($30 incl. shipping) which is more than i would normally spend on a toiletries/makeup bag i thought... ahh so its prob ok quality then... ill treat myself!

for starters the picture of the one i was supposedly buying was lavender/blue colour and black letters, the one i received was purple and pink, could have been an error on my part but it obviously wasn't clear on the website.  so i was a bit dissapointed about that, but then when i opened the packet it came in i could tell straight away that the quality was awful, loose threads on the embroidery and zip stitching, horrid stiff plastic material lining the inside and cheap feeling fabric!!!  i think if i actually ever use it, it will fall apart straight away in my luggage bag!

anyway its now been shoved to back of a draw to live a boring life without the pleasure of carry around my toiletries and makeup, heres some pics for you to get an idea...

these pictures don't show how horrible it feels to touch.

i dont like to be negative normally but i really feel i wasted my money here and i don't want anyone else to do the same!

has anyone else bought anything from glitzy-glam?



  1. How very disappointing. Thank you for letting us know.

  2. That's horrible! I've got a makeup bag from a brand called Spacific Essentials that looks eactly like that and also has my name engraved and it is wonderful quality and has lasted me several years. I got it as a gift, but it was definitely less than $30!
