Customer Experience:Madam Glam is a cosmetics line based in New York. I personally emailed them to ask the questions regarding their vegan, nut free, and cruelty free statuses. The other information I gathered from the products that I personally purchased and used ordering from madamglam.com
I have yet to experience an issue when ordering from this company.
I don’t like how the pens are so skinny, the color of the gel you can only see once taking the cap off, the names are not labeled on the bottom or side… and the product performance was meh at best. I would skip buying this one and get your money’s worth with the three step or 3 in 1 bottle form.
It feels like a waste of money, even when its on sale, for a salon setting. This would only really be useful if you chipped your free edge and wanted to touch it up.
Product Performance: I was excited to try this out, considering their regular line is so epic with it’s durable mirror shine. Alas, the color was streaky even after 4 thin coats, was hard to apply with the twist top extractor, and just didn’t impress me like the rest of the line does.
Do you have a three in one gel pen that could trump this one, made in the USA? Let me know in the comments 🙂
