NYX Ipsy Eye Shadow Pallet
Full Size: $6.00 (Currently on sale for $3.00)

This is a 3-color eye shadow pallet from NYX, it includes all shimmery shades that easily are combined to make a neutral or smokey eye look. I find this pallet to be an ideal travel companion, as it has the basic color combos for any look and it's small size fits easily in a travel makeup bag. The only thing missing is a highlight color. I found these shadows to be highly pigmented and easily blendable. I have used many NYX products in the past and this pallet stands up to the same quality that I expected. I would consider purchasing more from this brand and this is my first full size product this month!

Not Soap Radio Liquid Freud Hand/Body Lotion
Full Size Set: $49.00
Sample size value is approximately: $1.19

This is a hand and body lotion that promotes the idea of being a "liquid Freud" that can give you an immediate mood boost. The scent is coconut milk with a splash of mango and vanilla. I liked the scent and the overall texture of this lotion. I wouldn't say I saw a change in mood, but maybe with daily usage and a larger bottle, these claims could be proven. I did find this to be very moisturizing without feeling greasy, it doesn't dry too quickly so start with a small amount and work your way up. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

J. cat beauty #MOTD Slide On Pencil For Eyes in Bronze
Full Size: $3.99

This is an eye liner in a bronze shimmery shade. I found that it applied well without too much pressure, the ability to draw a straight line was fairly easy. It does not smudge extremely well and did not take to being used on the waterline though. As a top liner, it really works as a beautiful addition to spice up my normal neutral eye look. I found the eyeliner to be long lasting and it did not crease or cause any flaking when applied. I enjoyed the overall formula and found this shade to be perfect for the upcoming Fall season. I would purchase more of these eyeliners in the future. This is also my second full size product this month!

City Color Cosmetics Be Bold Volume & Length Mascara in Classic Black
Full Size: $5.99

This is a black mascara that promises 3x volume and length. When first using this product, I found the wand to be quite intimidating looking and not extremely user friendly but after working with it, it does apply the mascara nicely. I found it to be apply with ease and it did not cause any clumping or "spider lashes", one coat was easily enough for me and did give me the appearance of fuller and longer lashes. I enjoyed the overall formula and found that the brush does not hold an excess amount of mascara which is a big plus to me as I really dislike when a wand comes out soaked in product. I would consider purchasing other types of mascara from this brand. This is my third full size product this month!

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Elegantly Wasted
Full Size: $15.00

This is my first time having a nail polish from this brand and I am fairly in between about my overall opinion. I absolutely love this color which is best described as a lavender shade. I would see this color being a go to in the Spring season more than the upcoming Fall but I do love how pigmented this shade was. It applies evenly and I only need 2 coats to make it opaque, 3 coats is what I ended up doing in order to have a fully smooth appearance to the nails. I also used a top coat to set the nail polish. Overall, it has a nice formula and I like how the product is packaged but I have had many issues with chipping. For this to be a more high end brand, when speaking of price, I was a little disappointed with just how soon my nails began to chip. I have had this polish on for 3 days and have already had to reapply to several nails. I am a busy mom who cooks and cleans throughout the day but I have many cheaper polishes that have held up better. I am unsure if it's my top coat not mixing well with the polish itself or if it's the formula of this polish. Either way, I enjoy the product and would be interested to try other shades. This was my my fourth full size product this month!

My September Glam Bag is valued at $44.31.
I pay $10.00 a month, so I received an extra value of $29.17 this month.
Overall, I am thrilled with this bag for obvious reasons. Four out of five of my products were full size this month! That alone makes me excited about things to come. I was glad to see more cosmetic items as that is what I am more interested in. I really do like the bag this month as well and find it to be perfect for the upcoming Fall season. I am very pleased with everything I got!
