Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan oil of Morocco 3 day Smooth Perfect Blow Dry Smoothing Cream
Full Size Price: $8.99
Sample size value is approximately: $2.24
This is a cream that is for smoothing curls and waves into sleek styles. It claims to maintain smooth hair for up to 3 days, providing hydration, and removing frizz. It also protects from heat damage and strengthens and seals split ends. This product smells mostly like the argan oil that it contains so it has a more natural scent to it it. The cream has a nice texture to it and it did not weigh my hair down. I found that it did last for a good while when I used it but since I wash my hair every other day, I can not fully attest to the 3 day claims. Overall, I really enjoyed how well it works and will purchase the full size product!


Skone Cosmetics insanely intense tattooed eyeliner in shade Jet Black
Full Size Price: $15.00
This is a super pigmented, waterproof and smudge proof liner that stays on all day. It has a an exclusive felt tip applicator, it also comes in five shades to fit your style and mood. This product is not tested on animals. I enjoy the bold color that this liner provides but did feel that the tip was more dried out then I had anticipated so I was unable to get a full smooth line like I had hoped. Overall, it does go on quite easily and does last quite awhile. I don't think this would be a great beginner eyeliner but it isn't too difficult to work with just be sure to take your time with it. I would consider purchasing this in other shades. This also is the first full size product this month!


28 Remedy Balancing Toner
Full Size Price: $59.99
Sample size value is approximately: $5.88
This is a toner that is suitable for acne-prone skin. It claims to help reduce excess oil that can lead to breakouts, strengthen skin's own moisture, and help defend against the signs of aging and the appearance of wrinkles. It also contains functional elements, adenosine and niacinamide. I found that this dried out my skin a bit more than I'd prefer but overall it worked fairly well. I feel I would need a larger size of the product to fully test the claims but overall, it did seem to help my moisturizer sink deeper into the skin. Since I have products similar to this, I don't think I would purchase the full size of this product.


pixi by petra Beauty Blush Duo in the shade Rose Gold
Full Size Price: $18.00
Sample size value is approximately: $7.96
This is an enlivening blush and highlighter duo designed to give a lit-from-within look in a few fuss-free seconds. I am absolutely in love with this blush combo and find to be a beautiful combo for any skin color and great for the Spring season. It is a true rose gold color and I found just mixing the two colors together and applying to the cheek gives a beautiful overall color. You can simply apply the blush and then use the highlighter above. It is highly pigmented and gives long lasting color. It also comes in the shade Peach Honey. I will be purchasing the full size of this product!


NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in the shade Pink Lust {Hot Pink}
Full Size Price: $7.00
This is a liquid suede cream lipstick that glides on and sets into a striking matte finish. It is velvety soft and waterproof, giving a long-lasting color. This lipstick applies with ease and I did use a lip liner to give it a boost and I find it easier to apply evenly when following a lip liner. This color does smudge before it fully sets so be careful when applying. This is a bright pink color so if you don't like brights, this shade won't be for you. I, personally, find this to be a beautiful, high-pigmented shade and it is perfect for Spring and Summer. The first picture is immediately after applying and the last picture is after having coffee and lunch. As you can see there is some color missing but I think with the lip liner, this could hold up for at least half a day of wear. Overall, I love the formula and pigmentation and will be purchasing more shades. This is the second full size product this month!


My March Glam Bag is valued at $38.08.
I pay $10.00 a month, so I received an extra value of $28.08 this month.
Overall, this bag was a great combination of products and I loved having two full size beauty products. I am loving the design of this makeup bag as well and found all the products to perfectly tie into the new season. I am excited to see that Ipsy is off to a great start with this year's bags!
