Sedona Lace Synthetic Blender Brush EB 13
Full Size Price: $14.95
I always enjoy trying out new makeup brushes and was immediately drawn in by the beautiful coloring of this brush head. This is a synthetic blender brush that can be used for both eyeshadow and concealer. The bristles of this brush are quite dense and very soft, it works extremely well at blending out eyeshadow in the crease as well as applying highlighter under the eyebrows. The pink and black colors of the brush head are a registered trademark of the company and I love the unique look it gives. Overall, I really love how well the brush works and will definitely be purchasing more from this brand. From my research, this appears to be the first full size product in this month's bag.

Befine Night Cream
Full Size Price: $10.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.00
Since I suffer from dry skin issues, I am always looking for new moisturizers to try out. This is a rich, nourishing treatment that claims to help skin recover, repair, and recharge as you sleep. It also contains natural estrogen which helps to reduce wrinkles and prevent premature aging. It works by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving circulation for better color and clarity. To use this product, you simply apply it daily after cleansing and toning as you prepare for bed. Smooth all over your face, avoiding the eye area. I found this product to be very moisturizing and it did not irritate my skin nor feel greasy. I did not care for the scent as it smelled quite medicinal. Overall, if the product came in another scent, I would consider purchasing the full size.

theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt{e} Trimony Eyeshadow in shade "Matt Moskowitz"
Full Size Price: $42.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.33
I really am a big fan of theBalm Cosmetics and especially love their eyeshadows so I couldn't wait to try out this sample. I received the shade "Matt Moskowitz" which is a matte plum color. I find this shade to be more ideal for the fall season when it comes to my preference of eye looks but I did try it out as a crease color and found it to blend quite nicely. The pigmentation is rich and very smooth to apply and swatch. I love the matte coloring and just how long it lasts. I would definitely consider purchasing the full size palette.

Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer
Full Size Price: $15.00
Sample size value is approximately: $3.75
This is the first primer to bring the probiotic's brightening benefits to beauty. This primer claims to help you look fresh and flawless for longer and allowing your makeup to last longer with the help of ingredients such as coconut water. It can double as a moisturizer as well which is great for me since I do suffer from dry skin issues. There are three ways you can use this product. First is alone for a nice dewy and refreshed look. You could also use it as intended, simply apply to your face in a thin layer before applying your foundation or any other face products. Lastly, you can mix in a dime-sized amount of liquid foundation to create your very own tinted moisturizer. I really love this product and find it meets all of my needs. It carries a light coconut scent to it which lingers slightly on the skin. I did feel as if it kept my makeup on for longer without it looking worn down and I loved how quickly it set into my skin. I will be purchasing the full size of this product.

Modellauncher Cosmetics Felt Tip Eyeliner in the shade "Emerald Isle"
Full Size Price: $13.00
I do not use liquid eyeliners all that often and definitely don't do anything out of the normal black shade. This is a felt tip eyeliner that has a easy-to-use felt tip applicator that draws a bold and pigmented line that dries in seconds and stays put. I was quite surprised to see such a bold color choice in my bag but figured it was a worth a try. 

I don't think I pull it off but honestly my liquid eyeliner applying skills are quite low so maybe if I was better at it then I could like it more. It is beautifully pigmented and reminds me of a nice teal color, I think this would be beautiful on someone with a darker complexion than me. It was rather easy to apply but it did skip a bit on my skin as I felt the tip was a bit more dry than I would have preferred. It did dry very quickly which would be great for someone who is able to apply this without mistakes, I had to fully remove my makeup on one eye due to not being able to easily remove my mishap. Overall, I like the formula and would be interested in trying this in other shades. From my research, this does appear to be the second full size product this month.

My July Glam Bag is valued at $34.61.
I pay $10.00 a month, so I received an additional value of $24.61 this month.
Overall, I really enjoyed this month's bag as it carried several cosmetic brands that I already love and introduced me to some new ones that I also am now enjoying. My favorite product from this month's bag is the blender brush.
