bellapierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush in shade "Autumn Glow"
Full Size Price: $20.00
This is a creamy non-comedogenic mineral blush that promises to give you a beautiful, healthy flush that looks natural. This blush is talc and paraben free and is suitable for all skin types. To apply, you simply tap a small amount of powder into the lid and use a blush brush to dip into the powder, tap off excess and then apply as normal. I found the color payoff to be fairly decent on the skin but the idea of a mineral powder is a miss for me due to the amount of mess it can create. The coloring is a lovely peach color that is perfect for fall. I do enjoy the color and lasting quality on the skin but would prefer it in a compressed form. From my research this does appear to be a full size product. I would consider purchasing other shades of blush from this brand.

belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb
Full Size Price: $38.00
Sample size value is approximately: $7.60
This is a moisturizer that claims to provide skin with intense hydration. It is good for normal to dry skin types and is a solution for dryness and loss of firmness and elasticity. It claims to provide up to 26 hours of moisture and contains a blend of apothecary herbs including comfrey leaf. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. At first I found that this contained a medicinal scent to it but after application it settles into a very light citrus note. The unique thing I found about this moisturizer is that it leaves a slight silky residue after application, which is a tad off putting to me. Overall, it did seem to moisturize quite well but the formula just wasn't one I entirely cared for. I would not purchase the full size of this product.

Onomie Powerful Priming Serum
Full Size Price: $50.00
Sample size value is approximately: $7.50
This is an all in one treatment that corrects like a serum by delivering active skincare ingredients while also functioning as a lightweight primer to allow makeup to wear and last longer. It also claims to help improve in skin tone evenness and gently exfoliates for smoother skin. The scent of this product is very medicinal to me and is not one that I like at all. The sample size gave me enough to only sample one time so I don't have a lot of reference to give any credit to any of their claims. The formula felt smooth on my skin but the smell was just too much for me. I would not purchase the full size of this product.

eva-nyc Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner
Full Size Price: $14.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.05
This is a dry conditioner spray that detangles without water, softens the cuticle, and eliminates static and frizz. It contains vitamins B5, C, and Omegas 3, 6, 9, and 7. To use this product, you simply shake well then spray about 10 to 12 inches away from dry hair mid-length to ends. Brush thoroughly to style. The scent of this spray reminded me a bit of the temporary color sprays you can get, it's not horrible but it's kind of got a chemical like scent to it. I did find the product worked quite well at keeping my frizz under control. If it came in other scents, I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme
Full Size Price: $28.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.88
I am a big fan of Too Faced products so I was interested to see how this would work, I am not someone who needs nor really wants to try lip injections or other forms of lip plumping products. This lip plumper claims to provide immediate results with long-term effects. It is a day and night use serum that creates a tingling sensation which is a way of knowing that it is working. It promises to provide full and pouty lips in your very first application. I found this was quite moisturizing on the lips and it did tingle when I applied it but was not terribly uncomfortable. I did notice some fullness to my lips but it just didn't look right on me. I found the product worked quite well but just isn't for me.

My September Glam Bag is valued at $43.03.
I pay $10.00 a month, so I received an additional value of $33.03 this month.
Overall, I felt okay with this month's sample options. It's definitely not one of my favorite bags but it provided a decent balance of samples to try. My favorite product from this month's bag was the blush.
