pure brazilian Miracle Leave-in Conditioner
Full Size Price: $6.00 - $26.00
This is a keratin infused conditioner that claims to reconstruct dry damaged hair. It is formulated with ingredients like Bulgarian Rose Water, Bombyx Silk, Quartz, and crushed Pink Sea Pearls. I really enjoyed the scent of this product as it is sweet with a slight floral note to it. The formula itself is on the thicker side but it does not weigh down my hair at all. I found that it did make my hair feel quite hydrated after use and the scent did linger on my hair for a bit. I would purchase the full size of this product. This is the full size travel version of this product.

Essence Superfine Eyeliner Pen
Full Size Price: $2.00
I am not a big user of liquid eyeliners so my experience with these types of products is limited. This is a precise eyeliner that claims to be extremely long lasting. It has a thin felt tip and the formula claims to be waterproof. I found that the brush itself was quite easy to use, I found it to be quite long compared to other eyeliner pens I have seen before. The formula seemed to be a bit on the drier side when applying which I didn't mind as it made it easier to draw fine lines without dealing with smudges. If I had a use for this product, I would consider this as a top option especially considering the low price point. From my research, this does appear to be a full size product.

the Balm Hot Mama Shadow/Blush
Full Size Price: $21.00
Sample value is approximately: $5.25
I am a big fan of the Balm cosmetics and have tried many of their other eyeshadows and blushes before. This is an all-in-one essential shadow, blush, and subtle highlighter. It has pinky-peach hues that add a splash of color to your cheeks and a hint of shimmer to your lids while also illuminating your features. I used this as a blush and loved the coloring on my skin tone. I found the formula to be smooth and easy to apply, the pigmentation is not too overpowering so it's easy to build up the coloring of the product. I would purchase the full size of this product.

treStiQue Lip Crayon in shade "Florence Fig"
Full Size Price: $28.00
Sample size value is approximately: $12.00
I love Trestique and in particular their lipsticks so I was excited to try out a new shade. This is a creamy, lightweight, lip color crayon that has a matte finish. I love how moisturizing this lipstick is and how pigmented the formula is. I found that it's the perfect nude pink color which is one of my go to options for the fall season. I would purchase this in the full size as well as trying other shades from the brand.

MeMeMe Cosmetics Blush Brush
Full Size Price: $10.97
Sample size value is approximately: Full size price or $5.48
I always love trying out new makeup brushes and since I had never heard of this particular brand, I was excited to give it a try. This is a soft bristled blush brush with a matte black handle. The bristles themselves feel very soft yet durable, I did not experience any fall out from the synthetic hairs when using and washing the brush. For the use of blush, I find that the head of this is a bit too soft. I prefer my blush brushes to be a bit more stiff so I can stipple on the product then blend out. I think I would use this more as a powder brush or a face blending brush. I am unsure if this is a full size product this month so I am calculating my value with two price points. I would consider purchasing other brushes from this brand.

My October Glam Bag is valued at $30.73 or $36.22*.
I pay $10.00 a month, so I received an additional value of $20.73 or $26.22*.
Overall, I really enjoyed this month's bag. Not only were there many products that I enjoyed but I also loved the bag itself since Halloween is my favorite holiday. This is definitely one of my favorite bags from this year. My favorite product from this month was the lipstick.
