bonvivant Botanical Mask Pack
Full Size Price: $1.00 per mask
These are 3 full size masks that each have their own benefits and uses. The green mask is made with collagen and olive which delivers Vitamin-E for boosting elasticity and youthfulness. The blue mask is made with Chamomile and tea tree which cools and tightens pores while moisturizing. The pink mask is made with sodium hyaluronate and lotus which restores dried skin and gives a dewy finish to your skin. I used the green mask and found it to be very well coated in the formula. It was a bit difficult to keep it in place but overall I enjoyed the feel and did find that it left my skin feeling fairly moisturized. I like the idea of having many types to choose from so I do see myself purchasing more of these in the future.

Formula X Nail Polish in shade "Huntress"
Full Size Price: $10.50
Sample size value is approximately: $2.62
As a nail polish junkie, I am always excited to try out new polishes! I am familiar with the Formula X brand and overall do enjoy their colors and formulas. This color is fairly unique and is described as a deep emerald shade with flecks of gold. It is enriched with ShineXcel which is a luminescent ingredient that amps up the overall shine. It contains no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. I really liked the coloring but have experienced a lot of chipping issues since applying it. I do like the color enough that I would consider purchasing the full size.

theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara
Full Size Price: $18.00
Sample size value is approximately: $4.50
As a big fan of theBalm cosmetics, I was excited to try out this new beauty product! First of all, this mascara opens like a pop off top which caught me off guard and ended up being quite a pain at times when using as the handle easily slips out of my hand and sometimes when pulling the wand out, mascara gets all over the place. I do like the shape of the brush as it is curved which allows full application to my lashes to be done in just a few swipes. Overall, I love the formula but wish the packaging was done a bit differently. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

Ciate London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in shade "Diva"
Full Size Price: $19.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.84
This shade immediately made me think of the holidays, I love red lip colors this time of year and was loving the coloring from this particular one. This is a liquid lipstick that dries in a matte finish. It is a very true red shade and applies quite nicely and evenly. While I do absolutely love the color, I was very let down by the smearing that occurs with this. I allowed it to dry for some time and in the process noticed I had it smeared on other parts of my face and hands just while applying the rest of my makeup. I am not sure if it needs a longer window of fully setting in but I was let down by the fact that it ended up being quite a mess. Unless I can work with the drying time and find less of a smearing issue, I will not be purchasing the full size of this lipstick.

OFRA Cosmetics Banana Powder
Full Size Price: $12.00
I love OFRA Cosmetics, especially their eyeshadows so I was thrilled to see this new product from them. This is a banana powder that claims to conceal, highlight, and set your makeup. The yellow color can correct any redness and is suitable for any skin tone. I used it as a highlighter and found it to be a bit too light for me which I am on the very pale spectrum of coloring. While I do find a bit of warmth in the color, it didn't fully work for me in that way. I do like it for covering up any redness and find that the formula is smooth and easy to apply. I would consider repurchasing this product. From my research, I do believe this is a full size product this month.

My November Glam Bag is valued at $27.96.
I pay $10.00 a month, so I received an additional value of $17.96.
Overall, I really loved this month's bag as it contained many new beauty products and most of them I do enjoy and am considering purchasing in the future. My favorite product from this month is the mascara.
