Ofra Cosmetics Pressed Blush  in shade "Rendezvous"
Full Size Price: $15.00
I have enjoyed quite a few products from Ofra Cosmetics so I was excited to try out this blush. The color itself was a tad intimidating as it appeared very dark. Once I applied it to my skin, I found that it blends out into a beautiful rosy soft red hue. I enjoyed how well it was able to blend out and I found that it lasted quite awhile on the skin. From my research, this does appear to be the first full size product for this month. I will be purchasing other shades of this blush in the future.


TonyMoly LIPTONE Lipcare Stick in shade " Rose Blossom"
Full Size Price: $10.00
This is a lip care stick that has an ultra hydrating formula infused with hydrating oils. I received the Rose Blossom formula which is a sheer, rose-tinted shade. It claims to hydrate, repair, and protect lips with a blend of camellia and rosehip oil. The scent of this product is quite strong and a bit more on the floral side than I prefer. I did enjoy how moisturizing it is and found that it kept my lips moisturized for a decent period of time after use. I do believe this is the second full size product this month. I would be interested in trying the other formulas of this product.


PS Cosmeceutical Nail Polish in shade "Southern Sand"
Full Size Price: $14.99
This is a neutral colored nail polish that has a cream finish. It contains no formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, or camphor. I tend to avoid lighter nail polishes like this since I am fair skinned and find that it blends in too well with my skin tone. This formula had enough of a more pinkish hue to it that it doesn't look too bad on me. I was able to achieve an opaque look in three coats and really loved the application brush as it was the perfect size to evenly apply to each nail with ease. The formula appears to be fairly long lasting but it does take a good amount of time to fully dry. This does appear to be the third full size product this month. I would consider trying other shades from this brand.


Theorie Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum
Full Size Price: $26.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.54
This is a hair serum that claims to penetrate deeply into hair follicles to restore moisture and add shine back to your hair. To use, you simply apply to the ends of damp or dry hair making sure to fully disperse the product, then style as usual. It is safe to use on colored and keratin treated hair. It also is formulated to protect from heat styling and environmental stress. I really enjoyed how light the product felt and how well it applied. The scent is more on the natural side but it is quite pleasant. I found that it did make my hair feel softer, I do feel it may need to be used for a longer period of time to see any long term results. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow & Highlighter
Full Size Price: $25.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.50
This is a 2 in 1 product that can be used as either a highlighter or eyeshadow. It is a beautiful pearlescent shade that is highly pigmented and easy to blend out. I used it as a highlighter and loved how it looked on my skin tone. I found that it gave just the right amount of shine without being too over powering. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


My April Glam Bag is valued at $45.03. 
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I received an additional value of $35.03.


Overall, I really enjoyed this month's bag and feel like Ipsy has been on a roll with their bags so far this year. My favorite product from this month's bag is the highlighter/shadow.
