City Color Cosmetics Bold Brow in shade "Medium"
Full Size Price: $3.99
Sample size value is approximately: $1.99
This is a duo matte brow powder that also comes with an angled small brush for application. I found that the darker shade was fairly close to the current shade of powder I am using. The formula is fairly well pigmented and does apply and blend with ease. I did use my own brush as I find they work better. Overall, I enjoyed the product and will be repurchasing as it is extremely affordable. 

Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter in shade "Sin"
Full Size Price: $26.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.99
This is a highly pigmented highlighter that has a beautiful golden hue. I found that it applied evenly and blended out well. It also lasts for quite awhile and compliments many skin tones. I enjoyed the overall formula and would consider purchasing the full size.

Cailyn Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in shade "Practicable"
Full Size Price: $19.00
This is a liquid matte velvet lipstick that is highly pigmented and claims to provide all day, water, and kiss proof wear. It dries quickly when applied so it makes the application process one that you want to do slowly so as to not mess up your lines. While I did enjoy the color, I found that the formula wasn't easy to apply and once it sets, it isn't easy to correct. I also ended up having very dry lips immediately after application and didn't like the way it set, so I removed it. The formula doesn't work well for me but I'd be interested in seeing if any of their other products would as I did like the color. From my research, this does appear to be the first full size product this month.

it Cosmetics Superhero Mascara
Full Size Price: $24.00
Sample size value is approximately: $13.33
This is a mascara that claims to give super volume and length in just one coat. I found that the formula was decent and the brush was okay, it did create some clumping issues as the brush picks up a lot of extra product. It lasted a good while on my lashes and did not flake, I personally didn't find anything spectacular about this product but it's fairly decent for what it is.

Adesse New York Gel Effect Nail Polish in shade "Surfer Girl"
Full Size Price: $18.00
This is a long-wearing, fast drying nail polish that is formulated to give the look of a gel manicure without the use of a UV or LED lamp. It is infused with organic bamboo extract, shea, and argan oil to help soothe your nails. This polish is also 5 free and made in New York. I have tried the brand before and was kind of eh about it but this formula is absolutely amazing. I love the bright blue hue of this color and found that it applied with ease and the drying time was excellent. I achieved this look in three coats. I will be purchasing other shades in this formula. From my research, this does appear to be the second full size product this month.

My May Glam Bag is valued at $55.31.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I received an additional value of $45.31.

Overall, I loved this month's bag and find that Ipsy has truly been doing extremely well so far this year. My favorite product from this month's bag is the nail polish.
