Steve Laurant Beauty Blush in shade "Rose All Day"
Full Size Price: $22.00
This is a baked blush which means it started as a liquid and was baked into a creamy, powdery formula. The formula claims to be long lasting and easy to blend. The color I received is a medium toned pink that it is fairly pigmented and I found it suited my skin tone well. I do think it blends nicely and is buildable so you can have a subtle or dramatic look depending on your preference. I was unable to determine if this is a full size version of the product but I am counting it as such for my review. I would consider purchasing other shades.


Trissola Leave-in Conditioner
Full Size Price: $24.00
Sample size value is approximately: $1.92
This is a leave in conditioner that contains vitamins B5, A, and E to help prevent split ends, lock in moisture, and keep color treated hair vibrant. It does not contain sulfates, phosphates, or parabens which makes it safe to use daily. To use this product, you can either style into your damp hair or on the ends of your dry hair. The formula contains a strong sweet scent to it with hints of vanilla, which does linger in the hair after use. I found that it did feel quite moisturizing and helped control some of the frizz issues I experience. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


SAHI COSMETICS Cream Metallic Foil Shadow in shade "Doha"
Full Size Price: $22.00
This is a cream metallic foil shadow that is infused with jojoba oil to help hydrate your eye lids. I received a rich coppery gold shade that is best applied by either wetting the eyeshadow or using a moistened eyeshadow brush. While the pigmentation is stunning and it does look beautiful on, I have a few issues with the formula. Even though I applied it as directed, it was a bit difficult to pack on and achieve the look I was going for. After applying the eyeshadow, I had a decent amount of fallout all over my face. Throughout the day, the eyeshadow literally started flaking off and continued to spread glitter all over my face.

While the product is beautiful and highly pigmented, I would enjoy the product a lot more if it had less fallout issues and could last all day. Keep in mind that I did use an eye primer as a base for the product. I was unable to determine if this is a full size product but I am counting it as such for my review. I would be curious if all of their shadows contain the same formula, if they had others then I would be interested in trying them out.


Delectable by Cake Beauty Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream in Sweet Mint
Full Size Price: $6.00
This is an ultra nourishing hand cream that is enriched with shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera. The formula is designed to smooth, nourish, and rejuvenate hands and cuticles. The scent I received is a sweet mint and it does linger on the skin after use. I found the formula to be light and that it soaked into my skin quickly without any irritation issues. From my research, this does appear to be a full size product. I really enjoyed it and would repurchase this scent as well as others.


NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Soft Matte Lip Cream in shade "Milan"
Full Size Price: $6.50
This is a liquid matte lip cream that is a beautiful pink with blue undertones. The formula itself is highly pigmented and applies with ease. I found that it was fairly long lasting as I was able to eat and drink without too much product coming off. I did notice that it was a bit drying but I am currently dealing with some dry skin issues so that may be due to my own issues and not the product itself. I really enjoy the product and do believe it is a full size. I will be purchasing other shades!


My April Glam Bag is valued at $58.42.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I received an additional value of $48.42.


Overall, I was very pleased with this month's bag and all of the products I received. My favorite product from this month was the lip cream.
