TONYMOLY Painting Therapy Pack
Full Size Price: $6.50
Sample size value is approximately: $2.16
This is a wash off mask that contains black bamboo charcoal which claims to help remove deep impurities, and break down dead skin cells. It also contains lava and kaolin clay to detoxify your pores without drying it out. It is ideal for oily skin as it helps control sebum production. This mask is extremely thick and not the easiest to blend out on the face. The scent is strong and does linger on the skin for a bit after use. I did find that it cleansed my skin well but I have dry skin issues, so I don't feel this mask did much for me. I would not purchase the full size of this product.

Elizabeth Mott POP! Goes The Shadow in "Mermaid Teal"
Full Size Price: $13.00
Sample size value is approximately: $9.75
This is a shimmer eyeshadow, I received the shade Mermaid Teal which is an aqua color. This color swatched beautifully and was a color that I think fits perfectly for the summer. I used it as a crease color and did find that it was a tad difficult to blend out and still maintain the vibrant color. It also created fallout in my inner corner area. While I think the color is beautiful, I do wish it was easier to blend and still keep the bold coloring. I would be interested in trying it as my main eyelid color to see how the color payoff works. I would consider purchasing other shades.

Adesse New York Gel Effect Nail Polish in shade "Oh, Cabana Boy"
Full Size Price: $18.00
This is a gel effect nail polish that claims to contain a super opaque and shiny formula. The shade I received is a pastel blue and I was able to get an opaque look in three coats. The formula is vegan, cruelty free, 12-free, and is non-toxic. I absolutely love the color and think it is ideal for the summer season. I did experience chipping just a day after application so I wish it had a more long lasting formula. It does look beautiful and gives a gel like finish. From my research, this does appear to be the first full size product this month. I would consider purchasing other shades.

Tarte Cosmetics Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder
Full Size Price: $33.00
Sample size value is approximately: $7.76
This is a finishing powder that is made with Amazonian clay that is ideal for all skin types. It claims to help control oil production, brighten dark spots, and balance your skin's moisture levels. It can be used over your foundation to give a matte finish and minimize the look of pores. I wish the dispenser was a bit bigger as it takes a bit of effort to tap out the product. I found that it did help give my foundation a matte look and it did not settle in any fine lines. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream in shade "Cairo"
Full Size Price: $6.50
This is a soft matte lip cream and I received a pale nude shade. The formula is fairly pigmented and it claims to be long-lasting as well as buildable. While I enjoy the formula, this shade is not for me. I have fair skin and this nude shade just gives me no color payoff and blends in with my skin. I do think it could be combined with a pink shade to give it a bit more life. I would love to try other colors. From my research, this does appear to be the second full size product this month.

My May Glam Bag is valued at $44.17.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I received an additional value of $34.17.

Overall, I enjoyed this month's bag as it contained a great variety of beauty products and I do like the majority of them. My favorite product form this month's bag was the nail polish.
