Once again, I pay $10 a month for these bags. I love seeing what comes my way each month! The value received this month was $31.74, a bit of a higher value than last month. I was mostly happy with the products in this month’s bag. The Pore Refiner went on nicely and can be used as a foundation, which I don’t necessarily need along with my current makeup routine, but is worth having for occasional use. I love Urban Decay and have started using this mascara daily. The eye shadow is good for a base – and I didn’t realize it comes with an applicator and a mirror so I have to check that out! I wouldn’t say I needed another lip balm, but this one smells nice and also feels nice. Finally, the dry shampoo may not be so great for curly hair, since it needs to be combed out, but I wonder if it might work on my hair when it’s straightened and then I can keep it straight for longer – we will see!
