Ultra light formula wont clog pores
Multi dimensional pigments blend to skin tone for easy shade matching

So...they don't bother telling you how much product comes in the full size, on the brand website. Because the Pan Diameter is so helpful. We shouldn't have to research, like we're researching a thesis paper, just to find the weight of a product.
The sample size sent, contains 3g / 0.11 oz of product. The pan dimensions of said sample size is 1.1 in. x 1in.
I'm sure that's super helpful to you.
The full size, 2.31 in. diameter, retails for approx. $20.00 USD.
According to Beauty Bay, the full size is 8 g. I also found it on the ASOS website. That would make this sample size value approx. $7.50 USD

Not only did we create the perfect natural tan color, this matte powder is so soft, which makes it easy to pick up from brush to face. Did we also mention that it’s buildable and long wearing?

Swatches at the end of the post.
Luxie - Rose Gold Blush Face Brush 514
Imitate the perfect glow on your cheeks with this Luxie blush brush. Made with cruelty-free synthetic bristles, this vegan brush achieves beauty inside and out. Fake a healthy flush with this must-have product in your beauty arsenal.
This blush brush retails for $18.00 USD. It's nice, it's soft, it's synthetic and seems well made, so far. This is not my favourite type of brush to use for blush, personally, but this will get some good use, using it with other powders.
Soo Ae Purifying Black Charcoal Mask
The Soo Ae Purifying Black Charcoal Mask is formulated using Korean binchotan charcoal, a renowned anti-inflammatory that purifies skin while brightening the complexion. With the addition of cultured green tea extract and green caviar extract, this mask recharges, hydrates and boosts skin elasticity, resulting in beautifully clarified, smooth and supple skin in just 15 minutes. Convenient and travel friendly, the mask makes caring for your skin simple and easy whether at home or on the go. Soo Ae’s special blend of plant-based ingredients is scientifically formulated with multiple herbs based on the wisdom of traditional Korean herbology which ensures synergistic efficacy and safety to help improve skin conditions. Soo Ae’s formulations stand apart from other plant-based skincare formulations not only because of each individual plant and herb ingredient selected, but also because of the how well those ingredients work together in order to provide visible results.
Haven't tried this yet. Their website says this is sold at Walmart only. Walmart USA, that is. I have no idea where you might actually find this in Canada. These charcoal masks come in a set of 5 and retail for $20.00 USD.

NYX Butter Lipsticks are pretty much a staple in makeup land. I was sent the colour Lifeguard. Butter Lipsticks retail for approximately $9.00 CAD.
This month's ipsy Glam Bag has an approximate value of $68.45 CAD, after current conversion rates. Not bad. It sure would be nice though, if ipsy would just send out the value of products that they include...I feel like a legit investigator every month, trying to hunt down the value of the bag.
