Last month I skipped reviewing my September Ipsy bag and reviewed my Julep Maven Box instead (see my review here). This month I’m back on track and am ready to review the October Ipsy Glam Bag. If you aren’t familiar with Ipsy, it’s is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription where you get five full or deluxe size samples of a variety of products and a cute makeup bag all for $10! This month’s theme was Alter Ego and the products came in a little metallic gold bag. Some of you have asked what I do with all of the bags. I’ve been reusing them as fun gift card holders!
One of the things I like the most about Ipsy is the deluxe sample sizes and discovering endless beauty brands. I’ve had this service for almost a year and a half now and I’m debating on trying something new. If you have any suggestions, please let me know in the comments!
Here‘s what was inside the October Glam Bag:
Eva NYC – Therapy Session Hair Mask. One of the main ingredients in this mask is Keravis Protein. This mask promises to drastically increase your hair’s strength and elasticity. It’s also free of sulfates and parabens. It smelled great and left my hair silky and shiny.
Peter Lamas – Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub. Pumpkin, apple, almond and apricot – this product smells good enough to eat. While it is an exfoliator, it is still recommended for daily use. My skin felt clean and soft after using it and I felt that my serum and moisturizer absorbed deeper.
AURORA – Gel Effect Nail Polish in Inky Dinky. This polish claims to have the pros of a gel in a regular polish with lasting power of up to two weeks. I love the deep ink color of this polish! It goes on thick and dries quickly with a gel like shine. It chipped after a few days but the color and gel like finish is fantastic.
theBalm Cosmetics – Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick. A liquid lipstick that has a long lasting matte finish and a vanilla mint flavor. The shade, Committed, is a pretty pink nude. It applies similar to a lip gloss but then dries with a matte finish.
Skone Cosmetics – Pretty Eyes Eyeliner. This automatic eyeliner pencil came in a plum shade and promised smooth application and a super creamy long lasting formula. It tugged a bit but overall was easy to apply. The color was more of a bright liliac than plum and was too shocking for my taste.
