Ipsy's October Glam Bag
Good morning! It's Wednesday, which means we're halfway through the week now, and I'm here with another Ipsy post. It's been exactly one year since I received my first Glam Bag, so happy Glam Bagaversary to me!
Here's this month's bag and theme. I have to say, they've gotten more creative since a year ago, which is a testament to how far they've come in the past year. It's Halloween month, obviously, so what better than "Black Magic"? That bag is so cute! <3
Here are the contents of the bag.
First up is a nail polish by Kokie. The color name is Heavenly, and it's a gray color with a hint of purple. Seems pretty Halloween-y to me.
Pur-lisse has provided other items for Glam Bags before, but this is the first lip item I've received by them. It's a Daily Lip Nourisher with Mango & Shea butter. I just used some and it seems fairly rich with a nice scent. You can never have too many lip balm-type products, so I'm happy with this.
This is a felt-tip liquid eyeliner by Ciate of London. The line is called Fierce Flicks and it's definitely in the color black. I know some people absolutely hate these types of eyeliners, but ever since Almay came out with one years ago...I've been a huge fan. I have three other ones, and one is ready to die, so I can rest easy knowing I have another one. lol
Here's another lip color pencil by treStique. As you already know from previous Ipsy posts, I have received a few of these before, even in the same color. I'm happy to report that I have a new, more appropriate for Fall, color in the name of Florence Fig. It's a muted, dark reddish-brown, and I like it immensely.
One of my favorite ever Ipsy items was an eyeshadow by theBalm called Meet Matt (tri)Mony. I was fortunate to receive two by a fantastic accident, that coincidentally left me with the extra treStique lip color that I don't really use much.
Anyway, I received another eyeshadow by theBalm, called Hot Mama! It's a reddish-orange color, and another perfect color for Fall. I don't think I'll love this as much as Matt (tri)Mony, but I will definitely use this all the same.
And there you have it, my latest Ipsy Glam Bag. I can't believe it's been a year since I got my very first bag. I've heard some people complain about their subscriptions, saying that they'll never use any of the items. Well, then this sub is probably not for them. While I still haven't used every single item I've received through Ipsy, I have a few things to say about that:
1. I will, eventually, use all these items.
2. I've gotten some really awesome items from Ipsy that I can't live without.
3. It's not even expensive, you can always give cute gift bags/boxes to friends as gifts using items you don't think you'll ever use. (Not me though, I'm not parting with a thing!)
4. I don't even use all the items that I buy for myself.
Really, if you're not that much into makeup, or if you're a big makeup snob, then this sub isn't for you. For the rest of us though, it's pretty awesome. But hey, that's just my $0.02.
