ipsy Glam Bag Review – October 2013

ipsy Glam Bag Review - October 2013

It’s ipsy time! I went spoiler-free again this month, cause y’all know I like to be surprised. I did catch one spoiler by accident and knew we’d be getting a Zoya nail polish. That wasn’t too exciting for me, but I was cool with getting it. Anyhow, my Glam Bag is now here and yep I’m pretty happy with it!

Each month, subscribers will receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Take a beauty quiz when you sign up and wait for your bag full of fun to arrive! This subscription box/bag is one of the most popular and talked about. Man, people go crazy over ipsy! I really enjoy ipsy, I’ve never been disappointed and it’s super affordable.

Cost: $10 / month + $4.95 shipping to Canada (free shipping in US)

ipsy Glam Bag Review - October 2013

This month's theme is the Art of Beauty. ipsy is having a contest and asking people to decorate their bag with things that fit your style. I like that idea and might go ahead and enter.

Glam Bag Goodies:

The La Fresh® Eco-Beauty® Oil-Free Face Cleanser Wipes gently cleanses and detoxifies skin. Contains pineapple, vitamin E, cucumber, marshmallow, oat, aloe and chamomile extracts. These wipes are biodegradable, compostable and are packaged using clean, renewal solar energy. Paraben-free.

Wow! My first package of La Fresh Wipes. I have always gotten the individual samples from various subscription boxes. So, Yay to ipsy for actually giving me a package of them!

Zoya Nail Polish (Giovanna)
$8

Zoya Nail Polish (Giovanna)

Like I said, I knew I’d be getting this and I knew it would be in a gem shade. This shade is GORGEOUS! It’s a stunning emerald green metallic. The depth of the colour is amazing. I’ll be wearing this throughout the fall/winter season.

Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel
$5 / 50 ml

Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel

The Sexy Hair Blow Gel is an alcohol-free gel that thickens hair while adding volume. It also helps retain moisture so your hair never feels dry. Delivers a light to medium hold.

Just apply to damp hair from roots to ends and blow dry to expand volume. I’m not really looking for extra volume for my hair, but I’ll still use this.

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish (Dolly)
$10.70 / 2 ml

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish (Dolly)

This bestselling dusty mauve gloss creates the look of fuller, more voluptuous lips while Vitamins A & E help keep them soft, smooth and protected.

Nice! I have so wanted to try Buxom products...they just look so sexy! This is a pretty shade that I am going to enjoy wearing!

be Delectable Hand Cream (Vanilla & Cream)
$5 / 60 ml

be Delectable Hand Cream (Vanilla & Cream)

This ultra nourishing hand cream is enriched with shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera to smooth, nourish and rejuvenate hands and cuticles. Rich, and never greasy, this beautiful blend is kissed with a delectable scent. Available in four delectable scents, coconut & cream, strawberry & cream, vanilla & cream and lemon & cream.

At first I liked the scent, but then something about it bothered me. I can't explain what it is. You can really smell the vanilla, but I think I would’ve preferred getting the lemon & cream scent. Also, it did have a bit of a greasy feel to me. I’ll still use it, but it’s not something I’d buy.

I’m pretty sure I can hear all the moans and groans from people looking at their Glam Room and seeing all the other products they could’ve received. There are so many variations of bags. I’m pretty happy with my bag, so this girl ain’t got nothing to bad to say. ipsy seems to always get it right for me and this is another high value bag! If you haven’t subscribed to ipsy or are new to subscription beauty boxes in general, I’d go for this one. There usually is a waiting list, but I don’t think you have to wait too long, so go on what are you waiting for? Go sign up HERE. What do you think of ipsy? Were you happy with your Glam Bag this month?
