It was lovely to come back from my Honeymoon with all sorts of awesome beauty goodies waiting for me!
I really think this is the best bag out there, especially for the price…just $10 a month! If you are looking to start a beauty subscription, I would definitely try Ipsy first.
The theme of this month’s bag is “Beauty Candy” Again, the theme is a bit odd to me. At most, 2 of the items match it!
Anyways…. Here is the October Ipsy bag!
1) ECRY New York Acacia Protien BB Cream – 1 oz. (FULL SIZE)
This is apparently a beauty balm for hair. I guess it’s almost like a leave in conditioner? I’m
not too sure I will love this, these kinds of things generally leave my hair pretty greasy. I am
willing to try it though. This one smells slightly manly which I think is odd. Also, this is a
full size. I 100% thought this was a sample size!
Full Size: $12.00 My Value: $12.00
2) Jesse’s Girl Mineralized Baked Eye Shadow in “Graphite Frost” – .07 oz. (FULL SIZE)
Ok what am I missing about ”baked” beauty items? What is the big deal with these? This
looks pretty cool in the packaging, but I am sure after swiping it with a brush and putting it
on my eye it will just be grey. The case for this is also pretty darn big, I wouldn’t want to
have this taking up that much space in my beauty collection! I guess I really have to be
thankful though, some people got this shadow in bright blue, yellow or green! I like this
color the best.
Full Size: $3.99 My Value: $3.99
3) Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths – 10 cloths
I could always use more makeup remover clothes. I have no clue what makes these any
different than the rest on the market, but they are a welcome addition to my beauty cabinet!
The only thing I can say I noticed right away was the smell. It was clean, but not
overpowering. I really like that.
Full Size: $15.00 for 30 My Value: $5.00
4) Noyah All Natural Lipstick in “Deeply in Mauve” – .049 oz.
Meh. A purple lipstick like this is totally not my thing.
Full Size: $18.00 for .16 oz. My Value: $5.51
5) Figs & Rouge Mango Mandarin Hand Cream – .67 oz. (FULL SIZE)
This smells really good. I think it is the perfect size and weight to throw in my purse, which is exactly what I did! I am not much of a lotion user, but it is nice to have some just in case. When it’s in a small, light container like this, it’s a perfect candidate!
Full Size: $6.56 My Value: $6.56
6) BONUS - Milani Runway Lashes in “Black” – .3 oz. (FULL SIZE)
I got the next two items with my ipsy points. I can always use another black mascara, not sure there is anything new and exciting about this one.
Full Size: $4.99 My Value: $4.99
7) BONUS - Milani Liquid Eye Liner Pencil in “Black” – .04 oz. (FULL SIZE)
This is the reason I chose the Milani items as my bonus gift. I really like the sound of this eye liner. I love liquid liners and I have just recently started using pencil liner (go me!) so I am excited to try it!
Full Size: $6.99 My Value: $6.99
Final Cost: $10.00
Final Value w/o Bonus: $33.06
Final Value with Bonus: $45.04
My first thought on this is it’s a pretty dang low value. I guess I shouldn’t complain, it’s still well worth the $10 I paid! I really love most of the items and definitely see myself getting use of them. The lipstick is a bust, but thankfully its tiny so I don’t see a big loss there!
