October Ipsy Glam Bag

October 2015 Ipsy Bag

Yesterday on Instagram I semi-promised to have a review of the NYX eyeshadow trio from last month’s Ipsy bag for today, and speaking of Ipsy I realized I hadn’t posted my bag for this month. So here today I have my Ipsy Glam Bag for the month of October, and frankly I am not that excited about it.

Starting with the bag itself, I find it just OK. As you can see, one side is gold and the back side is black. It is in the shape of a square and I don’t see it being a useful makeup bag for a purse, or even to take out on the town.

On the left is the Peter Lamas Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub, which arrives at an opportune moment. Not only am I on a real pumpkin kick lately, but I am in need of a travel size face wash. It contains 29ml (1oz) and is worth $7.

Next to it is the Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask, a product I am entirely unfamiliar with but a girl can always use some hair products. Based on the 4oz full size, this 1oz of product is worth $3.75.

When I saw this in my bag my makeup loving heart dropped. This month every bag came with either this or a sample size Mary Lou Manizer; guess which one I wanted? TheBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick is worth $3.

The fourth product is the IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes Clinically Proven 5-in-1 Mascara, a sample which based on the full price is worth $12. Probably the best part of this bag as I cannot bring myself to pay IT Cosmetics prices.

Lastly I received the Emité Make Up Professional Slanted Tweezers. Definitely a brand I’ve never heard of and a product that baffles me. Depending on where you look, eBay or Amazon or their own company website, these tweezers retail between $2.99 and $34.00. That is a massive gap that can make this month’s bag totally worth it or a total lie.

To reiterate my opening, not impressed with this bag. None of the products wowed me and I am very weary that this bag is worth between $28.74 and $59.75. Don’t get me wrong, I only pay $11 (with taxes) so this is still a good value, but I would like to know what is going on with those tweezers. After looking everything over I retook the Ipsy quiz, maybe next month will be better.
