October 2016: Ipsy Glam Bag

Yet again the month of October has escaped me! But better late than never!!

I got my bag back in October, but was super busy so I didn’t get to try all of the products like I would have preferred!

Let’s get to the good stuff and I’ll share with you what I got in my pouch this month:

For starters, the theme of this month’s bag was BLACK MAGIC. The bag was cute with with a little Halloween type design.

The Products:

Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely PerfumeRetails – $52 for a 1.7oz bottle at Ulta. This travel size probably costs around $12 (that seems to be the norm for travel size roller balls). To be completely honest I wasn’t a fan of the scent.  This had a woodsy scent and I am more of a fresh/flowery kind of girl! I think that this product is definitely great if you’re trying to find a new scent.

Indi Beauty Buttercream antioxidant Lip Scrub: I think that this sample size container retails for 5.50. The small container at the Indi website retails for $12. This one is pretty small, so I’m not sure how much it would cost!  This product is pretty cool because it is made right here in the US! How neat is that? It is also cruelty-free and vegetarian! I didn’t have the opportunity to try this, but I have heard a lot of great things about it!         

Beaute Basics Satin Taupe Eye Shadow: Retail – $7. This color is great for that brown smokey eye look. It has a little bit of shimmer to it also which is great! It has a soft texture and is easy to apply.

theBalm CabanaBoy Blush: 0.2oz = $1.70 Retail – $21. In my opinion this is a super small sample size. This is a dusty rose blush with plum undertones. You really only need a small amount and it goes a long way! With such a small size, it is hard to use as a blush.

Ciate London Fierce Flicks EyelinerRetails – $20 I am so happy that this is a full size product! This is one of those marker type eyeliners. It glides on super smooth and lasts all day! The only thing I don’t like about this type of eyeliner is how fast the marker part seems to dry out; hopefully that doesn’t happen with this one!

While I can’t pinpoint an exact price of the products in the whole bag, I’ve figured that the bag is worth at least $46 (just a rough estimate)! I think that it is fairly accurate, so the $10 you pay for the bag is such a steal!

The cost of the box every month is $10 + tax and free shipping. So for 5 products (one of which should be full size (I got a few full size items this month!), the low price is a pretty good bargain. The bag is great if you’re looking to try out different products that you may not currently use.
