Ipsy Beauty Bag October

Formally MyGlam, if you didn’t already know πŸ˜‰ I have to say I’m over the moon with this months bag! I squealed like a small child when I got this bag! I cannot believe I got this for $10!Β  With a new name and a new website, Ipsy/MyGlam revamped themselves to be even more interactive for subscribers and they pumped up the volume and included some AMAZING products this month! This is my 6th month with them and I have to say they just keep getting better. I don’t know how they will EVER top this, but I’m sure they’ll find a way!!

So, let’s get started! Here is the ADORABLE bag! The theme this month is “Hello, Bombshell!” I would 100% identify as a bombshell. I love bold lips, winged liner and glam colors- which is EXACTLY what I got in my Ipsy Beauty Bag!!

First thing I pulled out of my bag was this Pequi Oil Treatment from Couture Colour. It helps restore softness and shine. This .5oz bottle retails for $12. Did I mention I only paid $10 for this box?! And BAM right there- not even the OH MY GOD item and your bag is paid for. Yes, I know. I’m still in shock. This oil smells amazing. I adore hair oils and with the colder winter months ahead, this will be especially useful. With a whole half ounce and only needing a dime sized amount, this will last a long time.

This wouldn’t be a Hello, Bombshell bag without Be A Bombshell Cosmetics πŸ˜‰ They included their Eyeliner in Onyx. This is a full size items and they retail for $14.

Their felt tip eyeliner is HUGE and that’s in a pretty neat way. I have to admit that my favorite liner of ALL TIME is my Starlook’s Precision Eye Pen and it has the world’s tiniest tip. So, I’m willing to get this GIANT sized liner a try πŸ™‚

I did a few swatches and it seems like this is a pretty versatile liner πŸ™‚

Next was a 4-piece shadow collection from Coastal Scents. I have to tell you (though I don’t want to sounds like a complainer) that this is, in face- the world’s smallest eye shadow quad…EVER. Hands down, no doubt about it. But, it’s rare to get an eyeshadow in other subscription boxes, let alone 4 different colors for you to try out!

There is not a bad color in the bunch. On top is Vibrant Red, Frosty Taupe, Vanilla Sky and Raisin Berry. Based on the price of a single eye shadow from coastal scents, I’d say these are each about a half size making this mini quad worth about $4. I secretly love tiny things like this (as long as you will still get uses out of something like this) so I’m excited to put this into my Stick With It Palette πŸ™‚

Next was a mascara by The Balm. They used to be one of my favorite brands, but that is a long story. I have two of their other mascaras so I’m excited to try The Body Builder πŸ™‚ This 3.5ml sample is worth $5.54

Last was the most amazing product I’ve ever gotten in a monthly sample box. This is by Mirenesss and it is “Lip Bomb”. This beauty retails for $35.10. Yes, you read that correctly. It was not a type-0. Not only that but this is a combination lip stain and gloss. It offers amazing, long lasting colors but as a long time user of stain, I expected it to be drying like te rest but it is SO moisturizing.

This picture is silly, I know, but this is what the color looks like πŸ˜‰ It’s a pink toned down red. I LOVE it. I was really hoping for the #2 that a friend got but when I saw this one, my jaw dropped!

Overall, the total sample value (can we even call it that with 3/5 full size items?!) was $70.64! I am blow away by this month’s bag, but I always like MyGlam/Ipsy πŸ™‚ I plan on staying with this company (no matter what they want to call themselves) for a very, VERY long time!

    Which color did you get for the lipstain? I think we got the same color and I was worried it would be too light–but it looks great on you! I’m not happy w/ the colors of the quad–too neutral for me. I put both up for swap BUT….I have been thinking about getting some OCC lip tar and wonder if I could blend them….I love the applicator look–sooooo cute! I didn’t want to test the colors in cased I swapped. WOW what a value! I just got mine today so I hadn’t had a chance to check. I do love the bag πŸ™‚

    Now I’m rethinking swapping after reading your review–thanks πŸ˜‰
