ipsy Instagram Giveaway

Hey guys! You have seen my post on the ipsy October 2013 Glam Bag and know that some of the items I got from there will be up for grabs in my next giveaway. Well, here it is!

ipsy Instagram Giveaway Prize

Being that I already have Zoya Giovanna and didn’t want to start collecting more makeup from Bella Terra Cosmetics or Starlooks, I’m giving those away along with the ipsy makeup bag that came with it, a double pack of Nivea lip butter in Raspberry Rose Kiss (my favorite flavor from them so far!), Almay liquid lip balm in Truffle Kiss, CoverGirl Queen Collection eye shadow in Vintage, and Physicians Formula Mineral Wear eye shadow duo in Taupe Minerals. But here’s the kicker….I’m adding at least another prize to this lot shortly as well! So what does it take to win this set of goodies? You have to be a follower of mine on Instagram and repost my Instagram picture of the giveaway items and tag me with the hashtag #kittyipsyoct2013.

ipsy October 2013 Glam Bag

Alrighty! I know that it wasn’t too long ago that I posted about the ipsy September 2013 Glam Bag, but here’s my take on the one for this month so I can move on to starting my giveaway (and you’ll see why). Here’s my take on the ipsy October 2013 Glam Bag.

Sorry for the lighting. It was a very cloudy day when I took the group shot. For my second ipsy Glam Bag, not bad at all again. I didn’t really care though for the makeup bag, but it’s actually part of the challenge ipsy has going this month to win more prizes. Eh….it holds no interest for me really, but I’m passing this on (as well as some of the other items from this month’s Glam Bag) to others in a giveaway with other stuff. The brand I am most familiar with from this bag is Zoya. I have a wall nail polish rack that is filled with Zoya. I have even more Zoya shades spilling out on top of my Melmers. I love Zoya. It’s a great brand, works well and lasts long on my nails. I already own this shade, Giovanna, so it will be part of my next giveaway prize. I have heard good things about Coastal Scents, so I’m eager to try this makeup brush. I don’t own a good set of makeup brushes, so this definitely helps in the makeup tools department. I haven’t tried it yet, but I will admit I have high expectations for this one. Crossing my fingers for the best! I have heard of the brand Sexy Hair before. I’ve never used anything from them though. I can’t wait to try the texturizing spray clay out. It’s supposed to give my hair more volume. I got another item from Starlooks this month and this time it’s a lip pencil. I have enough lip liners, so this will go on into my giveaway prize stash as well. The last item is from Bella Terra Mineral Cosmetics. I currently am not interested in this item as I have a ton of makeup and mineral makeup, so to the stash it goes as well! It’s a pretty good bag overall — I just don’t have use for half of the items. It won’t go to waste though!

Overall, not bad. I did expect more and it came a little bit short, but this just gives me the opportunity to pass them on to others that may be more interested in some of them items that didn’t catch my eye. I can’t wait for next month’s bag! I’m hoping that it’s better than the 2 I’ve got so far. We’ll see….
