ipsy October 2015 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I was very surprised how fast I got this month’s bag. It was in the mailbox yesterday when my husband checked. Here’s what I got in my ipsy October 2015 Glam Bag.

First off, while I’m not in love with the bag….I still like it. I love the fact that it’s gold. The other side is in black patent. First item that caught my eye is the Emité Make Up Professional Slant Tweezer. I’ve been due for a new one so this might be a good contender. Next up is Nourish Organic Pure Hydrating Argan Face Serum. I’ve used a product from this brand before so I’m open to trying this one out. I hope the scent isn’t the same as even though the product I did try said it’s unscented….the scent made me gag slightly. Then we have the AURORA Gel Effect Nail Polish. The shade everyone who got this is their bag is Inky Dinky. I’m not sure if I’m keeping this yet but I may just to compare how it fares to other brands. Next is the Beauty Without Cruelty Fragrance Free Hand and Body Lotion. Last thing I need right now is more hand and body lotion since I have a ton from Bath & Body Works. I’ll probably have this as an additional gift to someone eventually. Last item is theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick. The shade that everyone who got this item in their bag is Committed.

Overall, I’m most excited about the item from theBalm and I actually laughed at the name of the product (they’re pretty good and cute at naming their stuff!).


ipsy December 2014 Glam Bag

Hey guys! Only a few more days until I’m officially off for the rest of the year! I’m so excited! Pretty much all the gifts are wrapped and the annual baking the Cookie Elf does for work is done. Those suckers were all gone in 3 hours! I made about 6 batches of 4 different types of cookies. I’ve been quite busy, so I managed to only spare a few minutes to show you what I got in my ipsy December 2014 Glam Bag.

The first item that I noticed was the Tarte lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara. I have about 3 of these laying around, so I didn’t really need another one but it’s not bad to have. It’s a decent mascara really. Next we have Beauty Without Cruelty A.H.A. 3% Facial Cleanser. I’m on a Freeman Beauty and Philosophy kick at the moment that I’m not sure if this will be put to use anytime soon. At any rate, I think I’ll keep this in my bathroom cabinet to keep it handy for use later on. I saw the NYX Butter Lip Balm and seriously thought about giving this to my FIL that loves lip balms. Only thing is it’s not clear (shade I got is called Marshmallow), so it’ll be something good for me to try out eventually. The most intriguing item would have to be the Swissco Electroplated Eyelash Curler. I’ve seen items from this brand in TJMaxx but I’ve just never been moved to grab any of them. I have a good eyelash curler so I think I’ll put this towards a goody bag for my niece that loves the color purple. Last item up is the Pixi Fairy Dust. The shade I got is Brightening Bare and while I like the brand Pixi, I don’t really have a use for this item. I think my nieces would get a kick out of this though, so I’ll be saving this one for one of them. The bag this month is a simple black nylon type material zip top pouch. It’s one of my least favorite bags from them since I started my subscription with them, but that’s okay since you win some and you lose some along the way.

And here I thought that last month’s bag was kinda disappointing, LOL! It can only go up from here — can’t wait for next month’s bag already!
