Beauty Candy – Ipsy Glam Bag October 2014

It seems like forever since I posted about my Ipsy Glam Bags on my blog or even did a video about it – so I decided I would talk about this month’s bag.  I have been an Ipsy subscriber now since December 2011 but it seems like this year I experienced many challenges with shipping and I’m sad to say that I will ride it out till the end of the year and probably cancel.  Here are the goodies in my Ipsy Glam Bag October 2014.

Ipsy Glam Bag - October 2014

 

REFERRAL LINKS

Ipsy is a $10 a month subscription and includes a variety of beauty products from skincare, makeup, nail polish and nail care and hair goodies.  This months theme: Beauty Candy included a variety of brands, some of which we have received in our bags before and some new.

This month I received the following products:

Ecru New York Acacia Protein BB Cream Beauty Balm for Hair – I received another beauty balm (bb cream) for hair in last months bag and never used it.  Honestly, I don’t know that I would be using this product so I’ll be putting it on the side.  Full size is 1.0 fl oz and retails for $12.00.  The full size product was sent in this month’s bag.

Figs & Rouge Shea Butter Limited Edition Hand cream – we all know I’m a lotion addict and I am looking forward to tossing this in my bag and adding it to my lotion stash.  I received a sample size (maybe deluxe sample) tube of the product.  Full size product is 20ml / 0.67 fl oz and retails for $6.56.  Full size product was sent in this month’s bag.

Jesse’s Girl Mineralized Baked Powder Shadow – this shadow color is really nice and I guess you can never have enough eye shadow.  The full sized product was included in this month’s bag and retails for $3.99

Starlook’s Lip Gloss – this nude toned gloss is really nice and not sticky which I enjoy.  This would be great for travel because it is really tiny.  A Sample sized was received in this month’s box of Guilty Pleasure.  This gloss retails for $12.00 full sized – I’m unsure of the amount included in full size or sample.

Skyn Iceland Mini Glazier Cleansing Cloths – I haven’t used these yet but I’m always a bit leery when it comes to makeup remover wipes or cleansing cloths because of my sensitive skin.  I’ll be sure to do a mini review if I test them out.  These clothes retail for $15.00 for a full sized packet that includes 30 wipes.  The sample included in this month’s bag includes 10 cloths and would retail for approximately $5.00.

Total retail value for the products received in the October 2014 Ipsy bag = $30.00.  This is an estimated value as there is one or two items that I needed to guess the actual amount due to the sample size.  Overall you are getting your money’s worth from the bag, but this bag’s retail value for products included is probably one of the cheapest I have had in the last year.

Ipsy Glam Bag - October 2014

Overall at $10 a month it’s still a pretty good deal considering the number of products you receive.  I haven’t been at all excited for my bags lately because they really haven’t showcased the “wow” factor for me.  While I’m sure I’ll get use out of this month’s contents – especially the makeup bag, I wish there were more items that I could utilize this fall.  I would have loved to see a bronze or brown shadow in the mix.  If you are interested in signing up for Ipsy – it is $10 a month or you can decide to sign up for a full year and get a discount.  You can sign up here: http://www.ipsy.com/r/1o41?sid=ipsypoints&cid=general

Have you tried the Ipsy subscription service?  What do you think of it?  I know I didn’t get into a lot of detail with regard to the bag… but as I use the products (if I use them), I’ll be sure to post about them.

  • I think you got a really nice bag! I love Jesse’s Girl shadows 🙂

  • Aleya Bamdad

    Great bag! Ipsy gets better every month.

  • We got the same except for the eye shadow shade. I’d have loved to have gotten that one!

  • I adore that teal bag

  • This looks like a great bag!

  • I like what you got. I feel the same – will most likely cancel at beginning of the new year.

  • Of all the items, I’m eying that teal faux croc bag the most!!!

  • Ange

    Love that packaging on the hand cream!

  • I think the eyeshadow is cute but I’m a little unfazed by the other stuff.

  • Great bag this month!

  • GREAT bag this month!

  • cindyprimebeauty

    Loved my bag this month!

  • I wish you could tel them not to send you bb creams since you never use them! I wish I could try the Julie G shadow.

  • Justina

    I love your bag!

  • FabZilla_Kath

    I agree w/ what you said… nice items but cheapest in comparison to previous months….

  • Anastasia

    I like that hand cream 🙂

  • Betzy Carmona

    The bag this month is really cute

  • Vic

    I would’ve thought the equivalent of bb creme for hair is a wig!

  • I like the bag itself the most! Looks cute!

  • The hand cream sounds divine! Fig makes for such a warm and unique scent.

  • polarbelle

    Good box! I got the hand cream too!

  • I havent been excited about my Ipsy bags either, I’m really hoping the next few ones near the holiday season will be better!

  • I think the bag this month is underwhelming – but I am curious about the hand cream!

  • This looks like a nice bag! And $10 is a great deal!

  • Hey you got your bag on time this month! 🙂

  • I wasn’t super excited about mine this month :/

  • Very Emily

    The hand creme jumps out at me the most. I think for $10 it’s a total steal even if some of the products are a little underwhelming.

  • We got the same bag (my shadow was blue and hand cream was mango)… I was okay with it but not blown away

  • I’m not a fan of cleansing clothes either, only to use them after I applied foundation with my fingers (since I don’t have running water nearby where I do my make-up!)

  • These cleansing wipes are amazing. Also in love with the handcream. Nice post dear.

  • The Polished Mommy

    I like the color of that shadow…

  • I wasn’t crazy about mine but I think the design is cute!
