October Ipsy Bag - Review & Swatches

Hey guys! Guess what day it is? Woot woot! It's October Ipsy bag review day! 

October's Ipsy bag's theme this month is "The Art of Beauty" - Get ready for a month of masterful makeup tricks and delightful beauty treats. Whether you're headed to a fancy Fall ball or impressing the crowd with a jaw-dropping avant-garde costume, this month's brand partners have something to help perfect your Look!

The Bag - Pretty darn cute except definitely not what I expected for an October bag. I can't tell if I'm happy Ipsy went a different route than the typical Halloween bag or disappointed. Either way the bag is adorable and can be used every day instead of something I could only use in October again if it were Halloween-themed. 

LA Fresh Eco-Beauty Oil-Free Face Cleanser
Yay for some face cleansing wipes! I'm always down to try new ones. This one isn't much of a make-up remover although it does take off light make-up pretty well. This boasts to refresh and purify all skin types with aloe, cucumber, papaya, pineapple, marshmallow, jojoba, vitamin c and vitamin e. No wonder why it smells amazing! My face felt clean and refreshed after using this.

Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush
And another brush?! How lucky can this girl get? This brush is made of natural, soft fibers that are perfect for shading the crease and highlighting the brow bone. I really like this because of how dense yet fluffy this brush is. I don't really have anything like it in my brush collection.

Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel
I lurve Big Sexy Hair so I was excited to see this in my bag and because I'm always in the market for volumizing products to use on my flat, thin hair, I was double excited! I use this alcohol-free thickening gel on damp hair and then blow dry and boom -  Holy volume! I've used this quite a few times already and have never experienced my hair feeling dry nor crunchy from the gel. 

Wet N Wild Fergie  Photo Op Eyeshadows in Desert Festival
Do you guys know how many times I've eyed this palette in Walgreens? SO many times. This palette includes two matte (a chocolate brown and a burnt coral), a highlight and two shimmery shades (a copper and brown) that are so incredibly pigmented without a primer. I had no idea! This palette is so perfect for autumn.



Zoya Neve
Neve is a gorgeous metallic sapphire blue polish. I already had this and reviewed it here and absolutely loved it. Super smooth formula and no staining! 



SO, what did everyone get in their bags? Not subscribed to Ipsy yet? What are you waiting for? For $10 a month, you'll get a bag filled with 4-5 deluxe-full sized beauty products at your door. Sign up here!

  1. It was a good bag this month. I got the green zoya in Giovana, the buxom in lovely the wipes, lotion and the volume buster.

  2. i like the fact that it isn't an october or halloween bag!! sometimes those types of bags (holidays) get old and like you said, you can't really use them unless it's that time of year. love the bag especially and the gel!
