First off, I apologize for all of my late posts the past few months - I've recently discovered how ill-prepared I am for this baby and have been running around like a chicken with no head hounding friends for insider tips and tying up loose ends at work before going on maternity leave. But better late than never, no? So without further ado, here's what came in October's (*sigh* last month's) Ipsy glam bag:
What: Ipsy Glam Bag contains 5 deluxe samples and full sized beauty products in an exclusive makeup bag.
When: Glam Bags ship monthly on the 10th
Cost: $10/month (free shipping within the US)
Fun Extras: You can review your products each month to earn points which can be redeemed for bonus items. You can also purchase the products you love straight from the Ipsy website.
Skinvolve Phoenician Secret Scrub - Peppermint - I'm not very big into drinking coffee, but I'm willing to see what this coffee scrub is all about. It can supposedly fade stretch marks, decrease cellulite and help alleviate eczema and rosacea. There's also crushed mint leaves in here to leave you feeling refreshed.
Luna Elara Lip Crayon - This highly pigmented, creamy lip crayon is perfect for any skin tone. I can never have enough lip products (especially subtle pinks and neutrals) so this is going straight in my bag. Plus this is a nice full size lipstick which means it won't get lost in my whirlwind of a purse!
Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer - Light - Eyelid primers are one of those things that I always have on hand but always forget to use and then kick myself in the shin when my shadow ends up making my cheeks look like a unicorn kissed them. So will having another one make me remember to use it? Probably not, but it's nice to know I can hold off the unicorns a bit longer as long as I remember to use this thing.
Tonymoly Peach Hand Cream - This is my favorite scented hand cream ever. I bought the full size version of this from my local Tonymoly store and used it everyday because it smelled divine. As far as effectiveness goes it wasn't the best but it keeps your skin soft between hand washings. But a word of warning - you won't stop sniffng your hands. Forreal.
Verdict: Lately Ipsy has been on point when it comes to curating my glam bags. So fill out those beauty profiles and review your items, folks. It really does make a difference! I'm really happy with October's bag (again, probably because they actually took the time to match items to my profile) and could definitely get some use out of everything in it...ESPECIALLY THE HAND CREAM Y
