October Ipsy Glam Bag

This month's bag was probably one of the best so far this year. Just by looking at the description of the products I knew I was going to love it. Not to mention the gorgeous bag that is totally me(I've been using it as a pencil case in my book bag)! This was definitely a beautiful and great bag so keep reading to see why. :)

To read more on it check out the cards below.

theBalm | What's Your Type? "the body builder" Mascara
Macara!? What? Yep. We finally received a mascara in the glam bag, which made me super excited. If you know anything about me, then you would know mascaras make me very happy! I have tried this a few times since getting it and I will have to say I do like it. I will probably do a mascara review in the future on this one, so look out for that! :)

mirenesse | Lip Bomb Glossy Lacquer Stain
I'm sure most of you saw this one on my Instagram because I was saying how lovely this color was. In case you missed it, here is the link. The consistency of this gloss is pretty thick and a bit sticky, but not in a bad way. I'm not sure how I feel about it being a stain, because it didn't seem to leave a stain. However, it is very pigmented and I loved that! I'm glad I received this color, since my friend apparently received a different color that didn't suit her.

Couture Colour | Pequil Oil Treament
You can never go wrong with hair oils. So for this reason, this also makes me happy. I have been working hard to take care of my hair since I haven't had a decent haircut since March and heat style it pretty often. Oil treatments are always welcomed on this neck of the woods! ;)

be a bombshell | Eye Liner
Another amazing product right here. Why? Because this eyeliner has made me realize how much I missed doing cat eyes with liquid pencils. I pretty much wore this liner for a whole week. It's very pigmented and not too wet at all which is perfect.

Coastal Scents | Eye Shadow
Eyeshadows too!? This bag is on a roll. Mind you I'm not a fan of all this colors, especially not together. However, I appreciate the colors. I really liked the darkest one. It's absolutely gorgeous and pigmented. Oh, and if they look like a big size to you, may I direct you to the top of this page so you can remember the size? Haha



Overall Opinion:
This is probably my favorite bag that I have ever received from this subscription service. It had the essentials for a makeup lover and I can truly say I was very happy with each of the items. My only complain with this service at the moment is: 1) the name... I still can't get myself to get used to it (especially since my laptop autocorrects it to "tipsy" every time), and 2)  the cards with the product description. Maybe I've been spoiled by Birchbox with their nice, clean cards, but I really think ipsy needs to step it up. I know they are a young company(not even a year old yet)but they should already know more or less what looks good. This is constructive criticism because I honestly think it will help them. Why am I saying this? If you see above, I received a gorgeous bag, right? Now, if you look at the card it doesn't go with it at all. I was really close to not photographing it because I didn't like how it looked with the overall feel of this bag. They need a cleaner look. I didn't mind their actual photograph cards on their older ones. But these just don't look tasteful at all. Ok, I'm going to stop now. You get the point. Aside from the card, I will remind you that I loved this bag and I don't see myself unsubscribing from this service anytime soon! :)

**Glam Bag is a monthly $10 subscription service. I pay for it myself.
