Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

October Ipsy Review!

It is time for my October Ipsy review!

This month’s bag was pretty good overall, with the exception of one wild item (think J Cats body glitter and false eyelashes).

4 out of 5 isn’t too bad, right? smile

Okay, let’s dive right in.

So here’s the bag everything came in.

Oct Ipsy

Not my favorite and will be part of a giveaway.  Cute for a tweener, so hopefully it will go to good use!

The first thing I pulled out was this Costal Scents medium eye shadow brush.

Oct Ipsy

I am a big fan of makeup brushes, and I do not have one quite like this, so I will definitely use it.

Second, I pulled out the La Fresh facial cleansing pads sample pack.

Oct Ipsy

These are great!

I actually use cleansing pads every single night as a way to remove my makeup, so I knew I would definitely use these up fast. I ended up taking them with me on my DC trip and using them there. They smell really nice and are totally eco-friendly. These are definitely a winner!

To be honest, though, I would not go out and buy these. While they’re great, my other ones are just as effective and I can get them when I’m already at the store.

Next, I got this Wet n Wild eye shadow compact. Fergie just came out with a line under this brand inspired by her favorite looks.

Oct Ipsy

I think the colors are beautiful.

They don’t look all that great on me right now since I am pale, but they will definitely look nice if I ever stop being so lazy and just tanned my pale self already! Anyway, very pretty.

Fourth, I got the Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel.

Oct Ipsy

I am a fan of their products anyway, so I was excited to see this.

While it definitely goes give volume and smells nice, it doesn’t seem to do much different than my Suave Volumizing Mousse, and is priced higher. So I’m excited about this product, will definitely use it, but will not buy it for myself.

Finally, I got this full-size Zoya blue nail polish.

Oct Ipsy

The color is beautiful, and even looks pretty on.

But honestly?

I’m just not a blue nail polish wearing girl.

I want to be, I do, but I’m just not.

I painted my nails in hopes that it would make me like it on, and I just felt sort of silly. I’m just so plain and traditional, that it seems so way out there for me.

So I’m conflicted.

The color is really pretty, but am I really going to wear it? More than likely, no. So I’m thinking I will probably include this in a giveaway.

Here’s a look at the costs:

Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush-$2.49
La Fresh Travel Wipes, Set of 10- $3.33
Wet n Wild Fergie Center Stage Collection in Desert Fesitval- $4.99
1.7 oz Big Sexy Blow Dry Volumizing Gel- $5
Full Size Zoya Nail Polish in Neve- $8

Total Value: $23.81
Amount paid: $10

So there you have it! My loot.

Check out these for past bags:

April, May, June, July, August, and September reviews.

P really liked her BirchBox this month, so I was glad to hear that.

Thoughts on being still tomorrow, so check in!

I subscribed to Ipsy for a month and was so “meh” about the products I received I ended up cancelling it. It could be I just had a bad month because I love the eye shadow, gel and nailpolish you received!

This was my last month of birchbox, and I didn’t renew. I think I want to try ipsy. Do you have a referral code or anything? (If you do, let me know so you can get credit!)
