Ipsy Glam Bag {October 2014}

How pretty is the color of October's Ipsy bag? Teal is a great color and I'll be using this cute bag to store all of the hand creams I've gotten from these beauty bags. Since the theme is Beauty Candy, all of the products or packaging is light and pastel-colored, or it smells like candy itself. And who doesn't love that?

What I got this month:
 Skyn Iceland's Glacial Cleansing Cloths (full size $15, sample $5)
 Figs & Rouge's Hand Cream in Rose Berry (full size $7, sample $5)
 Starlooks' Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure (full size $12, sample $4)
 ECRU New York's Acacia Protein BB Beauty Balm for Hair (full size $12, sample $4)
 Jesse's Girl Mineralized Baked Eye Shadow in Plum Forest (full size $4)

This month's bag is worth $22.
MINI REVIEWS

Skyn Iceland's Glacial Cleansing Cloths

These cleansing cloths smell amazing! The scent is subtle but very fresh and natural, and I like that the cloths aren't too wet or too dry. My skin feels smooth and clean and didn't leave any kind of residue behind. I've been keeping these in my gym bag for after a workout. 

Figs & Rouge's Hand Cream in Rose Berry

Oh my god, guys, this scent; it's floral-y and sweet and I wish I could eat it. The packaging is also too cute for words. It's very moisturizing; it soaked into my skin quickly and isn't greasy. The two other scents (vanilla pistachio and mango mandarin) also sound delightful.

Starlooks' Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure

I'm not a lip gloss girl, so this is a dud for me. I don't like having something on my lips that feels sticky or that my hair will get stuck in. I do like the muted rosy color, but I won't be using this. 

ECRU New York's Acacia Protein BB Beauty Balm for Hair

I've only used this twice, but so far it seems like a great hair balm. The scent is light and nice, the balm is lightweight, non-greasy, it doesn't make my hair crunchy, it contains jojoba, and it has no parabens. I'd have to use it more to say if I really like it or not, but so far so good.

Jesse's Girl Mineralized Baked Eye Shadow in Plum Forest

I think the metallic dark pink color is really lovely and it would be nice for all eye colors, but it's so sparkly. There's isn't a lot of fall-out and it stays put very well, but it does need a few layers to really show the pink color.

What did you get in your Ipsy bag?

  12. The color of the bag is gorgeous! I'm the same way with lipgloss, it just isn't worth it since everything gets stuck in it. I've never heard of a bb balm for hair, but it seems like an interesting concept

  13. I'm very interesting in the cleansing cloths. I want to try them! We got completely different samples, but I can tell that my reviews on ipsy is impacting what they're sending me, which is cool to think that it's actually working!

  23. I look forward to my ipsy waaaaay too much every month! I think those wipes are a really handy, usable item to get. The lotion looks super cute too! I'm planning a Birchbox vs. ipsy post for the month, I think ipsy totally won :)
