October 2013 Ipsy Bag

Hey everyone! Today is a quick look at my October Ipsy bag! This month's theme was 'The Art of Beauty' and the bag had a cute little saying on it to reflect that.

Sexy Hair Blow Dry Gel. I hadn't tried this before, but I've fallen in love with it! It does wonders for giving my fine, oily hair lift and volume.. without making it sticky or greasy! I will definitely purchase a full-size version of this when my sample runs out!

LA Fresh Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes. At first, I didn't like the smell of these when it was near my face, but the more I used them the more I got used to it. They did remove my makeup well, and they left my face feeling clean and refreshed with no residue. Plus, they didn't make my skin turn into an oil slick by the time I woke up the next morning. I wouldn't actively go out of my way to purchase these (mainly because I have no clue where to buy them) but they weren't bad at all!

Zoya Neve. Described as a "sapphire metallic blue," Neve is a great color for fall and I bet it would look even prettier with a matte top coat over it!

Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush BR-C-N02. I haven't tried any of the Coastal Scents brushes before, but I do rather like this one! The bristles are soft and it didn't shed when I washed it before using it. It's good at both packing shadow onto your lid and smudging out your crease. I'd think about purchase more brushes from Coastal Scents the next time I'm in the market for some.

Wet N Wild Fergie CenterStage Collection Photo Op Eyeshadow. Love Wet N Wild shadows, but do NOT love these colors. I know they'd look awesome with my blue eyes since orange and blue are opposites on the color wheel, but I have no problem being honest with myself (and you) and saying that I will never wear these. Like ever. So it's going into the donate pile.

So even though Birchbox was a total bust for me this month, Ipsy still managed to hit it out of the park! This is why I'm glad I keep both subscriptions, because even if (or when) one (read: usually Birchbox) fails me, the other (read: so far always Ipsy) manages to come through and give me some pretty awesome stuff! Even though I won't use the eyeshadow based on the shades I received, I still like the brand so I'm giving Ipsy a perfect score this month! Huzzah! 
RATING: 5 out of 5 STARS
