September Ipsy Glam Bag

Monday, September 26, 2016

This month, I received my 35th Ipsy Glam Bag. This month’s theme was “Glamazon.” Here is what I received:

I didn’t realize until now that the girls’ on the bag are spelling out IPSY!

eyeshadow
Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Teaser – $38 for 5 colors, a value of $7.60:
A matte chestnut shade that’s ideal for creating the perfect doe-eyed look.
20% off with code IPSY20 until 10/31/16.
My Thoughts: A nice neutral eye color when you want something but don’t need a lot. You can also blend it or layer it with other colors.

serum
Eau Thermale Avene Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum – $32 for 1.35 oz (of cream, rather than serum), I received .1 oz, a value of $2.37:
Incredibly soothing, it keeps skin hydrated for a full 24 hours.
20% off with code IPSY20 until 10/15/16.
My thoughts: This does feel soothing and is nice to put on at night.

lip
Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme – $28 for .14 oz, I received .05 oz, a value of $10:
Glides on clear and leaves lips plump and pink.
Free Melted Chocolate Lipstick With Purchase with code IPSYGWP until 10/31/16.
My thoughts: I was scared to try this. I finally did just so I could review it! At first, I felt nothing and was happy I had a new lip gloss. After about a minute it started tingling and hurting a small amount. My lips do look pink but I don’t know if they look plumper! I did like that it smelled like strawberries.

highlighter
tre’StiQue Mini Highlight Stick in Maldives Luminescent – $55 for a set of 5 minis, a value of $11:
This soft cream-gel formula glides on gently—brightening with what we call “adult shimmer,” perfect for any age or time of day.
30% off $40 or more with code IPSYSEPT30 until 10/31/16.
My thoughts: I have a bunch of minis from this brand and I love them all. This went on smoothly and made me look more awake right away.

hair
Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment – $27 for 4 oz, I received 1 oz, a value of $6.75:
Anyone can get a PhD (Perfect hair Day), thanks to this styling treatment that smooths, volumizes, conditions, strengthens and polishes.
Free Travel-size Full Dry Volume Blast with Orders over $22 with code IPSYDVB until 10/31/16.
My thoughts: This is the first time I have finished a product I received from Ipsy before I posted my review! I have found only the stickiest gels can keep my curls in all day, but this did it too! And I loved the smell of it.

Once again, I pay $10 a month for these bags. I love seeing what comes my way each month! The value received this month was approximately $37.72, which was less than last month, but not bad overall. I think Gabbie will want the bag this month, and my favorite item in the bag was the hair styling treatment.
