Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016

It is that time again!! Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 has arrived!

img_4782

This months theme is Black Magic.  Ipsy teamed up with It Girl artist Valfre (I will pretend to be impressed – I have no idea who that is!)  They say: October’s all about the magic of makeup.  From foundation that makes you look airbrushed to liner that changes your eye shape, we conjured up these potion pairs for badass, bewitching looks.

The bag was designed by Valfre.  I really like it.

We both got bags again this month, and we have a couple of products that we both received in our bags.

Matte Lip Crayon in Florence Fig

Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Lips on lock. Creamy and lightweight formula glides on smoothly and leaves a long-lasting matte finish. Our go-to for a perfect pout.

  • Super cute cap is made to stay put—so the color doesn’t dry out
  • Won’t emphasize lines or imperfections on lips (like many other crayons do)

ipsters who get this product in their Glam Bag will receive the shade Belize Bordeaux or Florence Fig.

  • Belize Bordeaux is a deep wine that has us going back for another glass.
  • Florence Fig is a neutral pink shade that goes with everything and on everyone
  • I got Florence Fig

This Brand’s the Bomb

We’re stuck on these sticks. Every product comes in crayon format. Simple to use, multifunctional and won’t ever spill in your purse. Mix and match to create the perfect kit for your daily (or worldly) travels. On-the-go beauties can’t get enough. No muss and no fuss allowed.

Our Thoughts

First of all, the packaging!  I totally was annoyed at first thinking the top had come off in transport!  I even dug in the bag to make sure it wasn’t in there, and I was getting ANGRY – was like, how in the heck did this get here with no top on it?  I was duped!

Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

I typically am not a matte lover, so will give it a try, or find it a suitable home 🙂  Matte typically is very drying, and we all know I like some moist (ewww that word!) lips!  This is a very generous sample and there is no detectable fragrance.

Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

Their site is offering 30% off orders of $40 or more (um that is a lot of lip crayons!) using code IPSYFALLFUN30.

Value

Full size is $28, Sample – they sell this exact size on their site  for $10.66 (3 for $32)

Trust Fund Beauty
Gimme Good Face – Face Primer

img_4801

This Product’s Amaze Factor

The #NoFlaws filter we’ve always wanted. Smooths out any imperfections and minimizes pores. Totally selfie-worthy.

  • Blurs the lines. Fills in and disguises fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Koala-approved. Light eucalyptus scent perks us up.
  • So silky you’ll want to use it all over your body (but don’t)

This Brand’s the Bomb

In this brand, we trust. With laser sharp focus on lips and nails, these color mavens take their business seriously. Trend-forward shades that are always so hot right now. Plus, they’re committed to minimizing toxic ingredients, vegan and cruelty-free (no animal testing here). And with sassy shade names like “Do You Know Who My Father Is” and “Cool Story Bro,” we’ll be crushing on this baby for awhile.

They are offering 40% off with code IPSYGLAM, but the product is not on their site, and google couldn’t find it for sale anywhere?  Why does IPSY do that???  Even if you like this product, you can’t repurchase?

Value

Full size – well I have no idea since you can’t buy it, so it is really worth nothing.  I guess that isn’t fair…but really don’t know what value to put on this sample.

theBalm Cosmetics
Hot Mama Blush

Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Mama’s got a brand new blush. This all-in-one blush and highlighter goes on silky smooth against our skin. Plus we love how the super cute packaging looks like a mini romance novel.

  • Pinky peach hue has us glowing
  • Just the right amount of shimmer for all occasions
  • Long-lasting formula works on all skin tones

Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Brand’s the Bomb

Beauty in 5 minutes. That’s a philosophy we dig. Founder Marissa Shipman believed women should feel their best with just a few simple products. But “the ones” she wanted hadn’t been created yet. So she took matters into her own hands—turning her kitchen into something resembling the trailer in Breaking Bad (but without the whole explosive part). Ten years later, her paraben-free, cruelty-free creations have taken the world by whimsical storm.

Our Thoughts

I love theBalm, but this sample is tiny, I have no idea how I would get a blush brush in there.  But honestly, it would give you the chance to see if the color works for you and if you want to buy the full size.

The color seems to be universally flattering, and is buildable.  If you have a deeper skin tone, I am not sure this shade would show up.

theBalm is offering 20% off with code IPSY20 on their site.

Value

Full size is $21, Sample $1.68 (told you it was tiny!)

Kokie Cosmetics
Kokie Nail Polish in Heavenly

Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

A castle on a cloud. This bluish lilac shade was sent from above to grace our nails. A compliment-magnet (we get them every time). #Blessed

  • We all shine on. Glossy finish adds luster to any look.

  • A chip off the old… nothing. Withstands everyday wear and tear.

  • Good for the entire week. The stay-put formula lasts.

Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Brand’s the Bomb

Sounds like kooky. Looks like fun. The latest from Chris Chon, a cosmetics powerplayer and trendspotter with over 20 years of experience. He’s the man who brought us SinfulColors. And now he’s back in the nail game with an all-new line of vibrant hues and so-cute-we-want-to-hug-it striped packaging that’s the perfect fit for playful personalities. We’re going cuckoo for them.

Our Thoughts

We both got this in our bags!  The color is cute, I doubt I would have picked it our or purchased it, but I love nail polish and will for sure give it a try, or find it a good home!

The brush is nice.

Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

It is pretty opaque in one coat.  2 coats would be needed for full opaqueness.  I used no base coat in this swatch.

They are offering 25% off with code IPSY25.

Value

Full size is $6 and this is a full size sample.

Daily Lip Nourisher with Mango and Shea Butters

Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Newsflash: Petroleum doesn’t hydrate lips. It just creates a coating. But this petroleum-free balm deeply moisturizes. Totally headline-worthy.

  • The doctor is in. Mango seed butter heals with vitamins A, C and E.
  • Hello, sunshine. Rice bran oil protects from UV rays.
  • Soften up. Jojoba oil soothes chapped lips.

Ipsy Glam Bag October 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Brand’s the Bomb

East meets West. Founder and former actress (she played a Power Rangers villain!) Jennifer Yen knows a thing or twenty about the damage heavy makeup can do to the complexion. On a mission to save her skin, she brought her grandmother’s Asian beauty secrets and the latest French technology together to create super nourishing products—partnering with the best herbalists and research labs in Korea and the city of lights. It’s a kicka** combo we love.

Our Thoughts

I love lip balm, and am sure I will use this.  I gave it a try and the scent is nice (I guess it is the mango) and it feels really nice and moisturizing on my lips.

They are offering 30% off with code ipsylipsy30.

Value

Full size is $16, Sample $6.61

Sally’s Box
Aqua Moist Gel Cream

img_4799

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Your very own Secret Garden. Powerful flower water from Provence roses, chamomile and lavender goes deep beneath the surface of your skin for the ultimate moisture bomb.

  • Ice Ice Baby. Refreshing gel-cream feels cool to the touch.
  • Deep sea water soothes skin with natural minerals.
  • Aloe vera leaf water gives our skin a much-needed hydrating wakeup call.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Moisture. Moisture. Moisture. That’s their skincare philosophy—The brand believes hydration is the answer to all of your skin concerns. And it’s only natural since 70% of the earth’s surface is water and 70% of the body is made up of it too. They develop unique products that go deep and moisturize from within using the most effective ingredients the earth has to offer. Soak it in.

Our Thoughts

The site linked through Ipsy doesn’t have this product which is weird.  I did find it here.

Value

Full size is $43, Sample $4.30

MAKE UP FOR EVER

Pioneers of HD makeup and body art, they keep us looking fabulous in every light and dimension.

Value

Full size $43, Sample $7.20

Ciaté London
Fierce Flicks Eyeliner

img_4800

This Product’s Amaze Factor

The little black dress of liners. One sweep of this intensely dark shade is all you need to create a chic look. Easy to apply and goes with everything.

  • Exacting standards. Precision felt tip makes drawing thin or winging out simple.

  • It’s not going anywhere, thanks to the long-lasting and budge-proof formula.

  • Keep it smooth. Glides on, even over eye shadows.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Pretty, fun and fearless. That’s the mantra of this brand founded by Charlotte Knight, a nail technician on a mission to bring our beauty bags more color and sparkle. They empower us to do more with our makeup—make it effortless for girls (and guys) of any skill level to express themselves. And with fashion IT girl Olivia Palermo as their Creative Director, we know we’re in stylish hands.

Our Thoughts

We both got this in our bags.  If Crystal likes it, she will have two!  I really don’t do eye liner that often!  You can purchase on their site and they offered no promo codes.

Value

Full size is $19, Sample $11.45.

Final Thoughts and Value

Kerry’s Bag: $36.40

Crystal’s Bag: $28.95 + the primer

We both got at least $10 worth of products to try.  Kerry is most excited about the nail polish and the lip balm.  Crystal is most excited about the eye liner!  If you missed previous Ipsy posts you can find them here!
