ipsy Review - October 2018
ipsy sends its members a beautiful Glam Bag with 4-6 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products based on your ipsy profile. Their bags always have an incredible value (well over the $10 cost), and I am always amazed at how they do it. I don’t always love everything in the bags, but I always always think it was worth my $10.  They also offer a rewards system for subscribers.  You can earn points by reviewing the items you get in your bags, sharing your ipsy bag on social media, etc. You can then redeem your points for products (often items which were featured in previous months) on the ipsy website.

Cost: $10/month
Ships To: United States and Canada including overseas military installations via DHL.
Coupon Code: N/A

ipsy Review - September 2018
ipsy ships around the 10th of the month via USPS.

ipsy bags have a ton of variation, so they don’t include product details on their information card. If you happen to stumble on this review, don’t be surprised if you end up with an entirely different bag. Specific details on the items in your bag can be found in your ipsy account online.

My October 2018 ipsy Glam Bag included the following items:

~The Bag: Such a fun bag this month.  It’s bright red (HOT) and has a masquerade mask embossed on the front.

~AKAR SKIN Soothe Face Oil (2mL) ($6): I am hesitant to test this out only because it’s designed for dry and normal skin.  My skin is a mess right now (stress), so I don’t want to make it even worse by testing too many new things.  I’ll put this aside and use in a month or two.

~LARITZY Lip Gloss in Aura (full-size) ($16): Aura is an iridescent sheer gloss.  It can be worn alone or over another gloss or lipstick.  I’ll likely use it as a topper for some of the fanastic shades of matte lipstick I have!

~MORPHE Mini Blush in Spirit (3g) ($6): Spirit is a “dusty pink sheen”.  It’s a “mini” blush, but it’s highly pigmented so it’s going to last quite a while.  It’s a great neutral shade and didn’t have too much fallout.

~WANDER BEAUTY Lift Off Purifying and Brightening Peel Off Mask (10mL) ($5.67): A bright berry pearl purifying and brightening peel off mask packed with intense antioxidants to instantly detoxify and awaken dull skin.  I am going to give my skin a little longer to calm down and will then give this a go.  I am anxious to text it though because it smells so good!

~PIXI BY PETRA Mesmerizing Mineral Duo in Plum Lace (0.75g) ($1.56):  I have a ton of shadows (that I rarely use as it is), so I am not overly excited by this. The shades are pretty though!

All totaled my October 2018 ipsy Glam Bag had a value of $35. I am happy with the value and the mixture of products included this month.
