Ipsy Glam Bag Review: October 2015.

I joined Ipsy back in 2011 when it started. I had received all the bags from December 2011 through July 2013. Towards the beginning I was very fond of all the products that they were placing in the bag. By July of 2013, I wasn't into the glam bag anymore. A lot of the products that they were placing in the bags, were products that I would never used. I opted out and unsubscribed. Over the years, I've kept an eye on Ipsy and I like how much they have grown. They now have the quiz and you can update your style. Also my beauty preferences have matured. I thought I'd give Ipsy another shot and I re-subscribed for this month.

October 2015 Glambag Review: Alter Ego

Peter Lamas
Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub
I don't know how I feel about this product. To start off with, I am not a facial scrub type of girl and I dislike everything pumpkin. It did smell nice though and left my face feeling soft.
After reading some reviews? They were very mixed. Some loved the product, and others were on the fence like me.
Would I buy or recommend this product? Definitely not. It's just not my style.
Deluxe LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Gloss in Energy
I really loved this product. I have very dry lips. I'm constantly putting on chapstick. This lasted me over 5 hours. Even after the lip gloss was gone, my lips felt moisturized and were very soft.
After reading reviews? A lot more positive reviews than nevegative. Most of the negative reviews were that they weren't fans of lip gloss, or it was to sticky.
Would I buy or recommend this product? Yes. Yess. Yesss.

Exotic & Spicy Eau de Parfum
I liked that it was a roll on perfume. The smell is ok. It's not the worst, but I like sweeter softer smells. The name does go with the smell. It is a strong fragrance. Perfect for night wear.
After reading reviews? Many would not buy this scent. They complained that it was more for older woman of age. I agree, but that does not mean I would never wear this.
Would I buy or recommend this product? Maybe. If it wasn't to expensive and sold just like the sample. I wouldn't wear this very often, but I would wear it.
BB Tinted Moist Crème SPF30
I am a big fan of Sunscreen and moisturizers. I am no big fan of concealer, foundation, cover up, or putting a ton of cake on my face. I was very pleased with this product. The color doesn't match my skin entirely but it is a nice alternative for moisturizer, sunscreen and cover up all together.
After reading reviews? This was a big hit with a lot of other Ipsy ladies. Most of the girls said the same thing. Great coverage and left their skin nice and soft.
Would I buy or recommend this product? I wouldn't buy it just because I don't use products like these but I would recommend it to other girls.
theBalm Cosmetics
Mary-Lou Manizer
Great shadow for highlighting and giving your eyes a little extra shimmer. Very subtle and gave my skin a soft glow. Loved this product.
After reading reviews? A lot of positive reviews. Got 4.5 stars out of 5. All the positive reviews said the same thing. Very light, but gives you that nice pop of a honey gold color. Very few negatives stated that they liked the color but it was to light and wished that they did not have to build on it.
Would I buy or recommend this product? Yes and yes. I loved the color and the shimmer. I also liked that it was a very soft hue and that it was not dramatic.
Overall I liked this months glambag. I wished there were more darker colors to represent the fall. Maybe I'll just update my quiz again. Did you receive the same products as me? What did you think of them? Did you receive anything different in your glam bag?


  1. Loving that Tarte lip gloss! I've always been intrigued by the Ipsy bags, maybe it's time for me to take the plunge :)

    1. You should definitely look into it! I love now that they match up most products with your style. Plus a lot of the time some of the products are normal size and not just samples!


Thanks for your response!
