Ipsy Bag: October 2013

Today I'm going to show you what was in my Ipsy bag for the month of October! The theme for this month's bag was "The Art of Beauty." The bag's design was okay.. nothing that screams out to me. I always enjoy getting these bags because they are perfect for keeping your purse organized!

This is what I received in my bag:

Zoya Nail Polish in Giovanna
This color is super gorgeous! I decided to spare your eyes the pain of me trying to swatch the colors on myself! What you see is what you get with this color! 

*Buy 2 Nail Polishes, Get 1 Free & FREE Zoya Remove+ at Use the code: IPSYZ3 at checkout.

Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel
I love Sexy Hair products! I had never tried this blow dry gel before so I was super excited to see it in my bag! I have really enjoyed it - especially since I have thick hair that is hard to tame while blow drying! I really like that it's a blow dry gel for taming and a volumizing gel to give you that extra volume that you want!

*Receive $5 off $25 or more purchase of Sexy Hair products at Use the code: 105339 at checkout.

LA Fresh Eco-Beauty Oil-Free Face Cleanser Wipes
Theses wipes aren't anything special. I have plenty of other cleansing wipes that have worked better for me but I don't hate them. They smell great which is always a plus in my book!

*Receive 30% off any purchase at Use the code: IPSYLOVE30 at checkout.

Nourish Organic Deeply Nourishing Coconut & Argan Body Lotion
I absolutely hated this lotion. I couldn't get past the scent to even see if the lotion was a good product. As soon as I took the lid off, the scent made me cringe! What's funny is that I've seen a lot of reviews and people love the scent. I'm not sure what they are smelling but this lotion is HORRIBLE!! I threw it away right after I smelt it!

*Receive 20% off ANY Nourish Organic product at or at any Target store. Use the code: Nourish20 at checkout.

Starlooks Lip Pencil in Tickle Me Pink
I really like the color of this lip pencil! I am beginning to take more interest in lipsticks and lip liners so I was happy to see this in my bag! I've really been enjoying Starlooks products! 

*Receive 20% off purchases of $35 or more at Use the code: IPSY at checkout.

So out of the 5 things I received, I was happy with 3 of them. The wipes were just a "meh" for me and the lotion was a complete dud! You learn over time that it's always a hit or miss with subscription box services. I think I'm going to retake the quiz on ipsy's website to see if I can get anything different in the next bags! 

For those of you that don't know about IPSY, it is a monthly makeup subscription service. Each month you will receive a bag filled with 4-5 deluxe samples or full sized products. If you would like to join ipsy, you can do so by using my referral linkWhat's great about this service is that you can skip a month if you don't have the money or just don't want the bag for some reason that month. No penalty whatsoever! As you can see from the products I received in this bag, it's a great bag for only $10! 

There is usually a waiting list for this high demand subscription service but you shouldn't have to wait too long before getting in on the goodies! I was on the list for maybe 2 weeks and I'm so glad I waited! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me! :)

*Disclosure regarding my ipsy referral link: If 2 people sign up through me, I get one free product in a future ipsy bag. (That goes for anyone who is an active member of ipsy or a current waitlister. You only get 1 free product per month meaning that if you have 3 people sign up in the month of August, only 2 of them will count. This process starts over the first of every month.)

  1. I also go the wipes, but haven't tried them yet.

    And the polish was also in my bad, in the same color---such a pretty color!
