Ipsy October 2014 Review

Disclosure: This post contains referral links


Ipsy is such a fun subscription. At only $10.00 a month, you get a glam bag full of 4-5 beauty items.  You can’t beat the price and I love the glam bags.  You fill out a survey about your makeup preferences and then Ipsy sends a bag geared to your preferences.  Once you get your bag, you can review your items online, and tell Ipsy what you think.  When you complete reviews, you earn points, which can be redeemed for special items.

The Details:

Cost: $10.00 a month

What’s in the bag? Each month, subscribers will receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using.

Shipping: The Glam Bag is available only in the United States and its territories, PO Boxes, and APO, DPO and FPO boxes, and, most recently, Canada and its military locations around the world.

When will I get my Ipsy? Glam Bags are shipped around the middle of every month. You can expect your Glam Bag to arrive within 7-10 business days after it has shipped. You will receive an email with tracking information once your order ships.

When am I billed?  You are billed the 1st of the month

How do I cancel?  You can cancel from your account.



I love Ipsy’s shipping envelopes.  I always save mine, and use them for trades.


First Look: I was really surprised to see such a huge perfume “sample” in the bag.  It was so big, it didn’t fit in my Ipsy bag.


The theme for this month is “Beauty Candy”.


The bag is really pretty this month, but I don’t like the side zippers, because I feel it gives some wasted space at the top.  The bag reminds me of a retro couch.


Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser $4.00  This is a nice cleanser.  I tried it tonight and it left my skin feeling fresh and clean.  I like saving sample cleansers for travel.


Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Pore Minimizing $9.75 I have the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation and love it.  This is a new pore minimizing version.  I don’t have too much trouble with pores, so I couldn’t tell much of a difference.  This works just as great as my Smashbox primer, so this is also going in my travel stash.


ROGUE by Rihanna EAU DE PARFUM SPRAY $9.99  I was really surprised to see such huge sample in my bag.  This has a fruity/sweet/floral scent to it and has a combination of jasmine, plum and patchouli.  It’s a pretty unique scent and I am not sure if I like it or not yet.


MicaBeauty Mineral Eye Shadow $14.95  This is a greens shadow with a shimmer.  It also has some black in it.  I was going to do a swatch, but I couldn’t get one to look good on my arm.  I tried it out with a little brush along my liner and I liked the look.   I will save this color more for evening looks, as it can look pretty dramatic.


Starlooks Lip Gloss $6.00:  I am guessing on price, as it looks about half the full size.  This is .3 oz, but I couldn’t find the full size amount.  This is a nice nude shade with no stickiness.

041Final Thought:  The total value of this bag was $44.69.  I love getting a travel version of the primer and cleanser.  The lip gloss is a great color and the shadow is great for evening looks.  I am still deciding on the perfume, but it will be easily traded if I don’t like it.  For $10.00/month, Ipsy is a fantastic subscription to get beauty products at a great price.  If you want to sign up for Ipsy, click HERE.

    I also got the lip gloss and the cleanser. I love the smell of the cleanser and so does my husband! In addition I got the mango mandarin hand cream (smells great too), liquid eyeliner, and H20 highlighter that I’m not quite sure how to use. I’m happy with my bag!
