October 2015 Ipsy

Happy Sunday ladies!

Today is turning out to be such a wonderful day!

My sister stopped by unexpectedly to surprise me and we are getting ready to head out and spend the whole day together!

Sisters are the best!

Anyways…..my Ipsy bag came in yesterday and just made my day that much brighter!

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription that is $10.  It contains makeup, skin care, hair products and other beauty related items.  You take a beauty quiz first and they pick out 5 products for you each month.

The theme this month is:  “Alter Ego.”

 I love this theme for October.  It is so reminiscent of Halloween.  For one day you can be someone completely different and it’s a load of fun!

I’m not super crazy about this month’s bag.  I love that it’s two-toned with it being “alter ego” themed, but it just feels cheap to me.

Ayres Pampas Sunrise Hand Cream Sample:

This ultra-rich luxurious hand cream is enriched with shea butter, plant emollients and herbal extracts that deeply moisturize dry skin.  Formulated with fast absorbing lightweight oils, it penetrates quickly to leave behind smooth, non-greasy, supple skin with improved elasticity.  Lemongrass, mandarin, bergamot, patchouli and spearmint will awaken your senses, while an exotic background of cedar wood releases a musky scent.

I love receiving hand cream samples because they are the perfect size for throwing in my purse.

Coastal Scents Xpress Line Cosmetic Pencil FULL SIZE!!!  🙂

Xpress Line pencils are for anywhere you want xtra color, xpressive highlights, and xact definition.

Long-lasting formula

Highly Pigmented

This is just a basic black eye liner pencil, but I am always in the need for one!

Lavanila Laboratories Pure Vanilla Deluxe Mini Roller Ball Sample:

The perfect vanilla, this sexy blend of pure Madagascar vanilla, sheer freesia and creamy tonka bean is seductive and magnetic.

You guys know I’m not crazy about receiving perfume in my subscription boxes.  I’m so highly sensitive to fragrances that I very rarely wear anything scented.  But I am in love with warm yet subtle vanilla fragrances.  This is really strong, but if you apply it lightly, it is perfect!

theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in “Committed”:

This long-wearing formula has a comfortable matte finish with no commitment issues.  This matte vanilla mint liquid lipstick is stuck on you without feeling clingy!

This is a beautiful pinky nude shade that is perfect for every day wear.  I’m so excited about the vanilla mint scent too!

IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes Clinically Proven 5-in-1 Mascara Sample:

Clinically shown to increase lash volume by 430%.  Gives luxurious plump and healthy lashes, this conditioning 5-in-1 formula is so effective, it can replace your mascara, primer, peptide growth serum, tint and curler.  Plus, the innovative brush design features a lash ball detailer that gently lifts and curls even the tiniest of lashes.

This sounds like a miracle product.  Too good to be true?  We shall see.

 I’m so happy to see high end products in my bag this month!  I feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve received a bag I was truly excited about.  I love everything I received this month!

The stand out products for me this month are the mascara and liquid lipstick!
