Ipsy Glam Bag October 2013 The Art of Beauty Review

Ah, Ipsy.... How do I love thee? Let me count the ways again.... Only $10 a month? Check. Products that are often FULL-size? Check. Tons of value for my money? Check. Super fun products? Check. On and on and on.... If you are thinking of trying a subscription service but you don't know where to start, start HERE!! Enough of the love letters, let's get to what is in the October The Art of Beauty bag!

Here's first looks:

And the breakdown:

* Zoya Nail Polish in Mason, $8 - Why didn't I get the green??? :( Zoya is my favorite polish and I was so excited to get a bottle. Unfortunately, this color is almost identical to the Selena Gomez polish that I've been obsessed with for the last few months. I received the SG polish as a bonus gift from Ipsy and I wish they hadn't included this color since it's basically identical! :(

* Style Sexy Hair Spray Clay,  $5 -  This product sounds really interesting! It's supposed to provide an allover textured look with a matte finish. I have to put my little dancer's hair in a strict bun for her competitions and I'll be trying this out this weekend in place of the gel we normally use!

* H2O Hydrating Treatment, $7 - The reviews of this product are fantastic!! Some of them even remind me of my beloved La Mer and how I put it aside in the summer because it's too rich and heavy. Super pumped about this! Hope I love it for dry winter skin!! 

* Nourish Organic Coconut & Argan Lotion, $2 - I love that this lotion is organic! The smell is a little fruity/tropical for what I'm wanting right now, but I'm a lotion-aholic, so it will get put to use!

* OFRA Lipgloss Plumper , $13 - This tube is small and I was surprised to find that it's full size! It supposed to contain just a "touch" of plumper. Who is opposed to full plumping?? haha! Always excited to try a new gloss! 

This month's bag had a value of $35 and is once again a great value for $10! If you would like to try Ipsy (and really, it's $10! Who wouldn't??), please use my referral link and GO FOR IT! It's a little present to myself that I look SO forward to each month! Can't wait to see what November brings!

    1. It's pretty much perfect, any time of the year, especially for a pedicure!

  3. I do the La Mer thing, too. Have you tried their gel cream for summer? Love, love, love that stuff!

    I love the nail polish color for fall, though sad it's so close to your other!!

    1. I have tried the gel La Mer... It was okay, just wasn't crazy about it. I have loved the original for so long!!
