Ipsy October 2015 Glam Bag

Touch In Sol Browza Super Proof Gel Brow Pencil in the shade Mink Wink {Medium to Dark Brown}
Full Size Price: $19.00
Sample size value is approximately: $9.50
This is an all in one eyebrow pencil that comes with a spoolie brush at the end. The color I was given is a good match for any brunette. I found that it applied with ease and did not give off too much color when applied with a light hand. The color matched my eyebrows quite well and it seemed to last throughout the day without any smudging or fading. I found the spoolie brush to be a bit smaller than I prefer but it does the job. Overall, I am quite pleased with the formula and find this to be fairly high quality. I would consider purchasing this product in the future.

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Committed
Full Size: $17.00
Sample size value is approximately: $3.40
This is a liquid lipstick that dries into a matte formula. I found this to be a bit drying when applied even if I had fully moisturized my lips before using. With most matte lipsticks, they can feel dry or tacky so be aware of this when using. The lasting power was quite impressive. I was able to wear this throughout the day while eating and drinking and it took a long while before it started to smudge or come off. I think this pinky nude shade works quite well on all skin tones and matches perfectly for any fall or winter eye-looks. Overall, I like the formula and can handle the dryness with adding a lip-gloss on top. It also has a more mint chocolate scent to me which I found delightful, it is described as having a vanilla mint scent though. I would consider purchasing more shades from this brand.

it Cosmetics Hello Lashes Clinically Proven 5-in-1 Mascara
Full Size: $24.00
Sample size value is approximately: $12.00
This is a mascara that promises increased volume up to 430% and while I had high hopes for this product as I love the it Cosmetics brand, I was fairly disappointed. I really do not like the brush, it is designed to get into every lash with ease but to me just got in the way and made it more difficult to apply in the inner corner areas, it also got gooped with mascara quite easily and was not easy to clean off. The formula is decent but I did not see the vastly improved volume that it claimed. Overall, for the price and because of the design of the brush, I would not purchase the full size of this product.

hey honey Come Clean Facial Scrub Propolis & Minerals Facial Scrub
Full Size: $23.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.22
This is a facial scrub that is for exfoliating and made for all skin types. The formula in the sample I was given was extremely thick and I had to press quite hard to get the product out of the tube. While this concerned me at first, it had no impact on the product itself. I am in love with this product and found it to really make my skin extremely soft and not irritated in the least when used. While it is an exfoliate, it does not feel nearly as harsh on the skin as you may expect. It's quite gentle and very effective. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

Aromachology exotic & spicy perfume
Full Sample Set: $50.00
Full Size Perfume: $55.00
Sample size value is approximately: $10.00
This is a perfume that while is high quality in it's ingredients and overall formula, it's just not a good fit for me with it's scent notes. The scent of this perfume is a mix of honeysuckle, rose, pink jasmine, peony, gardenia, orange blossom, ginger, musk, sandalwood, moss, cinnamon, nutmeg, and black pepper. It is a very exotic and spicy scent as it describes itself but it is also mature and just not my personal taste. I like the idea behind the company of selling a set of samples for you to find your own personal scent but this one is just not my cup of tea. I enjoyed the sample being in a rollerball form as it was easier to test. I would consider trying other scents from this brand.

My October Glam Bag is valued at $40.12.
I pay $10.00 a month, so I received an extra value of $30.12 this month.
Overall, I was moderately pleased with this month's samples. I really enjoyed the lipstick and facial scrub, but was kind of in between with the perfume and mascara. I find myself getting frustrated with some things just not fitting into my preferences within my profile but am overall pleased with this month and hope to see more matched items next time.
