October Ipsy Glambag – Worth The Price?

Let’s talk about the October glambag. I must admit I wasn’t too excited when I saw the sneak peeks of what I would be getting.

This month, we paired up two of our favorite trends—crimson and lace—to make your October a little more mysterious. We hope that you’re batty for it.

THE DESCRIPTION (off of Ipsy’s website)

Urban Decay – 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion

Why You’ll Love It

  • That 24/7 callout is no joke. This pencil really does last allll day.
  • It glides on like butter. Meaning that crisp lines, graphic looks, even a cat eye is actually easy. (We’re not just saying that!)
  • The inky black shade blends like a dream, so you can really smoke it out for that rockstar chic, morning-after-an-epic-party vibe. (Or not! You do you.)

IT COSMETICS -Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder

Why You’ll Love It

  • It’s so light and airy, you can’t feel it on and it gives you a soft, airbrushed look in seconds.
  • It’s made with silk, collagen, and antioxidant-rich ingredients, which means it’ll make your skin super happy.
  • We passed it around the office and the translucent shade works on sooo many skintones.

DOUCCE – Freematic Highlighter in Solstice

Why You’ll Love It

  • We’ve hardly met a highlighter we don’t like—but this extra-pigmented formula won our hearts for being super smooth (like pure silk) and so easy to blend.
  • That. Shine. Tho. Your BFFs will legit need shades to handle your glow.
  • It’s so pretty as an eyeshadow, too.

BLAQ -Mask

Why You’ll Love It

  • It’s like a detox for your skin. Activated charcoal (the main ingredient) gets rid of toxins and impurities deep in your pores. We used it and felt so squeaky clean—no scrubbing needed.
  • Got stubborn blackheads? We know the struggle. This mask gets rid of them super fast and peels off easy.
  • It takes 15 mins to work, and that’s plenty of time to post #maskselfies.

MDMflow – Liquid Matte Lipstick in Retro

Why You’ll Love It

  • We love the look of liquid lipstick. But we can’t stand when our lips feel dry. That’s why we’re way into this creamy, comfy, hydrating formula. (Shout out to Vitamin E!)
  • We applied a few swipes in the morning and it stayed in place for 8 hours—no touch-ups required.
  • This shade lives up to its name. Retro is the most perfect (and flattering) vintage-y pink we’ve ever seen.

THE REVIEW

Urban Decay – 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion: Is a typical eyeliner pencil. One of the ones you have to sharpen up. The only difference is that it is creamy and applies smoothly. It is also highly pigmented and long lasting in both the waterline and on the lid. At least for me. I have no problem with other the price of the full-size version.

IT COSMETICS – Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder: Let’s start off by saying that I do not know if any of the other claims are true, I did not get that far because this powder does not work with my skin tone. No matter how much of this I use, it still leaves a white cast under my eyes. So, there is no way I am setting my face with this. I would not purchase this.

DOUCCE – Freematic Highlighter in Solstice: Love this! This highlighter is a beautiful light gold shade that blends easily into the skin and looks amazing. It is not pigmented with one swipe, but it is buildable, which I like. You are able to get a full of glow or a glow from within look. This highlighter is Divinity Approved.

BLAQ – Mask: It is kind of hard to review a skin care product when you only get a sample size. What kind I say other than it’s a mask. A black mask that you peel off. It did leave my face feel, refresh. What I mean by that is it took off some of my dry, dead skin (also my peach fuzz) and left it feeling tight and a bit smoother. Plus, it is fun to use scare the hell out of your mom. Lol😄 ! Not sure if I would purchase this.

MDMflow – Liquid Matte Lipstick in Retro: I did not like this at all. Okay, that is a lie. I like the shade of it. But, that is it. It took at least three coats to get it to full opacity and then had the nerves to be super sticky when it dried down. I couldn’t even test out how long it lasted because the feel of it on my lips was gross. I would not purchase this.

OVERALL

Is the October Glambag worth its price, no? I would spend $8 for it, but not $10. I just did not like enough of the products. The one thing that I truly loved was the highlighter. And, the mask and eyeliner were okay, nothing to write home about. The rest was a definite no. I am glad that I received this bag though, just so I had the opportunity to try the highlighter. Plus, the bag is super cute.

Now, November Glambag, I am super excited about. Stay tuned for that review, and to see if I keep my excitement.
