As many of you know, I have been getting 2 Ipsy bags for the past few months as an experiment. I wanted to see if it would be worth the money or possibly even save people money that would usually be spent on makeup. I tailored my two Ipsy quizzes so that they were different from each other but both included items I enjoy and it seemed to work well. I only received one repeat item, which I put in my youtube giveaway bag so it was a win-win for me. Out of my two Ipsy bags for the month of October, here are the noteworthy favorites. I will start with my new favorite essential. Eyeliner.

fileasset-1essence Cosmetics Superfine Eyeliner Pen waterproof

In my last review I raved about a different superfine eyeliner pen a little too soon. I realized the importance of waterproof eyeliner when I gently itched my eye and instantly had black smears everywhere. You can have the finest tip and the best pigment but if it isn’t waterproof then who cares? Bonus that the tip on this one is as sharp as a dagger and makes for some amazing cat eyes. I use this everyday.

fileasset-5Trestique Matte Lip Crayon in Florence Fig

This colour is amazing for your everyday fall makeup routine. This finishes off any daytime look and makes you look like an autumn beauty. I have been going to this lip crayon on the daily to pull together my look and give me a boost of chique.

fileasset-2Lovely Sarah Jessica Parker Fragrance Rollerball

I love that ipsy is sending out fragrance rollerballs. Although this scent wasn’t exactly me I could still appreciate the elegance and freshness of the scent. This isn’t your dinky little sephora sized “sample” that gives you two sprays and an empty bottle either. This size perfume will get a ton of use out of it. Also, with perfume you can just give it away as a really nice gift if the scent doesn’t scream you.

fileassetnoyah Natural Lipstick in Current

I love me some natural products. Cruelty free is also a huge bonus here. Not only a great colour for fall but just a beautiful shade in general. The formula is incredibly soft too, no dried out lips here! A bit on the small side, but this isn’t your go-to everyday lipstick either so it works.

fileasset-3Lottie London Perfectly Precise Eyeshadow Brush


Thank you Ipsy for including brushes in your glam bags! You can never have enough good quality makeup brushes. This one as you can see is bright pink which makes me so happy. I love the sort-of ombre brush design too. It’s super soft, feels great on the skin and great for precision.

fileasset-4Pure Brazillian Leave in Miracle


I was so excited about this seeing as I’ve just had a keratin treatment done and conditioning my hair is really important right now. It didn’t help however that because of my lack of post-shower conditioning habits, I have forgotten to apply this product about 4 times now. That’s 4 whole blowdrys WITHOUT conditioning first. My poor hair, if this bottle had an alarm on it that reminded me to apply it, I would probably have more to say. From the few times I’ve remembered to use it, it’s been a nice addition.
