What's In My IPSY October Glam Bag 2017 | Spellbound


Theme: "Spellbound"


My October glam bag from Ipsy is here,

and I am loving it!

As you can see, I received 6 items this time, instead of the usual 5, but I will get more into that later.

First off, let me say, ever since the

Ipsy X Gudetama collab,

I feel like the bag designs have started to go downhill a little.

I'm not really feeling them if I'm being honest.

As long as the products are good, I don't really mind the lack of design too much though.

Alright, let's break down what's inside:

-Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Lid Primer in "Light"

-Context Skin Vitamin C All Day Eye Cream

-Luna by Luna Cosmetics Lip Crayon in "Elara"

-It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder

-Hey Honey Trick AND Treat: Active Propolis Cream Concealer

-Peach and Lily Soothe & Restore Sheet Mask



First up is this

Photo Finish Lid Primer from Smashbox.

I used to use a lid primer from Urban Decay for ages, but ever since I ran out, I sort of just stopped using one.

Although I haven't had a chance to try this one out yet, I do like the applicator that it comes with.

Even though it's a travel size, I feel like it will last me a while.

($21 for full size)


Next we have this Vitamin C Eye Cream

from the brand Context.

I've never heard of this brand before,

but I don't mind it.

My eye bags need all the moisture they can get.

The formula isn't too thick, and I find it to be quite hydrating.

(retail price $35)


Next we have this pretty

lip crayon from Luna By Luna cosmetics.

I was excited to try more stuff from this brand because I have been obsessed with one of their highlighters, but I was disappointed in this particular product.


The shade is very pretty, like a bubblegum pink almost, but the formula just didn't work for me.

I generally don't like lip crayons because I don't find them to be long lasting, and they smudge and transfer on everything it seems like.

When I tried it on, the color went on a bit patchy and clung to all of the dry patches on my lips.

It was not a pretty sight.

If only a could get this shade in a matte or liquid lipstick, I'd be happier.

(retail price $18)



Next is this

translucent finishing powder

from Smashbox.

I haven't had a chance to properly try it out yet, but it's got some raving reviews,

so I'm excited for it.

It'll be my first time trying out a pressed translucent powder vs. a loose powder.

I really like the fact that it also claims to be anti-aging.

($29 for full size)


Next is this concealer from Hey Honey.

I was surprised to see they have makeup products, because I thought they only had skincare.

I was expecting a concealer that was too dark and too yellow for me, but I was pleasantly surprised.


The color matched me perfectly.

Although I would have loved to get something a tad bit lighter just for the brightening effect, I'll take what I can get.

It's suited for dry skin, so I know I'll be using this all winter long.

($36 for full size)


Ok, so last but not least, we have this sheet mask from Peach and Lily.

You might be wondering how I received an extra product, so I'll tell you.

If you're not familiar with Ipsy,

they have a rewards program.

For every product you review from your bag, you can collect points, which you can then

redeem for free products.

I had a bunch of points that I had been saving for something, but was forced to use some of them because they were expiring, so I ended up choosing this sheet mask.

(retail price $6)


And that concludes what's in this month's Ipsy bag.

What did you get in yours?

What was your favorite product?

Overall, I would rate the bag a 4/5 this month.

If you're new to IPSY, it's a $10/month subscription service where you receive

4-5 beauty samples each month.
