October Ipsy bag!

Ipsy (formerly called MyGlam) is a monthly subscription service where you receive four to five beauty products (fitting a specific theme) in a cute little bag. They are usually deluxe sample sizes of quality brands (I've received Urban Decay from them before), with one or two full-size products, for just $10 a month. It's an awesome deal because usually, whatever the one full-size item is usually costs more than $10 retail. For the specific month, Ipsy gives you discounts with the brands that they feature.

This month's theme is "bombshell":

Classic-looking black and white bag with red trim

- Coastal Scents e/s quad
- theBalm What's Your Type? mascara in "The Bodybuilder"
- Pequi oil treatment
- Mirenesse Lip Bomb in Mirror Me
- Be a Bombshell felt-tip eyeliner in Onyx

Swatches!
The Lip Bomb totally reminds me of a slightly thicker version of OCC Lip Tar (it's even got a similar minty scent/taste!), while the Coastal Scents quad is deliciously buttery and pigmented. Why have I never tried their shadows before??? I'm SO getting an 88-something palette.

Interested in subscribing? Go to Ipsy.com - most likely you will have to sign up for the waitlist, since they can only maintain a max number of subscribers. But once you get the invitation, JOIN! It's totally worth it. You get really good stuff to try out, and a cute bag, for only $10 (no tax/shipping).
