Ipsy Glam Bag October 2021 Unboxing & Review
October Glam bags are here and to no one’s surprise the theme this month is wicked Halloween looks. In the bags we received products that can help prep the skin for any creative experiments you can think of, and a little something-something to help remove your masterpiece afterward. Here’s what I received in my October Glam Bag!
HOW IT WORKS:
Each month as an Ipsy subscriber you will receive a new Glam Bag with a mix of 5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products customized according to your beauty profile. Members can watch videos and play along with the stylists, all for only $12/month ($50+ value). Click here to check it out.
1 // Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream ($68 – $13.60 value) – Love this moisturizer! I use tretinoin which makes some areas of my face really dry while others are more oily, and this cream somehow manages to balance both: the dry spots are quenched while the oily areas feel more normal. 5/5
2 // Chella Blushing Rose Eyeshadow Palette ($45 – $20 value) – Chella is known for their brow products but their eyeshadow palettes are good quality, too. I like the mix of shades in this palette, they are different enough where you can use them to create a couple daytime and nighttime looks, and the size is perfect for keeping in a small makeup bag. The shimmers are exceptional, and the mattes are a little stiff but overall decent. 4/5
3 // Ouai Detox Shampoo ($30 – $3 value) – I haven’t tried that many products from Ouai, but they were all solid. Since I have long hair, I tend to use a lot of shampoo, so this sample only lasted one wash. It’s a bit hard to review from a single experience, but for what it’s worth, my hair did feel cleaner and the roots were nice and airy. 4.5/5
4 // M2U NYC Eye Primer ($8) – I’m surprised this eye primer isn’t more expensive, because I really like how it looks on the skin. My favorite Viseart mattes look so vibrant with it! 5/5
5 // Theorie Charcoal Bamboo Detoxifying Body Scrub ($13 – $2.92 value) – Like the shampoo, this sample was good for only one application. The grains are small and not terribly abrasive, so it can work even for someone with sensitive skin. The formula foams nicely, making it’s easy to wash off with plain water, unlike some oilier scrubs out there. 5/5
Okay, who could possibly say no to Tatcha? Even though I already have a full-sized jar of this moisturizer, I am thrilled to have a smaller one on hand if I plan to travel somewhere for the weekend. While for me Tatcha was the highlight this month, other samples turned out to be surprisingly good, too.
The value of my Ipsy August 2021 Glam bag: $47.52
