It truly feels like Christmas in October, and not because of the Nightmare Before Christmas is playing on TV. It's because I got a lot of packages today! I'm so excited I have to share! Click down below to see what I got in my Ipsy bag, and the other goodies I got today!
I ended up receiving 3 packages in the mail! My Ipsy bag and headbands I ordered from "With Love From Rigby" an etsy shop. I also used up the last bit of my birchbox points for an order. Bye Bye Birchbox smell you later!
On to my Ipsy bag!!
This month's theme is Beauty Candy. We received our items in a candy bar shaped blue rubbery bag. Not my favorite bag but I'll find some use for it.
I received a mini Smashbox Pore minimizing primer. I'm super excited to try this one to be honest. I'm on the hunt for a good primer since I actually get to wear makeup to work now a days!
Indie Lee's Brightening Cleanser I haven't open this yet but I'll get around to trying it. Not exactly thrilled but willing to try.
Mica Beauty Cosmetic's Green eye shadow. It's a loose mineral eye shadow. It's a pretty dark shade, not something I usally wear. I will probably swatch it then see if one of my friends will want it.
Starlooks Lipgloss. I hate it. I'm not a lip gloss person, so it's beyond annoying to receive a lip gloss when I don't check it off on my survey. I'm sure I'll be able to find it a home.
Finally I received a heft sample of Rhinna's Rouge Perfume. This is more like a travel size perfume coming in at .5 fl oz. I'm impressed that I received a sample perfume this large but not to impressed on the smell. It's a cross between men's cologne and old lady musky perfume. Not too pleasant.
VERDICT :The ipsy bag: B- for the effort. I'm still impressed with the perfume sample size even if I'm not a fan of the smell. This bag is just eh all around for me. I do have to say I'm pretty proud that I didn't peak this month too!
If you want to try Ipsy for yourself click through here and help me out! It's only $10 a month to get a surprise bag of goodies. You can always find spoilers to find out ahead of time what you get. They do give more full sized and bigger sample sizes than birchbox.
I made an order with "With Love From Rigby" which is an etsy shop that sells Gatsby inspired beaded headbands. Who the owner is absolutely wonderful and pleasant. She also was able to get me my order really quick when I shot her a message about wanting it for a certain time. Which is really nice when you request it an item earlier when it's within reason.
I'm beyond in love with them right now and a full review is coming!
