OMG!!! ipsy October Bag: I love you!!!!

I took two finals today, yes on a Saturday, don't ask me how they went because one of them was "Statistics"... I'm just clearing that up so you understand when I tell you my brain is fried today and I am under the influence of as much caffeine as you can imagine! 

Yes, October's ipsy/MyGlam bag! the reason you are reading this post!!! OMG I loooooooooooooove this bag!!!! I have been pleased before but this one is just unbelievable!!! I had seen the sneak peeks and pictures from other people posting their bags and I am still smiling like a little kid because everything is perfect and amazing! 

The theme this month from the ipsy website: "This month, it's all about the bombshell. We pay tribute to the women of every era who have inspired us with their curves and confidence. And with October's Glam Bag, you'll be able to say Hello! to the bombshell in you. Now's your bombshell moment!" 

Here is the bag:

Yes! I got all these products for $10 delivered to me :) and you can too! They do not have a referral program currently but you can go on their site and sign up if you want to give yourself a little treat every month :)

The breakdown:
The bag...Other months "the bag" itself has been ok, but this one is not only pretty, but also well made. Here is the inside of the bag :)
Lip Bomb 4 - Glossy Laquer Stain by mirenesse (3.1g/0.11oz retails for $31.20 on sale, regular $39)
I tried getting a close up of the color, to me it's like a mauve color with pink undertones. I put it on and I like it so far, this is a hybrid product; it has the power of a lip stain and while it applies creamy it is not sticky like lip gloss! It doesn't taste or smell funny which is important to me :) No flavor I would say and the smell is kinda minty :)
What's Your Type "The Body Builder" - Black Mascara by theBalm (10ml size retails for $19, I received a mini 3.5oz). I am a mascara junkie! but who isn't? hahaha I'm sure this will be a great product! and i love mini mascaras and mini make up items in general because I can fit more products in those tiny bags you can take when you travel!
Pequi Oil Treatment by Couture Colour (0.5 fl oz/15 ml retails for $12). I am all about packaging and this is genius!!! Most oils get messy because they have weird caps, check this one out:
I have never heard of this brand before, this is from their website: "Instantly absorbing COUTURE COLOUR PEQUI OIL® TREATMENT is luxurious, alcohol-free, virtually weightless on hair. Dull, damaged hair is 600% stronger with a 250% improvement in shine after one application.* Works its magic on every hair type, every day, in so many ways: as a pre-shampoo treatment, pre-blow-drying for smooth, sleek hair, post-blow-drying to calm frizziness, flyaways, or any time for extra softness, shine." *Based on a clinical study 

Next up, Eye Shadow Sample - Set 7 (4 colors) by Coastal Scents (each color retails for $1.99, they are dime sized metal pods just like the ones in the 88 original palette). Here are the names of the colors I got:
 They came in a plastic blister/package:
 You can appreciate the colors better here:
 Last but not least, be a bombshell - Eyeliner in Onyx by be a bombshell cosmetics (retails for $14)
I have been *dying* to a try thick pen style eyeliner like this one, I've been eyeing the NYX Super FAT Eye Marker for a long long time but it retails for $10 so I never bought it... this looks just like it to me so I am super excited!!! and I got the whole bag for $10!!!!
I honestly feel like these $10 well spent as far as beauty bags go! Also all the brands in the bag are offering killer deals if you buy more of their products, from 15% off to $20 off!!! 
Now I gotta run, technically I should be getting ready hahaha but I couldn't wait to show you!!! I am using everything I got in this bag tonight! I'm going to dinner with my bf and if I hurry up we might make it to Sephora "just to look" :)

Have  a great rest of the weekend and let me know what you think of this bag :)

Thank you for stopping by,
Fiorella :)


  1. I got the same lip color & I'm in LOVE with it! I bet it looks great on you too! Man, I'm just like you, this month blew me away!!

  2. Oh my gosh.. this makes me want to sign up for ipsy!

  3. What a great box! I'm trying to figure out if I can still get October's box... I have an address to use in the USA that I will go to in the next 2 weeks or so to pick something else up so if I can get this to arrive there by then, I want to purchase (and then cancel sadly).

    1. I don't know what the deadline is to get this month's bag, it might be too late :( but if you have a way to get it I would definitely go for it! :)

  4. i also received lip bomb #4 but i got a diff. eye shadow set.. i'm so in love with myglam!
