Happy 30 days of Halloween, everyone! I thought I’d take a break from my horror movie binging and candy corn guzzling to give you the what’s what regarding my October Glam Bag.
If you couldn’t already tell, Halloween is my favorite holiday, and this month’s Glam Bag feeds my spooky little soul. It’s so cute it hurts. It is hands-down my favorite Ipsy bag ever because:
- It’s pink, my favorite color.
- It’s covered in lipsticks, Ouija boards, ghosties, crystal balls…sigh. It’s perfect.
So, you’re probably wondering about the samples. Ahem. In October I received:
Ciate Fierce Flicks liquid eyeliner—I was so dubious of this. Liquid eyeliner from a brand I’d barely heard of? But I’m SO glad I received it; this eyeliner is amazing, making winged liner a cinch.
It applies easily, the felt tip is soft, and it stays put all damn day. No bleeding, no flaking, and no fading, all of which are usually problems for me because my eyes water so much. I will definitely be buying more of this when it runs out!
Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind eye shadow duo—This duo applies smoothly and is quite pigmented, but the shades were pretty “meh” for my taste (and I guarantee I have similar shades in my Naked Smokey palette already).
If you travel a lot, this is a nice little set that takes up hardly any space and is perfect for throwing in your carry-on bag or weekend bag. If you don’t travel a lot, then this might just clutter your makeup drawer.
The Balm’s Hot Mama blush—I should have known by The Balm’s reputation how great this blush was going to be, and I’m not one bit disappointed! It applies on my skin as a gorgeous peachy pick with a subtle shimmer. And such a little sample goes a long way! 100% not disappointed!
Pure Brazilian leave-in miracle hair treatment—While I don’t think this tops the leave-in treatment I got back in September, I does untangle my nest of hair, and it smells quite nice. Plus, the pump makes it easy to apply right to your hair without getting it all over your hands.
Trestique matte lip crayon in Florence Fig—Ipsy FINALLY sent me a lip color that is not paler than my natural lips or is an ungodly pink shade. Though this doesn’t fall into the bright red spectrum (my signature color), it is nonetheless a beautiful matte fig color perfect for fall—and long lasting, too!
