Ipsy GlamBag: October 2013 Review

I am super duper disappointed in this month’s bag. I signed up for ipsy to experiment on more makeup products, not beauty. I hate getting beauty items in my bag because half the time i cannot use them, hence I specifically selected more makeup than beauty in my quiz. But after all I got this.I feel like this is the worst bag ever considering I have never had items in my past bags in which I was not excited about any of the stuff. This is a first.I am kinda disappointed because I am sure there's someone out there who would've wanted all the items in my bag and I would've wanted theirs (the buxom lip gloss, eye shadow…etc.) but we were mismatched.
Oh well,I really hope ipsy doesn’t keep on being like this,it would be sad to cancel my subscription after I am an avid lover of glam bags. I felt really bad because I got two friends to get on ipsy and one to switch from birchbox because she was tired of beauty items and wanted more makeup.

The Bag
The bag is cute, i really like the font on it. very simple though but reminds me so much of a recycled version of one of their old bags  (which was in the exact same color,just no font).

H2O Plus Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment [Sample]
The H2O Plus Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment is a clinically proven oil-free moisture gel that delivers deep hydration. Marine botanicals rapidly replenish depleted skin and fills surface lines with a surge of moisture. Vitamins A and E helps fight against environmental damage and phospholipid microspheres deliver time-released hydration to keep skin looking revitalized all day.
I found this face/gel cream surprisingly nice.It is gentle on sensitive skin,and perfect for moisturizing combination skin, it is non greasy,and has no oil yet cooling and refreshing.
Will Buy Fullsize?: probably not.too pricey [$36.00]. I have a few alternatives that I have tried that are even cheaper and better.
1).Baviphat Peach all in one waterful cream- $16.79
2). TonyMoly Red appletox honey cream- $14.98

Nourish Organic Deeply Nourishing Coconut & Argan Body Lotion [Sample]
Nourish Organic's new Deeply Nourishing Coconut & Argan Oil collection is a new collection of ultra-moisturizing body lotions and body washes that hydrate, soften and smooth the skin. These products contain highly concentrated, precious ingredients that replenish your skin with essential nutrients and restore your skin's natural glow. The Deeply Nourishing Coconut & Argan Body Lotion is available for ipsy subscribers.
- Moroccan Argan Oil, packed with restorative omega fatty acids, intensely hydrates and replenishes skin
- Vitamin-rich coconut oil smoothes and softens skin
- Antioxidant-rich hibiscus extract protects skin from environmental damage
- Advanced, non-greasy formula clinically proven to deeply nourish and improve skin elasticity
This is the  worst lotion I have ever tried. even worse than those cheap lotions that come with perfumes. It smells like rotten argan oil (to me) and the lotion applies serum like but it doesn’t moisturize, it disappears fast. it definitely wont work for dry skin. This is not moisturizing at all.
Will Buy Fullsize: NO

Ofra Sultry Lipgloss and Plumper
DSC07513Draft Pictures1
The Ofra Sultry Lipgloss and Plumper is a hydrating and plumping lipgloss. Contains titanium dioxide to help protect lips from the sun. May be used alone or over lipstick to add shine.
Moisture: 3/5
Shine: 2/5(this actually means its really shiny,sticky and glossy which I don’t like)
Rating: 2.67/5
WIll buy again?: no
I have a love/hate relationship with this lipgloss. At first when I got itr I hated the color,but now I am ok with the sheer glossy effect. I still hate the fact that it has gold glitter in it though. It claims to be plumping but it does nothing, it just  tingles a bit. The color is great and the pigment is nice but it does not last long at all. it wipes off pretty fast.That can be really annoying for something so expensive.

Sexy Hair Spray Clay Texturizing Spray Clay[Fullsize]
The Sexy Hair Spray Clay Texturizing Spray Clay creates and allover textured look with a matte finish. This spray allows for a fine and even product distrbution and is great for all hair types.
I did not try this hair spray mostly because my hair is actually “texturized” and i find it useless. I fear it would suck the moisture out of my already dry hair which would definitely be a hassle to deal with.

Zoya Nail Polish in Mason [Fullsize]

Part of the Fall 2013 CASHMERES & SATINS Collection, these shades are created to work together with this season's most stylish runway designs and luxurious fabric blends. These ultra long-wearing, glossy nail lacquers by Zoya are BIG5FREE - free of toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and dibutyl phthalate (DBP).
Zoya Nail Polish in Mason can be best described as an exciting red violet or "Fandango Pink" metallic.
Color Family - Burgundy, Red, Purple
Color Finish - Metallic
Color Intensity - ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )
Color Tone – Cool
Coats: 4/5
need just 2-3 coats
Drying: 5/5
dries really fast
Shine: 2/5
without a topcoat, it can be pretty dull
Intensity: 3/5
color is intense but only under a nice topcoat. Plus I prefer much cooler purples,the gold and red shimmer in it throws me off
Total Rating: 3.5/5
Will buy again?: No

Bag Use-0/5
Honestly speaking, I did not find anything that I really enjoyed in this bag for this month. Hopefully next month would be better.

Thanks for reading!!
