Ipsy Glam Bag Unbagging and Review for October 2014

I’ve been a subscriber to Ipsy’s Glam Bag service for three months now, and I have to say that I haven’t been disappointed yet. Let’s take a look at this month’s video, shall we?

As you can see, this month’s bag was just as value-packed as the last two months. Let’s check out the breakdown:

Ayres “Patagonia” Body Butter: Normally you would purchase a 6.75 oz tub of this body butter at a cost of $28. That makes my 1 oz sample worth a little more than $4.
Epice’s Purifying Exfoliant: This pricy cleanser goes for the price of $32 for 3.3 oz. My sample is 1 oz, making it worth almost $10.
“Nicole by O.P.I” nail lacquer: I was able to find this full-sized product on sale on several sites, but the regular price is about $7.
“Big Bold Curl” mascara by New York Color: I was actually surprised that this full-sized product isn’t nearly as expensive as I thought it was. It goes for $5.
Star Looks lipgloss: A full-sized lip gloss is $12. Unfortunately the website doesn’t seem to show the size, but I estimate that the sample I received is about a third of the full-size, so we’ll say it’s worth about $4.

Total approximate value of bag: $33 (estimating the makeup bag to be worth about $3)
Total cost to me: $15

So, as with the first two bags I received, the value is more than twice the cost to me, which is pretty awesome if I do say so myself.  I haven’t had a chance to really try out anything yet (except for the mascara, which, by the way, is great), but all in all it was a pretty great bag. So far every bag I’ve gotten has had at least two full-sized products, which alone make the bag worth buying, and so far there haven’t been very many items that I genuinely disliked. So, as always, I highly recommend this service! And if you’re going to check it out, please click on my referral link to be one of my favorite people ever! 😀
