I have October’s Ipsy glam bag unboxing/review for you today! The theme this month is Black Magic, which is fitting for the Halloween season. It doesn’t feel like Fall where I am, we had maybe a week of pretty falling leaves and cooler temperatures before the snow started to fall… and fall… and fall…
If you haven’t heard of Ipsy, it’s a monthly beauty subscription service that ships out 4-5 deluxe and full sized products each month.
Price? $10 US. Canada adds $4.95 for shipping.
Value? Glam bags typically average out to around $49US, but this can vary as glam bags are customized. In addition each month comes with a new makeup bag.
Customize? Fill out a profile quiz to get personalized products. If you give Ipsy feedback on your products each month you will have a greater chance of getting something you like next time.

I didn’t receive a theme card this month for some reason but that’s not all that important. The makeup bag this month is Halloween themed and I love it! Look at the little ghosts and bats!
Make up Forever Ultra HD Foundation Sample Size $8.32 CAD
I sampled this foundation from my Topbox sub last month and really liked it. This shade doesn’t quite match my skin, but it’s close so it’s hardly noticeable. I’m debating buying this full sized, but it’s $52 CAD so it will have to wait.
Tre’StiQue Matte Lip Crayon Deluxe Sample Sized $18.39 CAD
I’ve wanted to try Tre’Stique since I started my Ipsy Subscription in January and I finally get the chance! This is similar to the e.l.f matte lip crayons. I have a shade that almost matches this. I’m looking forward to seeing how they compare.
Pur~lisse Daily Lip Nourisher with Mango and Shea Butter Sample Sized $8.41 CAD
I haven’t disliked anything from Pur~lisse so far. I’ve only used it for a day and it makes my lips feel really hydrated. Perfect for the change in seasons!
Lottie London Perfectly Precise Eyeshadow Brush Full Sized $7.99 CAD
This pink brush is adorable! It can be used as an eyeshadow or a smudger brush. I’ve already received brushes like this from Ipsy, but one can never have too many right?
Essence Superfine Waterproof Eyeliner Pen Full Sized $3.49 CAD
There were so many beautiful eyeliners this month and I got the three dollar one.. The tip is meant to make a super fine line but it looks incredibly hard to work with because of how long the tip is. I drew a line on my hand and it didn’t budge so this may be useful if I can figure out how to work the long tip.
I tried to draw a little bat for Halloween with the essence pen and I failed miserably.
Overall: The total value of all my samples is $46.60 CAD, or $35.48US. This isn’t the best Ipsy bag I’ve received, but you can’t win ’em all. I was really happy with last month’s glam bag!
What did you receive in your glam bag this month??
