Yes, it's time for the Ipsy Glam Bag post.
I'm sure you've noticed this is much later than usual, that's because DHL mis-shipped my bag, along with many other bags.
So, my bag traveled back and forth across the U.S.
It's probably seen more states than I have.
It took me two weeks to get my bag.
Let's just say, I'm not a fan of DHL.

I did contact Ipsy during all of this, and they offered to replace my bag if I didn't end up receiving it.
Ipsy's customer service has always been helpful to me, and this was IN NO WAY Ipsy's fault.

Anyway, I got the bag, nothing was damaged and all is right with the world.

Let's discuss what was in my bag.

Let's go left to right.

Lime Crime nail polish in Crema de Limon. 
This was a bonus item for referring two people last month. 
It's a full size and it's an $8 value.
This polish is a pretty pastel yellow. If you'd like to see a review and swatches, let me know.

Pixi Lash Booster Mascara
This is a sample, and I believe the color is black, even though it isn't marked.
The full size retails for $17, which I think is way overpriced, but that's just my opinion.
This would probably retail for around $5.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

This is another sample, and while I absolutely love that it's in similar packaging to the full size, I was kind of expecting a full size. I'm not going to whine about it or throw a tantrum, as some probably will or already have, but I felt as if it was hinted at that the product would be full size. I may be the only one who feels this way.
Anyway, I got the shade 69, which is a bright red.
The full size retails for $22, so this sample is probably worth around $5.

Michael Todd Pumpkin Facial Mask
This is the one thing that I was excited about and not disappointed over.
I have not used this yet but I am so, so excited and if I love it as much as I'm hoping I do, I will buy it.
The fact that it smells like a pumpkin is amazing.
This is a sample size, and a full size retails for $34.
This sample is a little less than 1/3 of the full size, so it's value is around $11.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
I had honestly crossed my fingers and hoped I wouldn't get this product or the next product in my bag.
No such luck.
Why wouldn't I want the primer?
Well, because Smashbox gives them away all of the time, and I already have 4-5 laying around.
I'm not a huge fan.
This is not a full size, it is 0.25 oz.
Full size retails for $36, and while I'm not sure exactly how much is in the full size, I'll assume the sample is probably worth around $9.

Mica Beauty Mineral Eye Shadow

This is a full size product, but another I was hoping not to get.
It's a loose eyeshadow, labeled as a shimmer powder.
I got the shade Bronze.
It's pretty, yes. It swatches okay, fairly sheer, really.
However, I am not a huge fan of loose pigments.
This retails for $14.95

That's everything I got this month.
I was really hoping for the brow pencil and bb cream, rather than eyeshadow and primer.
But, you can't always get what you want. :)

I'm okay with this month's bag. I was more excited about it before I got it.
Also, I was told no doubles, and then received the eyeshadow, and I'm received that in a past bag.

That being said, the survey seems to help, and I like that they're trying to make it more personalized now.

In case you don't know, Ipsy is a monthly subscription service open to U.S. and Canada.
In the U.S., it's $10 per month with no shipping charge.
You receive 4-5 deluxe sample size/full size products.

I'd love it if you'd use my link to sign up!

Thanks for reading and let me know what you got!
Is there anything you'd like to swap? Let me know!


Also, my cat says "Hello".
His name is Andy, and I think he is VERY photogenic.
Not at all fat.
