I’m going to be reviewing/showing you another beauty subscription service in this post. This is going to be about Glam Bag by Ipsy! Glam Bag is a $10/month beauty subscription service, similar to Birchbox. This company was started by Michelle Phan from YouTube, so it’s great to be supporting her! I also LOVE that these come in adorable re-usable makeup bags, just an added bonus!
You can check out Glam Bag on Ipsy’s website here. These also make a great gift if you’re running out of time and ideas for the holidays! You can gift someone a subscription anywhere from 3 months ($30) to 24 months ($220 – 2 free!). This is a great gift idea for a beauty lover in your life who loves to try out new things! As you’ll see in the post below, these bags a WAY worth the $10/month =)
October’s theme was “Be A Bombshell”.
“Pump up your lashes! Build colossal body with the biggest, boldest mascara to come from theBalm Cosmetics – What’s Your Type? in “the body builder”. This long-lasting, clump-free formula boasts a highly pigmented, deep black finish that won’t smudge or smear. Formulated with Vitamin E, Panthenol, and Bamboo, “the body builder” conditions and strengthens lashes to add length, thickness, and definition. Paraben- and sulfate-free.”
The sample is 3.5mL (0.11 fl oz), full size is 12mL (0.4 fl oz) for $19.
“Long-lasting and highly pigmented, Be a Bombshell eye liner can be used to create everything from a sexy cat eye look to a daytime flirty look. The marker-like tip is easy to use and goes on smoothly with no smudges, feathering, or running. The formula is quick-drying and lasts all day until you take it off! Available in 3 shades: onyx, espresso and provocateur.”
This sample is full size! 3mL/0.1 oz worth $14.
There were 8 possible sets for this, all with different colour combinations. The set I got has (TL, BL, TR, BR) a lovely soft lilac-silver (Elven Silver), a shimmery peach (Light Pink), a dusty rose (Rosy Pink), and a sparkly black (Gunmetal).
The net weight of the sample is 2g.
“Introducing a revolutionary lip color that combines gloss, stain and lacquer all in one! Mirenesse Lip Bomb is power packed with non-smearing pigment that lasts and lasts. It is designed for professional application with its high pigment, customizable shades, and easy to use Infinity Lip™ Applicator. Infused with Lip Perfecting Spheres, that carry vitamins and a refreshing mint taste, Lip Bomb leaves your lips super-moist and with a velvety finish. Available in 15 shades.”
This could have come in 3 shades, and I’m sad to say I got my least favourite. Looking at the website the other two were a beautiful deep berry red (#2), or a lighter pink/red (#4). I am really afraid of how this is going to look on my lips, I think it will just totally wash them out… for a product this pigmented I don’t think colours this light are a good idea…
This is another full size sample, 3.1g, worth $35.10!!!
“Couture Colour Pequi Oil® Treatment makes hair 6X stronger, 3X shinier and visibly smoother after one application. Use it to nourish, stop frizz, seal split ends and boost colour.

The sample is 15mL (0.5 fl oz) and worth $12. It is also available in 60mL (2 fl oz) for $32 or 120mL (4 fl oz) for $50.
