Ipsy Glam Bag Plus October Reveal

Ipsy Glam Bag Plus October 2019

This month’s Ipsy Glam Bag Plus was pretty fantastic! There were some great finds and the theme….AWESOME!!!! I love Betty Boop so their very inspired line featuring the ultimate glamour girl was spot on! Included in this box:

  • Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator (I’m going to love trying this product)
  • JOLII Cosmetics Spektra Stick in Stella (My beauty review partner was very excited to snatch this up)
  • Eyeko Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner in Carbon Black (excited to try this brand but why do subscription boxes keep giving me black eyeliners)
  • Lovecraft Beauty Bronzer Palette (so pretty)
  • Betty Boop x Ipsy That’s So Betty Eyeshadow Palette (This is gorgeous and I’m excited to give it a try this weekend)
  • Betty Boop x Ipsy Lipgloss in All Jazzed Up (Add On)

GlossyBox October Reveal

GlossyBox October 2019

This is my very first subscription box from GlossyBox. This month I received a few products I’ve never heard of but was excited to try and a few I have heard of and already like. GlossyBox does not feature full size products, more like deluxe travel size. So you can get a good “try” out of each product. This month included:

  • John Masters Organics Geranium & Grapefruit Body Wash and Body Milk. They smell really good…light and citrusy.
  • BellaPierre Pro Concealer Palette – This concealer palette is actually full size and it’s quite wonderful. There are three different color correcting concealers that go on smooth and work quite well. They did not cake and smoothed out some uneven areas on my face from scarring. This was a new brand and I’m looking forward to trying more products from BellaPierre.
  • Minus 417 Firming Radiant Mud Mask – I’ve never heard of this brand before either, but this mask is delicious! It smells amazing and made my skin super soft and moisturized. I will be investing in a full size bottle of this mask.
  • Skin & Co Roma Truffle Therapy Polishing Micro-Exfoliating Truffle Face Gommage – It’s a MOUTHFUL of a product name but it’s luxurious in it’s exfoliating power. I can’t believe how wonderful my face felt afterwards! I didn’t want to finish my nighttime routine because this product made my skin feel like I just came home from a spa treatment! Definitely investing in a full size of this product!
  • Illamasqua Mini Hydra Veil – I’ve heard of this brand and so far, it hasn’t worked out for me but this product is a holy grail of primers. Not only does it moisturize my skin, it primed my face so well my make-up went on like melted butter and looked so luminous and evenly toned afterwards. Again, another product I’m going to invest in a full size of.

Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised by this month’s finds. I’ve only signed up for a 3 month run of GlossyBox so I have to see how the next 2 months pan out before I commit any further. But so far, I’m liking this subscription!!! If you can, I suggest you give it a try. Maybe you will find some unknown gems like I did!

Allure Beauty Box October Reveal

Allure Beauty Box October 2019

I am in love with this month’s Allure Beauty Box. Sure, they are not full size products but I look at is as an opportunity to try new things without the excessive cost AND to stock up my travel bag!!! This month Allure featured some things I already loved and some things I was dying to try that were on my wish list! It was a total WIN!!!

  • Sunday Riley Ice Ceramide Moisturizing Cream (wish list item)
  • M-61 PowerGlow Peel (wish list item)
  • Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (LOVE IT!!! Now I have a small tub for travel)!
  • ModelCo Metallic Eyeshadow Trio in St. Tropez AND Eyelites in Granite (an eyeshadow and a liquid cream shadow)
  • Kneipp Mineral Bath Salt in Dream Away (Awesome! Smells fantastic and makes your skin silky smooth and is so relaxing).
  • Lumify Eye drops (the best eye drops that exist).

If you don’t subscribe to Allure Beauty Box, you are truly missing out on some great finds each month! It’s one of my favorite subscriptions because of variety and volume and the price is just right!

October Boxy Charm Reveal

Boxy Charm October 2019

I was not impressed by my Boxy Charm box this month. Here is what was included:

  • Dose of Colors Eyeshadow Palette in Blushing Berries
  • Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm
  • Iconic London Lip Plumping Gloss
  • Skin&Co Truffle Therapy Radiant Dew Mist
  • Luna by Luna Eyeliner in Baby Blue

The only thing in this box that I was impressed with was the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm.

I LOVED this skin balm. Matter-of-fact, when my back-up product reviewer came to pick up the rest of the items in this box so she could review them, she was amazed at how good this balm made my skin look! This is a product I would rate 5 stars and would buy again! It smells delicious and made my skin glow and feel extra soft! This is the 2nd product I have tried by this brand and both times I was extremely impressed.
