Ipsy is a San Francisco based beauty subscription that sends a beautiful Glam Bag filled with with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products.

I didn't receive a tracking e-mail until October 13, but my Ipsy bag actually shipped October 6. It arrived at my mailbox on October 14th. The theme for October is "Beauty Candy".
This month, we're whipping up the most delicious beauty confections for you in your October "Beauty Candy" Glam Bag. You'll find both beauty tricks and beauty treats all month long, with colorful and eye-catching eye-candy that you can see and sample! 

Épicé International Purifying Exfoliant (1oz, $9.70)
A unique exfoliant which removes excess dirt and dead skin cells all while activating collagen production and hydrating your skin. This moisture rich formula utilizes mild, non-irritating and anti-bacterial cleansers with micro-fine polyspheres which enhances skin texture and clarity for a clean, fresh appearance.

Starlooks Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure (0.3oz, $4)
Starlooks Lip Glosses are created with a truly moisturizing, luxury, non-sticky formula. This neutral-rose, yet glamorous shade provides the perfect glisten for any lip look and complements any skin tone!

ModelCo VOLUMEYES Extreme Black Mascara (7g Full Size, $20)
Get gorgeous, full, luxurious lashes with the all new VOLUMEYES Extreme Black Mascara. The intensely black, volumizing mascara separates, coats and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection. One coat and lashes are defined. Two coats and lashes are even more luscious, curled and dramatic. 

Figs & Rouge Hand Cream in Rose Berry (20ml, $6.56)
Figs & Rouge Shea Butter Enriched Limited Edition Hand Creams are deliciously fragrant & indulgent. These delectable creams soften, nourish & thoroughly pamper hands throughout the day, quickly absorbing to provide super-soft skin.

Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquer in Feeling Very Cherry (Full size, $6.99)
Feeling Very Cherry has got us feeling fine! Nicole by OPI puts salon quality at your fingertips…from the colorful world of OPI. Long lasting, Salong quality, Fast drying.

My October Ipsy Glam Bag included five products, valued at $47.25! I like the mix of skincare, body care, nail care, and makeup. I love the nail polish colour and can't wait to give myself a manicure. It's a gorgeous dark cherry colour that will be perfect for fall and winter. Scrubs and hand creams are always welcome additions to my stockpile, as is mascara. The lip gloss is lovely, but I don't need more gloss at this time so it's been added to my sell/swap board. I'm happy with the contents and value of this month's bag.

What did you get in your October Ipsy bag?

    1. I've seen a few people with this exact one. Compared to some other combos I've seen, I'm quite happy with it.

  4. I want to know whether you pay any duty or taxes once the bag arrives here in Canada. Is it just the monthly / yearly payment plus shipping or are there any other charges as well?

    1. The bag ships from within Canada as Ipsy has set up a Canadian fulfilment centre in Ontario. For subscriptions coming from the US, ANY shipment with a value under $20 is automatically duty/tax exempt. When I write my posts, all the costs associated with a subscription are clearly stated in the review. For this one, it's only $10 for the service plus $4.95 shipping (US).
