Ipsy doesn't come with an information card (and I wish it did) but subscribers can find out about the products in their glam bag on the Ipsy website.

Cool bag!  Ipsy always sends out really cool glam bags.

Serapine Botanicals Guava Butter Lip & Cheek Stain .14 oz.

This is a cool product because it can be used as a blush, lipstick, or eyeshadow.  I love products that have multiple uses.  This is a very pretty shade and I'll be using this mostly as a cream blush.  This product is Vegan, GMO-free, Gluten-free, and is not tested on animals (big plus!).

Retail Value:  $24

Seraphine Botanicals Guava Butter Lip & Cheek Stain

Ulta3 Nail Colour in Sizzling Red

I really like the red color of this nail polish.  

Retail Value:  $1.73

Eva Nyc Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner 0.75 oz.

I love me some dry shampoo and conditioner so I was happy to see this in my glam bag.  This dry conditioner is made with Vitamin B5 which helps seal and soften the hair cuticle.  This conditioner also helps eliminate static and frizz.

Retail Value (5.1 oz.):  $14

Product available here

Too Faced Lip Injection Supreme 0.05 oz.

This lip plumper is made with avocado and jojoba oil to help plump up the lips.  I did not like this product.  It really burned my lips and I did not think it made my lips look fuller or plumper.  I didn't notice any change.  It just burned.  Ugh.  Many people like this product so maybe it will work better for you but I don't like it.

Retail Value (0.14 oz.):  $28

Product available here

Dr. G Daily Safe BB SPF 30 Cream in Fair (5 ml.)

This BB cream is made with flower extracts and essential oils and is good for skin that is prone to irritation, redness, and rosacea.  My skin isn't really prone to irritation or redness but I'll try out this product anyway.

Retail Value (45 ml.):  $32

My Thoughts:  I liked some of the products sent in September's Ipsy but this month was not my favorite.  My favorite products were the Seraphine Botanicals Guava Butter and the Eva Nyc Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner.  I like the variety of products that Ipsy sends each month and I think this subscription is a great value.  $10 a month is a really good price for the variety of products that I receive each month plus the really cool glam bags.
