OCTOBER BAG


WHAT I GOT:

1.  BWC PREMIUM BOTANICAL LOTION (2 fl.oz)


"A fragrance free hand and body lotion that moisturizes, softens and protects your skin."

The company states that this lotion is fragrance-free but i beg to differ.  This has a slight scent that I really didn't like.  Although it stinks I would agree that this truly moisturizes and softens one's skin.

2.  ARGAN FACE SERUM by NOURISH ORGANIC


"This has Moroccan Argan Oil that hydrates and replenishes your skin, an Apricot Kernal Oil that restores and softens skin, and Rose Hip Oil that smoothes skin's texture."

I love face serums because of all the benefits it could give to our skin.  The face serum that I got has Apricot and Rose Hip and is made for normal to dry skin.  This has a very pleasant smell that I really like but the serum is just to oily for me since I have a combo skin type of dry-oily.  This would definitely be good to those who have really dry skin.

3.  PRETTY EYES AUTOMATIC EYELINER IN PLUM BY SKONE COSMETICS


"Automatically sharpens, has an intense color and long lasting."

One of the characteristics that I look for in an eye pencil is that it should automatically sharpen.  I hate to constantly sharpen eye pencils so getting this eye pencil that sharpens automatically is a plus for me.  I got mine in Plum color which I like.

4.  DOSE NAIL POLISH in STORMY


Pic from Ipsy website ( i accidentally deleted my pic ).  EXCLUSIVELY formulated and designed shade for ipsy – An edgy, hauntingly beautiful grey-violet, with an ever so slightly veil of mineral iridescence. Dashing yet refined with a soft patina satin finish. Highly-pigmented –superior coverage."

The color was nothing to rave about but it was OK.  This nail polish was truly pigmented.  

5.  MEET MATT(E) HUGHES LONG-LASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK in COMMITTED by theBALM COSMETICS


"theBalm introduces a truly loyal long-lasting liquid lipstick—Meet Matt(e) Hughes. This long-wearing formula has a comfortable matte finish with no commitment issues. This matte vanilla mint liquid lipstick is stuck on you without feeling clingy!  Long-wearing matte finish, Comfortable, build able coverage, Vanilla mint flavor."
Didn't like the shade at all it was a pinky nude.  It was not long-lasting as it has stated.  But I like how minty it was.
VERDICT:  THE IPSY OCTOBER BAG WAS JUST OK FOR ME.  DIDN'T REALLY LIKE IT THAT MUCH.  I THINK I HAVE TO TAKE THE BEAUTY TEST AGAIN.  FOR THIS MONTH THERE IS NOT ONE PRODUCT THAT I REALLY LOVE OR LIKED.

RATING:

DISCLAIMER:  I bought the box with my own money and gave an honest review without gaining any monetary gains or whatsoever from the company.
