|Ipsy, October 2013|
In order from my least favorite to my most favorite this month:
Sexy Hair Spray Clay.
I guess this is a hairspray that texturizes and mattifies. I don't like the sound of that at all! I like smoothing things that add shine, and I don't ever use hair spray.
Sample size is 1.4 oz. Full size (4.4 oz) $18.95 at Ulta, making this sample worth $6.03.
Next, LA Fresh Oil-Free Face Cleanser Wipes.

I really only use these when I travel, and I still have some left over from the LAST time Ipsy sent these to me. Way to double up on samples! Oh, I'm sorry, La Fresh Make-Up Remover Wipes are *so* different from La Fresh Oil-Free Face Cleanser Wipes. Ugh.
La Fresh sells 30 wipes for $9.99, making these 10 wipes worth $3.33.
Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush.

This seems ok. I won't know until I really use it, but extra brushes are always ok by me. Nothing to really complain about here! I just wish they had said if this is natural or synthetic. They sell both, but didn't specify on the packaging- my guess is natural, but I could be wrong.
$2.49 on Coastal Scents' website.
Bella Terra Mineral Cosmetics Mineral Shimmer in Navy.

I'm glad I got the navy instead of the color that was shown in my profile! It is a decent mineral shadow, no complaints. It did rub off pretty easily (at least, the pretty sparkly things rubbed off of my hand easily), so I will use a primer with it.

This shadow sells for $14.99 for 2.5g. The sample is 2.0g, worth $11.99.
Last, but not least, is Zoya Mason.
This is a nice dark fuchsia, with a hint of glitter. It's a really pretty color and I know I will get a lot of wear out of it. I don't have anything quite like it in my collection!

$8, 15 mL. FULL SIZED. Not a sneaky 80% size (I'm looking at you, bella terra!).
I think the bag iteslf this month sucks. It's white (again, when will they learn?!) with a pink interior and the words "Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art." Lame. Patterns or solids, please! I don't need your silly words of "wisdom", but thanks.

Overall, I'm disappointed. The other options this month were Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly; Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster; Sexy Hair Blow Dry Gel; H2O Plus Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment, Nourish Organic Body Lotion; Ofra Sultry Lipgloss and Plumper; Ole Henriksen Truth Creme Advanced Hydration; be Delectable Hand Cream; Starlooks Lip Pencil, Wet n Wild Photo Op Eyeshadow. So, there were some other crappy options, but also some really good products!
I've gotten all of the lame stuff for the past 2 months and none of the things I actually want! I did try changing my profile, but I don't think they are paying any attention to that.
Total Value: $31.84.
