Ipsy October

I continue to be both impressed and disappointed with my Ipsy bags. I love all of the products, except the nail polish. I hearts me some nailpolish, but the colors are all a little too out there for me personally. Maybe it's because I work in a pseudo-professional job (schools, but I am considered a specialist), where I can dressed on the very relaxed end of business casual (I do sit in pee sometimes)... but still, purple iridescent polish? I could (maybe) get away with it on my toes. I also really like the little bags. They are good quality and I use them to give small things to my friends on the daily because I have sooo many now. 

  • Zoya-- Part of the Fall 2013 CASHMERES & SATINS Collection, these shades are created to work together with this season's most stylish runway designs and luxurious fabric blends. These ultra long-wearing, glossy nail lacquers by Zoya are BIG5FREE - free of toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). I received the purple color and tested it out. It is pretty and goes on well. It has an iridescent sheen which is pretty, but looks very young. I don't have any plans to wear it soon, but it may make a fun toe nail polish color next summer. 
  • Be Delectable Hand Cream---Indulge your hands with a well-deserved treat. This ultra nourishing hand cream is enriched with shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera to smooth, nourish and rejuvenate hands and cuticles. Rich, and never greasy, this beautiful blend is kissed with a delectable scent. Available in four delectable scents, coconut & cream, strawberry & cream, vanilla & cream and lemon & cream. This stuff is delish! I love the way it smells. I got the strawberry, which smells sweet but not cloying. The cream is thick, goes on well and doesn't feel greasy. I immediately put this in my purse to carry with me all day, err day. Love it!
  • H20+ Face Oasis--The H2O Plus Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment is a clinically proven oil-free moisture gel that delivers deep hydration. Marine botanicals rapidly replenish depleted skin and fills surface lines with a surge of moisture. Vitamins A and E helps fight against environmental damage and phospholipid microspheres deliver time-released hydration to keep skin looking revitalized all day.  For me, this was slightly greasy. I generally use Clinique lotions and creams on my face. This is similar to their night cream, but slightly more "slick". I'll def save to take with me on trips. 
  •  Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Gel-- The Sexy Hair Blow Gel is an alcohol-free gel that thickens hair while adding volume. It also helps retain moisture so your hair never feels dry. Delivers a light to medium hold. This is a personal fave of mine. I have fine, flat hair and this works wonders. I can put it on and it doesn't make my hair feel crispy like some gels do. I would say that it does what it claims--- gives light to medium hold and provides thickness to thin hair. 
  • Buxom Lip Polish---Tingle, plump & shine your pout to super-sexy proportions with sheer, shimmering Full-On™ Lip Polish in Dolly. This bestselling dusty mauve gloss creates the look of fuller, more voluptuous lips while Vitamins A & E help keep them soft, smooth and protected.  I loved the color, it is a subtle nude. I also have to admit, this made my lips tingle-- not in a you've got mouth herp kinda way, more of a hmmm... what's going on here way. I don't know if that's good or bad, you decide. Either way, I threw this in my purse.
