Every bag is shipped in a shiny pink envelope every month.
How the contents came inside the bag.
The theme of October's bag is "The Art of Beauty".
They always include a postcard showing the brands featured in that month's bag as well as the discount you can get shopping for those brands during that particular month.
Every month has a different makeup bag. This particular bag Ipsy's Facebook page asked for everyone to decorate the backside of the bag and post it on their wall. I never took the time to do mine. :p
Now what you have been waiting for.. The Goodies!! Every bag includes most usually 5-6 products a month. They are usually deluxe samples but they also include from time to time Full Size products.

Thoughts on Bag: I loved everything but the blow dry gel. The lotion smells so yummy that you want to eat your hand. Makes me think of strawberries and cream oatmeal. I also love the zoya color I got even though i was hoping for the emerald shade Giovanna. I've been using the h20 and my face seems more moisturized then it had been. I just damped my face first with some water and the dot it on my face. A little goes along way. The lip gloss tingles and has a butterscotch flavor. The blow dry gel just made my hair oily and tangled more then anything. I have fine hair, so i can't recommend it for this hairtype.
