October Ipsy Bag - The Art of Beauty

I'm finally caught up on Ipsy posts!  For the month of October, the theme was "The Art of Beauty".  We got a white bag with the words, "Love of beauty is taste.  The creation of beauty is art."

Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush
Coastal Scents Brush:  I haven't used this brush yet but I have felt it and it feels very soft.  However, I do own another set of natural hair brushes by Coastal Scents and they're extremely scratchy and uncomfortable.  Hopefully, this one feels great on the face as it does on my fingers.

Sexy Hair Spray Clay
Sexy Hair Spray Clay:  This is my second Sexy Hair product I've received from spray clay.  I did not like the first one and I don't think I'll be liking this one.  "Spray clay" does not sound like something I want to put in my hair and I had to look at Ipsy reviews to see how to use this.  I'm assuming this is another hairspray-type product, please correct me if I'm wrong and let me know how it works for you.

Zoya nail polish in 'Giovanna'
Zoya Nail Polish:  I was excited to get this product!  I've heard so many good reviews about Zoya and Giovanna is a beautiful emerald color.  I can't wait to use it.

Starlooks Lip Pencil in 'Tickle Me Pink'
Starlooks Lip Pencil:  Yet another product given to me by Starlooks.  This time it's a lip pencil in a medium pink color.  It swatched very creamily and pigmented.

Bella Terra Mineral Cosmetics in 'Navy'
Bella Terra Mineral Cosmetics Mineral Shimmer:  The last product I received was this loose shadow by Bella Terra Mineral.  It's a beautiful shimmery navy blue color.  It was extremely pigmented when I swatched it and I was really impressed.

I liked four out of the five products in my bag this month which is pretty great.  I wasn't too fond of the bag I got, but I will probably just use it for storage around the house.  I feel like even if you don't like most of your products, the bag itself makes it worth the $10 you pay.  I'm a pretty happy subscriber and will keep up my subscription with Ipsy unless their products start getting really bad.  I've seen reviews of other subscription boxes and didn't like their products.  

Are you currently subscribed to a monthly box?  If not, do you think you'd try Ipsy?
