Ipsy October 2014 - Beauty Candy

The theme for Ipsy's bag this month is Beauty Candy.  If I didn't know any better, I would have assumed it was something aquatic related seeing as most of the things I got were blue and moisturizing/clean.  I received five things in my bag this month and I'm pretty happy with what I got, there was only one item I didn't like but we can talk more about that later.

How cute is this bag?  This is my favorite item and it sort of resembles a chocolate bar?

Cleansing Cloths
Glacial Cleansing Cloths:  This is a sample from Skyn Iceland and I do like receiving skin products.  I haven't used this yet but I love makeup wipes as I use a LOT with makeup and swatches.  This is supposed to be an actual cleansing cloth that foams, so I'm very excited to try it out.

Hydrating Treatment
Hydrating Treatment:  this is a face moisturizer with a gel formula.  It absorbs quickly and has a soapy scent.  This is a sample from H2O+ and I've heard many things about this company so I was happy to receive this.  I do prefer this type of formula over cream moisturizers because they feel rather heavy on my skin.  I might look for something similar once I run out of this because it's a bit expensive.

Body Butter
Body Butter:  strong herbal rose scent.  This is a body butter sample from Ayres.  The consistency seems thin and absorbs well, but the scent is way too strong and not up my alley.

Mineralized Baked Shadow
Mineralized Baked Shadow:  I got this in the color "Ocean Breeze" and it's a pigmented medium silver blue.  This seems to be a full sized shadow from Jesse's Girl.  The pigmentation and texture are alright, but I wish I got another color since I don't use blues that often.

Lip Gloss
Lip Gloss:  creamy nude pink, vanilla scented.  This was a lip gloss sample from Starlooks in the shade "Guilty Pleasure" and I like the texture a lot.  I love receiving tinted lip products so I hope Ipsy sends me more!

Daylight:  Ocean Breeze, Guilty Pleasure
Flash:  Ocean Breeze, Guilty Pleasure
Overall, I was pretty satisfied with this month's bag.  Like I said before, I absolutely love the bag that was sent and have a lot of fun playing with it!  It has a very flexible, bendy nature that is unique to all the other Ipsy bags I've gotten.  I'm also very happy with the facial moisturizer and lip gloss.  This month was a hit for me and I can't wait for next month's.
