IPSY Glam Bag PLUS October 2020 Unboxing + November Spoilers & Deals!

Wednesday, October 14, 2020

I received a complimentary Glam Bag Plus from @IPSY. #GiftedbyIPSY All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links. 

Hey, guys, I've got another new unboxing for you! This October 2020 is (also) my very first #IPSY Glam Bag PLUS! This one is a lot different from the base Glam Bag, so I'll tell you a little about Glam Bag Plus, all of the products that could be in your October Glam Bag Plus, what I got in mine, plus I've got SPOILERS for the November Glam Bag Plus and the most current deals, too! Let's get...unbagging!

If you saw my base Glam Bag unbagging for October, you'll know that something very cool happened recently. IPSY contacted me and asked if I would like to be in their Open Studios program. That means I get sent a Glam Bag and a Glam Bag Plus every month, so I'll be able to unbox those for you guys here on the blog!

IPSY has been highly requested as a new unboxing on the blog so I'm very happy to be able to do these for you guys. So, here we go!

If you haven't heard of IPSY's Glam Bag Plus yet, they send out 5 full-sized products every month inside a cute drawstring bag for just $25. You get to choose 3 of your items from a personalized set and IPSY chooses 2 for you. Your bag will have a $120+ value and ships free.

I really love that you can choose more of your items than with other beauty box subscriptions and the brands are on the higher end of the cost spectrum, so it's a really great deal (as you'll see with my bag below!) It's a great treat every month!

If I can, I like to be able to share everything that could come in your month's box. Like most beauty boxes, you will complete quizzes and compile a profile for yourself when you join. That will determine some of the items that come in your bag and not all bags will look like mine. 

This is everything that could come in a Glam Bag Plus this month.

So many goodies! Now, let's see what I got in my bag!

IPSY Glam Bag Plus October 2020

Just like with the base Glam Bag, this month's theme is You're Magic. I adored that bag and I adore this one, too! It's sueded cotton with the same witchy/makeup design in gold. It's perfect for the spooky season!

Out of the bag:

"A+ High-Dose Retinoid Serum combines 5% retinoid ester blend, 1% liposomal-encapsulated retinol blend, and 0.5% blue-green algae with natural, retinoid-alternative activity, this serum fights the signs of aging and improves the look of congested and UV damaged skin. Encapsulated CoQ10 helps to improve the appearance of aging or damaged skin, while rare, Hawaiian white honey, bisabolol, cactus extract, and ginger balance and soothe the skin for the appearance of a calmer, even-toned complexion."

I absolutely love this serum from Sunday Riley, so I'm very happy to get it in my bag. At $85 per ounce, it more than pays for the cost of the subscription by itself!

"Lock in makeup for long-lasting wear with Ciaté London's Extraordinary Translucent setting Powder. Finely milled for lightweight application and ultra-blendability, smooth this powder over concealer, and finished makeup looks for a crease-free soft-focus finish - plus there's no flashback. "

This is actually my current setting powder and it works well. It doesn't get cakey and helps set my face makeup beautifully.

"The OXYGEN-GLOW [EYES] eye contour cream combines a skin-booster, providing a plumping effect and smoothing hyaluronic acid, and a special L-enzyme ingredient for enhanced eyes day after day. Its hydra-illuminating texture with Optical HD technology instantly creates flawless-looking skin. BONUS – an enhanced dark circle-concealing effect."

I've never heard of this brand but it says they are the 1st French aesthetic medicine laboratory. This eye cream seems to promise a lot so I'm intrigued. Since my under eyes are where I need help the most, I'm happy to be able to give this a try!

"Each Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette is packed with a selection of nine highly pigmented mattes and striking shimmers, all with a smooth and blendable texture. Mauve has three shimmer and six matte shades in sweet rose and plum tones."

I'm a big fan of Huda Beauty and the Obsessions palettes are all absolutely gorgeous. I have to say the Mauve was always my favorite so I can't wait to play!

"This specially curated brush assortment has all your makeup application needs covered—whether you’re a beginner or a total pro. Each brush has super-soft synthetic bristles that are vegan, cruelty-free, and hypoallergenic. Function meets fashion. These brushes are designed with textured matte handles that make them easy to maneuver in your hand, and also happen to look super luxe too."

I absolutely love these brushes! The handles have a matte, raised pyramid design that makes it easy to hold onto them and they look very cool. The brush heads are so soft I would have never known they were synthetic! They are densely packed and really feel like luxury brushes. 

Overall, I am very impressed with my first Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. I received 2 products I already know are good and 3 products that I can't wait to try. That's what a beauty subscription should be all about; A good mix of tried-and-true with a sprinkle of latest-and-greatest. This was a fantastic bag!


So far we know these products will be included in the IPSY Glam Bag Plus collection for November 2020:
