IPSY (my glam) October 2012

I was happy to be greeted by the same hot pink mailer I’ve come to love this month. The name (my glam) may have changed, but the kits are still excellent as always.

Here’s this month’s IPSY haul:

  • A cool b&w chevron print make up bag w/ red zipper. so mod!
  • the Balm  - what’s your type black mascara
  • be a bombshell onyx eye liner — cool liquid liner pen
  • mirenesse lip balm glossy lacquer stain #4 - a nice neutral mauve-pink
  • pequi oil treatment - restores softness and shine to hair
  • coastal scents eye shadow mini quad
  1. vibrant red
  2. frosty taupe
  3. vanilla sky
  4. raisin berry

** I’m super excited about the coastal scents eye shadow sampler. I’ve been wanting to try their eye shadows out, but I didn’t know anyone that has used it before- so this is a great little find in my IPSY bag. And that’s what it’s all about!! Getting the chance to preview and try new brands and products to see if you like them. I’ll probably do another review on the eyeshadow once I use it, so be on the look out.

Until then, if you haven’t subscribed to IPSY, do it now! It’s only 10$ a month and so far over the past 6+ months, I’ve been really happy with all the goodies I’ve received. See for yourself! There isn’t a referral code for this company, but you can get more info at

who likes free stuff??

I know I like free stuff, and I also like trying new things. 

Jen-erous begins with JEN (that’s me) and so I’ve been thinking… “What should I do with some of the extra stuff I have from all my many box kit subscription services?”  And then my husband said, “You should do a give away!” To which I said, “Was I thinking out loud?”

Our little moment has transpired into the very first (let’s see if anyone would be interested in) give away. I’m giving away a box to one lucky person. The BOXACROSS BOX give away will contain 5+ items from some of the various subscription services that I get every month. Who knows what will be inside? 

  • Maybe a Julep Nail Polish
  • Maybe skincare products from BirchBox
  • Maybe beauty products from My Glam
  • Maybe natural products from Eco Emi
  • Maybe eco-friendly products from Conscious Box
  • Maybe vegan skin care from Green Grab Bag
  • Maybe fragrance from GoodeBox

Once the winner has been chosen and the box has been sent, I’ll post a photo of what was inside!  If you’re interested and want to win, make sure you’re following my blog and comment on this post. If more people are interested, there might even be a second box!! 

So tell your friends about my little blog, tell them to follow and enter to win… 

To enter - subscribe to my “newsletter” - one luck person will be chosen at random for my first super duper special give away…  (click this link to subscribe to my newsletter and be eligible for the giveaway)

Did I mention that it’s a FREE giveaway? I’ll even pay shipping (postage) to anywhere in the USA!

I’m still working out the date for when the winner will be chosen, but go ahead and sign up so you don’t miss out. One entry per person, once the winner is chosen I will contact them to get the mailing address and announce the winner!!

Who’s excited about this? I know I am!
