How Much Does An Ipsy Subscription Cost Each Month
For Barbie's Beauty Bits Ipsy 2021 Halloween Beauty Bag Review, I will share with you all of the options Ipsy has. There are a few options with the Ipsy subscription, and one thing I like about this subscription box is you always get a cute themed makeup bag with your subscription each month.

Must-Have Fall Beauty Items At Macy's

Must Have Fall Beauty Items At Macy's By Barbies Beauty Bits

Must have "Fall Beauty Items" from Macy's? But of course! Like you would change up your wardrobe, you need to do the same with your beauty products. While I do not need a reason to try some new beauty products from Macy's, the change of season is always a great time to do this.

And Macy's is here to help us do just that with their Macy's 10 Days of Glam Fall Event, where you can save up to 50% off on select beauty products! Like Too Faced, Clinique, ItCosmetics, Dr. Brandt, Tarte, Smashbox, Anastasia, Philosophy, Murad, MAC and more!

Plus Free Shipping on 10 Days of Glam Daily Purchase Deals. Using code: GLAM10 (some restrictions apply).

Below is a list of some of my Macy's beauty buys that will be a part of my fall beauty routine.

Bye, Bye Skincare Issues With These Serums From ItCosmetics Found At Macy's
Rarely does anyone have just one skin concern. Usually, we’re trying to address a few while ensuring our skin stays wholly balanced at the same time and avoiding the ouch burn from mixing the wrong skincare products. The trick is to find the right serums (preferably one suitable for all skin types, even sensitive) that work best together to do precisely that, and ItCosmetics is doing just that with their Bye, Bye Serums. With the help of dermatologists’ expertise, each serum contains high percentages of active ingredients proven to drive visible results!

This serum skincare line comes with four different concentrated derma serums, so there is a serum for you depending on what you want to skincare concern you want to say, bye, bye to this fall season!

Fall Skincare For Puffy Eyes 
The last year and a half it’s been all about the eyes. Preventing and treating under-eye issues has been on the rise. That's right; our eyes are taking center stage, but are your eyes ready to be the center of attention?
Mask wearings and the Zoom meetings forced many to look at themselves with unfavorable lighting and awkward angles, noticing some features that make you look older than you are, like puffy eyes.
And Dr. Brandt No More Baggage Eye De-Puffing Gel is here to the rescue.

Within minutes you will notice a tightening effect as it smooths the under-eye contour to visually minimize the appearance of under-eye bags and dark circles for an immediately brighter, well-rested look. And the best part no needles!

BONUS: This product is a DEAL OF THE DAY, Tuesday, October 19th

Stop Looking Tired In Photos
I do not know about you, but another thing I've noticed is how fatigued my eyes have been looking in photos lately. And what better than some caffeine to perk me up! And this goes for caffeine in beauty products too. Yep, GLAMGLOW Bright Eyes Illuminating Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream is infused with caffeine to energize and revitalize the eye area.

This fast-absorbing cream works on all skin tones to energize and brighten under and around the eye for a well-rested look. It also has some other "perks" like...

  • Illuminating spheres brighten dark circles
  • Hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates all day
  • Peptides help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles around the entire eye area

BONUS: This product is a DEAL OF THE DAY, for Friday, October 15th. Shop Now!

Best Fall Eye Makeup From Macy's
Not that I've bagged those under-eye issues. I'm ready to rock my next Zoom call, which means a volumizing mascara and eyeshadow palette to fit the fall season.

Too Faced Teddy Bare It All Eye Shadow Palette
Cuddle up with these warm, luxurious fall eyeshadow colors from Too Faced. I am such a pink and rose gold person, and this palette offers many gorgeous colors.

Fourteen shades perfect for fall to create that high-impact Paw-sistively gorgeous eye look to that Bare-ly there for a more natural look. And a bonus, this Too Faced eyeshadow palette smells like honey graham crackers. Too bad there isn't a scratch and sniff on our computer screen. 


Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara
Ha, what the perfect name for something that can help while on Camera...A cult classic for over a decade, this best-selling vegan mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes, and conditions, acting like a push-up bra for your lashes.~Yeah!!!

Another reason why I love this Tarte mascara that can be found at Macy's as is it has a 2 in 1 wand that helps to curl and add volume! Plus, the key ingredients are an unexpected bonus.

  • Olive esters: conditions, treats & protects lashes
  • Rice bran wax: wax that helps lengthen the appearance of lashes
  • Provitamin B5: helps hydrate & improve the appearance of lashes
  • Vitamin C: antioxidant that helps fight free radicals

BONUS: This Tarte Mascara is a DEAL OF THE DAY, for Friday, October 22nd.

Must-Have Hair Product For Fall Found At Macy's
Many people do not know that dry shampoo provides some amazing volume for the hair. To give my hair that extra volume boost and to have my curls and blowout last longer, I turn to my all-time favorite dry shampoo Klorane. This product formulated with organically harvested oat milk offers an ultra-gentle yet powerful cleansing action to rid hair of excess dirt, oil, and odor, with no white residue. 

This 3- piece set is the bomb as it provides options and is perfect for travels over the holiday. And if you are a newbie to the brand, you can see which Dry Shampoo formula is best for you. 


  • Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk helps to soothe and protect with ultra-gentle Oat Milk.
  • Dry Shampoo With Nettle Extract is fantastic for controlling excess oil in just 25 seconds.
  • Detoxify the scalp and refresh hair with Aquatic Mint. This one removes impurities from the scalp while absorbing sweat and oil; menthol, camphor, and essential oils provide an instant, fresh, cooling sensation.

IMPORTANT: There has been some controversy over dry shampoos. This is because many are not using them correctly. The rule of thumb should be that you use dry shampoo on the day before you plan to shampoo your hair. This will prevent product build-up and hair loss. Personally, I prefer to use them on the day I shampoo my hair as it helps give my hair volume and helps prevent oil instead of using it after when your hair is already dirty.
