Ipsy – September 2013

Ipsy – September 2013

September is here and with it comes another month receiving fun happy mail in the few subscription boxes I am a part of!

This is my second month with Ipsy, (you can read about my August bag here), and I completely love it! I also love that I received my bag much sooner than August’s. September’s bag was shipped September 6th & it arrived September 11th, a full day before I even received my tracking info email and a full 10 days earlier in the month than last.

For those that don’t know with Ipsy you get 4-5 surprise beauty products every month all in a small make up bag delivered right to your door for $10. Below is a picture of the items I got to try out this month:

September Ipsy Glam Bag

For $10 my Ispy Glam Bag included:

  • Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara: 4ml: valued at $8.00
  • NYX Single Eye Shadow in Utopia Gold: full size: retails for $4.50
  • Starlooks Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil: full size: retails for $12.00
  • Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil: full size??: retails for $18.00*
  • POP Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Rose Romance: full size: valued at $4.17

The total value for my Ipsy Bag for September was $46.67* not including the makeup bag. (*I’m not sure if the Chella Highlighter is full size or not since I can’t find size online. The caps are different on what we got in our bags verses what Chella shows on their site, so most likely it’s a trial size. No matter the size the value is still AMAZING in this Ipsy Bag).

Like last month here are the reviews I posted on Ipsy after trying out the products:

  • Elizabeth Mott Mascara: Just mascara. I have plenty & now I’ve gotten 1 in both my Ipsy bags so far. It did go on nice & defines my lashes with minimal clumping. So yes I liked it, but would love to try other products than mascara since that’s so much easier to come by.
  • NXY Shadow: I received the shade Utopia Gold & thought it was perfect for my blue eyes & perfect for me since I like a little more natural look. Love the pigmentation & the feel of it!
  • Starlooks Liner: I don’t really like or not like this product, but that has more to me being not very good with eyeliner. I will say that I’m glad this smudges nicely since my lines are never straight so a least I can get a little more of a smoky look even if I can’t get a crisp line. I do have eye liners though, so I probably would have liked something else a little better in my bag though.
  • Chella Highlighter: Watching the videos of this when it was in an earlier bag made me want to buy it & luckily I waited. Thrilled to see this in my second bag from Ipsy! I used it right away yesterday & it brightened my eyes so much! Love the feel of it going on too. Simple & easy to use even for a makeup novice like me.
  • POP Beauty Crayon: It feels nice going on. I got the Rose Romance shade & it’s pretty similar to my natural lip color, so for me the color didn’t do much more than add a little shine to my lips. It did feel nice & moisturizing though & I love the presentation. The smell I didn’t much care for though.

Like last month two products really stood out as something I love & was so happy to try: The Chella Highlighter & the NXY Shadow. I would probably love the eyeliner too, but I’m just not good at applying liner. HA!

Love the value that I’m receiving so far as long as I like a couple items in the bag, & I’m already looking forward to October’s Ipsy Glam Bag!
