Ipsy September 2013


Look at what got here yesterday!

This is the September 2013 Ipsy bag – and for those of you who do not know what Ipsy is, it’s a $10/month subscription service where they send you a monthly makeup bag with 4-5 deluxe beauty samples.

The bag is pretty cute this month, but I was still hoping for one that was a bit more autumn-themed. Maybe next month…


My September bag includes:

Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firm Eye Gels

Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Big Apple

NYX Eyeshadow in Golden Poppy

It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara

Starlooks Kohl Eye Pencil in Obsidian

I have actually used a few things from the bag so far. I used the Skyn Iceland Eye Gels last night and I liked them. It wasn’t an amazing product, but it was very relaxing and a nice treat. I also used the Starlooks eyeliner in Obsidian, which is just black. It was okay. This liner wasn’t nearly as creamy as the Urban Decay 24/7 liners, but it was decent enough for my upper lash line.

I thought this bag was just okay. I was a bit disappointed that I received two foil packets, because it reminded me a bit too much of Birchbox. But otherwise, everything else is sized well.

Have you tried any of these products?

    The bag looks really cute. I used to be subscribed when glambag first started and there were too many free sample like products so I cancelled. They definitely have stepped up their game since then.
