September Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Ipsy is one of my favorite subscription services.  It is such a fun package to get.  First, you have to love the beauty hot pink shipping bags.  I save mine ship other things in them.  Ipsy is only $10.00 a month.  Every month, you get 4-6 full size and sample makeup products in a little reusable glam bag.  You fill out a profile online and then you bag is curated based on your answers.  I have found some great products because of Ipsy.  Right now, my favorite finds are my Benifit lip stain, Noya Lip balm and my NYX blush.

The Bag
I love this month’s bag and think this is my favorite so far.  I love the size of the glam bags.  They are great for your purse, travel, or just for your bathroom.

Classic Beauty

This month’s theme was Classic Beauty.  This sums up my makeup style.  I like classic looks without anything fancy.

NYX Single Eyeshadow $4.50
I got a blush from NYX last month and really love it.  I wasn’t thrilled when I first saw this eye shadow.  I don’t look good in brown, but this is a bit more neutral and has a slight shimmer.
Elizabeth Mott: It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara (Sample) (Full Size $19.99)
This is an Ipsy MyGlam exclusive launch.  This has a special formula designed to great volume, curl and lengthen without smudging.  I like mascara but would have liked a different product, since I got mascara last month.
Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil (Full Size $18.00)
This is one of my favorite products.  It is a highlighter pencil.  You can use this on your brow bone, under your eyes (my favorite), on blemishes or red spots.  This works great and is a perfect shade for me.  I couldn’t tell from the website if this is a sample size or full size.  Either way, this will last a long time.
Starlooks Kohl Eye Pencil in Obsidian $12.00
This a perfect staple to add to my beauty routine.  It goes on easily and is full size!
skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels $7.50 (Full size 8 packets for $30.00)
These are cooling gels that promise firm and de-puff in 10 mins.  I haven’t used these yet, but if they work, I am buying more!  I have late nights from time to time (b/c of kids, not parties).  These would be great to make me look like I get 8 hours of sleep.
Michelle Phan Makeup Sample
Michelle Phan, the founder of MyGlam, which is now Ipsy, has released her own makeup line.  Subscribers received a card with sample makeup inside.
There are samples to create the “out to lunch” look.  The full Life Palette “Career Life” has 36 colors for eyes, lips and cheeks.  That looks really fun to play with!
Entire Bag
Final Thought : I really enjoyed this months Ipsy My Glam Bag.  My favorite products are the highlighter, eye pencil and they eye gels.  The total value for this box was $24.00! That is only calculating the Starlooks, Eye gels and NYX.  I wish I would have received a lip product instead of the mascara.  Ipsy always has such a great value, your really can’t go wrong with this subscription.  I am looking forward to the November Ipsy Bag!  To sign up for Ipsy, click HERE.
