Makeup Monday- Ipsy September Glam Bag


My Ipsy Bag came in this past Thursday. Here is the unboxing video.

The theme for this months bag was Classic Beauty.

I received a little sample swatch of Michelle Phan’s new makeup line Em. I did a little First Impression of that a few blog posts back.

A NYX Eyeshadow in Hot Crystal which was full size and retails for $4.50. I must say I like the color as a highlight but I am not a fan of the chunk glitter in this one.  I usually love NYX shadows but this was a bit of a fail for me.

I also received a Starlooks Kohl eye liner in the color obsidian which is a matte black.  This retails for $12.00. At first it seemed like it might be a little to dry and would tug at the eyes but once dulled a bit it is actually very nice and stays put.

Next up was the the It’s So Big mascara by Elizabeth Mott in black. It retails for $19.99 for a full size, we received a travel size.This is a very wet formula which I usually steer clear of but with that being said it is actually a really good mascara. You just have to be careful when your applying it.

There were also three Freeman Paper Masks. These retail for $1.99 each. I have not tried these yet so the verdict is still out.

And last but not least I received a Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in the color Big Apple.  This retails for $19.00.  This was a very pretty red.  A little bold for me but I just used a little frosted lip gloss and it tamed it down and was lovely.

So all in all a good bag except for one dud.  The bag was worth about $51.47 + about $5 for the bag itself so $56.47. Not bad for a $10 subscription.

Happy First Week Of Fall.

What are you looking forward to most this season?? Red lips
