September Ipsy Glam Bag

make up monday new

This months theme is Face Fashion/Face the Future!

The bag is a nice golden color perfect for Fall!


Red lips

The first item was a total fail for me.  It is a rosehip & hibiscus moisturizer by Bayberry Naturals .  I thought it was gonna smell amazing and it smelled awful so it never even made it on my body to know how moisturizing it is. Sad smile Maybe I just got a bad one?? A full size retails for $17.95.


Red lips

A full size Garnier Fructis Full & Plush Voluptuous Blow Out. This was okay. It did give volume and smelled very nice but it left my hair feeling a weird texture.  I like my hair to feel super soft so not sure this would be a product I would use every day. Full size retails for $5.99.


Red lips

A Queen of the fill tinted brow gel by Elizabeth Mott. I think I would have loved this if I would have received the medium dark shade but I got light medium which is way too light for my dark eyebrows. A full size retails for $20.00.


Red lips

I also received this NYX palette which was made exclusively for Ipsy subscribers.  These trio palettes normally run for around $6 but right now they are on sale for $3 on NYX’s Site. I have a couple of their trio palettes and they have good pigmentation and staying power with a primer.


Red lips

Last but not least I received a mini matte lip crayon by tre’Stique in the shade Nantucket Nude. The full size comes with a balm on the other end which I think may have made this a better product. The liner was a bit too matte for me because I love some shine but I just layered a gloss over it and it worked fine. A full size retails for $28.00.  I doubt I would pay that for this product.


Happy Monday Red lips



I buy this $10 beauty subscription every month. It is not sent to me for free.

If you click the link I do get 250 points if you sign up which can be redeemed for products when you hit 500 – 1,000 points. If you do not want to give me points just head over to Rolling on the floor laughing


  1. I've never been a fan of nyx shadows. Too chalky! It's the only product they do wrong.

    1. This palette for some reason was not too chalky but yeah if I had my choice I would definitely choose Lorac or another high end shadow over them :)

  2. My 21 yoa daughter is an Ipsy subscriber and looks forward to her monthly package. I'm not so sure I'd use anything in September's subscription, except for maybe the Garnier Fructis Full & Plush Voluptuous Blow Out.

    1. It was definitely not my favorite bag but hopefully this month is way better :) Good thing is I have nieces and other families members that I pass stuff on too that either doesn't work for me or I know I will never use :)
