September Ipsy Unbagging

september ipsy

Hey lovelies,

I know this Ipsy unbagging is suuuuuper late, but I just now got my replacement bag! If you follow me on Twitter, I kinda had a mini meltdown after I came home to a pink envelope with no glam bag inside. You know when you’ve had a rough couple of days and you’re looking forward to something and your day gets ruined? That was what happened to me. I know it’s just makeup, it was just the point. Why leave the pink envelope?

Anyway, Ipsy was kind enough to send me a replacement bag! If you’re unfamiliar with Ipsy, they’re a beauty subscription that costs $10 per month, and you get 4-5 deluxe sample sized products or full sized products. I’ll leave my referral at the end, but don’t use it if you don’t want to!

Ipsy and Nyx 3 shadow palette: this palette is actually really cute! I had one similar to it, but it’s a few years old and I probably need to get rid of it. I love neutrals and dark colors, and this little palette is perfect for creating a really quick smokey eye. I don’t particularly like that it doesn’t have a matte, personally, but you can only do so much with 3 eyeshadow shades.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: I was honestly sooo happy to see this in my glam room! This repair cream is a holy grail of mine, especially in the Fall and Winter. I struggle with eczema around my nose and mouth mostly, and this helps with that tremendously. It’s never broken me out and it’s thick, but it doesn’t feel thick on my skin. It is a bit pricey, so I will gladly take this small backup.

X Formula Nail Polish in “Ignite” Not gonna lie, I was most excited about this item in my bag in September. I have never tried this line of nail polishes, and the color they sent was perfect for me. Usually I get shades I never use in beauty subscriptions, but I see myself using this up quickly and I will probably buy the full size. I mean, look at it, it’s perfect.

Bare Minerals Lipstick in “Get Ready” I was actually supposed to get the Trestique matte lip crayon in my original bag, but I will gladly accept this as well! This shade is a really pretty darker nude pink shade, a “my lips but better” shade for my skin tone. I haven’t tried many things from Bare Minerals in general, so I am pretty excited to try out their lipstick!

ClariSea Black Coal Detoxifying Exfoliant: At first I was skeptical because I thought to myself, “I can’t do much with this little product,” but my tune changed once I had this in my hands. You put a quarter size amount in your face wash and exfoliate your face with your everyday skin wash! Neat! I’ve used this a few times, and I will say that if you have sensitive skin to use a light hand, because this scrub can be a bit abrasive. It’s also very salty, so make sure your mouth is closed. Don’t ask.


These are swatches of the eyeshadow trio and the bare minerals lipstick!

Well, that’s everything I got in my bag this month! I’m really happy with this month, I think it’s one of my favorites! I’m also very satisfied with Ipsy’s customer service, and I am grateful that they sent me a replacement bag. I unsubscribed to Ipsy for a few months, but months like this remind me why I’ve been looking forward to my pink envelopes for over two years now. If you’re subscribed to Ipsy, what did you get this month? Tell me about it in the comments!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

One thought on “September Ipsy Unbagging

  1. Aw man, I would have been so upset by an empty envelop too – good of them to send you a replacement.
    That NYX trio is super cute – very useful colours too.
    I’ve heard great things about that First Aid Beauty cream – I might have a sample of thie laying around somewhere… would be great for the winter months. And that nail polish is NICE.
    Wow this bag is really good this month.
