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.

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!

September Lip Monthly Unbagging

september lip monthly

Hey lovelies,

Another month, another subscription bag! I know that I usually do my Ipsy unbagging first, but I am currently waiting for that to get to me. I came home to an empty pink envelope (I assume someone took my actual glam bag) but Ipsy was kind enough to send me another! So, in the meantime, I will share what I got in my Lip Monthly bag this month!

If you’re unfamiliar with Lip Monthly, they’re a beauty subscription that now costs $12.99 per month, but on average you get $50+ worth of stuff, and most of the products are full sized.

This month I recieved 3 full sized items and 1 sample sized item.

Jing Ai Lip Jewel in “Pink Star” $22 I’ve actually gotten one of these before in a past bag, but I am not unhappy to get another! These are actually really smooth and pretty pigmented for a lip crayon. I like when Lip Monthly sends these weird not as known brands because this is something I would have never thought to try myself, and it’s pretty awesome!

Noyah Gloss in “Summertime Peach” $6 Okay, this item disappointed me. It’s a really tiny sample which always gets lost with my black hole of teensy samples, and peach just isn’t a shade I want right now. It’s not Summer anymore. I really hope next month we get some Fall things. There was a coupon code attached for 20% off though which was nice.

Jelly Pong Pong Highlighting Pen $17.95 The last thing from Jelly Pong Pong I couldn’t really use, but this I might be able to. I like to use highlight pens like the Nyx wonder pencil to carve out my brows and highlight them, so that’s what I will use this one for! It swatched a really pretty peachy color and felt smooth, so I’m excited to try it!

Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon “Shameless” $16 I’ve gotten a lot of be a Bombshell products from beauty subscriptions in the past, and I actually like their brand! I’ve been using the lip balm I got by them in an Ipsy bag for a few months now, so getting a new product to try is awesome. This is a really pretty berry shade that does remind me of Fall. It swatched really smooth on my arm so we’ll see if it does that well on my lips!

Swatches from Left to Right:

Total bag value: $61.95

This was a really high value bag this month! Let me know what your thoughts are on this bag, and let me know if there’s anything you all would want to see a separate review on!

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