september 2017 ipsy glam bag

Summer is over which apparently means that Glam Bag designs are getting better. I greatly prefer this month's simple, studded black bag to last month's bag-- which was basic in the bad way, if ya ask me. My bag's delivery was delayed a bit this month, keep reading to find out if it was worth the wait.

1. Elizabeth Mott Pop! Goes the Shadow in Gunmetal, $13-  If you're looking for glitter, you're in luck. This is very, very glittery. However, it's really lacking in pigment. The pigment is very, very sheer. It would be good to layering glitter on top of a matte shade, but I don't think this product will get much use from me.

2. SKINFOOD Black Sugar Mask Wash Off, $10-  By its brown color, I assumed this scrub would be a coffee scrub. It smells lemony, but kinda like a cleaning chemical. It's very hard and digging it out of the little container was a pain in the butt. It did leave my skin feeling very soft and hydrated, which is always a good thing. I love that it doesn't have evil little plastic microbeads in it, but it I'm not crazy about smell.

3. P.R.M.I.T. Beauty GELIulsion polish in September (Virgo), $11-  I'm not typically one for wearing blue on my nails but wore this for about a week anyway. I love that it's cruelty free and it dries quickly, but it didn't dry nearly as glossy as I thought it would. I also had problems with it chipping. I was fixing my nails every night for a week, and I don't have to do that with other polishes. I don't have time to re-do my nails every night so I would not purchase this.

ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Glossy Lip in ipsy VIP, $6- I usually don't wear glosses, in fact I've been pretty anti-gloss for the past decade, but I recently tried ColourPop's Aquarius gloss and loved it so I was excited to give this a try. I've been wearing a little bit over bubblegum pink liquid lipstick to add a little shine, and most importantly, moisture. It feels weird to be wearing gloss again after so long but I'm really diggin' it.

5. Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Medium Angled Shading Eye Brush 207, $12-  This brush isn't as stiff as I thought it would be, it's pretty fluffy, and many of the bristles were a bit askew when I took it out of my bag. It's a perfectly fine brush but personally I'm not a fan of fluffy angled brushes, I like my angled brushes to to stiff. Besides that, this brush is really soft, as all Luxie brushes are!

Overall, this bag was disappointing. Ipsy did a great job picking out products for me, I just didn't like most of them for whatever weird reason. No matter, I've seen a few products that Ipsy is sending out next month and I'm excited to see what I get!

  2. I was excited about the nail polish being that it's non-toxic/cruelty free...until you said it chips too much haha. I have polishes like that where I have to touch them up every night and it's so annoying! Thanks for being so honest :)
