Ipsy Glam Bag (September 2013)

I'm in love with all the items I got in this month's Ipsy Glam Bag! They're all things that I will use all the time (except for the mascara). Plus, how cute is the bag, right? I love the bold blue and the floral lace look. This month's theme is Classic Beauty. 

For the month of September, I received: 
♥ Cailyn Cosmetics' Tinted Lip Balm in Big Apple (full size $19)
 Freeman Beauty's Paper Mask in Rose, Star Fruit, and Blue Agave (full size $1.99 each)
 Elizabeth Mott's It's So Big Volumizing Mascara (full size $19, sample $8)
♥ NYX's Single Eye Shadow in Pure Gold (full size $4.50)
 Starlooks' Kohl Eye Pencil in Obsidian (full size $12)

This month's bag was worth almost $50! 
MINI REVIEWS:

Cailyn Cosmetics' Tinted Lip Balm in Big Apple

I looked at this and thought it was another eyeliner pot from Cailyn since I got one in my first glam bag (which I never blogged about) and thought it was a terrible color for an eyeliner. However, I soon realized it was a tinted lip balm and got really excited. It comes with a small brush, but I prefer using my finger to get a more even coverage. I like the true red color and that the end result looks like a lip stain. 

Freeman Beauty's Paper Mask in Rose, Star Fruit, and Blue Agave 

I haven't actually used these yet, but I have two other facial products from Freeman Beauty (the chocolate and strawberry clay mask and the cucumber peel-off mask) that make my skin feel amazing, so I have no doubt that these paper masks will do what they say they do and make my skin glow. 

Elizabeth Mott's It's So Big Volumizing Mascara 

Like I mentioned in my last glam bag post, I don't wear much mascara. It is a nice mascara though, but it does clump a little and feels heavy on my eyelashes, at least to me. I'll probably gift it to a friend since she's a seasoned mascara wearer. 

NYX's Single Eye Shadow in Pure Gold 

This is my favorite thing in the bag! The name of the eye shadow is pure gold, but it's more like a bronze color, which is stunning and perfectly shimmery and makes for a great base coat. It's also soft, pigmented, and blends easily. I will definitely be wearing this all the time. 

Starlooks' Kohl Eye Pencil in Obsidian 

I love deep black eyeliners and this one is perfect: it's very black, it glides on smoothly, and it can be blended to create a softer line. While I like the Wet n' Wild eyeliner I usually use, this is definitely a step up. I think I found my new favorite eyeliner. 

Have you tried any of these products before?

  5. Hahaha oh my gosh, if that lip balm was eyeliner that'd be such a terrible color. It'd be like recreating a pink eye look o.O But anyways,this looks like a lot of great loot- they definitely delivered!

  8. Hahaha, that's exactly what I thought! I don't want to look like I have pink eye! Not a good look!

  9. Yes, they definitely seem to do better than other bags out there. Every month I see people on Youtube compare the Ipsy bag to Birchbox, and usually Ipsy wins every month in terms of good products and sample size.
