Ipsy Glam Bag: September

ipsy-september-2016

Hi guys! It’s time to “unbox” my September Ipsy Glam Bag! It’s always exciting to see what they have sent me each month and I always enjoy sharing it on the blog. Usually about once I month I also post Hits and Misses from my previous Ipsy bags, I’m due for one soon so keep an eye out for that! The bag for this month is cute as usual, I always love seeing what the bag design will be each month.

tre’Stique | Mini Highlight Stick in Maldives Luminescent

At first when I saw this item in my September Ipsy Glam Bag, I was a bit annoyed. I’ve said it many times that I don’t like cream or liquid highlighters. However, it’s a pretty white gold shade which I like and the Ipsy website describes it as the perfect base for a powder highlight. That’s probably the only way I would use it, so I’ll give it a shot! I never pass up wearing TWO highlighters.

Too Faced | Lip Injection Extreme

I’ve never really been one to purchase or use lip plumpers, so this is at least unique to my makeup collection. I’ve never really thought about plumping my lips to be honest, but I’ll give it a try! I heard this one is a bit on the painful side so wish me luck!

Eva NYC | Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner

I love using dry shampoos so the idea of a dry conditioner has me intrigued. This spray is said to be lightweight and will leave your hair soft, shiny and frizz-free. I like the soft and frizz-free part, but usually I’m using a dry shampoo to get rid of shine, so we will see how this goes!

Ulta3 | Nail Colour in Sizzling Red

I received a red nail polish in my June Ipsy Glam Bag so to see another one in my September Ipsy Glam Bag is a bit disappointing. Also, I very rarely wear red nail polishes. However, the Ipsy website says it is a one-coater, cruelty-free and long-lasting, so we will see how it performs! I still have to try out the nail polish I received last month, but I’ll do a Mani Monday for this one too at some point!

e.l.f. Clay Eyeshadow Palette in Smoked to Perfection

Ipsy calls this palette “practically error proof” as it swipes on sheer and is buildable. That makes me feel a bit better about the swatches! It did swatch smoothly so I can see these shadows being blendable, but it does lack some pigment. This seems like a perfect little eye shadow palette for a beginner, especially one who is experimenting with smoky looks. The colours are gorgeous though and it claims to be long-lasting. The shimmery shades were a bit chunky when swatched.

  1. Haha, the Too Faced lip injection gloss looks intimidating! It’s going to be painful? >_< I've tried lip plumpers in the past and they made me lips feel tingly and warm, which was kinda strange.

    • I have a feeling it will be painful! Actually, a friend of mine got it in her bag too and she had a bad reaction to it! I’m a bit nervous but I think I’m going to try it this weekend!
