Ipsy September 2016 Glam Bag


I’ve been off and on with Ipsy since my first glam bag in January. My last Glam Bag arrived in May and I took little hiatus,  but now I’m back with that pink envelope in the mail we all love. If you haven’t heard of Ipsy it’s a monthly makeup subscription service that ships out 4-5 deluxe and full sized products each month.
**Note: This post contains my Ipsy referral link

Price? $10 US. If you live in Canada add $4.95 for shipping.
Value? The value depends on which products you get; however, bags normally average out to around $49US. In addition each month comes with a new makeup bag.
Customize? Yes. Fill out a profile quiz to get personalized products. Also if you give feedback on your products each month you will have a greater chance of getting something you like next time.
Points? Yes. Earn points through referrals and reviewing the products in your glam bag. In addition you get 100 points for joining. Points can be redeemed for an extra item in your next glam bag. You can sign up HERE!

The theme this month was Glamazon. Here’s the bag!


Crown Brush C494 Ombre Angle Brush (Full Size) $7.99
This brush is so soft! My brush collection is ever growing thanks to Ipsy. There are so many different types of brushes available it’s hard to know which ones you need. Ipsy takes the guess work out of it. This brush has synthetic bristles for applying highlighter and blush.

Tarte Lash Paint Mascara (3ml)$9.86
A mascara! This is my first mascara from ipsy. I love that Ipsy gives you the opportunity to try some high end brands without shelling out the cash for a full sized product.


Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask (1oz) $4.50
I never seem to have a shortage of hair treatments and masks thanks to all my subscriptions, but I did just finish two so it’s nice to replenish my stock. This product is formulated without the use of artificial dyes, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, or silicones.

Dr. G Daily Safe BB Cream in Fair (5ml) $3.56
I finally got a BB cream from Ipsy! I was rather disappointed that the tube is 80% filled with air but this matches my skin really well and blends like a dream. It also has SPF 30 so it’s a good product to have on my radar even if I won’t get much use from it.


Be a Bombshell Nail Polish in Holy Fuchsia (Full Size) $6
I would have liked to see a colour more fall oriented like the Trust Fund Beauty polish some subscribers received. I’m surprised Ipsy didn’t choose the shade Glamazon from Be a Bombshell as it fits perfectly with the theme. I don’t have a shade quite like this so it’s a nice addition to my nail polish box.

Ion half heartedly investigates and then get’s bored. Life of a cat.

This month’s glam bag had a value of $31.91 not including the makeup bag which is incredibly low for Ipsy. I’ve had bags with upwards of $80 in value before. Normally that would bother me, but for once I like each and every item in my bag so September’s Glam Bag is a win for me.
