Hola beauties! My Ipsy September Glam Bag Finally came in the mail on Monday. The theme this month is Like A Boss and the bag is black faux leather with little spikes, it’s so functional and cute! I will definitely be keeping this one even though an Ipsy makeup bag declutter is needed very soon. I was impatient waiting for my glam bag this month, I saw my spoilers ahead of time and was so excited for it to arrive!

ColourPop Lippie Sitx in Glam Bag Full Size $5
I may have squealed with delight when I saw ColourPop! This lip crayon is beautiful. Some subscribers weren’t happy with how bright it is, but I really do love it. I wore it to work the first day I received it unashamed of my bright bubblegum pink lips! Are any of you guys excited for the Sephora Colourpop launch on November 1st!?
Hanalei Papaya Enzyme Powder Cleanser 5 packets $7.14
A powder cleanser!? This is new to me, I guess you mix it with water and apply to your face? This is supposed to be good for any skin type and is infused with grapefruit seed oil and papaya enzyme. I was grumpy about this product at first because I originally thought Ipsy only included one packet, but it turns out there’s five. I was much happier with five!
Pixi Beauty Blush in Beach Rose Full Size ~ $10
I can’t find individual pixi blushes anywhere! I linked to the Beauty bronzer because it’s the closest thing I could find to this shade of blush that wasn’t in a palette. It didn’t come with a Kabuki brush though so I estimate the value around $10. I was so close to finishing my last pixi blush duo, so this was well timed!
Smashbox Radiance Primer Deluxe Sample $9.75
This was my product request for the month. I’ve been using the pore filling version of Smashbox primer but I was interested in trying some of the other photo finish variations. YouTubers have said that while this primer makes your skin look radiant, the glow disappears beneath foundation. I’m sad to report that this is true.
I love that when Ipsy sends sheet masks you always get two. I love trying new sheet masks, but the value wouldn’t be there for me if I only got one. I’m excited to try the lily mask as it claims to minimize puffiness around the eyes and brighten uneven skin tone. The Mugwort mask claims to clear pores and hydrate the skin. Both sound like they’re worth a shot.
My glam bag worked out to $36.94. It’s getting rarer and rarer for me to have a high ticket glam bag which is disappointing, but I will use everything in my bag so I’m happy. I’m starting to thinking about switching to a a sub with consistent higher values, especially since US subscribers get way more value out of this sub than Canadian subscribers.
For instance, Ipsy’s website has said that they are working on shipping their Ipsy shopping deals to Canada soon, but it’s been at least a year since I last read that and it hasn’t happened. Instead, they recently began offering cash back rewards to US subscribers for shop purchases that Canadians can’t take advantage of. I’m annoyed when I pay the same amount of USD plus shipping and I don’t get the same treatment. What do you guys think?
