September 2013 Classic Beauty Ipsy Glam Bag

Hello lovelies!!

As many of you know I am a subscriber of Ipsy's Glam Bag, and today I got my September bag!! If you are unfamiliar with the Ipsy Glam Bag, it's a monthly subscription box that comes with 5 different makeup items that they choose for you based on a quiz that you take. It costs $10 a month, and the bag's value is typically between $40 and $50, so it's a good deal. If you're interested in joining please use my link *Here* because I will totally get free stuff based on the number of referrals I bring in.

In this month's bag I received a deluxe sample of It's So Big Volumizing Mascara by Elizabeth Mott, full size Tinted Lip Balm in Big Apple by Cailyn, full size NYX Eyeshadow in Cryptonite, full size Butter London Nail Lacquer in LA MOSS, full size Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner in Black, and a little sampler from the Life Palette Career Life - Look 3 Out To Lunch from em cosmetics.

I am in love with the design for this month's bag, it's totally gorgeous and I will definitely be using it to tote around my makeup when I'm out and about in the future.

It's So Big Volumizing Mascara by Elizabeth Mott

I have yet to try out this mascara, though it looks pretty standard. I'm unfamiliar with this brand, but so far Ipsy hasn't let me down so I have high hopes for it.

Tinted Lip Balm in Big Apple by Cailyn

This is another brand that I've never heard of, but I had to play with it right away because I just love the design. The color is gorgeous, but it's really not much of a balm and is really more of a stain. The brush in the tip is pretty nice, makes for nice and crisp lines.

NYX Eyeshadow in Cryptonite

This is my first NYX eyeshadow, but I have tried other items from NYX and have been very pleased with them. I like the color quite a bit, it's a pretty gun metal color loaded with shimmer that will be great to go with a smoky eye.

Butter London Nail Lacquer in LA MOSS
I have yet to try this brand, but LA MOSS is a very pretty wine color that's totally perfect for fall.

Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner
Jesse's Girl is another brand that I've never heard of, but I love me some liquid liner so I was totally stoked to see this in my Glam Bag. This is one of those pen style liners with a felt tip, and I dunno about you, but I love this style of liner. The packaging is really pretty, though the metal casing did make for some hyper glare on my camera (sorry!)

Sampler of The Life Palette Career Life by em cosmetics
For those of you not in the know, em cosmetics is YouTube makeup guru Michelle Phan's new makeup line. The products are really cool looking, the packaging is high quality and from my understanding the products are also of a very high quality. However they are also extremely expensive and I won't be buying any of this line in the near future unless I come across a random fortune. BUT I'm totally lusting over this brand as I love Michelle's videos and I trust her to make some bitchin makeup. So even though this is a teensy weensy little sampler, I'm really looking forward to checking out the pigmentation and the texture of the products.

But that pretty well wraps up this month's bag, so far I am pretty stoked to try out all of these items and I feel like a got a great value once again from Ipsy. Also, I will be posting more regularly (every Tues and Thurs) as my daughter will be starting day care in the near future giving me time to properly devote to the blogging. Again, if you want to sign up for Ipsy's Glam Bags please use my referral link *Here* so that I can get some cool goodies. I hope you're all having a wonderful week! Til next time!!


  1. oh i love this loot!ipsy seems a really good subscription.too bad they're only available in US :( and oh, welcome back Danielle! ^_____^

    1. It's some really cool stuff, I'm quite pleased with this month's bag. And it really is a bummer that they aren't an international subscription as they do have very nice items and they're one of the cheaper sub boxes I've found.

      And thanks!!! It's nice to be back!! xx

  2. Droooool that is an AWESOME bag. LOVE the Butter London polish, the lip stain and the sampler (Sorry about the caps but so excited!)

    1. The caps are totally forgiven because this really is an awesome bag. Everybody seems to be totally stoked about it. And the Butter London polish is such a gorgeous and vampy color, you're gonna love the swatches!!

  3. I'm not too happy with my bag this month, i got shampoo and conditioner BOOO

    1. That's a bummer! One of my friend's got that as well and she seemed excited about it, but I would have been disappointed. Next month will be better for ya.

  4. gah I hope I get similar things to your bag!!
