September AND October Ipsy Bag Reviews

Sept 14 Ipsy September 14 Ipsy 2
Crown Infinity Shadow/Crease Brush ($7): I am really impressed with this brush.  I normally use Sephora's brushes and it takes a lot for me to deviate from long-time beauty loves.  The bristles are super soft and I love the shape of the smaller brush.  It's perfect for applying shadow in the eyelid crease.  

Pacifica Water-Proof Eye Pencil (full size, $11):  I don't actually use eye pencils any more...and this color looks like it should be worn by a robot whore. 

Cailyn Art Touch Tinted Gloss in Love Affair (full size, $19): I was really really excited to see a great Fall lip color in my bag.  This one did not disappoint.  It has great color and gives just the right amount of shine.  

Mitchell and Peach Luxury Hand Cream (30 ml, $8.50):  I really like this lotion.  And that's about all I an say about it.  It doesn't have much of a scent, and it moisturizes.  So, I guess it operates as a lotion.

Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser (1 oz., ~$2.30): I love having these little samples to use when I go on trips.  However, I've tried a few items from this line and I've never been bowled over.  I've pretty much just thought everything was...meh.

September's bag was a GREAT value!  I technically got 3 full sized products if you count the brush.  Bag Total: About $47!

Ayres Patagonia Body Butter (1 oz. ~$4.00):  This stuff smells like medicine.  I can't even get past the smell enough to tell you anything else about it.

Ecru New York Acacia Beauty Balm for Hair (1 oz., $12):  Apparently, if we add BB to products it makes them better?  My hair is sort of greasy any way, so I think I will be passing on it.  It sounds like it just weighs down  your hair.

Jessie's Girl Baked Eye Shadow (0.7 oz., $4): I don't even know the words to describe this color.  It's metallic white mixed with brown and it's really hard to get an even color.  I haven't used an eye shadow that wasn't in the Naked palette for about a year. 

Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths (2oz. ~ $3): I didn't actually try these because I like to save items like this for traveling.

Starlooks Lip Gloss (0.3 oz. ~ $6):  This is my new favorite lip gloss.  It's the perfect size for my purse and is a great everyday color.  I don't have to reapply that much and it's moisturizing without being sticky.

I was slightly disappointed in the value of this bag....only $29....and no full sized products.
