Unboxing – Ipsy September 2014

ipsy-september-2014-1

Things that make me happy: deliveries that arrive early!  Ipsy allowed me to take a sneak peek at what would be included in my glam bag this month, so I’ve known for a week or two what would be inside.  Initially I wasn’t particularly excited, but when I opened up the pretty pink envelope this afternoon I was pleasantly (un)surprised by the contents.  (I was also surprised by the cute gray bag they were packed in; I really like the understated look, and the weirdly-soft feel, of this month’s makeup bag!)

My Ipsy September 2014 glam bag included three different color cosmetics.  Cailyn is not a brand I have seen outside of Ipsy, but this tube of lipgloss (in the shade “Basic Instinct”) looks like the perfect neutral to keep in my desk drawer.  I also received a mini Pacifica eye pencil in “Fringe”, a basic brown.  It’s been a while since I used a liner that wasn’t black, so this might be a welcome change to my eye makeup routine.  Finally, I received a NYX eyeshadow in “Asphyxiation”, a shimmery navy blue.  I can definitely see myself using this with a damp eyeliner brush to line my eyes for an evening out.

My Ipsy glam bag also included two products that weren’t makeup.  First, there was an eyeshadow brush by Crown Brush.  This dual-ended brush has a regular shadow brush on one side, and a crease-specific brush on the other end.  I have a few eyeshadow palettes that I haven’t opened up yet, and this new brush will make blending and softening the colours that much easier.  The last product is a Briogeo “Don’t Despair, Repair” hair mask.  I still have a hair mask by Eva NYC that I received a few glam bags ago, but with winter coming up and my hair being colour-treated, I know this will be used very shortly!

Ipsy subscriptions cost about $15 US per month when shipped to Canada.  They always arrive promptly and they do consider your beauty profile when deciding which products to send.  It’s super-easy to subscribe here, and remember that you can usually skip the waiting list by sharing your subscriber status on Facebook.
