September 2016 IPSY Review

September 2016 IPSY bag

I have been a long time subscriber to Ipsy. I have subscribed since their second bag. I seriously love this subscription! It is so inexpensive, yet they usually have a great value to the bag. The bags are so fun. I use the bags to keep my makeup and brushes in when I travel. They often include brands I have never heard of and brands I have. They include FULL SIZE products and deluxe size samples. I have found many holy grail items because of Ipsy.

Cost: $10.00/month

Ships: To the US and Canada


This month’s bag print was okay! Definitely not one of my favorite prints! However, the bag felt like nicer quality. I couldn’t wait to dig in and see what all I received!


Tarte Tartiest Lash Paint

This is a sample size. I love Tarte products and I love trying mascaras. This mascara looks really cool and I love the wand. I can’t wait to try it!

This is a deluxe size sample. I also love this brand of cosmetics. This is a very subtle highlight, but it is gorgeous. I think that you could build it to a more intense highlight. I am going to use it on its own and as a base. I love the shade and it feels so smooth. I can’t wait to use it.

Naked Advanced Aloe Cream

This is a sample size. I have never tried anything from this brand before. I love aloe in my skincare so I am excited to try this product.

E.L.F. Clay Eyeshadow Palette in Smoked To Perfection ($6)

This is a FULL SIZE. I really love E.L.F. products. They are so affordable and decent quality. I don’t usually navigate to purple shades, but I will try this palette. Some of the shades feel very powdery and chunky so I am not sure if I will like this palette.

Amie New Leaf Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish

Amie New Leaf Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish

This is a sample size. I love exfoliants and I have never tried this one. It cleans pore-deep for clearer, softer skin. I will definitely try it.


I liked this bag better than I originally thought I would. It isn’t my favorite bag ever, but I will try most of the products. I am looking forward to trying the highlighter, cream, exfoliant, and mascara. I can’t wait to see what October holds. I can’t believe Ipsy is only $10! I will continue to subscribe to Ipsy! DUH!!
