ipsy September 2014 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I got my goodies from ipsy Glam Bag a little later this month, but it was worth the wait. I love, love, love the bag. I can’t stress that enough. I can’t decide if this is my favorite or second favorite makeup bag from ipsy. So, I was slightly disappointed of course that I noticed there is surface damage on the studded side of the makeup bag. The cardboard insert is placed outside of the bag and on that side so it poked the holes in the material. That was in fact what I saw when I opened the pretty metallic pink padded envelope it came in. The corner of the cardboard insert was right on the largest of the holes. 😦 I can live with that though. What bothered me more was the damage caused by the corner of the cardboard insert to the first stud. I could only guess that during shipping, just like how it poked holes into the material of the surface of the makeup bag…..the cardboard insert got into a nook at the first stud and kinda pried it around a little bit — stretching the material. I did end up emailing ipsyCare about it and they were quick to respond and resolve my issue. I asked if there was any way I could get another makeup bag because mine was damaged and sent a picture with it. They’re going to ship one out to me. But anyway, here’s everything that I got from my ipsy September 2014 Glam Bag.

ipsy September 2014 Glam Bag

The first item I zeroed in is the Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser. I got another Nourish Organic product from an earlier ipsy Glam Bag and reviewed it here recently. It’s sitting on my bathroom counter currently as it’s the next thing I use once my current facial cleanser runs out. Next up is the Crown Brush Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush. Crown Brush is a brand I’ve heard about, but I usually like seeing makeup brushes in person before I place a purchase. Also, I already have a decent amount of makeup brushes that I’m not actively looking for more. This is a good way for me to try it out and assess for future makeup brush purchases. Next item I plucked out of the bag is the Pacifica Natural Water-Proof Eye Pencil. The shade I got is called Gunmetal and it looks to be a pretty shade, but I just have too many eye pencils currently so I’m saving this up to pass it on to someone else that will put it to good use. The next item I pulled out is the Cailyn Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss in Love Affair. As mentioned for months now, I have tons of lip glosses open so I’ll be saving this for my niece Jacey. This shade is right up her alley too. The last item in this month’s Glam Bag is the Mitchell and Peach Luxury Hand Cream. I’ve never heard of this brand and I think this is the first time I’m getting a hand cream from ipsy. This is the item I’m most excited to try out of everything I got. I’ll provide a full review once I’ve used it extensively.

Overall, a great Glam Bag but that’s mainly because I am so in love with the makeup bag this month. Just when I thought things were starting to fall into a plateau with my ipsy subscription….this month totally got me excited to see what next month’s bag brings!

    Yay for a great Ipsy bag! And especially since the folks at Ipsy are going to give you a new undamaged bag! My bag was almost identical to yours this month. I got a lipstick instead of a gloss and it is in a nice fall shade too. A bit on the dark side for me, but it will work as a stain. This is my 5th Ipsy bag and I have liked every one so far. The little bags are soo stinkin’ cute and one of my favorite things about Ipsy as the others cosmetics/beauty subscription boxes I got don’t come in such cute packaging. The Birchbox boxes are okay, but just okay and not really as useful as a little cosmetic bag is and the others don’t even have that little keeper cardboard box that Birchbox does. Don’t you just love seeing that beautiful bright pink shiny envelope in the mail? Do you peek at the previews? I don’t. I like to be surprised when I open it and discover the goodies inside.

    • Hi there! I’m so glad to hear that you love the program cause I do too! I see several complaints every month on their Instagram, but it doesn’t faze me. I don’t peek either. I love it when I just get the shiny pink metallic envelope in the mail every month. I’ve never had a glam bag where I disliked everything so far. It’s pretty consistent in terms of balance. I do end up trying new things that surprises me cause I thought for whatever reason it wasn’t going to be any good!
