My September Glam Bag Review

Hi everyone!

Hope you’re all having a delightful day. Today I wanted to give you a review of my September Ipsy Glam Bag. For those of you who don’t know, Ipsy is a website where you can subscribe to a monthly service that delivers six beauty samples, including a makeup bag, to your door. Not to mention, it’s only $10.00!

I love the Ipsy bag because it allows me to try out different beauty products before I take the plunge and purchase a full size. Although the monthly service only delivers sample sizes, these samples will last you for months. Ipsy has introduced a bunch of new brands to my makeup vocabulary. If beauty is an interest of yours, I would definitely suggest trying a monthly service like Ipsy!

For my review of the products that I received in my Ipsy box this month, I will be scoring them out of 10, 1 being the worst and 10 being an incredibly awesome product.

1.) The Bag

So with this subscription you receive a new makeup bag along with the beauty products, which is actually pretty cool (I now have a billion of these). Each cosmetics bag has a different design that coordinates with that month’s theme. This month’s theme was Glamazon. It’s definitely a unique design, but unfortunately I don’t care for it all that much.

Score: 4/10

2.) Naked Cosmetics Aloe Cream

I had never heard of this brand until I received this product, so I was really excited to try it out! I wasn’t sure if it was a body cream or a face cream, so naturally I tried it out on both and it reacted well. After doing a little research, I found out that this product is meant for both face and body. It’s a pretty thick cream, but it doesn’t leave a sticky feeling afterwards. The majority of its base is aloe, which is incredibly beneficial to the skin by promoting skin cell regeneration.

Score: 7/10

3.) Amie Facial Exfoliating Polish

To begin, this brand’s products are made from 95 percent natural ingredients, which is always a plus! This is a face wash with tiny beads for exfoliation. I love exfoliating cleansers, but I can usually only use them a few times a week because they dry out my skin. However, this is the MOST moisturizing cleanser that I have ever used. I almost feel like I don’t even need to moisturize my skin afterwards. The only downside is that it’s a very gentle formula, so I worry about my face getting a deep clean.

Score: 8/10

4.) It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

It Cosmetics is a new brand that has been gaining a lot of popularity as of recently. I haven’t tried any products from them except a foundation brush, so I was excited for this mascara! After using it for three weeks now, I can honestly say that I really like it. I wouldn’t say it is absolutely amazing, but it’s something that I would try again. It reminds me a little bit of the Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced. It lifts the lashes and gives them a plump, voluminous look. I actually enjoy the smaller size of the product because the applicator makes it easy to apply.

Score: 8/10

5) Bellapierre Cosmetics Loose Powder Blush

I have received this brand from Ipsy before and every time that I try a new product it is mediocre. I saw that this was a loose powdered blush and was a little skeptical on how well it would actually work. Unfortunately, I was right to be skeptical because this product is pretty disappointing. Blush is something that needs a little precision, and having it as a loose powder makes the application process extremely difficult. The color is a nude pink with shimmer, but like I said, it is hard to apply and never turns out looking flawless.

Score: 2/10

6) Coastal Scents Eyeshadow Brush

I had heard of Coastal Scents before receiving this bag, but I wasn’t sure what they were all about. After visiting their site, I found that they are an inexpensive brand and are known for their brushes. I received this eyeshadow brush in my glam bag and was happy to try it out. It has super soft bristles and collects the pigments well. I wasn’t positive on how to use it at first, but I realized it works well with loose eyeshadows. This is one of those products that I don’t necessarily “need” but it doesn’t hurt having it.

Score: 6/10

 

Thank you guys for stopping by! I hope this encourages you to try out your own Ipsy Glam Bag subscription.

Have a Delightful Day,

Kaitlin
