Early Access to view your September 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag is live! Before you keep reading below, I’m just going to warn you I’m going to be a bit of a negative-nancy…I’m not super thrilled with this months bag. But if you check out my other reviews, I usually love them. If you aren’t familiar with Ipsy, feel free to check them out by clicking HERE. It’s a monthly subscription service that costs $10, and you receive 4-5 beauty products each month. Ipsy is awesome for anyone who wants to try out new beauty products, and I love my little collection of makeup bags that I get every month!

Here is what I’ll be getting in my September 2015 Ipsy Bag :

So when I saw the first Ipsy September 2015 spoiler stating that every subscriber would be receive either a NYX Eyeshadow Trio or a GlamGlow Mask….I KNEW I, and most people, would be getting the (cheaply made and terribly pigmented) NYX Trio! I feel like Ipsy gives out a VERY limited number of the “high-end” samples, and its mostly to very well known youtubers/bloggers that will bring in more subscribers. To add some positivity to this, at least the nail polish I’m getting is in a color I MIGHT use when I actually do my own nails once every 5 years. I say “I do not like or have a use of this product” in the surveys, yet I have gotten them so often recently. I’m hoping this eyelash curler won’t be messed up and broken like the last one I received from Ipsy. I’m super stoked about the bronze eye pencil though! Hoping it is of good quality to make up for this months flop bag. Disclaimer: I understand Ipsy is for the purpose of testing sample products, I’m usually super happy with my bags, I just needed to put out a little rant on this one!

These are other items you might be receiving in your September 2015 Glam Bag :

Looking at all of these amazing products makes me so sad! I would have loved to get some of these! I’m super jealous to any of you lucky ones out there, I hope you get everything you want in your September 2015 Glam Bag from Ipsy!

Ipsy Glam Bag Sneak Peek / Early Access: June 2015

IPSY June 2015

It’s finally time for the June 2015 Ipsy sneak peek / early glamroom access! I have to say, I’m a LITTLE disappointed that I’m getting another Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Foundation Primer, I really wanted to try the Too Faced Melted Lipstick…I was also really hoping for the It Cosmetics Brow Power Pencil, but sadly I won’t be getting it this time. Overall, I still an happy with what I’m getting and hopefully I will use some of it. If you aren’t familiar with Ipsy, feel free to check them out by clicking HERE.

• Smashbox Cosmetics – Photo Finish Foundation Primer
• tre’StiQue – Mini Shadow Crayon
• Keratherapy – Daily Smoothing Cream
• Dr. Brandt Skincare – Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner
• J. Cat Beauty – Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain

I’m REALLY hoping that I receive a normal color of the shadow crayon, if its the green one I might actually cry…I’ve gotten so many weird colored shadows/eyeliners that are just rotting in my collection..

I went ahead & decided to post what other people could potentially get in their bags this month too! Everyone will be getting either the Too Faced Melted Lipstick or the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer as one of their items!

Here are the other products you might receive in your Ipsy June 2015 Bag:

I would have to say I’m most excited for the Briogeo Leave-In Conditioner, Chella Eyebrow Pencil, and Urban Decay Lip Primer Pencil & Lipgloss! Heck, I’m also excited for the Luxie Beauty Eyeshadow Brush! Can’t wait to get this months bag in the mail in just a few weeks! I’ll get back to posting frequently soon, I promise.

Another month, another IPSY glam bag! I know its been awhile, I got really caught up in the holiday season but I’m back now and I can’t wait to get back into the blogging world.

» Elizabeth Mott – All Over Shadow Brush
PINK! I was super excited to get this because you can never have enough brushes, AND it was pink. It’s super soft and dense, I will probably be using it for blending more than anything.

IMG_0193

» (MALIN+GOETZ) – Mojito Lip Balm
Excited to try this out! It has a very simple and basic formula, hopefully it won’t be as drying as other lip balms, which is ironic.

IMG_0194

» Nourish Organic – Renewing Eye Cream
I already love this brand. I’ve purchased their full size face cleanser and face lotion because of ipsy. I will definitely be using this!

IMG_0196

» Pacifica – Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow
Gorgeous color, honestly was not expecting it to be so pigmented. I’m just very guilty of never using all the single shadow pots I have…palettes are just so much more convenient.

» BelláPierre – Shimmer Powder
Ugh, yes. I was hoping to get this beautiful white shade over the other two that were being given out. This is going to look amazing as an inner corner highlight. Also, superrrrr pigmented!

IMG_0192

» Benefit – Posie Balm
BONUS ITEM! I finally stumbled upon this before it was sold out! I had over one thousand extra ipsy points that I just kept forgetting to spend. This little baby costed me 500, but better than just letting them expire, right? I was kinda disappointed because what you see here…is literally all of it. I was expecting at least a little more product. But I understand it is a sample size and it is a higher end brand. Either way, its still really cute and very moisturizing!

Thanks for reading & see you next month!

Urban Decay – Naked On The Run: Swatches & Review

naked

Ahhhh, I LOVE Urban Decay! I own every Naked palette and will probably continue to own them in the future, they are by far my most favorite eyeshadows. I pre-ordered my Naked On The Run palette from Sephora.com the day it was released. It costs $54 and includes 6 eyeshadows, blush, bronzer, lipgloss, eyeliner, and mascara. I think its an awesome palette and it’s so convenient to have it all confined to one simple case!

shadowswatches

I know I don’t have the best quality pictures, but for what it is, the color payoff is great. I’m happy they included matte shades to balance out the shimmery ones. These colors will create an amazing smokey eye, I’m beyond excited to start using it often!

– 0.4 oz Eye Shadows
Dive (metallic rose/gold micro-shimmer)
Fix (soft taupe matte)
Resist (medium metallic taupe)
Dare (medium brown matte)
Stun (metallic bronze/light gold micro-shimmer)

swatches

– 0.3 oz Bronzer
Medium bronze matte

– 0.3 oz Blush
Vibrant pink/light shimmer

– 0.07 oz All-over Eye Shadow
5050 (cool bisque satin)

swatch2

lipgloss– 0.13 oz Full-Size Naked Ultra Nourishing Gloss Lip Gloss
Sesso (rose/pink shimmer)

eyeliner– 0.03 oz 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
Stag (deep brown satin)

mascara– 0.13 oz Perversion Mascara
Blackest Black

Overall, so far I am completely happy with this palette. At first, I thought the bronzer was going to be very light and have an orange tint to it, but when I actually tried it on it was just perfect. I love love love the blush in the palette too. The 5050 shadow is being mistaken by some people for a highlight, but it is indeed an eyeshadow. It can be used as a highlight tough, I suppose! I was super excited to get another Perversion Mascara. I previously had gotten a sample size from Ipsy and instantly fell in love with it. I’m also really stoked to try out the new Stag eyeliner. It will complement these shadows so well. Definitely worth the money for me!!
