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!

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!

Full Face Drugstore Favorites

RIMMEL LONDON Stay Matte Foundation ($4.99)

I was SO weary about this foundation at first, I mean…it’s probably the cheapest foundation I have ever seen. But, I had heard a few reviews on it which were positive so I decided to give it a try myself. When you first squeeze it out of the tube it seems VERY thick, it’s basically a cream. A little goes a long long way. Honestly though, I really do love it! It has amazing coverage and although it’s “matte” it doesn’t make my skin look awful. I don’t really have dry nor oily skin, but I don’t like the dewy look, I feel like it just makes me look gross and sweaty. So for that reason this foundation gives me the perfect finish.

REVLON Age Defying Targeted Dark Spot Concealer Treatment ($12.99 YIKES)

First off, $12 is quite a bit, for me, to be paying for a drug store concealer. I definitely was looking at the wrong price tag and did not realize until I was already home later that day. But…it is a really good concealer and I use it every single day. I purchased the lightest shade in the line, and its tinted a bit yellow. It’s great for highlighting underneath your eyes and hiding dark circles. I also use it on any blemishes I have that may be red or dark. The yellowness in the product really helps with canceling out these colors.    

RIMMEL LONDON Stay Matte Pressed Powder ($4.99)

I’ve used this powder way before I ever purchased the foundation. It has always been one of my favorites for setting my foundation and concealer. As I stated earlier, I do not like the dewy look to my skin. So patting a bit of this powder over my face really reduces the shine that I dislike. You can get the powder in a translucent color, but i prefer the colored version just to add that little extra touch of coverage!  

NYX Powder Blush in Pinched ($5.99)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE these blushes! It was really hard to just pick one for this post. I had to go with Pinched- I mean I accidentally bought it twice because I loved the color so much. It’s a beautiful peachy color, many say its a dupe for NAR’s Orgasm. Hands down these NYX blushes are some of my all time favorites, I use them every single day.



 NYX Matte Body Bronzer ($8.99)
Honestly, I have yet to find a drug store bronzer that i absolutely love. If I had to   choose one though, it would definitely be the NYX matte bronzer. It can look a bit orangey on some skin tones hough, so be careful! I use this bronzer to contour my cheekbones, forehead, nose, and jawline. If you’re not looking to contour, just simply give your face some color, this is not the bronzer for you.

Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Tiki ($9.00)

BEST (only??). DRUGSTORE. HIGHLIGHT. EVER. Not exaggerating here, this product is awesome. It gives off just a touch of gold shimmer, but isn’t over powering at all. I apply it to the tops of the cheekbones, center of my nose, cupids bow, brow bone, and the inner corners of my eyes.      

L’ORÉAL Telescopic Mascara ($9.99)

This mascara is probably my favorite one ever. The length it will give your lashes is UNREAL. The thin brush ensures that you will hit every single lash, and makes it super easy to coat your bottom lashes too! I went back and forth on whether or not to buy this product, I mean I have TONS of mascaras already so it felt like just a waste of $10. I’m SO glad I did! Not a day goes by that I don’t use it. You can pair this with a volumizing mascara if you really want your lashes to pop.

    NYX Round Case Lipstick in Pure Nude ($3.99)

Another product by NYX that I’m in love with! I have tons of these lipsticks. They are amazing and so so so affordable! I absolutely love nude lips- especially pink and peach nudes. This lipstick is peach based and is just beautiful. (Honorable mention to my other favorite lipstick shade in this collection: Harmonica, such a pretty frosty pink color!).

NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel ($4.99)

Yes I know, you’ve probably seen these suckers everywhere. But really, they are amazing. I love this shade because it’s neutral and doesn’t block out the color of the lipstick underneath. These can even be worn alone and give off the perfect amount of color. Definitely pick up a few if you ever get a chance!

Let me know your current drugstore favorites!
