September Ipsy Glam Bag

This month I received my 23nd Ipsy Glam Bag. This month’s theme was “Face Fashion.” Here is what I received:

DSCN3768

acure
Acure Brightening Facial Scrub – $9.99 for 4 oz, I received 1 oz, a value of $2.50:
“Seas” the day with natural exfoliation from the ocean! This brightening scrub gently exfoliates your skin while removing impurities from your pores without taking your natural moisture with it.
20% off with code IPSYSEPT20 until 10/31/15.
My thoughts: Although this scrub is bright green and therefore kind of scary looking, it smelled nice and felt good and even left my skin feeling smooth!

nyx
NYX Cosmetics ipsy Eye Shadow Trio – $6 for a similar set:
This 3-color eye shadow palette gives you go-anywhere intensity day or night thanks to the highly pigmented formulations.
50 % off with code NYXBASESCVRD until 10/31/15.
My thoughts: I love the color palette as brown is the eye shadow color I choose most often! I’m not sure about the brand as I think I’ve used it before and it hasn’t really lasted, but I’m still trying it out!

minimatte
tre’StiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude – $32 for 3 minis, a value of $10.66 for one:
Fall in love with this new matte lip color. It’s buttery soft, rich, yet light as air and uber comfortable with a futuristic vibrant finish.
20% off $50 or more + free shipping with code IPSYINSIDER20 until 10/31/15.
My thoughts: I had extra points this month and I used them to get a mini matte shadow from this same brand. So I was excited to try another of their products! I’m not a big fan of nude lip color, but I like how it feels and it might be able to be combined with a colored lip gloss as well.

brush
Crown Brush Oval Concealer Brush – $2.98:
This Oval Concealer Brush is made of 100% Flexible Japanese Torray Taklon Bristles (synthetic). It can be used for application and blending of all concealer formulas and for applying cream based shadows.
My thoughts: This is a brush and I already have a lot of brushes, but I will add it to my collection!

nail
Formula X Nail Color in Ignite – $10.50 for .4 oz, I received .13 oz, a value of $3.41:
Fire up the imagination this fall with this smoking red-hot nail polish. Formula X Ignite is a universally flattering shade delivered in a patented "No Compromise" formula for xtraordinary color, xceptional performance, and xtra long-lasting shine.
My thoughts: I like the color and it went on nicely.

eye
Extra Item: tre’StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Venetian Gold – $$32 for 3 minis, a value of $10.66 for one:
This amazing 12 hour eye shadow has customizable color that you can build from a subtle wash to intense vibrancy. It’s also super blendable with a crease free, smooth finish.
My thoughts: I had received this same eye shadow in a different color and liked it, so I decided to add this gold color to my bag this month using my accumulated points!

Once again, I pay $10 a month for these bags. I love seeing what comes my way each month! The value received this month was $25.55, which is actually a much lower value than I received last month, though I like the products better. I also received an additional value of $10.66 using the points I had accumulated. My favorite item this month is the nail polish.
