Beauty Subscription: Ipsy Glam Bag September 2013

My Glam Bag was delivered this past Saturday. After a long weekend of me and the husband's home rehab project, I finally get some peace and quiet this morning to swoon over all of my new goodies!

The theme for this month's bag is Classic Beauty. I really really love this month's bag design! I think this is my number one favorite out of all the bags I've received so far! 

FREEMAN | Facial Paper Masks | Purifying, Hydrating, and Brightening

I can't wait to have a free day all to myself so I can sit back and just pamper myself crazy! Here's the deets on what each mask has to offer:

Purifying Paper Mask - "This serum-infused paper facial mask with Star Fruit helps calm skin stressed by flare-ups. Lavender and Niacinamide help balance oil production. Tea Tree soothes breakout-stressed skin. Perfect for combination to oily skin."

Hydrating Paper Mask - "Serum-enriched paper facial mask contains soothing Blue Agave to soften and rehydrate. Ultra-hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and Allantoin help give skin a refreshed look and feel for a smoother finish. Perfect for dry skin.

Brightening Paper Mask - "Serum-infused paper facial mask with Rose Extract illuminates dull skin. Reveal a smoother surface with Lactic and Glycolic hydroxy acids. White Tea and Licorice help reduce age spots for more even-toned skin. Perfect for dull skin."

I appreciate receiving these different facial masks to try because my skin goes through all of these things at different times. After reading what these have to offer, it's building up my excitement to use them! 

NYX | Eyeshadow Single | Hot Crystal


I like NYX cosmetics! They're nice quality and very affordable! I was excited to see that we were all going to get a NYX shadow in our Glam Bag this month but when I opened mine, I was like oooh a highlighter! Now I'm a bit disappointed after swatching this shade because it's got a bit too much glitter (based on my personal preference) and when I first applied the shadow to my hand, there was a LOT of fall out (so be careful if you received the same shade as me!)..... I'm looking at it on my hand again, I blew away the fall out and glitter and it's not bad. I'll keep this to use as a highlighter for my brow bone or inner corner of my eyes when I want to do something dramatic with eye makeup.

Starlooks | Kohl Eye Pencil | Obsidian

This is a big staple in a Classic Beauty's world! You can never go wrong with a black eyeliner. Need I say more? =) 

Elizabeth Mott | It's So BIG! Volumizing Mascara | Black

Another big staple! However I've never heard of Elizabeth Mott and this mascara, so I'm looking forward to trying this out! I currently have three different mascaras that I rotate on a daily. I haven't even open my Pixi mascara from last month's bag yet! Once I am done with my current three, I have Pixi and this mascara lined up next in line =)

Cailyn | Tinted Lip Balm | Big Apple


I really like this lip balm! It's very pigmented and creamy! I haven't worn it long enough to test its powerstay but stay tune for a full review! 

Overall I really like this month's Glam Bag! All of these beauty products are essentials and so I will definitely be using all of the items. For $10 a month, not a bad deal at all! =)

Have you gotten your Glam Bag yet? What did you get this month?
