Well, my September Ipsy came – I’m always the last it seems – and I’m just not in love with it this month. It’s very likely because I already own basically all these products in one form or another. However, the bag is cute, we use them to collect various items, and I’m really happy with some of the changes Ipsy has made recently:
- New referral program! Now you can refer your friends and get points to save up and not have to get 2 friends to sign up in a month to receive a referral bonus!
- The review section in my Glam Room is MUCH MUCH faster. It took a long time for me to do the surveys before and now it doesn’t take nearly as long. Hooray!
The Description: Monthly Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Comes with a cute little bag to store your loot.
The Price: $10/month
September 2013 Ipsy Classic Beauty
Ipsy as always arrives in this wonderful pink metallic bubble mailer! I love it!
Theme: Classic Beauty This is totally 80s throwback to me. I guess the blue mesh & lace pouch is too sorta!
All the offers On the back of the card you can discover the brands that were in all the variations. When you log into your Glam Room you can get the codes for those offers even if you didn’t receive a sample!
J.Cat Beauty Fantabulous Lipstick I would love this color if it were a concealer. Me & nude lipsticks just don’t happen. Ew. Maybe it’s a Halloween choice. I guess this is my Halloween Ipsy and I just need to suck it up.
Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara Black Mascara. Got plenty of it, but I love to try new ones! But I seem to remember that I GOT MASCARA IN LAST MONTH’S IPSY BAG!
Starlooks Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil I personally didn’t need a new black liner, but it’s always nice to try out a new one and this is full size. I do seem to remember Halloween coming up and sometimes you need black liner for costume stuff!
Victoria Jackson Taupe Brow Pencil I just got a few brow pencils. INCLUDING IN LAST MONTH’S IPSY BAG!
NYX Single Eye Shadow This is a gorgeous color! I haven’t opened it yet because I’m considering what to do with this bag, as everything else will go unused.
Em Cosmetics Sample This is a small sample of Michelle Phan’s Em Cosmetics new Life Palette!
A diagram! I LOVE DIAGRAMS! I find them so helpful!
So, really, I understand when I get duplicates from other boxes – that’s not unusual and most people who subscribe to a subscription box aren’t getting 50 of them a month. Getting a duplicate isn’t an issue for me. When I get duplicates (no, not the same brand but the same thing) from the prior month’s Ipsy, that’s when I start to wonder what the heck is going on!
After I posted this review, I decided to give this bag away! Hoping it goes to a good home where it is loved! Ends 9/30 at 11:59pm Eastern! Please also check out all my other giveaways!
What do you think of my Ipsy? Do you think it’s weird to have the duplicate items, or would you be ok with it?
