September 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

My current makeup subscription box is from Ipsy. I was a bit skeptical about a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box because I didn't want to end up with a bunch of products I couldn't use or didn't know how to use. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products in a cute makeup bag, and I was sold after checking out their previous bags. If you're not very adventurous with makeup like me, it's a great way to build your makeup collection on the cheap and expand your makeup expertise!

The September Ipsy Glam Bag theme was Glamazon. The bag design was a bit boring and is my least favourite out of all the Ipsy bags so far this year. It featured feminine golden silhouettes that spell out the word "IPSY" with their hands. Meh. 

My bag this month was just ok. I'm convinced that not much effort went into this bag and that IPSY must be putting all their creativity in the December bag!

In my bag:

EYEKO Eye Duo liquid eyeliner

Onomie powerful priming serum 
Ulta3 nail colour in sizzling red
IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara in super black
Buff Her House of Exfoliation vanilla almond crumbles

I'm very happy to try 4 brands I have never heard of before. Thanks Ipsy, not for the product selection, but for the variety! I rate the September Ipsy Glam Bag 2/5 :( I'm pretty sure this is my lowest rating ever and I'm not happy about it!

The product I was most excited about was the Onomie priming serum. I've been a huge fan of the Too Faced Hangover primer so I was excited to see how the  Onomie primer stacked up.

More about the products inside:

EYEKO Eye Duo liquid eyeliner- I'm a huge fan of liquid and felt tip liners. I have never heard of EYEKO, and I was stoked to try this brand. This liner was exactly what I like in every way. I liked the felt on the tip of the liner. I was able to get a precise line and sharp wings. The formula was perfect and it wasn't too runny or thick.

Onomie powerful priming serum - I was really excited for this and was pleasantly surprised. This primer had a very nice subtle shimmer. It absorbed nicely and made my skin look super smooth and hydrated. Definitely my new "go to" primer! Thanks Ipsy for helping me discover this awesome brand!

Ulta3 nail colour in sizzling red- This nail polish is like any other drug store brand nail polish. I liked the finish, but didn't think there was anything spectacular about this polish. Meh!

IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara in super black- I liked this mascara very much. I was impressed with the way in made my lashes look longer and fuller. I did not like the odour though. It smells a lot like melted plastic. I'm not sure what's in it to make it smell this way, but I won't be using this mascara until I find out what it is!

Buff Her House of Exfoliation vanilla almond crumbles- I really liked this scrub. The fragrance was pleasant and I liked that the main ingredient is rice powder. It made my skin feel smooth and polished. A fantastic exfoliant for buffing your skin gently. 

What did you get in your September Glam Bag? I'd love to hear from you!
