September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Does anyone else feel like you just woke up and suddenly it was almost through September? It came so quickly and I feel like summer passed by in a matter of minutes. September means the start of Fall, lots of people going back to school, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and of course my September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

I want to start off by saying that I totally love the bag this month! I love the chic black faux leather studded style. It’s cool but still simple and I can see myself using this for more than just miscellaneous storage.

Aside from the cool bag design, I think I got a pretty good bag this month. My September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag has three full size items which is awesome.

The items in my September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag are the following:

  • ColourPop Comsetics Lippie Stix in shade Glam Bag: This is an exclusive colour created in collaboration with Ipsy. It is a beautiful bold magenta hue and has a matte formula. I love ColourPop Lippie Stix (and liquid lipsticks) and have a bunch already so this was something I knew I would enjoy.
  • Hanalei Papaya Enzyme Powder Cleanser: I have never heard of a powder cleanser but this sounded neat. It’s meant to be a super gentle scrub that is safe for sensitive skin so I will be giving this a try.
  • Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Radiance Primer: This is pretty much a primer mixed with a glowing highlighter so it could be pretty cool. I don’t tend to go for radiant finishes since I already have pretty oily skin but I do like other Smashbox primers so I will give this a chance.
  • Manefit Beauty Planner Masks (2 sheet masks): This was so fun to get two sheet masks that count as one item. One mask is Astringent + Pore Care and the other one is Whitening + Brightening. Unfortunately I did try the Astringent + Pore Care one and though it felt nice on it left my skin very tingly afterwards so it might have been a bit strong for me.
  • Pixi by Petra Fresh Face Blush in shade Beach Rose: This blush has a soft rosy shade and is made with hydrating ingredients like Vitamin E. It’s really pretty and I liked the last Pixi brand items I tried, so I am excited about this blush.

Out of the items in this bag I really love the ColourPop Lippie Stix and Pixi by Petra Blush. The blush swatched nearly invisible on my arm, but on my cheeks it was a nice light rosy tint.

The Hanalei cleanser is a unique product I have never tried and I really like the chance to check out new items each month. The Smashbox primer has me a little skeptical due to my skin type but I love seeing this brand in my Ipsy bag.

Overall I think two items are amazing, one is neat to try (the powder cleanser), and two are so-so (Smashbox and the masks). I would say that is a pretty good verdict for my September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag, but I think I liked my August bag better.

Did you get a glam bag this month? Let me know what you got in yours or what you think of mine!

  • Pretty good bag! I think everyone got that Smashbox primer lol. Too bad the mask irritated your skin! But the Pixi blush looks beautiful. I have a rose gold version of this blush and it leaves a subtle but beautiful sheen on the cheeks. I also love the colour of that lippie!

  • That powder cleanser does sound intriguing! I enjoyed my September bag although I’m not sure I love the Smashbox primer yet either.

  • I think this has to be the nicest Ipsy bag I’ve seen design wise, very chic! Also liking the line up of items included too, the Pixi blush looks gorgeous!
