Hello everyone! It’s time to reveal what I got in my September Ipsy Bag. The theme this month was Street Style. In case you haven’t heard about Ipsy before, it’s a $10 a month subscription service where you receive four to five deluxe samples and/or full-size products from skincare, makeup, hair and beauty brands. When you sign up, you take a quiz about your preferences, skin type and tone, etc., and then the products each month reflect your interests. In case you’re interested in signing up, click here! I’ve been using Ipsy for about ten months now or so, and I’ve been happy with my bag every single month so far.

Long-lasting natural formula, provides hours of wear and contains beneficial ingredients great for the sensitive eye area. Formulated without: Animal ingredients (including carmine, beeswax and lanolin), animal testing, FD&C colors, mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, petroleum, propylene glycol, SLS, gluten, peanut oil and other ingredients you don’t want on your skin!
What I say: I’ve heard Pacifica is a really good natural brand, so I’m excited to try this out! This eyeliner is a beautiful sparkly gray color that applies very nicely. It has a creamy texture, and I can’t wait to use this in some fun fall eye looks.
Crown Brush Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush
What Ipsy says: This dual-ended brush offers the best of both worlds. The shadow brush is perfect for applying eye shadow or contouring the eye, while the crease brush is designed to be used dry for defining the eye, or wet for precision concealing. Created with Crown’s Infinity Synthetic Fibers.
What I say: Who doesn’t want more brushes?! This feels super soft, and I like the versatility of a double ended brush. I’ve never used anything by this brand before, but I can’t wait to use this!
CAILYN Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss in the shade Love Affair
What Ipsy says: Intensely Colorful + Artistically Glossy. CAILYN Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss delivers the stunning color impact of a lip stain and high shine of a lip gloss. This silky smooth gloss glides on your lips like butter, leaving you with a lacquer like finish.
What I say: I’ve never used anything from CAILYN before, but I’ve heard really good things. This tinted lip gloss smells really nice and light, and it’s a little less pigmented than I thought it would be but it’s still gorgeous! This looks like the perfect color for fall, as dark berry lips are definitely in right now.
Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser
What Ipsy says: This gentle cleanser washes away impurities without drying, irritating or causing redness. Cucumber hydrates and soothes. Watercress, rich in antioxidants, helps protect skin from free radical damage. Alcohol-Free. Gluten-Free. Vegan.
• Fragrance-free formula cleanses without drying or irritating
• Penetrates deep into pores to dissolve dirt, oil and makeup
• Packed with vitamins and antioxidants to nourish skin
What I say: I love trying out different cleansers, and this one has a very light, pleasant scent. I love cucumber, and I’ve used other cleansers and makeup wipes with that as an ingredient and loved them.
Mitchell and Peach Luxury Hand Cream
What Ipsy says: This easily absorbed hand cream contains Vitamin E, shea butter and English honey to soften, nourish and protect the skin. All Mitchell and Peach products contain matured essential oils from the Mitchell farming estate in Kent, England.
What I say: This definitely smells luxurious, and I absolutely love hand creams, especially since winter is coming (I shudder at the thought) and my skin gets a lot drier. For some reason my hands get super dry, so I will definitely have a use for this in the future!
