September Ipsy Bag Review

Happy Tuesday!

I figured instead of posting what was in the Ipsy bag every month I would give it a week or so to test out the products and let you know my opinion. Because that's what every one really wants to know, isn't it? :)
I really got a lot of use out of this month's Ipsy bag. I never tried any of these products before so all of it is a first for me. (By the way - can I just say how difficult it is to take photos in the fall? It's dark before you know it and when you want to take pictures the natural sunlight is already gone! *The blogger's real struggle*)

Everything in the picture above was included with the Ipsy bag minus the Kiss nail decals. 
 I actually picked these up while we were grocery shopping. I'm such a sucker for nail stickers. 

 Caviar CC creme not only smells amazing but works amazing as well. The only grip I would have is that it leaves your hair with the stiff-gel consistency, but all you need to do is brush your hair out and it's gone! You can find this product here. Originally $25. The size of the one from Sephora ia 2.5 Fl. Oz and mine is .85. But this will definitely get me a few more uses, especially if you just use it on your ends like I'm doing. 

This is the only product I didn't use. I'm always weary of facial products because of my skin type. I may try it tonight. If it's something to write home about I'll do a review, if not, consider it not that great. Haha. Anyway, you can find it here for the full size it's $13.99 

 I was super excited to see this shadow brush in my Ipsy bag. I saw Crown brushes at IMATS this past spring but never tried them. I love this brush because it's a two in one. It picks up pigment amazing-ly and I seriously have no complaints. I have been using it every day ever since. I tried to search for this brush on their website but didn't have any luck. 

 I have tried a Pacifica product in another Ipsy glam bag and was not a fan - it was an eyeshadow duo and I just didn't like the way the colors came out - not very pigmented. This eye pencil however is AMAZING. It's so soft and smooth. Immediately after I tried it I went onto their website and wanted to see about ordering more. You can find them here for $11.00

I have never heard of Hikari lipsticks before this Ipsy bag. It's such cute and simple packaging (The best kind). I can't express how much I love this color and it's seriously perfect for Fall and Winter months. It's the prettiest cranberry shade here for $13.00

Swatches of the eyeliner and lipstick. 

I spent $10 for the Ispy bag and got $63 worth of sample sized products.
