September MyGlam/Ipsy Bag

MyGlam this week announced they've changed their name to Ipsy--Beauty By You, which promises to be bigger and better. The biggest change is that the bag experience will be more personalized, ala Birchbox. In past bags, subscribers all got the same products, with shades/colors varying. The biggest change I noticed is that my bags usually come at the beginning of the month, and this bag didn't appear until this week. Myglam Ipsy is more geared towards the younger demo than Birchbox, but I've loved subscribing and don't feel "too old" for the products, September's bag wasn't themed, that I could tell, other than introducing Ipsy. Let's see what I got:



SOHO Smudge Brush--Used for creating a modern smoky eye by smudging liner, blending colors, and for applying shadow directly into the lash line. I love brushes, and MyGlam has given them out in past bags, so I'm happy with this one. I've seen them sold at Walgreens.

Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Split End Sealer--A repairing lotion that instantly binds the frayed and separated ends of your hair so you can skip the trim and keep your length. Use a tiny amount on dry or wet hair. I have split ends on the hair that grows at the nape of my neck--does that make sense? This sealed them! I love it.

Jane Sparkle Gloss--Shimmer Gloss offers moisturizing, light reflecting medium coverage for your lip with Vitamin E. Wear alone or over lipstick. I had no idea this company was still around! It takes me back...anyway, I like the smell and color. Does it last forever, no? But it's great to keep in a bag or purse.



Mirabella Eye Shadow--Contains a lightly pearlized sheen to softly illuminate the eyes. This talc-free formula gives smooth application and beautiful, pure color. The formula is also paraben-free, gluten-free, fragrance-free as well as D4 and D5 free. It's a standard light brown, and I thought for sure I had this shade somewhere in my shadow collection, but I didn't! It has decent pigmentation, and the shadows are $10.

Circus Polish by Andrea's Choice in Tightrope--This is the third month I've received a polish from this line. And this color is my FAVORITE out of the 5 shades, and my favorite out of the 3 I've received (orange and yellow). It's a gorgeous purple-raspberry-pink. Even if you hate purple, but love pink, you'd like this shade. It dries very quickly, very matte, but chips so fast. A clear coat is a necessity.
blurry, but I wanted you to see the color

Black Clutch--Simple, zippered black clutch that I can always find a use for...

  29. Oh wow, that's interesting that they re-branded themselves. I cancelled my subscription after 2 months.

    Nail polish 3 months in a row?! Awesome hehe but a bummer that it chips.
