September 2015 Ipsy Bag

So it is with mixed feelings, that I am writing this post this month as I have finally decided to severe the cord with Ipsy. For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while now, will know that I have not been happy with Ipsy for a while now - just the range of products provided, and the fact that every month, I get the same things from the same companies. The variety is gone, I always get stuff from City Color, and I always get lip products, no matter how many times I've said I didn't want them, or that I re-do the profile test. Also, I always seem to get the smaller name brand stuff and never the Glam Glow, Too Faced, Temptu, Pixi etc etc..

Anyways, onto the contents of my bag this month:
1. NYX Cosmetics - Ipsy Eye Shadow Trio
2. Laneige - Water Sleeping Mask
3. City Color Cosmetics - City Chic Lipstick
4. Not Soap, Radio - Revitalizing Hand/Body Lotion
5. Formula X - Nail Color in Ignite

The Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is my all time favorite product ever received in my Ipsy Bag subscription. This gives you baby soft skin when applied at night, before bed, and you wake up, wash it off and its just.... AMAZING. Sephora recently started carrying Laneige and you can pick it up here if you want to try it out.

I wasn't a fan of these two products - this is my 6th? or 7th City Color product now. While their stuff is good quality, I mean, I need some variety. I will leave this for a friend to use. 

The lotion - smelled quite artificial, not a fan. 

Beautiful eyeshadow trio, however I have so many nudes already that I will save this for a friend and give it to her along with the City Color Lipstick.

Sephora and the Formula X nail polishes are always good, can't complain.

I'm currently looking at subscribing to a new box, anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking of either Urthbox or Mishibox but I'm still looking around!

Until next time, xo - M.
