September ipsy bag review

  Yes I love me some ipsy bag!!! I have been signed up since December 2012 and I love it! This month I got some great stuff, some ok stuff, and some stuff that made me think ....really this is what you chose to promote !


  *First let's address this bag situation...I don't hate it, I don't like it, and I don't really know what to think about it. I just don't know what to think about it...but hay it's free, and it's another cosmetic bag for me to use for something so I'm cool with it ;]
 
 

  *Next is the Cailyn tinted lip balm. LOVE!!!! this stuff. This stuff feels like a lip balm but is opaque and looks like a matte lipstick. It is a little pricey but the product goes a long way! Above I had been wearing it for 6 hours and did not have to reapply once. And the picture of the transfer was taken about 10 minutes after it had set.



  *NYX single eye shadow in a beautiful dark grey purple color [ I have no idea what color it is so sorry I FAIL!] . Do I even need to say anything about nyx ? I shouldn't. This stuff lives up to the hype. It is so pigmented and cheap ! The only thing I love more then the day after thanksgiving sales, is makeup that is just as good as a high end brand for less then half the price. Love this color as well! Perfect for going out for a night out.



  *Starlooks Obsidian Khol Eye Pencil- I like this pencil, I wouldn't say I love it but I do like it and will definitely be using it. Pro's,  it goes on quite easily and it's not too soft like most Kohl liners.. Con's , it's not the blackest liner in the world and it needs to be set or it won't last all day. I don't know if I will use it as an eyeliner because I do have slightly oily lids, but I will use it to define my lash line . In the picture above I did use it as an eyeliner and it was on for about 6 hours here, It didn't fade much , but it did keep dripping down the outer corner of my eyes.



  *Victoria Jackson Taupe Brow Pencil Ok so personally I DO NOT like this eyebrow pencil. I have thick eyebrows and this stuff does not color it in, it coats it, as you can see in the picture. It truly feels like I just painted my eyebrows with an ink pot. I have nothing more to say about this one. I wish I could have got a pic of this but it would not photograph the true thickness of it.



  *Elizabeth Mott It's So Big Volumizing Mascara Not much to say about this one either. It's not as voluminous as I would like, it flakes, and I am not a fan of the brush. I think that just about sums it up! In my picture involving my eyeliner I am wearing the mascara. As you can see it transferred and caused what looked like a shadow under my lower lashes but that is actually the mascara. I had just wiped the fall out with out thinking. But there is a substantial amount of fall out.
