Ipsy Review – September 2014

Hi everyone!!

It’s time for my monthly Ipsy review!!

DSCN3157If you’re not an Ipsy subscriber and want to be, click here!

DSCN3161The September theme is “Street Style.”

I’m not liking the September theme or makeup bag at all!

If you know me at all, you’d know that “Street” is most certainly NOT my style!

DSCN3166This month’s bag featured five products!

  • NYX – Hot Singles Eye Shadow
  • Pacifica – Natural Water-Proof Eye Pencil
  • Crown Brush – Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush
  • Hikari – Lipstick
  • Briogeo – Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask

DSCN3192NYX – Hot Singles Eye Shadow – Arrogance

I love eyeshadow, but I don’t ever see myself using this purple color! There were 11 possible color options, and I lucked out with purple! Yay me!!

DSCN3188Pacifica – Natural Water-Proof Eye Pencil – Fringe

I’ve never tried the Pacifica brand, so I’m interested to see how well it works!

It seems to create to a nice line but also smears quite easily.

DSCN3179Crown Brush – Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush

I’ve been wanting a crease brush, so I was really excited to see one in my bag this month!

I used it this morning, and it worked really well!

DSCN3176Hikari – Lipstick – Cabernet

I really like the color of this lipstick, but I don’t really like the formula.

When I tried it on, it seemed pretty dry even with lip balm underneath.

DSCN3170Briogeo – Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask

I don’t have much use for a repairing hair mask, so this product will probably be given to a friend!

DSCN3197For me, September was mostly a month of misses!

The only product I love is the eyeshadow brush.  The eyeliner isn’t horrible, but it’s also not fantastic.

I’m hoping October brings much better things than September!

How about you? What did you think of your September Ipsy bag?!

Julep Maven Review & Coupon – September 2014

Hi everyone!

I’m back and ready to share my September Julep Maven box with you!

If you’re not a Maven and would like to be, click here!!

DSCN2967I love finding these little purple boxes in my mailbox!

DSCN2970Here’s my September box!! It came with two little hard candies!


September’s theme is “Art Walk.”

This month featured a lot of pretty, muted nail colors.  Perfect for the fall!!

DSCN2986Nail Polish:

Quinn – Classic with a Twist – Charcoal Purple Satin

I’d say this polish is more navy and less purple.  Either way, it is absolutely perfect!! I used it last week and loved it!

Lupita – Classic with a Twist – Ripe Rhubarb Crème

This is the perfect pinky red! My nails are currently painted this color, and they are gorgeous (if I do say so myself!)

DSCN2990Plush Pout Lip Crayon – Cardinal Red Crème

I was daring this month and chose the red color!  I’m typically a pink girl, but I wanted a change!

DSCN2997The red is really nice!  I don’t know how often I’ll use it, but I’m glad to have it!

The moisture core is also a fantastic!

DSCN2979Once again, Julep has gifted us with a coupon!!  Just like the previous months, this code is good for two uses!

What did you get in your September box? Do you love it too?
