My Ipsy September Glam Bag “Face Fashion” included the following:
Ipsy NYX Eye Shadow Palette – Full Size ($6.00)
Don’t we all love NYX products? So when I got this beautiful 3 shade eye shadow palette, I got really excited. It’s an Ipsy exclusive!!! The palette is great for day & night wear. It’s the perfect smokey eye palette (matte-shimmer combo) and the best part is it came in full size with Ipsy sealed sticker. Do try these little palettes.
treStiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude – 0.7 g/ o.o2 oz Value $10.67
I received treStiQue mini eye shadow crayon in one of my previous Ipsy bag and really liked their product. The lip crayon went on smooth and is moisturizing. Though I did not like the color much (the lightest from their collection), as it looks washed off on my lips, it can be used as lip primer or a BB lip Balm. Would have appreciated a deeper/vivid color.
Evelyn Iona Cosmetics Cream Blush in ASH – Sample Size (0.06 oz) Value $4.00
This tiny little blush won my heart and is definitely making a place in my travel kit. The shade is super pretty and gives a natural dewy glow to the cheeks. It’s creamy, great for sensitive skin and it’s cruelty free. Tip: Best applied with finger tips. Highly Recommended.
Vasanti BrightenUp Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – Travel Size (20 g) Value $10.00
Simply loved this Exfoliating cleanser. It contains papaya, micro-crystals and aloe which helps in improving skin texture and making skin soft and radiant. I have received this travel sized one before in my June Birchbox. Note: Its not a daily cleanser, use 3-4 times a week. Highly Recommended.

Bayberry Naturals Rosehip & Hibiscus Moisturizer – Sample Size (15 ml) Value $1.98
FNP Review: For me NYX and Vasanti made the bag totally September Glam bag worth it. NYX came in full size which rarely happens with $10 subscription boxes/bags. Though I am not the fan of the nude colored lip crayon, it still can be used as a lip primer and all the other products are useful in day to day, which makes this month’s bag a Hit for me. What did not impress me was the golden makeup pouch/bag, my hopes were up by the August glam bag.
Was the bag worth 10$ for me? Yes, definitely worth the money!!!
FNP Rating: 4.2/5
