Retrospective: Ipsy September 2012

At this point, My Glam switched to being called Ipsy and this was their 10th month.  Ipsy Match hadn't started, so everyone got the same thing in their bag.

Ipsy September 2012: Month 2 ...beauty by you

The September 2012 bag

The bag had a detachable wrist strap! They need to do more bags like this. I used it so much I broke the zipper so badly I couldn't fix it.  Oh well.  I detached the strap and put it on the October 2012 bag, instead.

This smells so good! It has a very warm scent.  I don't think I ever noticed my split ends looking better (at least temporarily) because they were so bad at that point, but it sure did make my hair smell awesome.

$25 for 50 mL.  Sample size 10 mL, worth $5.

Second month in a row to feature a neon polish from the Circus collection.  Not that I'm complaining! This dries matte and takes 2 coats to reach a good opacity level.  I like it better with a top coat.

Set of 5 $29.95.  1 polish $5.99.

I don't know what happened to this.  I guess I didn't like it enough to keep track of where it was.  It seems a little juvenile to me.  I remember jane cosmetics from when I was young, and it is a bright pink, sparkly lip gloss.  Yeah.  I don't really care that I've lost it!

5 mL.  I couldn't find this anymore on the Jane website, but they at one point sold sets of 3 glosses for $9.99.  Single gloss value $3.33

This was just an individual pan without a container.  It is magnetic, but I didn't have a palette at that point so I kept it in the little sleeve it came in.  It's a pretty, shimmery medium brown.

$10, full size at 2g.

This is still one of my most-used items from Ipsy, and is in my top 5 Ipsy favorites.

This sells for $5.97 on the Wal-Mart website and for more other places.

Total Value $30.29

Another great bag from Ipsy.  I like that they sent a variety of items, they give a little of everything, as long as it is beauty related.

Ipsy costs $10/month, including shipping and sends you a box of 4-6 samples and sometimes full-sized products.  If you would like to sign up, my link is here and I will earn a free item if 2 people sign up with my link.
