ipsy "Street Style" September 2014 Glam Bag Review

I received my ipsy glam bag today and look at me, already got my post up about it! 

For those of you that don't know, ipsy is a monthly subscription service where or only $10/month (cancel at any time!) you get a Glam Bag (make up bag) filled with 4-5 beauty products curated by Michelle Phan! You get ipsyPoints for reviewing your items (and for doing other things within the site) that can be used toward purchases of additional items.

First things first, ipsy comes in a pretty envelope and inside is of course the Glam Bag stuffed with goodies.  The theme this month was "Street Style". Their Glam Room for this month isn't updated yet but the Glam Bag itself is probably my favorite bag ever.

ipsy doesn't send out information cards (Birchbox does, which I definitely prefer). however, an information card isn't really necessary since all items can be found in your "Glam Room" on their website and all have coupon codes for additional purchases if you want to buy some more. It looks like there were a possibility of 18 items this month (although multiple variations/shades of some items) and each subscriber got some combination of 5 of them depending on their preferences from their ipsy beauty quiz match. Now on to my goodies..

Crown Brush Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush - This seems like a really high quality brush so I was surprised to see it was pretty inexpensive and it serves as two! (~$6.99 for one brush)

Pacifica Natural Water-Proof Eye Pencil (in Fringe) - I don't ever wear anything besides black, so I'll be passing this on to a friend. The website doesn't say what size a full size pencil is but it does cost $11 so I'm estimating this sample is about 1/2 of that - although ipsy does send full size items sometimes, so it very well could be full size (~$5.50 for .026 oz sample)

Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask - I always like to try out new deep conditioners on my hair. Since I color it, it does tend to need a little extra love sometimes. (~$4.95 for 1 fl oz sample)

Cailyn Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss (in Love Affair) - This color seems a little more than "tinted" and totally not me! I'll be passing this on to a friend. (~$19.00 for .14 oz FULL SIZE sample)

Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser - I'm always excited to try new face cleansers since I tend to use the same one and feel like sometimes my face needs a good shock of something else (luckily, I don't have that sensitive of skin that I've ever had a bad reaction to trying new kinds) This one happens to be fragrence-free, alcohol-free, gluten-free and vegan. (~$2.33 for 1 fl oz sample)

Total Estimated Value: ~$38.77 (not including the bag itself or any shipping) 
Total Price Paid: $10 (free shipping)

Overall Impression: Even though two items will be passed along (one being the most valuable item), I really did like this bag! Especially the bag itself!
