September Ipsy Bag

So I did film an unpackaging video for this month but it didn't turn out, I hate my hair so much in that video, and Zoram kept distracting me... so you will never see it. This month is a photos only post, but I loved doing last month's, I loved how it turned out and apparently so did a lot of you, and I hope you like this month's as well (even if the pictures aren't nearly as good as last time).

I'm feeling like I'm in a good place with my blog right now. Fashion posts will be coming back regularly (hopefully), I have more book reviews coming as I have such a lengthy reading list and may be joining a real book club, and Heroes & Villains keeps me consistently posting on a weekly basis. I'm happy where I am right now. My blog is mostly books, writing, makeup, and a little bit of fashion, and quite honestly that's a perfect portrayal of my interests so I'm liking where this blog is going.

Sorry for all the rambling, don't know how necessary it was. Anyways, here's everything I got in my Ipsy bag this month. Also, just today I used three of these products in my makeup routine so I'll give a mini review/first impression notes on them. All good things today. P.S. This bag is beautiful and my new favorite bag I've ever received.

This morning I used this mascara and HOLY. COW. My lashes look just so amazing today, I'm in love. It gives them length, curl, fullness, and a dark, natural color. This mascara does clump my lashes a bit more than I'm used to, but it's not a messy sort of clump. It's the kind where you know they're wearing makeup, but it looks good rather than looking messy... I don't know how else to describe it. 

Anyways, after just one use I'm obsessed with this mascara. It's fairly expensive, but that's what makes Ipsy so great. $10 for all of these products! 

Oh! I forgot this earlier, if you want to get your own monthly Ipsy subscription you can CLICK HERE. It's $10 a month for five makeup/beauty products plus a bag. I personally think it's one of the best deals for subscription "boxes" and highly recommend it. (Affiliate Link)

I only used this on my lips and was very happy with the creaminess of the product. I personally get so irritated with lip colors that dry out my lips. I only go for the smoothest and creamiest ones. This, as a lip balm, works beautifully. 

However, as far as a stain goes, I don't know if it "stains" my lips as well as other products. I don't know exactly how long they intended for it to stain my lips, but it basically didn't last even half a day. I have not yet used it on my cheeks and it may get better "stain" results there. 

Overall, I will use this product a lot and I do love it, but I wouldn't consider it a stain.

I used this shadow this morning and was happy with it. I've been using brown shadows recently so I figured this would be similar, but this color has a lot more orange in it than I was expecting. Not a bad thing, just wasn't expected. But I like how cleanly this applies and stays well. I like it.

Sorry the pictures aren't as great as last month's. I was lazy and didn't get good lighting or use my real camera. That's my bad. 

Oh, and if you want real reviews on any of these products leave me a comment so I know!
