Wow! I almost didn’t believe it when I saw it, but my September 2014 ipsy arrived today!

If you aren’t familiar, ipsy is $10/month and sends its members a beautiful Glam Bag with 4-6 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Their bags always have an incredible value (well over the $10 cost) and I am always amazed at how they do it.

The Bag

ipsy ships via DHL Global Mail.  My bag took only four days this month which was totally amazing.  Last month it took eleven days!

I didn’t get the little card we usually get from ipsy which tells you the monthly theme, lists the brands in that month’s bag, etc.  It’s all online though, so it’s not too big of a deal.

The September 2014 ipsy theme was “Street Style”.  There were eighteen different products this month and each bag included five of the eighteen.  I received the following variations:

~The ipsy Bag: This month’s ipsy bag was fabulous.  It’s super soft and I love the studs on it.  I think it fits the theme perfectly.

~Crown Brush Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush ($6.99):  I somehow missed that this was two brushes in one when I checked out the sneak peek so I am liking it better than I thought I would.  It’s not overly fancy, but it’ll come in handy for traveling.

~Pacifica Natural Water-Proof Eye Pencil (Gun Metals) (~$5.50): This looks to be about half of the size of a full-sized eye pencil so that’s how I calculated my price.  I would have preferred the Pacific Nail Polish in place of this (it was either the eye pencil or polish), but I am going to trade someone for it, so it worked out just fine.

~CAILYN Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss (Love Affair) ($18): I was very excited to see this in my Glam Room and rightfully so.  This color?  It’s absolutely gorgeous.  The gloss gives you both color and shine.  Fantastic!

~Mitchell and Peach Luxury Hand Cream ($17): So I know I said yesterday that Tocca hand cream was my favorite (and it is), but this is a super super close second.  I received it ages ago in a GLOSSYBOX and loved it.  It doesn’t smell like much, but it’s very moisturizing.

~Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser ($2.37): I have tried an assortment of items from this line, but this is the first time I have received the cleanser.  It’s another item that I will end up using for traveling since it’s such a good size for that.

All totaled I came up with a value of $49.86 for the September 2014 ipsy bag.  Considering that it was only $10, this is beyond incredible.  Some months I don’t absolutely love ipsy, but this month I did.  I would have been over the moon happy with just the hand cream and the lip gloss. The rest was just a bonus.

    The lip gloss is gorgeous. Was very impressed this month. I even bought my daughter a subscription. Her bag was considerably different then mine. She received the lipstick instead.

      The gloss is so so so pretty.

    love the hand cream also

    We got pretty different bags this month but I too wanted the polish. I just looked at the spoiler picture again and they have all the pretties on there and my bag is just boring. Not bad but boring. Looking at other peoples it looks like some got the pretty stuff and some got the boring stuff. They need to mix it up some more. hehe I do love the bag though.

      I wish they would at least let you customize your profile a bit more.

    I looooove my box this month. I received the crease brush, eyeliner ( brown), lip gloss (coral), eye shadow (dark gray) and a deep conditioner.
    The lip gloss is great. The formula is top notch.

    This was my first month with ipsy, and so far I’m loving it! I got the same bag as you. I love the brush, eyeliner, and hand cream. The formula of the lip gloss is great, but the colour doesn’t really work on me. I will try layering it with lipstick to see if I can make it work. The cleanser has a strange smell, but I will still try it out. The value of the bag is great!

    I would really appreciate anyone using my referral link:

    Do you ladies know what answers you need to put on the ipsy quiz to get brighter/more fun colors? I’ve gotten 5 bags now and I ALWAYS get nudes/beiges. I’m pale with blonde hair and those shades totally wash me out. Help! Please 🙂

    I got this exact bag, and I loved all of it! I wasn’t uber impressed with the eye pencil. I tried it, but didn’t feel it did much with my coloring. Love the lotion and LOVE the lip gloss! The brush was a nice addition as well. This silver bag may be my favorite thus far, too. I have been an ipsy subscriber for about a year. Most of the bags get tossed into a box – I’m collecting to use them for goodie bags for my daughter’s American Girl Spa themed party next summer…took me awhile to figure out what to do with them, but I figure she and her friends will love them! They can’t have this one though!
