I have been pretty eh and iffy about my last few ipsy bags. However, this month is the best it has been in a while. See what I got last month - September ipsy + PinchMe Unboxing

What I got

ECRU New York Acacia Protein BB Cream Beauty Balm for Hair
Cool concept bringing in the craze of BB creams into a hair product. Light almost lotiony consistency that leave my hair feeling smooth and soft. Smell amazing ! 

Épicé International Purifying Exfoliant
Buffs away all the gookies leaving behind fresh smooth, glowing skin. The grain of the exfoliate is very fine. I don't feel like it is liquid sandpaper on my face. 

Figs & Rouge Hand Cream
Cute packaging and smells great. Isn't overly greasy. A great light moisturizer. 

I have been dieing to try another Jessie's Girl product. I love the color I was sent as well. LOVE !!

Starlooks Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure
Great color. I don't mind that it is a smaller sample because it is in fact a color I will actually use. Not too sticky but not ultra thin. I really like this !! 

See video for swatches of these last two ^

Up next ... GLOSSYBOX ... Glossybox is a $21 a month subscription service ( or less if you subscripbe for a 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription). You get 5 deluxe sample beauty products that include niche, high-end, and emerging brands. For more info head over here.
It is always a pleasure receiving these boxes. I think I have yet to get one that I was totally displeased with ! Check out what I got last month - September Glossybox 

What I got : 

Proganix Volume Root Boost Finish + Body Builder – FULL SIZE $11.99
I am so glad that this product is not only full sized but that it is in a price range I am comfortable repurchasing this at. That is if I like it - I have yet to give it a try so I will get back to you on that.

tarte cosmetics Power Pigment in Flush – FULL SIZE $24
I love tarte. I love the color - while a bit deeper than I normally go for or get excited about. This pinky-red is light on the lips and long lasting. 

Vince Camuto Amore – .25 FL oz –  $12
I really am enjoying this fragrance. Like I said in the video the other girls we were on vaca with loved it too. 

Sesha Botanical Hydro Detox Mask –  $9
I haven't tried this yet but I tend to like these sort of facial masks. They scare my kids when I use them but hey that just means they may give me a few moments of peace.

Nails Inc in Westminister Bridge Matte Topcoat– FULL SIZE $10
You guys know I am a nail polish junkie. Glad to add this to my collection. On the suggestion card it mentions doing a french mani, applying this matte top coat all over the nail then going back with a regular shine top coat just over the tips for added dimension. I may have to give that a try ! 

Check this really cool tutorial I did on a glossy o matte zebra print nail design - Don't be afraid it is super easy !!   Matte Zebra Print Nail Design Tutorial

P.S. ^ This is an older video. As in before I even got a high definition camera so try not to laugh TOO hard :-) 

So what do you think about this months subscription boxes ???

I have YET to receive my Walmart box and I passed up on the Target one ( didn't seem worth my money IMO) so keep an eyeball out for that video / posts hopefully going to go up as soon as it arrives.
