As I wait for this month's Ipsy bag to arrive, I figure now is a great time to catch up and share some thoughts on the products I received last month!
1.) Vasanti Cosmetics Brighten Up! Exfoliating Cleanser
This was by far my favorite item this month.  Ipsy sends mostly cosmetics samples, but I've found some of my favorite skincare brands and products through these bags.  And Vasanti is one of those brands.  This exfoliator is amazing, and I use it about twice a week for a deep cleansing.  It works without feeling harsh.  I highly recommend this cleanser; it even comes in a travel size tube for those worried about trying it out.

2.) City Color Cosmetics Lipstick in One Night Stand
I was pleasant surprised by this lipstick, but I have been loving darker colors lately.  This shade was a muted hot pink; it wasn't overly bright on me, but definitely not a color to wear to work!

3.) Crown Brush Oval Concealer Brush 
I don't use concealer, but this brush will get put to some other use!  Looks like they have a great selection of brushes on the website.

4.) Pixi by Petra Brow Powder Trio
I was very excited to get this.  My eyebrows are the most neglected part of the face when it comes to makeup, so this is a much needed item. I've loved all the Pixi products I've gotten-it's definitely a drugstore brand so not as high quality but definitely worth checking out.  
5.) NYX Cosmetics Ipsy Eyeshadow Trio
I'm a little tired of getting eyeshadows from Ipsy (I usually get one each month and they're all the same color!) But this is the perfect trio for a smokey eye, all in one palette!  I love that this is an Ipsy exclusive, but there are other trios available on the site.

I'm loving this rose gold bag as well.  I would definitely reuse it as a clutch.  Overall I'm happy with the products I sampled this month and look forward to seeing what's in store for October.
