Here’s What I Received in My September Ipsy Bag

Ipsy Bag September 2014


I was late getting on the Ipsy subscriber bandwagon, having subscribed in March of this year. Since then I have loved every single bag they’ve sent out… with the exception of the August Ipsy bag. That bag was just not on par with what I’d received from them previously. Luckily, they’ve turned things around and the September bag is the same bag of awesome that I’d come to expect.

Here’s what I received in my September Ipsy bag:

Maybelline Master Glaze

Maybelline Master Glaze ($7.99) – Full Size Product! I was at CVS this past week and I was SO tempted to pick up a Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick and the only thing that stopped me was the amount I was about to spend on other purchases. I was super excited to find this stuffed into my Ipsy bag and my only hope is that it’s not too dark for my skin tone. The color is Make a Mauve.

Be a Bombshell Smooth Criminal Powder

Be a Bombshell Smooth Criminal Powder ($12) – Full Size Product! I have received quite a few Be a Bombshell products thanks to my subscription box addiction, but this is the first time I have received Smooth Criminal Powder. I believe it’s comparable to HD powder in that you apply it lightly over foundation to fine lines and pores. It’s getting great reviews on the Be a Bombshell website. Someone even described it as “life changing.” I don’t know about you, but I could you some life changing beauty products so I can’t wait to put this one to use.


Treat Yourself: Cowl Neck Tiered Tunic

Cowl Neck Tiered Tunic

I stumbled upon these Cowl Neck Tiered Tunics last night when I was browsing the Last Call by Neiman Marcus website and I have to tell you all: I am smitten! I would like one in every single color! I’m a little tunic crazy these days to begin with, but I like that these seem to be extra long. I tend to wear my tunics with leggings, so this is a necessity!

These Cowl Neck Tiered Tunics originally cost $75, but the everyday Last Call price is $55. Right now, however, you can get them for $38.50 each because through September 24 Last Call is taking an extra 30% off all women’s apparel.

For $38.50 I might just have to get them all.

Try a NuFace Mini Facial Toning Device *Free* for 14 Days

NuFace Mini Trial

Normally I don’t post *free trials* as they seem like something that one might find on TV or something, but I’m intrigued by this free trial that I came across and after spending some time researching it online felt like some of you might be interested as well.

For a limited time, Total Beauty is offering a free 14 day trial of the NuFace Mini. Normally this device costs $199, but with this offer all you’ll need to do is pay $9.99 shipping and handling.

Machines like this seem to be popping up everywhere, and honestly I didn’t know what they were for or how they worked. Apparently a NuFace is a facial toning device. With regular use it will allegedly lift and tone skin. The NuFace Mini is FDA “cleared” as an anti-aging device. The reviews posted on various store websites seem to be overwhelmingly positive, although the reviews on Amazon are more mixed (with some negative reviews noting that the device may break, it gave them headaches, or over-stimulated a thyroid).

Here’s how it works:

I watched the video above, and while I remain skeptical about the results, I think I might take advantage of this trial and then post a review. (Again, my cheap fingers are crossed that I don’t fall completely in love with this gadget!)

Terms of the free trial from Total Beauty (bolding of key points is mine):

Trial Request and Purchase Terms. Terms of payment are within Total Beauty’s sole discretion. When you request a free trial of a Product on this Site, you acknowledge and agree that: (1) you are participating in a trial period for use of the Product; (2) you will be charged immediately for the handling and shipping expenses incurred in shipping the Product to your designated shipping address; (3) your license to use and try out the Product is limited to the fourteen (14) day trial period that follows your receipt of the Product (the “Trial Period”); (4) payment for the Product is due and immediately payable following the conclusion of the Trial Period and you will be charged for the full purchase price after the conclusion of the Trial Offer; and (5) you agree to write a review of the Product on the Total Beauty site ( which you can do here ).

The Company shall have the absolute right to charge your credit card the full amount of the Product purchase price at the conclusion of the Trial Period. At any time during the Trial Period, if you are not satisfied with the Product, you may return it to Total Beauty (or its shipping agent); provided you first notify Total Beauty’s customer service of your intention to return the Product and you actually ship the product back to the Company prior to 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the last day of the Trial Period. If you elect to return a Product during the Trial Period, you must: (a) return it in the same condition in which the Product was received, ordinary wear and tear excepted; (b) use the original packaging; and (c) use the supplied prepaid return Fedex shipping label for shipment of the Product back to Total Beauty. All Product-related payments will be charged to the credit card you submit to Total Beauty.

If you do take advantage of this free trial, PLEASE pay attention to the return-by date so you don’t get stuck paying $199 for something you don’t want. Also, note that per the terms you MUST contact the company before returning the product.
