My September Glam Bag ( a bit late )

So I just realized that I didn't do a review for this month's Ipsy glambag! *oops!*  

I was looking at my app this afternoon and, while browsing the "rewards" for this week, I realized that I failed to review my goodies for September!


P.S. I'm not a big fan of the actual bag this month :/ But shhh! 

Now on to the products...

Epice Restorative Toner
Not gonna lie gals...I didn't know what the hell the purpose of a "toner" was before I received this--so I Googled it. Hahahaha! Apparently, it's to replenish and revitalize your face after washing and help minimize the appearance of your pores ( if you didn't already know ) And you know...I kinda-really-like this stuff! I have been using it after washing my face every night and, although I haven't seen any real difference yet, I feel like my face is cleaner and the scent is wonderful! After using this product, I think I'm going to add a toner into my nighttime regimen from here on out. Thanks, Ipsy!

Dr. G Daily Safe BB Cream in Fair
I bought a BB cream from CoverGirl to try out and I hated it. But this stuff I love. I haven't checked the price of a full-sized bottle yet but if it's not too insane, I will be purchasing some of it. The coverage is phenomenal and could easily be worn with nothing else and still look fantastic. If my skin clears up enough, I'd feel fine walking around with just this on my face. My only gripe is that small 5 ml tube that you receive in the bag only seems about 1/4 full and you barely get a few uses out of it. I literally have to beat the damn thing just to get a pea-sized amount. Luckily, a little bit goes a long way...!

Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara
By far, my favorite mascara that I've received in one of my bags. I AM sick of getting mascara every. effin. month. but I really like this one. The tube is a little weird and it took me a minute to realize how to open it, but I love the brush...I love the formula...I LOVE this mascara!

Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask
After using Paul Mitchell shampoo, this mask for about 10-15 minutes AND a hair serum last week, my hair was BOSS ( but then I went to bed HAHA! ) But alas...I don't have the patience for deep conditioning my hair. It's a great conditioner for someone who takes the time and, well, cares...but I do not. I've already recommended it to one gal pal and gave her the discount code. Hopefully it works out for her!

DLS Eyeshadow in Teaser
My skin tone carries pink hues. This eye shadow is a yellow. This color does not look good on me. Maybe if I use it as an accent color, it won't be so bad. But I put it on my lids ONE time, and it just was not for me. The shadow itself stayed on nicely and the formula seems nice, but this shade...yeahnaaaah. Not for me, Bazzel...not for me.

I'm hoping for bigger things in October's bag...but we shall see. I guess we are only one day away from the release of the newest one ( oh man, I AM late with my post! ) I'm eager to see if they will make a cute Halloween-themed Glambag for it! :) Oh, the curiosity!!!
