It's almost October and I wanted to share with you what I got in my Fall 2017 FabFitFun Box + September Ipsy bag. Disclaimer: This content is NOT sponsored or affiliated. I just love both brands and the products I get each month/season! If you're interested in what I received in either one and have been thinking about getting either subscription, keep reading!
PS: If you are wondering where I got any of these photos from in this post, I took them myself with my iPhone 7 Plus in front of a lit up window in my dining room and used some of my favorite photo editing apps on my phone. To learn more about how I edit my photos, I will be sharing a blog post on that soon! So make sure you're subscribed to get notified everytime I publish new content!
..:: IPSY Bag ::..
First, I wanted to review my September 2017 Ipsy bag. I get this bag every single month for just $10. There's usually about 4-5 sample and/or full sized beauty products to try out. The bag design is different every single month which I freaking LOVE because I sort of have a bag obsession.
From Top to bottom of the photo to the left taken by yours truly:
The bag that the products came in this month is all black, faux leather, and spiked.
I LOVE the bag design this month. I use it for makeup products I want to take with me overnight.
COLOURPOP COSMETICS Brow Boss in Light Brown or Dark Brown ($5 Full-size)
This product makes it SUPER easy to fill in my brows! I definitely plan on buying the full sized product once I use this up.
LUXIE BEAUTY Luxie Rose Gold Medium Angled Shading Eye Brush 207 ($12)
I love using this brush for applying the peach colored blush to my eyelid for a base color in the crease.
PIXI BY PETRA Beauty Blush Duo In Peach Honey (Full-size is $18)
This product is so pretty! I love using the peach shade on the lid and the lighter shade as a highlight on my cheekbone!
SKINFOOD Egg White Perfect Pore Cleansing Foam ($18 Full-size)
I haven't tried this product out yet, but I heard it's great for tightening up your pores!
ADESSE NEW YORK Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Deception ($18 Full-size)
I also haven't tried out this product out yet, I'm not too sure about the color, but I'm down for testing it out.
..:: FABFITFUN Box ::..
The FabFitFun box is a lifestyle, fitness and beauty box that you can get in the mail every season (aka every 3 months) with a range of full-sized items. I LOVE getting this box because it gets me so excited about the change of seasons! Although it's still 80+ freaking degrees outside, I was really looking forward to the fall box.
The entire box retails for a total of $49.99 with about $377-$392 worth of full-sized products depending on two of the item choices you pick for four different products. My box this month came with a total of 10 products in addition to the 3 add-ons I picked that were on clearance on the website (those items are not listed below, but were 1. the ZOE AYLA 24-Piece Professional Make Up Brush Set in Black, 2. MAJI SPORTS Mint Colored Trigger Point Ball in Mesh Bag, and 3. MAJI SPORTS Massage Roller in Mint.)
MER-SEA & CO. Scarf ($98)
The one product I was most excited about receiving was this scarf!! Here is a not-the-best photo of me wearing it. I cannot wait to start wearing it outside with my fall outfits, but for now, i keep it for decor on my bed as well as a nice little blanket for lounging around the house. It is super soft + so cozy!
IMM LIVING Coxet Wire Heart Ceramic Jewelry Holder ($33)
This is so cute for bureau decor as well as for holding your favorite pieces of jewelry you wear often. I like to keep my favorite rings and earrings on the dish part, and hang my favorite chokers on the heart.
TRESTIQUE Matte Color & Shiny Balm Lip Crayon ($28)
As you can see from the photo to the left, I have two of these. The smaller one I had already gotten in one of my previous Ipsy bags, but this was the first time I had gotten a duplicate. The full sized one in the exact same color (Tuscan Wine & Syrah Balm) came in my FFF box. I love this dark red shade + the fact that it is matte as well.
WHISH BEAUTY Renewing Mud Mask ($48)
I LOVE using face masks, but I've never used a MUD mask before, so I'm excited to use this one on my skin!
DECO MIAMI Lavender Cuticle Oil ($12.50)
My hands definitley get beat up overtime and could really use a little TLC and moisturizer. I love my nails and how healthy they are currently, but I'm excited to give this product a try to really soften up the bed of my nails.
MOLR DENTAL CLUB Organic Carbon + Coconut Teeth Whitening Powder and Toothbrush ($43.95)
This product was one of the two boost choices I had for my box. The other item was an apple cider vinegar hair rinse that I plan on getting down the line to try out because I take so much pride in my hair. But I'm so excited to try out the charcoal powder because I've tried the Crest Whitening Strips in the past, but they hurt my teeth and made them super sensitive. So I'm hoping this works just as good as the Crest strips but without the downside of making my teeth too sensitive.
MYTAGALONGS Hot & Cold Gel Pack
This gel pack is in the CUTEST freakin packaging EVER!! I'm so excited to use this when I'm on the dot as well as for after workouts and hopefully not for any injuries in the near future. I just can't get over how CUTE this is!!
I don't know if you can really see it in the photo below, but the other boost choice I had was between a mia belt + a cable knit beanie. I don't really wear belts so I chose THE JETSET DIARIES Cable Knit Beanie in Black. It's pictured below in the top right corner. I'm so excited to wear this along with my mer-sea & co. scarf this season! It looks super cute overtop of my hair down whether it be straight or wavy, but it's a great way to cover up a bad hair day as well.
Another item in my FFF box was the PRIVATE PARTY Gym Bag pictured below in the top left corner of the photo. On the front of the bag it says "GYM & JUICE". This is so cute for using at the gym and even for an overnight bag and/or a shoe bag for travel.
The very last item in the box (pictured above among the center of the photo) was the COTTONELLE FreshCare Flushable Cleansing Cloths. This product is the only sponsored prodcut in the box. I love using these for on the go, as well as when I use the bathroom. I also use them for cleaning my cell phone and my apple watch throughout the day.
..:: Reasons I love these subscriptions ::..
1. Who doesn't love getting things in the mail? It feels like Christmas morning every time I get these in the mail and get to open them (my 6-year-old little sister loves helping me open them when I get them which makes it that more exciting).
2. I get to try out new products and brands I otherwise may not have known about. Some of my favorite products come from these subscriptions and I love that so much! Both companies do not hold back from finding some of the best beauty + lifestyle products on the market. I love using beauty + lifestyle products + is what my personal brand + blog is based around. So if you're into anything lifestyle + beauty related, you will love my content!
I have so much planned for the next few months so make sure you're on my list to get notified when I post new content! Also be sure to follow me on all my socials so we can get to know each other better!
