Subscription Box: September Ipsy Bag

So I began subscribing to Ipsy last month. I still love Sample Society from Beauty Bar for Allure but I was getting a lot of skincare and not as much makeup so I thought it was time for a break. Also, the Ipsy bag is $10 versus Sample Society's $15 and I was happy to save a few extra bucks every month as a graduate student. This month's bag was blue with a black floral pattern on it. I thought the bag looked more expensive until one actually touches it. From afar the black looks like raised velvet when in fact it is just part of the blue fabric. Not bad, but not great.

And below is what my bag contained. If you want to find out more about each product, click on the product name and it will link you to my product review if I haven't already reviewed the product below.

NYX single eyeshadow in Golden Poppy

I loved this product more than I anticipated. I'm a big fan of NYX products due to their quality and affordability. Initially, I was a little concerned when I received this shadow since it is yellow. I didn't think I could pull it off as an everyday shadow, and I was a bit disappointed to get it in my bag when others were receiving purples, greys, and blacks. However, I've come to find that this shadow is a great lid color when paired with a brown for the crease. On my MAC NW40 skintone, the yellow looks more like a champagne and brightens my lids.

Pop Crayon in Rose Romance

I was really excited to get this product in my bag. Unfortunately, for me, the color is not pigmented enough and makes my lips look dead. Basically, this doesn't work with darker skin tones. I'm trying to pair it with other lippies to see if I can get anything to work. Suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated, lol.
