Ipsy: September Sneak Peeks!

Thursday, August 29, 2013

And here we go! The beginning of a new month which means it's time for sneak peeks from Ipsy! As a reminder things are subject to change when it comes to sneak peeks and some guesses are speculative and may not be accurate unless there is confirmation.

August 29, 2013 - Sneak Peek #1
Eyes > Eye Shadow
A blend or quick brush of color is an easy timeless upgrade to any look!
It appears to be NYX Cosmetics Single Eye Shadow in either White or Pearl White though it IS possible it's actually a light gray color based on the angle of the light. It also looks like there will be no color variations on it but at this time that is speculative.

8/30/2013 CONFIRMED! It IS NYX Cosmetics Single Eye Shadows. According to the email sent out by Ipsy there will be 20 (out of 56) colors that will be sent. (Thanks to my Facebook readers for the heads up!)

September 3, 2013 - Sneak Peek #2
Eyes > Mascara
This must-have product has been a classic staple for every bombshell since its invention!
I have to be honest and say that when I first saw this my first thought was, "not another mascara!" At first I was dreading it because we just got a mascara last month but I did look back since January this year and we've only had mascara in our bags in the February (from Pop Beauty) and August bags (from Pixi Beauty). This month the mascara is from Elizabeth Mott - It's So Big Volumizing Mascara. (Thanks glitterati47 for finding and sharing the link on MakeupTalk!)

September 4, 2013 - Sneak Peek #3

There's no limit of classic looks you can create with three of these gorgeous staples in your September Glam Bag!
The variations which means Sneak Peek #4 may be a first look at the bag and there won't be a Sneak Peek #5 since THREE of the items from this sneak peek will be in our bag.
  1. Two types of lotions or hair products. (Ok, talk is it may be John Frieda shampoo/conditioner.)
    John Frieda Full Repair shampoo and conditioner (confirmed)
  2. Three items in foil packets. One looks to be a foil, one might be the bag and the other might be a Macadamia product - the oil or the mask? (see note #2 below)
  3. Three different liners - a twist up pencil, a kohl pencil and a marker.
  4. J.Cat Cosmetics lipstick in HoneyCrisp (confirmed)
  5. A square bottle next to the lipstick looking item, possibly nail polish. Butter London nail polish (confirmed)
  6. Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil (confirmed)
  7. Pop Beauty Lip Crayon (confirmed)
  8. Cailyn Cosmetics Tinted Lip Balm (confirmed)
Edit: I'm able to confirm that it's the Jesse's Girl Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black. Out of the three liners shown it's the one I want the most because I remember Jesse talking about it at CPNA in 2012 (when I went). He said something to the effect that because it's a Japanese-style calligraphy marker you'll be able to do fine lines with it or thicker lines depending on the pressure. The tip is a little longer than other markers since most have a shorter and/or fatter tip. I've been wanting to try it for a long time but my local RiteAid never carries it and I'd have to go to the main store in town to see if they have it. Hope I get this one!

Edit: OiiO on MakeupTalk was pretty much able to confirm it's the Freeman Beauty Blue Agave Facial Paper Mask, Star Fruit Facial Paper Mask and the Rose Facial Paper Mask. Here's her blog so check it out!

Edit: J.Cat Beauty has all but confirmed that at least one of their products will be in the September Glam Bag.

Edit: J.Cat has confirmed it's their lipstick in the September Ipsy Glambag.

Edit; September 10, 2013: First bags have begun to show up on Instagram. Confirmed Starlooks and Skyn Iceland.

Final edit: BIG thanks to Truckie on my Facebook wall for providing me with this picture confirming the last of the brands.

September 5, 2013 - Sneak Peek #4
Makeup > Makeup Sets
Top Secret Brand
No matter the time or the season, this month's Glam Bag will be a classic print you're going to fall in love with!
Possibly the final sneak peek since yesterday's sneak peek said that THREE of the items pictured would be sent to subscribers and we've seen Sneak Peek #1 and #2 which makes a total of five items as they said would be sent.

I like the shade of blue, hope the pattern looks as good as the color.

Edit: And the bag reveal. Well, that's kind of disappointing to me since it's not a pattern I'd typically go for. Love the color of the bag, dislike the pattern. Oh well, we don't always get what we want.

Bonus items: Due to Ipsy changing how referral bonuses are done if you want the bonus (referral) item for the month you need to select it by the 1st of the month. This month the two items to select from (or skip) are:
  • NYX Bronze Smokey Look Kit
  • Nicole by OPI Lacquer in Pretty in Plum
Redemption points: 1,000 points each. Allowed one bonus item per month.

  1. I think the spoiler pic color is Shimmery Silver.

    1. I'm also see people think it's possibly Toffee Shimmer. So while it was an easy guess on the brand not so much on the actual color. LOL

    2. Thats def not toffee but silver yes

    3. Gray is one of the #1 shades for fall from fashion week, so it would be right on trend to see gray.

    4. Looks like a dove grey to me, which supports Antonia's comment.

  2. I really like that they are sending out so many colors.

  3. I <3 that they are sending out a wide variety of colors. In the beginning everyone was griping and complaining how it was white or gray, and all that. Well they can't gripe anymore because we have no idea what color we are getting, and that's the fun of it! I enjoy getting makeups even if its something I wont use, it will be a Christmas or birthday gift that I don't have to buy down the road! :) :)

  5. I think Ipsy spoiler time is my favorite part of the month! Even more exciting than actually *getting* the bag haha.

    1. I agree! I love the spoiler pics and everyone guessing what it is (although there are definitely some makeup pro sleuths out there that know exactly what it is just from seeing a tiny corner of said mystery product in the pic!)

  6. If you look at the picture it almost looks like there's also a nail polish, which is behind the lipbalm tube or what ever tube that is.

  7. Antonia, I was thinking the same! There are several brands with that square bottle+square black top, so it could be anything from ELF to Illamasqua.

    1. I saw that just today! I'm super excited, and hoping I'll get one in my bag.

  8. I really, really want the eyeliner trio. I have enough lip products for right now, and I've been dying to try Jesse's Girl's eyeliner.

  9. You know, I kind of wonder if the thing everyone thinks is a lipstick might not be a mini of Buxom's eye primer? It looks remarkably similar to this photo: http://fablesinfashion.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/buxom-eye-primer-04.jpg.

    1. Oh that's NICE but it's not. :( Final updates posted. :D

  10. This comment has been removed by the author.

  11. I really hope I don't get the creamy pencil (which looks just like Chella's Ivory Lace Highlighter pencil that I got from ipsy's June bag) or the pop beauty lip crayon again.

    1. You shouldn't but if you do let them know ASAP!

  12. I'm glad they are sending out another mascara since the Pixi one was so disappointing. Hopefully this one is better.

  13. There is a Butter London discount?!?!? Woo hoo. I don't see what might be in the bag.

  14. im totally wanting the butter London polish, cailyn lip balm and the j cat lip stick! ah would love that! btw. your spoilers are amazing, so glad you keep us updated! keep up the great work :)
