Yesterday, I received my September glambag in the mail, and I am so excited to show you what was curated for me this month! It was pretty awesome, and last night I was able to use a bunch of the products I received to help me go out with my good friend Christina.
Here is what was inside!
- Pixi by Petra Mattelustre Lipstick in Rose Naturelle
- Tarte cosmetics tarteist™ lash paint mascara
- Ulta3 Nail Colour in Sizzling Red
- BelláPierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Autumn Glow
- Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask
Last night, I was able to try the Briogeo deep conditioning mask when I took a shower, and the blush, mascara, and lipstick when I was getting ready to go out!
The Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask is said to work and show improvements after three continuous uses, however, since I only used it once it worked just like any other conditioner. It was a thicker texture (definitely more like a mask texture), but it didn’t have a strong smell. It wasn’t a bad scent, however, it wasn’t an appealing scent to me. Nonetheless, it worked just like every other conditioner for the most part, so maybe I will see more improvements with continuous use.
For the Pixi by Petra Mattelustre Lipstick in Rose Naturelle, I was really let down by this product. The color is nice and the texture is great (it’s more of a satin finish than a matte), but it smells salty! The smell of this lipstick is horrendous – it literally smells like I’m standing next to a bay or am standing under a boardwalk. The smell is so gross, that last night I put my ColourPop Ultra Matte lipstick in Viper over it so hide it. I was a little disappointed in this, but since it’s a sample size I guess I didn’t lose too much.
The Tarte cosmetics tarteist™ lash paint mascara is sooo amazing! After only one coat (without curling) my lashes were super long and defined and volumized! I was excited to receive this sample, and I am contemplating buying a full-sized tube because it worked so well and I loved it so much!
Finally, the BelláPierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Autumn Glow was super pretty, and looked really nice on my skin. It’s very peachy and warm in color, and it’s actually pearlized so it looks more like a blush highlight. Nonetheless, I can definitely see myself using this product a lot this fall when I don’t want super pink rosy cheeks (the cold temperatures this fall will take care of that for me anyway – my face becomes so red from the cold). I really liked this product, and it is full-size!
I have yet to try the Ulta3 Nail Colour in Sizzling Red, but I really want to go get my nails done soon (after my first paycheck), so I am hoping I can do that and use this nail polish.
Additionally, I had an Ipsy point-redemption in my bag this month too!! It’s the Coastal Scents Pearl Brush Trio!
This trio is three full-sized brushes – a small stipple brush, a medium eyeshadow brush, and a thin pointed brush. The bristles are very soft, and I am excited to try the stipple brush with my foundation! ❤ I really can’t believe I received all of these fabulous products for $10.00 USD plus free shipping!

I hope you all enjoyed this unbagging and review. This is my first glambag in months that has impressed me this much, so I have really high hopes for October’s glambag! Hopefully it’s Halloween themed!! ❤
