The September bag was Clue themed which was just adorable! There was a game that we played on the website that went along with it!



Info card.


I got Mrs. White!


Casualties Are Inevitable (eyeshadow) is a light mustard yellow with red sheen and gold to green shifting sparkles.
This is a lovely yellow-orange shade but it look a little strange on my skin. Not so much that I won't wear it but it definitely needs to be blended into a very warm brown to make sense. This is a gorgeous lid shade. The color does translate on me without a white base.


Accident Prone (eyeshadow) is a fern green base with a silver shift and sparkles.
This was the shadow I was least impressed with and the most disappointed in. I was hoping for the blue-green that it is in the container but instead it's more of a dusty green. Not a bad color, just not what I had wanted. I'd wear this as a halo because it is so dusty. This is a very dusty shade that needs some sort of base to translate well on me.


Guess Who's Gonna Get It (eyeshadow) is a sexy dark pink with copper sparkles.
Oh yeah, this is reminiscent of my high school emo look (pink glitter eyeliner and nothing else). This is best worn as a lid shade applied with your finger or a flat shader brush. A base isn't needed for this to translate on me.


Determined to Enjoy Myself (eyeshadow) is a blue turquoise with copper shift.
Another dusty shade. It's not quite as vibrant as I'd hoped so it does need a white base to translate on me. It's gorgeous on the lid but it does require some layering.


It's You and Me Honeybunch (eyeshadow) is a matte brown plum that can partner with any of the included shades.
Oh, yes. A deep cool-toned matte shadow. I like that they mention how this can be paired with any of the other shadows but it still isn't a complete look. It is good for smoking out the outer corner or it could be a transition shade if you are darker complected. It does pack on nicely but can be blended out for a more wearable shade.


Flames..On the Side of My Face (blush, eye safe) is a soft shimmery red-orange.
This is a gorgeous blush shade but it's far too shimmery for my taste. I prefer matte or satin finished blushes because I have quite a bit of pores in my cheek area and don't want to bring any more attention to them than necessary. This is a beautiful wash of color for a simple eye look and I wouldn't wear a white base under because I like the sheerness of this.


Top-to-bottom: Casualties are Inevitable, Accident Prone, Guess Who's Gonna Get It, Determined to Enjoy Myself, It's You and Me Honeybunch, & Flames..On the Side of My Face.


Overall, I really liked this month's bag, but I'll almost always love a bag that features a good matte shade. The theme was adorable and the game was a fun extra. (Side note: please no Skitles, bleh.)

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
