FabFitFun FALL Unboxing + Ipsy September Bag

Yesterday was an "off" day.

Maybe it was the rain or something, but all day I felt off. Today's post was going to be my September Favorites video. I filmed it 3 times in a row and it didn't feel right. It felt off. 

It bothered me all day at work. I'm a bit of a perfectionist sometimes. Anyway, last night after work I came home to find my FabFitFun box on the doorstep. I turned on the lights, threw on some lipstick, and filmed this video. My off day finally felt right.

If you've ever wondered what I'm like in real life, watch this video. I sing. I dance with my annoyed dog. Good times. I hope it makes you laugh:

Here's a peek of some of the items (more details below):

  • Gold Radiance Mask--I cannot wait to try this! A gold mask? Count me in. $65

  • 3D White Brillance 2 Step System by Crest--sample

Taken straight from my Instagram, I present this September's Ipsy! This month's theme was Face Fashion.
  • First Aid Ultra Repair Cream--great moisturizer for dry skin, but not a life-changer for me. I already own this.
  • NYX shadow trio--great neutral palette
  • Octavio Molina Hair--another month, another sample of argan oil. I haven't tried this since I have so many!
  • Elizabeth Mott Queen of the Fill Tinted Brow Gel--I can always use brow gel. I like her mascara too.

  • Sometimes it's the simple things that thrill me most. I got one of the fall cups from Starbucks over the weekend. Who cares what was in it--I just love the design. It made me happy.


  1. I always love seeing what goodies you get in your box! I love the yellow umbrella and the purple tassel keychain! Your hair looks gorgeous!

  3. Looks like a great box! I like the colors in that NYX shadow palette!

  4. What a fun video! I think your hair looks great! I'm always so tempted to try these boxes out and then just forget about them. But there are some great products! My favorite is the purple tassel!

  5. I have been hearing so much about the Fab Fit Fun subscription box, maybe it's time to finally pull the trigger because you got some great stuff!

  6. Your ipsy bag was better than mine this month, and mine was really good! I do really like the nyx palette! I wore it yesterday and had three separate people ask me about my eye shadow! I wish I would have gotten your lipstick though!

  7. What a great Fab Fit Fun box! And such a deal at $49.99! I totally agree about the Starbucks...I was more excited for the cup design than the actual drink! Happy Wednesday!

  8. Both boxes have some really good things! That gold face mask sounds like such a fancy way to unwind!

  9. Awesome boxes all around, especially loving that bright and cheery umbrella. Perfect for a gloomy rainy day like we all had yesterday.

  12. I would like to try the gold mask too! I like the charm that raises awareness to domestic violence, it's very important. The Ipsy bag has a very beautiful lipstick color! I am glad you had an off day, my day yesterday was not very good, but today I am a bit better :)

  13. Such an awesome box! That yellow umbrella is the cutest!

  14. Can't wait to hear about that gold mask! How fun! And I do love little samples of lotions like in your Ipsy. They are the perfect size for my purse!

  15. I'm loving your darker shade and your video was so fun and light. The gold mask looks great - definitely review it soon!

  16. You got some great stuff in your box. That umbrella is so cute.

  17. Your FabFitFun box was pretty great! I love that yellow umbrella! Good stuff from Ipsy too!

  18. I love that you get makeup, jewelry, and health items as well. I love the lip color and I absolutely love that radiance mask as well. I definitely have to check that out. Love the video Elle.

  19. I hate those off days, I hope today is better! Getting fun mail always makes my days better too :) The fab fit fun box has some real goodies--fun mix of fitness/beauty/fashion. And I always think about signing up for Ipsy when I see your posts--I think it would be good for a beauty novice like me!

  20. ipsy is getting worse for me and I am honestly thinking of cancelling. I kept receiving crap that I clearly gave bad reviews for and I stated I didn't want. :-/

  21. if it didn't feel right, it didn't feel right! Keep those standards high :) I'm not really into any of these delivery beauty services, I find I don't use much of the stuff and it just clutters my house.

  22. I love this video! You totally remind me of one of my good friends, it freaks me out a little. The darker hair looks great!

  23. I've used a lot of the First Aid's Beauty products and have found most of them work great for me. I try others but I keep coming back to them. No matter what, you have try everything to find out what works best for you.

  24. Come OHHWWWNNNN! I love how cute you are & your accent (I am saying this because I have my own unique accent) #southerngirlsrock
    This video was so fun - I like the singing, throwing things Elle :)
    I cant wait to see what you think of the gold mask!
    Love that purse charm too.
    The dark hair looks fantastic on you!! Perfect for fall & winter - not too dark at all!
    ... & I always get looks because I smell everything :)
    What a great video!

  25. Fab Fit Fun is such a well rounded subscription box.

  26. The gold mask sounds awesome! Definitely let us know if that works out! The darker hair looks great. It looks glossy and healthy.

  27. Looks like you got some great stuff in your boxes this month!

  28. The umbrella!!! I really liked my Ipsy this month!!! Sometimes I feel "off" too!!! We need coffee, that'll fix it hahhaha

  29. I am glad that you weere able to turn your off day around! Sounds like you got some great stuff in your box.

  30. You have to tell me how you like the eyeshadow


  31. I have those days too where you just kinda blah. I'm glad you had a package to brighten your day. Purple looks so good on you!

  32. So many great things in that FabFitFun box!! Loving that tassel, and a gold mask sounds so fun!


  33. These boxes look like so much fun, and I can't wait to watch your video!

  34. Hmmmm I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I should hop on the subscription box train. In your opinion, what do you think is the best? Boxycharm seems to be one I'm really interested. Ipsy seems to be things I'd never purchase.

  35. I know these days "off" too well. Sometimes it is best to leave thins be and just try again another day.

  36. You are so cute! Love your FabFitFun Box-I need to give it a try!

  37. You got great things in that Fab Fit Fun box. Charlie is so cute! Have a great day!


  38. I dance with my pup, too! He hates it, but still does it... Go, figure... :D Glad everything got back to normal - sometimes all it takes is a little something to fix everything. x

  39. I agree that you should never do something when it doesn't feel right. Everything here looks great.

  40. Receiving that box in the mail would definitely make my off day better too :) Looks great contents!

  41. I love these unboxing posts! I used to have ipsy and your bag looks great this month!

    New followers,



  42. It was raining all day today and i agree it always makes for an off day, and sleepy too. Is it weird I want the umbrella?

  43. I have never heard of FabFitFun, but it looks like a great box! I got that eye shadow palette in my Ipsy box, too and I think it is hohum... I think my Urban Decay eye shadows have spoiled me. I didn't get any of your other products. I hate days that feel off!! I have def. had my share!


  44. Great unboxing! I watched it yesterday, but completely forgot to comment on the video. My husband watched it with me and was like, "Please tell me you're not going to subscribe to that box..." He knows me too well... I get suckered into subscription boxes so easily.

    Also, that NYX palette is so pretty!

  45. Girl, don't be ridiculous, you look AMAZING! No post-work mess going on at all! :-) What a nice box. The masks sound really good. Look forward to hearing more about that. Oh and I think it's just instinct to smell stuff, haha :-) I do that too, even when it really doesn't matter what the product smells like.

  46. i love first aid beauty and have a big tub of that moisturizer.

  47. I've always wanted to try those sheet mask things but I've held back because I'm not sure about those cut-outs being a universal fit! BUT a gold mask, screw it, I'd put that on my face regardless of fit lol!


  48. I loved your video and I'm glad your off day became good!! Sometimes I've filmed videos and they didn't feel right either. It bugs me so bad! And I love the new fall cups at Starbucks!

  49. haha this video made me laugh. So silly! Charlie looks so unamused :)

    And I jus watched your last video and commented on the hair so you answered my question :p I do like the darker color!

  50. You got so many great things from this box and for such a huge percentage off. I love the little clutch/pouch and that purple tassel. Both of those could be used in fun fashion outfits, too.

    Happy October Elle!

  51. I loved your energy in the video. You can tell you were having fun reviewing the products. Such great things they sent you and the darker hair color looks great btw! Nice and healthy looking!

  52. Hope your week's better!

    Also, I never comment on your youtube videos because I'm always watching it on my ipad as I get ready and do chores, but I have been following your youtube channel since basically the beginning. I remember when you didn't post pictures of your face on your blog. I love seeing how much you've grown and how good and positive of a person you've been though it all.

  53. You got two great boxes! I used to get Ipsy all the time and loved it. I've also been thinking about trying FFF...such a great deal and I love how it's only seasonal so it's more special. Love the reviews and video!

  54. Thanks for the little shout out at the end of the video! I get excited about stuff like that! Anyway, I loved this box, have you tried the flawless skin fluid yet? I LOVE it, it's my favorite thing in the box (so far). I haven't tried the masks yet...
