Ipsy Glam Bag August 2015

Ipsy Glam Bag is a beauty subscription that comes in a pink bubble mailer. It is $10USD per month and includes deluxe samples and full sized products. All of your products come in a reusable makeup bag. This months theme is Prep School.  All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive, based on answers you give to a survey and your reviews of your bags. There are plenty of spoilers with this one and you can see exactly what you will be getting a few days before your bag arrives by logging in to your account.

The included card tells you nothing but the theme as decided by their stylists.

Doucce Ultra Precision Eye Liner in Black-$22.00

This seems like it’s full sized.  I don’t need another black eye liner but it does seem to be the favorite colour for them to send out.  This goes on really nicely and there is no pulling or tugging.  It does smear a little with rubbing but should last pretty good.

Eco-Beauty Good Night. Night Cream.-15g $12.00

I had received the day cream of this a while ago and I’ve almost used it all up by now.  There is a surprising amount of lotion in these tubes.  I’ve found you don’t need that much to cover your whole face either.  I do have the same complaint with this one as the day though……it smells yucky for something I need to put on my face.

Albertini Divine Skin Hydrator-30mL $1.78

This is a new one for me, a lotion you apply while you are still in the shower.  You use this right at the end and just give it a quick rinse before you hop out.  It doesn’t really have much of scent but is supposed to keep moisture in your skin for up to 24 hours.

Hikara Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Merlot-$13.00

This gloss is super shiny.  The colour is maybe just a touch dark for everyday wear but only just.  It doesn’t feel sticky at all and it gives good coverage, not too sheer.  I’ve received lots of Hikari products from my boxes and I have found them to be good.

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Elegantly Wasted-$13.23

This colour is good.  It is a lavender more than a lilac but I think that’s because it has some grey undertones.  This is a 5 free polish that is also vegan and cruelty free.  For some reason this is just under the regular sized bottle they sell since it’s 15mL compared to 17mL.  If you really like them and nail polish you can get a monthly subscription of 2 polishes a month from their website.

The bag this month is great too!  It looks like houndstooth but it’s textured plastic.   They seem to favour the zipper being on one side over the top but they are roomy and hold a lot.

This months bag has a value of $62.01. There were three full sized items this month and the rest are multiple use sizes. I’m not sure how they all go with the theme but then again I never really do.There is nothing this month I really dislike, just the smell of one item.  I can maybe limit items that I don’t like by completing the mini surveys about each one and it lets them know how I feel about the type of stuff they send out.   I’m still not super thrilled with the website changes but am learning to get around on it.  If you would like to get in on the bag I’d love it if you’d use my link.  You can also visit their website by clicking here.
