This is an exploration and review of my August Glam bag from Ipsy and the products I received and have or have not yet tried.
First of all, this bag is freaking adorable. It is right up my ally: I don’t love pink, but the fade and the message on the front and extremely me! “Good Vibes” is my motto, my Avon team name, and one of my favorite, go-to lines. I was so excited to see that I got this option out of the two, because it is SO perfect for me!
This is all of the booklet/paper stuff from this month’s bag. The larger booklet contained lots of info on their new Shopper program that gives you cash back when you shop online! I have used this program already (I got 25% cash back on a DLS Kitty blush to match my gorgeous, favorite highlighter Bellissima) and I am a fan.
The first product in my Ipsy bag this month was
LXMI Crème du Nil Pore-Refining Moisture Veil
in a .3 fl. oz. size. I think this is a pretty nice size for a moisturizer sample, because it is often enough to last a few weeks and really see how it works for your skin. I have not opened or tried this one yet–it is in my bag of moisturizers to try!
Next up was the
EYEKO Black Magic Mascara Deluxe
and I am very excited to try this! I have never tried a mascara in a tube like this one. The Eyeko liquid liner I have is absolutely amazing, so I have high hopes for this product. However, I have received so many mascaras lately that I have not had a chance to get into this one yet. It looks intriguing!
The third product in this Glam Bag was this
AURORA Pro Color Corrector in Pistachio
which I was a little nervous about. I have never really used a color corrector before. However, this is the perfect choice for a first one, because redness is my main skin concern (besides dryness). I used it for the first time today and really liked it! It is thin, so it is easy to blend, but it has enough coverage that it makes a real difference. I am very happy with what it does for my skin so far, and the liquid formula is really best for my dry skin.
The final product in this Ipsy bag was
theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha
which I am extremely happy with as a highlighter! It is a very pretty champagne kind of color that catches the light in a truly beautiful fashion. The first time I wore it I accidentally overapplied it, almost like a blush, and it was still really pretty (even though it was a little flashy, lol). The Balm shadows and shades that I get from ipsy are really neat to me, because they all come in these cute little book things. They can get a little dried out or difficult to get to, but overall I think it is a really neat way to try a whole pan of their products.
