August Ipsy Glam Bag Overview

Hi all! ❤ I just received my Ipsy glam bag for the month of August and decided to do a review of what I got 🙂 I subscribed to Ipsy back when it first started and stopped because I wasn’t satisfied with what I got. I just recently resubscribed to Ipsy because I saw their Gudetama bag and was hoping to receive that one 😥 Sadly, that did not happen but I was excited to restart my monthly subscription and see what products would be on my way in that magical pink bag.

August Ipsy Bag

For the month of August there were three type of bags with a good vibes only theme. There was the one from above, “Peace Love Lipstick”, “Wild & Free”, and “Good Vibes Only” all in different ombre color. So like every bag, each individual will receive 5 deluxe sized products with at least one being a full-sized item. I live in California so I paid around $10+tax and I believe if you live in the US shipping is free. So in all, you get a pretty good deal with what you pay for because the full-sized item is usually more than $10.

What I received:

  1. Seraphine Botanicals – FULL SIZED Liquid Coal Waterproof Liquid Liner $22 retail value (top left)
  2. sundays – FULL SIZED Nail Polish in No. 28 $18 retail value (middle left)
  3. Paula Dorf Cosmetics – Mini Universal Brow Pencil in Taupe $? (middle right)
  4. Promise Organic – Nourishing Coconut Milk Face Lotion w/Hibiscus ~$4 (far right)
  5. theBalm Cosmetics – theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 in Kuwakaribisha ~$3 value (bottom right)

The products inside

With this bag I received two full-sized products that came out to $40 on its own. So I must say I’m extremely happy because I really do like both products. The black eyeliner is supposed to be waterproof but I washed it off pretty easily (maybe because I left it on for like two seconds on my hand hehe). Now the nail polish, ahhh it is such a pretty color. I could easily wear this color everyday and not get tired of it because it just goes with everything.

Moving on to the brow pencil, the taupe color is actually a nice medium brown color that will probably go with anyone who has darker hair. It ran across my hand pretty smoothly and I look forward to seeing it on my brows. The Kuwakaribisha highlighter was a nice addition to my collection since it added a nice yellow shimmer to my skin. And lastly, the coconut milk face lotion nicely soften my hand and would soften my face with ease. However, I am not a huge fan of coconut and this product has a strong scent so if you’re not into the coconuts, this is not a good product for you. What type of scents do you dislike most? 😮

If you are looking to try out products before splurging your money, I would try out Ipsy and see what type of products you get. If you received an Ipsy bag, were you satisfied with everything? I certainly was and I look forward to the next one! 🙂 Hope you all have a great day! ⭐
