August Glam Bag

Here are my thoughts on this months Ipsy Glam Bag.

The bag itself: This month Ipsy was sending out three different bags instead of just one. I was curious as to which one I would get, and they actually sent me the one I liked the best. The other two said Peace Love Lipstick and Wild & Free. Although I would have been fine with any of them, but I just liked the purple and pink gradient color of this bag best.

AURORA Concealer (in shade Pale Ecru): Not a fan of this concealer at all. I tried using it on blemishes as well as dark circles under my eye. It provided very little coverage. It seemed to become somewhat translucent as it dried.

Crown Brush: This is a nice brush, but I already have a very similar one, so I didn’t really need it. I’ve been using it to apply highlighter.

theBALM Eyeshadow (in shade Kuwakaribisha): This is a very pale shade, which basically blends in with my skin, so I can’t use it as an eyeshadow. It works okay as a highlighter, but I already have multiple highlighters in this same shade.

EYEKO Black Magic Mascara: This mascara is okay. I didn’t really find anything special about it. I’ve used better mascara’s that made my lashes look longer and thicker.

Vitamasques Face Food Yoghurt Masks (Strawberry and Kiwi Fruit): I love these! I love face masks in general, but I thought these were nice. It has a nice fruity smell without being too strong, and I really liked the yogurt-like texture. It felt soothing on my skin, and my face felt smooth and hydrated after rinsing it off.

Overall: Ipsy definitely let me down this month. The only products I was excited to try was the face masks. Everything else I could have done without. When looking at the August product selection that they were choosing from, there were many other items I would have loved to have received. Hopefully I will enjoy next months bag more.
