Ipsy August 2017 Glam Bag

Hey guys!

A bag of skincare/makeup from Ipsy every month is so satisfying. It’s like receiving a surprise of goodies. It’s a package I look forward to receiving every month along with my Sephora Play Box.

The theme for the month is “Good Vibes Only.”

Ipsy August Glam Bag

The color of the makeup bag has the hues of the sunset. 😍 A nice bag to end the summer season.

Ipsy August 2017 Glam Bag

My August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag includes the following items:

  • Yadah Silky Fit Concealer BB Power Brightening Cream (Light Beige)
  • Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo
  • GAVΓ‰E GOLD Heart of Gold Elixir
  • Eyeko Black Magic Mascara Deluxe
  • Firma Beauty 103 Angled Contour Brush

I love when I receive makeup brushes in my subscription. More to add to my rotation of brushes.

In today’s post, I’ll be reviewing the blush and the mascara.

Below are the swatches of the two shades. The light brown shade is on the left. The soft mauve shade is on the right.

There’s little pigmentation for the light brown shade. It would work well with blending out the harsh edges of your blush. The soft mauve is very subtle. Perfect for every day wear. The two blushes can add a little bit of glow to your cheeks because of the light sheen on the skin.

I like how the blush palette has a mirror at the bottom of the compact. Neat!

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara Deluxe

I have never used mascara in a squeeze tube before. The wand of the mascara isn’t straight but it’s really easy to use.

  • Water-resistant
  • Cruelty-free
  • Contains keratin and shea butter to help condition lashes

Here are my little Asian eyelashes without mascara.

Here are my eyelashes after two coats.

With Mascara

The mascara defined and lengthened my eyelashes. I’m really happy with the product. I really like how I can use this mascara during the day as makeup while it treats my eyelashes at the same time. Two for one. Pretty awesome!

With the squeeze tube design, you’re more likely to use up most of the product that’s in the tube. Less makeup wasted.

Ipsy is a great monthly subscription for those who love makeup but don’t like to splurge. Sometimes, you get makeup brushes in your glam bag as well. You get products based on your preferences when you set up your account.Β If you’ve never tried Ipsy, I would definitely recommend trying out a subscription for only $10 USD.

Thanks again for stopping by. Until next time!
