Ipsy Glam Bag Aug ’14

Hey lovelies, it’s Ipsy time! I really do love all of my subscriptions so far but one of the reasons I love Ipsy is you get a different makeup bag each month! I know..who needs 12 makeup bags a year? But they are so super cute and make great gifts and/or other uses..like this month! Plus I just love seeing that pretty pink bubble mailer sitting in my mailbox full of goodies 🙂

Type: Beauty Box

Cost: $10/month

What: Monthly subscription of deluxe sample or full-sized beauty products in a different glam bag. This generally offers more full-size products than Birchbox but has a points system where you can claim extra goodies in your bag.

Ipsy includes a card with the month’s theme but doesn’t tell you about the products! (Get with the times Ipsy!) But you have a “Glam Room” on their website that tells you what you are receiving, where to buy, and even allows you to connect with other Ipsy members to trade items, if you like to be surprised with what you get avoid it like the plague. This month’s theme is Beauty Schooled which makes sense since school starts back up this month for most…bleh not looking forward to Monday!! And this month’s bag is a super cute plastic white bag with orange polka dots…not going to lie I am totally using this as a pencil/pen/highlighter case for school! I’m always losing those things in the bottom of my bookbag 🙂

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara sample (Value $5.50) Oh my lanta thank you Ipsy gods! I have been hearing about this mascara pretty much everywhere and I wanted to try it so bad but didn’t want to shell out the $22 just to try it…and now I can! This is a sample size but it will definitely be enough to tell whether I love it like I think I will. Let me know if you would like to see a full review on this bad boy!

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk sample (Value $6.46) I’ve seen pretty good reviews on this dry shampoo, I can’t wash my hair everyday so I am interested in seeing how this one works. I don’t generally have good luck with dry shampoos but i’ll give it a shot!

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Refiner sample (Value $11.25) I’ve never tried this primer before but this does seem to blend in pretty well. I will definitely use this under my makeup!

J. Cat Beauty Flying Solo Eye Shadow in Half Naked Full Size ($2.99) This eye shadow is super cute packaging! There is even a little tiny mirror hiding inside! The only downside is this shade is pretty light so I don’t know how much use it’ll really get, I might pass this one on.

Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo Lip Conditioner Full Size (Value $5.50) I

So this month’s glam bag had $31.70 (2 full-size, 3 samples) in products for a $10 bag! Not a bad deal! I am SO excited for the UD mascara and the dry shampoo because i’ve heard such amazing things! I’ve heard a few people complain that Ipsy hasn’t been following their beauty profile (survey on your preferences) but I haven’t had that problem yet since i’m pretty open to what I receive, this is only my second month with them though so how much can they actually screw it up since i’m still in honeymoon mode? Haha

If you’re interested in signing up for Ipsy do know that you’ll be put on a “wait list” but there are ways of getting off it early! If you’re thinking about doing it, give it a shot! For $10 a month, it is a fun beauty subscription!
