August Ipsy Glam Bag

As usual, I got really excited about my Ipsy bag this month... and I peeked again because I wanted to know what I would be getting. 

I'm only meh about this months bag. It's okay, but not my fav. I'll probably use it for something though. I've been using my bags each month to organize my make up and hair accessories. This month also came with a note that you can apply to host a mascara party sponsored by Benefit Cosmetics and Ipsy. Kinda cool.

($10- I got a 1 oz sample, the regular 3.4 oz bottle is $34)

I love masks, and this one smells amazing, like pumpkin pie. I can't wait to try this one. I've never heard of Michael Todd before, but it's an all organic brand. 

Love love love lip balm, so this is perfect for me. I liked that it's a clear cherry lip balm, I feel like a lot of cherry lip balms are that fake red color that makes your lips look like you just sucked down a red Popsicle. This lip balm felt great on my lips and has a great fruity scent to it. A little strong, but not over powering.  

Pixi Lash Booster Mascara- ($17... maybe. I can't find anything about product size, but it's selling for $17 on Pixi's website)

Okay, this was the product in my glam bag that I was most excited about. Mascara is my one must have make up item, and I wear it almost every day... but I was a little disappointed. It's small, quite a bit smaller than my normal mascara. Maybe that is Pixi's "full size" but is seemed tiny to me. 

($5.33- $16 for 1oz, my bottle is .34 oz)
I love my Olay Fresh Effects BB cream that I got in my Influenster box last month, so I'm curious to see how this compares. It doesn't come in a particular shade, so I don't think it will add much coverage, but maybe I'm wrong about that. The Almay Smart Shade foundation that I wear in the winter comes out white but ends up matching my skin perfectly, so who knows. 

I love this color, absolutely perfect for me and something I could wear lightly on a daily basis and add a bit more for a night out (if I ever actually have one of those again). It's got a lot of shimmer in it, but not so much that it looks gaudy or overdone. 

Overall, this months bag was worth about $51.21, way higher than the $10 I pay per month for it. I really liked this month's bag because everything in it is something I will actually use.
