The theme for this month’s ipsy glam bag was Glamour Academy. The bag itself is purple with gold decoration.
My bag consisted of the following products:
Michael Todd True Organics Jojoba Charcoal Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub
Pacifica Alight Mulit-Mineral BB Cream
Pixi Lash Booster Mascara in Blackest Black
noya cherry lip balm
My rating for the August ipsy glam bag: C+
I’m usually VERY happy with my ipsy glam bag. It only costs $10 and usually gives really great deluxe or full sized products. This month I was disappointed. I was really hoping for an Urban Decay lipstick sample and the Michael Todd Pumpkin Mask. This bag still boasted a great value, but I won’t be able to use all of the products. The eyebrow pencil is much too dark for me, and the BB cream has an odd scent and looks almost yellow on my skin. I’m not a fan of pixi products–I think they’re overpriced and not the best quality. I’m excited about trying the Michael Todd True Organics Charcoal Scrub, and who doesn’t love cherry lip balm? Overall, the ipsy Glamour Academy bag rates at about a C+ on my scale. One of the best subscription boxes around, but not a great month.
