August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

My current makeup subscription box is from Ipsy. I was a bit skeptical about a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box because I didn't want to end up with a bunch of products I couldn't use or didn't know how to use. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products in a cute makeup bag, and I was sold after checking out their previous bags. If you're not very adventurous with makeup like me, it's a great way to build your makeup collection on the cheap and expand your makeup expertise!

The August 2017 glam bag theme was Good Vibes Only and there were three bag designs available. I really like the quality of my bag this month and I'm thrilled to have a bag I'll actually use. I got the "wild & free" bag and I couldn't be happier. The gold tassel is super cute!

In my bag:
Make Up For Ever Mascara
theBalm cosmetics eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha (say what??)
Promise Organic coconut milk face lotion
Hikari cosmetics bronzer in Flush
Hey Honey facial scrub

I'm really happy to see Hey Honey in my glam bag. I've been a huge fan of the brand since discovering them in one of my bags last year.  
I rate the August Ipsy Glam Bag a 4/5.

More about the products inside:

Make Up For Ever Mascara- As much as I love a good mascara, I don't like the chemical smell of this particular sample.  I don't remember having this experience with other MUFE products, but in any case, I don't like putting "plastic-y" smelling products on my face :( I really wanted to love this but really couldn't get past the smell. Sorry guys!

theBalm cosmetics eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha- This shade can be found in theBalm Voyage Vol.2 Palette. This product can be used wet or dry, and serves many purposes...which as you know but now I looooove multi-use products!! This shade blends well and looks vibrant on my skin, but also delivers a pretty and soft shimmer. I'll most likely use this as a highlight and eye shadow :) I think it's clever that all the names for the colours in the palette are various words for "welcome". Very fitting for a travel themed product!

Promise Organic coconut milk face lotion- I love any product with coconut in it, and not just because it's trendy LOL. I'm not very familiar with Promise Organic products, but I can tell you that this is one of the best lotions I've used in a long time. I noticed an immediate improvement after using this lotion and I'll definitely buy the full size :) Gentle, yet effective= perfect! The formula was easily absorbed and smells fantastic. I'm happy to report that my skin responded well to this product. I give this lotion two thumbs up!!

Hikari cosmetics bronzer in Flush- I love a good bronzer and this multipurpose product can be used as one pigment by mixing them together, or you can use the four pigments separately. That's a big plus in my books! This looks like a bronzer and blush in one so you can get a bit more adventurous with your makeup game by playing around with the placement of the shades. I love looking like a sun kissed goddess and this definitely did the trick!

Hey Honey facial scrub- I'm a bit of a Hey Honey groupie because I love the way my skin is so soft after using a Hey Honey product. This scrub has a grainy texture that works well on all skin types. I was surprised to find that the cleansing crystals dissolved as I used more water, so it felt good knowing I wasn't washing harmful microbeads down the drain. I was left with a fresh face- free of dry patches, dirt, oil, and other nasties. Totally in luuuurve with this scrub!

As envious as I get about other glam bags, it seems there are times when Ipsy really knows me LOL. Did you get your August Glam Bag? I'd love to hear from you!
