Although I really like the beauty products I got in this month's Ipsy Glam Bag, I saw a preview with the new Urban Decay Revolution lipstick and was excited to get one. Unfortunately, I didn't receive one in my bag. Go figure.
But I did get a bunch of products that I know I'll use. This month's theme is Glamour Academy because school is almost in session and of course we all want to look good.
For the month of August, I received:
♥Pixi's Lash Boost Mascara (full size $17)
♥Chella's Dazzling Dark Brown Eyebrow Color (full size $18)
♥Pacifica's Alight Mulit-Mineral BB Cream (full size $16, sample $5ish)
♥Noya's Natual Cherry Lip Balm (full size $4)
♥Michael Todd's Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub (full size $18, sample $6ish)
This month's bag was worth around $50! I'm not 100% sure if I got the full size of the Pixi mascara, but it doesn't have any volume measurements on the product or on the website, so I'm just going to say I did.
Pixi's Lash Boost Mascara
I generally don't wear mascara ever. I know, shocker. But luckily I was blessed with thick and long lashes, so when I do wear mascara I look like I have doll's lashes. Maybe that's appealing to some people, but not to me. However, I really love the wand on this mascara and it doesn't add too much mascara to my eyelashes. And damn is this stuff waterproof. When I tested it on my arm, it wouldn't budge when I tried to scrub it off, but it did come off with my Almay make up remover pads.
Chella's Dazzling Dark Brown Eyebrow Color
I actually thought this was an eyeliner at first because of the dark color. It's a little dark for my eyebrows, but if I put it on lightly it looks great. I think I'm going to use this as both an eyeliner and an eyebrow pencil because why not? Also, it stays in place really well.
Pacifica's Alight Mulit-Mineral BB Cream
This BB cream is supposed to be a one-color-for-everyone kind of thing, but it's a little dark / orange on me. It has a subtle sparkle, but a lot of subtle sparkle, so I wouldn't put this all over my face. I will however be using this as a highlighter on my cheeks. I also like that this product is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and made in the U.S.
Noya's Natual Cherry Lip Balm
Oh man do I love lip balm. I bring one with me wherever I go and keep one on my bedside table at all times. While I love that this is all-natural, preservative-free, kosher, and made in the U.S., the cherry flavor reminds me of medicine. It's not a strong flavor or scent at all, but I don't think I would reach for this lip balm unless I had to. It is very nourishing though, so I'm thinking of trying one of the other flavors, like Classic or Spearmint, since they're $3.99.
Michael Todd's Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub
I'm super excited about this product. I absolutely love using scrubs on my face to get rid of the dead skin and make my face feel extra soft. Although I look like a zombie wearing it, it smells fresh and citrusy, and it made my skin feel nourished and soft. I will definitely be using this on a weekly basis.
