August Ipsy Glam Bag

This month, I received my 34th Ipsy Glam Bag. This month’s theme was “Sugar Highness.” Here is what I received:

eye
Rodial Smokey Eye Pen in Black – $21:
Create a bold eye with this kohl eyeliner. With super-rich pigment and gel-effect definition, this long-lasting soft formula can be easily blended to create a dramatic smokey eye.
Gift With Purchase over $70 with code IPSYGIFT until 9/10/16.
My thoughts: I have an eye liner collection going on now! I like this one because it is black, goes on easily, and can be blended.

hair
Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Blow Out Creme – $26 for 6 oz, I received 2 oz, a value of $8.67:
This heat protective Blow Out Crème aligns strands for smooth, easy brush glide to reduce styling time.
My thoughts: I haven’t used this yet. I never blow dry my hair! I do flat iron it sometimes after air drying so I could probably try it for that purpose.

bronzer
Beaute Basics 3 Tone Bronzer – $ unknown. Approximate value $5:
Three silky smooth shades perfect for all skin tones. All in one carry-anywhere palette for glow on-the-go.
30% off at beautebasics.com with code BBIPSY30 until 9/30/16, but I could not find this product on their site.
My thoughts: I think this is the 3rd 3 tone bronzer I have received and I still don’t know how to use them! I basically blended the colors together and applied it like blush. I liked how it looked.

nail
Ciate London Paint Pot in Spinning Teacups – $15:
No shrinking violets here. This lovely lavender will give your fall wardrobe a hit of whimsy. Let the purple reign.
30% off with code IPSTER until 9/30/16.
My thoughts: I haven’t used this yet but I do have a mini version of the same and I remember liking it. I feel like this is more of a spring color, but I may wear it in the winter anyway!

mascara
tarte cosmetics tarteist lash paint mascara – $23 for 7 ml, I received 3 ml, a value of $9.87:
A jet black lash paint mascara that increases lash volume by 2700% instantly with a patented soft bristle brush.
My thoughts: This went on pretty thickly and I don’t know if it increased lash volume by 2700%, but it did make a difference!

Once again, I pay $10 a month for these bags. I love seeing what comes my way each month! The value received this month was approximately $76.87, which was way more than last month! I love the bag this month, and my favorite item is the eye liner.
