Ipsy Glam Bag Unboxing and First Impressions August 2017

Hello, hello!

Today I’m unboxing my Ipsy Glam Bag for August – it arrived on the 17th, the same day that I returned home from my vacation. All info in italics is taken from the Ipsy website.

Here’s what was in this month’s bag:

The Balm Voyage Vol. 2 Shadow in Kuwakaribisha

  • Our fave new way to get glowing: this pale peachy powder is super pigmented, shimmery but not sparkly, and is totally buildable (in case you want your highlight to be extra extra).
  • We apply this underneath our brow bones and at the inner corners of our eyes whenever we need to wake things up a lil bit (AKA every day).
  • Looking for a neutral eyeshadow to balance out cat eyes, cut creases, and all that fun stuff? Look no further.

This is a really pretty shadow / luminizer, so I’m happy to add it to my single shadow collection! *Cruelty free*

Naked Cosmetics HD Finishing Transluscent Powder

  • This finely milled powder is super lightweight so you’ll never look chalky or cakey.
  • We dusted it on before heading to ipsy HQ in the AM and our foundation looked mysteriously good all day. It definitely helps lengthen the wear of other makeup.
  • You can also wear it alone (just dust allover, no foundation needed) to quickly even things out, brighten, and tone down shine.
Eyeko Black Magic Mascara
  • This water-resistant, cruelty-free mascara manages to help curl even the straightest lashes. And if you apply after using a lash curler, it’s even crazier!
  • The curvy brush grabs onto every last lash coating it in jet black pigment.
  • It’s got Keratin and shea butter, which conditions your lashes.
  • The unique squeezy tube packaging means less waste!
This mascara is actually pretty good for a non-waterproof formulation, it doesn’t leave me with racoon eyes. The water resistant claim is true. It is a super dark black mascara (always my fave) and doesn’t make my eyelashes feel dry. However, I don’t think that it holds a curl very well for my stubborn long yet stick straight lashes. I have to curl my lashes, apply the mascara and then re-curl my lashes once the mascara dries.
Vitamasques Face Food Yoghurt Mask Duo
Ipsy Glam Bag Aug 2017

  • Call the crew over for a spa night in because these amazing masks are too good not to share.
  • The Strawberry Yoghurt Mask has (you guessed it) strawberry and yoghurt extract to smooth and illuminate.  
  • The Kiwi Yoghurt Mask works to soften and revitalize thanks to (mhm) kiwi and yoghurt extracts.
Crown Brush SS035 Medium Face Contour Brush
Ipsy Glam Bag Aug 2017
  • The synthetic bristles are insanely soft. Like, cuddling with puppies soft.
  • It really holds onto product which makes application way more precise and way less messy. (No need to clean up your vanity after!)
  • The versatile size works great for blush, contour, highlight, foundation, setting, and more.

Brushes are one of my fave things to receive from Ipsy, so I was super happy with this super soft synthetic brush. *Cruelty free*

This month’s bag was way better than last month! I’m happy that I received mostly cruelty free products.

Were you happy with your GlamBag this month? Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

  1. Ooh this is a nice bag! I still haven’t gotten mine 😓 – I hope it arrives today. I am also getting the Naked powder and I think the same theBalm shadow/highlighter. Stoked!

    The Eyeko mascara sounds great but like you, I have the curling issue.

    The Crown brush looks super nice! I never really get great brushes from Ipsy, for some reason. But everyone else does, haha!

  2. I love Crown Brushes! I need to get more (I only own a few).

    Whoa… that brand Naked Cosmetics is in Palm Harbor, FL? I work in Palm Harbor! It’s just up the highway from where I live.

      1. Yeah I’ve never heard of them either. I’m gonna have to find out where their HQ is and see if I can visit sometime. I got to visit the HQ of Deluvia Skincare/Demure Cosmetics earlier this summer (they’re located just a few miles from where I live). They were cool.

  3. The Balm eyeshadow is so pretty. It’s the sort of shade I love to wear. I need to get more singles so I’ll be adding this to my list😊 The face masks look great! It’s a shame fragrance is added x

  4. The Balm Eyeshadow is gorgeous, I’d love to try it as a highlight – that’s a mouthful though as a shade name!
    That Naked powder looks intriguing, but with you on the suspicious ingredients list that the website says different to the product, also only a 6month lifespan? Seems very short for a loose powder!
