IPSY August 2015 GLAM Bag

Posted on August 27, 2015


Hello Gorgeous! Today I am reviewing my FIRST-ever ipsy Glam Bag – for August 2015. My personalized ipsy makeup selections arrived in a metallic, bright-pink shipping package.

After reading a couple online reviews, I decided to sign-up for this monthly beauty sample program. The program is very tailored – as when you sign-up, the type of bag and samples you receive are determined by an online quiz about your favorite types of beauty products.

Each monthly bag costs $10.00 USD with free shipping and includes 4-5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products, plus a cute cosmetics bag! Right after I signed-up I told my sister about it and she signed up too! So, we will hopefully be monthly unveiling of each of our bags – so you can see the variety of products.

The August ipsy Glam Bag has a prep school theme, the small bag features a slick houndstooth black and white pattern and pink zipper.

The products I received are:

HIKARI COSMETICS Lip Gloss in merlot – 4.6 g/.16 oz, hikaricosmetics.com


I love this intense red-mauve gloss in Merlot. (other subscribers may have received this product in the color Salsa)

It is high-shine, is very pigmented and matte, with a thick-enough texture to have good staying power.

STARLOOKS Luxe Waterproof Eyeliner in Navy Seal – 0.2 oz


A long-wear eyeliner felt-tipped pen allows for smooth and even (no-tug) application of eye liner.

The color applies evenly and dries quickly.

TRUST FUND BEAUTY in Elegantly Wasted – 1.5 ml/0.50 oz

DSCN2359Elegantly Wasted is a lovely matte, pale grey/lavender nail polish.

Its quick-drying, chip resistant, non-toxic and cruelty-free.

I was very happy to receive this color. A lovely color that is not too bright for day.

BRIOGEO BlOSSOM & BLOOM hair spray for long-term thickness – 1.0 fl, and lastly – LATHER Ultra Mild Face Wash – 1.0 fl oz

The hair spray ingredients for this hair thickener include maltodextrin and natural sugar starch, with lemon and witch hazel extract to dissolve excess oil.

Ginger works to stimulate the scalp and support natural blood flow around hair follicles.

Its cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.


This foaming face wash is very mild and gentle on skin.

It includes surfactants, botanical extract, sulfate and is paraben-free.

Overall – a great first GLAM BAG! And, the small makeup bag is perfect for throwing in a tote or purse. If you subscribe to ipsy – let me know what products you received and which ones you are enjoying using.

Give Me Gorgeous!
