AUGUST 2016 IPSY GLAM BAG REVIEW 

IPSY is a $10 a month beauty subscription service. Every month you’ll receive a makeup bag along with 5 products. Here’s what I got this month…


IN TRANSIT CAMERA CLOSE UP ($25)– this is described as a moisturizer, primer and mask in one. We’ve been having a hellish heat wave so far this month and skin has been acting crazy as result. Since I already have a gross heat rash, I didn’t want to take any chances on new skincare but I looked it and apparently it’s a favorite of Victoria Beckham. She’s probably 10-15 years older than me and looks a zillion times better than I have. Plus I mean… her husband… so yeah if she likes it I’m all in.

PETER LAMAS SUPREME RADIANCE COMPLEXION BOOSTER ($22)– again new skincare + rash = unknown results so I haven’t tried this yet either. But it has retinal and salicylic acid which are 2 ingredients that are friends to those of us over 30 so I’ll definitely use this once my face returns to normal

TARTE TARTEIST LASH PAINT ($10)– I’ve used this mascara before and I love it so this is a winner for me.

NOMAD MAKEUP SPICE MARKET EYESHADOW  ($10)– I’ve never heard of this brand before. The eyeshadow is really pretty red copper that reminds me of MAC COPPERING. It’s beautiful but I’ve got at least 10 similar colors in my collection so I’d probably use this once and then lose it. I’ll probably end up passing it off to someone who will give it a good home.

CIATE LONDON NAIL POLISH IN DANGEROUS AFFAIR ($15)- I normally don’t like getting nail polish in sub boxes but this deep red color is my fall and winter staple so I’m happy with it.

This month’s total value is $82! Not bad for a $10 investment. And I’ll use everything and the bag is cute so all and all a pretty great month for me.
