Ipsy Glambag August 2015

Hey Everyone!

Subscription bags have been around for a while now but this is the first time I have subscribed to one and to be completely honest so far so good..but I am yet to be convinced! I am very conservative when it comes to trying new products or new brands...I know coming from a beauty blogger it sounds rather weird but let me explain. I do quite thorough research before investing in any product whether its skincare, makeup or even haircare and its not that I don't like to try new products..Oh I love to try new products and I am constantly trying new products being the freak I am but even in this scenario I try products only which I am interested in and I know they are for my skin type..you get the drill right.

With subscription bags its like going on a blind date, you never know what you will get on your plate and most of the subscription services range quite high between 20$ to 40$ and I don't think I am ready to invest that amount on monthly basis. So when a friend suggested to try Ipsy I was a bit skeptical but with 10$ monthly I decided to bite the bullet and signed up. I just received my very first ipsy glambag and as much as I liked the contents I definitely think it could have been better!

My Ipsy Glambag for Aug 2015 came with the following
-> Travel size Marc Anthony Morocco Argan Oil 20.7ml
-> Sample size Juara Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask 10ml
-> Full size Ofra Cosmetics Lip Liner in the shade Wine
-> Full size Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen
-> Deluxe size Tarte Lipsurgence skintuitive lipgloss in Energy

My Thoughts -
First of all I absolutely love the pouch! Its super cute with black and white design and pink zipper! This may sound really weird but one of the reasons I decided to go for ipsy was because of these cute pouches they send. I have seen quite a few reviews on ipsy online and everytime they come up with some of the the most girly colorful cutest zipper bags ever! Love it!

Marc Anthony Morocco Argan oil came at the right time as I was looking for argan oil for my hair so I am pretty happy with that. Ofra cosmetics lip liner in the shade wine is very pretty everyday rosy brown shade, not unique but I can get a lot of use out of it plus the pigmentation and texture is good and not very dry so happy about that as well. Starlooks eyeliner pen has jumbo tip and I am used to fine tip liners so its definitely going to be a challenge to achieve a winged liner with it but the pigmentation is amazing, its very deep jet black but it does settle down to shiny finish and not matte which I am used to but its good to switch it up a little. Second last item is the Juara Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance mask, I have never heard of this brand before but I do enjoy a good mask so definitely will be trying out soon. Finally we have the Tarte Lipsurgence lipgloss in the shade Energy, this one was a bit disappointing! Its described as having skintuitive formula which responds to your skin's PH level and energy giving your personalized tint that is truly your own unique shade! For me personally it didnt do anything..did not change the color..nothing..nada! The formula is good, smooth and not very sticky but it does have very sweet fragrance which I didnt care for at all. 

Overall I am pretty happy with this month's Ipsy bag and I am hoping they do continue to deliver good products in the coming months especially since the holiday season is coming up I am truly excited to see what they have in store for their subscribers!

  1. Ipsy always looks like great value for money. I really wish to try it :)

  2. I had an Ipsy subscription but cancelled it. Too many disappointments! Plus I hated how some people got the better samples - it didn't make sense to me - and they never took into account my skintone :(

    1. I can totally understand that..I am gonna try till the end of this year..hoping they do consider the profile we fill out and cater to products suitable to our skin tones and types!
