Unboxing: Ipsy Glam Bag August 2016

Price: $10.00 USD (plus $4.95 shipping to Canada) Number of items: 4-5 (+ a cute bag).

Ipsy is a monthly subscription service that introduces customers to new hair and beauty products. This month’s theme is Sugar Highness to inspire the dreamer in all of us. The beautiful illustrations were actually drawn by Michelle Phan! Is there anything this women can’t do! I love the design of this month’s bag. Fotor_14713035069330_resized

Now on to what I received;

Note: All prices have been converted to Canadian Dollars

Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco Deep Hydrating Treatment

Fotor_147130366774669
Full Size: $10.99 (250mL) Sample Size: $2.20 (50 mL)
Ipsy read my mind with this one! I’m in need of a deep conditioner and now I have it! This is sulfate-free and safe for colour-treated hair. Hurray!!

Pacifica Sundreams Lotus Infused Bronzer in Sunkissed

Fotor_147130407400551
Full Size: unclear
I guess it’s all about squeezing the last bits of summer we can! I know we still get warm months in September and sometimes even October but it’s really sad when the “summer months” are about to end…and don’t get me started on those back-to-school commercials. This is a pretty gold that you can build up. The shade is universal and I can see it complimFotor_147130414253092enting a variety of skin-types whether as bronzer or a highlight (on the web it looks like a duo coloured powder so I can see how it might work universally).
Also! This packaging is adorable! I loved unicorns growing up and this totally brings me back to those times!

Winky Lux Diamond Complexion Powder in Medium

Full Size: $25.86 – amount unknown
This is an all over powder that is infused with crushed-diamonds (ohh, how fancy). It’s really lightweight and soft. I think medium may work for my skin tone because it seemed to look OK when I swatched it.

IT Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Mini in Black

Fotor_147130376409250
Full Size: $28.43 (.5 g) Sample Size: $19.90 (.35 g)
Swatching this on my hand was a dream. It just glides on so easily and effortlessly. It also has ingredients like collagen and silk proteins. Now when they say waterproof, they really mean it. It wasn’t easy to remove the swatch with only soap, I needed both eye makeup remover and micellar water to get it off.

Ciate Paint Pot in Spinning Teacups

Full Size: $19.38 (13.5mL), this is a full size item
I don’t get the most excited about nail polish because I don’t wear them. I do like this colour and I’m sure I could give it to someone else.

My Thoughts

Except for the nail polish I’m really happy with this bag. Another set of products that I needed and can see myself using. I’m unable to give a fair total value this month since it was hard to find the amounts or prices for the full sizes for the Winky Lux Powder and Pacifica Bronzer.

What did you receive in your Ipsy this month? Any product you’re loving or disappointed with?

Lots of Luv,

Dal

  1. I don’t know what’s up with my carrier lately, but for about the last year, my bags have been seriously delayed at the switch between DHL and USPS. I’m living vicariously through other ipsters right now. I’m getting the hair treatment and the bronzer that you got. The unicorn case is really cute πŸ˜€

      • I did something similar with another Pacifica product. It was supposed to be a shadow, but all but the shimmer was invisible on my skin, so I started using it on my cheeks.

  2. I LOVE the artwork on this month’s bag! It really shows Michelle Phan’s creativity – she was in art school if I recall.
    That Pacifica bronzer looks really dark…? I’d use that as an eye shadow maybe.
    Aww that Ciate nail polish looks absolutely heavenly! Too bad you’re not a nail polish person!

  3. I’m getting the last 3 items too! I honestly thought that powder was a highlighter and was a little upset (I get way too many). If it matches my skin, I wouldn’t mind a powder! Hope I get the same colour polish as you, too!

    • I was happy that this wasn’t a highlighter or eye shadow too. I haven’t seen a face powder in any of my bags lately so I’m happy it’s a bit different.

      The polish is nice, just a bit thin so you have to layer it but the colour is easy to wear daily. I still have the swatch on my thumb and it’s really pretty on.

      You’re getting the IT cosmetics liner as well! I like it so far, just wish it was a full size.

      can’t wait to see the other items you get in your bag!
