Happy August Ipsters! I am so excited to share this months glam bag with you.

For those of you that are new to my website, or to Ipsy in general, Ipsy is a monthly subscription box that is $10 per month + shipping. It contains 5 products (some full sized), which are all name brand beauty/makeup products. It comes in a beautifully designed makeup bag, with a different theme every month.

Here is the contents of this months glam bag:

Mongono Lip Conditioner in Vanilla Coconut Cream by Jersey Shore Cosmetics:

This products has a wonderful, light, coconut smell that is not overpowering, but just perfect. After trying it, my lips felt wonderfully soft and moisturized. I really do enjoy this product. Another plus is that it is all organic so you don’t have to worry about the possibly harmful or unhealthy ingredients other products have. Definitely recommend!!

Deluxe Lipsurgence lip Creme in Wonder by Tarte Cosmetics:

Such a beautiful colour!! It works with my skin tone perfectly and I just absolutely adore this. It goes on very smooth, is easy to apply, and honestly, I think its my new favourite shade. I am so happy with this product and I will definitely be ordering it again!!

Makeup Cleansing Wipes by Symphony Beauty:

I have tried countless brands of makeup remover and this is definitely one of my new favourites. I have extremely sensitive skin, so it’s hard for me to find a makeup remover that doesn’t irritate me or give a reaction. This one was perfect. No irritation, nothing. I would definitely recommend for people with sensitive skin.

I don’t particularly love the smell of these wipes, but other than that they are great. They take off my makeup quickly and easily, with no hassle at all.

Nail polish in Dollface by Formula X:

I absolutely love this colour. Other than that, I am not a fan of this product. It is a very thick polish, so its harder to apply evenly, and it chipped only hours after applying. I don’t think that I would purchase this product if it was not included in my glam bag.

Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam by NYX Professional Makeup:

As you may know already, I am a huge fan of highlighters. They are something that I cannot go a day without in my makeup routine. This is a great colour, and I love the shade with my skin tone. I believe that it is just a little to shimmery for my taste though. I much rather prefer the highlighter that I got in my June Glam Bag.

So that’s it for the wonderful products in this month’s glam bag, but we’re not quite finished here….

I wanted to show you all a bit of a price match to compare the price of the bag, to the price of each product if you had bought them separately.

Mongono Lip Conditioner: $10

Lip Creme by Tarte Cosmetics: $30

Makeup Wipes by Symphony Beauty: $2.49 (for 10 wipes)

Nailpolish by Formula X: $13

Liquid Illuminator by NYX Professional Makeup: $11

TOTAL: $66.49

Note: Liquid illuminator is not a full sized product, so that cost is not accurate.

Overall, I paid $20.21 for this bag, including shipping to Canada.If you compare these prices, you are saving about $40 that you wouldn’t have if you bought each product individually. This shows that the cost of the bag is definitely worth it if you are a makeup lover that enjoys trying new products.
