Hey all! It’s time for my August Ipsy Glam Bag Plus review! This is a subscription box that will always include 5 full-sized items. And the items included are mostly luxe or higher end items. This is such a great value for the high quality items included.
I have pretty much enjoyed this subscription. I usually only use a couple of the items I receive each month, and so I’ve been debating keeping it. Unless I get tired of it, I think I’ll keep it until at least the end of the year.
Here’s what I received for August:
I realize this is a lot of products for an Ipsy Glam Bag Plus — I got three add-ons this month. Those are the top three products and I’ll talk about them later. Here’s what I received in my basic box:
- F.A.R.A.H. Show Me Magic Eye Brush Set ($50)
- Hey Honey Take it Off Exfoliating Honey Peel Off ($38)
- Purlisse Blue Lotus Essential Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 ($45)
- IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer with SPF 50+ ($39.50)
- TheBalm Cosmetics In The Balm of Your Hand Greatest Hits Volume 2 Palette ($32)
Total — $204.50 — Wow! That’s an amazing value for a $25 box.
They usually have a little booklet, but this month it was a fold out card. It does give details of all of the products I received.
The product of these three I’m most excited about is the Purlisse Blue Lotus Moisturizer. I am almost out of my current SPF moisturizer, so this came at a great time!
I have quite a few peel off masks I’m not using, so I will probably gift this one away. I do want to try other products from Hey Honey. It looks like a great brand.
I have been wanting to try the foundation. The shade is Light which might be a little dark one me normally, but it might be a good summer shade.
These brushes are gorgeous! I’m excited to use them. From top to bottom is 10F Concealer, 65EM Mini Shading, 105E Pencil, 15E Angled Brow and 35EM Mini Tapered.
I LOVE the handles! It’s like a mermaid icicle! LOL!
I am so glad I received this gorgeous palette! I’ve used it a couple of times already and love it. I’ve never tried a palette from TheBalm, I’ve only had a small sample of the Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter. I was going to swatch it, but forgot, so I’ll do a palette review for it.
These are my three add-ons this month! I usually don’t do add-ons, but these were $3 each and I have been wanting to try the Coco Cabana Cream and the Thrive Causemetics Mascara. So far, I am LOVING the mascara. It’s a fiber mascara so it doesn’t smudge.
I might try the gorgeous Pixi blush or I might save it for a giveaway…we’ll see!
I’m really happy with this month! Last month’s box was also good, so I’m on a roll!
I’ll use the palette, the brushes and the moisturizer. I might try out the foundation and will probably give the mask away. I am also happy with my add-ons.
Do you get Ipsy Glam Bag Plus? What did you get in your box this month?
