My August Ipsy Glam Bag Has Arrived

My August Ipsy Glam Bag Has Arrived

I had resisted the urge to look at the Ipsy website to see the contents of my Glam Bag before it arrived, so when it did, I was excited to see what I had. 

First of all is this month's makeup bag which I was pretty happy about. It was bright and colourful and had a lovely design on the front in shades of purple and pink - my favourite colours. According to the Ipsy website, there were two versions of the bag this month: the purple one I got and a green version with a slightly different image. I am happy I got the purple one, but what was inside it?

Well, as usual, I had five items, two lip products, one hair, one nail and one eye, so not too bad, but on closer inspection, I was left feeling a little disappointed.

Jersey Shore Cosmetics Mongongo Lip Conditioner in Vanilla Coconut Cream

My first item was this 0.15 oz lip conditioner. Normally I am happy with this type of product to try, but on this occasion, I can absolutely say that I will not even be opening this as I hate coconut with a passion. I hate the taste, texture, smell, in fact, everything - so this will go straight into the garbage I’m afraid.

tarte cosmetics deluxe LipSurgence™ lip crème in wonder

I love tarte products so was happy to see this .056 oz sample in my bag. Apparently, it contains Jojoba seed oil, shea butter and vitamin E to keep lips moisturized throughout the day. They say it can also be used as blush, so I’ll be interested to see how much I like this.

FORMULA X Nail Polish in Dollface

This is a 4 ml mini sample of nail polish from Formula X which I have never used before. The shade is a very pale baby pink, so not my normal choice, but I’ll happily try this out. Also, it is enriched with ShineXcel™—a luminescent ingredient that amps up the shine, so who am I to argue with that?

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Neapolitan Eyeshadow Palette

I’ve never heard of this brand before but the palette looks pretty with three sample shades of coordinating eyeshadow. I will definitely be trying this out soon and will review the product once I have. The palette weighs 1 oz and has no phthalates, fragrance or parabens.

NEUMA neuStyling smoothing crème®

Last but not least was my hair product, again from a company I hadn’t come across before, Neuma. This product has a unique blend of fruit and botanical extracts to fight frizz and flyaways while protecting hair from heat. The ends of my hair tend to get frizzy, so I want to try this to see if it does indeed smooth out my hair. This is a 1 oz tube. 

Of these five products, I am looking forward to trying three of them: Neuma, tarte, and Jelly Pong Pong. The nail polish is okay and I will give it a go, but it doesn’t excite me and the Jersey Shore Lip Conditioner is a definite no-no from me. So I am not as happy with this Glam Bag as I was with last months, but that is the nature of random sample bags, some you love, some you don’t.
