August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Review + swatches

I love the beginning of the month. Well, now August is almost half way over with but every month I have 3 things to look forward for: 1. My Ipsy glam bag, 2. The Sephora Play box, and 3. Setting new goals for the month. I love the Ipsy glam bags but now I have so many bags now that I don’t know what to do with them, any suggestions? This month there were 3 different designs. I got the orange/purple ombre with the words “Peace Love Lipstick” and isn’t that true! I guess this bag can be where I put all my lipsticks in when I’m traveling.

1. Heart of Gold Elixir:

Packaging on this little guy is so cute!!! This serum glides on your skin very nicely, smells amazing, and one of the ingredients is purified 24k liquid gold, say what!! It also has superfruits Mangosteen, Noni, Goji, and Acai to help fight environmental stressors, give your skin moisture, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. I’ll take 10 please. Now with serums you need to make sure you’re also applying a moisturizer on top so the serum can really sink down to the layers on your skin to give you flawless looking skin in no time.

2. Steve Laurant precision tip liner in black:

So far my favorite liquid liner is the tarteist double take eyeliner by Tarte but this one by Steve Laurant is super nice. Glides on very well, super black, doesn’t tug on your eye, and the best part is that you can get a really sharp wing, yes!!!

3. theBalm travel shadow in Willkommen:

I don’t like tiny single eyeshadows that I can put in my Z palette…. But besides that I do really love theBlam products and this eyeshadow is a very nice bronze color with gold undertones!

4. Paula dorf universal brow pencil in taupe:

This is a good size pencil for me to try out for a while to see if I really like it and I do! Now I do prefer my dipbrow by ABH for a nice strong brow but for the front of my brow I’m always looking for a soft pencil or powder to give me a softer look and this pencil does it! I like to use this pencil for any gaps missing in my brow to look more natural and the color is perfect for me, not too dark or too light.

5. HIKARI shimmer bronzer Flush:

This gives you the perfect summer glow! It has just the right shimmer with pink/bronze undertones, it’s gorgeous, and with this product you can go ahead and skip bronzer if you want since this acts like a blush and bronzer in one!

What did you get in your bag this month?

Until next time,
