August 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag
The theme for this month Ipsy bag is Glamour Academy which I guess is Ipsy’s Back to School bag. Well let me say it has been awhile since I was in school LOL but I really like the products this month! I totally adore the bag. It’s a lovely purple with gold Glamour Academy crests splayed all over it. I love it so much I am using this bag to take with me for my hospital stay next week. Yes I am bringing makeup with me because yah never know when a cute doctor will show up HAHA kidding (not really).
So what's inside this pretty purple bag?
Chella Dazzling Dark Brown Eyebrow Color Pencil ($18 USD @Chella.com)
This type of fine tip mechanical pencil has become my favorite brow product de jour. Will Chella knock my Annabelle skinny brow pencil off it pedestal? We will have to see! The colour looks right so far...I really like the highlight pencil we recieved in the previous bag so I have high hopes for this. The Ipsy offer/coupon is open to US and Canadians with the exception of free delivery
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Anarchy ($22 @urbandecay.com)
I just love UDs promo page for the Revolution Lipstick: 'Creamy Badass'. Love it! I think I would like to get Naked or Protest just for an everyday-in-my-purse lipstick. Like I need another lipstick but hey I am a girl what can I say? The mini tube is sleek gunmetal. Totally badass! The colour I received, Anarchy, is a pretty bold pink. I wore it out for a coffee date with a friend and the waitress said she loved my lipstick. I felt all special after that. The Revolution lipsticks are creamy, hydrating and seemed to be long lasting.
MicaBeauty Eye Shadow in Bronze ($14.95 @micabeauty.com)
This is a pretty shade of loose shadow but I have to go thru my stash as I think I may have something pretty similar or exactly like this. If so I may put this in an upcoming giveaway. Lovely colour though.
Pixi Beauty Lash Booster Mascara in Blackest Black (£12.50 @pixibeauty.com)
Since this is a waterproof mini, I keeping this for my 'hospital makeup bag'. Yes even I am laughing at myself thinking I am going to be up to putting on makeup but at least I will have it on hand.
Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub ($18 @michaeltoddtrueorganics.com)
I was so excited to see this in my bag. I have been wanting to try Michael Todd for awhile now. Plus I love face scrubs. I am using my derma e microbrasion scrub right now (which is freaking awesone). Ipsy's offer is available worldwide 30% off purchase until Sept 30.
And there was this little extra: 1000 Ispters will get to host a Benefit Lash Bash party. I would go to that!
So how did you like this months Ipsy bag? I was over the moon excited to see the Urban Decay lipstick and the Michael Todd face scrub and more Chella. Heck I love everything in this month's bag! If you want to get in on Ipsy it is $10/month (plus $4.95 shipping for Canadians) at Ipsy.com or you can use my referral link here.
I will be on hiatus blog wise for the next few weeks depending on how I feel (having hip surgery). But I will have lots of time to catch up on reading my blog roll!
Ta ta for now...
