Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing this month's Ipsy bag with you. Since it's back to school time, this month's bag was "Glamour Academy" themed. The bag is purple and has a repeating pattern of a makeup themed coat of arms with the Ipsy logo and "Glamour Academy" on it.
NOYA Lip Balm. It's vanilla scented, all-natural, and kosher. Cool, but I have about 938 lip balms already. I REALLY wanted the Urban Decay lipstick sample, so receiving this instead bummed me out. Promo offer: 20% off at noyabeauty.com with code.
MICA BEAUTY Eye Shadow. The shade I received is "bronze." I'm not a fan of loose shadow, so this one will probably go in the donate pile. Promo offer: 25% off at micabeauty.com with code.
PIXI BEAUTY Lash Booster Mascara. Black mascara. I love hoarding mascaras (seriously, it's like my 2nd job), so I'm pretty excited about this one.. but I haven't used it yet to see what I think about it. I like the brush, though. The bristles are very stiff! Promo offer: 20% off at pixibeauty.com with code.
CHELLA Eye Brow Pencil. The color I received is "Dazzling Dark Brown" which is actually the appropriate color. Way to go, Ipsy! I generally prefer powder over pencils because I already have decently thick eyebrows on my own and pencils tend to make them overpower the rest of my face. Occasionally I use a NYX brow pencil, so I'll give this one a try as well. Promo offer: 20% off at chella.com with code.
MICHAEL TODD TRUE ORGANICS Jojoba Charcoal Exfoliating Facial Scrub. So along with mascaras, I also enjoy hoarding face scrubs and I've been wanting to try one with charcoal. I'm super excited to use this! I can't quite place the smell of it, but it's not unpleasant. This is a good size sample, too: 1 fl oz. Promo offer: 30% off at michaeltoddtrueorganics.com with code.
I'm giving this bag 4 out of 5 stars. Obviously, the UD would have made it a 5 star bag. And I promise I'll stop whining about the lipstick now, haha.
RATING: 4.0 out of 5 STARS
