This is my 3rd Ipsy Glam Bag and like the previous 2 this has blown me over. Ipsy Glam Bag August 2016 version has a cute mermaid theme. The bag is incredibly cute and I am definitely going to reuse it. In fact I think I will reuse it as my makeup pouch. Inside the pouch is a note on this month’s theme, which reads Live that fantasy! Sounds incredible.
Ipsy Glam Bag | August 2016
I received a total of five products in my Ipsy Glam Bag August 2016 edition.
- Tarte LipSurgence™ lip crème in the shade wonder (Travel size)
- Jelly Pong Pong eyeshadow trio in Neapolitan Palette
- Ciate London nail polish in Spinning Teacup (Full Size)
- Mongongo nutrient dense anti-aging lip conditioner (Full Size)
- Symphony Beauty Makeup Cleansing Wipes with Cucumber and Aloe (Travel size)
Let’s have a brief look at the products.
Tarte LipSurgence™ lip crème in the shade wonder (Travel size)
This is a twist up lip crayon and the shade is a gorgeous mauve poppy shade. Even though this is a tiny pack I find that this will last a long time and isn’t the shade CUTE!
Jelly Pong Pong eyeshadow trio in Neapolitan Palette
This is the first product I am trying from this brand and I’ve got to say the name ‘jelly pong pong’ sounds funny! In this trio you get three bronzy shimmer shades. I have no idea what the shades are called. I haven’t used these yet but I am planning to carry this on my next vacation and see how it fares.
Ciate London nail polish in Spinning Teacup (Full Size)
The shade name reminds me of teacup saucer rides in theme parks. I wonder why they named the shade ‘Spinning teacup’. I wanted to show you guys the swatches but my nails look horrible. I don’t bite my nails but I cut them like I have bitten my nails off. Yikes! I’m just going to stick to describing the shade, which is a pretty pale lavender shade. This is a kind of shade I reach for often and I find it super pretty.
Mongongo nutrient dense anti-aging lip conditioner (Full Size)
What is with all the funny sounding names in this month’s bag? The brand calls this a nutrient dense anti-aging lip conditioner. This is a clear balm and has a strong vanilla coconut fragrance. When I mean the fragrance is strong it is strong! I keep sniffing it whenever I wear this balm. The balm is slightly waxy and you will feel it sitting on your lips. This isn’t a texture I am too fond off, but it nourishes my lips really well.
Symphony Beauty Makeup Cleansing Wipes with Cucumber and Aloe (Travel size)
Coming to the very last product – I am technically not sure whether you will categorize this under skincare or makeup. These are the symphony beauty makeup cleansing wipes with cucumber and aloe. I haven’t used this yet but I am planning to carry it on my weekend getaway. The size of these cleansing wipes is perfect to keep in my toiletry kit. It does have a mild cucumber aloe smell – nothing too appealing but nothing too off putting.
Overall another great Ipsy Glam Bag and I can’t wait to see what I will get next month.
Overall verdict: 4.5 / 5
