Review: August Ipsy Glam Bag

Here’s a look at my August Ipsy Glam Bag. Yes, still catching up on my blog posts. I’m taking some time off work for the holidays, so get ready to see lots of blog posts as I take the opportunity to catch up. 🙂

In my review, I’ve included the product, the benefits (as claimed by the product), the size I received and the value compared to the normal retail size and price. Often, a discount is available if you decide to purchase the retail product – I’ve included that info as well (offers are for a limited time). Keep in mind that Ipsy Glam Bags vary by person. What you receive is based on the profile you established. Here’s my review of the products I received in my December Ispy Glam Bag.

111skin

My thoughts: I’ve tried this product…and I love it! Smudge free eyeliner is a big thing with me. I’ve tried many brands, inexpensive to expensive, and have only come across a few that pass the test. I’ve seen commercials for this cosmetic brand, but honestly thought it was another one of those as-seen-on-tv “wonder products.” But this product is the real deal. I was disappointed to see that it was not available on Sephora’s website, but as I was writing this review, I checked Ulta’s website and found it – Merry early Christmas to me!

This month’s Ipsy Value: ~ $77+

Until next time, stay beautiful! ~Devon
