August 2018 Ipsy unboxing

It’s here! One of my favorite beauty subscriptions – Ipsy’s Glam Bag. It is is a 10$ per month makeup subscription. Each month they send out a Glam Bag that is filled with five makeup and skin care items based on a previously filled beauty profile. I have been subscribed since October of 2018 and I have never regretted it. One of the perks of being a subscriber is access to the Ipsy store where they have all kinds of brands from Absolute New York to Z Skin Cosmetics, and a lot of other brands in between such as MAC and Too Faced. Items sold at are eligible for Ipsy cash, which is up to 30% cash back (depending on the brand). As a bonus perk, Ipsy offers weekday deals that are even up to 95% off of their original value. Well, that one time it did. It mostly ranges from 50% to 75%, which is still a super awesome deal.

Let’s get back to the goodies!

This month’s Glam Bag is a solid peachy-orange color with a yellow border. The items this month were mostly makeup. The bag featured two face masks, a moisturizer, a blush, a highlighter, and an eyeshadow quad. Personally, I just love when my Glam Bags have more makeup items than skin care items.

1. Lab For You Juice Up Face Masks

I love getting face masks in my subscriptions. They are such a great way to perk up skin when used at least a couple of times per week. I had a slight difficulty finding these online without getting swarmed by a bunch of medical sites. Unfortunately, this item is not available in the Ipsy store.

2. Answer From Black Volume Gold Radiance Cream

I have not yet opened this moisturizer, but I am very excited to. It is supposed to be a gel-like cream with antioxidants from blackberries and gold pearl. I’m not sure what a gold pearl is, but it is supposed to help with camouflaging the aging process of the skin. This item came just perfect before my vacation. I will be able to take in on the plane with me due to its small size.

3. Ciate London Glow-To Highlighter

THIS highlighter! It has a shine to the moon and back and then to the moon again. This specific shade looks so very natural on my skin. It is intense and everything a highlighter is supposed to be. I will be obsessing over this highlighter for a long, long time.


4. Pixi By Petra Fresh Face Blush in Beach Rose

This shade is such a subtle pop of color. It wears well and the formula is very comfortable Unfortunately I have not been able to find this blush in the ipsy store, or even on the brand’s website. It is a shame because the formula is on point and I would like to be able to find this item again when I will run out.

          5. Bang Beauty Eyeshadow Quad in Smokey

From the moment that the first item from this brand appeared in one of my previous Glam Bags, I was in love. They have such amazing quality of their products, even though the packaging feels on the cheap side. This time they delivered once again. I was so excited to find these eyeshadows this month.


Let’s Get to the Overview

  1. Lab For You Face Masks – $9 for 5 masks
  2. Answer From Black Volume Gold Radiance Cream – not found
  3. Ciate London Glow-To highlighter – $29 for full size
  4. Pixi By Petra Fresh Face Blush – not found
  5. Bang Beauty Eyeshadow Quad – $18

I am impressed with this month’s selection for my glam bag. All the items were a hit. I was a little disappointed with the fact that I was not able to find a couple of the items. The best part of this Glam Bag was that the eyeshadow quad. It doubles the price of the bag.
