My August 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag!

Here it is! (Better late than never...) My August 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag. I was so excited to get my Glam Bag this month, I think I got a really good one. Even though a couple of variations of products I got weren't ideal for me, I was able to make a couple trades with a friend who also subscribes and we both got exactly what we wanted!

The theme for this month's bag is Glamor Academy and the bag is purple with a golden crest print on it. I know a lot of people didn't seem to like the pattern on the bag when the sneak peek was released but I actually kinda like it. Here is what I got inside:

  • Michael Todd Pumpkin Mask - 1oz sample
  • Urban Decay Lipstick in 69 (red) - mini size
  • MICA Beauty Shimmer Powder in Bronze - 0.10oz (Full size!)
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer - 0.25oz sample
  • Pixi Beauty Lash Booster Mascara in No. 2 Blackest Black - 0.105oz sample

 I was so excited to get the Urban Decay lipstick! However, I don't really wear red lipstick, ever. (Which is unfortunate because I seem to be getting a lot of reds in my subscription boxes lately, including my August Birchbox!) I also hate pumpkin (the smell, taste... pretty much everything about it. I'm weird, I know.) so I wasn't even interested in trying the pumpkin mask from Michael Todd. I was really hoping for the hot pink lipstick and the charcoal scrub.

This is where my friend comes in. She loved red lipstick and pumpkin. She received the Michael Todd Charcoal Scrub and the Urban Decay Lipstick in Anarchy, a hot pink. She was happy to trade me for my Pumpkin Mask and 69 (red) lipstick! So we both ended up with products we are super happy with.

Overall, this was a really good month! I feel like if Ipsy keeps it up it will definitely become my favorite subscription! Especially since my Birchbox was a little disappointing the last two months. I'll be posting my August Birchbox soon too, I will link it here.
