Hey everyone! This past week, my summer ended and I began my final year of college. I took a little time away from blogging to get into my new routine, but I am back with more content to share!
For today, I am sharing what is in my August Ipsy glam bag! This month, Ipsy shared that “the future is bright… look inside and see what kind of beauty tomorrow holds for you.” While I don’t necessarily think that this bag is the cutest, I do think that the holographic finish is pretty cool, and it goes perfectly with this month’s theme of the future.
Inside the bag:
- Estate Cosmetics – Going Nutty Bronzer in Coco
I have been loving bronzers this summer, so I was really happy to see that this product was in my bag! This bronzer is the perfect color for my skin tone, and it was easily blendable as well! It didn’t look too harsh or muddy on my skin, which I appreciated. I didn’t expect this product to have a scent, but it smells amazing and it reminds me of the summer time! I rated this 5/5 stars.
- Kaleido Cosmetics – Muse Skin – Ultra-Fine Pearl Illuminator in Goddess
I own a couple products from this brand, so I was hopeful when I saw that I received another! I have a slight obsession with glowing skin, and I feel that this is the perfect summer highlighter! The golden shimmer completes a makeup look beautifully, and it is pigmented as well! I rated this product 4/5 stars.
- Illamasqua – Powder Eyeshadow in Invoke
When I first saw this silver/charcoal color, I thought it was going to be a bit too dramatic for me. After applying it, I realized this wasn’t exactly the case. I love applying shimmer shades on my lids, and this one was gorgeous. It is not the most pigmented eyeshadow, but it worked really well for the look I was going for! I think it is the perfect shadow for special occasions and/or holidays! I rated this 4/5 stars.
- Murad – Clarifying Cleanser
I was in need of a new cleanser, so I was happy to receive this. I have tried a couple products by Murad before, so I was looking forward to trying this one. I especially enjoy cleansing my face after wearing makeup or sweating during the day. While this one does not have the greatest scent, it does cleanse my face well, and I still plan on using it. It is not my favorite cleanser. I rated this 3/5 stars.
- Glamglow – BRIGHTEYES Illuminating Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream (my pick)
I chose to receive this product this month because I have very dark under eye circles, so I am always looking for new eye creams to try. This is the kind of product that you need to use for a little while before fully reviewing it. I have been using this since I received my glam bag, however I can’t really say if I have noticed a difference with my under eye area. With this product, a little goes a very long way, and it does take a while to settle into the skin. If I had to rate this product at the moment, I would give it 3/5 stars (however this may change as I continue to use it.)
