Ipsy Glam Bag: July 2017

My July Ipsy Glam Bag arrived this week and I am really excited to share with you what I received.

Gudetama Bag
While I can't really get on board with a fried egg on a makeup bag, this bag is really well made and not too small.

Beau Gâchis
Illuminator Brush

I'm excited about this brush but I'm a little unsure about it.  When I saw the preview of what was in my bag, I thought this was going to be bigger.  In real life, it's basically the size of a large eyeshadow brush.  I won't be able to test it out for a little bit though, as all my highlights are currently packed for the move.

Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet

$9.75 for 10mL ($39.00 for 40mL)
I'm fine with getting a moisturizer in my bag, but if it doesn't have SPF, I really have no use for it.  I guess I'll give this a try but I can't really get excited about it.

Ciaté London
Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid Liner in Black

$13.09 for 0.8g ($18.00 for 1.1g)
Now this is right up my alley!  Since I got my Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in my May Ipsy Bag, I've been loving using it and either smudging it afterward with a brush or applying it with a brush.  So I think if this eyeliner formula is good and the black is opaque, I could really love it.

OFRA Cosmetics
Eyeshadow in Gold Rush

$10.00 for 2 g
I'm excited about this eyeshadow because it's a perfect simple color that's really versatile.  My favorite shadows right now are matte but I think this color would make a really nice one shadow look.  I can't wait to try it!

Trifle Cosmetics
Raspberry Ripple - Ombré Radiance Blush Palette

$17.95 for 3g
When I saw my Ipsy preview online, I was so excited about this!  And then I got it and saw how absurdly small this is and the excitement wore right off.  This is so small I literally have eyeshadow trios that are bigger.  You would really have to be creative to get a blush brush into just one of these three colors.  I'll give it a try for sure and if it works out, it would be great for travel but my first impression is that it's just ridiculously too small to be useful as three separate blushes although I guess you could mix the three and it would still be smaller than most single blushes.

Total Value: $60.74 + bag

Conclusion: This bag was hit and miss for me.  I couple of things I'm excited about trying and a couple of things I'm disappointed in.  All in all, I still think it was worth it for $10 but I don't think it will be my favorite bag.

* I purchased this bag with my own money.
