Ipsy Glam Bag: August 2017

My Ipsy Glam Bag for August came in the mail today, which is weird because I wasn't expecting it.  I'm not sure if my shipping email got lost in my junk mail or if it just never came but it's always a pleasant surprise to find my Ipsy Bag has arrived.

Good Vibes Bag
Let's start by looking at the bag.  When I got the notification that there were three different bag styles available this month, I was really hoping that this would be the one I would get!  I just love the saying as well as the pretty purple and pink color combination.  The other two were equally pretty but this one was just my favorite.  The bag is also really well made with a really nice inner lining.

Seraphine Botanicals
Ginger + Gold Illuminating Peach Gold Blush
I think this has potential to be an amazingly beautiful blush, though upon first swatching, it didn't seem super pigmented because it is so shimmery.  But on my fair skin, that's okay.  I also think it would make a lovely and subtle eyeshadow.  I can't wait to try it out tomorrow!

Glamour Dolls
Romantic Rose Blending Brush
This little blending brush seems awesome!  Mine did come a little bent from shipping but I think with washing and then drying it upside down, it should flatten out just fine.  It's a really good size for blending or even applying shadow to the crease if it isn't something that needs a precise application.  I'm really happy about it and it's also really cute as well.

The Balm Cosmetics
The Balm Voyage Vol II Eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha
$?? Really hard to get a price on this because it seems to be only sold in  palette form. 
This pretty little eyeshadow seems to be really great - pigmented and shimmery.  I just wish it wasn't so similar to so many other products that I've received from Ipsy.  This is the third shimmery beigey-gold eyeshadow/highlight that I've gotten.  But I think it's the nicest one so far and the one I'm most likely to actually use.

Promise Organic
Nourishing Coconut Milk Face Lotion with Hibiscus
$4.41 (Face Lotion is $14.99 for a 1.7 oz bottle.  I received 0.5 oz.)
I can't even pretend to get excited about getting lotion or moisturizers in my Ipsy bag.  My skin is very sensitive and I don't like to experiment with things like this on my face.  Maybe if I start giving them all one star reviews they'll stop sending me dinky little lotions?  The only one I really liked was the one with SPF.  More SPF, please!

Steve Laurant
Precision Tip Liner in Black
The link on Ipsy for this product does not actually take you to a page where this product is for sale and doesn't even take you to the page it says you're going.  No clue what's up with that.
Other than the super fishy website business, this product seems pretty good.  It swatched out a nice matte rich black color and seemed to be water resistant but not water proof.  We'll see how it works in the end.

Total Value: $22.40 + bag + eyeshadow + eyeliner

Conclusion: I really have no idea how much this bag was worth since I couldn't find any pricing on two major items.  But you're definitely still getting much more than what you're spending.  Besides the face lotion, I'm really pleased with everything I received and I'm really excited to do my makeup tomorrow and try several items out!  Overall, this bag so far was definitely worth it for me and I'm pretty excited about it.
