Review | Ipsy Glam Bag (July)



as I mentioned in a previous post, I've recently decided to try out some subscription box services to see what all of the hype is about. I've subscribed to two food box (Graze and Naturebox), and two beauty box (Ipsy and Birchbox) services. I decided I would try two of each and keep the subscriptions I like the best. I finally got the July Ipsy Glam bag in the mail a few days ago. I wasn't sure if I was going to get a bag this month because they put everyone on a waitlist when you sign up (one thing I don't like about the company), but it's finally here for me to review. All of the Glam bags comes in small cosmetic bag. The subscription service costs $10 a month and comes with five different deluxe size beauty samples and each bag is different. This month, the Glam bag had the following (from left-right):
  1. Jor'el Parker Classico Perfume - I absolutely hate the smell of this perfume. I typically like perfumes that are a fruity or floral scent. This perfume smells like an old lady type of perfume, and I most likely will not use it.

  2. Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Balm in "French Kiss" - This is just a basic lip balm. It is a light pink color and smells delicious. I liked this product, but it doesn't do anything different than any other lip balms out there.

  3. Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics 2-in-1 Shadow Liner - I typically don't go for brown eyeliners, but this is a pretty copper color that can be used as an eyeliner or as an eyeshadow pencil (similar to NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencils), which I think is really cool, but I'm most likely going to be using this product as a eyeshadow base.

  4. Eau Thermale Avene Clearance Gel - This is a gel based facial cleanser that is supposed to remove oil from your face and rid of impurities. I haven't tried this yet so I will post an individual review in a later blog post. 

  5. Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in "Park Avenue Princess" - This is BY FAR my favorite product I received in the July Glam Bag. This is a gorgeous mauve color with beautiful pigmentation. The only thing I didn't like about it is the fact that it's shimmery, but it still looks beautiful as either a blush or a highlighter! 

Overall, I was disappointed by this months (and my first ever) glam bag, However, I am most likely going to keep the subscription until next month, and see if I get any samples then because I may have just received a bad bag.
